Economical, sustainable and plastic-free – not three words you’d usually associate with shampoo. More known for being pricey to purchase, and in pesky plastic bottles, shampoo’s usually one of those things that you feel obliged to buy, rather than actively enjoying.
But we think that’s all about to change, with our KOHA solid shampoo bars. Small yet perfectly formed, these little circles of goodness are about to change the way you wash your hair, forever. Keep it in your shower, throw it in your gym bag or your suitcase – wherever you are in the world, home or away, using our solid shampoo bars means there’s no need for compromise when it comes to your haircare regime. Our handy aluminium travel tins mean you can store it or pack it away without any mess, with no messy decanting or threat of leaking all over your suitcase.
Our highly-concentrated shampoo bars are packed with powerful, natural ingredients and essential oils, and even with their compact size, they can do the job of three 200ml bottles of regular liquid shampoo, giving you incredible value for money and eco-friendly credentials at the same time, working out at 10p per wash as opposed to 16p per use of a traditional liquid shampoo. In fact, a single bar of our solid shampoo could last you up to 90 uses, so you can use it time and time again before you need to replace it. Packed with a blend of nourishing oils and gentle surfactants, in a handmade and vegan-friendly formula, the shampoo bars will cleanse your hair without stripping it of its precious natural oils, leaving it feeling silky-soft and beautifully cleansed, with a healthy, glossy shine. The kind formula is gentle enough to use on the whole family, and please don’t be put off by the term ‘surfactants’ – you’ll find no Sodium Lauryl Sulphates here! In our formula, we have used an EcoCert-certified, kosher ingredient called Sodium Lauryl Sulphoacetate, derived from coconut oil, along with two coconut-derived surfactants, which come together to make a safe, skin-friendly cleanser that can create a rich lather without the irritation potential of traditional big-brand formulas. It’s sulphate- and paraben-free too.
If you’ve never used a shampoo bar before, don’t worry – it’s as easy as ABC. Follow our simple step-by-step guide to your glossiest-ever hair:
Hop into the shower, and wet your hair thoroughly
Stroke the shampoo bar over your hair a few times to lather it up, or alternatively, rub the bar between your hands to create a lather
Make sure to massage the lather into your scalp, as well as along the full length of the hair, as you would normally, to ensure that all of your hair is being properly cleaned
Rinse out thoroughly, and condition your hair with our conditioner bar, if you’d like a little extra loving for your locks
Leave the bar out to air dry, ready for the next use, and store it in your KOHA aluminium tin to keep it in the best condition
Our shampoo bar is available to purchase on the online shop now, priced at £9.
