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.
What's your hair care attachment style?!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my hair. But when I know wash day is coming up, I mentally prepare myself. My hair texture requires a gentle hand and time to pre-poo, wash, condition (I leave it in for at least 30 minutes. . . I use this as a snack break), rinse, and style with my various curly creams and potions. I need to have a patient hand when detangling and a line-up of podcasts for the entire process.
Small Business Spotlight: Dip in with Rise Up Retreats & Kassia Meador
Women friendships (and the shared passions that go with them) are an untapped power source in our industry. These types of friendships can spark some amazing things, and going forward, Kassia and I are ready to put those to good use. So this is the meet-cute story of how Dip was built with human connection, and not corporate emails, conference tables, & phone-tag. We invented a new kind of "board meeting". We met with surfboards in the wild: your friendly neighborhood Dipette, Kassia Meador, and the badass crew from Rise Up Retreats.
No hair texture left behind: creating an all-textures welcomed culture
Dip deserves a slow clap moment, because it’s about time that there’s a quality, sustainable product that is good for your hair and the environment. Let’s keep in mind that until recently, sustainable beauty was not very colorful (literally and figuratively) in how it was marketed. Aside from crunchy packaging that came in fifty shades of beige, there was a lack of diversity in the faces and hair textures we saw representing these beauty brands.
What We Know About Those Chemicals in Your Beauty Routine & if They’re Actually Bad for You
All of Dip’s products are made by an incredible chemist, someone who has been in this industry and studied for years. Every ingredient was obsessed over and carefully considered when creating our shampoo and conditioner bars. It’s why we have the best conditioner bar and bar hair care that actually works! Performance was our top priority and we were only able to do it through the help of chemistry and scientifically backed ingredients.
Dip Responsibly, Why We Decided to Stay Authentic and are Deliberately Not Under the Influencer
We want someone to rave about our product because we have the best shampoo bar and the best conditioner bar on the market, not because we paid them to tell people we’re the best. And if they feel that way and want to pitch to us a social media campaign, the photography with our product, art, etc. we would LOVE to hear them out on that level.
The Secret Hidden Plastic That Lots Of Eco-Friendly Brands Don’t Want To Admit To
Our goal is to get you into small stores that do not accept palletized goods. That means locally-owned, small-scale, passionately-driven businesses! Sure, we make less money when we send you to stores instead of buying directly from our site, but that’s cool with us because we figure once we get you into a small store, you’ll notice that the experience is better.
Here’s Why Surf Hair Isn’t as Dreamy in Real Life as it is in Photographs
The Dip Sun Shield is like sunscreen for your strands. This preventative measure has helped with hair growth as well since it isn’t breaking off at the bottom any more I’m not losing my length faster than it’s growing. This means I’m on my way to that dreamy surf hair we all know and love.
Type 3 Curly Hair
Dip is the best conditioner bar for perfect curls because it also doubles as a very moisturizing leave in conditioner. Curlies, we absolutely kept you in mind during development, so don't you fret! For some (not all) of our customers, they were even able to ditch their plastic bottled curl cream completely!
Type 2 Wavy Hair
Type 2 hair comes with the benefit of not to oily and not to dry. The perfect mix for healthy hair. The S shape is determined by how many bonds are formed in between the keratin proteins that make up your strands of hair. We have tested our dip conditioner bar on all hair types and we are still convinced that it is the best conditioner bar on the market.
