Kelpie Shampoo bar. How does it work?

This pH-balanced solid shampoo bar is made with gentle and biodegradable surfactants that will clean your hair without irritating your scalp. No sulfates or parabens.

How does it care for my hair?

The organic cold-pressed Argan and Jojoba oils gently condition your hair without weighing your hair down. Tiny flecks of dark green you see in the bar are pieces of seaweed. seaweed adds very gentle exfoliation to the skin and scalp. This Kelpie shampoo bar is refreshingly fragranced with lavender and sweet orange essential oils

Why make these shampoo bars?

I want to use a shampoo bar that lathers well, leaves my hair feeling fabulous, and is made using sustainable ingredients that do not damage the planet. Using powerful microscopes at PEMC I have compared the effect of Kelpie shampoo and a competitor shampoo on hair. The results were incredible.

How long will it last?

Approximately 40 washes or as long as 2 standard liquid bottles of shampoo. Kelpie shampoo bar is 50 grams, compact, mighty, and plastic-free. Store the bar somewhere it can dry out between uses. If you’re keeping it in the tin it may not stay totally solid. I keep a kelpie shampoo bar in my swim bag that is in a tin. Put a little water in the tin with the bar, swirl the water around to dissolve some product then use this on my hair.

How to use solid Shampoo?

Rub the bar directly on your hair or you can lather it in your hands and use the lather to wash your hair. Try washing your roots first, rinse, then do another wash all over to thoroughly wash your hair. To make the most out of the conditioning ingredients in the Kelpie shampoo bars try applying some lather on your hair lengths and ends, and leaving it for 1-2 minutes like you would with a traditional conditioner. Leave longer if you need extra conditioning, and then rinse

This shampoo bar doesn’t need an acid rinse and it doesn’t have a transition phase!

  1. Rosalie Fairbairn

    I was really cynical about a shampoo bar and having had a previous experience of one that made my scalp itchy I’m glad I didn’t write them all off before this one!

    I gave this one a try a few months ago and I haven’t looked back! I love how it’s so compact and takes up so little space in the bathroom – it’s really easy to travel with too (in my tin!).

    I find the shampoo gives me a good lather and my hair feels nice afterwards. I am a total solid shampoo convert now, thanks Sophia 🙂

  2. Natasha Simmonds

    I am a big fan of bar shampoos, but many of them dry my curly hair out. I was excited to try Sophia’s new recipe – and I’m SO glad I did.

    The smell is lovely (subtly sweet), the lather is perfect and my hair isn’t dry as a crisp afterwards.

    Cannot recommend this product enough and am planning to buy another once my first is done.

  3. Karen Herbert

    I love this shampoo bar! I had previously tried shampoo bars from other places and was about to give up as I just couldn’t find one that I was happy with until…… the Kelpie shampoo bar was introduced to me! I really love using it as it does give a nice lather and my hair feels gorgeous after.

    I have enjoyed all the products from tappermade and would highly recommend 🤩👍🏼

  4. Emily Jeffery

    I’ve been using shampoo bars for a good couple of years now and have never found one that lathers up just as much as this. It gives a nice level of foam to cover all of the hair making it feel like your having a really good wash. I have super sensitive skin and I am always cautious with trying new products but this one left my scalp feeling nourished – no irritation or dryness. I think I’ve eventually found a bar that is sensitive and foamy and leaves my hair feeling great! Thanks Sophia.

  5. Pamela Ramirez

    I am trying this new shampoo and I am really loving it. The first thing I loved was the smell of it, then when I tried I like it even more. It makes good quantity of foam which allow me to wash my long hair easier. And for the same reason I think is durable as you just need some to make enough foam to wash all your hair. I just genuinely like it. 🙂
    Thank you so much Tapper made!

    I’ve been trying soap bars for years and always ended up going back to refill bottles until I found this one – it foams up in a flash, feels silky and foamy on your hair and leaves it shiny and not flyaway or lank like others do. My son and husband also love it and it’s been great for his psoriasis.

    Great shampoo bars, I’m fully converted to the normal ones TapperMade makes. The smell amazing, are easy to travel with and leave my hair clean and not dry or oily. Love it!

  23. Sara O. (verified owner)

    Small but mighty! Delighted with this product. First time using a shampoo bar and I was amazed at the lather I built up. When I’d used it up, I bought a leading eco-brand alternative shampoo bar from the supermarket thinking that it would be the same high quality. I was wrong, put it aside and immediately re-ordered two more Kelpie bars. There’s no going back now. Just need to convert my husband and teenage children next!

  24. Anon

    This is the best shampoo, bar or otherwise that I have ever used. There is extensive scientific research and a little bit of magic behind this powerful nugget. A tiny amount produces the most luxuriously creamy lather leaving you hair feeling clean, light but not stripped. I chopped my elbow length hair short last summer out of frustration at its poor condition but I think I might be able to grow it long again now. Thank you so much Sophie!

    I love the scent of the shampoo bars. I’ve used a couple of times now and have found I haven’t needed to wash my hair as frequently. My hair feels soft and in good condition. Would definitely recommend.

    I’ve tried loads of different shampoo bars but the kelpie ones are by far the best. Seems to work really well and doesn’t leave a residue and my hair is lovely and shiny after use. Would recommend.

  43. marcin s. (verified owner)

    Excellent product, I love it and my family too. Great scent, bar looks like nature made, fab texture, colour:) Easy to use (you don’t need to open any bottle= less packaging too), bar foams well, that makes washing long hair much easier. Highly recommended. I’m addicted 😉

    Love it as does my daughter

  52. Nangi (verified owner)

    I had been using this shampoo bar exclusively for several months because quite it is quite simply the best. A friend gifted me a well known shampoo bar which contained rice water, promising thicker healthier hair but in fact after one use my hair felt weighed down, greasy and unmanageable and scalp clogged and irritated. I quickly switched back to my beloved Kelpie and my hair immediately felt clean, moisturised, manageable and happy and my scalp can breath again. Thank you Sophia for making THE BEST shampoo of all.

  53. Catherine C. (verified owner)

    This is my second purchase, I love it. It lathers well and lasts me quite a while. Good value for money.

  54. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Best shampoo bar ever!

  55. Jake (verified owner)

    Amazing shampoo, use it every day! As a guy with short hair I’d always used Head and Shoulders, since switching I’ve had less dandruff and my hair feels much softer and healthier.

  56. Sara (verified owner)

    I never use anything but this shampoo. It leaves my hair fresh and bounced every time. The bar lasts for ages and doesn’t break down with water contact. Can’t recommend highly enough! Thank you Tappermade!

  57. Jacqui Hurford (verified owner)

    It lasts so long as you don’t need to use very much. Leaves my hair feeling light and no product build up unlike some other shampoos. I like that I can store in a reusable tim and no plastic.! I use it with tappermades conditioner and I’m converted and don’t want to use anything else in future.

    • Sophia (store manager)

      thanks so much for the lovely reviews, Jacqui.

    Love it! I had tried other shampoo bars before but they made my hair feel a little dry and sticky. This one makes my hair feel soft and it’s really shiny! Would 100% recommend even to those shampoo bar skeptics!

    Lovely product. Leaves hair beautifully soft and manageable

    I really like this bar a lot, works perfectly smells delicious and love it’s rustic aesthetic. I have many bars from different companies and this is the first I would repurchase. Very happy.
