I think most people these days are trying to be more environmentally friendly and well, if you’re not, then you should be. I even did a blog post a while ago on how to be more environmentally friendly and what affordable swaps you could make, which you can read here. One of the things I’ve been wanting to switch to using is a shampoo bar, but I just haven’t found one that works for me. So when I found out that Alberto Balsam have released their own affordable shampoo bars, I was definitely interested in trying them and doing a review on here, especially considering they’re only £2.50-£3 each depending where you shop and available at places such as Asda, Tesco and B&M. They're also completely plastic free and you can get up to 70% more washes than what you would get from a normal shampoo bottle! 

The Alberto Balsam Shampoo Bars contain 92% natural origin ingredients, such as argan oil and natural essential oils and they have three different scents available Coconut & Lychee, Juicy Green Apple and Sunkissed Raspberry. I received the Sunkissed Raspberry* bar to try and it smells so nice!

The main problem I've found with the shampoo bars I've tried over the past couple of years is that I find that they feel like they almost strip my hair from all of the ‘good oils’ and I’ve even found that my hair dye, particularly on my roots sometimes fades a lot quicker when using a shampoo bar. 

However the Alberto Balsam shampoo bar lathers up really easily in your hands so you can really get in there and get your hair all suddy but because of the added oils, it doesn’t leave your hair feeling stripped after use. I also found that my hair dye doesn’t seem to fade after use and the lovely scent lingers in your hair which is a nice added bonus too. 

Overall, I’m really happy to have discovered the new Alberto Balsam shampoo bars, I definitely feel like they work well and I love that they are super affordable and easy to pick up. 

Have you tried a shampoo bar before?

  3. I love using shampoo bars & it’s great to see they’re becoming more affordable! £2.50-£3 is a great price point considering they last so long - great move from Alberto Balsam :) x

  4. This sounds great! I'm similar to yourself though, the ones I've tried before have always left my hair feeling super dry and straw like with very little moisture. This sounds lovely though, I'll have to keep an eye out. X

  5. Been seeing shampoo bars everywhere lately, definitely want to try one out! x
