ONE Solid Shampoo Bar and Natural Solid Conditioner
It takes no more than one incident of spillage to learn to never ever pack liquid products without some sort of zip lock/plastic bag casing. Fortunately, ONE offers products that entirely circumvent such tricky packing scenarios in the form of shampoo and conditioner bars.
ONE Solid Shampoo Bar (scent: Hair Biscuit) is highly reminiscent of scents otherwise found at cult-fave beauty provider, LUSH. However, unlike LUSH, it is wallet-friendly and not quite as overpowering in scent. Hair Biscuit is refreshingly floral. It comes in a tin carrier, but buyers must beware: attempting to open said tin when one’s hands have been at all exposed to moisture (i.e., water such as that found in most showers) is a dangerous matter. I pried it open with a hair pin, in a rather “don’t-try-this-at-home” way. In other words, open tin, then enter shower. Upon mastering the prying-open process, the bar turned out to result in a surprisingly sudsy, authentic shampoo experience.
ONE Solid Conditioner (Hair Boost) is not nearly as powerful a scent as its counterpart, nor does it come in a handy-dandy tin (thank goodness, almost). So long as users don’t mistake it for bar soap, all should be fine, which may not be so easy for users whose navigating skills are as sharp as this reviewers is pre-coffee (that is, not sharp at all). Unlike liquid conditioner, it’s not so inclined to detangle, and takes several “rubs” to cover an entire head of hair, but ultimate results prove favorable.
Both bars come in recyclable packaging and claim to contain as much product as three 8-ounce bottles of their respective liquid counterparts. Earth-friendly and hair-friendly, I suppose there is just one product line to pick up next time you’re in the market for spill-free, eco-approved hair care.
