Biovène solid Shampoo and Conditioner Bars

Spanish eco brand Biovène Barcelona launched its all-natural plastic-free Shampoo-In-A Bar range in the UK back in January and I’ve been using them for some time now.Biovène solid Shampoo and Conditioner Bars
As part of its #replacethebottle campaigns the Biovène Barcelona shampoo and conditioning bars use natural ingredients including essential oils which are gentle enough to be used daily. The shampoo and conditioners  are available in five variant which include:
  • Hydrate Repair, 
  • Damage Control, 
  • Moisture Volume, 
  • Clear Protect
  • Nourish Restore.
So depending on how you would describe your hair type, there is something that you can use.

I have a shampoo and conditioner bar from two of the ranges which I have been using on my hair. The first is the Hydrate Repair Argan Oil & Mint includes natural argan oil, peppermint, macadamia oil, beeswax and shea butter. Not only has it been designed to recover shine and softness with optimal hydration the blend also works to combat hair loss, maintain a healthy scalp and repair hair damaged by colour and styling.

The conditioner-in-a-bar format replaces the need for a plastic bottle, contains no water, and can last as long as one and a half (1½) bottles of liquid conditioner. 

The shampoo and conditioner bars are both square shaped and to use wet both your hair and the shampoo bar. Slide the bar from root to tip 3-5 times. Putting the bar to one side, lather the shampoo into your hair. With the conditioner, after shampooing, rinse your hair and smooth the bar over your wet hair. Distribute evenly and leave for 1-5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. 

The second collection I have been using is the Nourish Restore shampoo and conditioner and it is perfect for those of us who teeter towards the oilier side of the hair issues. Pink Heaven, as the collection is called, using a blend of beeswax, shea butter, minerals, vanilla and the essential oils of lavender and grapefruit to smooth, soften and restore hair while deeply cleansing and refreshing. It aims to remove build-up and nourish every strand for stronger, healthier hair.

It foams like a liquid shampoo and can be worked on the hair and scalp really easily. That’s something that I missed in other solid shampoos, honestly.

  • Waterless
  • Biodegradable
  • Environmentally conscious
  • Soap-free

They are priced at £5.99 each and come in eco-friendly packaging and as part of the launch the brand will be committing to projects such as beach clean-ups, not just in Barcelona, but worldwide.
