Just received my bars last week and it was my first time using shampoo bars so I didn't really know what to expect. I have to say the shampoo was really gentle on my scalp and the conditioner bar did a really good job of detangling my hair.It came with a foaming net which made the bars super easy to use and is really handy for traveling. I have wavy, colour treated hair which usually tends to be on the dry side, but not anymore! For now my hair feels smooth and moisturised so I think I'll stick with the bars and continue to observe the results. :)
I've got 4C Afro hair and most shampoos are way too harsh. But these bars? So gentle and nourishing on my coils.
The conditioner bar melted right through my kinks for easy detangling. And my curls were bouncy and defined after, not dried out.
I'm telling you, my hair was happy! The shampoo cleaned without stripping and the conditioner had that good slip.
These bars are a win for 4C naturals needing gentle care. My coils love them so these bars are sticking around!
I was impressed with the speed of delivery, I received the shampoo and conditioner. I am very happy with this ecological choice, the ingredients are of the highest quality. I had a lot of dandruff and often the products in the pharmacy made my hair dry, since I have been using this shampoo my hair is clean, thick and shiny. The conditioner makes the hair very easy to comb, nourishes it but leaves it clean and light. I'm very satisfied, my hair changed in 13 days, and I used this product just tree times, that's impressive.
Yao shampoo bar is amazing. I have many issues with my hair (thin, dyed) and very sensitive scalp. This shampoo makes hair look shiny and healthy and it's really kind with your skin (I've also tested as a face cleanser!). My daughter, who as long, thick, oily hair, is really satisfied too and she replaced all of her products with the bar.
It'm my third purchase and customer service is just lovely as their product. People in Yao staff are very kind and shipping is super fast.
I've been using Yao Secret bars for a couple of weeks now and I'm pretty impressed with my results so far! I have medium-length combination hair that tends to get oily at the roots and dry at the ends since I colour it often.
Since switching to the bars I feel like my scalp is more balanced, it feels moisturized, but neither too dry nor too oily. I wish I hadn't put off using bars for so long, they're actually much simpler to use than I thought they would be, plus it's helping me fulfil my resolution to become more sustainable.
I'm delighted to share my experience with the solid bar shampoo! What truly impressed me was how amazing it worked on my hair. Not only did it leave my hair soft and shiny, but it also felt incredibly nourished and healthy. The convenience of using a solid bar was a game-changer for me, and I appreciate the eco-friendly approach it offers. Overall, I'm truly thrilled with the results and can confidently say that this product has become an essential part of my hair care routine.
The delivery was super quick within 3-4 days I already got the package.I'm using the bars for almost a month now and they are working really well for my hair I really love them my hair feels so nice and soft, I was searching for a liquid shampoo alternative a
and I am really happy that I found these. At first you kinda need to get used to the bar because its obviously very different than liquid shampoo but once you have the hang of it its pretty simple. I would really recommend buying them and I will definitely stick to these from now on.
Was gifted a set of the shampoo and conditioner bar from a friend who's a fan. Was quite skeptical but seeing her hair getting smoother and shinier got me curious about them. This is my first time using a shampoo bar and I must say it does take a while getting used to. The results - exactly what I was told! My hair is considered frizzy and after using the bars for a week I can feel my hair getting smoother and become more manageable. I also like the very mild nature scent of the bar - very refreshing and rejuvenating. Go green products! I actually think I might be a convert now LOL.
The shampoo and conditioner are making my hair flawless! They make my hair feel better, silkier and stronger just after one use. Definitely beats any other products have tried. My order also got stuck during the delivery but they sent me a new one. Totally recommend!
I'm really happy I discovered Yao Secret. I do think it is a bit expensive, for a student's budget especially, but so far I've had great results from the shampoo and conditioner bar. The conditioner one is a little bit more difficult to use because I find only a little product seems to come off when you rub it between your hands with warm water, and it quickly crumbles. However my hair becomes really clean, soft and shiny so I love them nonetheless. I also really love the idea of supporting such a local small business, with a beautiful cultural tradition.
Having long, shiny, bouncy, and beautiful hair is a great sight to behold and something to be proud of, but most people don’t know the amount of work and time that goes into maintaining and styling long hair.
If the topic of this article seemed interesting to you and you’re reading these words, then you probably know or have an idea how on some days you wish you didn’t have to go through the lengthy process of taking care of your long hair.
Any length of hair needs consistent care and maintenance, but the longer your hair gets the more effort and time it takes. And some days, or weeks, you just don’t have the time. On days and weeks like this, do you let your hair be and settle for a bad hair day or week?
Definitely not. And if that’s what you’ve been going through, we’re here to help. You don’t have to compromise quality for speed, you can save time and at the same time take proper care of your hair. The purpose of this article is to give you actionable tips that can help you save time and simultaneously give your hair all the care it needs so you can look your best and keep getting compliments on how beautiful and well-kept your long hair is.
Dry Your Hair With a Microfiber Towel
Drying your hair after shampooing can take a lot of time. If you opt for air drying, which sometimes is the best way to go, you have to sit around waiting for your hair to lose the excess moisture to the atmosphere.
And by now you already know tugging at your hair with a terry cloth towel in an attempt to quickly dry it can lead to frizz and breakage.
Using a microfiber towel can help you in two ways. First, it’s better at absorbing moisture so you can dry your hair faster.
Second, you can get away with a bit of rubbing and tugging as microfiber towels are designed in such a way that there is no friction when they come in contact with your hair, so there is a highly reduced risk of it causing breakage and frizz that can lead to hair damage.
Use a Blow Dryer (With a Diffuser or Heat Protectant)
Blow drying is controversial when it comes to drying your hair because of the heat involved. It is true that too much blow drying can lead to frizzing, split ends, and breakage. But on days when you need to get going fast, blow drying can come to the rescue, you just need to be mindful of how you use it.
A good way to protect your hair from heat damage when blow drying your hair is to use a heat protectant spray. This spray will protect your cuticle from heat and prevent moisture loss.
You should also use a diffuser with your blow dryer for the same reason, to protect your hair from the heat. Another tip is to start with cold air until your hair is semi-dry and then switch to hot air on low setting to finish the drying process.
Incorporating all the aforementioned tips when using a blow dryer will help you dry your hair faster while also protecting it from heat damage.
Wear Protective Styles
This one requires a bit of foresight and forward planning. If you know you have busy days or weeks ahead where you won’t have as much time to take care of your long hair, you can wear your hair in protective styles throughout this period so you won’t have to do too much to take care of your long hair.
There are lots of protective styles you can use to protect your hair and reduce the amount of daily care and maintenance it will need. You can talk to your stylist or do some research on your own to know which protective style will work best for you.
Trim Your Hair Regularly
Trimming your hair might sound counterproductive to keeping and styling long hair, but you need regular trims to keep your hair healthy so it’ll be easy to style. Schedule regular trimmings with your stylist at least once every six weeks to prevent split ends. Seeing your stylist this way will also make it easy for them to examine your hair and recommend products and practices that’ll keep your hair in good shape.
Use a Silk Pillowcase
Using a silk pillowcase is a great way to reduce friction that can lead to tangles when you sleep. When your hair is less tangled, you won’t have to do too much to try and detangle it when you’re styling, thus reducing the amount of time you’ll need.
Sleep With Your Hair In A Braid
Wearing your hair in a low braid when you sleep limits how much your hair can move, thus reducing the chances of you waking up with a tangle that’ll be difficult to deal with.
Wearing your hair in a braid will keep your hair in place while you roll around trying to find a comfortable sleep position. Couple this with a silk pillowcase and you greatly reduce the chances of getting tangles that could lead to breakage down the line. When you wake up in the morning, you can easily take out the braid, brush your hair, and then get ready for your day, again, without having to spend too much time brushing and detangling your hair.
