What makes KIND2 shampoo bars different?
KIND2 shampoo and conditioner bars stand out because they are truly sustainable as well as effective.
We’ve taken extra care to create products that are:
- Made from plant-based ingredients and fully vegan
- Packed full of nourishing oils that won’t strip or dry out your hair
- Free from synthetic colours and fragrances (parfum)
- Made without palm oil
- 100% plastic free - we're actually certified microplastic free
- Concentrated, which makes them longer lasting and more cost effective
- pH balanced, which means they work in hard water with no transition period
Will I need to give my hair a vinegar rinse after washing it with KIND2 shampoo?
No! This is one of our most commonly asked questions. We are pleased to say that you definitely won’t need to rinse your hair with vinegar after washing it with KIND2 shampoo.
This is because our solid shampoo bars are pH balanced and soap free. They work with the natural acidity of your scalp to keep your hair soft and silky. And besides, who wants to smell like a chip?
Will it take a while for my hair to adjust to using KIND2 products?
No, it shouldn’t. You will not have to endure a ‘transition period’ when you switch to using KIND2 shampoo. Our formula is gentle and pH balanced. That means it will work with the natural acidity of your hair and scalp to give you great results from the first wash.
Can KIND2 shampoo bars be used on coloured hair?
Yes, KIND2 shampoo bars and conditioner bars are great for dyed hair.
If you colour your hair, you should avoid harsh shampoos that can dry it out and cause it to go brittle, particularly those containing SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/ Sulphate) as that often causes colour fade.
Our products are gentle and colour safe because they are made with mild, cleansing ingredients that won’t strip your hair of its natural oils or cause your colour to fade.
In fact, our solid shampoo bar ‘The Hydrating One’ is specially formulated to provide extra moisture for coloured hair.
If I have dandruff or a dry scalp can I still use KIND2 shampoo bars?
Our solid shampoo bar, The Sensitive One, was created to help those who suffer from dandruff, dryness or an irritated scalp.
KIND2 made this special formula extra gentle by using:
- Camellia Seed Oil. This natural oil will moisturise your scalp and strengthen your hair
- Fuller’s Earth. This ingredient is renowned for its soothing properties
- No added fragrances! There’s nothing in these bars that will irritate or aggravate your sensitive scalp
- No sulphates. These create lots of foam but also can be drying or irritants
I’m allergic to fragrances and essential oils. Can I still use KIND2 shampoo and conditioner bars?
We understand that a lot of people are sensitive or allergic to fragrances and essential oils. So, we formulated a solid shampoo and a conditioner bar especially for them without any added fragrances.
The Sensitive One shampoo bar contains zero added fragrances and essential oils. That makes it especially gentle and perfect for easily irritated, dry, itchy or flaky scalps.
Are KIND2 shampoo bars and conditioner bars curly girl method approved?
Yes! All KIND2 shampoo bars are free from harsh sulphates, silicones and parabens, so they adhere to the curly girl approved ingredients.
They are also packed with nourishing oils like Coconut, Shea, Argan, Hemp Seed, Chia Seed and Macadamia that are ideal for curly hair. Take a look through our full list of ingredients to see which other powerful plants go into our bars.
Will I need to use a conditioner after washing my hair with KIND2 solid shampoo?
It depends on your hair type. If your hair is dry, long or prone to tangles, you will probably need to condition it after using KIND2 shampoo, just as you would after washing with any other product.
The KIND2 solid conditioner bars, The Restoring One and The Fragrance Free One, are both suitable for most hair types. They'll give your hair the hydration and nourishment it needs to make it easy to comb through after a wash.
To use our conditioner bars, you simply need to apply the bar directly to your wet hair and massage it through before rinsing it out. Check out our tips on how to use our bars.
How long do KIND2 shampoo and conditioner bars last?
If used and stored correctly, your KIND2 shampoo bar will last for around 60 washes and your solid conditioner will last for at least 80! oO course, this does vary a bit if you have very long or thick hair, you'll likely get through the bars a bit faster than average.
Try to resist the temptation to use a lot, a few swipes should be enough as our bars are concentrated and made without filler ingredients.
Some of our customers have reported their bars lasted even longer. To make sure you get the most out of yours, take a look at our tips on how to store your solid shampoo and conditioner bars.
