Ditch the chemical cocktail routine and nurture your mane the natural way with an organic shampoo bar

The struggles of bad hair from a bad shampoo

If you’ve struggled with finding the perfect shampoo for your hair type, you’re not alone.

Finding a shampoo suited for your unique hair needs amidst the endless specialty options can seem impossible. Formulations touting specific benefits — while ignoring how ingredients may negatively interact for some hair types — litter store shelves.

It often feels like you require a different shampoo for each concern — dryness, oiliness, color protection, and so on. Keeping pace with and purchasing the latest releases simply isn’t practical or good for your hair (or your wallet!).

Wouldn’t it be nice if one shampoo checked all the boxes? A nourishing, residue-free formula without harsh sulfates that works for ALL hair types? 

At PURC, we believe such a versatile botanical cleanser SHOULD exist. One combining thoughtful plant oils and extracts that balance the scalp and strands. Well, what if we told you such a versatile natural shampoo DOES exist? One that expertly combines botanical ingredients to care for hair without leaving buildup behind?

Introducing PURC’s Basin White Shampoo Bar!

Purc Shampoo Bar

Read on as we get to the root of what makes this novel solid shampoo stand out and why it suits even sensitive hair.

The Problem With Shampoos on the Market

Chemicals used in shampoos

To understand why the Basin White Shampoo Bar offers a better hair-cleansing approach, let’s examine the 4 key things that are a problem with regular store-bought shampoos:

  1. Harsh Sulfates – Most contain sulfates like sodium laureth sulfate that aggressively strip natural oils. This leads to depleted moisture, frizz, weakened strands, and irritation over time.
  2. Silicones – CIngredients like dimethicone and cyclomethicone temporarily smooth but remain stuck on strands. Buildup ultimately clogs follicles impeding growth cycles.
  3. Formaldehyde Releasers – Many shampoos utilize formaldehyde-releasing agents to prevent spoilage. But these elicit allergic skin reactions in those sensitive to the ingredient.
  4. Artificial Fragrances – Rather than true essential oils, harsh unnatural perfumes that stir headaches frequently add scent. Their role? Concealing chemical odors.

By disturbing your scalp’s microbial harmony, removing protective sebum, and forcing repeated clarifying, liquid shampoos often worsen issues initially.

When used daily, these chemicals disturb the scalp’s natural microbiome, strip away protective oils, and actually exacerbate issues like frizz and dandruff over time. The effects build up so your hair looks progressively worse requiring more aggressive cleansing to remove residue.

This vicious cycle and declining hair health inspire many to seek out gentler, botanically-based formulas. This journey often leads people to try natural shampoo bars which provide a safe yet effective alternative.

Why Shampoo Bars Are Ideal For A Non-Toxic Wash

Traditional shampoo bars have an inherently toxin-free formula because:

  1. They Skip Lathering Agents – Shampoo bars don’t need such ingredients like sulfates to work. Their solid formula already allows a mild bubbly lather as you massage the bar directly into your scalp.
  2. They Require Fewer Preservatives – The compact format and exclusion of water in shampoo bars eliminates the need for added preservatives. This makes rancidity and separation less likely even with a shelf life over a year.  
  3. They Cut Down On Packaging – Shampoo bars ditch plastic bottles reducing their carbon footprint. This zero-waste hair care option allows sustainable beauty too.
  4. They Offer Better Value – With concentrated plant oils and butters, shampoo bars last longer than bottled shampoo. Some bars equal 3 regular bottles stretching how far each purchase takes you.

With growing consumer awareness, artisanal shampoo bars made from botanical components present an eco-conscious path to non-toxic hair care. But beware – not ALL natural shampoo bars live up to their healthy image in practice. Some contain hidden fillers or untested ingredients that worsen hair health over time. 

This is why carefully examining the ingredients list of any natural shampoo alternative is essential. The PURC Basin White Shampoo Bar passes that test with its thoughtfully curated botanical components that nourish all hair types.

The Plant Power Behind The Basin White Shampoo Bar

Shampoo bars use only the best organic ingrediants

As a pioneer in the natural hair care space, PURC understands that sourcing high-quality organic ingredients is paramount for healthy scalp and strands. PURC refuses brewing formulations with anything less than the highest quality botanicals sustainably sourced. Our team steadfastly vets every ingredient selected for purity, safety, and efficacy.

In the case of the Basin White Shampoo Bar, PURC identifies and integrates the following brilliant botanicals to gently cleanse hair. Extensive research identified the following brilliant plants and oils for gently cleansing all hair types:

Organic Aloe Leaf Juice Powder  

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera gel contains 75 active compounds like vitamins, minerals, sugars, enzymes, lignin, saponins, salicylic acids, and amino acids. This plant offers well-studied benefits for skin and scalp health:

  • Soothes inflammation and reduces dandruff
  • Boosts moisture retention in hair  
  • Stimulates circulation to hair follicles
  • Lightly exfoliates buildup from follicles
  • Softens and conditions hair texture

Organic Shea Butter

Shea Butter

The shea tree only grows in Africa in arid deserts making shea butter an ethically wild-harvested ingredient. Shea butter smoothes down the cuticle layer to:

  • Hydrate dry, brittle strands
  • Shield against UV and heat damage
  • Reduce frizz and flyaway hairs
  • Imparts softness and shine
  • Boosts elasticity for detangling

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil for hair

Coconut oil is uniquely suited for hair health because its fatty acid profile closely matches the scalp’s natural oils. Specifically, lauric acid has an innate affinity for hair proteins to:

  • Penetrate shaft for deep conditioning
  • Protect and volumize strands
  • Treat dandruff and scalp issues
  • Prevent protein loss from hair
  • Add luster and manageability

Alongside these hair heroes, supporting ingredients like cocoa seed butter, olive fruit oil, and castor seed oil reinforces the humectant and emollient activity. This optimizes the moisturization and smoothing benefits for all hair types.

Vitamin E, vitamin B complex and provitamin B5 (panthenol) fill nutritional gaps that can undermine follicle and shaft integrity. Lastly geranium, ylang-ylang, and tea tree oils provide aroma while defending against bacteria for healthy scalps.

Through these thoughtful functional botanical picks, the Basin White Shampoo Bar fulfills hair’s cleansing and caring needs from root to tip!  

Why It Works For All Hair Types 

Many shampoos claim they can handle all textures but if you read reviews, someone is always unhappy with the results. Maybe the formula weighed their curls down or couldn’t tackle a sensitive, flaky scalp. 

The Basin White Shampoo Bar breaks this cycle with its mild yet thorough wash process using premium organic oils.

Here’s a breakdown of why it expertly caters to different hair types.

Dry, Damaged Hair

Dehydrated strands lack lipid protection leading to split ends and breakage. The Basin White bar’s rich conditioning butters – shea, cocoa, and olive oils – soak into porous fibers for dramatic improvement in hair elasticity, smoothness, and resilience.

Dull, Thinning Hair

Scalp circulation is critical for healthy follicle function and luscious locks. Aloe vera, coconut oil, and vitamin E in this bar boost blood flow to reactivate growth cycles so hair appears fuller. These ingredients also add luminous shine.

Oily Hair & Scalp

Excess sebum traps dirt and bacteria setting the stage for dandruff and inflammation. The Basin bar effectively clears away grime without being overly harsh thanks to coconut-derived lauric acid. Tea tree oil also reduces sebaceous oil production for longer refreshments between washes.

Color-Treated Hair

Without sufficient moisture, permanent and semi-permanent hair dye results in dry, faded locks. The conditioning butters in this bar seal in colorants for longevity while softening the high porosity damage caused by ammonia in such treatments.

How To Use The Shampoo Bar

Shampoo Bar

Switching to solid shampoo takes adjustment if you’re accustomed to sudsy liquid lather. However, once you get the motions down pat, many find it a fuss-free way to wash. Follow these simple steps to use :

  1. Start with wet hair – Rinse your hair thoroughly under the shower until saturated. The water content allows the bar ingredients to evenly coat strands.
  2. Work up a lather – Rub the bar directly onto your scalp and through hair ends forming a light foamy lather. Apply gently without scrubbing too hard.   
  3. Let it sit briefly – Before rinsing, let the lather rest for 2 to 3 minutes allowing botanicals to penetrate maximally. 
  4. Rinse completely – Wash out the shampoo until water runs clear ensuring no residue remains.
  5. Follow up with conditioner if needed – Use your favorite rinse-out conditioner or hair mask if extra moisture is desired. 

Pro tip: Store the bar in a well-draining soap dish between uses and it will last over 80 washes!

Are shampoo bars better for hair?

Shampoo bars can be beneficial for hair as they often contain natural ingredients, skip harsh chemicals, and reduce environmental impact with minimal packaging. They provide a gentle cleanse without stripping natural oils, promoting healthier hair over time.

How long does it take for hair to get used to a shampoo bar?

The adjustment period varies, but on average, it takes about a week for hair to adapt to a new shampoo bar. During this transition, your hair may experience changes as it detoxifies from conventional products. Stick with it, and you’ll likely see improved results.

Why do shampoo bars cost so much?

While the upfront cost of a shampoo bar may seem higher, they often last longer than liquid shampoo, providing better value over time. Quality ingredients, eco-friendly packaging, and handcrafted production contribute to the overall cost.

What should a shampoo bar contain?

A good shampoo bar should contain natural, nourishing ingredients like organic oils, butters, vitamins, and essential oils. Avoid harsh chemicals, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances. Look for ingredients that suit your hair type and address specific concerns.

Do you still use conditioner with a shampoo bar?

It depends on your hair type and preference. Some people find that shampoo bars provide enough moisture on their own, while others may still use a conditioner for added hydration. Experiment to find what works best for your hair.

Which is better, a shampoo bar, or liquid?

The choice between a shampoo bar and a liquid depends on personal preference. Shampoo bars are eco-friendly, travel-friendly, and often contain natural ingredients. Liquids may be more convenient for some. Consider your lifestyle and environmental impact.

How long will a shampoo bar last?

The longevity of a shampoo bar depends on usage, but on average, a high-quality bar can last 50-80 washes. Proper storage in a well-draining soap dish can extend its lifespan.

What are the disadvantages of using soap on your hair?

Traditional soap bars can have a high pH, which may be harsh on hair, leading to dryness and frizz. Shampoo bars formulated for hair are pH-balanced and address this issue, making them a better choice for hair care. Always check the product label for hair-friendly formulations.
