…The shampoo bottle, that is! The latest eco-friendly sensation to sweep through the natural beauty industry might possibly be shampoo and conditioner bars. Replacing the usual plastic shampoo bottles in favour of a solid bar packed with natural, hair-loving ingredients, shampoo bars and conditioner bars come with a host of benefits (think shiny, lustrous locks, for starters).
Saving the planet one nasty plastic bottle at a time, shampoo and conditioner bars are similar in texture and composition to a cake of soap (but SO NOT like that for your hair, trust us!) and offer many other reasons to ditch the bottle and make the switch to the bar, as you’ll discover below.
Save the planet
Ok, so we’ve already mentioned that shampoo bars do away with the need for regular shampoo bottles, which of course is going to reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in landfill. Additionally, most shampoo bars actually last far longer than a bottle of regular-sized shampoo, meaning that for every bar you use, two, three or even more plastic bottles aren’t being thrown to landfill. Additionally, the solid formulation of the shampoo and conditioner bars means its much easier to control the amount of product used, (so you only use what you need). Our Earth will thank you.
It’s only natural
Nasty chemicals and toxins often found in regular shampoos and conditioners can cause a host of health problems, can strip your hair of its natural oils and lead to flakiness and dullness. Natural hair care products, however, like shampoo and conditioner bars, contain a concentrated blend of natural goodness combined with the power of essential oils to offer a gentle, natural hair cleanse. Your hair is left shiny, soft, strong and smelling like a day spa.
Making the switch to shampoo bars can be a very economical choice. Each bar contains more washes than a single bottle of shampoo meaning you’re getting more wash for your buck AND saving the planet one plastic bottle at a time. Win win!
Great hair days everyday
We’ve already touched on the benefits your hair will receive by switching to shampoo bars, and we think you’ll love the results. Don’t be put off by the similarities to a cake of regular soap – shampoo bars are soap free and will leave your hair feeling so fresh, soft and glossy you’ll wonder why you didn’t switch sooner.
We know it’s so important to support local, particularly now more than ever. Natural hair care is no exception, and many shampoo and conditioner bars are crafted by locally owned and operated natural beauty businesses just like ours.
