Shampoo bars are quickly becoming popular as a less wasteful and more cost-effective way to wash our hair. There are numerous shampoos available that cater to all hair types and concerns.
Other essential beauty and hygiene products, such as conditioner, moisturiser, cleanser, and others, are also available in solid form.
Shampoo bars eliminate the need for plastic bottles, and the majority are wrapped in recycled paper or packaged in paper boxes.
How not using bottled shampoo can help
The number of plastic shampoo bottles we use contributes significantly to global waste plastic. Switching from bottled shampoo to solid shampoo bars is an excellent way to reduce plastic waste.
Currently, approximately nine million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean each year, which equates to one garbage truck full of plastic being dumped into the sea every minute.
Should I wash my hair with the bars of shampoo?
You can and I recommend trying, it will not feel the same as washing your hair with shampoo. Do not apply the bar directly to your hair, as you would a liquid shampoo. If you do this with soap, bits of it will become entangled in your hair and become difficult to remove, especially if you have long hair.
