Why would I use a solid soap bar over liquid?
First and foremost to reduce waste! We all know how bad plastic is for our environment, and a very easy switch to become plastic free or reduce plastic waste is making the switch from those plastic bottles in the bathroom to waste free alternatives.
A solid shampoo bar is similar to a bar of bar soap, apply onto the wet hair and massage to a foam. A natural shampoo bar is becoming more popular for many reasons. One reason is the journey to zero waste. It is much more environmentally friendly to use a shampoo bar. You can get a shampoo bar with little to no packaging and this appeals to many people. Airmid travel soap is great for traveling or even just as an introduction to natural shampoo bars.
A shampoo bar is great for all hair types and can especially help to regulate oily hair.
They don't take up much space in your wash bag or shower and are more economical than buying a liquid shampoo. An organic shampoo bar can bring benefits such as increased volume, faster-growing hair, reduced dandruff, shinier hair and less frizz. If you have curly hair, you can have more defined curls with better control. Natural Shampoo bars are good for all hair types and hair lengths.
Solid shampoo are usually made from a base of castor oil, olive oil or sunflower oil, lather comes from coconut or botanical oils. Distilled water and even beer can be used to give you a treatment soap for your hair and scalp. A shampoo bar with aloe vera is great for sensitive skins.
Isn't there a detox period for using a shampoo bar?
Yes, there is. You can help prepare for this period by using a clarifying shampoo to remove product build-up prior to starting with your new bar. A cider vinegar rinse to restore PH to the scalp and if you have hard water, you might want to think about adding a water filter to your shower head.
You must not wash your hair daily. The point of using solid shampoo is to get your hair into its natural state and to use your own natural oils for the condition. Washing daily can cause oily hair or dry hair and healthy hair does not need to be washed daily.
You will have a product build up from silicones and waxes that are added to modern formulas to give the illusion of shine, all of this builds up on your hair shaft and isn't healthy for you. The apple cider vinegar rinse will help to cleanse that away, a DIY rinse of sorts! There is a transition when you switch from the chemicals in traditional types to a natural shampoo bar but its worth persevering with.
When you first begin, your hair or scalp may become oily or dry or even switch between the two extremes. You may have increased tangles, or frizz and your hair may feel waxy.
It will go away and you will end up with naturally shiny clean healthy hair, you won't look back or want to use a modern liquid shampoo again.
Do you stock natural dry shampoo?
When you don't have time for a full wash and blow dry, our warrior dry shampoo will take care of your hair for you.

It's an irritant to many people and there are much better natural oils and natural ingredients that can be used in hair care to give great results.
