Does A Shampoo Bar Lather?

This is the first question we had during formulation, as we wanted to ensure you still got a good lather when using the shampoo bar. The answer is yes, we have ensured you get plenty of lather and you have that same feel you get with a bottle of shampoo.

How Is A Shampoo Bar Better For The Environment?

Let’s start with plastic usage, something which has gripped the media due to the disgustingly large amount put into the sea every year and clogging up our planet. While there is a thin layer of plastic holding the soap together, this is a reduction of 98% compared to a bottle! This is a large reason why we are pushing people to #DitchTheBottle.

Beyond this, the saved space means the carbon footprint is heavily reduced. Think of it this way, if a van was holding a full truck of shampoo bars, you would need 15 vans to hold the same quantity of shampoo bottles, therefore this compact design offers an added environmental benefit not often considered. You can read more on Solar Impulse on how to reduce your plastic usage and the damage it is causing the world.

Can I Use A Shampoo Bar On Coloured Treated Hair?

Yes, in fact most people find shampoo bars are significantly better for colour treated hair compared to traditional shampoo bottles. While this has been shown and proven, we understand that everyone is different, therefore we recommend testing on a small portion first.

Will A Shampoo Bar Work On Thin Hair?

Yes absolutely, you will find no issues at all if you have thin hair. Shampoo bars work perfectly with all types of hair.

What Is The Difference Between A Shampoo Bar And Liquid Shampoo?

The main difference is around the reduction in the carbon footprint and in plastic usage. A shampoo bar also contains less preservatives, as these are always required less in a solid format. They also Don’t strip the hair of colours and helps your hair dye to stay on longer. Beyond this, a shampoo bar can be both stored and transported with minimal space, so whether you are going on holiday or to a festival, you don’t have to worry about it pouring out or being removed or weighing a large amount. But if you want more reasons to swap, take a look at the National Geographic's description on why it is time to make the change.

Why Are Shampoo Bars So Popular?

The facts are there for everyone to see, while you also don’t see a reduction in results when utilising a non liquid form. The benefits have been highlighted above, which both touch on environmental reasons, as well as quality reasons and the removal of ingredients you don’t need from the bottle. With 552 million empty plastic bottles of shampoo thrown out every year, it is obvious why an alternative was sought out.

Do I Still Need To Use A Conditioner If Using A Shampoo Bar?

You can use a conditioner if you want to, however one of the benefits from using a shampoo bar is it won’t extract all the natural oils from the hair which a bottle of shampoo does, due to them having petroleum products. This means your scalp won’t require a moisturising conditioner. Your hair is also less likely to be tangled when using a bar, so you may have less need for a conditioner for this purpose.

How Do I Use A Shampoo Bar?

Very simply, the exact same way you would with a shampoo bottle, just rub it in your hair when required. Whether you rub in your hand or directly on your head, it will lather up very quickly. We generally recommend rubbing directly onto the head.

Can I Take A Shampoo Bar On A Plane In Your Hand Luggage?

Yes you can, one of the most frustrating elements to flying is ensuring all your liquids are below the 100ml size, while you are left with three choices: Buy big bottles of shampoo and pay for luggage to be placed on the plane, buy little shampoo bottles that last for a single usage and can go in hand luggage or don’t pack any and hope to buy it out there or that the hotel offers a decent shampoo. However, now we can offer an alternative route, with solid shampoo bars being considered a solid, it means you can pack as many as you like, without having them removed or worrying about them pouring out in your bag.
