Wow! This woman bought a solid shampoo bar and has spoken about it continuously for the 80 washes it lasts

A 26-year-old woman from Clapham has wowed friends and family not only with her commitment to eco friendly personal care but also her inability to shut up about it.

Kayleigh Graham, who has been recycling for over a year now, was swayed into buying a solid shampoo bar to cut down on her plastic usage, but mainly because the over-enthusiastic shop assistant in Lush made her feel like she should and took it to the counter for her.

The bar, which is made of nuts, hemp and soya, has been a talking point for the thirty five days Kayleigh has owned it, making for great value for money so far.

“It’s a little less conditioning than a typical shampoo,” explained Kayleigh, when asked about a topic other than the bar’s efficacy, “so I’m having to spend about twenty extra minutes a day brushing my hair as a result. But what is more important – my hair or the environment?”

She said this rhetorically, but a flicker in her eye gave the impression that she was genuinely not sure.

In response to the conversation moving away from her locks, Kayleigh continued by adding, “if we put aside the landfill, there are still major issues with production and that is why recycling alone isn’t enough.”

When no one contradicted her, she went on to make her closing statements; “the best thing is, I don’t have to worry about insects bothering me because they are attracted to my hair. The great thing about smelling like a hedge is that nothing already living in a hedge notices you!”
