Aloe vera is a great natural hair moisturiser and because of that this plastic free shampoo works best on normal to dry hair types. The guys at ZWP are super clever and used aloe vera juice instead of distilled water in the lye solution when producing these bars. It might have tones of aloe vera juice, but it's unscented. This plastic free shampoo is perfect for natural hair nourishment. The best thing about ZWP shampoo is that you don't need to use a conditioner.
Tip: store on a soap dish when not in use so it lasts longer.

HOW LONG WILL THIS SHAMPOO BAR LAST?
For those who have used plastic free shampoo bars before, it all depends on how often you use the product. But for those who haven't used natural ingredient and plastic free shampoo bars, your hair will become less reliant on constant washing because of the lack of chemicals. This means, from personal use, a shampoo bar can last us three months even when two people are using it.
