Does Pëurr® Soap lather?

Yes, just slightly differently.  Pëurr® soap produces a slick, creamy, lotion like lather with small, dense, velvety bubbles. When used in the hair, it will lather like heavy whipped cream.

How long does a bar of Pëurr® Soap last?

Pëurr® soap will last on average 2.5 to 3 weeks. This depends on your showering habits and how well the soap is allowed to drain and dry between uses. Any bar of soap no matter how hard it starts out, will only get mushy and dissolve quickly if it is allowed to stay wet, so the proper soap dish is really important.  

Can Pëurr® Soap be used in the hair?

Yes. It will leave hair softer than any shampoo or conditioner will. Now, conditioner leaves a "residue" in the hair that accumulates over time. So for the first couple of weeks, hair will have an "odd" texture to it, which is the residue softening and breaking down. Once all that residue is gone, and it's residue that SHOULDN'T be there in the first's a whole new ballgame! Hair will just lay differently and seem to have more volume, and if you have curls, they will pop!

Will Pëurr® Soap dry out your scalp?

Not at all. Since Pëurr® soap doesn't dry your skin out, it won't dry your scalp. Your scalp is just skin on top of your head.

What is this “transition period” when first using Pëurr® Soap in the hair?

This transition period is the softening and breaking down of the residue that builds up in hair from traditional hair care products. This residue weighs down hair and will distort curls. This transition period for most people will take a week or two, but it depends on the shampoo and conditioner that's been used. Some brands leave more residue behind than others, and some brands leave residue that's more difficult to get out than others.  

How do you use Pëurr® soap in the hair?

Simply rub the bar directly on wet hair and scalp. If you lather first in the hands, you won't get enough in the hair. Lather should be like heavy whipped cream!

Why is there no coconut oil in Pëurr® soap?

Coconut oil is actually drying to the skin when it's in soap, and there are things that you need to do in soapmaking to lessen the drying effects of coconut oil.

We have been told that unless a soap gives you a big fluffy lather - it won't cleanse you properly. This is completely false. We are told this to keep us using soaps made from coconut oil. The industry wants us dried out so we'll use as much moisturizer as possible. They can also tell us "don't use soap on your face" because it's drying, and instead, buy a product to only wash your face with. The industry simply has a vested interest in keeping us dried out, and selling us all these different products for different parts of our body.

The Middle East has used only olive oil in their soaps for countless centuries. There is a reason for this. Nothing compares to the moisturizing capabilities of an all olive oil soap. Add goat milk to the soap, and you have an incredibly moisturizing and skin softening soap that can and should be used in the hair.

Is Pëurr® soap safe for color treated hair?

Yes. Pëurr® soap does not contain sulfates. When hair is free from all the residue that conditioner leaves behind, color will take better to hair since there isn't a layer of residue that needs to be penetrated. Perhaps reducing the need to color as often.
