Tonnes of packaging comes from our households and especially our bathrooms. Solid and waste-free hair products are the future. Here’s some of my recommendations.
Lush is a great place to look for waste-free haircare, which is why I first gave a go to Suggar Daddy-O Solid Conditioner.
The ingredients described this vegan formula as luxioursly hydrating:
linseed infusion, alongside a nourishing lineup of extra virgin coconut oil and argan oil
I found rubbing it straight onto my hair worked best but you definitely have to wash your hair with extra care – it may not seem like it but the product can really build up.
I didn’t find it to be super hydrating but I must admit my hair felt super soft, the type where you almost aggressively tell people to touch it and see for themselves. Also, one bar lasted me half a year which makes it awesome value for your money.
Currently I’m using another vegan conditioner called Jungle which is supposed to “tame wild hair”:
A solid conditioner packed with tropical fruit, oils and cocoa butter to calm your mane.
I prefer the formula to Suggar Daddy-O as it’s creamier and a little goes a long way.
Next up, Jason and the Argan Oil shampoo. First things first, the scent is out of this world and my whole bathroom smells like it ever since I got it!
It lathers super well and is more fool-proof. It doesn’t leave my hair with oily buildup and sometimes I can miss the conditioner and my hair will still look relatively silky-looking. I’m currently on my second one of these and I don’t plan on looking back!
Another Lush shampoo I tried was Montalbano:
Sicilian lemon oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice make hair gleam from root to tip.
I was a little dissappointed as it didn’t last nearly as long (~2 months) but it did the job of cleansing my hair pretty well.
Lastly, I tried the Living Naturally Coconutty Soapnut Shampoo Bar.
The vitamins, amino acids, and high fat content promote healthy cell growth and are great for maintaining and healing dry, itchy scalps.
I think I used this for about a month before I had to go back to my Lush one. Once I started washing it off, my hair felt squeeky and stripped yet the shampoo would still build up at the back! Maybe because it’s meant not only for your hair but body and face as well, it just didn’t work as a shampoo. Not a fan.
