Solid hair care products

Hair care obviously follows this trend of solid organic cosmetics. Solid shampoos are gradually replacing those in plastic bottles in bathrooms. In addition to their ecological side, they are also very economical . On average, solid shampoos hold up to more than 80 washes , i.e. 3 times more than those in the bottle.

In addition to this cost-effective side in terms of purchase and duration, natural solid shampoos are at least as effective as conventional shampoos.

They foam little, a characteristic due to less surfactant in their formulation. The surfactant is the cleaning agent generally present in soapy care. One of the properties of this agent is that it is an emulsifier:source of foam from industrialized shampoos. Although cleaning and effective, some surfactants, used by manufacturers, are unfortunately too aggressive. Solid shampoos have been designed with non-aggressive surfactants , they better preserve the skin and the hair fiber while guaranteeing optimal cleaning.
