8 Easy Ideas for Repurposing Your Yao Secret Bars

January 23, 2023 6 min read


Giving up shampoo and soap bottles for natural alternatives delivered in an environmentally friendly way is a win. It might take a while to adjust, but after some time you start to see the positive manifestations and results of the decision you made. But that’s not where it ends, especially with products like our Yao secret shampoo and conditioner bars. There’s a door of versatility and multipurpose use that you can unlock with the right information and tips. Yao Secret shampoo and conditioner bars are specially designed and formulated for healthy and aesthetically pleasing hair, but they can do more than that. Not only can you save the environment from damage and protect yourself from harmful chemicals and substances, but you can also use shampoo and conditioner bars beyond washing and hydrating your hair.

Imagine you’re going on a quick trip and you have to, or want to, pack as little as possible, or you were in a haste and forgot everything else but your shampoo bar or conditioner bar. What would you do? In this article, we’ll be discussing the versatility and multipurpose nature of Yao Secret shampoo and conditioner bars. We’ll share some practical and effective ways you can repurpose your shampoo bars and also give you information that’ll help you understand how you can easily make use of them in different situations when the need arises.

Yao Secret Bars are Versatile 

To truly take advantage of the versatility of Yao Secret shampoo and conditioner bars and repurpose them in ways we might not even have thought about, you need to understand what makes them versatile. What are the characteristics and features that make it possible for you to repurpose your bars?

Yao Secret Shampoo Bars Produce a Lot of Lather

Shampoo bars don’t have the same water content as bottled shampoo (bottled shampoo is highly diluted with water), which means they are more concentrated and pack a heavier punch. Due to the more concentrated formula of shampoo bars, they produce more lather, one or two swipes with water and you get a lot of lather, which makes it easier to wash and clean. This means in most scenarios where lather will make washing and cleaning easier and more effective, Yao Secret shampoo bar can be used. We’ll give more details about why in the coming section.

Yao Secret Shampoo Bars Clean and Wash Effectively

Yao secret shampoo bars are formulated and designed to effectively clean and get rid of dirt and oils. This makes them effective washing agents, even beyond the realm of hair. Now, because they are designed to be gentle and not strip your hair of its essential oils, they are not as harsh (they might not wash your dishes squeaky clean like a detergent would), but they can also get the job of cleaning done decently.

Yao Secret Shampoo Bars Do Not Dry the Skin

Yao secret shampoo bars are made with natural ingredients, and their pH balance makes it so they are not harsh on the skin. If you have to use our shampoo bar on your skin, it won’t dry out your skin because our formulations include no harsh chemicals or substances like sulfates, parabens, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances.

Shampoo Bars are Easy to Travel with

Bottles take up space, and if not handled or packed properly will spill their contents into your luggage. This makes it hard to travel with shampoo and conditioner bottles, you have to give it a lot of thought before and during your travels. Shampoo and conditioner bars on the other hand are easy to pack, you don’t have to worry about anything spilling. You also don’t need to go with the whole bar, you can simply cut a small piece off your bar and you’ll be good for the duration of your trip.

Repurposing Yao Secret Shampoo Bars


You can use your Yao Secret shampoo bar if you need to take a bath and you don’t have bathing soap or body wash with you. You might be thinking, if I can’t use body soap to wash my hair, why can I use my shampoo to wash my body? The reason why you can’t use your bathing soap to wash your hair is because of its alkalinity, compared to the acidic nature of the scalp. Using bathing soap to wash your scalp can disrupt its balance and also strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dull, dry, and brittle. Shampoo, especially our Yao Secret shampoo bar, on the other hand, is designed to be gentle because if it is too harsh it can strip your hair of its natural oils. This makes shampoo bars qualify for use as body wash, they won’t dry out the skin or trigger any reactions.

Cleansing With Shampoo Bar

Face Cleansing

Just like you can use your Yao Secret shampoo bar to wash your body, you can use it as a facial cleanser when you don’t have your cleanser at hand. It’s gentle and won’t dry out your face.


You can wash your clothes with your shampoo bar if you don’t have detergent at hand. Even though they are designed to be not as harsh as detergents, they can still get your clothes clean, especially your delicates. The gentle nature of our shampoo bars also makes them ideal for washing delicate materials like satin and silk.

Repurposing Yao Secret Conditioner Bars

Hair Mask or Deep Treatment

Do you know you need to do a hair mask treatment from time to time to keep your hair deeply conditioned and adequately hydrated? And you can do it with your Yao Secret conditioner bar. The process is simple, just like with any hair mask. Get your hair as wet as possible, then slide the conditioner bar through your hair, from root to tip, making sure to saturate your hair with it. Massage the conditioner into your hair and leave it in to bless your hair with its hydrating components for about an hour. Thoroughly rinse it out with a lot of water, warm water if you can. It’ll leave your hair looking healthy, well-hydrated, and shiny.


Co-washing means washing your hair exclusively with conditioner as opposed to using shampoo. This is a washing technique used for afro-textured hair or curly hair that is prone to dryness. The idea is that shampoo can be too harsh and strip curly and extremely dry hair of its needed oils. Washing hair with only conditioner makes sure that curly hair retains the needed moisture levels because it won’t strip the natural oils and also introduce its moisture content to the mix. The Yao secret rice water conditioner bar will work excellently for this hair care technique.

Leave-in conditioner

All hair types can benefit from a leave-in conditioner, but it works wonders at hydrating and moisturizing dry, brittle, frizzy or damaged hair. It's also great for curly and wavy hair as they usually need more care because of their structure which makes them prone to dryness. The Yao Secret rice water conditioner bar will work excellently as a leave-in conditioner. All you have to do is rub some of the bar on your palms with water and apply it to your hair after washing and drying it, just like you would if you were using a leave-in conditioner.

In-Shower Body Moisturizer

Do you think your skin needs a boost of hydration? You can get your skin hydrated and more moisturized by using your Yao Secret shampoo bar as an in-shower body moisturizer. While in the shower, wet the area of your skin you want to moisturize (your body will already be wet if you just finished taking a shower) and apply your Yao secret conditioner bar directly to the area. You don’t need too much for this process, just a little will do. After applying, work it in with your hands and rinse thoroughly after. Because of the high moisture content of our conditioner bar, your bathroom floor might get slippery, make sure to be aware of this and take necessary precautions to keep yourself safe and avoid accidents.

Shaving Bar

Shaving Bar

Because of its gentleness and hydrating power, our Yao Secret conditioner bar can be used when you need to shave. Apply the bar to the area you want to shave after wetting it, just as with a shaving cream or gel, and start shaving. Our Yao secret conditioner bar will make your shaving experience smooth, without cuts or razor burns. It’ll leave your skin fresh and hydrated at the end of the shaving process.


The multipurpose nature of bars makes it so they can easily be applied in various use cases. With our Yao Secret shampoo and conditioner bars you can do much with little. The instances we've described in this article are ideas that we're positive will inspire you to further discover creative ways to use your Yao secret shampoo and conditioner bars.
