As a brand that is committed to reducing the use of single-use plastic in personal care routines, we understand the importance of choosing the right solid shampoo. While we believe that solid shampoo is a great alternative to traditional liquid shampoo, we also know that not all solid shampoos are created equal.
If you're just starting on your solid shampoo journey, we recommend skipping the saponified oil-based bars. While some people may have success with these types of bars, we found that they can leave a waxy residue on the hair, which can be a turn-off. Instead, we recommend looking for brands like Winden, Ethique, Rowse, or Dip that use surfactants like Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate to create a foaming agent that helps water mix with oil and dirt.
Our Signature Solid Shampoo is made with Moroccan lava clay, which is a mineral-rich red clay from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. This clay has been used by women in North Africa to cleanse hair and skin for centuries, and we chose it for our shampoo because it works as a great natural detoxifier and cleanser. The minerals in the clay, such as silica, magnesium, potassium, and calcium, help to cleanse the hair without stripping it of essential moisture or leaving behind any residue.
To get the most out of your solid shampoo, we recommend getting your hair soaking wet before applying the shampoo. Glide the shampoo along the length of your hair until the desired lather has formed, and then rinse thoroughly.
It may take a few tries to find the solid shampoo that works best for your hair type, which is why we offer $8 travel sizes of our Signature Solid Shampoo. This way, customers can try out the product before investing in the full-sized version.
Finding the right solid shampoo can take a bit of trial and error, but it's worth it to reduce the amount of single-use plastic in your personal care routine. By choosing brands that are committed to sustainability, like ours, you can make a positive impact on the environment while still enjoying great hair.
