Planet-friendly and seriously good for your hair, this is why Lush shampoo bars are the eco beauty product you need to buy asap...

1. They're Great For Your Hair

Each shampoo bar is packed with natural ingredients and essential oils like seaweed, lemon oil and chamomile that your hair loves. Simply wet your hair as normal then stroke the bar up and down the lengths to get a good lather going. Rinse the shampoo out and follow with conditioner if you fancy it. Then leave the bar to air dry ready for its next use.

2. They Last Forever

A single shampoo bar is so concentrated that it has the equivalent hair washing power of three medium sized shampoo bottles and lasts for over 80 washes. That's a whole lot of showers.

3. Which Means You Save Money

Buying shampoo less often means more money saved for the important things in life like prosecco. And with prices starting at £6.50, it's already a snip compared to our usual designer hair products.

4. They Can Help To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

The compact shower essential also has a positive effect on your carbon footprint. One lorry full of solid shampoo bars holds roughly the same number of washes as fifteen lorries filled with liquid shampoo. Now that's eco-friendly maths we can get on board with.

5. They're One Step Closer To A Plastic-Free Fashion

We throw away 552 million shampoo bottles annually, with plastic packaging accounting for over 80% of litter found on beaches and 300,000 tons of floating debris in the world's oceans.

Lush shampoo bars are entirely plastic free - when they're gone, they're gone. No waste whatsoever. And, if you're taking your bar on the go, you can house it in one of Lush's re-usable metal tins.

So it kind of makes sense to adjust your beauty routine and help reduce plastic waste, even if it's by just one shampoo bottle.

No more stressing about keeping your hoard of toiletries under the 100ml measure when you're going on holiday, solid shampoo bars are just that, solid. Which means they don't count towards your liquid limit. Genius.

7. Which Makes Them Ideal For Festivals

Less liquids, equals less opportunity for shampoo to leak all over your beloved sequin shorts and somehow seep into every corner of your tent.

Simply pop a solid shampoo in its tin, whack it in your rucksack and you've got guaranteed leak-free hair washing. Ideal for when third day dirty hair gets a little too much.

8. They Smell Amazing

Using a majority of natural ingredients means Lush shampoo bars smell insanely good. Like Herbal Essences advert levels of good.

Whether it's neroli oil in the , mimosa flower in the , or organic cocoa butter in the , one thing is for sure, they smell delicious.
