Alter/native Gently Cleansing Shampoo Bar - Zero Plastic - Lavender and Geranium 90g
Our summary: Shampoo bars are a great alternative to shampoos in a plastic bottle but they sometimes take a bit of getting used to. There is a transition period while your hair adjusts to the lack of SLS and other synthetic ingredients usually found in mainstream shampoos. It can also depend on how hard your water is. The PH balance is delicate. If you feel a greasy residue after washing and conditioning, you should pour a small amount of Apple Cider Vinegar over you hair and let it absorb for a few minutes - this will help restore the PH balance and leave you with shiny conditioned locks without any chemical nasties.
The Alter/native range of shampoo bars are richly moisturising and naturally nourishing for healthy shiny hair. The concentrated bar replaces traditional plastic shampoo bottles, reducing your plastic consumption and helping the planet too!
Made with essential oils, this cruelty-free range is suitable for all hair types and is created using the natural powers of plants that love your skin and respect our planet.
There's more than one way to fight dirty.

A Little Bit About Alter/native's Parent Company Suma:
We’re all natives of this little blue planet. As the climate crisis becomes more apparent, it’s clear we need to practice new, sustainable alternatives in our everyday lifestyle choices.
At Suma we’ve always done things a bit differently. Vegetarianism, sustainability and co-operation are at our heart, so we like to put these values in practice. When we talk about ethics, we mean business.
ALTER/NATIVE by Suma, our new body care range, offers an alternative to the highly processed soaps and shampoos you find on the high street. By harnessing the power of plants, we’ve created some gorgeous products that are great for your hair and your skin, as well as the planet.
Everything in our range is vegan and cruelty free, made with essential oils and free from nasties like parabens, SLS and SLES. What’s more, they’re made in the UK, and by local, small craft makers wherever possible.
ALTER/NATIVE by Suma loves your skin and respects our planet.
