“Watch out! Bathing Culture made a Shampoo and it cleans well and smells amazing!”

- Lauren

With clean, pristine water in their sightline, Bathing Culture painstakingly developed  a readily biodegradable Kelp Forest Shampoo, replacing oft-used polyquaternium, a bioaccumulating ingredient that is known to help reduce static and frizz, with a water and aquatic life-friendly synergy. Kelp extract, loaded with vitamin C and omega 3, offers essential minerals and nutrients that regenerate the roots, inspire growth and support strength. Seaweed, bay laurel, sweet orange and clary sage smell like sweet ocean spray.

Lather up healthy, shiny, strong hair with this gentle shampoo made from biodegradable, cutting-edge plant-based chemistry and extracts of sea kelp, amaranth and more. Bathing Cultures newest scent, Break Water, smells like diving into 55º Pacific Waters, coastal scrub and crisp ocean air.

Kelp extract is used to help support growth and strength and is rich in vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids. Amaranth seed’s squalene and amino-rich properties have been shown to provide bounce, body and shine. A coconut-based surfactant provides a rich but gentle lather. Apple extract helps provide a feeling of hydration and argan oil delivers hair nutrition with vitamin E, fatty acids and carotens to help support scalp and hair health.

Packaged in 100% recycled #nonewplastic bottles with reusable locking tops.


Wet hair, massage a generous amount throughout hair and into the scalp. Work with fingers into the roots to create lather and clean thoroughly. Rinse.

Incredible shampoo!

It smells SO good, every time I use it I feel transported to paradise. It also makes my hair feel great throughout the day, and doesn't create build-up or weigh my hair down in any way. Love this shampoo so much!

Shampoo from my favorite company!

A new favorite!

I have been using this shampoo since I received it in January’s box, and it has become a new favorite. At first, I preferred the scent of the body wash, but now I like them both equally. I have fine, chin-length layered hair that I wash daily. I rotate between four shampoos, and this is one I reach for more than the others. BC’s shampoo lathers wonderfully, and cleans and rinses very well. I usually have a hard time getting volume in my hair, but I’ve noticed my hair is extra bouncy after I’ve used this shampoo, and it holds the style easily, too. This shampoo also doesn’t dry my hair out. This is a definite repurchase for me!

Smells lovely, so-so for fine hair

I love the scent of this shampoo. It’s unisex, fresh, and feels like I am taking a shower in the woods. I like the texture of it, too. I have fine hair that can easily be weighed down. After a few tries, my hair was consistently weighed down by this shampoo. I can see someone with normal or even curly hair adoring this.

Smells soooo good

I have very long and thick hair, so I use 3 to 4 pumps....and it cleans great!! I will buy this based on the smell alone, sooo divine, can't explain it!
