2018 saw the bar soap trend arise from the foamy, bubbly depths.
After disproving long-standing notions that bar soaps were unhygienic, chic (yes, chic) bar soaps catapulted into our beauty consciousness as a sustainable, anti-plastic option for those chasing good, clean skin.
But, despite the fact that it was technically a 'resurgence,' bar soaps have always been a thing.
So, the question is: are we ready to accept shampoo bars with the same open arms/shower doors?
WHAT ARE SHAMPOO BARS?
Without getting too technical with it: shampoo bars are bars of shampoo. Just like bar soaps, the liquid product is solidified into a solid bar that you then use to lather and wash your hair.
HOW DO YOU USE SHAMPOO BARS?
When you've hopped into the shower and you're ready to get your hair clean and shiny. You can either lather the bar on your hands and work the foam into your hair, or apply the bar straight into your hair and work from there.
Like all other shampoos, massage it into your scalp and lather the ends of your hair, before rinsing it out after a couple of minutes.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SHAMPOO BARS?
While the hair benefits of shampoo bars will vary from person to person and from brand to brand, the major benefit of the bar-approach to haircare is the lack of plastic.
Without any bottles or tubes, shampoo bars are a great anti-plastic, anti-waste, sustainable alternative to regular shampoos.
