Wait, you still use shampoo bottles…? Kidding, but also not, since shampoo bars (aka shampoo packed down in the form of a bar) are having an actual moment RN. They may sound weird if you’ve never used one before, but shampoo bars are actually quite simple: All you do is rub the bar over your roots and hair, and gently massage and lather as you would any normal cleanser. And not only are they great traveling companions (seriously—no more spilling all over your toiletry bag), but shampoo bars are also a super eco-friendly approach to beauty. They can last up to 80 washes, which equates to three-ish bottles of shampoo, so they’re not a bad idea if you’re trying to cut down on waste. Convinced? Though so. Keep reading for the 13 best shampoo bars of all time.

Best Shampoo Bar for Dry Scalp
Obia Naturals Neem and Tea Tree Shampoo Bar
Neem and tea tree oils are the hero ingredients in this shampoo bar from Obia Naturals, both of which work to hydrate and soothe dry, flaky scalps. It’s also great for gently removing buildup (think: styling products and excess oil) without stripping your hair dry.
Best Volumizing Shampoo Bar
HiBar Volumize Shampoo Bar
If you’re a looking for a shampoo bar that’ll blast your fine hair with volume, you can’t go wrong with this cutely packaged formula from HiBar. Instead of drying and damaging ingredients like parabens, sulfates, and silicones, this formula is spiked with African dates (which promote circulation) and vitamin B5 (which smooths).
Best Clarifying Shampoo Bar
Bask & Bloom Rhassoul and Bentonite Clay Shampoo Bar
This shampoo bar is formulated with two types of clay—rhassoul and bentonite—to gently (but v effectively) clarify your scalp. It’s a little bit too drying for everyday use, so lather up with this bb when your hair is feeling weighed down with oil, products, or grime.
Best Giftable Shampoo Bar
Daughter of the Land Hair & Body Shampoo Bar
Sry, but how freakin’ cute is this shampoo bar?! Not only does the packaging make it an excellent gift, but it’s also got a hydrating formula that’s great for most hair types (shout out to its star ingredient, goat milk, which soothes scalps and hair simultaneously).
Best Multitasking Shampoo Bar
Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Bar Soap
There’s a reason Dr. Bronner’s castile bar soaps have a cult-like following—you can use them on your hair, your body, and even your dishes (yup, really). This lavender-scented option is a personal favorite.
Best Vegan Shampoo Bar
O’Douds Shampoo Bar
It’s basically impossible to use this shampoo bar and not get a million “you smell so good” compliments, thanks to the formula’s tea tree oil and grapefruit peel. And can we take a moment to appreciate that ~chic~ packaging?
Best Shampoo Bar and Conditioner Set
Whiff Botanicals Shampoo Bar & Conditioning Bar
Ready to fully embrace the shampoo-bar life? This convenient little pack also comes with a conditioner bar, so there’s pretty much zero need for any plastic bottles in your routine. These puppies are totally scent-free, BTW, so even sensitive-skin types can use ’em.
Best Hydrating Shampoo Bar
Christophe Robin Hydrating Shampoo Bar
Best Coconut Oil Shampoo Bar
Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Shampoo Bar
I love this shampoo bar for two reasons: (1) The packaging is, like, stupid-cute and (2) the formula is really excellent. It’s loaded with ultra-hydrating ingredients like coconut oil and murumuru butter that moisturize and clean your hair simultaneously.
Best Shampoo Bar for Curly Hair
Lush Cosmetics Avocado Co-Wash
Perfect for curlier hair types, this bar washes and conditions all in one with the avocado, capuaçu, and cocoa butter in the formula. Smooth it over wet hair or create a lather in the palm of your hands before massaging it in evenly—then rinse it all out.
Best Shampoo Bar for Oily Scalps
J. R. Liggett’s Tea Tree and Hemp Bar Shampoo
Best Shampoo Bar for Color-Treated Hair
Ethique Eco-Friendly Solid Shampoo Bar
Best Exfoliating Shampoo Bar
