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 wanted to love this shampoo, but since the first time I used, my hair felt sticky and dirty. I used an apple cider vinegar rinse and that helped, but my hair just didn’t feel clean and it looked dull.
No matter how I apply it ( directly to hair, lather on hands first, etc.) i get poor results. Leaves a very waxy film on hair that takes multiple washes to get out, even with an apple cider rinse. Smells good but that's about it. Not impressed in the slightest unfortunately
This is like washing your hair with GLUE. I could not get a comb or brush through my wet hair. When dried, it had EXTREME RESIDUE which required three more washings with regular shampoo to get my hair feeling normal. A week later, on a weekend (because I wasted an extra half hour on a work day when I first tried the product), I gave this shampoo another try with an apple cider vinegar rinse. Now my hair still feels greasy like I haven't washed it in three weeks, but it also stinks from the vinegar! My daughter was disgusted by this product too...she has thick long hair, and I have fine shorter hair. This bar is being thrown out!! I'll go back to Lush's beer shampoo.
It arrived last week, and it smelled a lot like lavender. (I now know it contains lavender, no thanks to the manufacturer.) I asked about the ingredients here on Amazon, and they deleted my question. Twice! (Just wow, right?) I reached out to Amazon to ask why my question was deleted, and "Beauty and the Bees" claimed asking for ingredients was "a request for medical/safety advice." Seriously? People don't have a right to know the ingredients?
I directly emailed "Beauty and the Bees" to ask for the ingredients since the list contains generalities like "essential oils." They replied, I quote, "Our Beer shampoo does not contain lavender essential oil."
I did a patch test. It has lavender. Absolutely it does, no doubt in my mind! I do not appreciate being lied to or having my simple question deleted twice. I'm not sure what they're hiding, or why? I will never trust this brand. It would've been so simple to answer my question honestly (or at the very least, admit it was *possible* it contained lavender!) but instead, they made sure I'd never buy any of their products, ever.
I wanted to like this product so badly!! It makes sense in so many ways: cuts down on plastic, easy pass through TSA, no mess for travel and a great space saver. Unfortunately it did not work for me at all. It didn't last very long, and my hair was awful while using it (with and without their conditioner bad). My husband thought the same thing. Our hair had a film on it like using bar soap. My hair is long with a little curl and it made my hair like a big, coated, helmet down my back. I'm guessing it's due to having beeswax in the soap. I'm really hoping they reformulate this. I really love the idea.
Initially I was very excited about this product, it seemed to be working great. After a few weeks my wife said that she had been noticing clumps of my hair in the drain trap. I tried to be as gentle as possible while applying the product, but the hair loss continued. I stopped using the shampoo bar, the hair loss stopped immediately.
