Shampoo bar – A good step towards less plastic waste
You can reduce plastic waste by washing your hair with a shampoo bar. These are durable, environmentally friendly and it saves a lot of plastic bottles. But how does this work?
We all separate waste nowadays. I am also active in this. Yet I am shocked every time I see what a lot of plastic waste we have.
I would like to contribute to a better environment, buy more sustainable products and get rid of the many plastic waste. One step I am taking is washing my hair with a shampoo bar. I recently ordered these from Shampoobars.and have been using these for a while now.
What are the advantages and how does it work exactly?
No more plastic bottles
Using a shampoo bar instead of bottles is sustainable and eco-friendly. One Shampoo Bar equals 3 plastic bottles and lasts 80 washes on average. When you buy a bar it may be a little more expensive at the time, but if you look at the amount of washes you make with a bar it is (converted) cheaper than most regular shampoos.
The scent of lavender
When I went to order my shampoo bar I chose lavender. Just because I love the smell of lavender, but also because this shampoo bar is suitable as an alternative to silver shampoo. I have had gray hair for years and if I don’t use silver shampoo it turns yellowish. When I saw that the lavender bar also has this effect, I knew this one had to be it.
Furthermore, this bar is vegan, animal-tested, good for 80 washes, anti-dandruff and suitable for normal to oily hair.
Wash your hair easily
It is very easy to use the shampoo bar. You only need a little soap to wash your hair and for a fresh feeling. What really surprised me is that I no longer need conditioner after washing my hair. I used to use a spray conditioner, after washing my hair because it made it easier to comb through my hair. After using the bar, however, this is not necessary.
After washing I can easily comb my hair and my hair is not frizzy. Just make sure you put the shampoo bar down in a dry place so it can’t get wet when you’re not using it.
How it works a shampoo bar:
- Make sure your hands are wet.
- Rub the shampoo bar between your hands. You can also rub the shampoo bar directly on your wet hair.
- Massage the foam carefully through your hair.
- Rinse the shampoo out of your hair.
- Keep the shampoo bar in a dry place.
Sustainable and environmentally friendly
It may only be small steps, but all steps help. With this move, I’m helping to reduce plastic waste. I am very happy with the shampoo bar.
It’s good for the environment, sustainable, better for your hair, there is a wide choice and they smell blissful too!
I deliberately choose lavender because I have gray locks in my hair, but do you have red hair, then Red Head Hair Routine is good to maintain your (colored) red hair.
