Shampoo & Conditioner Bars

Did you know that typical liquid shampoos and conditioners can be as much as 95% water? By going solid and eliminating the water, our concentrated shampoo and conditioner bars contain only the effective, all-natural ingredients you need for stronger, shinier, healthier hair.

Reducing the water also means reducing the waste. Annually, 80 billion plastic bottles are manufactured into existence for liquid shampoo and conditioners alone. Our packaging is plastic-free, and uses only 100% post-consumer recycled content.

Let’s be real – you also you need a product that works. We use only scientifically-proven, all-natural ingredients, so you can trust our bars to cleanse, protect, hydrate, and leave your hair looking and feeling its best.

Rub the shampoo bar directly onto wet hair. Gently massage into your hair and scalp to form a lather, then rinse it out. Be sure to let shampoo and conditioner bars to dry in open air between uses.

The best place to store a shampoo or conditioner bar is on a soap dish, so it can drain & air dry properly between uses. The key to making your bar last as long as possible is to keep it dry when not in use.

Absolutely! Though lather isn’t an indication of how effectively a shampoo will clean, we know how nice that rich, foamy experience can be. Rest assured – we’ve got you lather lovers covered.

How long your bar lasts will depend on the length and thickness of your hair, how often you wash, and how you care for your bar.

On average, our bars should last for as many as 75 washes.

Because our shampoo bars are highly concentrated, you should be able to get as many washes out of them as 3 regular bottles of liquid shampoo, with no plastic bottle to dispose of afterward.

Sure can! Our shampoo will also clean and moisturize your skin. Hoping to travel light? Just grab your shampoo bar and you’re all set. Just keep in mind that your bar won’t last as long as if you were using it on just your hair.

Yes! Our shampoo and conditioner bars are safe for colour-treated hair.

We recommend that you use our bars within a year of purchase. Be sure to keep them in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use them. Truthfully, you can store them for longer and it won’t have any impact on their effectiveness, but you may notice the scent start to fade, and the colour change slightly.

Once you start using a bar, be sure to store it in a way that will permit it to dry thoroughly between uses. A soap dish with proper drainage is ideal.



Laundry Strips

Our laundry strips are an ultra-concentrated, liquidless laundry detergent that comes the form of a pre-measured, tearable strip. It's the eco-friendly solution to the 700 million plastic laundry detergent jugs that end up in landfills every year.

Separate one pre-measured laundry strip and place it in your washing machine. If using a top-load washer, place strip directly in drum. For a front-loading washer, tear the strip in half and add to the drum.

Generally, we recommend one strip per single load (3 - 5 kg) of lightly soiled laundry. For larger or more heavily soiled loads, increase the amount of detergent by simply adding a second or third strip. You also have the flexibility of tearing a strip into smaller portions for small loads, or when hand-washing.

You may be surprised to learn that the amount of suds produced does NOT relate to the detergent's cleaning power.

High Efficiency (HE) washing machines recommend the use of low-sudsing detergent formulas, specifically labelled as HE-compatible. Our Laundry Strips use a unique, low-sudsing formula that is HE-compatible, and works in all types of washing machines.

Other laundry detergents that produce lots of suds usually contain bubble-producing additives, which in reality do nothing to improve their cleaning power – these additives are added mainly for appearance purposes.

We recommend Good Juju Laundry Strips be used within three years of purchase.

Good Juju Detergent Strips can safely be used for hand-washing some wool fabrics, but we always recommend that you follow the specific washing recommendations of the clothing manufacturer. Manufacturers typically recommend dry-cleaning or hand-washing wool with specific cleaners. Good Juju strips may be used for hand-washing if care is taken to fully dissolve the strip in water prior to adding the wool clothes.

We do not recommend washing silk fabrics with Good Juju Laundry Strips. We always recommend you follow the washing recommendations of the clothing manufacturer. Most silk fabric manufacturers recommend dry-cleaning or hand-washing silk with specific cleaners.

Our laundry strips are safe for 100% cotton cloth diapers, but as always, we recommend that you follow the washing recommendations provided by the cloth diaper manufacturer.

Unlike most leading brand liquid detergents, Good Juju strips will not have any effect on the absorbency of the cloth, and is hypoallergenic. Please note that many modern cloth diapers also contain some combination of synthetic materials and glues in their support structure. Depending on the materials used, Good Juju laundry strips (and other detergents) may affect the strength and durability of that support structure.

Our laundry strips are safe for most synthetic fabrics, but we strongly recommend that you always follow the specific washing instructions provided by the clothing manufacturer.

Good Juju Laundry Strips do not contain the cationic surfactants or solvents often found in fabric softeners and many liquid detergents, which can impair the wicking properties of specific fabrics after multiple washes. Good Juju is generally safe for most synthetic fabrics.

Yes, Good Juju Laundry Strips are safe to use even if you are on a septic system.
