Guest Blogger: Gillie from Ware in Asheville answers the question, "How do you choose what to carry in your store?"
How does Dip Hair Care arrive on so many shelves? Conditioner bars are one of those low-waste products that even seasoned sustainable shoppers will claim “just don’t work on my hair.” And then they try Dip conditioner bars and come to understand that there is as much variation in quality and efficacy in solid hair care as there is in liquid.

Still being impressed by Vanity Metrics? We want you to dip out.
Vanity metrics are like the glitter and glam of the internet world. They may look all sparkly and impressive, but they're not as meaningful as they seem. They lack the juicy details, like the story behind those numbers or whether they actually indicate that a business is: selling stuff, or just giving it away to boost followership, or even just buying bots to give the impression of success. Even virality on tiktok can be purchased pretty easily. Think of it like this: having a gazillion Instagram followers might make a business look like a success, but are people actually buying their products or loving their content?
Got vivid hair color?! Here are some tips & tricks to keep your vivid hair color beautiful with the Dip Shampoo & Conditioner Bars
Let's dive into the best practices for taking care of vivid hair color at home. Not all of us can make it to the salon for frequent touchups so the best we can hope for is to use products that help keep the color in as long as possible. That's where we shine. Our founder, Kate, even made her hair vivid pink during testing & development to make sure these bars were the real deal. So here are her tips to help maintain color vibrancy while using dip shampoo bars and the dip conditioner bar as a hair mask: 1. Firstly, it's crucial to maintain the hair color by washing it less often. As we know, frequent washing fades the color more quickly. So, try to stretch out your washes as long as possible, and when you do wash your hair, use lukewarm or cool water instead of hot. You can use dip shampoo bars that are specifically formulated for colored hair, as they are sulfate-free and gentle on your hair, helping to keep your color looking bold and beautiful.
Fahrenheit 450: Why your heat-styling tools should never exceed 450 degrees
We all know that Fahrenheit 451 tells the story of Guy Montag and his transformation from a book-burning fireman to a book-reading rebel. But we're here to chat about Dip's imaginary prequel: Fahrenheit 450 --a made up story also about heat, and how to still be a rebel & unbottle your routine :) You know what they say, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the styling chair. Honestly, that is the worst advice ever because high heat from your styling tools can do some serious damage to your hair, leaving it dry, brittle, and lifeless. That's right, folks. If you're not careful, you could end up with a head full of frizzled (or is it frazzled?) hair.
What Do Sharks and Olives Have in Common?
There is Squalene and then there is Squalane. There’s a difference. Squalene is maybe the cosmetic industry’s most controversial ingredient at the moment and that’s because it’s possibly one of the deadly as well. Squalene is an oil that comes from the liver of a shark. There are roughly 2.7 million sharks killed per year solely for this ingredient and it’s contributing to the endangerment of an entire species.
What is the best way to use the Dip conditioner bar for each hair type?
What is the best way to use the Dip conditioner bar for each hair type? Hey, what's up folks! It's Kate here, founder and Chief Detangler here at Dip. Some of you ask: How can the Dip conditioner bar work for all hair types?! Some of you ask: Don't I need special ingredients that are specific to my hair type? And to that I say, your hair is personal to YOU, but it isn't special. Hair is chemically similar between different hair types, so in my opinion, dividing our Dip shampoo and conditioner bars into different hair types would be just "marketing". Specifically, I'm gonna share some tips on how to use conditioner bars for different hair types.
Being a Sustainable Persian Business Owner: Celebrating Nowruz and the Cultural Significance of Hair
As a sustainable Persian business owner, Nowruz presents an excellent opportunity to reflect on our practices and ensure that we are operating in a way that is environmentally conscious and socially responsible. I'd like to share the importance of being a sustainable Persian business owner and how Nowruz ties into our cultural heritage as well as the role of hair in Persian history and how it has influenced Persian culture today. We learn through the tradition of Sizdah Bedar where families must gather outside: on this day fields, plains, parks and gardens are filled with families, old and young, who leave their homes to spend the day outdoors, preferably by a river or a stream. It is embedded in our culture that going outside is essential to our happiness & luck for the new year.
How to Choose the Best Conditioner Bar for Curly Hair and the Importance of Shopping Small to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
"I have curly hair so a conditioner bar just won't work for me." We hear this over and over, yet our curly customers are our biggest advocates since the Dip conditioner bar can replace so many plastic bottled products including detangling sprays, leave in conditioners, hair masks, air-dry creams, curl creams, and deep conditioning masks. Conditioner bars have become increasingly popular as a sustainable alternative to traditional liquid conditioners. However, choosing the best conditioner bar for curly hair can be a daunting task... ...especially when you have a graveyard of conditioner bars that you've already tried and been disappointed by. Sound familiar? It usually does.
Dip In With Chaz Howard: Dip Model & Customer
You might recognize Chaz from our hair types page with his Type 4 curls. What you might not know is that Chaz was voted Best Hair in our High School growing up, and it's really not hard to see why. Just look at those curls! Dip: Was there one moment that triggered your move into being plastic free (or less plastic blind) Chaz: Yes, watching countless documentaries of sea animals being tangled in plastic waste, and worst. There’s this one video of a turtle that had a plastic straw stuck in its nose that has stayed with me for a long time. It was then when I made a conscious decision to do better.
