HOW TO STORE
Keep your bars cool and dry
When stored correctly, your shampoo and conditioner bars will remain solid, dry and keep their shape. Better still, they will last 2-3 times longer than a standard bottle of liquid shampoo or conditioner.
They might look like soap, but they’re not. Our solid haircare bars are made with gentle coconut cleansers and plant based oils, pH balanced to your scalp and hair. Soap is made by saponification which creates a bar that has a high or alkaline pH that’s not good for hair.
All of 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 there is no “transition” period or vinegar rinse required.
You can read more about why pH matters for hair and scalp health here.
Yes, all our shampoo bars are formulated to be colour safe and they won’t strip or fade your dyed hair. Coloured or highlighted hair can be dry or porous, so it needs gentler cleansing ingredients to prevent fading and oils to protect and smooth.
We’re happy to say that we don’t use any palm oil or palm oil derivatives in our shampoo or conditioner bars. If you want to avoid palm oil - look out for not just the word palm in the ingredient list but also Polyglyceryl-4 Laurate, as it’s commonly found in cheaper bars.
Learn more about palm oil in shampoo here.
All KIND2 shampoo bars are pH balanced and have been created specifically to perform well in hard (alkaline water) with no transition period. If you prefer higher foaming shampoo bars or you live in an area with very hard water, then we'd recommend The Rebalancing One.
Avoid using soap based bars in hard water, as you will an unpleasant experience a waxy residue. Learn more about why here.
pH balanced shampoo bars are like concentrated versions of the liquid shampoo that you are probably used to. They include plant based cleansers which work to remove oil and dirt when combined with water. Wet the bar and your hair, apply the bar directly, massage into a lather and rinse. Depending on your hair, you may need to use a conditioner bar to detangle and nourish.
The Rebalancing One works best for oily or greasy hair with a combination of ingredients which help break the cycle of over-production oil that can be created by harsh detergents in some liquid shampoos. It’s formulated to clean without stripping your natural oils.
Curly hair tends to be dry and caring for it requires gentle cleansing, preferably without harsh sulphates or silicones. The Hydrating One shampoo bar is not only formulated with curls in mind, it is pH balanced (between 5.5 - 6) plus contains Cocoa Butter and hair loving oils of Coconut, Hemp Seed and Macadamia.
All KIND2 shampoo bars are formulated to be gentle and suitable for children aged 3 and over.
Children have delicate skin that can be irritated by fragrances (sometimes called parfum) and synthetic dyes, we don’t use either.
If you or your child have sensitive skin or scalp, we recommend our fragrance free shampoo bar The Sensitive One.
Having baby fine, thin long hair, I’ve always struggled with having to wash my hair every day. As well as dry scalp and oily hair. I’ve tried a bunch, but Shampoo bars have never worked for me. I discovered kind2 because of the mention of no soap, and it has been life changing! I’m able to go a day in between washing now with no notice of a difference in my hair. I use the conditioner as well and my hair is silky smooth with no tangles.
A lot of reviews say these bars have no lather but I’m not sure why. There’s so much larger, I had to go back and re-read the description to make sure I hadn’t ordered the wrong bar.
I can’t say enough good things about this brand and bars, and don’t know of any equivalent in the US. Worth every penny of international shipping! :)
I have used other solid shampoo bars but this one is a bit different. The washing experience was a bit less foamy, but my hair felt great afterwards, and a single wash has lasted more than a week! This is definitely a superior product
Does what it is supposed to, I e cleans my hair! I have very short hair so one bar lasts a very long time. I occasionally use a conditioner for extra softness, but don’t need to most of the time.
The shampoo bar lathered well and left my hair feeling soft, but it didn't tackle the dryness I bought it for. This was in no way the fault of the bar, turned out it needed more serious treatment. Overall a good product, but not for me.
We only use your hydrating shampoo plus your conditioner since we first ordered many months ago. We are on our third shampoo bar. It lasts well, good lather, clean hair, no scent, feels good and good for the planet ...
