Solid shampoos have been around for a while now, and even though I don’t hate them, I’ve never found one that I really, really liked. Still, I’ve kept giving them a try every now and then. From Lush and other small handmade shops… to now, Biovène. Today, I’m going to be talking about their Pink Heaven Shampoo and Conditioner combo, which is said to make our hair “heavenly soothing” and deliver some “hair goals”. I will also show you the before and after. Keep reading!
Biovène is an innovative cruelty-free brand from Barcelona, Spain (my hometown!). All of their products are either vegetarian or vegan, and I love that they’re very transparent about their formulations and how they try to be as sustainable and affordable as possible.
As a result, their newest range of shampoos and conditioners come in a little cardboard box (no plastic) and they last up to one year after being out of the box, and three inside of it. Plus, they are biodegradable and free of Parabens, Silicone, Phthalates, Palm oil or Sulfates. They are also safe for coloured or treated hair, which I can attest they are.
‘Pink Heaven’ In-A-Bar Shampoo
First of all, let’s talk about the shampoo. Quarantine has been no good to my hair, and it showed – it got really dry, especially in the ends, and it was so messy and frizzy all the time. I looked for a different type of products and styles, but none of them worked. However -and there’s proof below-, this shampoo worked wonders for me.
It foams like a liquid shampoo and can be worked on the hair and scalp really easily. That’s something that I missed in other solid shampoos, honestly. I’ve also been using a shower hairbrush (from YesStyle, which I talked about here) with it, and I think that’s part of why I’ve been loving the product as much. This Biovène collection also counts with a similar one!
‘Pink Heaven’ In-A-Bar Conditioner
When it comes to solid conditioners, my experience has been even worse than with shampoos. You never know how much you’re applying by running it through the hair, but it doesn’t feel like much usually.
The same thing happens with this conditioner, unfortunately, because it’s hard to get much product out. However, there’s a huge difference when I rinse it off, it is much softer! So it does work though, even if it seems like I’m applying very little product.
Before and After
- I took the photo on the left (before) after the last wash with the shampoo I’d been using. I didn’t plan on liking these products so much I’d make a post about them, which is why there is no proper before pic, but you get the idea. My hair was messy, frizzy, had practically no shine, and it didn’t feel good at all.
- The right picture (after) was taken right after using the shampoo for the first time in days -I’d been using a different shampoo for a few days-, and let me tell, you, my hair looked and felt wonderful. The frizziness was gone for the most part and it felt super smooth, with my natural waves/curls back.
The pictures speak for themselves, and I’d only used the products once! I’m loving both. I think the solid shampoo is the protagonist here, but it’s really worth giving them a try together. My hair looks better than it has since quarantine started.
Moreover, the products are not only great quality-wise, but their formulation is also good for the environment and they’re an amazing alternative for plastic bottled shampoos. And the verdict is…
The only reason why I’m not giving this product 5 out 5 roses is the conditioner. It’s hard to get the product to be visible, but it works anyway. The shampoo is a clear 5/5 and the reason why I created this post – I didn’t plan on doing it when I bought these!
Have you tried solid hair products? Is there any that you really like? Thanks for reading me, and I hope to see you in the next one!
