I created a natural and Vegan shampoo bar called Solibar… 🌿

Sitting at home one afternoon, I was watching my daughter (one) play with her toys, most of which are made from plastic in one way or another. It got me thinking.

The world we live in today is all about the end result. We choose products for the desired outcome without considering the consequences of these products and furthermore their effect on our health or the environment. 🌿

There are chemical additions to everything we eat, we use, we clean and even we wear. These chemicals are the bad guys. And whilst they have allowed us to achieve a higher form of convenience, they are resulting in a lower form of health.

Born out of the need to find a product that doesn’t contain unnecessary chemicals for my toddler, I created a shampoo bar called Solibar.

Solibar is a natural and Vegan shampoo bar that is designed to moisturise your hair whilst giving you the amazing benefits of natural ingredients.

As a baseline, all of my Solibar’s contain coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil and shea butter. Where they differ is the inclusion of super ingredients like zinc, Alkanet Root, French Pink Clay, and French Yellow Clay – which are all incredible ingredients designed to promote hair growth and keep sensitivities at bay.

The best part – they’re all handmade in Melbourne! Which makes them individually unique but loveable at the same time.

I wanted to create a shampoo bar that was going to:

shampoo your hair in the same way as conventional shampoo 🧖🏼‍♀️

be the best option for healthy haircare & not contain any nasties 🌴

decrease the need for conditioner, by creating a bar that is moisturising 💆‍♂️ 

not contribute to the already increasing rubbish created by plastic bottles 🌿


So, if you’ve thought about making the switch to a healthy haircare alternative – now is the time to do it. Head to the website and check out my (And the pics below)

How I saved my blonde and destroyed my regrowth..

Last week I came across a vital piece of information that I thought I would share.


Before – Frankston Regrowth

When desperation sets in and I look in the mirror and saw what was horrendous regrowth. Every time my hair gets to about seven weeks from blast off, the categorisation of ‘Frankston single mother’ reflects in me in the mirror.

I had heard on the grapevine that there was a way you could dye your hair a ‘Semi Permanent Blonde’. If you can use a colour and a bleach and do a Semi Permanent Brown, then you should be able to do the blonde version.

Alike all hair dying practises, there is always the chance that things will go orange. Which would have been acceptable to high school version of myself, but not today.

So in consultation with my friend Miss Colourist, I headed to the local hair supplies store. For those who know colours, I bought a 9.0 Ash Blonde. When I get foils I usually have a 9.3 Very Light Golden Blonde, which I love, but at risk of turning my whole head gold, Ash was the best option.

Pairing it with the 10 Vol Peroxide, I headed home for the application. The plan was 10-15 minutes on my ends and then 10 minutes on my roots.

Scared, I began the process of colour restoration. I followed my girlfriend’s instructions, but as the dulling of my ends came along I jumped quickly in the shower.

The aim is to have it on there for just enough time so my hair changes past the gold to the blonde, but not too much that my ends dull down with the ash.

Ta da! It worked! I’m back! My hair has completely transformed and it should buy me some more time before the colour. The only difference being that my hair is slightly darker now, and less yellow blonde and more ash blonde.

As any Semi Permanent colour, it should wash out as the process fades. So unfortunately I’ll have to head back to the hairdressers in the next couple of weeks.

Users beware: this might not work for you. More than likely you will end up with orange hair. It worked for me because my hair has no red pigmentation and I am fairly light on the roots. I would imagine if you already have a variety of colours in your hair, and you try to dye it, you could end up with green or orange hair. The point entirely was to share my secret.

“Make every application count.”
