A few months ago I talked about the shampoo/conditioner bars I use to replace my plastic hair care bottles. Don’t get me wrong I still use them but prefer to use them when I’m traveling. I have a lot of hair and sometimes the bars won’t cut it in my weekly haircare. When I found a completely refillable aluminum bottle for shampoo and conditioner, body washes and more I knew I had to check it out. Could this be too good to be true?
Introducing Plaine Products, environmentally friendly shampoo, conditioner products and more. Started by two sisters, Alison, and Lindsey who were tired of their bathrooms stocked full of plastic hair care bottles. After Alison worked in the Bahamas for 10 years she could see first hand what our plastic habits are doing to the oceans, shores, and roads.
The number of hair care bottles thrown out each year could fill 1,164 football fields.
UGH that is a lot of waste. They knew it was time for a change. Their website shares more about their journey and I highly recommend a read but ordering is as simple as picking out your shampoo and conditioner from the department store shelves.

How easy is that? I loved knowing that I wouldn’t be using any plastic but also we are creating a loop with the products; a circular economy. By sending the hair care bottles back to the facility they are also reducing the number of NEW bottles that are being created.
I choose the mint, rosemary, and vanilla fragrance. We all know how to use shampoo, conditioner, and body wash so I’ll spare you the play-by-play. I will say that the shampoo lathers very nicely and the conditioner is very soft. My hair felt clean with natural ingredients, and the scent was great all over my skin. I wear my hair natural and received so many compliments that it looked full and shiny.
Each product is made free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates and palm oil. Blended with essential oils rather than synthetics. They are vegan and contain non-GMO ingredients, are baby-safe, hypoallergenic and my favorite they support 1% for the planet. Don’t know what this is? Here, you can read about it. You will love that Plaine Products supports this organization!
Absolutely going to continue this subscription myself and love for you to try it out. It takes me a while to use up hair care bottles but I know that I don’t have to go to the shops to pick it up. I can get my refill in an eco-friendly box right to my doorstep.
Plaine Products bottles sold in 2018 prevented more than 11,670 kg of carbon dioxide by eliminating the need for virgin plastic.
An additional 1,805 kg of carbon dioxide was prevented by replacing plastic bottles that would have been sent to landfills.
