When it comes to bathing and washing products, we are often subject to a lot of different ingredients.
These can be responsible for sensitivities, allergies and damage to the planet and for a long time there have been very few alternatives to this.
However, times are changing, and an increasing number of brands are moving towards a more natural, organic and sustainable approach.
One such change is in the world of shampoo, where shampoo bars are growing in popularity at a massive rate.
For many years, consumers avoided them as their cleaning abilities were limited and they lacked the luxurious lather that we all enjoy.
But that has all changed and now shampoo bars have been developed to offer a satisfying cleaning experience using more natural, naturally derived and organic ingredients. What’s not to love?
Shampoo bars are quite simple to use and thinking of them in the same way as a bar of soap will help.
Holding them under running water and lathering them between your hands gives you something that you can then apply to your hair.
Once the bar is moist, you can also rub it straight onto the hair, but this will depend on the instructions of the individual product.
Once the product is on the hair, you can work it through the strands in the normal way before rinsing it out. You will find that since they do not foam in quite the same way at bottled shampoo, you will need less water to wash it away.
The important thing to remember is to store your organic shampoo bar properly.
Just like soap, it will gradually wash away if left in the bottom of your shower, so keeping it in a dish, rack or tin will help to keep it lasting as long as possible without waste.
Shampoo bars are not a new invention, but they have come on in leaps and bounds over recent years as the need for ethical, organic and vegan products has grown.
They are now a product that means you are giving your hair an upgrade in every sense instead of a compromise.
