Have you ever stopped to consider the amount of waste we create in our showers? Shampoo bottles come in plastic bottles and take an average of 450 years to decompose. We can limit our negative impact on the environment by making the switch to shampoo and conditioner bars.
If you weren’t already convinced here are some of the benefits:
They are gentle
Shampoo bars don’t contain hard ingredients like sulphates and parabens that can damage our hair and strip it of its natural moisture. Shampoo bars are packed with essential oils and other natural ingredients that promote hair growth, create volume and improve the overall look and feel of our hair.
They are long lasting
Shampoo bars can last up to 90 washes, equivalent to 2 or even 3 bottles of shampoo. They are more concentrated meaning you can use less per application. One of the main ingredients in bottled shampoo is water, now you can just add this to the bar directly from your shower.
They save space
Reducing the amount of clutter in your shower is always a plus. A bar will take up less space and they come in a variety of designs so placing one in a wooden soap dish will modernise your bathroom.
They create zero waste
These vegan shampoo options are ethically sourced all natural ingredients with minimal or no packaging.
