Embody Nature Shampoo Bars: Find Your Perfect Hair Match!

Embody Nature's shampoo bars are taking the eco-conscious hair care world by storm. But with four different options, choosing the right one for your hair type can feel overwhelming. Fear not! This guide will break down each Embody Nature shampoo bar, its key natural ingredients, and reveal its hair type magic:

All Hair Types: The Nourishing Champion - Nourish Shampoo Bar

This is your go-to bar if you need help figuring out where to start. The "Nourish" bar is packed with natural ingredients like:

Cocoa Butter:

  • Moisturizing: Rich in fatty acids, cocoa butter deeply hydrates and nourishes the scalp and hair, particularly beneficial for dry, brittle, or damaged hair.
  • Shine Enhancement: By smoothing the hair cuticle, cocoa butter helps hair appear shinier and healthier.
  • UV Protection: Similar to shea butter, cocoa butter offers some natural protection from the harmful UV rays that can damage hair.

Avocado Oil:

  • Moisturizing and Nourishing: Rich in vitamins and fatty acids, avocado oil deeply hydrates and nourishes the scalp and hair, promoting overall hair health.
  • Strengthening: Avocado oil helps strengthen hair strands, reducing breakage and split ends.
  • Frizz Control: The fatty acids in avocado oil can help smooth the hair cuticle, reducing frizz and flyaway - leaving hair more manageable.

Green Clay:

  • Detoxification: Green clay helps remove buildup and impurities from the scalp.
  • Gentle Exfoliation: It can help remove dead skin cells, potentially reducing dandruff and promoting scalp health.
  • Mineral Replenishment: Green clay contains minerals that can be beneficial to the scalp and hair health.

The "Nourish" bar cleanses effectively without stripping your hair's natural oils, leaving it feeling soft, smooth, and manageable.

Dry, Damaged, or Colour-Treated Hair: Deep Hydration Hero - Hydrate Shampoo Bar

Dry, dehydrated hair needs a moisture miracle, and the "Hydrate" bar is here to help! This bar boasts a blend of nourishing ingredients specifically formulated for dry or colour-treated hair, including:

Cupuacu Butter

  • Deep Conditioning: A rich source of fatty acids and triglycerides, cupuacu butter deeply conditions the hair.
  • Scalp Nourishment: Cupuacu butter is also rich in vitamins and antioxidants that can help to nourish the scalp and promote healthy hair growth
  • Frizz Control: Cupuacu butter can help tame frizz and fly-aways, leaving hair smoother and more manageable.
    Shea Butter

    • UV Protection: Shea butter offers some natural protection from the sun's harmful UV rays, which can damage hair.
    Hydrolyzed Oat Protein
    • Strengthening: Hydrolyzed oat protein penetrates the hair shaft and helps to strengthen it from the inside out. This can help to reduce breakage and split ends.
    • Volumizing: Hydrolyzed oat protein also coats the hair shaft, which not only helps protect the hair shaft but can also add volume and body.
    • Shine-Enhancing: Hydrolyzed oat protein can help to smooth the hair cuticle, which can result in shinier hair.

    The "Hydrate" bar gently cleanses while infusing your hair with deep hydration, leaving it feeling revitalized and looking healthy.

    Fine or Sensitive Scalp: The Soothing Savior - Restore Shampoo Bar

    For those with fine hair or a sensitive scalp, harsh chemicals can be a nightmare. The "Restore" bar is a gentle giant, formulated with calming ingredients to soothe irritation and promote a healthy scalp, such as:

    Castor Oil

    • Hair Growth Promotion: Castor oil is rich in ricinoleic acid, which can stimulate hair growth.
    • Moisturizing: Castor oil can help to hydrate and nourish the scalp and hair.

    The "Restore" bar cleanses effectively without being overly stripping, leaving your hair feeling light and refreshed.

    The Balancing Act: Normal to Oily Hair - Balance Shampoo Bar

    This bar is designed for those with normal to oily hair. It strikes the perfect balance between cleansing and nourishing, removing excess oil without stripping your scalp's natural moisture barrier. Key ingredients include:

    Hydrolyzed Rice Protein

    • Strengthening: Similar to Hydrolyzed Oat Protein, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein is a small protein molecule that can penetrate the hair shaft and strengthen it. This can help reduce breakage and split ends.
    • Damage Repair: Hydrolyzed Rice Protein is thought to fill in damaged areas of the hair cuticle, which can improve the overall health and appearance of hair.


    • Scalp Soothing: Nettle leaves contain certain properties that may help to reduce dandruff and soothe an itchy scalp.
    • Cleansing: Nettle has natural astringent properties that can help to cleanse the scalp and remove buildup.

    Green Tea Extract

    • Controls Sebum Production: Helps regulate excess sebum (oil) production on the scalp. This can be beneficial for those with oily hair or scalp conditions like seborrheic dermatitis.
    • Strengthens Hair: Green tea's antioxidants can help protect hair from environmental damage caused by free radicals, which leads to stronger hair strands and less breakage.

    Don't Forget the Conditioner!

    For an extra boost of moisture and manageability, consider pairing your Embody Nature shampoo bar with a conditioner bar. Made with natural ingredients that complement our shampoo perfectly, these conditioner bars will leave your hair feeling silky smooth and nourished.
