I love it

I have greasy hair and have always found it difficult to find a shampoo that would not only clean my hair leaving it grease free, but also not to be too harsh that it dries it out. I am 55 years old, I have tried MANY shampoos over the years, and finally I have found my perfect shampoo! I bought the trial size and have just ordered my 2nd full size bar. I wanted to give it time to make sure it was going to continue to be ok for my hair as i have found in the past that some shampoos start off ok but then seem to not work as well after time. This shampoo definitely has continued to work. It cleans my hair perfectly and leaves it extremely soft which is quite rare for my hair. I feel sure also that it feels healthier and has more body. I love it. Thank you Catherine.”

Best shampoo bar!

This is such a fantastic shampoo bar and it does exactly what it says! It smells gorgeous and is so easy to use. I've tried several different shampoo bars and all have left a build up of residue after a while and my hair has struggled to not be greasy. I left it a few months before reviewing this shampoo because I wanted to make sure but as soon as I used it the first time, my hair actually squeaked with cleanliness! It's continued to be perfect and I can go longer without washing it which is really great. Beautiful shampoo, gorgeous scent and super clean, shiny hair with less breakage- very impressed. Thank you xx”

Plastic free without compromise.

It was a done deal as soon as I opened the paper wrapper and inhaled the uplifting scent of this shampoo bar. It’s been about two years now since the first ‘shiny bee’ bar was sent to me as a tester. I was converted from the outset and I haven’t bought a plastic bottle since. I couldn’t resist trying ‘glossy bee’, even though each bar lasts me nearly six months! I’m so pleased I did. Using this shampoo is a delight. It’s so luxurious and leaves my hair soft and glossy. For the ultimate pamper I like to use the hair oil and relax in a bath with the bath oils, finally washing my hair with glossy bee. Fabulous! Thank you Catherine and Honey Bee Beautiful.”

Product Description

Our Glossy Bee shampoo bar has proved to be a popular, well-performing, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional shampoos. With the natural, pure essential oils of lavender to soothe and calm, rosemary to help relieve scalps prone to irritation and add shine, and tea tree with natural antifungal and antibacterial properties, you can trust in this shampoo bar to help promote shinier hair and a soothed scalp.   

As the ingredients may be new to many, please see below for some further information as to what they are and why we are using them:

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is derived from coconut oil. It is mild, well tolerated, has good foaming power and provides a rich creamy lather.

Sodium Coco Sulfate, an EcoCert approved ingredient, made from the fatty acids of coconut oil, and is a good palm-free alternative to sodium lauryl sulfate, it is milder, creates a rich foam, cleanses hair and skin and leaves a great shine.

Varisoft EQ 65 is a green, EcoCert approved, readily biodegradable ester quat which acts as a high performing conditioning agent aiding in smoothing down the hair cuticle and preventing hair damage. It is conditioning to skin and hair, while improving wet detangling and combing, and offers superior dry combing and hair feel.

Cetearyl Alcohol is an emollient known to soften your skin and hair and provide slip which allows us to detangle our hair better.

Rosemary Vinegar is white wine vinegar infused with rosemary which is naturally anti-inflammatory and encourages cell regeneration.

Argan Oil acts as a moisturizer and can help to soothe scalps prone to flakiness.

Lavender Essential Oil is naturally anti-fungal and promotes hair growth.

Rosemary Powder/Essential Oil stimulates circulation to the scalp, increases hair shine and relieves scamps prone to irritation.

Tea Tree Essential Oil has natural anti-fungal and antibacterial properties that help in maintaining a clean, healthy scalp.

To prolong the life of your shampoo bar, we recommend letting it air dry in between uses by using dish with drainage or an eco-friendly shampoo bag. For a 100% natural sisal bag to store your shampoo bar in between use or for travel CLICK HERE.

Also, did you know that as fellow nature lovers, we will donate 5p from your purchase to the Bumble Bee Conservation Trust.

Our Glossy Bee is available in approximately a 75g or 10g round. Both lovingly wrapped in fully compostable, recycled greaseproof paper. Please note that as our shampoo bars are hand moulded their weight can vary slightly.  

Directions for Use

Stroke our shampoo bar all over your wet hair or rub between your hands to create a lather.  Gently message into the scalp and rinse – most of our ‘Glossy Bee’ converts find they do not need to follow up with a conditioner.

Inhale the natural aroma of the essential oils for an extra ‘me-time’ treat!

We understand eco -friendly shampoo bars often require a slightly different technique – isn’t it frustrating when you are just not sure if you are using a product correctly. To help, have a look at our video below demonstrating our shampoo bar in action:

Shampoo Bars for the future

This is my first purchase of a shampoo bar.
I have been pleasantly surprised by how much lather in produces.
Leaves my hair soft and smells nice.
Plus l still only need to wash my hair twice a week.
Love how I'm using natural products and helping the environment in the process.
It's a clear winner for me Glossy Bee to use at home or away.

A Great Shampoo Bar That Suits Me!

I’ve tried a shampoo bar before and although it left my hair squeaky clean, the next day it was lank and not very nice. So when I saw a new variation had been created I had to try it. It’s a different formulation and my hair is squeaky clean again but it’s soft and clean the next day too. I’m really pleased. I’m going to buy a whole bar now and make sure that I pack one in my holiday luggage. So not only saving on the weight of shampoo and conditioner bottles AND saving the planet too by using less plastic! Big tick Cath and the Bees xx

BINGO! I’ve found treasure!

I’ve had a quest, over several months, to find a shampoo bar that works, buying and trying bars from various other artisan makers. The only other plastic free shampoo bar that worked for me was from Lush, but they use palm oil products and I didn’t want that.
All the other natural plastic and palm oil free hair soaps left my difficult hair (baby fine, limp and greasy) heavy, waxy, clamped to my head, dull and dangling in rat’s tails!
Then thankfully I found Glossy Bee and knew as soon as I used it that it was ‘the one’! My hair felt squeaky clean when washing it and it has left me with hair that is SHINY and full of BODY.
I’m assuming from Catherine’s blurb and list of ingredients that Glossy Bee is does not contain any product derived from palm oil, I hope this is the case!
All the other hair soap that I’ve collected over the past few months will not go to waste as they all smell wonderful and will make lovely hand and body soap.
Thank you Catherine for inventing this shampoo bar, my search is over and I will definitely buy it again.

This is without a doubt the best shampoo bar I have tried, why? residue
2. It perimates through my hair and doesnt just sit on top
3. It lathers instantly with minimal running.
4. It smells gorgeous.
I have been using a variety of well known and recommended bars and whilst they 'worked' there has always been a compromise compared to SLS and plastic. Im no longer compromising with this one! Thank you HBB!
Ps. I live in a very hard water area. P"
