5 Reasons Why Shampoo Bars Are Better Than The Bottles

With 80 billion plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles ending up in our oceans every year, it is time to make a change in how we care for our hair! That’s why the shampoo bar is our new favorite product. The shampoo bar is one of those products that you find and you immediately start telling anyone who will listen how amazing it is.

Here are 5 reasons why shampoo bars are better than bottles:

Shampoo Bar Travel

1. Easy to travel

These shampoo bars are extremely compact and could fit in any travel bag! They are perfect to bring camping, a music festival, or any adventure you set off on. I think of all the plastic and money I’ve wasted lugging around small bottles of shampoo over the years and kick myself! Shampoo bars need no packaging once they’ve dried after use, helping to keep your travels low waste. Consider the shampoo bar the perfect travel companion for any trip you take.

 

Shampoo Bar Natural Ingredients

2. Natural Ingredients

Shampoo bars are filled with natural ingredients that are good for you and your hair. Most liquid shampoos haveSodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), a synthetic lathering agent that dries and irritates the scalp. These synthetic ingredients can leave your hair feeling waxy and stiff. Educated Earthling’s shampoo bars include ingredients likeessential oils, jojoba oil, and cocoa butter leaving your hair feeling light and clean. The fragrance from our shampoo bars comes from natural ingredients as well, like our Citrus Sun has lemon juice and lemon peel in the bar for a refreshing and invigorating scent! 

 

Shampoo Bar Low Waste  

3. Low Waste 

The primarily plastic packaging industry for personal care products makes up about $25 billion of sales in the U.S. at this time. With 70% of that plastic ending up in landfills,shampoo bars offer a low waste option to haircare because of their natural packaging. After you’ve finished your wash, simply leave out your shampoo bar to dry and it hardens to create a natural packaging. With Educated Earthling’s 100% biodegradable packaging, the shampoo bar makes for the perfect sustainable swap for the plastic shampoo bottles. 

 

Shampoo Bar Clean Hair

4. Thoroughly Cleans Hair 

There are so many environmental benefits to the shampoo bar, but I know what you’re wondering.. Does it work? Let me tell you, I’ve got lots of thin hair that somehow gets greasy within about 10 hours after a wash from doing next to nothing. Therefore, I need a shampoo that packs a punch and really cleans my hair. I’ve been using the shampoo bar and truly notice a difference in my hair. The natural ingredients leave it looking shiny, soft, and frizz free!It feels so much better than the synthetic ingredients that make my hair feel waxy and stiff. 

 

Shampoo Bar Cost Effective

5. Cost Effective

With one highly concentrated shampoo bar packing in 75+ washes, it does the job of 2 250g bottles of shampoo! The shampoo bar is a low cost, long lasting alternative that makes saving money on hair care products easy! Not only does this product help our planet, but it helps your wallet! That’s what I call a win-win.
