Goodbye plastic, hello HiBAR.

Meet HiBAR’s plastic-free, soap-free solid shampoo bar. These concentrated formulas are a blend of gentle ingredients that deliver beautifully soft, silky and manageable hair.

The unique shape of our solid shampoo bar is designed to fit comfortably in your hand for easy use. But don’t be fooled by the compact size—each shampoo bar lasts as long as two big, bulky bottles of liquid shampoo.

Best of all, HiBAR is the first solid shampoo bar with formulas tailored for specific hair types. For thin, fine or lifeless hair, our Volumize Shampoo Bar formula is made with African dates and vitamin B5 for frizz control and added definition to waves and curls.

Excited the Volumizing is AMAZING

I used the Maintenance line and needed to switch to the Volumizing like the big wasteful plastic bottles I used for years. LOVE THEM. Thank you for helping save the planet.

Pretty good

I’m not sure that this bar fully measures up to my previous liquid shampoo or the other brand of bar shampoo I’ve tried. Mainly, I find it a rather drying (and the moisturizing bars not moisturizing enough - I have a sample pack) for my hair. That said, I am committed to switching to bar shampoo and it’s clear that this bar will last me a while. Each HiBar shampoo and conditioner is also a few dollars cheaper than the other brand I’ve tried, which is helpful!

Smooth Healthy Hair

This shampoo is my boyfriend’s new favorite shampoo. It makes his hair look super healthy and smooth. My hair is a bit more fine so it makes my hair hold whatever shape I put it in a little too well. If I put my hair in a bun it will stay in that shape a whole day and the next. Definitely recommend for hair types in product description.

Thanks for sharing, Katrina! I think our Maintain set would work really well for your fine, oily hair. I would definitely recommend trying that next time!

Good for thinning hair. Great for the planet!

My hair is squeaky clean without being harsh on my fine, thinning hair. The scent is very light which I prefer.

Thanks, Marlene! Squeaky clean hair sounds good, and glad it worked for your fine, thin 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.
