Hair Conditioner Bars – Your Questions Answered

We totally understand that using a Conditioner Bar on your hair instead of a normal cream rinse is a little different, and a lot of our customers have had some questions. We are going to answer them here so you can rest easy and enjoy the all-natural, hair-loving nourishment that our Conditioner Bars provide!

What’s in the conditioner bar?

Our 3-in-1 Hair Conditioner Bars contain no plastic and no synthetics; they are natural. We use a balance of conditioning agents, herbs and oils to nourish without over oiling hair. Here’s the full ingredient list:

Behentrimonium Chloride, Ethyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol Alcohol (from sustainable vegetable oils), Cocoa Butter, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey, Organic Lavandula Hybrida Grosso Herb Oil, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate (probiotic-based ferment), Organic  Neem Oil, Jojoba Oil, Castor Oil, Horsetail, Marshamllow Root

How long does a conditioner bar last?

While they are small, they are super concentrated. That means there is more there than it appears.

  • They are small on purpose (to help them last longer)
  • Each bar provides 40-50 uses…
  • That’s about 4-8 weeks or more depending on how often you use it…
  • and about the equivalent to 2-3 bottles of traditional conditioners

One Conditioner Bar will last 40-50 uses including all the ways to use it, which are explained below.  Yes, other Hair Conditioner Bars on the market are larger, but most of them contain more oil and do not last as long. Larger bars have more surface area, which means more of the bar is exposed to water and gets washed down the drain when used. 

One of the biggest tips we can give you to extend the life of your Conditioner Bar is to keep it dry between uses.

Do conditioner bars lather?

Our Conditioner Bars do not “lather”, they are not soap. They activate with water, creating a silky feeling “cream” and that is what you massage into your hair. Remember… a little goes a long way!

How do you use a solid hair conditioner bar?

  1. Use as a Daily Conditioner: Glide the bar over your wet hair and massage in. Leave it on your hair for 1-3 minutes then rinse well. Allow the bar to dry between uses.
  2. Use as a Leave-In Conditioner: Wet bar and massage a small amount onto your fingertips. Then apply to the ends of your hair as well as any frizzy areas to calm and nourish.
  3. Use as a Deep Conditioning Hair Mask: Melt a small portion of the Conditioner Bar over low heat. Once warmed and melted, whisk in 2-3 teaspoons of water to create a creamy hair mask. Apply to wet hair and wash out after 30 minutes. If you have extra dry hair, you can add a dab of our Whipped Body Butter into the recipe.

EXTRA TIP: one of our customers told us they use the Conditioner Bar as a Shaving Bar and got a smooth silky shave, wow!

Do I need a conditioner bar to use natural shampoo?

Not everyone needs a conditioner all the time. Many of our customers only use the Shampoo Bar and the Hair Tea for a rinse. And some use the Shampoo Bar without an ACV rinse; it depends on your hair type. We have more tips for using our Shampoo Bar here.

Customers with kinky curly hair find our conditioner bar a must-have for daily use, regardless of which shampoo they use. It has helped many replace multiple products with one unassuming looking glorious, and plastic-free, bar.

How are the conditioner bars packaged?

Our solid conditioner bars are packaged in a recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable glassine bag. When used as an after-shampoo conditioner, each bar is the equivalent to about 2 bottles of traditional liquid conditioner (minus the plastic bottle waste, of course).

Just a tiny dab over the ends of my hair with the conditioning bar while still in the shower seems to be enough to make a huge difference in manageability. It should last me six months or more at this rate! Great product.

The conditioner bar is my favorite. It really conditions the hair and repaired some of the damage I’ve been dealing with from coloring my hair. The bar lasts a long time as long as it dries between uses.

This is the first bar that has 100% worked for my hair. I’ve tried four other brands and found my hair to be snarly or greasy looking. This bar works perfectly for my (very) long, fine hair and leaves it brushable, clean and great smelling. Thank you!

I love this conditioner bar. I was skeptical because I have very thick curly hair and I doubted that a bar would work. But it does! Does a great job of de-tangling and the bar itself lasts a long time.

Not only does it make me happy to reduce my plastic use, but this conditioner leaves my hair softer than any other conditioner I’ve used. It also seems to take less time to cover my hair than it does with liquid conditioner-a huge bonus when your hair is down to your waist! The only downside is that it runs out more quickly than a liquid equivalent of the same price.

Hair type: long (three feet) with oily scalp… I would give this product 10 stars if I could. This is the best conditioner I’ve used in my ENTIRE LIFE, no exaggeration. Barely any of the product leaves my hair feeling like silk. I was amazed during my first use, I literally said “wow no way” out loud in the shower after using it 😂😂 I will definitely be buying more when this bar runs out. Best money I’ve spent in a long time.

  1. Can I dissolve the bar in water and use it similar to a traditional conditioner? I have very thick curly hair and the bars just do not cut it. “gliding” it across my hair in a way that gets enough product on my hair is just painful. Any advice?

    1. Hi Shanna –
      You could grate the bar and melt it down with water for each use. If you’re going to grate and melt for more than one use, you will need to store it in the refrigerator and use it within one week. I have about 4 feet of hair and to get it all covered I do tend to moisten the bar and massage it in my hands. Then massage my hair with the conditioner that’s on my hands. Let me know if that helps!
