Ditch the plastic and get all the feels about using a zero waste product, the Nomad Shampoo Bar! Ready for the plane, the ship, the trail or your home shower, these bars are a long lasting concentrated product that your hair is going to love!
The Nomad Shampoo bar is gently conditioning, however you may consider an additional conditioner if you have longer or curly hair.
To Use: Rub bar between wet hands to create lather. Apply lather to hair and scalp. Can also be used by gently running bar across hair directly. Massage and rinse out.
Note: This is a concentrated product that produces minimal lather. Take care not to over-wash your hair trying to produce big suds. More is not better.
Allow bar to dry between uses to maximize product longevity.
Deep Dive Details
Shampoo bars are pH balanced to be slightly acidic which is of the most benefit to hair and is one of the things that sets them apart from soap. Soap is alkaline and is a blend of oils and sodium hydroxide (Lye) in water. This is often referred to as Saponified oils, which is naming the chemical process that occurs when these two phases react to one another. In Cosmetic Chemistry a solid surfactant product that does not contain soap (like a shampoo bar) is considered a SynDet or Synthetic Detergent. This name is even given to products that contain all natural or naturally derived ingredients.
The Nomad Shampoo Bar uses hair loving emollients like Shea Butter and Castor Seed Oil, as well as a botanically derived silicone alternative, which promotes shine and manageability. Rhassoul Clay delivers silica and trace minerals to increase hair elasticity and promote hair growth.
The Nomad Shampoo Bar uses biodegradable surfactants SCI, SLSa, and CAPB, all derived from Coconut. What's a Surfactant you say? A surfactant is what gets you clean, but isn't soap.
Available in 2.5 ounce bar.
