Fenugreek and Orris Root to treat the scalp and hair naturally!

This very mild solid shampoo contains two natural powders known to benefit our hair and scalp: Orris root powder and Fennugreek seed powder. Orris root powder soothes the scalp and fights dandruff. Fenugreek seed powder stimulates hair growth, strengthening and nourishing hair for healthy and shiny hair. We've also added broccoli oil, a natural softener that shapes curls and tames frizz. 

This shampoo solid contains no essential oils and has a pleasant, herbal scent.


approx. 2.5 oz (71 g)


The solid shampoo may surprise you at first, because of our habit of using liquid shampoo, and yet it couldn’t be simpler! Wet the scalp and hair and solid shampoo bar, then massage your head and hair (no need to press hard) until it lathers. Once you have a good lather, massage with your hands and rinse thoroughly. Store the solid shampoo bar in a dry place.

Look no further

I was interested in trying the solid shampoo from an environmental perspective and also because I am planning a backpacking trip and need to keep the pack light. I was not sure which shampoo to try so I wrote to these gentleman and explained that I had naturally wavy/curly , textured hair and I wanted something calming and anti frizz. They promptly gave me two options and after trying the plain and simple shampoo I do not need to look further. I see there is a new conditioner and plan to try this too, although I don't need it per se.... this in and of itself is miraculous! I am so happy to have such a quality company with such great service right here in Maine.

great shampoo

This shampoo bar smells wonderful and also works! It makes my hair feel so soft, yet clean. I am looking forward to a bar conditioner even though you probably don't need any conditioner with this product.

Love this bar!!

It smells good, but not perfumy, just fresh. I love the size (big enough but not too big) and the lather. I use it as shampoo and as soap. Plus, it’s made in Maine and there’s no plastic in the packaging (amen).
All around terrific product!

My All Time Favorite Shampoo Bar!

I've tried several Wayward Chickadee shampoo bars and have liked most of them but the Plain & Simple bar, so far, is my favorite. It could be the way it makes my hair so shiny or it could be the Peony and Fenugreek fragrance. Either way I love this shampoo! Highly recommend!
