Shampoo Bar

Our shampoo bars are alternatives to traditional liquid shampoos and are made with natural ingredients free from harsh chemicals. Browse our collection and enjoy the benefits of switching to our shampoo hair bar for healthier, more eco-conscious haircare.

What is a shampoo bar?

A shampoo bar is essentially your trusted shampoo in a compact, solid form. Unlike the traditional liquid shampoos that come in bulky plastic bottles, these bars resemble soap bars but are specifically formulated for washing and nourishing your hair.

Here at Hairhouse, our solid shampoo bars are made to provide a gentle cleansing experience for different hair types and concerns. They lather luxuriously, moisturising your hair and leaving it feeling clean, nourished and refreshed.

Switching to our shampoo hair bars means contributing to a healthier planet by reducing plastic use and unnecessary water in your haircare. They’re also long-lasting, which is why you're getting great value.

What do shampoo bars do?

Our shampoo hair bars offer everything you love about liquid shampoo without the plastic waste. They're designed to cleanse and nourish your hair from root to tip. They’re also formulated to create a rich lather that provides a balance of cleansing and conditioning without leaving your locks dry or heavy.

These compact haircare goodies are perfect for every hair type, including normal hair, curly hair and dry hair. Some even address common hair concerns like frizz, dandruff and itchy scalp. Their solid form also means no spills or leaks, so they’re perfect for travel or reducing clutter in your shower.

How to use a shampoo bar

Here at Hairhouse, we’ve made it super easy for you to incorporate a shampoo hair bar into your haircare routine. If you’re new to the concept, here’s a straightforward guide on how to use it for healthy hair:

  1. Start by thoroughly wetting both your hair and the bar.
  2. Rub the bar between your hands to create a lather, or glide it directly over your hair from roots to ends.
  3. Gently massage the lather into your scalp and hair to ensure thorough cleaning.
  4. Wash out all the suds to avoid any leftover residue.
  5. Keep your bar in a dry spot to help it last longer.
  6. Follow up with a conditioner bar for extra nourishment.

Are shampoo bars better for your hair?

Deciding if solid shampoo bars are better for your hair comes down to looking at their benefits. These solid cleaners are packed with natural ingredients, often skipping harsh chemicals like sulphates and parabens found in many liquid shampoos. This makes them a gentler choice for your scalp and strands.

Our bars are concentrated with goodness. Without the filler of water that's in liquid shampoos, you're getting more of what your hair really needs. This means a little goes a long way, which is great for both your wallet and the environment.

What to expect when switching to a shampoo bar?

Switching to a shampoo hair bar from traditional liquid shampoos is a change your hair will thank you for, though it might take a little time to show results. That’s because traditional products often contain detergents that strip away natural oils.

When you first make the switch, your hair might react a bit unpredictably. You may notice your hair feels a bit different. This is normal; it's just your hair getting used to being cleaned without harsh chemicals.

We encourage you to give your hair and scalp time to adapt to this natural, gentler cleansing method. Everyone's experience will vary based on hair type and history with hair products, but with patience and consistent use, your hair will adapt, revealing its natural health and shine!

Which shampoo bar is for you?

We recommend considering your unique hair needs when selecting a shampoo bar.

For dry or curly hair, look for bars enriched with shea butter or coconut oil to provide essential moisture without heaviness. Those with oily hair might find bars containing tea tree oil or citrus extracts helpful for balancing oil levels and refreshing the scalp.

Choose unscented options if you’re sensitive to fragrance. And for dull-looking hair, opt for bars with chamomile to add a luminous shine to your locks.

How do you store a shampoo bar?

To make the most of your shampoo hair bar, we recommend storing it away from water when not in use. A draining soap dish works wonders by keeping it dry and ready for your next wash.

If you're travelling, wrapping your bar in a dry towel or using a special container can keep it in good condition. We suggest using a wooden soap dish to prevent your bar from becoming mushy and reduce plastic waste.
