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 love the ethos of this company and shampoo bars in general so I really wanted to like this bar, but unfortunately it just didn’t work well on my hair.
I have fine blonde hair which can be quite flat and gets oily quickly, so based on the description I thought this bar might be a good fit. However it leaves my hair feeling and looking quite greasy, especially if I don’t blow dry it. Judging by other good reviews, it must be down to my hair type.
It’s slightly on the pricy side but is a very large bar (probably about double that of my usual Lush bar) and so will last forever!
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.
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
I did not like this shampoo. It left my hair dull and dry. I had a lot of tangles after using this shampoo. No, I don’t need to let my hair “adjust”. I had been using another brand of shampoo bar before this and that left my hair soft and manageable. It’s NOT Lush. I don’t use any sls or sles because they leave my scalp with sores and pimples. I also don’t blow dry or use any other product in my hair so none of those excuses will work. This shampoo bar is just not very good. On the bright side, it did clean my hair. So there’s that...
I love that this reduces my use of plastic, and it was super convenient on a recent trip. Smells great. A little of a waxy feel, but I haven’t tried a vinegar rinse yet. My hair is long and I was able to use this without conditioner.
It definitely made my hair squeaky clean but I had to use it a lot of it to get the job done. I took the bar on vacation with me and it was convenient and nice not to have to worry about shampoo spilling in my luggage however that isn't enough for me to buy it again. This would be great for those with more straight, less thick hair.
I am a huge fan of shampoo bars and was excited to try this. It definitely gives a good lather but my hair feels somewhat greasy even after continued rinsing. This just isn't for my hair. Someone w/dry hair may have a totally different experience.
Gave my hair a waxy feel even after using a acv rinse but did get rid of some of my dandruff and smells good like spices. Not worth the $13 to me though when there are bigger and better shampoo bars out there for nearly half the price.
