Travel light with our Thyme Travel Shampoo Bar. Scented with an invigorating blend of Lavender, Geranium and claryfying Thyme to revitalise the hair and awaken the senses. A unique shampoo bar that is mild enough for everyday use, yet long lasting and hard enough to cope with the rigors of travel.
We use an extremely high percentage of Fair-trade, Organic Shea butter, with the addition of Panthenol and Zinc Oxide which together, helps lock in moisture, strengthen hair and soothe sensitive scalps. The addition of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar helps create an even milder bar and balance the skin

Caring for your shampoo bar:
To gain maximum benefit from your shampoo bar use within 2 years of purchase, if you intend to keep it for longer, please store in a suitable cool dry & dark area such as a drawer. After using your shampoo bar, leave to drain on an appropriate soap dish, soap rest or even an upturned nail brush, this will help preserve the life of your natural shampoo bar.
Guidelines for Use:
We would like to advise that there is an initial transition period to be aware of when first using a Shampoo Bar. This happens because regular commercial shampoos/conditioners coat the hair strands with synthetic polymers and Silicones, these stick to the hair shaft and build up over a period of time, whereas a Natural Shampoo Bar doesn’t, It starts to work by gently cleansing the hair and scalp, which slowly in turn removes product build up therefore allowing the hair and scalp to breathe and over time the scalp will start producing its own oils again, naturally.
The results also depend quite heavily on the quality of water in your area, If you are living, or holidaying, in a hard water area, then the minerals from the hard water tend to stick to the hair shaft which make rinsing them away difficult. For this reason we also suggest doing a hair rinse with Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (AVC) or have a cut lemon handy. You only need 2 to 4 teaspoons of either added to a jug of warm water that will neutralise any soap residue, wash away any mineral build up, and condition the cuticles of the hair strands. We find that some users do not need to use a regular conditioner afterwards, they just let their hair dry naturally.
Please note that these are only guidelines and they can be found on the brown paper bag that your Shampoo Bar came in, for some it’s just about finding the right method for your hair type. We always recommend that you patch / Strand test an inconspicuous area first.
