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.
Easy to use. Lathers well. I shampoo everyday and this seems gentle enough. Quite expensive but it depends how long it lasts.
It doesn’t foam very much but you have to trust that the shampoo is on your hair. I wash my hair twice every time and although there is no foam my hair feels clean afterwards and looks nice when it has dried.
It works the same as a normal shampoo but with no itchy scalp afterwards.
It is easy to transport and no nasty plastic packaging!
I am now going to buy the full size one
Jackie, thanks so much for leaving us a review and the photo of your lovely hair. This bar is sulphate free which does mean lower foaming - but a top tip to get more lather is to add more water, as the bars are activated by water. Make sure your hair is soaking wet and you may need to add a bit more during your wash.
It does clean my hair and scalp without a harsh squeaky feel, but hard water and long hair means it takes 3 attempts to thoroughly clean my hair and scalp or risk leaving a greasy patch. Unfortunately Kind2's low sulfate version is fragranced so my search continues elsewhere.
I’m used to using head and shoulders and wanted to move away to something more sustainable with no plastic so gave this a go.
I found the product very drying with an unpleasant neutral chemical-ish scent and dandruff/itchy scalp came back straight away. Did not suit me at all I’m afraid.
We're sorry to hear that this bar didn't suit you. This bar doesn't have any fragrance added and we appreciate that's not to everyone's taste and dandruff can be caused by many factors. We've sent you an email to explore if one of our other bars is more suitable for you.
I got this shampoo bar on a recommendation for my partner who's dealt with dandruff for years and been using medicated shampoo for as long. They love it! No more dandruff without the need for v strong medicated shampoo and it has the added bonus of making their curly hair look great. Thank you!
