Benefits of switching to shampoo and conditioner bars

Most commercial liquid shampoos contain SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) and synthetic silicones to smooth the hair. These chemicals can themselves build up in the hair. They can also strip the hair of its natural protective oils and in fact cause an over production of oil by the scalp as it tries to compensate. When we stop using harsh shampoos, our hair and scalp are not being stripped of their natural oils. Our hair may now take some time to re-balance its oil production. This can take place from a few days to a few weeks.

It is my personal belief that shampoo & conditioner bars are the way forward in the haircare industry, once customers become more informed about what they put on their hair & bodies on a regular basis we will see a massive switch to more organic products. The amount of unnecessary plastic bottles used for shampoo and conditioner products is unbelievable. We don’t need to use that much plastic when we can have solid bars that need no plastic at all ! I have created my own line of organic shampoo and conditioner bars that come in biodegradable boxes. Click here to take a look at my range ๐Ÿ™‚

No Worries About TSA Limits

A travellerโ€™s nightmare is having airport security raid your bag, asking if youโ€™re over the liquid limit, or worse, opening your suitcase after a flight and finding out that your shampoo bottles have leaked all over your favourite outfit. Shampoo bars eliminate both scenarios and will make your case smell good, without destroying your clothes.

Concentrated to Last Longer

Most shampoos are 80-percent water and conditioners can be even moreโ€”up to 95-percent water. Why pay for water when you can add it in yourself? Shampoo bars are mega concentrated and generally last longer than bottled versions. On average, a shampoo bar will outlast two to three bottles of liquid shampoo, meaning you save money and extra trips to the store.

Cruelty Free and All Natural

Many brands that produce shampoo bars are striving to protect the oceans, wildlife, and ecosystems that are being affected by the mass production of chemical-laden products in the beauty industry. Many traditional bottled shampoos are filled with preservatives and chemicals that can strip hair of its natural oils and leave your scalp feeling dry. Oftentimes, these chemicals are not found in shampoo bars. Many bars contain essential oils and natural ingredients and are cruelty free. Another plus? Many shampoo bars are free of palm oil, an ingredient linked to deforestation and habitat degradation.
