HiBAR Shampoo and Conditioner Bars
It's crazy to think that companies have spent so much time, money, and effort shipping two things around the world that were completely unnecessary: plastic and water. It turns out that you don't need plastic for shampoo and conditioner, and we have water right at home - so it's time to change this ridiculous waste! Thankfully, you and I realize this and are here to help shift the norm.
HiBAR is a salon quality shampoo that is Made in the USA, in Minnesota. With a set you get one each of shampoo and conditioner bars with a light citrus scent. We also offer the choice of buying the shampoo only. By putting HiBAR in your home you are accomplishing three important things:
- Adding a few less giant plastic bottles to our landfills
- Not shipping water needlessly around the country saving fuel and carbon emissions
- Supporting Eco After and HiBAR which are both small USA businesses focused on serving YOU with the best eco-friendly products possible
Currently all bars qualify for free and fast shipping! Getting a set as a gift can also spread the word about sustainability and going plastic-free. Let a friend or family member discover the joy of going zero waste and contributing NO plastic!
FAQ from HiBAR
FAQ from HiBAR HQ:
Great news… all our products are color-safe!
Dry hair that can get frizzy and dull.
Our Moisturize Shampoo and Moisturize Conditioner have rice protein to fortify your hair. If you’re washing often, try skipping the occasional wash and treat only with our Moisturize Conditioner
Dry scalp that sometimes gets flaky.
First, choose the HiBAR that’s right for your hair. (All our shampoos are made from a gentle surfactant that is less drying to your skin.) Then, when you’re washing, give your scalp a thorough massage with your fingertips.
Oily hair that I feel I need to wash often.
Oily hair can come from life stage (younger people tend to have more active oil glands in their scalps) or even from washing too often. Look into either our Maintain or our Moisturize bars. The Maintain Shampoo will definitely cut back on the oiliness, and you can always finish off with a Moisturize Conditioner to add back some hydration.
Hair that takes on a lot of styling products like gels or oils.
Throw in a regular treatment with our Maintain Shampoo and Maintain Conditioner They clean gently but thoroughly, to get rid of any build up.
Hair that’s oily at the roots but dry at the ends.
We’d recommend either our Maintain or Moisturize bars, depending upon how often you wash.
For more regular washing we’d start with the Moisturize bars, but make sure you give your scalp a thorough fingertip massage while you wash.
If you’re washing more like every four or five days, try the Maintain Shampoo bar, and concentrate your washing to your roots (and, again, give your scalp a good working over with your fingertips.)
In either case, for conditioning, concentrate the application of the conditioner on your middle and ends.
Fine hair that looks a bit thin.
Look at our Volumize bars. They contain rice proteins and Vitamin B to give more body and bounce to thin or fine hair.
Curly or wavy hair.
Our Volumize bars contain rice protein and Vitamin B5 to add definition to waves and curls. Also, a big bonus is that for anyone following the curly girl method, our products do not contain sulfates, silicones or parabens! So, all clear!
Most people switch to HiBAR without any transition time. But for some, it can take a week or two for your scalp to adapt to the sulfate-free formulas.
There’s nothing wrong with mixing and matching products. For example, having a Maintain Shampoo bar on hand for an occasional deeper cleaning can work wonders.
Experiment with how often you wash. For example, sometimes, oily hair can be the result of TOO MUCH washing!
Once in a while, don’t shampoo at all, just use one of our conditioner bars. They each contain a tiny bit of surfactant, so they do have some cleaning capability, but not enough to interrupt with the conditioning process.
Remember – exfoliate! That is, when you’re washing, give your scalp a good massage with the tips of your fingers. This will clear your scalp of any dry skin or oily build up.
Rub the bar into wet hair until lather is formed. Shampoo and/or condition hair as desired, then wash out as usual.
