Shampoo bars vs liquid shampoo—what should you be going for when it’s time to wash your hair?

Leer en Español

A shampoo bar is a solid version of liquid shampoo and they work in much the same way; instead of squeezing shampoo, it’s simply a case of wetting the bar to activate the foam, and then massaging it into damp hair. Shampoo bars work to cleanse hair and remove product build-up, and just like regular shampoo, they are available to suit all hair types. The key is to use well-formulated shampoo bars like ours! 

But what are the benefits of using a Shampoo Bar?

Cost – Shampoo bars tend to be much more cost-effective in comparison to liquid shampoo. One standard shampoo bar will last about 80 washes, which is around one and a half bottles’ worth of a standard bottle. Sounds pretty good!


More and more of us are becoming much more environmentally conscious, and are more aware of the damaging effects that plastic pollution can have on the oceans. Part of that includes trying to reduce plastic usage, which means replacing plastic shampoo bottles with a solid, biodegradable bar that comes in recyclable packaging is a win-win situation.

Use of natural ingredients

Along with having eco-friendly packaging and biodegradable formulas, our shampoo bars are all-natural, which means they don’t contain any chemicals that go into waterways and cause potential harm to wildlife. Our shampoo bars are made from high quality ingredients, don’t contain any artificial fragrance (which is especially good for those with sensitive skin) and are also free from things like sulfates which can cause dryness and irritation.

So, are shampoo bars better than liquid shampoo?

Well, that depends on what your main considerations are. If you’re aware of your plastic consumption and you prefer to use all-natural ingredients then yes, they are definitely the way forward. However, you might have to go through a transitional period.
