CO or Shampoo Bars?

Like Tree2Likes


Also there are bars with AVC as one of the ingredients, so maybe you could skip the rinse if you got one of those. Kathleen from Sweetcreekherbs on etsy makes a AVC bar that gets great reviews. Oh yeah, and bobeam has a AVC bentonite clay bar that you might want to check out!

Yes, I totally forgot about those. Good call, WavyGirl! I have the ACV bar from NjoiCreations on Etsy, which is a great occasional substitute for the rinses if you are low-pooing, but as Kathymack pointed out, they are not sufficient to counteract the alkalinity of the poo bars.

Hmm, I hadn't tried that Bobeam bar. I have the CV Mud & Clay bar, which is also quite nice (Dead Sea mud and rhassoul clay) but does not have ACV. Karen's Body Beautiful has a wonderful-sounding bar with ACV that also contains shikaki and amla, which are both good for curl enhancement. At $12 for 3 ounces, it's on the expensive side, but KBB is coming to Target this month so I'm hoping the price will be more reasonable {{crosses fingers}}

I had a good first experience with a rinse, so as long as it keeps working that way, I'm happy!

Oh yeah, I can tell you from experience. I hennaed a year and 6 months ago and my wave pattern has been weaker with less spirals. However, it could also be that I began growing out my hair 2 months before that and long hair weighs everything down! D:

-Low porosity
