Why does my skin dry out if I use bar soap but it doesn't if I use something like old spice or axe shower gel?

Why does my skin dry out if I use bar soap but it doesn't if I use something like old spice or axe shower gel?

High pH: Cleansers with a high ph (like many soaps) can strip skin of lipids and proteins, leading to dryness, irritation, redness, and, in some cases, even broken skin leading to infection. For this reason, I tend to avoid any cleansers with a high concentration of sodium bicarbonate (with a high ph), as well as most bar soaps. Gels typically contain ingredients that lock in moisture.

I washed my hair with a bar of white dial soap. My hair is shedding more. Will this stop if I stop using a bar of soap?

Shampoo: Dial soap is too harsh and will coat your hair with soap scum. Get a moisturizing shampoo without SLS. Condition your hair with a leave in conditioner. Visit your beautician, and if it does not stop see a dermatologist
