Best Organic Shampoo Bars to add to your haircare collection

Top Ancient Living Organic Shampoo Bars for healthy hair


Eco-friendly, organic, and sustainable are not just merely buzz words at Ancient Living. We have realized the importance of leading more eco-conscious lifestyles and have thus formulated shampoo bars for the more eco-conscious consumers. While we all would love to lead a more sustainable lifestyle, we don’t realize that the switch is actually simpler than we think. These small steps eventually add up to make a bigger change and making these small steps are a lot easier than we think to lean towards the sustainable path in our everyday lives.

While making the switch from commercial shampoo to organic shampoo bars might seem daunting – here’s everything and more you need to know about shampoo bars to make a conscious informed choice!

What are shampoo bars?

Shampoo bars are hair cleansers in a solid form. They are made with gentle organic ingredients like oils and butters which make the hair feel super soft and nourished.

Are Shampoo Bars different from Soap bars?

There is a major difference between these two and unfortunately, they are marketed the same when in fact they are different. Soap bars are made from natural oils and are highly alkaline and produce different results from shampoo bars. Generally, soap bars are used to lather the face and body while shampoo bars are specifically designed for hair care. The difference lies in the pH levels since Soap ph is between 9 to 10 and is highly alkaline. On the other hand, our scalp and hair ph is between 4.5 to 5.5 which makes them more acidic. Your hair’s natural pH is acidic and most good shampoo bars will fall between 5.5 to 6.5 ph. So always choose shampoo bars for your hair.

Do shampoo bars lather and work as well as liquid commercial shampoo?

A shampoo bar is basically a concentrated version of shampoo with no water, therefore you will not need as much lather as with commercial liquid shampoos. Too much lather in shampoo bars could mean that the shampoo has very strong cleansing power so be careful since this can dry out your scalp.
