A great gift set, this collection of hair-based eco-swaps are perfect for someone wanting to revolutionise their hair care routine and make it kinder to the planet. It includes three super easy plastic-free, hair swaps. There's also a heart-shaped bath bomb included as an additional treat (well valentines day is approaching!).
Shampoo bars since they are often a real game changer when starting a plastic free journey! The natural ingredients really care for your hair, and it's a great way to reduce plastic packaging and cutting down on unneccessary chemicals. This shampoo and conditioner bar have been selected because they require no transition period, which many people find tricky and off-putting, as hair once again finds it's natural balance after using commerical bottled products which strip the hair of their natural goodness.

Want a scented bar, or unsure of hair type?
If you are unsure which hair type might suit you, or wish for a scented shampoo, then you can add this equally brilliant and slightly bigger shampoo bar from ecoLiving, for an additional £2. It smells of crisp, fresh notes of cranberry, elderberry, juniper berry with woody pine. It's still soap free, pH balanced and made from a combination of naturally derived, sustainable ingredients with no palm or petrochemicals, and suitable for all hair types.
Finding the right conditioner bar can be tricky but this one works - choose from Lemon ( whcih smells of lemon sherberts!) or zingy Rosemary & Lime. It lasts up to 80 washes, depending on hair length, and there's no transition period when you switch from commerical bottled conditioners.
It's designed to boost the appearance and feel of your hair whilst also reducing your plastic usage. This bar is universal, meaning it suitable for all hair types and only one product is needed for the whole family.
The conditioner is:

Hair Care Gift Set
Shampoo- Easy - Switching to some shampoo bars can be quite tricky but this works well without any additional steps - even in hard water which is amazing. This is because they are made with some natural-derived and palm-oil-free surfactants. These are gentle, PH-balanced and are sulphate-free which means no need for an acid rinse and no transition.It lathers and conditions well - but you do need to remember to leave it in your hair for a little while for it to be able to do this! It conditions well but I have found it can feel more difficult to get a brush through my hair without also running additional conditioner through it too.
Takes a little getting used to - If this is your first experience of using a conditioner bar then it's going to feel a little different, after all its a little more hands on than squeezing the bottle and applying. It's not difficult though and it's much easier to apply where you want it, e.g less on the scalp and more where you get tangles.
Shampoo - Rub the bar directly on your hair or you can lather it in yourhands and use the lather to wash your hair. You can begin by washing your roots first, and then rinse thoroughly. To make sure to get the most out of the conditioning ingredients of the 2in1 shampoos, apply some lather on your hair lengths and ends, and leave for 1-2 minutes (or longer if you need extra conditioning), like you would with a traditional conditioner, and then rinse.
Run a small amount of the conditioner bar through your hair to ensure hair is super easy to brush afterwards. A little will do since this bar will already have conditoned your hair. It glides on nicely and your hair will feel easier to get through even in the shower.
