No matter your hair type, using a moisturizing shampoo is a helpful part of your haircare routine. Shampoo bars can be a great way to include moisturizing haircare products in your routine while you also use less plastic. Shampoo bars might be made with less water than a traditional liquid shampoo, and they still provide the moisture-rich benefits your hair craves.

Take a look at common traits moisturizing shampoos share as well as tips to make the moisture-rich formula in your shampoo last by using a shampoo bar designed to boost and lock in moisture.

What Makes Up a Good Moisturizing Shampoo?

A good moisturizing shampoo has many benefits, including:

  • Helathy scalp and hair

  • Keeps hair soft and smooth

  • Improves definition and volume

Ingredients to look for in a good moisturizing shampoo include natural butters and oils such as argan oil, shea butter and jojoba oil.

Tips to Preserve Moisture in Shampoo Bars

In order to make the most of your moisture-rich shampoo bar, you have to use it the right way. Here are some tips for keeping your shampoo bar in good shape so that you are able to extend its usefulness.

How to Properly Use a Shampoo Bar

In order to make your shampoo bar last longer, it’s important to use it properly. Since it’s made with less water, you will need to activate its moisture-rich formula with water. If you’re using your shampoo bar while traveling, bring smaller pieces of it on the road or to the gym by shaving off some slivers. This enables you to use less of it while still making the most of its properties in your haircare routine.

If you are bringing the whole bar with you or are at home, apply water to the shampoo bar to create a lather, then remove it from the water so that you avoid washing it down the drain and wasting it.

How to Properly Store a Shampoo Bar

Storing a shampoo bar can help you make the most of its nourishing formula. A mesh or string bag can be useful not only for storing, but while using the shampoo bar as well. Be sure to hang your bag in a dry place outside of the shower so the shampoo bar dries. Leaving it in a soap dish or a moist area might cause the shampoo bar to melt, wasting your precious haircare resource.
