WHICH BAR IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Moisturize Bars —Color safe, for thicker hair. For dry hair. For hair that typically needs extra conditioning. If your hair is more porous, alternate the Maintain Bar set. Corrects moisture deficiency and improves manageability. With coconut oil and rice protein to hydrate and nourish. Vegan.
Moisturize Fragrance-Free Bars — All of the formulations are subtle, however, sometimes no fragrance is best. Color safe and guaranteed to leave you with softy and silky hair.
Maintain Bars —Color safe, for normal hair. For people who wash their hair less frequently. For the gentle removal of product buildup. With honeyquat and shea butter for added shine. (Made with trace amounts of honey, so not vegan.
Volumize Bars —Color safe, for thin, fine or lifeless hair. Brings body and fullness without adding weight. Controls frizz and flyaway. With African dates and Vitamin B5 for added definition to curls and waves. Vegan.
Soothe Bars — Soothe will be for anyone having a scalp issue, from dandruff to psoriasis. Once cleared, use any formulation for your hair, and go back to Soothe as necessary. Color-safe, leaves hair soft and manageable, with white willow bark extract & Kukui nut oil to sooth itchy, flaky scalps.
Curly Hair? HiBAR recommends the Moisture Bar, however, some curly heads swear by mixing it up with Moisture Shampoo and Volumize Conditioner. Your call. WHAT DOES IT REPLACE? Big 16 oz. plastic bottles of expensive salon hair care products. HiBAR is plant-based and won't harm the water system, upstream or downstream. It's plastic-free. And because it's not a liquid soap, you're not shipping water across the nation or lugging big bottles home.
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF 1 HIBAR = 16 oz of liquid shampoo or conditioner
HiBAR sampler size minis = 1 oz
How to Shampoo: You can lather up in your hands and then into your hair or rub the angled side of HiBar on wet hair for a nice, all-over lather. Work into your hair and scalp. Rinse. How to Condition: Rub the angled side of the HiBar on wet hair. Gently work through your hair for a light, thorough coating. Wait a few minutes. Rinse.
Tips: Most people switch to HiBAR without any transition time. But for some, it can take a week or two for your scalp to adapt to the sulfate-free formulas.
There’s nothing wrong with mixing and matching products. For example, if you typically use the Volumize Bar, having a Maintain Bar on hand for an occasional deeper cleaning can work wonders.
Experiment with how often you wash. For example, sometimes, oily hair can be the result of TOO MUCH washing!
Once in a while, don’t shampoo at all, just use one of our conditioner bars. They each contain a tiny bit of surfactant, so they do have some cleaning capability, but not enough to interrupt with the conditioning process.
Remember – exfoliate! That is, when you’re washing, give your scalp a good massage with the tips of your fingers. This will clear your scalp of any dry skin or oily build up.
Store just like any bar soap, dry and away from direct water. It's designed to sit upright and shed water.
PACKAGING Zero-plastic packaging is recyclable and compostable. Printed with plant-based inks.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
We’ve all seen the depressing headlines. “Oceans predicted to have more plastic than fish by 2050.” And many of us have witnessed the mess first hand.
Well, a couple of years ago, four friends and fellow-optimists got talking one night and realized they’d all been working separately on the same project: getting rid of plastic in the bathroom.
So we officially banded together to re-engineer how people wash and care for their hair. After a lot of trial and error, working with a team of hair care professionals, HiBAR was born. Solid shampoos and conditioners that skip the need for plastic packaging. No plastic. Just beautiful hair. Huzzah! Plus it's made with love in Wisconsin.
Getting rid of plastic in your shower is one small step in the right direction. We hope you take it with us.
I've been using HiBar for almost a year. A bar lasts me 6 months or more (I do have short hair). I've tried both the moisturize and the volumize and for my hair, I prefer the moisturize. (My hair is medium fine with very little texture, so I was surprised the moisturize worked best). It took a couple of weeks to adjust to using a shampoo bar, but I wouldn't go back.
We've found that beyond hair type, the kind of water you have also plays a role. We also think that switching now and again between bars or adding a little apple cider vinegar can be helpful too. Thank you so much for writing in!
