If you have hair like Laneice: Type 4b curls with lots of volume & gorgeous texture that tends to be dry:  

Shampoo:  Because of the gorgeous texture of your hair, your shampoo bar might wear down faster.  The best way to extend the life of your bar is to apply the shampoo without a lot of pressure to your curls.  Lift them up and shampoo underneath as well :)

Conditioner:  This is where the 3 oz bar really shines, because it has a larger surface area.  

  1. Make sure both your hair and your bar are very wet
  2. Section by section, apply conditioner bar to hair
  3. Re-wet before each application to ensure the most product stays on hair
  4. Leave in for 5 minutes, you can even use the conditioner bar to shave your legs while you wait!
  5. Rinse
  6. Re-apply as a leave in 

If you have hair like Bec: mostly straight with a slight wave & naturally highlighted by long, daily stretches of exposure to the sun & ocean

Shampoo:  Long, highlighted by the sun, frequently heat-styled locks! Because your hair is smooth, you need to prime the shampoo bar in your hands first by roughing it up.  Then let the very wet bar glide or "ice skate" over your very wet hair.  The less you press, the better the lather!

Conditioner:  With long, sun-drenched hair like this, your best bet is the 3 oz bar for your shower.  When hair gets damaged or lightened by the sun it becomes more porous, and drinks up conditioner

  1. Make sure both your hair and your bar are very wet
  2. Apply directly to hair and saturate to your liking
  3. For extra dry hair or split ends, leave in for a bit
  4. Rinse out
  5. Throw some back in as a leave in on those ends

After Dipping in the Ocean:  With long, sun-drenched hair like this, your best bet is the 3 oz bar for your shower.  When hair gets damaged or lightened by the sun it becomes more porous, and drinks up conditioner.  Apply liberally and air dry!

If you have hair like Wanda: Type 3 ultra textured, hot-girl-curls that drink up expensive salon products 

Shampoo: Ok curlies, listen up!  Curls make our shampoo bar lather like crazy, but also wear down our bar faster.  The best way to extend the life of your bar is to apply the shampoo without a lot of pressure to your curls.  Lift them up and shampoo underneath as well :)

Conditioner: Again, with this much volume the 3 oz bar is the right move because it has a larger surface area.  

  1. Make sure both your hair and your bar are very wet
  2. Section by section, apply conditioner bar to hair
  3. Re-wet before each application to ensure the most product stays on hair
  4. Leave in for 5 minutes, you can even use the conditioner bar to shave your legs while you wait!
  5. Rinse
  6. Re-apply as a leave in, go crazy or follow up with your favorite curl cream, we don't judge :)

If you have hair like Noelle: short, thin, highlighted hair in a cute cut

Shampoo: Look at you with that cute hair cut!  Because your hair is smooth, you need to prime the shampoo bar in your hands first.  Then let the very wet bar glide or "ice skate" over your very wet hair.  The less you press, the better the lather!
