LUSH is arguably the pioneer of the shampoo bar. Simply apply the bar directly to wet hair and rub it in, or rub the foam in your hand first and then wash. This particular bar is intended to stimulate hair follicles to promote blood circulation, while the natural rosemary fragrance soothes and calms the scalp, adding shine to your hair.

Popular hair care brand Briogeo has worked to be sustainable.
