Hair Conditioner Bars – Your Questions Answered

Hair Conditioner Bars Faqs

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).

I thought it might run out quickly or not work as good as my conditioner before but I am a week in and it works pretty good keeping my hair soft and is not going as fast a I thought it might. I paid up to $10 for the conditioners I was using before that was in a plastic container so it is not that much more expensive and reduces my plastic waste. It came in wax paper.👍

I have long, thick, naturally curly dry hair. Alo Goods is the first conditioner bar I have ever tried. After the first use I was hooked! My hair felt silky smooth and so soft I was blown away. No conditioner has ever done this great of a job for me. I even tried it as a leave in conditioner and I had soft bouncy curls all day long! I have since tried other natural conditioner bars and none of them have given me as great of results. I am hooked on Alo Goods hair conditioner bar and hope that they never stop making it and never go out of business. My hair would be lost without it! I do wish the price point was cheaper and the size bigger, but I understand the reasons why. Neither of those reasons will ever stop me from purchasing the conditioner bars, because it’s all very much worth it! I will say that the bar lasted longer than I expected and a little goes a long way, and this is coming from someone with long hair . Thanks Alo Goods!

Love it! This bar is a little pricey for me, but I allow myself to indulge because of how good it works.
