Organic shampoo bar for everyone's needs

How to choose the right shampoo bar depends on your hair type. Before you get a organic shampoo bar it is important you choose identify its properties. Is your hair thick or thin? Curly or straight? Coarse, fluffy or even flat?

And what about your scalp? Is your scalp dry, flaky, blemishes, greasy or irritated easily? Or maybe you don't have any specific scalp or hair problems.

Whatever your hair type and scalp - you will find the perfect products in the complete shampoo bar selection of Flow Cosmetics. 

Each bar is made from organic oils and contains naturally moisturizing glycerine which works wonders for the hair and scalp. All our organic shampoo bars are vegan. These 120 gram bars last a very long time, up to 120 washes (depending on the length of your hair).
