Nil shampoo and conditioner hair bars review

nil shampoo review

Clean and green is the future. Plastic isn’t. I’m incredibly lucky to be living in a country that has so many amazing eco-conscious brands. Also extremely privileged to have had the opportunity to work with some of these brands. Nil Products (linked) is one of them. I have a working relationship with them, that has blossomed a lot in 2020 as I get to photograph their beautiful products before they even land on their website. I happened to make a video for their shampoo and conditioner bars a couple of months ago. The grapefruit version for normal/oily hair. After the shoot, I was curious and I actually used them on my own ‘normal’ hair. What a pleasant surprise. I was hooked.

It’s been a very long time since a solid bar has ticked all the boxes for me. This duo did. It made my hair soft, shiny and manageable, without any leave-in serum even. I just had to write about them.

Over the years, I’ve managed to get a lot of folks off their additive plastic shampoo bottles. My argument is decent. Why would you want to pay for something that’s 90% water packaged in an unsustainable plastic bottle. It just doesn’t make sense. You have heaps of water in your shower at your disposal. If you are in Aus or NZ and are yet to experience solid hair bars, these ones from nil products will knock your socks off. Take my word for it. They even have a version for dry hair with 'Orange & Geranium' which I’m very keen to try next.

These solid bars lather really well. They claim to last 60 washes but I’m yet to test that claim out. The conditioner bar I’m confident will last that long because its practically still the same size as when I took it out of the packaging. Me and husband share our toiletries so it’s hard to keep track of usage in our household. Some days Aiza chips in too!

Nil shampoo bars feature coconut, hempseed oil, soy proteins, argan oil and other essential oils. All natural and plastic-free, these are equivalent to 2 plastic shampoo bottles since they are in concentrated form. No diluting with water with these ones. Moreover, these are free from silicone and soap. Vegan and cruelty free too. 

If you want to increase the longevity of your bars, I highly recommend storing them in a soap dish with slots, like this bamboo one from nil products (linked). The drier they stay, longer they'll last.

I love love these and highly recommend. Definitely a bang for your buck. Best that these are NZ made too :)
