1、洗髮皂怎麼挑?我適合什麼款式?

初次使用建議先選較不易有適應期的 Sailing Day or Silk Road,或是參考我們製作的髮皂挑選測驗。如確定此款使用沒有問題,持續使用1-2個月後(先讓頭髮適應肥皂),再依照自己喜好選擇其他款式喔!

 

2、洗完後覺得頭髮黏膩怎麼辦?

黏的原因:過去市售髮品化學殘留阻礙造的清潔力(主要原因)、使用方式錯誤(主要原因)、此款不適合、清潔力不夠、硬水和皂反應變成皂垢

比較會黏的類型:糾結髮、受損髮、長髮、髮量多

如果你擔心遇到過渡期,我強烈建議你,在一個確定不會出門的週末開始你的POO FREE旅程喔!

髮皂跟洗髮精使用上有點不同,部落格與IG有各式各樣的文章可以參考,

這種黏正常嗎?髮蠟感?白白的?油油的?

如果還是不行,請 LINE客服 詢問我們喔!

 

3、一顆洗髮皂可以用多久?

剛開始用髮皂,因為頭髮上有很多化學殘留,真的要很認真的洗掉,才能洗去殘留物,你會發現剛開始也許才幾天就用掉半顆皂了

但是隨著頭髮越來越乾淨,泡沫會越來越順利被搓出來,相對使用上就省了許多不必要的浪費喔!

健康的頭髮,一顆100g的髮皂,可以使用約40-60次。每個人的洗髮習慣都不同,髮皂配方的不同也會影響使用的次數喔!

 

4多久可以改善頭皮問題?

3-4週。

皮膚新生的基底細胞會在28天的生命週期內,不斷改變外觀並逐漸向皮膚表層推移

過程中持續角質化最終變成細小的角質皮屑脫落。所以請給自己至少28天的時間去感受喔!

 

5我會遇到適應期嗎?會持續多久?

第一次用洗髮皂,有的人一次就上手,有的人卻有好幾天甚至幾個月的適應期

適應期可能會有以下狀況:粘膩、毛躁、糾結、白白的皂垢、掉髮增加、頭皮癢、頭皮刺痛、靜電等

主要差在你使用髮皂的方式,以及你過去的髮品習慣,目前使用 The Soap Days 有遇到過渡期,且有向LINE諮詢者,

大部分1-2週會結束過渡期,但也有超過一個月的。所以如果有問題,歡迎諮詢喔!

如何正確的用髮皂洗髮?

 

6第一次洗髮皂?我該準備什麼?

*先盡可能戒掉你的護髮品

*受損髮直接改用 植物油護髮弱酸潤絲

*將過於毛躁、分岔的髮尾修剪掉

新手必須把目標放在:先把頭髮化學殘留跟皂垢洗乾淨

 

7家裡是硬水怎麼辦?

台灣只有台北市是軟水,雖然硬水是產生皂垢的其中一個原因,但卻不是有過渡期的原因喔!

有些人即使住在台北市,錯誤的使用也是會黏黏的洗不乾淨。

反之即使住在台南,正確的使用以及健康又乾淨的頭髮,一樣可以輕鬆洗出健康自然的秀髮。

 

8會沒有泡泡嗎?

除了新手皂泡泡較少,大部分的皂款都有非常豐盈的泡泡!如果你泡泡很少

請看原因

 

9洗髮時會澀澀的嗎?

毛麟片在PH6以上的環境時會張開(水PH7)而增加摩擦力,因此糾結毛燥為自然現象!並不完全是因為肥皂才澀澀的喔!

 

10髮皂適合染髮嗎?

大部分的使用者,都說髮皂不會影響他們的染髮,有很多人發現髮皂比一般的洗髮精更不容易掉色

但每個人的髮質跟染髮品、染髮方式都不同,還是要自行做測試判斷,建議你跟髮型師討論過,在剛染完之後,要多久才可以使用髮皂喔!

這裡分享一個自行測試的方法:在一段比較不容易看見的區域用髮皂並沖掉,看看是否有任何顏色上的改變。

 

11為什麼會很軟爛?皂體變透明?

我的洗髮皂是100%純皂,高天然成份比例,沒有添加石蠟、硬化劑等增加硬度,或是塑型劑(市售香皂、皂基皆有)

而且在棕櫚油產業有所改變以前,我堅持不加有環境爭議的棕櫚油(此油可以增加皂體硬度)

我的髮皂針對洗頭做設計所以添加了遇水會變透明的蓖麻油,真的會比較軟Q

強烈建議大家,都使用了好東西就好好照顧吧!一定要保持乾燥,要通風、晾乾,竟可能在下次使用之前就風乾。

如何保存

 

12髮皂可以洗臉洗身體嗎?

可以,全身都可以洗喔!如果您第一次購買的髮皂真的不適合您,就拿去洗臉洗身體吧!

 

13用洗髮皂頭髮容易乾澀怎麼辦?

覺得使用後覺得乾澀的狀況是因為,洗髮皂不含所有洗髮精有的添加物,

其實只要不用洗髮精都會有相同的情況,如用清水洗頭也會,所以並非單純是手工皂帶來的毛燥乾澀!

在這樣的情況下,建議你,開始用純天然方式保養頭髮

讓頭髮再也不只是看起來”髮質很好,而是真正健康的自然美髮!

看如何護髮

 

14問題頭皮可以用嗎?

皂的主要功能為清潔,又有不殘留的特性,非常適合有過敏、異味性皮膚炎等對象使用。初期建議您先選無添加精油的款式,以調理皮膚為目標。待皮膚狀況穩定後,才選擇有精油的款式!

 

15The Soap Days 的皂香嗎?

我們的精油皂,只有淡淡的純天然植物香氣,只有肥皂本身會香。但因為不殘留,所以洗後的身體或是頭髮,是不會跟著有香味的喔!

 

 

 

 

1. How do I choose the right hair soap formula for my hair type? 

 

If you are new to hair soap, we recommend that you start with our Sailing Day formula, which is less likely to have an adaptation period. Once you have successfully used this formula without issue for 1-2 months, you can choose another formula according to your specific hair needs. 

 

 2. What should I do if my hair feels sticky after using hair soap? 

 

When you first begin using hair soap, you will most likely experience a sticky or clumped feeling in your hair. The reasons for this initial feeling of buildup include: chemical residue from past commercial shampoo use (this is the primary culprit), incorrect use of soap, using a soap not suitable for your individual hair type, or hard water causing a reaction with the soap.

Reasons for clumpingyour past cleansing and styling habits were more complex, you have damaged hair, especially long hair or very thick hair.

If you are concerned about this transition period, we suggest starting your POO FREE journey on a weekend or when you plan to be at home.

 

3.How long will my soap bar last?

 

 When you first begin your hair soap journey, there will likely be a significant amount of chemical residues on your hair. Because of this residue, there will be a period in which your hair might require extra washing. You might find that you use up half of the soap in just a few days. But don’t worry; this effect won’t last! 

As the commercial chemicals begin to be cleansed from the hair, your hair soap will lather more easily, and your hair won’t require much soap to achieve a good clean.

For normal healthy hair, a 100g soap bar can be used about 40-60 times. Everyone's shampoo habits are different, and different hair soap formulas will also affect the frequency of use! 

 

4. How long will it take for hair soap to improve scalp conditions such as dandruff? 

 

On average it will take around 3-4 weeks to see an improvement in any dandruff or irritation caused by your previous hair care routine. The new basal cells of the skin will continuously change their appearance and gradually move to the surface of the skin during their 28-day life cycle. Keratinization continues during this process, and eventually the dryness and dandruff will resolve itself. Give yourself at least 28 days to see the benefits of your new routine! 

 

5. Will I experience a transition period? How long will it last? 

 

Some people use hair soap for the first time and experience no clumping, whereas others might require several days or even months for their hair and scalp to fully adapt. 

The following conditions may occur during the adaptation period: stickiness, frizziness, hair tangles more easily, soap residue in hair, increased hair loss, itchy scalp, scalp tingling, issues with static electricity, etc. 

How you adapt to hair soap depends on your previous hair care routine and how you use your hair soap. Please refer to our helpful tips page for more information on how you can facilitate the adaptation period. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have!

 

6. This is my first time using hair soap. Is there anything I should do as I prepare to transition my hair care routine? 

 

We recommend that you discontinue use of your commercial products as best you can; for example, using your preferred oil to condition the hair rather than a commercial conditioner. We also recommend that you trim any excessively dry or split ends. A good way to facilitate this transition is by incorporating apple cider vinegar rinses into your routine as this will help to dissolve chemical residues that have built up in the hair. 

 

7. What should I do if my home has hard water? 

 

Although hard water is one of the causes of hair soap buildup, this issue can be easily mended by incorporating apple cider vinegar rinses and ensuring that you rinse your hair thoroughly so that no soap remains in the hair. 

If you suspect hard water is disrupting your transition to hair soap, you may also first rinse your hair with filtered water before washing it.

 

8. Does hair soap lather like conventional shampoo? 

 

Aside from the initial adaptation period, your hair soap bar should easily produce a rich and cleansing lather. Please note that lather will vary from formula to formula. If you are not experiencing the level of clean you desire, you most likely need to choose a more cleansing formula for your particular hair and scalp type.  

 

 

9. Is hair soap suitable for color treated hair? 

 

Most users say that hair soap does not affect their color treated hair. Many actually find that they experience less fading with hair soap than with ordinary shampoo. Everyone's hair is different and varies in terms of types of hair dyes and hair dyeing methods used.

Ultimately you will have to test it out and decide for yourself if hair soap is a good match for your lifestyle. We recommend that you discuss any concerns with your hairstylist. Here is a simple self-test method: Use your soap bar to wash a small area of hair that is not easily visible and see if the hair soap has affected the color in any way compared to the rest of the hair. 

 

10. Why is my soap bar becoming soft and transparent ? 

 

The Soap Days hair soap is 100% pure soap. We use only natural ingredients, meaning no paraffin wax, hardeners, or plasticizers that are commonly used in commercial soaps. We have also made the decision not to use palm oil, another common ingredient used to harden soap, due to its environmental impact.

 Our hair soap is designed specifically for shampooing, so we’ve added castor oil, which becomes transparent when exposed to water and is softer than other oils. Be sure to keep your soap bar in a cool and dry environment, making sure that your soap is elevated and away from a spot in your shower that might collect water. Ensuring that your soap bar dries completely between uses will keep your soap from becoming mushy and keep it free of soap scum!

 

11. Can hair soap be used on the face and body? 

Yes, you can wash your whole body with your soap bar! 

If you find that the formula you chose at the beginning of your hair soap journey was not the best choice for your hair type, there’s no need to let it go to waste; just use it on you face and body!

 

12. What should I do if my hair tends to feel dry after using hair soap? 

 

It is not uncommon to experience a feeling of dryness at the ends of your hair after using hair soap. Our hair soap does not contain additives typically found in conventional shampoo and even other bar soaps. It’s helpful to note that this experience is not due to the hair soap itself, but the fact that your hair is no longer being coated with the synthetics it once relied on to appear healthy. Your hair would become dry in any situation in which you cut these ingredients from your routine (for example, if you were to only wash your hair with water, it would still become dry.)

Hair soap will help you to achieve true hair health rather than the “appearance” of healthy hair that relies on harmful and damaging ingredients. 

We recommend that you condition the hair with your preferred treatment as you normally would with your preferred non toxic conditioner. This is a great opportunity to begin incorporating natural oils into your routine. As we embark on this journey to naturally healthy and beautiful hair, we find new ways to accomplish the moisture and shine we desire in our hair. The Soap Days recommends applying a small amount of oil to the ends of the hair after washing and distributing it over the dry areas with your fingers or a comb. 

 

13. Is hair soap suitable for problem scalps? 

 

The main function of soap is to clean. Hair soap, when used correctly, leaves no residue in the hair. For this reason it is a great option for those with allergies, dermatitis and other mild conditions. In the initial stage of your hair soap journey, we recommend that you choose one of our formulas that is free of essential oils. Once your scalp has healed, you may choose any formula you feel would suit your hair type! 

 

14. Are your hair soaps scented? 

 

All of our soaps have a mild fragrance that is a natural result of the various plant extracts used to give them their cleansing and healing properties. There will be a faint smell of plants and herbs while washing the hair, but because our hair soaps are formulated to leave no residue, no scent will remain after rinsing.
