Shampoo Bar Myths & Facts

Shampoo bars are fast becoming renowned as one of the simplest and easiest ways to do your bit for the environment. Our brand new All Lathered Up Cleansing Shampoo Bar is 100% plastic free, SLS/SLES free, silicone free, gluten free and vegan friendly, helping you to make an eco friendly change to your everyday beauty regime whilst also providing salon-approved healthy hair results. It’s a win win! As shampoo bars are such an innovative product, there are many myths shrouding this mysterious new product form, so we at Percy & Reed are here to help debunk the biggest myths and answer any questions you may have about our new All Lathered Up Cleansing Shampoo Bar- so let’s get to the bottom of this!


  1.  Shampoo bars don’t lather

We can say for certain, this is not the case! Unlike many shampoo bars currently on the market, our All Lathered Up Cleansing Shampoo Bar is superbly suds-ilicious and lathers as well if not better than your average bottled shampoo. Our All Lathered Up Cleansing Shampoo Bar could not be easier to use, simply wet your hair and the bar and gently circle over the hair once or twice depending on your hair length. Massage the lather from the roots to the ends of the hair, rinse thoroughly and follow with your favourite conditioner and be prepared for stunning results!

  1. They won’t last as long as regular shampoo, it will be more expensive to switch

Absolutely not! Not only will switching to a shampoo bar improve your relationship with the environment, but also with your bank balance! Due to its high lather properties, a little really goes a long way with this product. Our All Lathered Up Cleansing Shampoo Bar can last up to 50 hair washes, surpassing most bottled shampoos which on average last 25-35 - the shampoo bar may be small but it is mighty! If you want to take that first step towards a more waste free, environmentally friendly hair care routine, this is the product for you!


  1. My shampoo bottle packaging is recyclable, how is a bar better for the environment?

Although we have improved the packaging of our bottled shampoos to be fully recyclable (and are on a journey towards as much of our packaging being fully recyclable) this new product really raises the “bar” when it comes to clean beauty (pardon the pun, we couldn’t resist!). Did you know that by switching to this zero waste shampoo bar you are helping to save up to 80g of plastic versus a bottled shampoo, which equates to over half a kilo per year, significantly reducing your personal use of plastic and supporting Percy & Reed’s sustainability efforts.

  1. A shampoo bar will be difficult to store compared to bottled shampoo

Once again this is false! If you are used to using traditional bottled shampoo, you may be wondering how a packaging free product stays fresh and ready to use? Well we have some good news, it is a lot simpler than you may think! After use, shampoo bars need to dry out, and so for a limited time only we are offering a free bamboo tray as a gift when you buy an All Lathered Up Cleansing Shampoo Bar. Problem solved! This tray will help your bar to fully dry and be ready for its next use (we really have thought of everything haven’t we!).

  1. I won’t get the same great hair results using a Shampoo Bar

At Percy & Reed our mission is to be as “clean beauty” as we possibly can without sacrificing the salon-worthy results you know and love! Our All Lathered Up Cleansing Shampoo Bar is no exception to this. It is packed with nourishing ingredients, including moisturising vitamin E and conditioning avocado oil, so that hair is not only cleansed but cared for. This shampoo bar leaves zero residue, so your hair is oh-so shiny and grease free for days! We have infused our All Lathered Up Cleansing Shampoo Bar with our signature ‘A Walk Through the Meadow’ fragrance. Zesty top notes of red cherry, lemon and lime, are layered above softer floral heart notes, and finished with warm amber base notes. Your hair is left not only clean and super shiny, but smelling divine. What more could you ask for!
