Solid shampoo comes in the form of a bar of soap. It often contains more naturally derived ingredients than liquid shampoo and is therefore healthier for your skin. Solid shampoos do not contain water, so there is no need to add preservatives. They are composed of two main ingredients: a surfactant to clean impurities and a vegetable butter to nourish the hair. An ecological alternative to traditional shampoos, they are easy to transport.
Solid shampoos are just as effective at cleaning, purifying and protecting your hair as conventional shampoos. They are often enriched with naturally derived active ingredients, so you can choose the one that suits you best according to your hair's needs. Solid shampoos are very well tolerated as they contain little or no irritants. When used, they generally lather less than liquid shampoos, which may give the impression that they do not clean the hair as well. But in reality, this has no impact on their effectiveness: on the contrary, high-foaming skincare products often contain non-naturally derived ingredients that make the product react and are therefore more aggressive.
Solid shampoos are not more aggressive to the hair than their liquid alternatives. On the contrary, since they contain fewer ingredients, they are generally gentler on the hair. If you have a particularly sensitive scalp, you can even opt for a high-tolerance, hypoallergenic formula to respect the balance of your skin and gently clean your hair.
Solid shampoo is very easy to use: in the shower, rub it between your hands and then apply it to your roots and massage it into your scalp. Repeat this step if necessary until all of your hair is covered. There is no need to insist on the ends as they are generally drier and receive some product anyway as it glides along your hair. Leave on for a few minutes to receive the full benefit of the active ingredients in your shampoo, then rinse with clean water.
If stored properly, solid shampoo can last a long time. Dry it on a soap dish, then store it in a box once dry. Be careful not to get it wet every time you shower so that it doesn't get wasted or cracked.
The ideal solid shampoo depends on the needs of your hair. Here are some tips on how to choose the right care for your hair.
