Did you know that over 552 million shampoo bottles could end up in landfills each year, and only 1 in 5 people consistently recycle bathroom items? Single-use plastics, including shampoo bottles, end up producing 300 million tons of wasteful plastic each year! That is a lot of unnecessary waste.
Enter Unwrapped Life. Unwrapped Life was started in 2016 in Calgary, Alberta. Unwrapped Life was inspired by a desire to help the planet by cutting down on common single-use items and excessive packaging waste.
Unwrapped Life now has a complete line of zero-waste shampoo and conditioner bars with all the quality of traditional shampoos and conditioners, without the extra plastic packaging.

In this guide, we’ll focus on all of the different Unwrapped Life shampoo and conditioner bars to help you find the right kind based on your personal needs.
How To Use Unwrapped Life Shampoo and Conditioner Bars
We understand that switching to a totally different kind of shampoo and conditioner can be intimidating, but it’s much easier to use than you might think!
For Unwrapped Life shampoo bars, simply massage it through your hair until the desired lather is reached, then rinse it thoroughly. Follow it up with conditioner by starting at the scalp and massaging the bar through your hair to the ends. You should feel the ‘slip’ of the conditioner in your hair when you rinse it thoroughly. You can also reapply the Unwrapped Life conditioner bar to the ends of your hair and leave it in as a detangler.
