Rosewater & Jasmine (co-starring Peony, Dewy Greens, & Musk): DIP says "If you have ever walked through an English Garden at the very height of rose season, and thought, this is heaven--this one's for you. It gives us Secret Garden vibes without the sad backstory." Select your size ( 1 ounce mini or 4 ounce full size) from the drop down menu. Scroll down to the bottom for a full ingredient list.
Michael & Brianna finally found a plastic-free haircare brand that really works without being ridiculously expensive per use: Dip. Why Dip? First of all, because the the owner Kate is hilarious, but also see below:
WORKS ON ALL HAIR TYPES: Whether you’re type 1A or 4C, this bar is for you! Especially formulated and tested for all hair textures. Got a splotchy hair history? No worries: this is great for colored and compromised hair types. We have a diverse coven & we didn't stop testing low waste haircare until we found a brand that we were confident would work for all of us without giving us all sticker shock at the price tag.
LONG LASTING: The Dip shampoo bar is the first of its kind & is truly magic: the LESS you press, the MORE luxurious the lather; resulting in less fear of breakage, less waste, & a much longer lasting bar. Store in a well draining soap dish for the longest shelf life. Our first full size shampoo bar lasted us 6 weeks with Michael washing his super long hair 6 days a week & Brianna double shampooing their shoulder length hair twice a week. Michael is about about halfway through his mini after a month of almost daily use & the full size conditioner bar looks like we've hardly used it even after 2 months (the full size conditioner bars are rumored to last about a year each).
THE FORMULA: Dip's vegan shampoo bars are full of scalp nourishing ingredients that are known to help regrowth & shedding. They also added some ingredients that really upped the scalp-game & encourage re-growth. Say hello to DIP's invigorating mix of green tea, ceramides, passion fruit oil, alma oil, and more! Brianna (who used to be a hair model for the Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica) is super picky about haircare & allergic to everything, so trust us when we say that the entire DIP line is salon quality.
TRULY PLANET FRIENDLY: The formula is vegan, the bars are long lasting, the packaging is backyard compostable (run through a paper shredder to speed up the process), the formulas are a blend of natural essential oils for their haircare benefits & synthetic fragrances for their lower impact on the environment, & these have a lower carbon footprint for shipping because they are concentrated bars.
SO HOW DO I USE THIS THING?
- Before first use, prime the bar by lathering in your hands and sudsing it up! (not necessary after the first use)
- Wet your hair then wet your solid shampoo bar.
- Gently rub the bar directly on the scalp and use your hands to lather as you would liquid shampoo. A common mistake is applying a lot of pressure on the bar, it just needs to gently graze the hair to work!
- Rinse out and follow with the conditioner bar.
- Store in a well draining soap dish & allow to dry out in between uses.
