Economical, naked and self-preserving; what’s not to love about solid shampoo bars?
Small but perfectly formed, they're ideal for travelling. These long-lasting, light little bundles of shampoo are concentrated, so there won't be a carry on at the airport if there's one in your carry-on. A single bar could take you around the world in 80 washes, but why wait until you’re going on holiday to use them?
Bottles versus bars
These highly-concentrated handfuls, packed with powerful natural ingredients and essential oils, do the job of up to three 250g bottles of liquid shampoo. Each mighty bar gives you about 80-100 washes (depending on hair shape, thickness and length) and is a lot lighter and slimmer than a shampoo bottle.
You create a smaller carbon footprint when washing with these compact latherers too; one lorry full of solid shampoo bars holds roughly the same number of washes as fifteen lorries filled with liquid shampoo!
How to use
Wet your hair.
Stroke the solid shampoo down it just a few times to lather it up, or rub the bar between your hands to create a lather.
Gently massage it into the scalp and hair, as you would with a liquid shampoo.
Rinse out and condition if your hair would like a little extra loving.
Leave the bar out to air dry, ready for its next use.
So there you have it! Why not give one a whirl and share your thoughts on it? If you want to learn more about the creation of the unique and resourceful solid shampoo bar, check out the book ‘Danger! Cosmetics To Go’.
