If you're on a journey to living a zero-waste lifestyle, making a few tweaks to your beauty routine should be a top priority since we use these products daily. Your first step? Try switching to shampoo bars. Here's why.

Because of its packaging, opting for a solid shampoo can significantly reduce the use of plastic in your routine because you won't have to dispose of a bottle every time you run out. Shampoo bars also last longer than traditional shampoos and can be used 50-75, even 100 washes per bar. And if you're worried about moisture, don't fret. Switching might even be better for your hair as some shampoo bar brands use less SLS, the lathering agent that cleans the hair but also causes dryness. Instead, these bars are made with healthy oils and organic ingredients to maintain moisture.

Ready to try it out? Here are 10 brands where you can shop for new shampoo bars:
