Bottle vs. Bar
Here at EcoEx, we're pretty big fans of the plastic-free, all natural shampoo bar; but if you still need a bit of persuasion to move from the bottled stuff to the bars, then here are just some of the reasons to make the switch:
Shampoo bars are...
Not just great for your hair, but also the planet!
Every bit of plastic ever made still exists somewhere - a very scary thought indeed. More than 60 million plastic bottles end up in landfill and incinerators every day – a total of about 22 billion last year and if we continue to consume at this pace, there will soon be more plastic in our oceans than fish! So why not help in the war on plastic, by ditching those bottles for a package-free shampoo bar; and help us clean up this mess, one piece of plastic at a time.
Super concentrated, which means less really is more!
Shampoo bars are highly concentrated, which means a little goes a long way! A shampoo bar typically lasts between 80-100 washes. Whereas an average bottle of shampoo is around 25-30 washes.
Not only do these superhero bars work on washing hair, but can also be used as a body wash and even to clean clothes when you're travelling.
Your average shampoo bottle contains a cocktail of chemical ingredients and preservatives, whereas 'most' shampoo bars are natural and cruelty free. Our ALTER/NATIVE shampoo bars are vegan and cruelty free, made with essential oils and free from nasties like parabens, SLS and SLES.
Great for travel
Shampoo bars are small, compact and what's more you don't have to worry about squeezing them into your tiny liquids bag at the airport!
Actually clean your hair!
This may seem like an obvious statement for a shampoo, but many bottled shampoos can actually strip your hair and scalp of natural oils. This can lead to excess oil production and greasy hair that needs to be washed more often. Shampoo bars will gradually help to re-balance the hairs natural oils, which leads to healthier hair that isn't reliant on chemical products.
