Believe it or not, long before the invention of liquid shampoos and soaps, everything came in bar form! In fact, shampoo bars have been around longer than any other modern hair cleaning product.

What is a shampoo bar?

Shampoo bars are a natural conditioning shampoo in a solid bar form. Our natural shampoo bars are made in small batches with wholesome ingredients to naturally clean and condition your scalp and leave hair soft, shiny, and, most of all, healthy.

Why are they better than "regular" shampoo?

Next time you are at the store, read the ingredients on the back of a bottle of "regular" shampoo - and there is your reason. These shampoos are a chemical concoction that robs your hair of its natural beauty and strength. Little better than laundry detergent, these shampoos actually do more damage to your hair than good. The reasoning behind this is these companies want to sell more products. If your hair is damaged they have a million different things to fix that, when really, the thing to fix it, is just not using their shampoo!

Beyond that, the ingredients - SLS, detergents, etc - found in liquid shampoo do immeasurable amounts of damage to the environment. Every time you shower you are rinsing those chemicals that are destroying your hair straight into rivers and eventually the ocean. Everything we send down the drain can end up in local waterways. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found chemicals from personal care products in nearly every water supply they have tested.

What is the difference between your bar soap and your shampoo bar?

While our bar soap and shampoo bar contain similar ingredients, the proportions of them are different. Our shampoo bar is a special kind of mild and gentle that will leave your hair so much happier!

Do you really expect me to use a bar of soap on my hair?

YES! Yes all around! It doesn’t matter if your hair is straight, curly, short, long, thick or fine our shampoo bar will bring out its natural beauty!

There is often a transition period as you switch from your chemical laden shampoo to a natural shampoo bar, which varies from person to person.  Your hair will feel different from what you are used to right away and may be a little hard to manage through the detox phase. Your hair literally has to learn how live without the chemicals that it has become dependent on.

The best things about shampoo bars in a nutshell:

Natural: Shampoo bars do not contain harsh sulfates, parabens, or detergents.

Gentle: Our gentle shampoo bars do not strip hair of natural oils and are rich in natural vegetable glycerin allowing hair to retain its natural moisture while conditioning and protecting your hair. Some of our customers have even been able to ditch their conditioner their hair has been so soft!

Convenient: They are great to keep in your gym locker and for camping. They won't leak and can be packed in carry-on luggage.

Environmentally Friendly: Biodegradable. No plastic bottles. No toxic chemicals.


When it comes to your skin and hair going back to the basics is best. Our ingredients use the simple yet powerful properties of nature to nourish and protect your skin and hair, while respecting our planet and leaving it a little bit cleaner than when we found it.
