ZERO WASTE GIFTS,  ZERO WASTE TIPS

Zero Waste tips: Lamazuna’s solid shampoo

Since I realized that over the years I have filled my bathroom with plastic, with so many products, mostly useless, I changed my attitude and I started simplifying, having less, choosing better.
I started from my daily routine, to make it simpler, and I decided to break free from all the plastic bottles I stored up in my bathroom because they had a big impact on the amount of waste I usually produced.

So many times I lingered over old photographs of my grandmother as a young woman: she was so beautiful, she didn’t use makeup, she didn’t have a thousand face and body creams that promised magical transformations (which never happen). I wanted to be like her. So I looked for those essential products I couldn’t get rid of, but with different and specific characteristics: natural ingredients, simple packaging without plastic, cruelty-free and possibly handmade. That’s how I discovered Lamazuna!

I have already written about this brand in the post dedicated to solid toothpaste, its first product I tried.

Now I will tell you something about its solid shampoo.
So far, Lamazuna made six different types of shampoo and I have tried three of these; the products keep getting better and better every time!

The same characteristics are valid for all the shampoos: they are solid blocks of 55g each, so they are very handy to carry around during travels, they do not need a plastic package, in fact, they are sold in minimal cardboard boxes that are recyclable and compostable (thanks to plant-based inks), so the waste is really zero! They are handmade, they don’t contain sulfates, the ingredients are all natural, vegan and cruelty-free.

The use is simple: just rub the shampoo on wet hair to form a creamy foam. Then massage the hair and wash it as you would with a liquid shampoo!

To store it, just place it on a soap dish or in a small glass or jar, where it can easily dry out.

The first thought may go to the price, higher than what the supermarkets offer, but this solid one has the advantage of lasting much longer, at least twice as much as liquid ones because a very little product is necessary to be effective.

An advantage that I love is that this product can also be used during excursions in nature: since all the ingredients are of natural origin, its use doesn’t create any pollution!

My favorite is a new product: shampoo for dry hair with vanilla and coconut!

This shampoo leaves my hair so soft that it doesn’t need a conditioner. Its scent is sweet and delicious, given by a fragrance of natural origin. It’s free of essential oils, so it is ideal for pregnant women, nursing mothers, and children.

The composition of the vanilla and coconut shampoo:
– Sodium cocoyl isethionate: sweet surfactant from coconut. Allows cleaning and creating foam.
– Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil: certified organic coconut oil that nourishes the hair.
– Kaolin: white clay, beauty treatment known for its cleansing and purifying properties.
– Stearic acid, palmitic acid: from olive oil, solidifies the shampoo; there is no palm oil in this ingredient.
– Caprylyl/capryl glucoside, coco glucoside: surfactant derived from coconut oil, gives a soft and creamy foam.
– Parfum/fragrance: perfume of natural origin.
– Tocopherol, Helianthus annuus seed oil: antioxidant of vegetable origin (Vitamin E), prevents rancidity of vegetable oils, contained in sunflower oil.
– Aqua: some drops of water, which will then evaporate, make the dough soft to make it pour into the molds.

Solid shampoo for normal hair with Scots pine

Delicate perfume, suitable for women and men, you will be surprised to see that, thanks to its composition, the hair gets oily more slowly than with a traditional shampoo.

The composition of the Scots pine shampoo:
– Decyl glucoside, lauryl glucoside: sweet surfactant from coconut. It allows to clean skin and hair and to create foam.
– Sodium cocoyl isethionate, sodium isethionate: surfactant derived from coconut oil, gives a soft and creamy foam.
– Cocos nucifera oil: coconut oil that nourishes the hair.
– Stearic acid: coming from olive oil, solidifies the shampoo.
– Glycerin: glycerin from organic Karanja, nourishes the hair.
– Pinus sylvestris leaf oil: pine essential oil, purifies and relaxes.
– Limonène: component of pine essential oil.
– Montmorillonite: green clay, absorbent and soothing.
– Kaolinite: white clay, a delicate beauty treatment known for its cleansing and purifying properties.

And at last, I’m also using solid shampoo for dry hair with orange.

The composition of the orange shampoo:
– Decyl glucoside, lauryl glucoside: sweet surfactant from coconut. It allows to clean skin and hair and to create foam.
– Sodium cocoyl isethionate, sodium isethionate: surfactant derived from coconut oil, gives a soft and creamy foam.
– Stearic acid: coming from olive oil, solidifies the shampoo.
– Citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil: sweet orange essential oil for a delicious fragrance.
– Limonene, linalool: components of the sweet orange essential oil, certified organic.
– Argania spinosa (argan) kernel oil: Argan oil, with an emollient action.
– Cocos nucifera oil: coconut oil that nourishes the hair.
– Illite: clay known for its detoxifying and purifying effect.
– Kaolin: white clay, beauty treatment known for its cleansing and purifying properties.
