If you're familiar with the sustainable beauty world, you've probably heard of shampoo bars: its compact format is very similar to a soap bar, which makes it a great choice for anyone traveling or looking for products with less packaging.


If this the first time you're trying it, you may wonderwhat makes it different from liquid shampoo (if this is the case, read our post  Five Reason to Try Shampoo Bars) or how to use it in general. Let's discuss how to use and preserve shampoo bars in order to make them last longer, avoiding waste.

  1. Wet the solid shampoo bar with water and rub it between your hands to create a soft, creamy foam.
  2. Apply the foam to wet hair and massageuntil it is evenly distributed. The sensation may be a little different compared to what you feel with traditional liquid shampoos, but the foam is still rich and soft.
  3. We recommend applying the shampoo on your hands and not directly on your scalp, to find the correct amount of shampoo for your hair, avoiding waste and making the soap bar last longer.
  4. Rinse thoroughlyand repeat if necessary.
  5. Continue with your favorite conditioner and styling products. After drying you will have hair that is soft and luminous.

Preserving the shampoo bar is very simple, both at home and while traveling!

  1. Water is a very important resource! While you apply the solid shampoo, remember to shut off the water.
  2. After using your shampoo bar, rinse it well to eliminate any foam or hair residue. This way it will last longer.
  3. If at home, place the shampoo bar back into a soap bar holder and leave it exposed to air until it is completely dry.
  4. Once dry, we recommend keeping the shampoo bar inside a protective case.
  5. If you like, you can purchase a travel-friendly shampoo bar case, decorated with original illustrations! It also contains a removable and washable grid, in order to ensure maximum shampoo bar hygiene.

You might have noticed that, at this time, not all Essential families have a corresponding solid shampoo. But don't worry, we are working on this: we will not propose a solid shampoo version if we are not sure we are offering the best quality!

If we are missing your favorite shampoo, you can continue to use the liquid one. Otherwise, take a leap and experiment with a shampoo bar from another Essential Haircare family!
