Once upon a time, I found a conditioner that I fell in love with. It was the first product I found and used in my hair that made a noticeable difference. The scent was lovely, the smoothness was undeniable. The price was high, and I didn’t mind paying. It was infused with silk protein, and left my hair smoother than ever.
Unfortunately, this unicorn product and I had to cut our ties. it also comes in a large plastic bottle. If you know me, you know I do my best to avoid single use plastics, and this meant switching from store or salon bought hair products to ones I’m able to make from home.
Shampoo and conditioner bars are a compact solution to this problem. Brands like Lush popularized them, and the environmental impact is huge. That’s my kind of beauty success story!
A major pro of using shampoo and conditioning bars is that : they are often made with natural, non toxic products that are difficult to avoid, even in salon quality blends. They are ideal to travel with. And they last for an eternity. The only con I can come up with is: I miss the lather that comes with liquid product from a jar or bottle. But to me, it’s well worth looking passed, if I can make my family non toxic products from the comfort of my kitchen.
To make these beauties I used items I had readily available in my kitchen, and also one that I bought in bulk to use for many products in the future. Silk protein. This can be omitted, but to me, it felt necessary in attempt to recreate my silk conditioner obsession.
