Reducing Plastic Waste - Tip of the Month!
Each month we are aiming to bring you a new and interesting tip to reduce plastic waste in your home. This October Tammi, our clean ocean campaigner, has this one for you:
Earlier this month I finally made the swap to Shampoo Bars, after being a little skeptical (I suffer from dry hair that needs a lot of moisture) I made the switch and am really pleased with the results.
The shampoo bars are really easy to use, you can either lather the bar in your hands and apply to wet hair, or directly rub the shampoo bar over your hair and then massage in with your fingers.
The first time I used my shampoo bar my hair felt a little dry once I had rinsed it out, but this is completely normal, as your hair needs time to adjust to the all natural ingredients. After the second wash my hair was feeling almost normal, and just this morning I washed it once more and my hair has never felt better! No more plastic bottles for me.
This is an awesome switch, I can't recommend it enough! Not only will you be protecting our oceans from plastic, but its better for your hair and in the long run you'll be saving yourself money.
