Hi girlies! Are you interested in entering the world of sustainable and eco-friendly hair care? If you're tired of dealing with single-use plastic bottles and want a more environmentally friendly hair care routine, you're in the right place! 

This blog will tell you all you need to know about shampoo bars! So, whether you're an environmental enthusiast or just looking to make a positive change in your daily routine, using shampoo bars is a simple yet impactful step towards a more sustainable lifestyle 


What Are Shampoo Bars? 

Shampoo bars are a natural, environmentally friendly alternative to normal, bottled shampoos. They do the same thing (they may even do it better) but they come as a solid bar rather than a liquid – kind of like a bar of soap!  


What Are The Benefits Of Our Shampoo Bars?  

Did you know that approximately 552 million shampoo bottles end up in landfill every year? This amount of bottles could fill 1,164 American Football fields and take around 450 years to decompose. Shampoo bars have become so popular recently because of their minimal packaging and being more cost-effective and long-lasting compared to bottled shampoo.  

One of the key benefits of transitioning to our shampoo bars is that they’re free of harmful chemicals, such as syndopal. These chemicals are commonly found in liquid shampoos and are known to strip the hair of its natural oils, leading to damage. 
Nowadays, the solid shampoo bars and the fact they’re small and easy to use make them a popular choice for travelling, and they’re long-lasting too.  


How To Use A Shampoo Bar 

Using these bars are pretty straight forward: 

  1. Lather the bar between your hands, creating some lovely foam! 
  2. Rub the bubbles into the lengths of your hair and massage them into your scalp.  
  3. Breathe deeply, taking in the comforting natural aroma. When you're done, rinse thoroughly to remove all the suds.  
  4. Enjoy your soft, strengthened hair!  


How To Store A Shampoo Bar 

To prolong the life of your shampoo bar, make sure it can air dry between uses to stop it from getting soggy. You can do this by keeping it away from direct water in the shower and using a storage container with drainage holes.  

We here at FFS Beauty recommend a magnetic soap holder! You just place it into the shampoo bar and place it in a secure location where no water can get to it. It keeps your bars fresher for longer, sticks to your tiles securely with a powerful magnetic suction cup to make the bars easy to reach in the shower or bath. 

This will help maintain the bar's firmness and extend its lifespan, meaning you get your money’s worth and ensure there’s no product wastage!  


What Makes Ours Different? 

Our bars contain sustainable palm oil. Sustainable palm oil is produced when a certain method is used to ensure the palm oil has minimal impact on the environment of the regions it’s grown in.

The main rules for the production of sustainable palm oil are set by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which says palm oil should be made without cutting down forests. Studies show that palm oil made this way has a smaller carbon footprint.

Did you also know, that the usual shampoo in single-use plastic packaging is 75-85% water? Our shampoo bars are purely natural ingredients to help you, all you have to do is add the water from your home and you’re good to go!

Not to mention, these are letterbox-friendly! This means you can get your orders delivered straight through your door, fuss-free! You don’t have to worry about being in, the weather or the carbon emissions of travelling to and from the post office – we’ve got you covered!

So not only are our soaps high foaming, organic and pH balanced, they’re also RSPO certified – they’re the perfect ethical shower addition.
