What is a shampoo bar?
Shampoo bars are just solid bars of soap made specifically for washing hair. Mfano sabuni ya kuogea kuna ya kipande na gel, na shampoo pia ndio hivyo kuna ya maji na ya kipande.
Are shampoo bars the best shampoos for your kipilipili?

Leaves hair soft: Shampoo bars leaves your hair soft and moisturized and allows your hair to retain color.
Ideal for travelling: It really annoys when you have to buy travel size bottles just to store your liquid shampoos. However, shampoo bars are convenient for use travelling or at the gym as they won’t leak as the liquid shampoos and you will adhere to travel carry-on rules.
Cost effective: Shampoo bars are modest in size affordable and can last you for months.
