How to Choose Your Shampoo Bar

So you’ve decided a shampoo bar is in your future—excellent choice!

These compact bars last up to 80 to 100 washes and eliminate the need for plastic bottles altogether, so they’re not only convenient for you, but great for the environment too. There’s just one problem: with so many shampoo bars to choose from, how do you pick one?

Each bar is crafted with a unique blend of ingredients that’ll leave your hair looking and feeling its absolute best, whatever that means to you. So read on for a few tips on how to choose the shampoo bar that’ll make your hair dreams come true!

Get smooth and glossy

Want hair that’s soft and sleek, with no frizz or flyaways in sight? Look to ingredients like nut butters, oils, glycerin and seaweed–they’re nourishing, softening and will help your hair hold on to the moisture that makes it silky smooth.

On a quest for stronger, shinier, softer hair? Jason And The Argan Oil may be the one for you. As the name suggests, this one’s loaded with Moroccan argan oil and hydrating glycerin, plus the seriously addictive lemon-rose cocktail of Rose Jam perfume.

If your hair’s bleached, super thick or has to work extra hard, take Coconut Rice Cake Shampoo Bar with you and treat it to a generous moisture boost, thanks to a conditioning duo of creamed coconut and organic coconut milk - plus soften each strand with soya lecithin.

For hair that needs just the softest of touches, Angel Hair Shampoo Bar is a choice from heaven. Aquafaba adds shine and strength to the hair, rose water and witch hazel calm and soothe the scalp, while ylang ylang oil tones and gently stimulates for a healthy head of hair.

Turn up the volume

If plenty of volume or a squeaky-clean feeling is what you’re after, look for shampoo bars with citrus ingredients, herbs or sea salt. These natural cleansers will leave your hair feeling light and lively, and your scalp fresh, clean and perfectly balanced.

Montalbano Shampoo Bar has a trifecta of deep-cleansing lemony goodness: lemon juice, lemon peel and lemon oil—all to keep hair clean, fresh and shiny without any added weight. How can a simple lemon work so much magic? Lemons smooth down the hair’s cuticle, allowing more light to reflect off each strand: voila, shine for days!

For big, beachy hair with lots of shine, check out Seanik. Mineral-rich sea salt infuses volume while Irish Moss gel and nori seaweed soften. This one has similar effects to our bestselling Big Shampoo.

Make your hair a shining example of gloss and substance with Flyway Hair Shampoo Bar. Volumizing sea salt and sarcocornia powder thicken up your fine hair, while lemon oil cleanses the scalp and adds shine, while chamomile soothes.

New Shampoo Bar’s spicy cinnamon lathers leave your scalp feeling tingly-fresh! Stimulating clove and peppermint are blended with nettles and rosemary to soothe irritated scalps and leave locks shiny and soft.

Calm, cool and collected

If your scalp tends to be temperamental, we know that shampooing can be a less-than-pleasant experience. Calming essential oils like lavender, rose, chamomile and soothing ingredients like oat milk and honey are ideal for appeasing upset scalps, while keeping hair in tip-top shape too.

Inspired by our bestselling honey-toffee soap, Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar uses soothing, softening fair trade honey and gently cleansing bergamot oil to leave your scalp feeling calm, cool and collected, and your hair soft and smelling like a sweet desert.

Dealing with a dry, flaky or sensitive scalp? Soak and Float Shampoo Bar to the rescue! A soothing blend of cade oil and rose oil soothes irritation on the scalp, giving a much-needed bit of relief to a hurtin’ head. This one’s been a customer fave for ages—find out what all the fuss is about!

A purple wonder, our Jumping Juniper Shampoo Bar clarifies congested or oily scalps with juniper berry oil. A herbal duo of lavender and rosemary soothe and calm the skin and senses while gently cleansing.
