BRIXY Review: Chemical-Free Hair Bars

Did you know it’s possible to swap your liquid shampoo, conditioner, and body wash for solid, chemical-free hair bars & soaps? Let me introduce you to BRIXY.

BRIXY is a US-based company who has created affordable natural shampoo bars, conditioner bars, and body wash bars. Their bars are good for the environment, good for your hair, and good for your health.

In this post I’ll teach you all about BRIXY’s values & ideals, the positives of using bars opposed to liquids, and give you an honest review of their products.

What is BRIXY

6 Reasons You’ll Love BRIXY

1. BRIXY Uses Wholesome Ingredients

Citrus Conditioner Bar Ingredients

BRIXY’s environmentally friendly conditioner bars and shampoo bars are formulated to hydrate and balance your hair. They’re made using clean, natural ingredients like: coconut oil, shea butter, argan oil, cacao seed butter, and provitamin B. They’re also vegan.

Did you know that typical liquid shampoos contain harmful fragrances that can mimic estrogen, cause cancer, damage hair & skin, and even disrupt the reproductive system? A few examples of these ingredients are palm oil, sulphates, phthalates, parabens, artificial colorants and fragrances – none of which you’ll find in BRIXY’s vegan hair bars.

2. BRIXY’s Products are Environmentally Friendly

BRIXY’s environmentally friendly conditioner bars and shampoo bars are just that – good for the planet. When you use BRIXY’s chemical-free hair bars, you can sleep soundly knowing you aren’t contributing the 500 million plastic haircare bottles that end up in landfills each year.

BRIXY bars are packaged in FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council) paperboard meaning the packaging is derived from sustainably managed forests.

After you’re done with the packaging, it can be easily recycled and/or composted.

4. BRIXY’s Chemical-Free Hair Bars are Safe for Colour Treated Hair

Not only are BRIXY’s eco-friendly hair care bars made with wholesome ingredients & priced affordably – they’re also pH balanced which means they’re safe for colour treated hair.

5. BRIXY Makes Affordable Natural Shampoo Bars & Natural Conditioner Bars

Did you know traditional liquid shampoos and conditioners are made of mostly water? BRIXY’s affordable natural shampoo bars & conditioner bars are highly concentrated; they cut out the unnecessary liquid plus they’re less expensive than a standard bottle of liquid shampoo or conditioner. These chemical-free haircare bars will last 2-3 times longer than a standard bottle.

BRIXY bars are also some of the largest bars on the market, meaning they’re a total bang-for-your-buck.

6. BRIXY Bars are Travel-Friendly

These affordable natural shampoo & conditioner bars are compact and long-lasting. This means they’ll take up less space in your suitcase than their liquid counterparts. They’re also solid which means they won’t contribute to the liquid allowance permitted in your carry-on.

BRIXY: Chemical-Free Hair Bars Review

Now for an honest review of the products. I tested the mint/eucalyptus shampoo + conditioner bar and the coconut vanilla body wash.

Shampoo & Conditioner

Each of these eco-friendly haircare bars provided a great lather; the shampoo foamed nicely and the conditioner bar instantly coated my hair in what felt like liquid silk. I’ve tried many other chemical-free haircare bars previously, and BRIXY bars are some of the easiest to use. With other bars I’ve had to s c r u b my hair with the bar which is both time consuming and annoying. You don’t have to “work” to get the lather with BRIXY bars – just wet and apply.

My hair felt very clean and light after using the eucalyptus/mint shampoo. No matter what shampoo you use, I always recommend washing twice for best results – same with BRIXY.

I have a very dry hair type and I found the conditioner bar was nice, but it did not quite provide the moisture I was hoping for. My ends felt a bit dry after using it. To fix this, I tried using the conditioner bar as a leave-in conditioner. After towel drying my hair, I re-wet the bar, lathered my hands and scrunched the ends of my hair. This helped add moisture back into my hair and it felt much softer and more nourished afterwards.

One thing I absolutely loved about the bars were their size. BRIXY’s shampoo and conditioner bars are definitely some of the biggest on the market. This means they’ll last longer than a standard bar.

Translation: these bars are a bang-for-your-buck.

BRIXY Bar Boat

ps – I also love BRIXY’s bar boat which helps keep my bars organized in the shower. The compartments are labelled and they have drainage points which prolongs the bar’s lifespan by keeping them dry after you’re done showering. You can find the bar boat on their website or on Amazon.

Final Thoughts

BRIXY bars are an affordable and more natural solution to haircare. They’re good for the environment, convenient for travel, and safe for colour treated hair which makes them much more versatile than traditional liquid shampoo and conditioner.

You can feel good using BRIXY knowing you’re taking steps to better the planet, your health, and your wallet!

Happy adventuring!

    I tried Brixy shampoo and conditioner for the first time tonight (and was looking online for reviews) as well as new to bar shampoo/conditioner and I’m sold. I have thick (like it’s time for a haircut tomorrow!), gray hair and I really like how well the bars lathered and rinsed, smelled, and made my hair feel. Yay!

      Hi Jeanne, Im so glad to hear you liked the bars! BRIXY definitely does a killer job with the lather and clean feel.

      If this is your first time using bars, you may eventually experience a ‘build up’ as your hair adjusts to them. This is a totally normal part of the bar adjustment process. If you find this happening, usually a quick apple cider vinegar rinse resets everything and leaves your hair feeling fresh and light again 🙂
