Climate change is real and everyone plays a role. With that in mind, many beauty brands are working to do their part to lessen their carbon footprint and reduce their negative contribution to the climate crisis. And, one of the most popular techniques thus far has been to ditch traditional packaging. We’ve seen it with brands like Hourglass and Kjaer Weis; Elate Cosmetics and Axiology. Nowadays, makeup brands aren’t the only heroes of the sustainable beauty landscape—hair care has a place, too. The problem is, more often than not, shampoo and conditioner bars often don’t perform as well as traditional bottled formulas. Of course, to every rule there’s an exception and in this case, it’s all about Odacité’s 552M Soap Free Shampoo Bar ($29).

Made with hydrating and shine-inducing coconut oil, cupuaçu butter, argan oil, and castor oil, Odacité’s Shampoo Bar is one of a kind. Best of all, it’s designed to rid hair of built-up dirt and grime, all without an ounce of soap in its formula. Simply massage it directly into damp strands, lather, and rinse like a normal shampoo. Sounds like too good to be true, right? According to shoppers at The Detox Market, that’s simply not the case.

“It’s so luxurious and cleanses without leaving any type of residue,” one shopper wrote.

“Shocked with how well this lathers and cleans,” another shopper exclaims. “I noticed my hair feeling thicker and healthier after just a couple of uses.”

“I’m so happy I took a chance on this shampoo bar,” someone else commented. “I really wanted to try it because I love that it reduces so much packaging waste but I was a little hesitant because of the price. Turns out this shampoo is amazing!! Took me a couple uses to figure out how to get a nice lather, but it cleans my hair well and my hair feels so soft after. It doesn’t leave any residue and I feel like my hair stays cleaner longer between washes.”

Point being: If you’ve been searching for a shampoo bar that really works—let alone one made without the harsh effects of soap—this is it.
