Are you considering swapping your liquid shampoo to solid shampoo bars? Solid shampoo is a growing trend, and with an excellent array of benefits, it's not hard to understand why. Solid shampoo can assist with making your hair and scalp healthier, is easier to travel with and best of all, offers big benefits for our beautiful planet.
Read on for our top reasons why you should make the switch to solid shampoo bars...
This is the big one! Plastic pollution is well-documented as plastic shampoo bottles take a many years to break down (even longer if they end up in the ocean). Solid bars of shampoo take away the need for bottles altogether! Plus the packaging on our fabulous Friendly solid shampoo and conditioner bars is completely plastic-free.
Shampoo bars contain more natural ingredients, which (naturally) are kinder to your scalp and hair. Thanks to the natural, moisturising oils that shampoo bars contain, they help to gently condition your hair and give it a healthy shine. Unlike some liquid shampoos, solid bars made with natural ingredients do not strip away essential oils and so leave your hair healthy and hydrated.
Did you know that switching to shampoo bars could save you money? Solid bars last considerably longer than traditional liquid shampoo, so you'll need to buy less often. Better for your wallet and the planet!
