Washing with anything that comes in bar form brings back memories of soaps that stripped skin of essential natural oils. Things are changing, however, and shampoo bars that won't leave your locks dry are all the more common. These seven recommendations are designed for hair that needs a bit of moisturising care. Shampoo bars not only cut out the annoying and often ugly plastic packaging of regular hair care products can last far longer than their conventional counterparts.
