~1~ as a daily conditioner:

  • Glide bar over wet hair and massage in.
  • Leave on for 1-3 minutes, rinse well.
  • Allow the bar to dry between uses.

~2~ as a leave-in conditioner:

  • Wet bar and massage a small amount onto your fingertips.
  • Apply to ends of hair and any frizzy areas to calm and nourish.

~3~ as a deep conditioning hair mask

  • Melt a small portion of the conditioner bar over low heat.
  • Once warmed and melted, whisk in a 2-3 tsp of water to create a creamy hair mask. For extra dry hair, you can add a dab of whipped body butter to the recipe too!
  • Apply to wet hair. Wash out after 30 minutes.

Natural Conditioner Bars are Eco-Friendly & Travel-Friendly

Our solid conditioner bars are packaged in a recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable glassine bag. When used as an after-shampoo conditioner, each bar is the equivalent to about 2 bottles of traditional liquid conditioner (minus the plastic bottle waste, of course). Bonus for travel hounds: you can simply pack your bar in a waterproof container (dry between uses). Add in our shampoo bars and tooth suds for a completely liquid-free travel toiletry set.

    Repurchasing. This is my second bar of conditioner. It lasts a long time and my hair feels so clean. I love not using plastic bottles. Saving the world one wash at a time 🙂

    I have been using Alo Goods soap for several years, and just ordered a conditioner bar to try. It’s AMAZING. My (bleached and dyed) hair loves it, and it’s super easy to pack for traveling. I’m a permanent convert, and when I run out of shampoo, I’ll be adding the shampoo bars to my repertoire as well.

    This is my favorite conditioner bar. I have tried others in the past but I felt like I had to spend so much time attempting to get conditioner off of the bar and into my hair. I have curly hair so it needs a lot of conditioner naturally, and this conditioner bar works very well at making it soft and healthy. Love it.

    This is the first bar that has 100% worked for my hair. I’ve tried four other brands and found my hair to be snarly or greasy looking. This bar works perfectly for my (very) long, fine hair and leaves it brushable, clean and great smelling. Thank you!

    Not only does it make me happy to reduce my plastic use, but this conditioner leaves my hair softer than any other conditioner I’ve used. It also seems to take less time to cover my hair than it does with liquid conditioner-a huge bonus when your hair is down to your waist! The only downside is that it runs out more quickly than a liquid equivalent of the same price.

    Hair type: long (three feet) with oily scalp… I would give this product 10 stars if I could. This is the best conditioner I’ve used in my ENTIRE LIFE, no exaggeration. Barely any of the product leaves my hair feeling like silk. I was amazed during my first use, I literally said “wow no way” out loud in the shower after using it ?? I will definitely be buying more when this bar runs out. Best money I’ve spent in a long time.

    I am in love with this conditioner bar! It has a subtle scent, a little goes a long way and it leaves my hair soft. Summers can be humid up here in the North East and frizz is never a good look. I simply wet bar and rub a bit between my hands and rub into frizz zones. Works like a dream. I have nothing plastic in my shower and it’s very freeing. Thank youfor a great product.

    I thought it might run out quickly or not work as good as my conditioner before but I am a week in and it works pretty good keeping my hair soft and is not going as fast a I thought it might. I paid up to $10 for the conditioners I was using before that was in a plastic container so it is not that much more expensive and reduces my plastic waste. It came in wax paper.?

      Glad you liked the conditioner Vanessa! Yes, it’s great for reducing plastic (what an awesome side effect) and the packaging is compostable too! It’s called glassine paper. It’s not waxed or chemically finished. It’s made air, water, and grease resistant by “supercalendering” (making the fibers lay down in a specific way).

      We’ll stop geeking out on paper, and do a little happy dance for your awesome hair!

    I have long, thick, naturally curly dry hair. Alo Goods is the first conditioner bar I have ever tried. After the first use I was hooked! My hair felt silky smooth and so soft I was blown away. No conditioner has ever done this great of a job for me. I even tried it as a leave in conditioner and I had soft bouncy curls all day long! I have since tried other natural conditioner bars and none of them have given me as great of results. I am hooked on Alo Goods hair conditioner bar and hope that they never stop making it and never go out of business. My hair would be lost without it! I do wish the price point was cheaper and the size bigger, but I understand the reasons why. Neither of those reasons will ever stop me from purchasing the conditioner bars, because it’s all very much worth it! I will say that the bar lasted longer than I expected and a little goes a long way, and this is coming from someone with long hair . Thanks Alo Goods!

    I LOVE this conditioning bar. So glad I am done with bottles. I thought I was going to have to sacrifice the look of my hair to go bottle free, but I am so happily wrong. It makes your hair very soft and detangled but it does not weight down your hair (I have very fine thin hair so this is important) I think it even gives my hair a little more body. Thank you! I will be buying more!

    At first I was overwhelmed by the lavender scent, and worried that my hair would smell strongly after use, but the scent really doesn’t persist unpleasantly, and the conditioner bar works brilliantly! Following the shampoo bar/apple cider vinegar rinse/conditioner bar sequence leaves me with soft, manageable, frizz-free hair (and the vinegar smell also doesn’t stick around). I’m totally hooked, and so happy to kick one more plastic container out of my life.

    Really love this conditioner. I have super curly, course hair. This leaves my hair soft and not frizzy. The conditioner does not weigh my hair down like other conditioners.

    Left my hair really soft and smooth, but it also clogged the pores on the back of my neck (something that has never happened to me before). I’ve been making sure to clean the back of my neck after I shampoo and condition, but I still have pimples right in my hair line. I’m assuming this is because of the oils in the conditioner bar. I also thought this bar was small for the price (almost half the size of the shampoo bar I received–and I use a lot more conditioner on my long hair than shampoo) but so far it is lasting pretty well. I’ve been using it to shave my legs and it works really well for that. I won’t be buying this again after I use it up because of the skin irritation on my neck.

    been using it for a couple of weeks now and i LOVE it. my hair feels nice and soft. i have wavy/curly hair that usually needs to have a ton of leave in product applied to keep it from becoming a frizzy mess. this cut it down to small amount of just 1 product. also finding that i am not needing as much flat iron time. may be totally worth the price….just need to see how long it’ll last, so there maybe 1 more update

    So extremely happy I stumbled upon this shop’s conditioner bar. Had been using Lush’s conditioner bar and it was extremely difficult to use especially with my thick curly hair. This bar immediately goes silky smooth once it touches water which makes it so easy to glide through the hair. Woke up this morning and I had curls I never knew I had. Purchased 5 more after using it once because it was that much better than anything I’ve ever tried (including liquid conditioner). So appreciative of the shop owner and her skills!

    This is very effective! I have hair that is very long, fine, and straight, and this does a good job of leaving it hydrated. It takes more time and care to detangle with it than my previous conditioner, but it still works well on my hair, doesn’t leave it too weighed down or dry.

    My hair is about 14-17” long and naturally curly. I was very skeptical about this conditioner bar, but it is amazing. I will finally be able to stop buying shampoo and conditioner in plastic bottles. Woo hoo!

    Love, love, love this! Best conditioner, bar none. My hair’s always been dry – on good days it’d stay straight, on bad days it’d totally frizz out. A couple of swipes of this unassuming, sweet smelling conditioner bar and it’s like I just walked out of the salon. Without all the harsh chemicals. Honestly wasn’t expecting much from a conditioner bar, but this may be the only conditioner for me going forward. Thanks AloGoods!! Also, shipping was superfast. Thoroughly pleased.

    If any of you have tried LUSH products. Then its time to try this shampoo and conditioner bar. My hair is long but fine and thin. But, its also high porosity. This has been such an amazing bar to use. Its very concentrated and a little goes so far. This conditioner bar will last me a very long time. It also smells amazing. I cant wait to try other products from AloGoods.

    Loved it! I have very curly hair and usually get sucked in to buying 20-something different hair products for managing my hair and trying to take care of it. I used the conditioner bar in the shower and afterwards as a leave in conditioner and it works great! Along with the little trial shampoo included and doing a ACV rinse, my curls are very well defined and moisturized, and my hair is doing better on day 2 and 3!

    This was my first solid conditioner purchase. Needless to say, I was skeptical. But I am now fully converted. This little puck is wonderful. It was smaller than I imagined, but seems to last quite a while. Perfect for my greasy scalp/dry ends I have going on. Perfect for summer when sun and wind are at its worst in west/central Texas. Also works well as a leave-in conditioner after normal shampoo/condition and rinse, eliminating another of my plastic contained products. Scent is refreshing, but not overpowering and hardly noticeable once my hair dries. My hair is always silky soft and I couldn’t be happier with this product. You won’t regret purchasing this. P.S.- It also was left for 2 days in my mail box in 100F heat and did not melt/deform at all. Impressive.

    I’ve used this conditioner bar several times and I love it! It lathers up just enough to glide through your hair easily and not pull on it like some conditioning bars can do. Plus the sample lavender soap was amazing! I’ll definitely be ordering both again!

    I know a lot of people are really into @lushcosmetics, but after doing some research for myself I am wary of some of their ingredients (but kudos to them for being vegan and doing good things for the environment otherwise). I found a better-ingredients-for-you alternative, but I wanted to really test out the shampoo and conditioner bars I purchased from @shopalogoods back in January before posting about them. Of course I love that these options are nearly zero waste (minus some plastic for the tags and parchment packaging that I could find another use for) but I was surprised by the conditioner bar more than anything – it detangles my hair better than any liquid conditioner ever has! And that saves even more plastic and money because I don’t need to buy detangler ever again. ✨

Natural Hair Care

Although not tested as color-safe, being sulfate and paraben-free is known to be more suitable for colored hair.

Many of our customers color their hair and they love our shampoo, conditioner, and hair tea. Our products are formulated to be safe but will react differently with your unique hair.

  • The conditioner bar will not strip your hair color.
  • The hair tea may highlight or enhance your hair color.
  • Some customers find that the shampoo bar brightens their natural hair color. Most customers who dye their hair report no change when using our natural products…except for the ones who report color lasting longer due to decreased washings!
  • We suggest trying the product on the underside of your hair if color-treated, before using on your entire head.

Our Conditioner Bars do not “lather”, they are not soap. They activate with water, creating a silky feeling “cream” and that is what you massage into your hair. Remember… a little goes a long way!

Read more tips and info on our conditioner bars here.

Everyone’s hair type is unique, so you may not need to use an ACV rinse. Whether or not you need to use an apple cider vinegar (ACV) rinse depends on a few things as well:

  • Your water: Hard water makes it more difficult to rinse natural shampoo from your hair. If you have hard water, an ACV rinse will help wash out the shampoo and dirt from your hair. Our family has homes with very hard water, and we opted to add a filter to our shower heads. Kandra, our founder, also uses an ACV rinse as she has very long hair.
  • Hair length: Those with short hair will find that they do not need to rinse with vinegar. Their hair is short and much easier to rinse.
  • If you’re prone to tangles: ACV rinses often help with tangles by helping the hair shaft to close back up after washing with shampoo bars.
  • Build-up and Residue: Shampoo bars are mild and may not remove residue from your hair like detergent shampoos. If you use additional products (like commercial conditioners, gels, or other styling agents) and ACV rinse will help remove the build-up and residue they leave behind.

You can also boost the conditioning and nourishing power of and ACV rinse with our herbal hair & scalp tea.

Short Answer: It depends on how often it’s used, and if it’s kept dry between uses.

When used at the sink for handwashing, a bar of our handmade soap will last 4-6 weeks or more. This assumes that the bar will be placed on a soap dish that allows the water to drain away from the soap, giving the soap a chance to dry out between uses. You can read more on extending the life of your soap here.

When used in the shower, a bar of soap will typically last between 3-5 weeks. This assumes that the bar is exposed to water longer than at the sink, and then multiple people are using the same bar to wash head to toe.

  • A bar of Tooth Suds typically lasts for 3 months!
  • A Shampoo Bar typically lasts 2-6 months (depending on how many times you wash your hair, and how long your hair is).

Compared to commercial “soaps”, natural soaps are normally softer as they retain their natural glycerin (commercial soap production removes the glycerine to sell as a separate product). Our soaps are also free from artificial hardening chemicals, synthetic waxes, or free alkali.

While they are small, they are super concentrated. That means there is more there than it appears.

One Conditioner Bar will last 40-50 uses including all the ways to use it, which are explained below.  Yes, other Hair Conditioner Bars on the market are larger, but most of them contain more oil and do not last as long. Larger bars have more surface area, which means more of the bar is exposed to water and gets washed down the drain when used. 

One of the biggest tips we can give you to extend the life of your Conditioner Bar is to keep it dry between uses.

  • They are mall on purpose (it helps it last longer)
  • Each bar provides 40-50 uses…
  • That’s about 4-8 weeks or more depending on how often you use it
  • About the equivalent to 2-3 bottles of traditional conditioners

My recipe is 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar to 4 cups water. I mix up 4 cups of the rinse in a large bowl and take it into the shower with me. Then after the first rinse, I dip my hair into it, squish the mounds of hair around, pour the rest over my head. and rinse it all out.

If you have short hair, you can make a smaller mix and put it in a squeeze bottle for easier application.

You can also infuse herbs in the vinegar to make a custom rinse for your hair. Simply add dry herbs of your choice tot he vinegar, and then let them steep for 2-4 weeks. Our herbal hair and & scalp tea is a perfect compliment to ACV rinses.

Here are a few hebs to consider (not an exhaustive list by anymeans!)

  • rosemary has long been used to condition and to deepen hair color
  • chamomile can highlight blonde or light brown hair
  • calendula conditions and nourishes the scalp
  • lavender, thyme, witch hazel, and yarrow will help with oily hair
  • nettles can help control dandruff and scalp issues
  • horsetail helps with brittle hair and conditioning

Washing your hair with a natural shampoo bar is very similar to using commercial detergent shampoo bars. The basics are to lather up, massage through hair and scalp, then rinse. With a natural product, there are a few other tips though:

  • Rinse well –  we recommend rinsing for at least a full minute to ensure that you rinse out all of the shampoos.
  • Don’t promote tangles – There’s no need to pile your hair on your head and tangle it all up. Instead, massage through your hair starting at the scalp. Use your fingertips to cleanse your scalp, then work your way down to the tips.
  • Don’t over wash – Hair doesn’t need to be washed every day (unless your daily activities get your hair dirty every day). Kandra, our owner and formulator, washes her hair two to three times a week.
  • Follow with the complete Alo Hair Regimen to lushly soft and natural locks – Cleans with a natural shampoo bar, Clarify with an apple cider vinegar rinse, and Condition with a natural conditioner bar.

Products labeled with a temperature-sensitive notice are designed with ingredients that melt around body temperature. Especially in the summer months or in hot climates, these products can change in texture and consistency while in transit.

  • To protect your natural products in the early spring, through summer and late fall, select “Temperature Sensitive Shipping” at checkout. Your order will ship in our 100% compostable padded shipping insert.
  • If temperature-sensitive products arrive melted, we won’t be able to replace or refund them.
  • Once temperature-sensitive products arrive, keep in a cool spot away from direct sunlight.

Our hair conditioner bars will be just fine 99.9% of the time as they need moisture to fully dissolve and be ready to apply to your hair. However, the heat of summer shipping can cause them to soften and “squish” a bit in transit. They will firm back up in about 30 minutes at room temperature.

Want to melt your conditioner bar on purpose? It makes an amazing hair mask!

Use as a Deep Conditioning Hair Mask: Melt a small portion of the Conditioner Bar over low heat. Once warmed and melted, whisk in 2-3 teaspoons of water to create a creamy hair mask. Apply to wet hair and wash out after 30 minutes. If you have extra dry hair, you can add a dab of our Whipped Body Butter into the recipe.

Handcrafted with a blend of natural oils and herbs, the Alō Natural Hair regimen is formulated to cleanse and nourish your hair for truly beautiful locks.


Alō Shampoo Bars are formulated to gently cleanse hair with all-natural oils and organic butters, with organic and wild-crafted botanicals. Simply lather up the bar, wash, and rinse. Allow bar to dry between uses to extend the life of the bar.


After each wash, clarify your hair with an apple cider vinegar (ACV) rinse. Mix 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar with 2-3 cups of clean water. Pour over your hair to rinse away any remaining impurities and reduce frizz. For extra conditioning and scalp nourishment, infuse your ACV rinse our Herbal Hair & Sclp Tea.


Alō Conditioner Bars provide natural conditioning for silky tangle-free locks. Simply glide bar over wet hair and massage in. Leave on for 1-3 minutes, rinse well. Allow bar to dry between uses. Can also be used as a leave-in conditioner and a deep conditioning hair mask.

For some, going natural with hair care products may result in a “detox” or breaking-in period. As you start to use natural products, your hair chemistry will start to change and adapt to the new natural environment. Some individual will notice an increased production of sebum (the body’s natural waxy oil used to protect hair and skin) which can result in an oily scalp and hair. As you continue to use natural hair care products your body will begin to balance its sebum production. This can take around 2-4 weeks but will vary for each individual.

For hair with build-up from prior hair routines or excess sebum: Mix 1 tablespoon baking soda with ¼ to ½ cup water. Work the mixture into your scalp and hair. Rinse well and clarify with an apple cider vinegar rinse. Use this high-intensity cleansing option no more than once every 6 weeks to avoid stripping hair of its natural oils.

Here are more tips dealing with the transition period and adjusting to natural shampoo bars.

Shampoo bars are soap, specifically formulated for hair.

All additives are aimed at nourishing your hair and the bar is formulated for extra thick lather to help you wash out dirt and oils. And as an added bonus, a shampoo bar does not require plastic bottles that could end up in a landfill.

Here’s an article we wrote explaining the difference between shampoo bars and commercial shampoo detergents. You might be shocked to learn what’s really in commercial shampoo.

Choosing a shampoo bar that’s a good fit for your hair will vary based on your hair and body chemistry. We recommend trying each of our bars to find the best fit for you. Kandra (our founder) uses The ACV bar as her go-to bar and uses the Coconut Tea Bar 1-2 times a month to help deal with her hard water issues.

Our original shampoo, The ACV Bar, is a great place to start. It’s balanced for most hair types, is unscented, creates a wonderful lather, and is our “go-to” bar.

Our Coconut Tea Bar makes a great wash for those with hard water, oily hair/scalp, and dreadlocks. It has a light scent from Cedarwood, Lavender, and Lemongrass essential oils, and outperforms any bar in hard water conditions. Note: as with all of our scented products, the scent is light and not overwhelming.

Fun fact: our shampoo bars make great body bars too!
