Questions we get frequently asked

How is this shampoo bar different from soap?

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.

What is the pH of this shampoo bar?

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.

Is this shampoo bar suitable for children?

This shampoo bar is formulated to be gentle, so it can be used not only by people with sensitive skin and scalps, also on 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.

Solid Shampoo Bars

  1. Wet both the shampoo bar and your hair
  2. Apply the bar directly to your wet hair
  3. Massage the shampoo bar into your scalp until it forms a gentle lather, work into the roots
  4. Rinse your hair thoroughly before using your favourite KIND2 solid conditioner bar (if required)


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.

Easy to use. Lathers well. I shampoo everyday and this seems gentle enough. Quite expensive but it depends how long it lasts.

The sensitive one

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.

Not for me

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.

Drying and not nice

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!
