Shampoo bars are all-in-one bars and can be even used as soaps. You can safely use these bars while bathing. They don’t strip your hair dry, which is why you might not need to use a conditioner post wash. If needed, conditioner bars can also be used along with shampoo bars. 

More Natural 

They contain no artificial fragrance, colour, preservatives, detergents or alcohol. Shampoo bars don’t strip your hair off the essential oils. Chemical ridden shampoos rob your hair off the natural nutrients. You might need to use shampoo bars every 2-3 days but they will ensure that your hair retains its moisture throughout.
