The Beginners’ Guide to Haircare Bars
Curious about solid shampoo and conditioner bars? You’ve come to the right place and we’re glad to have you here. Scroll down to find out more about our solid shampoo and conditioner bars.
But first, what are haircare bars?
A haircare bar is a solid, bar-shaped hair product that is used for cleaning, conditioning, or styling hair. A solid bar provides the same functions as a traditional liquid haircare product but comes in a solid form.
Solid haircare products are often more concentrated, which means they last longer and produce less waste as well as supporting a higher percentage of active ingredients than their liquid counterparts.
They are usually made with natural and eco-friendly ingredients and are packaged in recyclable or compostable materials, which makes them a more sustainable alternative to traditional haircare products which often come in plastic bottles.

About Argan Oil
This naturally occurring plant oil is derived from the kernels of the fruit of the argan tree. It is a rich source of Vitamin E essential for healthy hair. The nutritional profile may reduce split ends and other types of hair damage.
About Cocoa Butter
A type of fat that comes from cocoa beans. When combined with a vitamin E-rich Argan oil it provides super moisturizing qualities for hair. It helps repair dry and damaged hair and prevents further damage by adding lubrication to the strands and reducing breakage. Cocoa butter adds strength by penetrating the hair structure and sealing the cuticles, locking in water and nutrients, and fortifying the hair.
About Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is often said to be the best oil to use on your hair to reduce protein loss, which prevents hair from looking and feeling damaged. The lauric acid in coconut oil helps it easily attach to the hair shaft, leaving you with glossy, healthy-looking hair.
About Essential Oils
Lavender has proven antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. Sweet Orange is not only an effective antioxidant, but it can help to reduce inflammation too. Tea Tree has remarkable, scientifically backed, properties antioxidant, antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory – that help to soothe and calm irritated scalps.
