Finding shampoo and conditioner bars that work on textured hair has long been a struggle for women of colour. Zero-waste beauty, much like the rest of the beauty industry, simply assumes that everything will work on all people. Now that might be true in some cases (our bars do work on all hair types!) but it is very rare to find a product that centres the needs of women of colour first.
That's why for our new signature collection we wanted to dig deep to find the problems that are common for those with textured hair. That includes curls, wavy/frizzy hair and afro. We've been working on our bars for over 8 months, carefully trialling formulas that are gentle yet powerful enough to deal with issues such as breakage, itchy scalps and hair growth.
We also started selling the conditioner bars separately for those curly hair girls who want to skip the coconut sulfate. We reduced the amount of ingredients found in regular bars, and instead packed it with organic herbals such as turmeric and essential oils.
We hope you enjoy our new signature collection bars - Fiji with organic turmeric and Goa with organic gooseberry! Let us know what you think. Follow us on Instagram here.
