Deep Conditioning Henna Shampoo with Aloe Vera and Rich French Green Clay

This Deep Conditioning Henna Shampoo- Vegan friendly – Curly Hair Shampoo Bar cleanses and restores natural oils and life to your curly hair. Rich antioxidants conditions and hydrates hair for a smooth result.

Enjoy the Benefits from Organic Henna, Organic Aloe Vera and Rich French Green Clay.

This Shampoo bar can be used for all Hair types, but I especially made this bar for the extra conditioning properties for curly dry hair.

Now lets talk Porosity-
Porosity is your hair’s ability to absorb and retain moisture, oils, or chemicals like color. Low, medium, and high are different degrees of porosity. Due to damaging habits such as mechanical manipulation and color treatment, many with curly hair deal with high porosity hair.

Henna is a natural deep conditioner that coats the hair shaft, seals in moisture and natural oils, tightens the cuticle, enhances body, adds loads of shine and makes hair silky soft.
Since henna coats the hair shaft and tightens and closes the cuticle, hair is smoother, there is less tangling, hair is stronger and more resilient, and light is better reflected which creates a vibrant shine. Henna helps soften highly textured, coarse curly hair and its natural antifungal and antibacterial properties may help with dandruff, scaly scalp and excess shedding.

Coconut Oil is a great option for penetrating the hair shaft and sealing in moisture. It comes from the flesh of mature coconuts and has a multitude of health benefits for skin and hair. Great for reducing frizz and fighting . Coconut oil is one of the first oils someone with damaged hair should try.

Shea butter is a all-natural plant based butter. It is very nutritious since it contains lot of vitamins like A,E,K and F. Shea butter is rich in fatty acids (that’s vitamin F) that makes it a super duper sealant.

Castor oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and is high in Vitamin E, minerals, proteins, and Omega 6 and 9 beneficial fatty acids. Its unusually high ricinoleic acid ratio makes it beneficial to skin and hair.
Castor oil can be used on the scalp to help prevent and remedy hair loss and it is effective at this for several reasons. It’s antibacterial and anti fungal properties make it beneficial against follliculitus, dandruff and scalp infections and its ricinoleic acid content helps increase circulation to the scalp and improve hair growth.
Ricinoleic acid is also said to help balance scalp pH which can also help replenish the scalp’s natural oils and undo some of the damage of harsh chemical hair products (and even damage from no-poo, due to over alkalinity). The antioxidants in castor oil also support the keratin in hair and help make hair stronger, smoother and less frizzy.

Avocados are high in vitamins B and E, which work at the cellular level to protect and strengthen hair. Vitamin B is essential for hair growth. Vitamin E helps repair damage on the scalp, which may slow or prevent hair growing. Healthy hair grows half an inch every month. Using avocado in a conditioner or as a hair mask are the best ways to promote regular hair growth.

Aloe vera contains vitamins A, C, and E. All three of these vitamins contribute to cell turnover, promoting healthy cell growth and shiny hair. Vitamin B-12 and folic acid are also contained in aloe vera gel. Both of these components can keep your hair from falling out.
Aloe vera cleanses the hair follicle efficiently, stripping off extra sebum (oil) and residue from other hair products. But aloe vera doesn’t hurt your hair strands while it cleans. Unlike other chemicals in hair products, aloe vera is gentle and preserves the integrity of your hair.
Using aloe vera is a great way to get hair that looks healthier, shinier, and softer.

French Green Clay, Also known as sea clay, French green clay contains a variety of healing elements, including magnesium, calcium, and potassium, among others. It is often used in spa treatments, including facials and body masks, because it is great for removing dead skin cells.
The clay can also be used to cleanse oily hair types—it will draw dirt, oils, and toxins from the hair.

To create this shampoo bar, The Chocolate Chicken uses natural ingredients. Each bar of shampoo bar is made with saponified oils ( Organic Coconut oil, Sustainable Palm, Castor Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Shea butter, Canola Oil, Organic Avocado, Essential oils and fragrance) Henna Powder, Aloe Vera Powder and French Green Clay.

All of our shampoo bars are handmade in small batches and are paraben, silicone, sulfate free.

If you’re new to shampoo bars, you may notice that your hair behaves differently at first. It is normal for your hair to go through a transition period when switching from liquid shampoos to solid bar shampoos which don’t strip the scalp as liquid shampoos do. It will be different for everyone – anywhere from one week to a month. Some people never notice a transition period at all.

Our henna shampoo bars are not as strong as a pure henna treatment.
We have had a number of people with dyed hair use our henna bars without any problems.
That being said, all hair and hair dye is not created equal…so to be safe, try a test strand before using on your whole head.

Perfect for traveling especially by airline.

Dimensions: 3″diameter 1″thick weight 4 oz.
All of our bars are hand cut, size and color may vary.

How to use

Recommend using the eyelash serum at bedtime.
Ensure any makeup or other cosmetic products have been completely removed prior to application. Remove excess serum from the brush before applying it onto your lash line. Reapplying small amounts of product instead of a fully loaded applicator should prevent seepage into eyes.
Starting from the inner corner of your lash line and working outward, draw the applicator tip carefully along the skin at the base of the upper eyelashes in one continuous stroke.
