Silk & Shine Shampoo Bar
£7.50 – £9.95
A gentle and sulphate-free shampoo bar for gorgeous shiny hair and a calm, hydrated scalp. With natural, gentle ingredients such as babassu oil for super-hydration and stronger hair, and a touch of panthenol for amazing moisturising, glossy results.
Comes wrapped in kraft paper that goes straight into the recycling or compost. 100g For all hair types.
Choose your type: original (with patchouli & eucalyptus) or sensitive (no essential oils)
You can pay by Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, credit card, direct bank transfer and Klarna (buy now, pay later).
A gentle and sulphate-free shampoo bar to help calm, hydrate and clean scalps, particularly sensitive ones. Suitable for all hair types, but particularly well suited for scalps that get sore and dry. With added silk for the most gorgeous, silky finish.
Comes wrapped in a single piece of kraft paper which can be composted or recycled, leaving you with zero waste. Another part of our 'Leave only Footprints' range.
These natural shampoo ingredients have been blended together to create a gentle, cleansing, soothing product, scented with just a touch of organic eucalyptus and patchouli - similar to the essential oil blend we use in Scratchy Balm and Scratchy Soap, but without the linalool.
Don't compromise on your hair - many shampoo bars leave hair feeling a little dull, but not this one. So ditch your plastic hair care products and give this a go.
More about the ingredients
Babassu Oil: light and does not cause build-up, easily rinsed away, but deeply conditioning. Also soothes the scalp, prevents dandruff and promotes healthy new hair growth. Improves hair's elasticity and strength, prevents breakage and split ends.
Patchouli: particularly effective for sore, dry, flaky scalps as it is anti-fungal and many dry scalps are caused by fungal skin. It repairs, cleans and tones the skin and helps skin to regenerate. It also helps to balance sebum production so is useful for balancing all hair types, including greasy hair.
Kaolin Clay: with a low pH, helps to remove build up and toxins from the scalp. Nourishes the scalp and unclogs hair follicles. Prevents tangling.
D-panthenol: very moisturising, prevents water loss, adds shine, softness and body to hair. Also keeps hair thick and strong.
Directions: wet hair, wet hands and rub bar several times to get a good lather, gently massage into scalp, rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary. Follow with Strengthen & Smooth Hair Oil.
Leave your bar somewhere to dry - we strongly recommend our wooden soap holders.

Happy customers love our shampoo bar:
"I've struggled with shampoo bars and they can leave your hair feeling weird and waxy but this one is absolutely perfect!"
"In a bid to further reduce my waste and having been so pleased with eye serum from LJ Natural. I decided to try this shampoo bar. My hair is long (past my shoulder blades) and very grey.(as a result quite dry) I also have psoriasis.This bar is wonderful! My hair is silky and shiny, the grey no longer looks like dried straw. My scalp is not flaky or sore. I wear my hair down most days now just because it looks fab. It took me a couple of attempts to get the hang of the bar. But Lisa was so helpful when I contacted her and she suggested more lather. It worked. It's super. Really easy to use. No need for conditioner (I used to have to condition with every wash) Hair looks great and only needs washing once a week instead of every 3 days. Zero waste and great hair what's not to love. Highly recommend."
For Cradle Cap:
"I wish I'd done a before pic so I could show you how much of a difference one use of the shampoo bar has made on my baby's head!! It was covered in cradle cap, big flakey mess, now look!! It's totally back to normal and he smells amazing."

As this shampoo is so gentle, you shouldn't need to follow with conditioner as it will not strip your hair of all its own natural oils. However, you can use a small amount of our Strengthen & Smooth Hair Oil on your damp hair, especially at the ends, to give you gorgeous, soft and naturally scented shiny hair.

I hugely recommend this beautifully scented shampoo bar. It’s soothing to rub it on my hair, then I massage my scalp , leave it on whilst I’m showering and enjoy the smell. I have curly grey hair and this bar suits it very well. It lasts for ages and I keep it in the lovely tin that Lisa sells too.

I switched to shampoo and conditioner bars a while ago. The initial reason was to reduce my use of plastic, but I was amazed at how much healthier and happier my hair is. I’ve tried several brands and always had to use a conditioner bar as well as the shampoo one. So I was sceptical when I read the reviews that said you didn’t need to with this soap. But they were right! I just use this shampoo bar and my hair looks and feels great, without the need for anything else. And whereas I used to wash my hair every 3 days, I’ve found I can go a week between washes now. I’ve no idea how it manages to be so effective at cleaning my hair, and yet so gentle and moisturising that I don’t need to use conditioner. This truly is a miracle product and I whole heartedly recommend it.

Very nice shampoo. Pleasant subtle aroma and leaves hair soft and healthy looking. As I have many proven allergies I have to be ultra careful about all the products I use so am pleased that tried this product and that it suits me.

Great product leaving my hair clean and without the need to use moisturiser. Also plastic and other nasties free.

Made the switch from bottles to this bar and very happy! It lavers really well, smells lovely and I don’t need to use conditioner. My fine hair feels full bodied and soft to touch. I would really recommend that you give it a try.

Love this shampoo! The scent is perfect for us boys as well as the girls in the family. It lathers beautifully so the bar should last for ages and only need a minimal amount of conditioner. Another bit of plastic removed from the bathroom, nice one LJ!
Lizzie Gough (verified owner) –
This is a really nice shampoo bar. It lathers up really well and I didn’t actually neer to use conditioner with it. It’s great to know that I won’t be throwing a plastic bottle away too.

Absolutely love this bar. Once got the hang of it my hair loved it. No more fizzy grey hair. No scalp psoriasis either. Made the switch to this bar 2years ago. Got bought other shampoo bars for birthday. Tried them all, didn’t love them. Bought my own lj bar and my hair and my scalp are very pleased. No need for extra conditioner bars. Hair is soft, not fizzy, shiny and scalp is happy.

I LOVE this shampoo, it doesn’t dry my hair out or make it frizzy. It has a lovely subtle aroma and it has a little foam so it’s easy to distribute in my hair. What’s not to love!
Elaine Care –
Stick with it – it’s so worth it. Yes, it feels very different at first, but honestly, once you get the hang of it you won’t look back. Soft, shiny, gorgeous natural scented hair, and best of all – Zero waste! My hair is grey/white, very thick with a slight kink, cut in a kind of a long “quiff” on top and cropped at the side, so I hope this helps

Definitely a convert! This shampoo bar is amazing. Lathers up really well and makes your hair feel and smell wonderful. Not needed any conditioner either.
What a fab product! Will be using this from now on!

I’ve been using my shampoo bar for a couple of weeks. It lathers up really well and it smells gorgeous. I spend a minute or so just massaging the lather into my hair and relaxing. Rinse very throughly and get a satisfying squeaky clean sound. I haven’t used any conditioner at all. I have fine hair and it looks great whether I leave it to dry on its own or blow dry. My hair feels soft and full of body.
