I just use the bar, but every 10 days or so I use a clarifying shampoo and my old conditioner... so on those days it’s getting conditioned. I also do a purple shampoo for my highlights a couple times a week and on those days I do purple shampoo followed by old conditioner. I’m realizing my hair washing has become a little high maintenance! Love love love those shampoo bars though. My hair has never been softer.
