1. Solid bars are package-free
Solid shampoo and conditioner bars are becoming more and more popular, especially because there is zero waste in the packaging and no water is needed to make them liquid. These little bars don’t require any packaging, so they are much better for the environment than bottles.
Shampoo and conditioner bars can be equal to 2 to 3 bottles of liquid products and requires no packaging. How great is that?
2. Solid shampoo and conditioner bars are very concentrated
The bars are more concentrated versions of liquid shampoos and conditioners, which means they contain very little water, so you use less on your hair and they will last longer.
But you need to make sure you take care of them properly and store them on a soap dish. See here for directions.
Why do they last longer? Traditional shampoos and conditioners have water to allow it to pour onto your hair and use it. With shampoo bars, you simply rub the bar onto your wet hair, the lather will start, set the bar aside, and rub the suds into your scalp. For the conditioner, the same thing, rub along hair until it feels slippery, put it away and run fingers through the hair to coat it. This saves money because you aren’t overusing a liquid version (which easily happens 🧴).
3. Solid bars are great for travelling with
Shampoo bars and conditioner bars are great to travel with as you don’t have to worry about any possible spills or liquid airline restrictions. The bars are perfect for your carry on as not only are they small and lightweight, they are TSA approved, which means you don’t have to buy smaller plastic bottles. And then you also won’t have to use those hotel shampoos and conditioners full of unhealthy ingredients.
4. Solid bars hardly take up any space
Shampoo and conditioner bars are great for saving space. Being much smaller than bottles they take up less space in your bathroom than cluttered bottles and make cleaning easier.
5. Solid bars are multi-purpose wonders
6. Solid bars will leave your hair properly cleaned and conditioned
Our hair can become damaged when we use something on it that isn’t within the correct pH range of 4 to 6-ish. When the pH is too high or alkaline, the hair’s cuticles may not lay flat to seal the strand, which causes tangling and damage as they rub against each other. This will make your hair rough and dull, which leads to it becoming dry and damaged.
After earning my Natural Haircare Formulation Diploma and many trials of formatting and testing, I learned how to take care of and treat our hair with natural ingredients that are within the proper pH which makes for happy healthy hair.
I hope after reading this you too will see the benefits of switching over to solid shampoo and conditioner bars!
Have you tried them yet? If so, what are your thoughts? If you haven’t, why NOT?
