Best Shampoo Ever?? Plastic Free, Vegan and Natural, feat. Natural Wisdom Spa

september 30, 2018

Hi my lovelies! How are you all feeling about shampoo bars? Ever tried them? What are you using to wash your hair? Gone are the days when natural and organic shampoos wouldn't lather and wash the hair really and truly properly. We now have so many wonderful shampoos made with beautiful ingredients but for me it was still something missing. And that was a perfect solid shampoo bar. You guys, it looks like I finally found it!

 I dabbled into the world of natural solid shampoo bars a few years ago but my experience with them wasn't that great. My hair were left greasy, heavy, with lots of shampoo residue, no matter how much I rinsed it off. They were never good enough to repurchase them and I usually end up using them as body wash. For a while I was going back and forth, from liquid shampoo to shampoo bars. I liked some of them but was never really 100% sold on them. And then I tried Natural Wisdom Spa Shampoo & Body Wash. Oh my word, I love thee so! I have seen this brand prior to buying from them on Instagram. Some of my fellow bloggers and friends talked about this brand and their products, always raving about them. In spring I met with the lovely Mirna from @green_aboveandbeyond and she was yet again talking about this brand. It's safe to say she is in love. She was talking about their Vitamin C Antioxidant Treatment Gel and Vitamin C Facial Moisturizer with such passion and ever since then I have these two products on my WL. But what really intrigued me were their shampoo & conditioner bars. She has just washed her hair with them and she was like "touch my hair, they are so soft!" That I did and she was right! I ordered the bar quickly after and the rest is as they say , history. I'm so dramatic haha but when you're on a mission to find that perfect shampoo with natural ingredients that isn't in plastic packaging, you would be extatic too.

Natural Wisdom Spa is a UK brand founded by Maeve Smith, a Homeopath and natural health mentor since 2005. Maeve has also studied Pathology and Disease, Anatomy and Physiology, Nutrition and Herbal Medicine as well as bio-chemistry and natural skincare formulation. Natural Wisdom Spa is described as "an artisan skincare brand that dares to be different." Their products are handcrafted in small batches, they are raw, alcohol & gluten free. They use potent, vibrant, active ingredients, premium certified organic ingredients are always a priority and they also use CO2 extracted raw seed oils, herbal and botanical extracts. I love all that but what really makes a brand truly special to me is their care for animals and the environment. Natural Wisdom Spa is vegan & cruelty free and they intentionally chose Miron violet glass bottles and jars, not only because they better protect the potency and freshness of their products than clear or brown glass, but also because glass is easily recyclable and reusable. They use a minimal amount of plastic and I truly appreciate that. Thank you for caring, Maeve.

Natural Wisdom Shampoo & Body Washes are made from 100% natural, vegan, Ecocert & COSMOS accredited ingredients that are readily biodegradable. Quick google search tells me that "readily biodegradable" ingredients are those that have "the natural ability to biodegrade to their natural state, when subjected to sunlight, water and microbial activity, from 60-100% in 28 days". You can check out the complete ingredient list here but among other things they contain Spirulina, Apple Cider Vinegar, Shea Butter. They are scented with Grapefruit and Lemongrass. I quite like the citrus scent. When I first tried this Shampoo Bar it actually came together with the Conditioner - it was a two in one type of product, but now it is only available separately. You can pick between a smaller 50 g bar or a regular 100 g one. See all the options here.

Why is this shampoo so good?

First off it lathers like crazy! It gives a gorgeous silky lather, and cleanses my hair very thoroughly yet it is not stripping or drying at all. If you have ever used a solid shampoo bar on long hair then you may be aware that the feeling of dry hair after rinsing is normal, but normal doesn't mean it's good. The other problem I had with shampoo bars in general was the feeling of waxy hair. I hated my hair when they were freshly washed and they looked fine but they felt horrible. It was like the shampoo was still in my hair, and it didn't matter if I quickly rinsed my hair or took my time and really thoroughly rinsed them. The feeling was pretty much always there. But with this shampoo it's completely different. My hair are truly and properly clean, they are smooth and lovely. Well I do always use the matching conditioner as well, which I really love too, and that helps with the smoothness and softness of my hair. I adore this shampoo and I highly recommend it. You can get it here. And their Solid Conditoner and Shaving Bar too.

How I use it?

I use it on wet hair and you could rub it between your hands and create lather that way but I usually take the easy route and I simply rub it directly onto the hair. You do use a bit more that way but I actually don't care because I just prefer to use it that way. I especially love doing this when I use an oil hair treatment before washing. Currently I'm using the gorgeous Prim Botanicals The Hair Oil** from a previous Art of Organics Clean Beauty Box** (review here). The shampoo gently but very effectively removes everything and that makes me so happy. It just works!

The Natural Wisdom Spa Solid Shampoo & Body Wash Bar is vegan, handmade, natural and what really drawn me in is the fact that it is completely plastic free. Yes, yes, yes! I'm obsessed and I urge you to try it out too.

You can either get it at their website (see here) or via their Etsy shop here.
