Lots of rosemary
from my garden goes into this soap.
This mediterranean herb has most remarkable characteristics which I want to maximize within this recipe.
Rosemary is plum full of carnosic acid (an antioxidant) plus lots of anti inflammatory components which are grand for hair and skin.
Not everybody get’s the hang on hair soap.
Sometimes it takes a bit of patience and endurance.
Washing your hair with soap is a tiny bit different than using normal shampoo.
It takes the scalp approx. two weeks to renew itself – and that’s about the time it takes to get the hang on washing your hair with natural soap.

Perhaps your would rather use a liquid version of this hair soap ?
Then my so-called “liquid” version of this Mödeli could be of interest to you: click
Fit for travel ?
Because I don’t use palm oil in my soap it tends to be a wee softer than others.
Therefore I have categorized my soaps from 1 (hard) to 5 (very soft).
Traveling in a soap box they tend to soften anyways as they most often have little time to dry properly.
This soap I classify as 1.
Wet your hair thoroughly.
Rub the hair soap directly onto your hair.
Lay soap aside.
Add some water to your hair and then massage the soap into your scalp – the hair get’s soap on it in any case.
Stand under the running water once more and massage your hair and scalp with both hands vigorously.
Now rinse hair thoroughly with lots of water.
You can also wash your hair – off and on – with water only.
If you tend to have dry scalp or dandruff this could help. What also helps is tonic water made from nettles. Nettles contain lots of silica – a natural anti-dandruff-agent.
You simply stick your head under the faucet, tousle your hair slightly with lots of water.
Dry it as usual.
Most probably you’ll be positively surprised by the result.
I have noticed that often a firm bar of soap leeds to ample usage of soap. Mostly too much and frequently not all of it gets rinsed out and remains on the hair.
In order to get a better feel for hair washing with soap you could start with cutting-up 1/3 of a bar into small pieces and stick these into an old shampoo bottle. Fill it up with water and let it sit for a day or two. Then it will be liquified and you can use it like a “normal” liquid shampoo.
