If you’ve ever washed your hair and felt like you’ve removed all the goodness, only leaving behind a dry mess of brittle strands that have seen better days, it may be time to ditch the traditional shampoo and opt for something all the more gentle. Lush have a huge offering of solid shampoo bars that are completely natural and equate to around two regular sized bottles of the bubbly stuff – that’s how much use you’ll get out of one little bar! Not only does that make them incredibly economical, save huge amounts of plastic as well as space in your bathroom, but a thifty way to look after your hair. One of these will set you back only in the region of a fiver, while providing specific targeted care – from the gentle formula and almond scent of Honey I Washed My Hair, to the volume-building and shine wonder of Braziliant.
Solid shampoos still aren’t as adopted as they should be in the UK, but they really can help to keep hair in tip top condition without stripping them of goodness every time you wash. Jason And The Argan Oil uses soothing rose absolute and agar gel to calm your scalp, while hardworking glycerine and argan oil tame fly-away hairs; Montalbano uses a Mediterranean blend of green olives improves the tensile strength of your locks, while rosemary absolute cleanses and refreshes your roots; Copperhead utilises Persian red henna to give endless gloss and colour to brunettes and redheads with the irresistible fragrance of roasted cocoa, coffee and vanilla.
These smell amazing, work incredibly well and last for blooming ages – but they’re not just great for your barnets. The solid shampoos make incredible cosmetic brush cleansers, as you can work your dirty tools in circular motions around the patty base to lift away foundation or powder. Some of the ‘official’ brush cleansers are really quite pricey, but these work as a much more affordable alternative; the natural ingredients not only leave brushes super clean, but feeling soft and nourished too. Just make sure you don’t pick up one intended for coloured hair or full of essential oils, or you could damage the natural hairs! These are so multi-functional and fun that there’s no reason not to pick up a few this weekend just in the name of research. It may take a while to get used to swapping a liquid for solid, but the results speak for themselves… Would you consider making the swap to a solid shampoo?
