Just getting started? Here’s how we use a Shampoo Bar

The simplest way to use a shampoo bar is to wet your hair first, then swipe your shampoo bar over your scalp a couple of times. Return your shampoo bar straight back to your Block Dock, limiting the bar’s contact with water spray. Then massage the shampoo into your hair as you normally would and rinse out.

Really, it’s easier and faster than using a bottle. Plus, you can’t spill a bar!

Some shampoo bar users prefer to rub the bar in their hands, making a good lather and then work this through their hair. This method also works. Depending on your hair type it may lead to a result you prefer. It’s easy to try both ways and see which works best for your hair.

Rubbing the bar directly over your head will use likely less product per shampoo, especially if your storage is a Block Dock.

If your hair is very long or thick, you may need to use more product and perhaps run the bar the length of your hair, but for most people a quick rub over the top of your head is enough. With massage you will create plenty of lather. You may need to adjust your technique on the basis of your choice of shampoo bar as they can vary in performance. Like most of life, there can be some trial and error involved in finding your personal sweet spot.

To ensure your shampoo bar lasts as long as possible you will want to make sure it stays out of direct water spray as much as possible and never sits in a puddle. You will want storage that allows it to drain quickly and dry fast. A dry shampoo bar or soap is going to be easier to handle, which improves your user experience considerably. Limiting moisture will make your bar last longer.

Leaving your shampoo bar lying down in a flat soap dish, saucer or similar will mean that one large surface can’t help but stay moist where there is no airflow or absorption.

When it comes time to use your bar, more product will be dispersed during friction when a bar is soft or soggy on the surface.

Because shampoo bars are concentrated products made without water, you only need a small amount for each use. When the shampoo is activated by the water already on your hair when its wet, you should get lather enough for your locks - depending on your choice of bar. They are not all made the same and some are better for one hair type than another. You really won’t know until you try for yourself.

What all shampoo bars for hair have in common is that they all save plastic bottles from reaching our waste streams and waterways. Even if it takes a few tries to find your perfect bar and technique, it’s definitely going to be worth it!

Block docks

I bought two of these on recommendation from a friend and find they are great. Keep your soap nice & dry and out of the way

Small Steps

My daughter and I are taking small steps to reduce our waste and have been trying shampoo blocks. We both had trouble with the mush and sogginess of using our existing shower storage. Block Docks have changed that, we love the difference they are making. We also travel a lot and the super travel set was a good fit. There is also enough room in the tin to add extra items when we travel which is great. Think we will be ordering more block docks in future as we try to convert the men in our lives.

What a great little product!

It’s a good design, I’m using shampoo and conditioner bars most days and needed extra room for all the bars! This is perfect! The suction cup is a strong little sucker and hasn’t failed yet!!

Pleasantly surprised!

I was a bit unsure about whether or not these soap holders would be worth the money but thought I'd give it a try. I was super happy with the first one and have since bought 2 more! They are so good at keeping bars from going gross and soggy (which means they last soooo much longer!), plus they look pretty cute on the shower wall.

Excellent Product

Super stoked with our block docks over here on the other side of the ditch. Pure awesome Kiwi Genius!

Cheers
