I Tried Two Different Plastic-Free Shampoos

For the past couple of years, I have been on a crusade to do better for planet Earth. Lately, I’ve been looking at ways to buy less things that are packaged in plastic. For instance, plastic-free shampoos.

Note: This isn’t a sponsored review. I am genuinely giving my opinion on these products.

So are these bottle-less shampoos any good?

Well, I’ve so far tried out these two:

The ANSC Shampoo

I purchased this from an Australian online store, Flora and Fauna, who sell eco-friendly products. It cost AUD$10.

Pros: It came in a cardboard box, with no extra wrapping. Made in Australia!

Cons: It left a waxy residue in my hair, which could only be washed out with another shampoo. Awful!

Due to the terrible residue, it’s been relegated to a body soap. 😄 I will not be buying this product again.

Bar None Hydrating Shampoo

I found this at a local supermarket for AUD$16. A bit on the pricey side, but, with my little bit of disposable income, I can afford it. (Oh and since I have short hair, I can make shampoo go a long way. Haha.)

Pros: Makes my hair feel great! Smells like coconut ice! 😋 Also made in Australia.

Cons: Expensive.

Verdict – Will I continue to use plastic-free shampoos?

I will absolutely continue using Bar None, as long as it’s available.

I realise that many are likely to balk at the price – given that typical supermarket shampoo costs under $10. The thing to bear in mind with this, is that you should expect it to last a while. So let’s see how it goes!
