Shampoo Bars: Worried if they’re right for you?
Did you know your liquid shampoo strips your hair of its precious oils? Have you considered ditching the SLS? If you have, chances are you’ve looked into what could be the perfect shampoo bar for you. Many liquid shampoos are detergent based; therefore shampoo bars have now become the obvious alternative.
What are shampoo bars?
Shampoo bars are the solid versions of shampoo, often made with natural oils and environmental friendly packaging. Although shampoo bars are normally crafted without harsh chemicals, preservatives or additives this doesn’t mean they’re necessarily good for the environment. In a few cases you’re likely to find palm oil creeping into the ingredient list of these bars. A few of these bars even contain artificial fragrances and colors. At The Happy Bathing Co. we do not make use of any forms of chemical, SLS or harsh additives in our shampoo bars. Shampoo bars have also eliminated the need for plastic bottles! If you’re an ardent shampoo bar user then congratulations! You’ve helped reduce the burden of plastic waste on our planet.
Shampoo bars handcrafted at The Happy Bathing Co. are cold processed bars, contain absolutely no chemicals, preservatives or sulphates and effectively clean your scalp. Even if you’ve heavily oiled your hair, our bars break down oils and get rid of excess scum and impurities leaving you with bouncy, clean and nourished locks. These bars are specifically formulated to target mild dandruff and are loaded with natural antiseptic and essential oils which in turn help counter greasiness.
Our shampoo bars include the following essential oils:
Rice Bran Oil

How does one use a shampoo bar?
One can gently rub it between wet palms and then apply the lather to your hair or directly rub it to your damp hair. We do not recommend washing your hair daily irrespective of the product but if you must, our bars are 100% safe for daily use.
