No chemicals, no fillers, no nonsense shampoo.

Solid shampoo is a great environmentally friendly alternative. It is a plastic-free shampoo. You don't even need a bottle to use it!

Don't underestimate this tiny giant. Having made liquid shampoo myself, I can confirm that it is 80% to 90% water. In this shampoo bar you get all the shampoo and none of the water.

Did I tell you that it is great for swimmers too? This shampoo will remove chlorine from your hair. Nobody believes I am a swimmer when they see my hair. (The straight hair in the picture. That's my hair.)

This beeswax and Shea butter shampoo will leave your hair silky, shiny, soft and revitalized.

Our conditioning shampoo bar is rich in emollient ingredients such as Shea butter and coconut oil. It features castor oil which makes a thick lather and has anti-fungal properties for clean scalp. Its olive oil infuses moisture directly into the scalp and hair shaft.

Finally, straight from our beehives comes the magic ingredient: beeswax. Beeswax stimulates hair growth, and it helps add volume to your hair while keeping it soft, shiny, and more manageable.

Have you tried solid shampoo before?

It takes some getting used to. It's like any new beauty routine. It takes a little practice.

Here are some tips.

The key is to make sure your hair is absolutely drenched with water. Keep in mind that liquid shampoo is 90% water, while a solid shampoo has 0% water.

What has worked best for me is once the hair is thoroughly wet, I rub the shampoo bar all around the hairline: front, neck and sides. Then I part my hair with my fingers as if I were going to make pig tails, and rub the shampoo bar in the hair part as well.

Then lather it up as you would with your usual liquid shampoo. Refrain from rubbing the bar shampoo on your hair for too long, or you'll be forever rinsing it off.

It didn't happen to me or to any of my customers, but I've heard it from other solid shampoo makers, that sometimes people go through a detox period, when they switch to a solid shampoo, which tends to be milder than the liquid ones. Some people use a white vinegar rinse, but again, I never had to do that.

If you normally use conditioner, follow your shampoo with conditioner. Every hair is different, from its DNA print to the life it had. Have fun experimenting! I wish you much success with it. I am really happy with what it's done to my hair.

I used to have to wash my hair every day, and the solid shampoo bar normalized my scalp, and it is no longer oily.

Hope this helps!
