Shampoo bars are so gentle on the hair without drying or stripping away any oils from your locks, you can even use it every day if you wished. What you will find however is that the need to wash your hair will be less than usual.
There are many benefits to using a shampoo bar, it is not only a great product for washing your hair, you also have the peace of mind that due to it’s packaging (or rather lack of packaging… ) Shampoo bars are a brilliant eco-friendly chose for your bathroom.

Giving you luscious locks without the usual problem of having to wash your hair a number of times throughout the week.
Shampoo bars also have a couple cons to them, but none are so terrible you will have trouble using them! One of them being how little they lather, can be a little confusing for some to begin with. This is due to the fact we are used to a the super lather created by conventional bottle shampoos. With the bars being more natural they usually don’t contain the ingredients added for the soapy lathers.
Another con to using shampoo bars would be the mess they have a tendency to have, with soap rings left behind on your bath tub or selves, this can be helped by finding a soap dish to pop your shampoo bar in once you have finished using it. You will find the dish is a lot easier and quicker to clean and will keep your shampoo bar safe and out of the way of any potential sliding into the bath tub!
The beauty of using a shampoo bar is just how simple it is to use. No bells and whistles, no fuss, just simple washing. You will have a hard time remember a time before shampoo bars, and your hair will be truly grateful for the decision to ditch the bottle!
