Our Company Culture Written from An Employee's Perspective
There’s become an emptiness to "women's empowerment": the tote bag, pins and hashtags aren’t enough. Women supporting women has to be action, has to be networking, referrals, and celebration of successes without feeling like you now “owe” who’s helped you.
No Pink Tax
Most data will support that the pink tax costs a woman an average of 1,351 USD per year in comparison to if a man bought the same quantity. We’re not cool with this discrepancy so we refuse to let it creep into our costs. We have shampoo bars and the best conditioner bar for any gender.
Overseas manufacturers don’t always possess as high of standards in terms of working conditions and workers rights, or putting in environmental protections. We decided, as should others, that this cost was not worth a cheaper price tag. So our bars are made in America. With the reduction in transportation and addition of EPA regulations on companies in the States, producing them here caused a major reduction in our carbon footprint.
After all we did formulate the best conditioner bar for your tresses to be ready to go whenever. But we also understand that sometimes nothing beats a big blow out (or as some of us at Dip love, giant curls) and we usually have to achieve those looks with heat styling. Good thing we added in the ingredients needed to protect your hair on your heat heavy days. In fact we added in a ton of ingredients to nourish your strands and keep them healthy — check them out!
The plight of being a hair snob with young kids. Children don’t know the difference between your high end conditioner and a bottle of bubble bath and nothing hurts worse than having your precious bottles stuff squeezed out into a tub.
Pouring from big bottle of shampoo and conditioner into little (under 3oz) bottle of shampoo and conditioner is not only extra eco-un-friendly but also comes with risks and no rewards. We’ve had crushed bags and burst bottles of conditioner all over our clothes and running out of product just a couple days after we get to our destination being left with drying hotel hair “care” (if you can even call it caring). With those problems in mind, our best conditioner bar became our best travel hack.
An essential for any surf session. I was lucky to have tried Dip before it was available on the market (the perks of being on the inside!) Before paddling out I would dive in the water soaking my hair and soaking the best conditioner bar I have used and coat every strand on my head. It would last me every wave and every wipeout protecting my hair from the salt of the water, the sun beating down, and not a tangle in sight.
How Stressing Out the Environment is in Turn Stressing Out Your Hair
Your hair is also science. Your hair has building blocks and compounds and physical traits to it that differ and react to external factors. These can be physical factors such as "too-tight hair ties", chemical factors like dying, bleaching, and perming, or environmental factors like sun exposure and air pollution.
10 Things Only Girls Who Have Tried Bar Shampoo & Conditioner Will Understand
Bar shampoo and bar conditioner is on the rise. We’re not going to pretend we’re the only ones doing this, but if you’ve tried to hop on the trend in the past there are some things you might understand as much as we do about why not all bar shampoo and conditioner is the same.
The Toxicity of Hustle Culture and What We Can Look Like Instead
But “slow living” is trending up and competing for the lives of the youngest workforce with hustle culture. On one hand we still have mainstream and social media push to “secure the bag”, “get on the grind”, and celebration of workaholism. Then there’s the backlash, the push towards work life balance and a lot of young people are citing European lifestyles, siestas, later starting times, shorter commutes, and the four day work week while still maintaining or even excelling in productivity as their reasons why.
