Understanding the principals of transitioning and why you should
Be patient and don’t be tempted to go back
Other Tips and Considerations
◆ Be aware that not all body and hair shampoo soap bars are as ethical and natural as others and a lot including a popular hugh street brand contain palm oil that is said to be ’sustainably sourced‘.
◆ Our soaps are safe for use on children. We also make a baby soap that is even more sensitive and soft that you may prefer to start with on your children.
◆ Water is the key to a good lather. Too much water and you’ll be washing it a way and too little you wont get the same results so get your hands really wet before you start or use a wet face cloth to build it up.
◆ The thicker your hair the more you’ll need to try and work it in to your scalp to reach your roots.
◆ Brushing your hair twice a day during transitioning will encourage the spread of you natural oils through your hair and make it easier to remove excess oil when you wash it. You may find that your hair is more knotty than normal, this will pass but whilst it is you may find it easier to use a wide toothed comb.
◆ Soaps work best with soft water so you may find it take a little longer to transition if you have hard water but without comparison you probably won't notice the difference.
◆ Hormones effect the amount of sebum your body creates. Therefore young woman and woman during pregnancy and post pregnancy are likely to take longer to transition; and woman post menopause are likely to find it easier.
◆ A one off of shampoo use if you have to i.e. you've forgotten your soap won't do too much damage but we recommend trying to avoid it. Hairdressers are usually very accomodating if you take your soap with you for example.
