A gentle and sulphate-free shampoo bar to help calm, hydrate and clean scalps, particularly sensitive ones. Suitable for all hair types, but particularly well suited for scalps that get sore and dry. With added silk for the most gorgeous, silky finish.
Comes wrapped in a single piece of kraft paper which can be composted or recycled, leaving you with zero waste. Another part of our ‘Leave only Footprints’ range.
These natural shampoo ingredients have been blended together to create a gentle, cleansing, soothing product, scented with just a touch of organic lavender and patchouli – the same essential oils we use in both Scratchy Balm and Scratchy Soap.
Don’t compromise on your hair – many shampoo bars leave hair feeling a little dull, but not this one. So ditch your plastic hair care products and give this a go.
More about the ingredients
Babassu Oil: light and does not cause build-up, easily rinsed away, but deeply conditioning. Also soothes the scalp, prevents dandruff and promotes healthy new hair growth. Improves hair’s elasticity and strength, prevents breakage and split ends.
Lavender: skin softening and soothing, healing, regenerative, eases eczema, is anti-inflammatory and reduces dandruff.
Patchouli: particularly effective for sore, dry, flaky scalps as it is anti-fungal and many dry scalps are caused by fungal skin. It repairs, cleans and tones the skin and helps skin to regenerate. It also helps to balance sebum production so is useful for balancing all hair types, including greasy hair.
Kaolin Clay: with a low pH, helps to remove build up and toxins from the scalp. Nourishes the scalp and unclogs hair follicles. Prevents tangling.
D-panthenol: very moisturising, prevents water loss, adds shine, softness and body to hair. Also keeps hair thick and strong.
Directions: wet hair, wet hands and rub bar several times to get a good lather, gently massage into scalp, rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary. Follow with Strengthen & Smooth Hair Oil.
Leave your bar somewhere to dry – we strongly recommend our wooden soap holders.

Happy customers love our shampoo bar:
“I’ve struggled with shampoo bars and they can leave your hair feeling weird and waxy but this one is absolutely perfect!”
“In a bid to further reduce my waste and having been so pleased with eye serum from LJ Natural. I decided to try this shampoo bar. My hair is long (past my shoulder blades) and very grey.(as a result quite dry) I also have psoriasis.This bar is wonderful! My hair is silky and shiny, the grey no longer looks like dried straw. My scalp is not flaky or sore. I wear my hair down most days now just because it looks fab. It took me a couple of attempts to get the hang of the bar. But Lisa was so helpful when I contacted her and she suggested more lather. It worked. It’s super. Really easy to use. No need for conditioner (I used to have to condition with every wash) Hair looks great and only needs washing once a week instead of every 3 days. Zero waste and great hair what’s not to love. Highly recommend.”
For Cradle Cap:
“I wish I’d done a before pic so I could show you how much of a difference one use of the shampoo bar has made on my baby’s head!! It was covered in cradle cap, big flakey mess, now look!! It’s totally back to normal and he smells amazing.”

As this shampoo is so gentle, you shouldn’t need to follow with conditioner as it will not strip your hair of all its own natural oils. However, you can use a small amount of our Strengthen & Smooth Hair Oil on your damp hair, especially at the ends, to give you gorgeous, soft and naturally scented shiny hair.
