Nettle and Rosemary Solid Shampoo

(8 customer reviews)


If you’ve tried solid shampoo before and been disappointed by the results, this solid shampoo with nettle and rosemary will change your mind. 

Its SLS-free blend of natural oils, aloe vera, nettle and rosemary works for all hair types – and it’s particularly effective for hair loss or an itchy flaky scalp. It leaves your hair feeling squeaky clean without stripping out its natural moisture barrier. 

In short, this solid shampoo bar is a game changer because it brings your hair back to full health. Try it, and I guarantee you’ll never go back to chemical shampoos in plastic bottles.

Most solid shampoos on the market contain compacted SLS needles which strip the hair and scalp of its protective moisture barrier. My solid shampoo is made differently, with a nutritious blend of natural organic ingredients which work with your hair, not against it. 

The vibrant green colour comes from dried nettles. They prevent hair loss and reduce flaky scalp conditions such as dandruff, while rosemary and peppermint essential oils stimulate circulation in the scalp.  

Borage oil deals with inflammatory scalp conditions, including eczema and psoriasis. 

I’ve also added a generous amount of aloe vera gel. It’s a great conditioner, and contains enzymes which repair scalp skin cells and reduce itchiness and dandruff. Along with the nettles, aloe vera also promotes hair growth. 

Argan oil boosts production of keratin – the protein that keeps our hair strong, shiny and supple.

Nutritious avocado, coconut and extra virgin olive oils form the base of the shampoo, along with castor oil which stimulates hair growth and ensures the shampoo foams effectively and rinses out well.

How to use your solid shampoo bar – a quick tutorial

  1. Wet your hair thoroughly, then massage the bar into the scalp from the forehead to the back of the neck using small circular motions.
  2. Once you’ve built up a good lather, use your fingers to work the shampoo into the scalp, then run your hands down the length of your hair from root to tip. Rinse thoroughly with running water.    
  3. If you find it difficult to work up a lather, or it feels a bit weird, don’t worry. At first, you may need a repeat wash to make sure you’ve got rid of all traces of the synthetic build-up left by traditional shampoo. 

Your hair may take about a week to adjust – but trust me, it’s worth persisting. Your hair will be more bouncy, shiny and healthy than you can ever imagine. 

Because the shampoo bar doesn’t strip the natural oil from your hair, you may no longer need your usual moisturising conditioner (so that’s another plastic bottle ditched!). Instead, try using my coconut and argan solid hair conditioning bar

    I have been using the Nettle and Rosemary shampoo bar , and the conditioner bar with orange oil in it for a month. They are great. My bob length fine hair took no time at all to get used to it. My hair is beautifully soft , my scalp is healthy , and i keep catching whiffs of orange as i go about my day. I will probably get 6 weeks worth of use from the shampoo bar (using every other day). I’m probably using more than I need but i just love how it lathers up. I’ve hardly made a dent in the conditioner bar.

    It’s brilliant, after a brief hospital stay I couldn’t wait to get back to using this fabulous shampoo bar. The hospital wash striped my hair of everything but this bar in conjunction with the orange conditioner bar got my hair back to normal in no time. Highly recommended, wouldn’t want to be without them.

    Love the Nettle and Rosemary solid shampoo. Took about 4 washes to see the full benefits on my hair but it is absolutely brilliant. My hair is coloured so maybe that was why it took a couple of goes. The bar has lasted over a month and that is with me washing my hair every third day. Love it thank you Sue am ordering 2 bars now.

    Wow. My first experience of a shampoo bar and it couldn’t be better.😊 I have coloured hair
    (bright blue at the moment) and it cares for it very well, without stripping the colour. I’ll be buying a conditioner bar next….

    This shampoo has been a real game changer in my bid to reduce my plastic usage and also to not use SLS products anymore. I have tried several other brands of shampoo bar but they just didn’t work. They left my hair feeling waxy and dull even after a really long transition period. I saw the video about shampoo bars (the one with the lady actually washing her hair) and decided to give it one final try. I am so glad I did! This shampoo bar is the best thing I have ever used on my hair. People actually comment on how nice my hair looks so I will never go back to bottle shampoo. Please don’t ever stop making them!

    I’ve tried several other brands before Sue’s, and this is by far the best. Leaves my hair soft and shiny, and smells lovely too. Have just ordered 3 more!

    I love this shampoo! It took me a while to get used to it but now my hair has adjusted to it and it’s in the best condition it has ever been in. I use it with the orange conditioner and they are the perfect partnership for my hair.
