So AA Skincare have launched a new range of eight solid shampoo bars made with natural ingredients and 100% pure essential oils and guess what – I love them to bits.
Most of you know by now that Mr. C and I have been ‘travelling‘ a lot this year and we haven’t always been staying in places that provide shampoo and other toiletries – AirBnB take note please! The AA Skincare solid shampoo bars are perfect for travel and apart from taking up hardly any space in your luggage, they also clean hair without stripping protective oils. It says on on the AA Skincare site that ‘each bar is a cocktail of specially blended anti-oxidant, mineral and vitamin rich natural ingredients – from Frankincense, Rose and Argan through Lavender, Rosemary and Avocado to Cinnamon, Peppermint and Bergamot.’ and who am I to contradict them?!
The good news is that like all other AA Skincare products the natural solid shampoo bars are free from parabens, preservatives and artificial fragrances which is one of the other reasons I like them so much. A 50g bar gives you twice as many washes as a 250ml bottle of liquid shampoo and only costs £5.95. Cheaper than LUSH in other words, which is a very clever move!
To use simply wet hair with warm water, rub shampoo bar between hands to create a luxurious, creamy foam – thanks to Coconut derived lathering ingredients – and massage into hair gently. Leave for a couple of minutes and rinse thoroughly and condition, if necessary. Leave bar to dry ready to use again. Simple hey!
The eight, solid shampoo bars are:
1. Botanical Boost Shampoo Bar – Frankincense, Rose & Argan Oil
Rejuvenating Frankincense and vitamin-rich Avocado oil help stimulate hair growth and calm skin and work together with anti-oxidant packed Argan oil and aromatic Rose oil to pep up flat, dull hair. Rose Geranium oil is added to the mix to strengthen hair, naturally. For all hair types.
2. Twilight Shampoo Bar – Cinnamon, Clove & Peppermint
Warming, uplifting and comforting to soothe dry scalps and strengthen hair. Mineral-rich Cinnamon and Clove essential oils stimulate circulation and encourage healthy hair growth. Calming Peppermint oil soothes, with extracts of Nettle working to strengthen and improve hair quality. Nourishing Coconut oil moisturises and conditioners, making hair more manageable. For dry hair.
3. Lifestyle Shampoo Bar – Lavender, Rosemary & Chamomile
This bar is a super herb blend featuring regenerative Lavender, aromatic Rosemary and enriching Chamomile to revitalise and restore dry, flaky scalps. Vitamin and mineral-rich coconut nourishes and conditions itchy hair. Regular massaging with this shampoo will help stimulate and nourish scalps, helping reduce any dandruff. For itchy, dry hair.
4. Illuminate Blonde Shampoo Bar – Geranium, Almond & Chamomile
This nutritious blend is great for dry hair. Omega 3-rich Almond oil gets to grips with weak follicles, encouraging growth and strength. Antioxidant-rich Geranium essential oil helps repair and rejuvenate damaged hair and works to strengthen and protect. Blended with Lemon peel oil and formulated to boost shine and condition. For dry and damaged hair.
5. Almond Shampoo Bar – Almond essential oil
Nourishing Almond oil is brilliant for hair that needs livening up. Bursting with vitamins A, D & E, this bar will help nurture damaged hair, adding condition and shine. Antioxidant rich to stimulate circulation in the scalp and encourage hair growth, it also features Omega 3 to strengthen follicles, leaving hair well hydrated and silky. Perfect for dry, dull and damaged hair.
6. Brilliantly Balancing – Lemon & Bergamot
Energising and uplifting, this cocktail of citrus fruits is amazing for hair health and growth. Purifying and balancing, Lemon and Bergamot essential oils work to reduce scalp build up and excess oil – adding shine and condition as well as soothing itchy skin and stimulating hair growth. Use regularly on greasy and oily hair.
7. Intense Coconut – 100% pure coconut oil
An intensely moisturising coconut shampoo bar which leaves your hair strong and healthy. Adds lustre, shine and softness as well as promoting scalp health and encouraging growth. Perfect for dry or damaged hair.
