I've been a fan of solid shampoo for years, but it wasn't until recently that I realized that the benefits of solid shampoo go beyond my own hair and skin.
Solid shampoos are a great way to reduce plastic waste, save money, and reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals.
Solid shampoo is also an effective way to increase your self-care and mindfulness habits—even if you aren't trying!

How does solid shampoo work?
Solid shampoo is different from liquid shampoo because it is made of a solid state instead of a liquid. Its texture makes it easy to transport and use, but its unique properties also make it better for the environment.
Solid shampoo bars are biodegradable and can be used without any wastewater or chemicals being produced during the washing process.
They are also good for your wallet: not only do you save money over time with fewer bottles to buy, but they're less expensive than liquid shampoos as well!
Does it clean the hair as effectively as traditional liquid shampoos?
High-quality bar shampoos and other solid hair products can be just as effective as liquid products, if not better. The added advantage of being ecologically sustainable makes them even more attractive.
What makes our solid shampoos effective?
- They deliver powerful cleansing without being harsh on your hair.
- They have nourishing ingredients that are safe even for long-term use.
- They are formulated with balanced pH levels and humectants for healthy, moisturized hair.
The absence of chemical additives, SLES, sulfates, and parabens makes them a better alternative to most liquid shampoos as well.
There is, however, a learning curve with shampoo bars. Some users say there is a transitional period when hair feels waxy and heavy, but these effects are usually temporary.
Curly and long-haired consumers may notice more frizz and tangles created by the action of rubbing hair with the bar. This, however, can be addressed by making a lather with your hands and massaging the hair gently.
Another reason bar shampoo may not appeal to you is that it does not lather as well as liquid shampoos. The natural ingredients in bar shampoos may be great for hair, but the lack of surfactants makes the washing process less easy. Our solid shampoo bars produce an acceptable level of foam to ensure a good user experience.
How is solid shampoo better for the environment?
All-natural solid shampoo is better for the environment in a number of ways.
First, solid shampoo does not come packaged in plastic bottles, which are often not recycled and can take hundreds of years to break down.
Second, because all-natural shampoos are made from plant oils and other ingredients that can be recycled, they can be more easily composted than commercial shampoos that may contain harmful chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).
Is solid shampoo more expensive than traditional liquid shampoo?
By unit yes. By use no.
Each bar of solid shampoo lasts about the same as 2-3 bottles of regular liquid shampoo.
This is because a shampoo bar is a very concentrated and dehydrated product. In a package of regular liquid shampoo, up to 80% of its composition is water.
It is important to compare the cost per use: Solid Shampoo vs. Liquid Shampoo.
On average one bar of solid shampoo lasts for 70 uses. For a unit price of 10.90€, the cost per use is 0.16€. Or 0.12€ if you choose the subscription option. In comparison, the average price of regular liquid shampoo is 3.99€ (250ml package) and will last approximately 25 uses. Therefore the cost per use is 0.16€.
So the price per use of a shampoo bar is equal to or less than that of liquid shampoo.
Will my hair look different when I use solid shampoo?
Solid shampoo is a different experience, but it cleans your hair just as well. You may need to get used to it. If you are worried about how your hair looks after using solid shampoo, try a small batch first and see if it works for you. If so, then go for the full size!
We run a transparent "Satisfied or Refunded" policy. If somehow you don't like the experience we will refund your money on the purchase of the solid shampoo.
In conclusion, solid shampoo is a great way to take care of yourself and your environment. It’s cheaper than traditional shampoo, it lasts longer, and it doesn’t contain harsh chemicals like sulfates or parabens that can dry out your hair and scalp.
If you are looking for an alternative way to wash your hair then I would definitely recommend using our natural solid shampoo bars!
