We love this question because the simple answer is no. But we want to talk to you about why and what makes Solibar so different.
The biggest difference between Solibar and other shampoo options is the lack of sulphates or parabens. Without sulphates, there is going to be no stripping of your natural sebum. Traditional shampoo is designed to strip your hair of moisture, dirt and oil and hence requiring a conditioner to return the moisture post-shampoo.
Sebum is created by your sebaceous glands to enable your skin to retain moisture. But in your hair, it can be incredibly frustrating and can turn a good hair day into a bad hair day. We've all been there. We need sebum in order to keep our skin hydrated. It's a crucial part of the cleansing and protection process and it's the way nature intended it to be. So let's talk about how Solibar can help you to regulate your sebum production.
We often get asked about which hair type suits which Solibar, and the truth is they're all quite similar. (And using a Solibar is a new way of washing - read more). This is because they all have the same base ingredients like Olive, Coconut and Castor Oil + Shea Butter. The differences in the Solibars lie in the super ingredients + the scent. Which is why our Bundle o' Bars is the best seller in our store, why have one when you can have all three?
So what do our Solibars have to do with the 'No-Poo Method'? We’re glad you asked.
The big difference with Solibar, other shampoo bars and some liquid shampoos is the absence of those nasty ingredients like SLS, Parabens or Isopropyl Alcohol. (Read more) These ingredients are great for cleaning, but in their greatness they also strip your hair if it’s own natural oil (sebum) production and moisture. This leaves you with no option but to restore moisture with a conditioner.
