Being Plastic-Free – Why Solid Shampoo Bars Are Better!

At Organica, we care about sleep, about health, and about nature. One of the biggest problems our world faces is the rate at which we are producing and not recycling plastic. So we want to do our part to help!

Here's a question for you: How many bottles of shampoo do you go through a year? Or in your lifetime? It's a lot, right?! 

And these shampoo bottles are rarely recycled or reused. Because of this, we’re always striving to create products that will benefit your health and your life, but that also help care for the environment and reduce the amount of plastic waste you produce.

That’s why we created our environmentally friendly Sleepy Head Shampoo Bar!

This bar contains lavender oil, one of nature’s most powerful relaxants, and a number of other hair-nourishing oils like lemon, lime, and jojoba. The solid bar holds the equivalent of THREE plastic bottles of shampoo and comes in a handy, reusable metal tin. 

So, How Do They Scrub Up?

Wondering how shampoo bars scrub up compared to liquid shampoo? They may or may not have made their way into your beauty regime yet, but here’s why you should consider making the switch.

You Can Rely On Them To Be Made With More Natural Ingredients.

Unlike solid shampoo, liquid shampoo bars need detergents in them to lather up, so generally, solid shampoo bars are made with fewer chemicals in them. Solid shampoo bars are normally made using a traditional soap making process, meaning they use vegetable fat and lye, resulting in glycerine-rich soap which is super moisturizing and biodegradable.

They’re also generally better for the environment. As well as not needing additives added to them, solid shampoo needs minimal packaging, and are smaller in size. This means less plastic and fewer air miles. Win-win! 

They’re Great For Traveling.

Shampoo bars are compact and won’t burden your baggage. Since they’re not a liquid, you don’t have to worry about keeping them in your carry-on, and there’s no risk of them leaking all over your vacation clothes! Long-lasting and light, this is one perfect product to accompany you around the world for every hair wash. 

You Get A Lot More For Your Money.

It’s incredibly easy to overuse liquid shampoo, and it seems so many people waste expensive shampoo because they think they need more than they actually do. And it’s much more difficult to overuse your solid shampoo bar!

Using a solid shampoo bar will actually last you around 80-100 washes depending on your hair type, length, and thickness. Around the same as three 250g bottles of liquid shampoo. Impressive, huh?

They Won’t Strip Your Hair.

Shampoo bars are mild and kinder on your scalp than many chemical-packed bottled products. Ordinary shampoo formulas are often toxic for your tresses, stripping your hair and scalp of natural oils and coating it in silicon-based substances and chemical preservatives. Natural shampoo bars replace this synthetic process with essential oils, to restore your hair to its former glory, making it soft, supple, and smelling fantastic.

How To Use:

- Wet your hair 

- Rub the bar between your hands to create a lather, or stroke it over your locks

- Gently massage it into the scalp and hair

- Rinse out – add a conditioner if preferred

- Leave the bar out to air dry, ready for next time

The Verdict

We're all for shampoo bars at Organica, not only are they great for your pocket, but great for the environment, and your hair! It might take a few washes to get used to how much to lather up and use, but after that you'll be left with cleaner and lighter hair, and it will be gentle on your scalp so you can avoid dandruff and dry ends.
