To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this product. I’ve only used it twice so far and not sure I’ve hit the sweet spot of using it. It applies well — I only manage to get the thinnest layer on but my hair is soft and feels moisturized after I rinse it and it dries. The scent is mild, which is good because I’m not sure how wild I would be about tangerine scent at a stronger level. I can’t smell it much after my hair dries.
I was excited to try bar styles of conditioner and looked a while before deciding to purchase this one. I loved that it is safer for the water, and easy to travel with. However, when I used it it didn't feel like any product was left on my hair. I have thin, dense hair-straight with no texture whatsoever. My hair felt like straw after drying. I had to use another hair product (which I was trying to get away from my single-use plastic bottles) to make my hair soft and tangle-free. Will not be reordering, though it does have a nice soft tangerine scent. I think I can find products that actually work for my hair!
So far I'm on the fence about it. I'm more of a apple cider vinegar rinse kinda girl. I wanted 2 change it up a lil bit and I love it is reef safe. The only down fall so far is it seems 2 leave my hair a lil dry afterwards. Could just be my type of hair tho. It's a nice sized bar and I love the smell. I'll keep using 2 see if my review changes but so far I'd buy it again just cuz its reef safe andi can use it at the beach.
I am trying to reduce my use of plastic and I'm vegan and anti animal testing so this seemed like a dream product for me. I REALLY wanted to like it but after using it for 2 weeks, I just can't say anything except that it makes my hair dry and waxy to the touch and it looks oily sometimes too. The smell is just ok... not too strong. But it's definitely not moisturizing for me and it does not make my hair soft. I have started to put argan oil in my hair after I shower to give it some more moisture back. I won't buy this again but I appreciate the attempt from the company to make a product like this!
To use, you must 'scrub' the wet bar on your wet head & hair. For those of us with thick curly hair, the LAST thing you want to do is 'scrub' a firm bar on your wet head & hair (especially after scuba diving in salt water, which makes your hair even more brittle). Got the bar as wet as possible, but it never softened up, so felt like I was scrubbing my head with a rock. Thankfully didn't use all over my head, as the area where I attempted to use had turned into a matted tangled mess. Purchased this as stated was intended for dry curly hair. Very sad.
I converted to bar shampoo/conditioner in my efforts to be more "green". I have long thick hair. I have tried other bars but even though most were ok with softness and scent, they fell short in the detangle department. The first time I used this bar I was amazed! It was just like using a liquid conditioner as far as feel and there were no tangles when I combed my hair. LOVE IT!! 5 Stars!!!
I was really excited for this conditioner bar but now after having used it, I don't consider it to be very good. I'm a white woman in my early thirties with really fine, long hair. My hair felt no different between before application to application. It didn't feel like anything was in my hair at all. Ever. I think I may have gone through it rather quickly because I would keep trying to get enough in my hair to feel it and be able to comb thru my hair with my fingers for even application. Combing through my hair after it was well applied was rather difficult in accordance to how conditioners usually work. In theory, its fantastic for being so eco-friendly, which is what I absolutely love, but in actual use, it just didn't work for me.
Smells nice and does help soften hair after "soaps", BUT it does require some work to get it in, rinsed, and to get hair adjusted. I still can't tell if this is leaving a residue or if it's just not compatible with our water, which is not softened.
I feel like I got a different product than other reviewers here because I absolutely HATE this conditioner. I have used and enjoyed other conditioner bars in the past, but I am transitioning to living full time on a boat, and want to use something that won’t damage the ecosystem. Unfortunately, this isn’t going to cut it for me. This product makes my hair feel sticky. It also makes my hair tangle when it is both wet and dry. I am not a picky person when it comes to conditioner; when I travel, I use whatever is provided by the hotel, and I can tell you that the cheap junk they give you at the holiday inn works better than this conditioner bar does. I have long curly hair and spend a lot of time in the ocean in the summer. I cannot even imagine the nightmare my hair would be if I was trying to untangle after scuba diving. I will definitely not purchase this again.
