It’s estimated that the equivalent of one garbage truck full of plastic is dumped into the ocean every minute. Swapping your go-to bottled shampoo and conditioner for packaging-free bars is an easy way to cut down on plastic waste. A single palm-sized bar can last up to 80 washes, and thanks to eco-conscious brands that have created solid formulas for every conceivable issue—from oily roots to parched ends—you don’t have to give up good hair days either. Scroll down to browse a few of our favourite options, including a volumizing duo and a luxe soap-free option.
