Shampoo Bar Review

The Auckland Allergy Free & Healthy Living Show was on last weekend, and I was very pleased to find the EarthBar Stand. I have been reading about the latest invention of shampoo bars but had not investigated them til now. Christie Rishworth the founder of the ethical vegan beauty products company EarthBar, was there manning her stand, and she provided me with a bar of her Shampoo, to try out and review:

Lavender & Ylang Ylang Shampoo Bar

Lavender + Ylang Ylang Syndet Shampoo Bar $15.00
80 grams approx

This solid shampoo bar has wheat protein and Provitamin B5 to promote healthy, shiny hair, and the cocoa butter works keeps moisture in your hair.

You’ll get an incredible lather from these Shampoo Bars too.


This shampoo:

*is the correct pH for hair (unlike shampoo soap);

*is concentrated – so a little goes a long way;

*is gentle enough for processed hair.

These Earth Bars are super convenient for traveling, camping, or carrying in gym bags and are earth-friendly. Plus think of how much less plastic you’ll use each year if you use these at home!

These Shampoo Bars are made in small batches to ensure integrity and quality of product.

Ingredients – Sodium cocoyl isethionate, decyl glucoside, sodium coco-sulfate, cetearyl alcohol, behentrimonium methosulfate, cetyl alcohol, stearic acid, organic fairtrade cocoa butter, organic coconut oil, hydrolysed wheat protein, lactic acid, cococaprylate, geogard 221, mica, essential oils of: lavender + ylang ylang.

My findings: It took some getting used to, rubbing a cake of shampoo on my hair! (Don’t worry, its not soap I kept saying) but in no time at all, all my fears were gone, I had a perfect lather. Then when I washed it out I found it to be less tangled than my other colour treatment shampoo –  (Pantene).

When I dried my hair, dealing with it it felt no different in texture and feel to what I had used before. By the second day, it even felt cleaner for longer, less oily (messy).

Therefore I am sold on this ethical environmentally friendly hair care product!

I love the fact that there is no plastic to pollute the environment. Less junk = less guilt.

Less weight for travelling or going to the gym or pool.

I thoroughly recommend to make the switch!
