If you think hydrating is the same as moisturizing, think again.

When it comes to shampoo, the words hydrating and moisturizing are often used interchangeably. But dig a little deeper and there are some important distinctions.

Sound confusing? Good. That’s exactly why it’s so important to understand the difference..

Let’s start with hydrating shampoos. They add or restore water content to prevent dryness and help maintain the natural moisture balance. Job done? Not so fast.

Moisturizing shampoos like HiBAR Moisturize Formula Solid Shampoo Bars, on the other hand, not only contain ingredients that attract and retain water—they include natural oils that nourish and soften the hair.

HiBAR Moisturize Formula Solid Shampoo Bars are made with coconut oil and healthy, nourishing rice protein from brown rice. Together they help form a protective layer around the hair shaft, locking in moisture and enhancing the natural, luxurious shine.

Sound good? There’s more. Rice protein is rich in amino acids to fortify and repair damage. It also adds elasticity to help prevent breakage and split ends. And if you have fine or thin hair, the rice protein in HiBAR Moisturize Formula Solid Shampoo Bars can be a game-changer.

You get the drift—if somebody tries to tell you hydrating is just another word for moisturizing—tell ‘em they’re all wet.
