What Shampoo Bars are good for Blonde Hair?

If you have blonde hair, you’ll know that the STRUGGLE can be REAL when it comes to maintaining your colour!   Blonde is a gorgeous colour but it does require some maintenance and knowledge on how to correctly care for your colour.   Blondes can be really susceptible to unwanted brassy and yellowy tones as well as the potential dryness that occurs during the lightening process. 

At Organic Ministry, they have formulated a Shampoo and Conditioner Bar for blonde hair.   Not only will their Blonde Shampoo and Blonde Conditioner Bar maintain your colour, it’s also ultra lush and nourishing for the hair.

The superhero ingredients in the bars include Botanical Indigo, DL Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Wheat and Avocado Oil.

Botanical Indigo helps to tone unwanted orange brassiness from blonde and grey hair. Moisture rich and protein rich DL Panthenol and Hydrolyzed Wheat strengthen and de-tangle all hair types and lengths. Avocado Oil is extremely rich in oleic acid and monounsaturated fats. It is one of the few oils that can actually penetrate the hair shaft to smooth and moisturise. Avocado Oil also strengthens hair, preventing breakage.

All ingredients in the Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner Bars have been professionally formulated with natural and organic ingredients. This makes the range suitable for those who have allergies and sensitivities (always check with your stylist before using a new product if you have pre-existing allergies). 

As well as achieving salon quality results, you can also rest assured that the bars are environmentally friendly. The Blonde Shampoo Bars and Conditioner Bars are also suitable for vegans, formulated from sustainable ingredients and completely cruelty free!

The phytosterols in the oil promote moisture retention and absorption.

Ginsenoside in ginseng delivers useful nutrients to the hair roots, strengthening it and reducing loss. Liquorice Root also offers anti-fungal, antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that protect the scalp and hair from dandruff and other microbial infections which can cause hair loss.

Nettle is a great detoxifier and delivers multiple nutrient rich vitamins and minerals to the follicle.

Green Tea is nutrient rich in antioxidants and it’s the ultimate relief for a dry, itchy, flaky and oily scalp.

Not only is Detox ULTRA effective and nourishing to the hair and scalp, it smells incredible too! Think warm woody notes of bergamot & cedarwood.

How do I store my Shampoo Bars?

At Organic Ministry, we have formulated a range of Shampoo Bars and Conditioner Bars using natural and organic ingredients. 

In order to maximise the lifespan of your Shampoo and Conditioner Bars, it’s really important that they are stored correctly, particularly during warmer months or if you live in a humid climate. 

When it comes to storing your bar, we recommend storing it in a dry space, such as a soap dish or the reusable bags which the bars come with. 

Due to the organic and natural nature of the products the bars have been formulated with, if they are exposed to high temperatures, direct sunlight, heat lamps or high humidity for extended periods of time, they can become soft and even melt to a liquid form. Hence it is vital that they are stored in a dry spot away from direct sunlight and heat.

When stored correctly, Shampoo and Conditioner Bars will last approximately 30 washes!
