Wash it Out: Shampoo Alternatives
If the stuff you use to clean your tresses is unavailable, inconvenient, environmentally unfriendly or just plain doesn't work, then it may be time to switch to a shampoo alternative. There are a lot of products out there in the "no 'poo" revolution, so here's a look at the offerings. First, if you still want to soap up, there are lots of options, particularly in the solid shampoo bar family. Lush Cosmetics is famous for its fabulous solid shampoos that include formulas that mitigate the effects of hard water and soft water. There are lots of bars for lots of different types of hair, and best of all, solid shampoo tends to last a lot longer than bottled shampoos. They still lather well while cleaning hair and are a more environmentally friendly option. If you don't have time to lather up, then give dry shampoos a try. These formulas typically spray on and absorb excess oils, leaving shine and a clean scent behind. There are many brands on the market, so experiment with travel sizes to find one that works with your hair and budget. Some brands can be pricey, particularly those found in salons.
