Does a #goodhairday make you feel like you can rule this world? Imagine having a good hair day every day! That’s a dream that all of us wish to achieve. There’s another dream that we wish to achieve; a sustainable planet. Because we are living on this planet like we have another one to go! And the beauty industry plays a huge role here. Read along because we have a combined astonishing solution to achieves both dreams!
India generates 9.46 million tonnes of plastic waste annually. And climate change isn’t that far from getting us. So, it's high time to do your bit and change your buying choices. Especially when it comes to buying skincare and beauty products, the plastic packaging is a lot more than you think.
But first, let’s give you a glimpse of how shampoo bars work!
To make this concept easier for you here’s an equation;
The practicality of a soap bar + The purpose of a liquid shampoo + Rich and natural ingredients designed to cleanse your hair = A shampoo bar!
Shampoo bars are a solid form of liquid shampoo. Except that shampoo bars do not contain harsh chemicals that tend to take away the natural oils from your hair making them dry and brittle.
On the contrary, shampoo bars are made with rich ingredients and all-natural butter and oils that leave your hair shiny and healthy.
Now that you have an overview of what shampoo bars are, let’s see their benefits and why you should ditch your liquid shampoo immediately!
Top 6 Benefits Of A Shampoo Bar
1. Shampoo bars produce zero waste!
Since shampoo bars are in a solid form, there’s no liquid to be packed into a bottle. Which in turn eliminates the whole plastic packaging. According to a study by Zero Waste Europe, beauty and personal care products produced 142 billion units of packaging in 2018.
All this waste keeps piling up causing harm to the environment. This is why the idea of sustainable beauty should be the main focus in today’s era. Hence, as an individual, you can cut these numbers down by choosing a shampoo bar and other eco-friendly alternatives instead, and together we can make an impact.
Shampoo bars are a relatively new concept and we would love to introduce to you, DeBelle Shampoo Bar. These shampoo bars are eco-friendly, biodegradable, and do not compromise on giving your hair the right nourishment to keep them healthy, long, and strong!
2. Shampoo bars are more natural
Shampoo bars do not contain the harsh chemicals of liquid shampoo. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) are considered to be the most harmful detergents found in liquid shampoos. These ingredients are merely used to create foam and are the root cause of hair fall.
On the other hand, shampoo bars are made of all-natural ingredients like oils and butter that are gentle on your hair. DeBelle Shampoo Bar is made with 100% natural ingredients like Coconut oil, Rosemary Essential oil, Curry Leaf Essential oil, and more that are derived from mother nature to promote healthy hair & hair growth.
3. Shampoo Bars are your new travel buddy
Even though mini versions of shampoos are available in the market that you can use for traveling, they still have plastic packaging and come with the possibility of leaking into your luggage while traveling. Which is a big no-no! When you have a shampoo bar, the risk is avoided and it fits into your luggage perfectly!
4. Shampoo bars are more concentrated
Shampoo bars do not have any liquid and water. This means that there is a higher concentration of all the rich ingredients. These rich ingredients work the best when they are not diluted with water.
When you consistently use a shampoo bar, your hair will get an extremely effective hair treatment with these all-natural ingredients. Your hair is already thanking you while you read this!
5. Shampoo bars save so much!
Here’s a quick fun fact for you, one shampoo bar is equal to using 3 plastic shampoo bottles. On average, one person buys about 9 to 10 bottles of shampoo every year.
So, if you do the math then this means you’d buy 2-3 shampoo bars every year and you will be saving an incredible amount of plastic bottles going into the landfills. If you as an individual can do this, then imagine how huge the difference will be when we all take these baby steps every day and every year!
6. Shampoo bars are an investment
The first ingredient that you’ll see in your regular liquid shampoos is water. This is why you need at least a handful of liquid shampoo to wash your hair. Even though instructions tell us to use only a few dollops, many of us fail to stick to it.
Shampoo bars make it easy to use just the right amount of product. By using it, you will quickly know how much is enough for your hair. All this prevents over-use of the product making it long-lasting. No doubt, shampoo bars are an investment in the long run.
How to use a shampoo bar?
Take the shampoo bar in your hand and gently apply it directly to your scalp using small circular motions creating a lather. Apply it evenly on your scalp and rinse it off like you normally would. It's that simple!
