Getting the longest life out of your zero waste shampoo bar:
To ensure you get the most out of your natural shampoo bar it’s best to let it dry out between uses. Where possible do not leave your shampoo bar in an area where water is constantly running over the bar, as this will decrease its lifespan.
For best results allow your shampoo bar to stand upright, this will maximise the drying area. Don’t want to take the full shampoo bar with you when travelling? Cut the desired amount off your shampoo bar and add to your plastic free travel kit.
When your shampoo bar starts to get down to the final stages, add the bar to another shampoo bar. The shampoo bar can also be used to wash the rest of the body or hands.
How do I use a Zero Waste Shampoo Bar?
It may seem a little strange to use a solid 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 solid shampoo bar to wash our hair with seems very foreign.
