There are many reasons why a natural, organic or vegan Solid Shampoo simply makes more sense. It is healthier for you and your hair. It is better for the environment by eliminating nasty chemicals which will end up in our water. It reduces waste, in particular plastic waste, which is a growing problem in our time. Solid Shampoo bars are great for travel as well, since you don’t have to worry about any potential for spillage or liquid restrictions.
The benefits of using a Solid Shampoo do not stop there. Solid Shampoo bars are super concentrated, so you can use less per application and they will last longer. Take a look at a bottle of shampoo in your bathroom or on the shelves in stores and the first ingredient you will see is water. The overall carbon footprint is less with shampoo bars. As mentioned, these solid bars are more concentrated, lightweight and compact than their bottled counterparts, so they require less space during transport relative to the same amount of washes with liquid shampoo. Roughly ten to fifteen transport trucks of liquid shampoo would be needed for one transport truck of solid shampoo bars to get the same number of washes!
A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and the number is projected to jump another 20% by 2021. This equates to about 20,000 bottles being bought every second. Fewer than half of the bottles bought in 2016 were collected for recycling and just 7% of those collected were turned into new bottles. That means, approximately 93% of the 480 billion plastic water bottles sold in 2016 ended up in landfill or in the ocean.

How To Use a Solid Shampoo Bar
When switching to a Solid Shampoo and you want to get the most use out of your bar, make sure to not leave your Shampoo Bar in the shower. Store it dry and it will last you a long time. When switching to a different shampoo it may take a few washings before your hair and scalp will get used to the product, this is perfectly normal. When applying the shampoo to your hair you can simply use it as any soap bar and create the lather in your hands and then apply it to your hair. You can also use the Shampoo Bar directly on your hair. With the shampoo bars, you will find they suds up right away, so you’re able to tell pretty quickly when you’ve reached your desired lather. After that it isn’t any different from your regular liquid shampoo. Wash and rinse and you are good to go.
