Did you know that the natural pH of the scalp is approx 4.5-5.5? Which is why we tackled making shampoo & conditioner before shampoo bars (although we'll still make shampoo bars soon for anyone who wants them!) But having a shampoo that is pH balanced for the scalp avoids raising the scalp pH everytime it's washed and avoids the need for an acid rinse like cider vinegar to balance the pH again. Using a pH balanced shampoo can actually reduce irritation & itchiness!
