Why Switch?

On average, one bottle of commercial shampoo lasts for 25 to 35 washes, which means we throw away around one plastic bottle per month. Most of them are never recycled. Liquid shampoo is made of up to 80% water and liquid conditioner is made of up to 95% water. By switching to a solid shampoo bar you not only eliminated plastic, you saves $$ and frankly those bottles are so ugly!

Could you ask for more? Oh that’s right, not only are you a waste warrior but now your hair looks and feels great too! Reducing silicon build up and helping to tame frizz, plus maintaining your natural shape and lift.

Does it work differently?

Because this shampoo bar is formulated to maintain rather than to strip your natural oils away like commercial shampoo’s it will lather less. It also does not contain any silicons that coat the hair, so it may give the illusion of feeling dry & in need of conditioning while its wet, trust us this is not the case. Prepare for the softest feeling roots.

For best results:

-wet your hair
-stroke the shampoo bar through your roots or rub the bar between your hands to apply
-massage / comb through your roots like you would a liquid shampoo
-rinse out (when first using the bar repeat steps 2 & 3 to help acclimate your hair)
-apply desired conditioner to the ends of your hair (if you feel you need it)
-pop the bar in a dry place, ready for next wash

Ingredients: sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, sodium coco sulfate needles, glyceryl olcate, stearyl cetyl alcohol, almond (prunis dulcis) oil, shea (butyrospermum parkii) butter, conditioning emulsifier 50 (BTMS 50), vitamin B-5 (d-panthenol), witch hazel (hamamelis virginiana L. ), vitamin e (dl-alpha-tocapherol), citrus limon peel essential oil

Ingredient Breakdown:

Sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (SLSA) – naturally derived from coconuts, the SLSA molecule is too large to penetrate the skin, thus causing less irritation than regular sulfates. It’s name may be similar to the dreaded Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (the cheaper cousin made in a lab) but these two are NOT the same.
Sodium coco sulfate needles – yes this is a sulfate, we do want clean hair. however much like SLSA the molecule is too large to penetrate the skin, thus causing less irritation than regular sulfates. This is also derived from coconuts, our sourcing is 100% palm free.
Cetyl Alcohol – is a 100% natural, vegetable derived fatty alcohol, used widely in the cosmetic and personal care industry.
BTMS 50 – despite the way the name looks, BTMS is actually a plant-based emulsifying wax that is naturally derived from Colza or Rapeseed oil.
