ECO FRIENDLY NEW PRODUCTS – Shampoo & Conditioner Bar

We have all been seeing a recent comeback of solid shampoo and conditioner bars. An environmentally friendly option for those wanting to reduce plastic use! So we have had a play and are excited to offer our new all natural Shampoo and Conditioner Bars which have our Eucalyptus and Emu oil in them. These all natural bars are great for the environment and last a lot longer than your normal shampoo & conditioner bottles.

Did you know 552 Million plastic shampoo & conditioner bottles are thrown out annually? You will also save of money and of course be helping the environment at the same time.

ADVANTAGES

With the environment always on our mind they are much more eco friendly.

Great for travellers as its compact, convenient and light and no liquid spills.

Helping to reduce our plastics problem.

They are long lasting.

Reducing carbon footprint as you can fit much more if transporting.

The process used to make the cold-pressed versions is very eco-friendly – using very little water and no animal fats.

SHAMPOO BAR

Use the bar just as you would a normal soap. Lather it up with water, and use it directly on the scalp, making sure to rub it in. Massage the scalp with your fingertips to stimulate blood flow and really cleanse the hair and scalp, then rinse well with water. Some people say they dont need a conditioner bar at all. I am imaging this would be more for shorter hair. Click here to buy.

Ingredients for Shampoo Bar – Coconut oil, Olive oil, Sunflower oil, Emu oil, Rice Bran oil, Castor oil, Cocoa Butter, Water, Lye, Eucalyptus, May Chang, Green Oxide (colouring).

CONDITIONING BAR

Great for daily use on all hair types including fine, chemically treated/coloured/permed hair.

After washing your hair, take 2 minutes to stroke the conditioner bar over the surface of the hair and pull through the lengths with your hands.  Or create a little lather in your hands and pull through your hair.   Leave for 2 – 5 mins , then rinse. You will feel your hair has been conditioned whilst rinsing. Leave to dry naturally if possible and then style.  You can use styling products if you want.

Our bars have no chemical foaming agents so will not foam. It will leave your hair soft, silky and manageable and very natural.  If you need some further definition and you still want to keep natural, use a tiny amount of olive, coconut or emu oil as a leave-in conditioner.

Rinse well immediately for light conditioning or leave for a few minutes for deep conditioning. Click here to buy.

Ingredients for Conditioner Bar – Conditioning way (incroquat behenyl TMS), Cetyl Alcohol, Olive oil, Eucalyptus oil, Lemon Myrtle oil.

Hints: LESS IS BEST! DO NOT USE TOO MUCH! These products are concentrated compared to bottled product. 

I personally have curly fine dry hair and have found using the conditioner bar too much for my hair, it made it heavy and flat. I normally have to use conditioner when using liquid shampoo. The shampoo bar on its own works just fine for me. You will just need to experiment as we are all used to using liquid shampoo. 🙂
