We tend to think that oily scalps need stronger cleansing, however, the more we strip our scalp from sebum (natural oil) the more it tends to produce! The solution is to provide gentle enough cleansing and use the ingredients that help balance the scalp's sebum production.
- Pink Clay provides gentle cleaning and donates volume
- Grapefruit and Lemon essential oils help balance sebum production
- Bergamot essential oil complements the other two to create a super fresh and zesty aroma and add extra shine!
This 2 in 1 shampoo & conditioner bar is handmade, vegan, free from sulfates, parabens, and palm oil.
It is NOT soap, but pH balanced shampoo bar therefore no acidic rinse or transition period is required as you would get with soap-based shampoo bars.
Weight: 90 grams
Uses: around 60 washes (or 3 months worth of washing depending on usage and storage).

BTMS - 25 (Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol) is a conditioner agent. It has nothing to do with sulfates or alcohol! Derived from rapeseed and coconut oils.
Cetyl alcohol - Not to be confused with alcohol (ethanol) it provides softening, hydrating properties and acts as a thickener. Our cetyl alcohol is palm oil-free.
Sweet Almond Oil has hydrating and nourishing properties that moisturises the hair, reduces breakage, split ends, and relieve itchy scalps.
Panthenol (Provitamin B5) protects hair from styling and environmental damage by locking in moisture. It also adds volume and shine.

HOW TO USE
Q: Are your shampoo bars suitable for coloured hair?
A: Yes! Our formulas do not contain sulfates (the ones to blame for stripping off colour) therefore suitable for coloured hair.
Q: I’m not sure which bar to choose, because my scalp is sensitive, but my hair is oily.
A: For sensitive scalp, we always advise to go for the PURE bar. Oftentimes people with itchy scalp end up touching it too often which causes hair to get oily quickly.
I always ask a person if they have oily skin as well. If a person has oily skin then their scalp is naturally more oily too, in that case, they would benefit from BALANCE bar for oily hair.
Q: I live in hard water; would your shampoo bar be suitable for hard water areas?
A: Wild Ona bars are pH balanced shampoo, not soap, therefore they are suitable for hard water areas.
Q: My hair is oily, but I find shampoo bars for oily hair to be too drying.
A: BALANCE bar has been formulated to help gently cleanse the scalp, help balance sebum production and at the same time nourish dry ends, it will not be drying!
Q: How long does your shampoo bar last?
A: It is 90g and depending on usage lasts around 60 washes, or 3 months’ worth of washing, which replaces up to 3 BOTTLES of liquid shampoo!
Q: Do your bars contain Palm oil?
A: All our ingredients are certified palm oil-free.
Q: Can I use your shampoo bar for my children?
A: Until up to puberty children’s hair produce very little sebum (around 6 times less than adults) therefore, they need only very gentle cleansing. If used for children, we advise not to rub the bar onto the child’s scalp, but rather create lather (foam) in your hands and use it to wash hair and scalp. Our bars are not intended for children below the age of 3.
