Default Shampoo bars and stylers

If you use a soap based shampoo bar do you need to change your styling products too?

I read something about the bars being unable to remove cones and was wondering if it can remove polyquats, PVP, etc?

I am trying a bar now but have been using it with my Aveda Be Curly Prep and Enhancer which have cones, protein, polyquat, PV/VA.

I'm very interested in the answer to this as well. I just switched back to Catwalk Curls Rock Curl Amplifier (from FSG). I don't know why I ever strayed--curls are BEAUTIFUL! But I'm concerned about build-up. I did a little reading and it seems like this could be a concern with shampoo bars?

Natural soap bars are made of saponified oils. They are fairly mild, just remove residual oils/butters, etc. Won't remove the chemicals.

There are bars that contain SLS (Lush calls their bars solid shampoo.) While they would remove the chemicals in your products, you wouldn't get the same results as with the gentler bars.

Thanks for the info! The bar does seem to clean my hair but maybe in the long run I will have build up.

I have many of the Lush bars, but I was trying to break away from SLS.

Maybe I will stick with the syndet bar I bought on Etsy which
contains sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, sodium cocoyl isethionate, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, stearic acid, sodium cocosulfate, coconut oil, sodium chloride, glycerin, fragrance, panthenol, dimethicone.
