If you haven’t tried shampoo bars yet, now is the time! Shampoo bars are made from all-natural ingredients, making them much gentler for your hair and the planet as they can last anywhere from 50 to 70 washes. What’s more, using solid shampoo alternatives regularly can replace hundreds of millions of bottles that end up in landfills annually.
Plastic accounts for 80% of the trash found on our beaches. With nearly 300,000 tons of plastic packaging floating in our oceans today, every little bit counts when it comes to making the beauty industry more eco-conscious.
It’s time to ditch your traditional bottled shampoo for one of these beauties in 2021:
Lush Seanik Solid Shampoo Bar
If you’re in the market for some big, beachy waves, look no further! Lush has been a leader in the solid shampoo movement, and the Seanik is an all-time favorite. Each bar is packed with orange flowers that soothe your hair, lemon oil that boosts shine, and sea salt for some serious bounce. The most crucial ingredient is a combination of mineral-rich Irish moss seaweed and Japanese nori seaweed that leaves hair silky and strong. We love this floral-scented bar because it smells super fresh and makes our hair softer and shinier without weighing it down.
Bar None Hydrating Shampoo Bar
This vegan shampoo bar is constantly selling out, and for a good reason. After just one wash, you’ll be amazed at how much softer and luxurious your hair and scalp feel. This bar is packed with cocoa butter, coconut, and olive oil which guarantee all the above-mentioned effects. Enjoy a light, clean scent in both the bar and matching solid conditioner.
Ethique Frizz Wrangler Shampoo Bar
There’s nothing worse than taking the time to style your hair, only for it to be ruined the second you step outside. The good news is that frizzy hair is no match for Ethique! The Frizz Wrangler shampoo bar is the go-to choice for anyone who wants to keep their curls defined and superbly hydrated. Fairtrade Samoan coconut oil and cocoa butter join forces to nourish dry and/or curly hair and tame frizz all day long.
Meow Meow Tweet Rosemary Avocado Shampoo Bar
This vegan certified organic shampoo bar is full of yummy ingredients like shea fruit butter, aloe vera, castor seed, avocado, and rosemary oil for a lather unlike anything you’ve tried before. It’s safe for color-treated hair and can be used all over your body as well. The secret ingredient? Hops flowers, which promote shiny, bright hair after just a few washes.
Ethique St Clements Shampoo Bar
If your hair leans to the oily side, take a sweet sigh of relief because Ethique has a bar made specifically for you. The St Clements bar is packed with essential oils like sweet orange and lime, which balance oil production while cleaning your scalp and freshening your hair. Plus, it smells heavenly!
Spring & Vine Volumizing Shampoo Bar
This shampoo bar from Spring & Vine is all about pumping up the volume without any harsh sulfates, parabens, silicones, dyes, or synthetic fragrances. Instead, enjoy the refreshing, natural scents of grapefruit and rosemary while showering!
Odacité 552M Soap-Free Shampoo Bar
Named after the number of millions of plastic shampoo bottles that end up in landfills every year, Odacité’s 552M shampoo bar delivers professional-quality results right from the comfort of your home. Formulated to restore volume and leave your hair silky-soft, the 552M is good for both you and the environment!
