My skin and scalp started reacting to regular shampoos (even the most “natural” “gentle” “pure” formulas out there), so I switched to soap-based shampoo bars. I had a go-to but they switched their formula... was on the search for months trying all different kinds, and this is my absolute favorite! I’m super sensitive to fragrances too (like headache and sick to my stomach sensitive, but the mint/tea tree is so tolerable!). My husband even commented on how healthy, thick, and shiny my hair looks after using this for a week. THANK YOU! Please make this product forever.
TALLOW SHAMPOO BAR (4.5 oz) - Soap Based, Zero WasteAdd to Wishlist
Zero waste natural hair care is here! Our Tallow Shampoo is packaged in a biodegradable wrap and crafted using traditional soap-making techniques. We make them with purposeful and nourishing ingredients to deeply cleanse your hair and scalp.
Let the simple nature of these Shampoo Bars surprise you while you enjoy knowing they haven't contributed plastics and unnecessary chemicals to our oceans.
To use, wet hair and Shampoo Bar. Lather with your hands first and then apply bar directly to hair, lifting sections of hair as you go along to thoroughly massage shampoo into scalp. Rinse thoroughly! Follow with our Herbal Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse* and/or our Hair Conditioner Bar.
Available in Unscented, Mango-Tangerine, and Shrub (rosemary-cedarwood).
Be sure to store your Tallow Shampoo Bar on a soap saver or sponge for its longest life.
*Because our Shampoo Bars are technically soaps, the pH is higher than the detergents in commercial shampoo. For the softest, most manageable hair, it helps to use a vinegar rinse to reduce pH and flatten hair cuticles. If you opt not to purchase ours, it is easy to make a suitable one at home: mix one part apple cider vinegar to one part water in a quart sized container. Pour over hair right after rinsing out shampoo. Then follow with a very quick, cool water rinse. Our Hair Conditioner is highly recommended, as it smooths out well-clarified hair.
New to using solid Shampoo? When transitioning to a natural solid Shampoo Bar like ours, your hair may feel weighted or waxy at first. That's because silicone from synthetic shampoo is lifting from your hair and scalp and natural sebum production is adjusting. This waxy feeling will go away after a few days, however, it can take a few weeks for this transition period to occur. We generally recommend only washing your hair 2-3 times per week.
For faster results, mix 1-2 tsp. of bentonite clay with apple cider vinegar to form a paste-like mask. Apply to scalp and allow it to completely dry. Rinse with warm water. If you prefer, we have one available for purchase here. Our Dead Sea Mask applied to scalp may work the same. Be sure to follow the directions in the product description.
Note: Hair care is highly individual. This type of shampoo is not an ideal product for everyone. If it doesn't work well for your hair simply use as an awesome soap for your body!

I ADORE this tallow bar! I got one bar in March that has lasted me for a long time! [4 months] The ingredients in it were similar to the homemade no-poo recipe I was already mixing up once/week, except adding in moisturizing tallow to the mix. If you do not do a rinse using ACV or their Hair Rinse, your hair will feel waxy after just this shampoo because the PH of your hair is not balanced. My hair has lightened up after using this (yay!), looks super healthy, and is complemented on often. I make my own herbal hair rinse as it is similar to Buffalo Gal's, but having a tallow shampoo bar is so helpful for my limited time!
This bar makes my hair and scalp feel so clean! I'll use it on days when I've had a good workout because regular shampoo doesn't get my hair clean enough. It's great for your body as well, just don't apply it to your nether regions. That skin is a bit too sensitive, just trust me lol
Doesn't have a lot of lather, but it did clean my hair. Rinsed very well.
This was my first time using a shampoo bar, but I wanted to try it because I like the ingredients. It left my hair feeling really soft and clean and not weighed down/waxy. The scent mint-tea tree scent is lovely.
I love tallow so I decided to try this and I definitely like how natural it is however I have noticed it leaves a waxy layer on my hair that makes it hard to brush though and weighs my hair down but I will continue to use and see if my hair adapts to something so natural
This is a family hit! We have been looking for a natural shampoo that WORKS with ingredients we like. Well, our search is over! This shampoo bar leaves our hair feeling clean and soft. The scent (tangerine) is not overpowering either which is a big plus for us. Thank you Buffalo Gal!
I have mostly been using this shampoo bar to wash my hair for the past three months. It's easy to use, and it cleans well without drying my hair. The bar will last for a very long time. I have thin, fine hair that I color with henna, so I appreciate a natural shampoo without citrus oils (which will strip the henna).
I have used shampoo bars for years and really like them. I was drawn to this bar because of the ingredients. I have been really pleased with this bar. The texture is nice and it lathers well for a shampoo bar. My hair feels great after using this bar, very soft and smooth. It has moisturized my scalp really well and the dry skin on my scalp is mostly gone. I like that it does not have a scent.
