6 Reasons Why Solid Shampoo Is Better For Your Hair (& The Environment)
If you’re used to pouring a liquid hair cleanser into your hands, shampoo bars can take some getting used to. So are shampoo bars better for your hair? There are plenty of shampoo bar benefits and lots of good reasons why you should consider switching to these eco-friendly alternatives.
1. They save water
Shampoo bars aren’t formulated with the same amount of water that gives liquid shampoo its consistency. From the creation stage, shampoo bars are instantly better for the planet.
2. Less water = more potent ingredients
Being formulated with less water means that there’s a higher concentration of other ingredients in the bar. The cleansers and conditioners can work in their most potent form without being diluted. In the long run, this means that your hair is getting a powerful dose of the important stuff.
3. Less plastic usage
Without the liquid, there’s no need for plastic bottles that you may forget to put in recycling! Our solid shampoo from APO is packaged in 100% recyclable paper cases certified PEFC (sustainably managed forests), printed with inks made from vegetable oils. Artisanal manufactured in the North of France.
4. Natural Ingredients
APO’s solid shampoo is sulfate-free and vegan! Suitable for all hair types, it is enriched with wheat protein which has moisturizing properties and organic castor oil with fortifying and sheathing properties. It also contains erythritol, a detangling agent of natural origin. Fragrant with notes of oat milk and honey, it will please the whole family.
Shampoo bars won’t set off any red-flags with the TSA. You also won’t have to worry about it potentially leaking into your luggage!
APO’s solid shampoo bar is the equivalent of 2 shampoo bottles (250ml)! It is long-lasting, and you will need less product each wash, making it a more sustainable and affordable option.
