I wrote a huge long review under the egg and honey bar. I received both of these yesterday. I shampooed with the beer one first with a few drops of tea tree oil. You rub the bar in your hand first then rub the suds in your hair. This sudsed up very nicely. I felt my scalp tingling I am sure due to the tea tree oil. I got this idea from one reviewer who had a bad dandruff and itch problem. I celt like I wrote that review. I have had rhis problem for 2 yeara. My hair was even thinning. Went to dermatologist. She said it was scalp psoriasis. Prescribed a steroid lotion. Didnt work. Besides I wanted something healthy. After the beer shampoo I used the egg and honey one. I was covering all bases. Both reviews said it was great for dandruff. Did the same beer then egg shampoo this morning. They both suds up great. Beer shampoo bar does not smell like beer at all. It is a clean light spice scent. My scalp feels calm. I used no mousse or hair spray. My hair is bouncy. I had no trouble brushing my hair. Love that I am not using plastic. The ingredients are real. Not something you need to take college chemistry to decipher. I just bought these 3 products off amazon and sent them to my daughter and boyfriend. He is having dandruff and itching problem. I think this will help them too. They are going natural. I live these products and will continue to buy. Will keep you posted on my progress.
I bought two bars a year ago, mainly because my son would be hiking in the mountains and did not want to take liquids. He said he really liked it. After a year, I tried the other bar. I rubbed the bar directly on my hair. I was surprised it sudsed up. I also used it as a bath bar. Drying my hair, I noticed how soft my hair was. It seemed to add moisture as my hair is very very dry in the winter.
Not sure who thought this was made to be rinsed out ? -- it left such a greasy slick on my hair that I shampooed without even attempting to style my hair. I had basically clean hair, that just needed a bit of a boast to wash out a bit of sweat etc -- no products at all in my hair. --- I rinse and rinse ... even washed twice thinking that I didnt get 'enough' lather ... LOL wrong, just created a greater slime slick on my healthy mane. ---- I cant think of any reason why this is a use-able product.
Just threw mine away. I gave it a go for a week. My hair felt stiff and waxy and the smell it left in my hair I found really unpleasant. The company was quick to respond to my inquiries but ultimately I did not see any improvement in the waxy feeling left on my hair. The company said it was buildup from commercial shampoos and to continue use. There was such a build up that my brushes became coated in it as well. Maybe it makes sense since two of the main ingredients are wax (soya wax, Leatherwood beeswax) but I’m just beginning to explore these products. I tried it with and without the honey silk hair conditioner bar. Results never got better. I really wanted to stick with bottle-less so I purchased another brand of bar shampoo and was immediately sold after the first use. I do not recommend purchasing this brand.
Ok wow! I was a little nervous to be trying this shampoo. It’s my first time using a shampoo bar and I really didn’t know what to expect. A little bit goes a long way and it lathers so well. My hair post-wash was easy to detangle and had virtually no frizz once dry. It’s silky and smooth again I didn’t know I could achieve that in this hot Texas summer! I opted out of the ACV rinse but I might try to do it once every few washes or so. I hope it doesn’t run out quickly!
Edited to add: I’ve found it’s helpful to double-cleanse and to really make sure you get all of the shampoo out afterward.
I wanted to try the shampoo bar all by its self so that I could get a real idea of how the product works. I normally use what is on sale at the store and what smells good (mostly herbal essence). At first, using the bar was a little akward, I didn't know when was enough. I finally settled on an acceptable lather and decided that was good. I probably used too much. It took longer for my hair to air dry, and the texture of my hair changed. I have baby fine (and tons of it) hair that is always frizzy and wavy. I often have to straighten, curl, or put it in a bun. Only using the shampoo bar, my hair was super smooth and shiny! The texture was different, kind of puffy and it needed to be brushed more often. I still had to style, but I noticed again when I curled with my wand that there was no frizz at the top of my head. the middle through the bottom of my hair is kind of sticky. That's the texture difference I guess. I will use a conditioner and see how that changes.I feel like eventually I will get a waxy build up and have to buy another porduct to fix it. I'll gladly eat my words in an edit if I am wrong . Also, I am sending one to my mother and will see what she thinks. Her hair is much different than mine.
I’ve tried to love it, but I just can’t. Since getting this shampoo bar and the apple vinegar bar from the same company, I’ve been using bar shampoo exclusively. I expected a transition/detox period, and yes, I did go through a phase where I my hair was really quite awful. I persisted. Two months later, my hair is better than during the first weeks, but I’m still not loving the shampoo. It leaves soap residue and my hair still feels oily after washing. Day two is better, as brushing tends to remove the soap buildup.
I use an apple cider vinegar rinse after washing to help remove the buildup, and that helps quite a bit. But I’m still not totally happy with my hair or the shampoo bar. I’m going to persist until the bars are used up (I’m less than halfway there, pretty good for two months!) I expect two bars to last 5-6 months total, washing 2-3x a week.
I really wanted to love this product after reading all the reviews. First impressions were great: the bar is a good size, nice fresh scent to it, the packaging is low waste, and it lathers real well. The results after ten days though is my fine and flowing hair is waxy, greasy, lank, tangling, and my scalp is itchy and flaky (which it hasn't been since puberty). I am sure this product works great with other hair types, but, for mine, it is not a good product.
This is my first shampoo bar and unfortunately it did not work for me at all. I have fine, thin hair, and hard water. I've washed my hair with it 3x now, twice with conditioner and once alone.
PROS: No plastic Nice subtle scent Assuming it lasts for as long as 1+bottles, good price CONS Does not wash out. My hair literally came out 10x greasier looking than it was when it went in. And I SCRUBBED it out. I have never worked so hard to clean my hair. My hair when clean has no texture whatsoever. After using this, my hair was thick, slightly tacky, and somehow very staticy when used without conditioner. So, if you're trying to start dreads, this night be the product for you.
Pretty disappointed, would not recommend for fine, thin hair.
UPDATE: the greasiness and tackiness is improved by using MUCH more product, and washing more frequently, but for whatever reason my hair is still extremely staticy at the ends. I'm adding a star because i was able to resolve my number one complaint which was how greasy my hair was after washing. For what it's worth, I've probably used it for about 10 washes now which may be contributing to the improvement. Will update again if i notice more improvement
Like some other people, when I first used this it left me looking the part of a greasy hippie, even with using an apple cider rinse. After a couple times, I decided to wash my hair with a bit of left over bottled natural shampoo and noticed my hair was ridiculously sudsy. It dawned on me what happened. I had left over shampoo in my hair. I tried again, trying to use less but still get all my hair, but it was still too much. Not the fault of the bar, I simply have ridiculously thick hair and it was grabbing a lot of the shampoo and holding on to it. The next time I took a zester and shaved a couple teaspoons, mixed that with warm water then added that to more water in an empty shampoo bottle(around 13oz of water total). I can now get it through my hair and out with no leftover shampoo deposit. I have been doing this for close to a month, still using apple cider rinse afterwards(no conditioner) and my hair looks amazing. I'm still on the first bottle of mix, and that's on thick, almost mid back length hair(I would have almost been through a regular bottle shampoo). I also dye my hair bright colours, and this washing method has left my colour bright and almost unfaded, while other natural shampoo usually has faded out the colour almost completely by the same time frame.
