I’m no skin guru, but I have found the magical recipe to keep my locks in check. The best part? I’ve made it just a wee bit better for the planet by cutting some plastic out of my hair routine. How do you ask? Shampoo and conditioner bars, baby.

My hair is a pink, purple, blue-tipped mess most days. When I wash it with my favorite Lush products, I tame it—and feel better for skipping the plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles most people love. I’ve played around with sustainable make-up and still haven’t committed to that, but my hair routine is set. Shampoo and conditioner bars aren’t for everyone, but they’re worth trying. They sure work for me. Shoot, my man even likes them.

I don’t go out much these days, but at least my hair routine keeps my hair fresh and healthy so that I’m ready for the moment I can finally strut the goodies. Check out the video above to see how I reduce my burden to the planet while keeping my hair so fresh and so clean.

I have been looking around at bar shampoo/conditioners. I’d love to hear about people’s experience with it- especially if they have colored or fine/thin hair.
