Godiva solid shampoo bar resembles a bar of vegetable based soap
Most liquid shampoos on the market include an array of synthetic ingredients. Lather isn’t necessary for a shampoo to clean well, but consumers typically expect shampoos to lather well. If it doesn’t create rich lather, they don’t think the product cleans all that well. The dilemma is that few all-natural ingredients exist that provide ample lather. Most liquid products contain synthetic lathering agents, including Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, commonly abbreviated as SLS. SLS draws moisture from the skin and can cause dryness and irritation. This is especially of concern to those with psoriasis, eczema, dry skin or scalp conditions.
A Godiva Solid Shampoo Bar resembles a bar of vegetable based soap, but it is formulated especially for hair. One of the many advantages of Godiva solid shampoo bars is that they can be formulated using all-natural ingredients including vegetable oils, vegetable butters, essential oils and other nutritives especially beneficial to the hair and scalp. They also tend to lather well.

The Disadvantages of Godiva Solid Shampoo Bars
It takes a little longer in the shower to cleanse the hair using a Godiva solid shampoo bar (Tip: Follow the How to Cleanse Your Hair Using a Godiva Solid Shampoo Bar section below).
The lather of some shampoo bars is a bit trickier to fully rinse out of the hair (This can be minimized by following our advice below).
If you often have overnight guests that do not bring their own personal selection of shampoo, they may feel awkward about using a Godiva solid shampoo bar on their hair.
How to Cleanse Your Hair Using a Godiva Solid Shampoo Bar
Over time, you will most likely develop your own hair cleansing style that best suits your hair type and length of your hair. Start, however, by following these guidelines:
After you enter the shower, rinse your hair well.
Rub the godiva solid shampoo bar directly onto your hair, working your way from your scalp down to the ends. Repeat until you have fully covered each section of your hair.
Massage your scalp and hair until a good lather forms.
Rinse the shampoo out of your hair.
Conditioning/Clarifying Your Hair Inexpensively
Combine 1 part apple cider vinegar to 9 parts water to create a clarifying rinse.
After you have shampooed your hair, pour the clarifying rinse over your hair and scalp so that it has completely covered each section of hair from root to ends.
Your hair will not smell like vinegar after you blow it dry or allow your hair to naturally dry.
Colours and design may vary.
