If you’re looking for one of the best shampoos for dry, brittle hair, you’ve come to the right place! This week we will be diving in depth with our limited edition soap of the winter season Winter Wonderland Shampoo Bar, Marianne’s favorite Christmas bar. This shampoo bar not only smells amazing, but is packed with ingredients chosen because of their highly moisturizing properties for hair. We’ll talk about why hair care in the winter is so important and what makes this bar so perfect for giving your hair everything it needs during the cold, dry months!
Why Does Hair Get Dry In The Winter?
The winter season brings joy, but it also brings dry skin, red cheeks, and brittle, lifeless hair. You may think these problems have to do with the freezing cold weather…but the quality of your hair in the winter is not affected by the temperatures so much as the lack of moisture in the air during the winter months. In fact, the winter air is actually so harsh that it tries to pull moisture from your hair. Luckily, there is an easy fix to this problem. Adding extra hydration into your hair care routine will help to maintain your hair and will keep it healthier overall. We designed our Winter Wonderland Shampoo Bar with hydration in mind. We’ve got naturally cleansing elements to keep your scalp clean, but not stripped of natural oils. Moisturizing butters to deep condition your strands. And fortifying oils to lock in moisture and keep hair shiny and strong!
Ingredients in the Winter Wonderland Shampoo Bar and Their Benefits
Saponified Oils of Sustainable Palm
This base ingredient is crucial to the soap making process, it gives you a nice hard bar and will enhance lather when mixed with coconut oil. Rated a 1 on EWG’s Skin Deep, this ingredient has little to no risks of causing cancer or containing any kind of toxicity,
Coconut oil is a gentle and effective cleanser due to its fatty acid content. The best part is its ability to moisturize hair and skin and the thick lather it creates! Check out our Coconut Bars for pure coco-nutty BLISS!

Sunflower oil is FANTASTIC because it is a 0 on the comedogenic scale, which means it won’t clog pores. This oil can be used to moisturize any skin type…and that isn’t all it will do!
According to an article on Healthline, sunflower oil contains antioxidant vitamin E, so applying it topically to skin will allow your skin to benefit from vitamin E (think anti-aging properties, protection from sun-damage…all that awesome stuff). Sunflower oil also contains linoleic acid, an important component of helping the skin retain moisture as well as acting as an anti-inflammatory aid.
Castor bean is a skin soother, it is both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial and can be used on sensitive skin.
Unrefined Organic Cocoa Butter
Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which means it penetrates the hair strand to give you strong, glossy hair.
White Kaolin Clay
White Kaolin Clay is the gentlest of all cosmetic clays and works to draw impurities out of your skin and hair without completely drying it out. Read about all the different types of cosmetic clays we use in our products!
This oil is rich in minerals and helps keep your scalp clean and healthy while also helping to reduce additional hair loss.
Rosemary Oil Extract
This aromatic scent may encourage and stimulate hair growth!
Essential Oils of Sweet Orange, Pine, Cinnamon Leaf and Nutmeg
A blend of essential oils that will take you to a cozy little cabin snug in the midst of a winter wonderland!
