ONE Natural Solid Shampoo

Ever have problems with packing shampoo in your luggage when you travel? Have you ever tried solid shampoos out there in the market? I know that I have been reluctant to try them. It’s just something I’m not used to, but I’m glad that I caved in. I had the opportunity to try out ONE’s solid shampoo in Hair Biscuit, a natural solid shampoo with an aluminum shower tin that comes in an all-recyclable cardboard packaging. Being green has never been more apparent than looking at this item. The solid shampoo I got is called Hair Biscuit for “yummy looking hair”. It is also available in other scents such as It’s Green (for bouncy lively hair), Goldilocks (name should be a clue!) and Squeaky Clean (for oily hair).

The 2 oz solid shampoo is nestled in the aluminum shower tin can. It is formulated with soothing oatmeal and conditioning natural oils instead of harsh chemicals. This product is very easy to use and transport. Plus, it smells so good! No kidding! I actually even spotted this item when I was on vacation to my country of birth, the Philippines. I’m definitely impressed with that. To use, simply rub 3 or 4 times over wet hair. This will bring up some suds for you to lather with. I found out a little goes a long way with this product.

Taken directly from the back of the product packaging:

DIRECTIONS: Get your hair nice and wet, run the bar over your hair 3 or 4 times, then lather in and rinse out. Return the bar to a dry place to insure its longevity. Solid is the way to save space in the shower and in the landfills. ONE Solid Shampoo lasts as long as 3 8 oz bottles of shampoo and it leaves your hair shiny and clean. Viola, you’re fabulous!

What I love about this product? It’s supposed to last about the equivalent of 3 regular 8 oz bottles of shampoo. My hair was long when I started using this (up to my waist), but then I donated 12 inches in the middle of using this. At the rate the product is being used up, I’d say it lasts about between 2 to 3 regular 8 oz bottles of shampoo really. It really depends on how much you think is enough on your hair to use. And as always, keep the solid shampoo in a dry place and you can slip it back into the aluminum shower tin can for travel. As far as serving its purpose of a shampoo, to clean hair, it does a pretty good job. My hair is squeaky clean and fresh smelling for the entire day. The scent reminds me of a combination of different fragrant flowers. It doesn’t dry it out at all or leave any residue that weighs my hair down. Note that this is based on my hair type and your experience may vary. It’s possible that experience and/or results will differ for you even if we have the same hair type. I have normal to oily hair that’s very straight and smooth.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing really. I might prefer certain scents over the other, but this one I’ve used gets a thumbs up from me.

It retails for $7.99 and is available at Target Stores nationwide, Target.com, Walgreens.com and OneBathandBody.com. For that price, not bad for the amount of use you get out of it. Price may slightly vary too, since I spotted it at my local Target for $5.99. I will definitely purchase more and give them as gifts for my friends that are travel bugs.

  1. Does it condition too? I often find some shampoos can be too “stripping” of my hair and I need conditioners to bring the moisture back to it.

    • It doesn’t strip as much as shampoos do. I know that they have a separate conditioner bar too if you need more conditioning. 🙂

  3. That’s nice that they are so readily available in mass discounters. It looks like a jelly cookie ready to eat. LOL

  4. Saw this at Target the other day then looked at the ingredients =/ …all of this b-s, unregulated “natural” labeling gets me riled, I think it’s unethical. Same crap in 99% of them as “regular” hair products, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate in this one…. nasty substance if you ask me. Don’t wanna rain on the parade, just add my 2 cents. (glad I make my own hair products :D)
