How To Use a Shampoo Bar (and why you need to)
Let’s be honest ladies, rather than a sticky messy bar of soap, we want a pretty, no cleanup, easy pump to hold our shampoo. Just squirt and go!
Why would we want a bar that’s high maintenance? It sticks to the soap dish or the bottom of the shower if you’re me! And then try to clean that up, yuck.
So if its that much trouble why do I exclusively use a shampoo bar?
Because I found this one right in my own backyard…
Let me tell you the story:
A few years back two brothers were traveling the world and fell in love along the way. While spending time working and learning the culture in Vietnam, they were so impressed with the people and the beauty of the rainforest that they decided to stay.
It was then that they were introduced to a new and super innovative way of producing coconut oil without any heat, or nasty chemicals or even solvents.
You see they had been raised in a home (like yours and mine!) that valued a toxin-free lifestyle, so they decided to bring some of this precious oil back home. They were convinced it was like no other and wanted confirmation from family and friends. Getting the confirmation they needed they set out to build a chemical-free coconut oil brand and help change the world along the way, here is Lukes story…

When I was first introduced to these shampoo bars I was skeptical, you already know my thoughts on shampoo bars, but they sent me a box of heavenly scented bars to try (that’s HEAVENLY not heavily :D) and BOOM, they are scented with none other than my favorite thing in the world, Essential Oils! (they had me there) Check out the different scents HERE My favorite is between Lavender Orange and Rosemary 😉
Here’s how to use a shampoo bar;
The Skinny COCO hair guide says…
1. Coconut Oil is a deeply nourishing and restorative hair masque. Skinny Coconut Oil is teeming with Medium Chain Triglyceride’s (small fats) that are instantly absorbed into damaged hair and provide long-lasting moisture. We love this guide for creating an effective coconut oil hair masque. Remember that with coconut oil, quality is king. If you use lower quality oils, you risk introducing unknown solvents and oils into your hair, which have unknown effects. We only recommend using the highest quality virgin coconut oil when treating the hair and scalp.
2. Coconut oil is an excellent scalp moisturizer and follicle cleanser. Leaving coconut oil on the scalp for extended periods is shown to penetrate multiple layers of skin while lubricating and cleansing the hair follicles of excess sebum/residue. The goal of a scalp treatment is to leave it balanced, not too oily or too dry. Coconut oil creates that balance by mimicking the body’s natural oils, while also removing the toxic buildup that traditional products leave in our hair. Apply small amounts to the roots of the hair and scalp. Here is a great guide on coconut scalp treatment.
3. Coconut oil is a fantastic conditioner. It is as good (if not better) than the traditional products we use today, except Skinny products are all 100% natural and always chemical-free. Use in place of traditional conditioner during showers. Additionally, small amounts can be placed on the hair (post-shower) to provide all-day hydration for severely dehydrated hair. Pro tip: Our Founder/CEO Luke Geddie applies a small amount of our oil to his dry frizzy hair every day. It soaks right in without looking or feeling greasy!”
What do I love about Skinny coconut oil?… The AH-mazing suds (que the choir), most bars I’ve tried just don’t give me the suds and I need to spread it around my thick hair!
But even more importantly, Skinny is the only coconut oil on the market that is wild harvested, hand pressed, small batched, never heated, 100% raw, 100% virgin, and 100% without those yucky chemicals and solvents. You can actually smell, feel, taste and see the difference. Really!

What they say about their Shampoo bars:
At Skinny & Co. our goal is to create products that are efficient, chemical-free, and as good or better than traditional options. So, when we finally nailed our Skinny Shampoo Bar formula, we KNEW we had a home run for multiple reasons.
1 Simple – Our shampoo bars are comprised of a single ingredient, 100% Saponified Coconut Oil (either on its own or blended with a therapeutic-grade essential oil). It could not be simpler.
2 Natural – Completely chemical-free, with nothing to be worried about. Our patented coconut oil goes through a natural “soaping” process, and that’s it. Only one step.
3 Effective – Our shampoo bars, to customer’s delight, lather up like crazy! Most products rely on harmful sulfates for their “lather” qualities, but our saponified coconut oil does it on its own. It’s really impressive!
4 Long lasting – This bar goes a long way! We are seeing women with long hair get 60+ uses out of a bar, and men with short hair in upwards of 90+….’
Skinny product use guide….“Coconut oil is extremely versatile. It has hundreds (if not thousands) of applications and uses. At Skinny & Co. nothing makes us more excited than discovering the most effective ways to use our products.

I use coconut oil to bake with and in my skin care. In my skin care I use it as a all over moisturizer, shave oil, and face wash. I also use it as a deodorant.
It’s wonderful stuff.
The only way I’ve ever used coconut oil was to mix it with ground cloves to make a paste for dry sockets in the mouth.
Coconut oil is the only moisturizer I use for my sensitive face. We also love to bake with it in place of butter.
