Biodegradable Shampoo: The Future of Sustainable Hair Care

Plastic seems to have taken over our lives. In our everyday bathroom routine, we use shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, toothpaste and moisturizer. Besides being personal hygiene products, they all have plastic in common!

Shampoo bottles are made of High-Density Polyethylene. For every shampoo bottle you use, it takes at least 450 - 1000 years to decompose. But, you haven't even heard the worst part yet! This type of plastic never fully biodegrades. Shampoo bottles eventually break down into tiny bits and pieces of plastic. Now, that doesn't sound like much of an improvement at all.

But you can put an end to this! Join the movement to go plastic-free. You don't have to do anything too crazy. Just take a look at your bathroom and see how much plastic you can eliminate. Start with the simple stuff, like biodegradable shampoo bars!

What is Plastic Free Shampoo?

Plastic-free shampoo reinvents your hair care routine in a way that is fun and sustainable. But the best part is you never have to compromise quality. Ditch the bottle, not your standards!

We're all worried about using the right stuff to prevent hair loss and damage. Biodegradable shampoo is made with all-natural ingredients that will keep your hair healthy and clean. So you can stop worrying about the harsh chemicals that come with traditional shampoo.

You've probably already guessed this part but, plastic-free shampoo is amazing for the environment. By going zero waste, you minimize pollution and your carbon footprint . At the end of the day, we all want to do what we can to help sustain our planet.

You can make a sustainable switch by trying out Wellow's biodegradable shampoo bars. Help your hair and the environment flourish one wash at a time! 

How does Biodegradable Shampoo Work?

We hear the word biodegradable, making headlines in every eco-friendly magazine. But, you're probably wondering what makes a shampoo biodegradable. We wanted to make it easy for you to understand what your products do and how they work.

Biodegradable shampoo breaks down quickly with the help of living organisms, like bacteria. This type of shampoo decomposes into natural elements that can later be reused. But it gets better! As the shampoo decays, no toxins are introduced into the environment or released into the soil. 

Unfortunately, most shampoos that you see in beauty stores are encased in a plastic bottle. This plastic is non-biodegradable, clutters our landfills and harms the environment.

But luckily, you have a choice! You can help sustain the planet by using healthy products on your hair that minimize harm to the environment. Wellow uses clean and natural ingredients to ensure that our shampoo bars are biodegradable and plastic-free. So you never have to worry about plastic piling up in landfills.

Why Transition to Biodegradable Shampoo Bars?

From our healthy roots to shining tips, we all have our favourite hair care routine. But why not do it sustainably? Upgrading to a plastic-free shampoo just makes sense! We've compiled a list of reasons why you should switch to biodegradable shampoo bars and never look back.

1. Clean Ingredients

Natural shampoo is packed with clean ingredients that keep your hair feeling soft and beautiful. It's time to stop using those harsh chemicals and toxins on your hair that comes with traditional shampoo. Using natural shampoo will help you regain pH balance without drying out or damaging your hair.

2. Plastic-Free

Why use plastic when you can go plastic-free? The plastic you throw ends up in landfills and oceans, never biodegrading. To put it simply, using plastic hurts our ecosystems. We're harming soil, water, air, animals, crops and ourselves! Ditch your plastic shampoo bottle and join our mission to protect and conserve our planet.

3. Inclusive of All Hair Types

Tired of buying a shampoo specifically for men, women and kids? Or maybe you have thick or frizzy hair and can never seem to find the perfect match. Look no further. Natural shampoo fits all your needs. Using biodegradable shampoo won't leave your hair looking oily, dry, itchy or rough from synthetic chemicals in conventional shampoo.

With the perfect blend of natural ingredients, you will find a non-irritating shampoo that works wonders for your scalp. Let biodegradable shampoos help you avoid the horrors of bad hair days!

4. Bon Voyage Sustainably

Struggling to fit everything in our suitcase before a big trip is a common problem. Luckily, biodegradable shampoo bars are travel friendly. No liquid means no travel hassles. Due to their small size and packaging, you can easily fit them into any compartment of your suitcase. You can now avoid the chunky shape and size of traditional shampoo!

5. Long Lasting

A common concern in households is how fast shampoo runs out. It's even more worrisome for people with long hair, like me! However, biodegradable shampoo bars last longer than traditional shampoo. One of Wellow's shampoo bars is equivalent to 2 or 3 regular bottles of shampoo. Now you can live sustainably and save money while you're at it!

Shampoo Bars Are Packed With Natural Ingredients

The natural ingredients packed into our biodegradable shampoo bars help nourish and hydrate your hair. At Wellow, we use easy-to-understand ingredients so that you know exactly what you're using on your hair. Here's some of the good stuff we use in our plastic-free shampoo.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil in our biodegradable shampoo bars helps smooth and add shine to all hair types. So for all the frizzy hairs out there, we've got your back! This ingredient is excellent for growing your hair thick, long, and fast. Not to mention, it's great for detangling!

Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is an ultra-moisturizing natural conditioner that restores dull and damaged hair. This ingredient has soothing properties that allow it to penetrate deep into your hair follicles for hydration.

Sodium Coco Sulfate

Sodium Coco Sulfate creates a lush foam that is used to cleanse your hair and give it that healthy shine look. It's involved in the deep-cleaning process and rids your hair of any grime, dirt and grease.

Vitamin B5

Vitamin B5 leaves your hair feeling silky smooth and healthy. This special ingredient works alongside other essential nutrients to stimulate hair growth. It works to protect and rebuild damaged hair from heat and synthetic chemicals.

Our biodegradable shampoo bars contain a mixture of ingredients that help balance the oil production in your scalp. This avoids your hair from feeling oily or greasy.

Made with 100% Plant-Based Packaging

We want our plastic-free shampoo to leave no trace behind. We use bars, which means less mess, zero waste and no hassle. But we also put lots of care into creating sustainable packaging.

Eco-friendly packaging can come in a variety of different styles. You can have plastic free shampoo that comes in glass bottles. You could alternatively use refillable bottles for shampoo. Another packaging option can be a reusable cloth bag for shampoo bars.

At Wellow, we believe packaging is just as important as the rest of the product. We have created a small, travel-friendly box that can be transported or recycled. It even works great to store your dry shampoo bar when you're not using it.
