You may have heard about the buzz around shampoo bars and are wondering not only what exactly they are, and how they work, but if it’s really a good idea to make the switch from traditional shampoo. And since at Truth & Love Beauty, we believe that making the move to shampoo bars is one of the best things you can do for both your hair and the environment, we’ve put together the answers to those questions, as well as the top five reasons for reaching for a bar instead of a bottle.
What is a shampoo bar?
Basically, a shampoo bar is a solid form of shampoo – think those traditional bars of soap versus body wash. Here at Truth & Love Beauty, we craft our bars using all-natural, plant-based oil, fabulous essential oils, nourishing herbs and more to give you toxin-free beauty and health for your hair – with no compromise.
How do shampoo bars work?
Just like those shampoo bottles, shampoo bars work to cleanse your hair but they do it without the plastic waste and while offering higher levels of hydration. Depending on your hair type, you can choose a bar that whisks away excess oil that can leave hair limp, while strengthening the hair from root to tip., leaves hair fuller, thicker, and more resilient, or anything in between. They are truly a multi-tasking way to transform your hair.
Reasons to switch to shampoo bars
#1 – Kind to the environment
Scientists estimate that more than eight million metric tons of plastic is entering our ocean every year, much of it from discarded bottles of shampoo and conditioner. If we don’t act now, there could be a pound of plastic for every three pounds of fish in the ocean within the next decade. We are literally suffocating our planet by producing way too much plastic.
Shampoo bars on the other hand require minimal packaging and zero plastic, making them an environmentally-conscious choice for us all.
#2 – Healthier for your hair
The majority of the shampoo you’ll find in those plastic bottles is loaded with chemicals and toxins that make them less than natural, and less than kind to your hair and body. Our shampoo bars are different. Infused with deeply nourishing, organic essential oils, rich in vitamins and containing no artificial foaming agents, they’re gentle and safe.
And our shampoo bars don’t strip the natural oils from your hair the way regular shampoo does. This allows the natural oils that protect your hair to rebuild, making your hair healthier and reducing the amount of conditioner and other hair products you have to use on a daily basis.
#3 – Better for your bank account
With shampoo bars, you also get more use at a lower price. That’s because the majority of bottled shampoo is made up of water. Our organic shampoo bars are concentrated so that you can get your hair squeaky clean using only a small amount.
#4 – Easy to take with you on-the-go
Shampoo bars are also perfect for travel. With no need to worry about them leaking in your suitcase or the size of the bottle when you go through airport security, a solid shampoo bar can be tossed into your carry-on bag, making them travel-friendly.
#5 – An array of choices
Finally, no matter what type of hair you have, Truth & Love Beauty has a shampoo bar that will leave it healthier, happier, and silky smooth. From our Ylang Ylang and Honey Shampoo Bar to deeply nourish hair to help prevent breakage and split ends, to our Plumeria Coconut, prefect for dry hair to condition and smooth your tresses, you’re sure to find a shampoo bar that helps you love your hair again.
