- For best results, saturate your hair with water, wet the bar, and apply directly on your hair. Concentrate on places that need the most conditioning, such as the ends.
- Store your bars on a draining soap dish, soap saver, or dry washcloth and keep out of the stream of the shower when not in use to preserve the life of your bars.
- To avoid wasting the harder-to-use smaller bits of your conditioner bar, place the pieces into a heat-safe cup and add boiling water, where the pieces will dissolve and turn into a consistency similar to traditional liquid conditioner. Put mixture into a shower safe container (i.e. not glass).
Last month, I wrote a blog post all about how to get the most out of your shampoo bars, so it’s only natural that I should follow with a similar post on conditioner bars. (I’m not one to play favorites – I love the bars equally!) If you’re currently using Solid Roots conditioner bars to get your best hair, we thank you and so does our planet!
In my humble opinion, our solid conditioner bars are the best and easiest to use on the market, but they do take some getting used to if you’re used to using liquid conditioner. The bars are a solid choice (see what I did there?) for getting your most sleek, shiny, and healthy hair. They will glide easily onto the hair, effortlessly detangle, and rinse cleanly!
So, let’s get down to how to use them. First off, it’s worth mentioning that conditioner bars aren’t supposed to lather. They just won’t. No matter how hard you try. But you will know that the product is being deposited on the hair when you notice a slippery feeling on your hair, similar to liquid conditioner.
For best results, saturate your hair with water, wet the bar, and apply the bar directly on your hair concentrating on places that need the most conditioning, such as the ends. If you have longer hair, I suggest gathering your hair to the side and running the bar along the length of the hair. For shorter hair, you can just go at it and rub the bar all over the head. The active conditioning agent dissolves in warm water so best to keep rewetting your hair and bar if you need more conditioner applied. If you want to apply just a little bit of conditioner to certain areas, you can also rub the bars in between your hands and deposit the product from your hands. The product that comes off will be translucent, but will still be noticeable on the hands.
When not in use, be sure to keep your bars away from the stream of water in your shower or bath and store them on a shower dish that drains, soap saver, or place them on a dry washcloth in between uses, allowing them to dry out fully. This will preserve the life of your bars.
Want to avoid wasting the tiny bits of your conditioner bars? Here’s a tip: Place the pieces into a heat-safe cup and add boiling water. Put mixture into a shower safe container (i.e. not glass). The pieces will dissolve and turn into a consistency similar to traditional liquid conditioner. Only make 1-2 uses at a time and use within one week.
I hope this guide gets you the most out of your Solid Roots conditioner bars. As always, if you have any other questions about how to use your conditioner bar, don’t hesitate to reach out!
