Excellent Product

I love that the HiBar products allow me to help reduce plastic usage. And I love that their products are vegan. But mostly I love how the Shampoo makes my hair feel. It took me a few times to get use to how to get enough lather for my thick hair, I stuck with it and I'm glad I did.

Lois, so glad to hear you love the luxurious feel of our shampoo! It can definitely take a few tries to get the hang of it, but we think it's well worth it - sounds like you do too!

Best shampoo ever

I tried Hibar initially in order to reduce my own plastic use and I ended up loving it more than any other shampoo I have tried! As curly person it is so hard to find that perfect mix of clean and moisture. Bonus is the shape that makes it easier to use!

Thanks, Antoinette! Glad your first couple washes with Curl have been good. Nothing beats soft and shiny hair!

  • Q: Does it lather?

    A: Yes! Apply HiBAR shampoo directly to your very wet hair, massaging into your scalp and roots until you feel a good lather. (Remember, lathering is not really a measure of how a shampoo is working.) Rinse thoroughly.

  • Q: How long does one HiBAR last?

    A: It really depends on the length and thickness of your hair and how often you wash. We like to be conservative on this, rather than overpromise, so we say that a HiBAR shampoo bar lasts AT LEAST as long as a 16oz bottle, and our conditioners last as long as two 16 oz bottles.

  • Q: Is HIBAR natural?

    Yes, we're using almost entirely plant-based ingredients. We're all about getting rid of nasty chemicals. Plus, we hope to one day be accepted into the most demanding natural stores and co-ops, and so we're formulating our products with that happy far-off day in mind.

  • Q: What does HiBAR smell like?

    We use a blend of essential oils and other plant based ingredients to give HiBAR a gentle citrus aroma. It's just enough to give your shower a refreshing feel, but not so strong that it's going to cling to your hair. NOTE: Because the fragrance is from essential oils, the aroma is strongest when the bar is first removed from the packaging, and will soften as the bar is left out in the open.

  • Q: Will HiBAR turn to mush in my shower?

    No, not if you store it correctly, out of standing water, and away from direct spray from the shower.

  • Q: How do I hold HiBAR?

    Cup the bottom of the bar in the palm of your hand, rest the long edge against the lengths of your fingers, then use your fingertips to guide the bevelled top through your hair.
