Dirty Bee Shampoo Bars

Why You Should Try a Dirty Bee Shampoo Bar

Have you browsed through all the offerings on the Just Gorgeous Darling website? If you have, you may have uncovered one of my favorite hidden gems: the Dirty Bee shampoo bar. 

Ever admired my hair in all of my pictures that you see? I’m sharing my best hair secret with all of you: it’s too good to keep a secret!

What Are Shampoo Bars?

Instead of using liquid shampoo, you may want to give these bars a try! Instead of liquid in a plastic bottle, these shampoo bars are solid, and you rub them in your hands to get shampoo on your hands and then through your hair.

These bars are more concentrated forms of shampoo and conditioner. Quick: go look at your shampoo in your bathroom! I’ll be here when you get back.

What was the first ingredient listed on the bottle? 

For most shampoos, that first ingredient is water!

Shampoo bars end up being far more concentrated (so you can use less and it lasts longer) than shampoo you find in bottles. Win-win for everyone!

Benefits of Using Shampoo Bars

There are so many benefits to switching over to shampoo bars, but I will highlight a few.

Less Waste

If you’re looking to live a lifestyle with less waste, then now is your time to cheer. Shampoo and conditioner bars use far less packaging that traditional shampoo bottles. 

Longer Lasting

Shampoo and conditioner bars last longer, because they are far more concentrated than your typical liquid shampoo. These bars can last longer than THREE bottles of your normal shampoo!


Remember how I just said that they are longer-lasting? They are also more cost-effective: long-lasting means that you replace them far less often than you do your typical bottled shampoo.

Salon-Quality Ingredients

I love the Dirty Bee Shampoo bars because they only use salon-quality ingredients! They are pH balanced, vegan-friendly, and luxurious. Even better, they are animal cruelty free!

How to Use Shampoo Bars

Having a hard time imagining using shampoo bars instead of your typical shampoo? 

I got you, girl. 

Use your shampoo bar like you would a bar of soap. Rub it in your hands, under running water. Then, rub your hands through your hair, concentrating on the areas that you know tend to be greasy or dirty (we all know our spots!). 

Then, rinse as usual.

To make your shampoo bar last as long as possible, make sure that you put it in a place in your shower where it is not sitting in water. If it sits in water, it will dissolve, and you’ll be sad.

Three Wardrobe Staples You Can Wear Year-Round

Versatile Wardrobe Basics

Fall is coming, and with it, a wardrobe change. 

You may be poking around your sundresses and your tank tops, looking longingly at your chunky sweaters pushed into the back of your closet. I mean, who doesn’t love a hot chocolate and a cardigan? 

Or, you may be sadly thinking about packing away those brighter, lightweight clothes and trading them in for warmer stuff. 

No matter how you feel about the change of seasons, It’s about time to pack away the light summer essentials, and bring out the warm long sleeves and sweaters. 

Instead of just buying a completely seasonal wardrobe, however, you can be strategic with some of the clothing that you purchase so that you can wear them all year round!

Here are three classic wardrobe staples that you’ll want to make sure you have in your wardrobe that you can use year round, no matter the season!

By the way, have you ever considered creating a capsule wardrobe? These three pieces would create an excellent foundation!

A Perfect Pair of Jeans


This has to be first on the list, because there’s no question about it: I love my Judy Blue Jeans. Goodbye, saggy bottom drawers; hello, perfect denim. 

You’ll wear your jeans year-round, from cooler summer evenings, to chilly January. 

A good pair of jeans will hug your body perfectly and go with basically everything that you pair it with. Want to look dressed up and trendy? Throw on a dark wash pair of jeans, and a blazer. Ready to look relaxed and chill? A basic tee shirt, chunky jewelry, and sandals will do the trick!

A perfect pair of jeans will be part of your year-round wardrobe!

A Basic, Essential Shirt

Essential T Shirt V Neck Regular & Plus Size

You know what I’m talking about. It’s that tee shirt that goes with everything, feels soft and comfortable, and you can dress it up, or dress it down. 

It’s simple, and essentially perfect.

A basic tee shirt is the foundation for easy styling. If you’re looking to get into trying new things, especially accessories, and you’re feeling a little uncertain, then this tee shirt will help you have the perfect set up to let your personality shine with your accessories!

Plus, your shirt will dress up with a nice skirt, or dress down with your favorite pair of jeans – it’s the perfect addition!

See what essential tee shirts are currently available in my shop!

A Warm, Cozy Sweater

Waffle Knit Sweaters regular & plus size

I know, I know – fall is coming, and sweaters are on my mind! But here’s the thing: we’ve all used a sweater year-round. I mean, have you walked into an air-conditioned office lately?


Whether it be black, gray, burgundy, or whatever color you like, your sweater will be a wardrobe staple!  

The best part of a sweater is that you can dress it to whatever season – add a necklace in the spring, or a light scarf, and you’re set! Add a chunky crocheted scarf in the fall, and you’re set!

Check out all the sweaters I currently have available in the Just Gorgeous Darling shop. 

So what do you think?

Once you have all of these wardrobe staples in your closet, you can dress them up and accessorize them with all the seasonal trends! Make sure that you check out the boutique website, and join my Facebook community, because we have new arrivals coming weekly, and with fall coming, you’re not going to want to miss out!

These are some of my favorite wardrobe staples – what would you add to that list? What did I miss that you think every woman should have in her closet?
