8 Simple Swaps And Changes To Make your Hair Care Routine More Sustainable

If you want a more sustainable hair care routine, you're in the right place! You can make plenty of easy swaps and changes to reduce environmental impact and still have great-looking hair.  Let's explore ways you can make your hair routine more sustainable.

1. Swap From Shampoo Bottle To Shampoo Bar

One of the easiest swaps you can make is switching from bottled to sustainable vegan shampoo bars. Not only are shampoo bars handmade in the UK more eco-friendly, but they're also more convenient for travel and last longer than liquid shampoo. 

2. Swap From The Conditioner Bottle To The Conditioner Bar

You can swap your bottle for sustainable vegan natural conditioner bars like shampoo. These plastic-free shampoo and conditioner bars are a great alternative to traditional bottled hair care products. They work just as well and last longer than bottled conditioners. And if you're looking for an effective and sustainable conditioner bar, we've got you covered with our incredibly nourishing vegan conditioner on our website.

3. Air-Dry Your Hair

Did you know not using a hair dryer can reduce your carbon footprint? The energy to power your hair dryer can add up over time, so consider air-drying your hair instead. Not only will it save energy, but it can also be gentler on your hair, reducing the risk of heat damage. You might even discover a new hairstyle you love when you let your hair dry naturally!

4. Brush Hair Morning And Night To Avoid Breakage

Regular brushing can help keep your hair healthy and strong, reducing the likelihood of breakage. By brushing your hair morning and night, you'll stimulate your scalp and distribute natural oils throughout your hair. It can also help reduce the need for styling products, which can contain harmful chemicals and contribute to your environmental impact. 

5. Wash Less Frequently To Save Water

Another way to make your hair routine more sustainable is to wash your hair less frequently. It can save water and energy and reduce the amount of hair care products you need to use. If you're used to washing your hair daily, gradually decrease the frequency to every other day and every three days if you can. Your hair might take some time to adjust, but it will eventually adapt to a less frequent washing routine.

6. Use Sustainable Hair Care Accessories

In addition to sustainable hair care products, you can make your hair care routine more eco-friendly using sustainable hair care accessories. It could include using a bamboo brush instead of a plastic one or a microfibre towel instead of a traditional towel to reduce drying time.

7.Choose Products With Sustainable Packaging

Another way to make your hair care routine more sustainable is to choose hair care products with sustainable packaging. Look for products that use recycled or biodegradable materials or that offer refill options to reduce waste. You can also opt for larger sizes of products to reduce the amount of packaging used overall.

8. DIY Hair Care Products

Finally, one way to make your hair care routine more sustainable is to DIY hair care products. It can be a fun and creative way to customise your hair care routine while reducing waste and avoiding harmful ingredients. Coconut oil is a great ingredient if you're look to replenish your hair with much needed hydration. 


Make your hair care routine more sustainable without being difficult by swapping to shampoo and conditioner bars, air drying your hair, brushing morning and night, washing less frequently, and using sustainable hair care accessories.  With sustainable packaging, using natural hair care ingredients, supporting sustainable hair care brands, and DIY-ing your hair care products, you can reduce your environmental impact and still have great-looking hair.
