I've been reading the Shampoo Bar thread and I can't wait to start using them. Right now I'm using a botanical shampoo called Eco Sevi Pumpkin Seed Shampoo. Here are the ingredients: Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Infusions of *Nettle, *Yucca, *Marshmallow Root, *Burdock Root, *Rosemary, *Horsetail and *Flaxseed, Decyl Glucoside, *Pumpkin Seed Oil, *Avocado Oil, *Babassu Oil, Guar Hyroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, *Sage Extract, *(f)Nilotica Shea Butter, *Sea Buckthorn Berry CO2,Pure Essential Oils (http://www.ecosevi.com/collections/wash/products/pumpkin-seed-shampoo#) (*Patchouli, *Cedarwood, *Lavender, *Rosemary **Myrrh), Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate.


Since it has many of the same ingredients as shampoo bars, I was wondering if I should treat it like a shampoo bar. What I mean by this is, should I stop using conditioner and start using an ACV rinse after shampooing? What do you think?

I'm not sure if this shampoo is alkaline but if it is, I guess I would need to balance it with vinegar.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but you'd know if it was alkaline because it would leave your hair feeling kinda sticky...at least if you have hard water. I'm a shampoo bar user with hard water and after I wash, my hair feels horrible until I do an acidic rinse.

Either way, I don't see there being a huge risk in using an ACV rinse.

Hmm ... I don't think I noticed stickiness. I do have hard water though which makes me think maybe I should add in an ACV rinse anyway?

Do you use conditioner in your routine?
