CANADIAN SHAMPOO BARS
Before we get into our shampoo bar shopping guide that’s broken down by province, we wanted to share our personal favourite choice with you.
Our top pick and the shampoo bar that we personally use on a weekly basis is from Pure Anada. We love it because it lathers the same as traditional shampoo and doesn’t leave our hair feeling heavy or dirty like we’ve experience with other bars.
It comes in six scents and uses but our favourite so far is the cooling peppermint and rosemary. We know it looks a little interesting but trust us, this is a great shampoo bar.
