Factors: How were the different hair soaps rated?

In order to determine my top recommendation and give you my honest, helpful assessment of the best hair soap, I have based this comparison primarily on the following evaluation criteria:

  • IngredientsI made sure that the soaps contained ingredients that were as natural and skin-friendly as possible. Products with potentially harmful or controversial chemicals didn't even make it into the comparison.
  • Reviews from other peopleSince I was not able to test all the soaps myself, the opinions (e.g. on effectiveness and satisfaction) of customers are also a valuable indicator for the comparison result. Accordingly, I preferred bar soaps with positive, authentic testimonials, especially in the pre-selection.
  • Sustainability: I naturally paid a lot of attention to the ecological footprint of the products. Hair soaps that are organic, eco-certified, vegan and packaged plastic-free, among other things, had the best chances.
  • Price-performanceOf course, it is not only the pure price, but also the quality, weight, durability and efficiency of a soap in relation to the cost that determines how good it is. This criterion should ensure that the purchase is really worthwhile.

Application: How to use solid hair soap correctly?

The practical application is - similar to the classic liquid shampoo - really simple. However, I have put together a few tips for first-time users that should definitely be taken to heart:

  1. Moisten the hair soap: First, simply take the bar of soap and moisten it with a little water from the shower spray or just your wet hands. Theoretically, you can also break the soap into small pieces so that you don't soak the entire soap every time.
  2. Lather up in your hands: Now simply rub the hair soap in your hands to create enough lather. You can also use a Soap bag made of cotton, as this produces a lot of foam even with low friction. A recommendable You can get organic soap bags here*.
  3. Massage into hair and rinse out: Now simply massage the lather into your scalp. After a short exposure time, you can then rinse it out thoroughly.
  4. Dry in a bowl: To ensure that your hair soap lasts as long as possible and your bathroom stays clean, it should dry quickly after use. You can, for example, hang it in the soap bag or place it on a Soap dish lay. A beautiful You can get an olive wood soap dish here*.

Hair types: Which hair soap is best for whom?

Basically, the rated, natural hair soaps are Suitable for all hair types. But hair is known to do what it wants - and can be extremely unruly.

To help you find the perfect natural soap for your individual hair, here are a few more Info and recommendationswhich should simplify your decision for one of the hair soaps examined:

  • Dry hair: If your scalp and hair tend to be dry or straw-like, the first thing you should do is to use the solid moisturizing shampoo from SANTE* try it out. It has a high degree of superfatting and is specially designed to moisturize dry hair. Also the solid shampoo from FOAMIE* offers itself.

  • Thick and curly hair: If you have a really curly head of hair or quite thick hair, the pH skin neutral is certainly the right choice, solid shampoo from Waschkram* the best alternative.

Bonus tip: What is the best way to transport solid bar soaps (when traveling)?

Apart from this hair soap comparison, I have an additional piece of advice for you from my own experience, which, at least for me, has made the all-encompassing use of solid hair soap!

Especially when traveling, I always had the problem that the Soap still moist and therefore could not be transported without a plastic bag. Then I simply such metal soap tins* which fits any soap without any problems and with which even moist soaps can be transported cleanly and waste-free in a suitcase or toiletry bag.
