6 Vegan and Plastic Free Shampoo-Bars for Your Precious Hair

Common cosmetic products consist largely of water and, due to their liquid, creamy or gel-like consistency, usually require heavy packaging. Shampoos, lotions and creams therefore generate a lot of unnecessary plastic waste. Many hair-care products also contain microplastics in a wide variety of forms that people would rather not smear on their skin or hair.

The zero-waste alternative to conventional hair care products are hair soaps and shampoo bars that are easy to make yourself. If you want to buy the sustainable hair care ready-made, you can find plastic-free products in many unpackaged stores and online stores. Here are some natural shampoo bars.
