Coconut & Butters Shampoo Bar
Our new Coconut & Butters Shampoo Bar is a great start with going natural with your hair care!
Shampoo bars are a great way to reduce the plastic in your life. Our shampoo bars come in a small reusable organza bag, thus reducing plastic use. However, it’s your hair, and you probably aren’t going to switch to using a shampoo bar simply to get rid of a small amount of plastic in the landfill, right? Well, thankful, these bars are also better for your hair! Sadly, many, if not most, of the commercially available shampoos are loaded with synthetic detergents and chemicals! (Did you just say, “Yuck?” You’re at the right place! ) Some chemicals in commercial formulas are there for lather, others for detangling, and believe it or not, some are there to coat your hair for a smooth feel. Well, this may all “feel” good, and we understand that. But is it good for you hair long term? Is it good for you entire body, considering your skin absorbs a significant amount of whatever is put on it? That’s for you to decide, but here at Spero, we take a more natural look at everything.
Our Shampoo Bars are NOT Syndet bars!! What’s the difference? Well, Syndet is short for synthetic detergent bars. (Another “yuck.”)
So, we are up against a tough competitor. Shampoo on one hand and Syndet bars on the other. However, we honestly believe if you will give our shampoo bars a chance, and hold out through the transition period, you will be happier with your hair than you were with shampoo!
Yes, sorry, but there is usually a transition period for most people when they begin to use Shampoo Bars. If your hair is short, or your water is soft, your transition could be one or two showers. But if you have long hair, or hard water, you will probably experience a transition that may last for a few weeks even. We go into quite a bit of detail on this page here, along with giving some tips to make the transition easier and quicker. On that page just scroll down to read the information there. You will find it in the same section as you are reading here. We think you will find it worth the switch if you stick with it!
Lots of moisturizing Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Shea Butter, Mango and Sal! This makes for a creamy delightful bar! For extra conditioning we have used three times the natural butters in this bar than most of our soaps. So if you are among those whose hair loves butters, this bar was created for you!
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Loads of benefit from coconut for the hair, so we use lots of it in one bar! Coconut oil is great for the hair, and makes a great lather for our shampoo bars. However, while we use it as the majority ingredient in most of our Shampoo Bars, we also load up lots of other nutrition for your hair as well. Literally every ingredient is chosen in our Bars for how good it is for your hair!
Most of our soaps use a tea or milk to saponify* the soap, and in this one we used Strong Nettle tea since Nettle is so good for hair.
*Saponifying is simply the process of turning oils into soap.
