Apple cider vinegar is the primary liquid used in our formula because of its ability to create a lovely lather, chelates (clarifies) minerals and hard water and most importantly oils trapped on the hair and does so gently.

You will use a shampoo bar a little differently than a clarifying shampoo for curly hair.

Steps to Clarify:

  1. Rub bar in palm of your hands to create lather.
  2. Put the bar soap aside and rub your palms together to create lather.
  3. Use fingertips to cleanse scalp.
  4. Scrunch lather in from ends to roots.
  5. Repeat the lather process by rubbing soap together into your palms as many times as needed to create the lather to wash all of your hair.
  6. Gently finger rake lather through hair and pinch lather into ends to remove any buildup resting on those ends. You will find where the hair is the driest is where oils and buildup will rest the most. To preserve the ends from fraying and splitting and promote healthy growth and preserve your length—don’t forget this step!
  7. Rinse well and repeat if necessary; follow with your conditioner.

I follow all the curly rules…why are my curls still a frizzy hot mess?

When curls are frizzy more tangles and limp, it’s time to clarify!

What happens over time is products, environment, hard and soft water will leave a layer of buildup on hair. You need to clarify and deep clean to remove this. If you don’t, your moisturizing products (conditioner and leave-in) will layer on top of the buildup and therefore unable to penetrate to provide the moisture your hair needs to provide frizz control!

We recommend clarifying once or twice a month to keep those curls popping! Perfect time for deep conditions is right after clarifying so the moisture can penetrate unfettered by buildup.

“Not A Strip Bar” is 100% natural. Clarify your waves and curls gently without stripping them! Your hair will feel hydrated and nit stripped. Our fragrance free formula is free of silicones, parabans and sulfates. You can’t ask for more! Bar none, “Not A Strip Bar” is second to none!

Not A Strip Bar How To:

Remember to clarify your hair at least once a month. This will keep your hair always receptive and responsive to conditioners, treatments and your stylers! Less is more so rub the shampoo bar between the palms of your hands 3-4 times then set aside. Rub palms together and see the lather multiple. Wash roots, mid shaft to ends always. Rinse well and repeat as necessary. This is the healthiest way to clarify your curls with a kick of ACV to help remove all hard water, mineral deposits and oils.

We will reduce the cost of shipping by reducing the size of the bars.
