Is a Shampoo Bar suitable for my hair?
Shampoo Bars are not only great for the environment they’re also great for your hair and scalp too. Most shampoos will leave a coating on your hair which builds up over time. The Australian Natural Shampoo Bars don’t contain chemicals or products often found in shampoos and conditioners such as sodium laurel sulfates (SLS), which strip the natural oil from your hair.
By using a natural product on your scalp and hair, you can be confident that what you’re putting on your scalp, skin, body and what’s going down the drain, is chemical free!
How do I use a Zero Waste Shampoo Bar?
It may seem a little strange to use a shampoo bars at first, but once you’ve used them a few times you’ll realise they’re quite easy to use. The key to a successful wash to is lather! You may not want to rub the bar directly on your hair, but rather build up the lather in your hand and apply the lathered soap to your hair.
Start with wet hair, rub the bar between your hands to build up a lather and apply to your hair. Just like you would with a liquid shampoo or conditioner, gently massage the lather into your hair. Once you’ve completed the cleaning stage it’s time to rinse, rinse, rinse.
What are the benefits of using a Zero Waste Shampoo?
We are so conditioned to applying shampoo and conditioner to our hair by pouring the liquid out of a plastic bottle, that the thought of using a bar of soap to wash our hair with seems very foreign. A shampoo bar may indeed be a bar of soap, but shampoo bars have been specially formulated to use on your hair, leaving it just as soft and shiny as liquid shampoo and conditioner liquid will.
We all know now that plastic is polluting our environment, and although many plastics can be recycled they can’t be recycled an infinite number of times, making plastic an unsustainable product. When using a natural shampoo bar you’ll be reducing waste in your bathroom, as these shampoo bars are zero waste! The Australian Natural Shampoo Bars are packaged in recycled cardboard which can be recycled again, or simply added to your compost!
For men that don’t just have hair on their heads, but on their face too, a shampoo bar is the perfect two-in-one. Shampoo bars are great for beards, keeping them soft and clean!
Shampoo Bars are also great for travelling. Taking your shampoo bar on the plane? No problem! As it’s not a liquid you’ll have no problem getting your natural shampoo bar through airport security!
