Shampoo Bars make your hair feel softer and shinier


Compared to many liquid shampoos, the coconut derived cleansing ingredients we use are much gentler on your scalp and they won’t strip your hair of its natural oils or fade your colour. If you have dry or grey hair, it will need a gentler wash and can sometimes be more porous – so the last thing you want to do is over-wash or use harsh products.

One of the things that can happen if you over-wash is your scalp compensates by producing more oil, meaning you get into a vicious cycle of washing too frequently.

Our customers comment they can go longer between washes plus their hair feels softer and looks shinier when they switch to solid haircare.

Need very little of this bar to make my hair squeaky clean but lovely and soft. Kind to my hair, kind to the environment, no waste, no plastic - perfect!" ~ Rhian

" Brilliant. The best solid shampoo I’ve ever tried - and the one that I’ve stuck with! It’s brilliant with my thick, unruly hair - very hydrating, but my hair doesn’t get greasy quickly." ~ Rebecca

I’ve been using this conditioner for a few years now, I can honestly say it’s amazing. I tried a couple of different brands, to find the right one for me. It lasts for ages…" ~Stella

pH balanced to your Scalp and Hair


All our shampoo bars are formulated to a pH level of between 5.0 and 6.5. This means they are close to the natural pH of your hair, which minimises irritation and helps the cuticle of your hair remain closed retaining the health and strength of your hair shaft.

And in good news, healthy hair is less prone to damage from sun or heat styling, holds colour better and it won’t suffer as badly from frizz when it’s humid.

If you live in a hard water area, you’ve probably already felt the effects of the alkalinity of the water in drying out your skin. It’s the same with your hair. Avoid soap-based shampoo bars, they are simply too alkaline and will dry out your hair. In good news, with pH balanced shampoo bars, you don’t need to use a vinegar rinse either … learn more about the science behind this here.
