Soaps or bars are the ultimate way to save the planet. Consume beauty doesn’t have to mean anymore wasting plastic and deteriorate the environment. Slowly the trend is changing and recently Garnier has embrace a new way of doing shampoos. Their new shampoo bars are environment friendly and I had to try it to see if they would be hydrating as a regular shampoo in a plastic bottle.
After moving to Tenerife, every time I have the chance to come to London, I take advantage to go to Boots and see the latest beauty products. When I saw Garnier Shampoo Bars I was speechless. I was already open to the concept of body lotion bars, which I have tried from Bossy Glossy (read article here), but shampoos bars that was totally unexpected.
Could a shampoo soap be as good as any other shampoo I used so far in a plastic bottle? Why not take risks and follow the conscious steps to little by little save the planet. Sustainability is the motto!
Garnier Ultimate Blends haircare range is made with nourishing oils to moisture deeply hair. With a vegan formula based on ingredients that are collected ethically and fit into the recycling philosophy, they naturally strengthen hair.
The Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo Bars are the last addition to their haircare. They are available in 5 options according to different type of hair or hair needs:
- Coconut Hydrating Shampoo Bar with Aloe Vera for Normal Hair ;
- Honey Treasures Strengthening for Damaged Hair ;
- Ginger Recovery Revitalising for Weak, Dull Hair ;
- Marvellous Oils Nourishing Shampoo for Dry, Dull Hair ;
- Delicate Oat Softening for Sensitive Scalp and Fragile Hair.
From the 5 options, I decided to try the last one: Delicate Oat Softening Shampoo Bar for Sensitive Scalp and Fragile Hair.
Garnier Delicate Oat Softening Shampoo Bar is vegan, composed from natural ingredients like oat milk and rice cream to cleanse scalp gently and hydrate damaged hair. The formula is 97% biodegradable and silicone free.
I was actually surprised how much I liked to try this shampoo bar. The scent is lovely like a mixture of vanilla and oat. The moment you put it under water, it creates as much foam as a “normal” shampoo and it removed all dirt from my hair and scalp, leaving my hair soft. The bar lasts for a long time and it doesn’t break easily as you would expect from an usual soap.
Am I conving to use this shampoo regularly? On holidays probably yes, because it saves space in the luggage and for camping is perfect, but I’m so used to my Olaplex Shampoo No 4, that I find it hard to change. Although, it’s good to slowly change some habits and remember our responsibility towards the planet to reduce the consumption of plastic.
