Shampoo bars are naturally conditioning shampoos in solid bar form, according to Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve, an all-natural skin and haircare company in Solon, OH, USA. Their chemical makeup differs greatly from the shampoos you might find on the shelf at your local beauty supply store.
Why make the switch?
Shampoo bars can be infused with all-natural herbs, such as rosemary, peppermint, carrot seed oil, or lavender, and they are more gentle than commercial shampoos. Use of natural oils helps to clean and condition your scalp all at once. Shampoo bars that are infused with natural herbs such as peppermint or rosemary can also help to clean and balance an oily scalp.
As an added bonus, a little goes a long way. You only need to take a small chunk of your shampoo bar to wash your hair!
What shampoo bar is best for me?
For dryer hair, look for shampoo bars that have conditioning ingredients, such as shea butter, cocoa butter, or honey.
For hair that is oily, look for shampoo bars that contain rosemary, peppermint, apple cider vinegar, or nettle.
Be sure to look for shampoo bars that are lye-free, plastic-free, and, if important to you, made of certified organic ingredients.
