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 waited to review this until after I used it a couple of times. So far this bar is great! Smells really nice and is actually very easy to use if you follow the instructions. I have past shoulder length blonde hair that is thin but there’s a lot of it. After doing some research it seemed that this was the bar to use for my hair. My scalp and hair did feel waxy (when wet) the first night but once my hair dried it felt normal. So far, I really like this bar.
I still don't entirely know how I feel about this bar. I'm not use to shampoo bars... This bar leaves a funky film on my hair no matter how many rinses I do. The bar is a bit long from fitting into a soap container. I often have to battle to get the bar out of the soap container, it always sticks to the bottom bad. The shampoo bar it's self has not made my scalp sensitive or give me any rashes. I like it but I don't like it.. The bar does last a long time. I plan to keep using it in hopes that it's just me needing to get use to the bar or my hair needing to adjust to using a bar.
This was my first experience with a shampoo bar, and it was ok!! As others have said, it will leave a residual "feeling" on wet hair but if you rinse thoroughly and let it dry, the residue feeling goes away. Removes grease, and left my hair feeling clean. It does suds up a bit. My real complaint is how quickly I went through it! I have read others using their shampoo bars for 70 or more washes, and I got perhaps 35-40 washes out of this bar - if not less! I have medium length hair, and I do wash my hair everyday.
I'm not blown away by this bar, or a different one I purchased afterwards, but I do enjoy knowing I'm putting less plastic into the environment.
I have used several different beer shampoos for years now. This one is now my clear favorite, not only because it makes wonderful lather without much effort, goes on smoothly and stays where it's put, smells great with unusual complexities, and then washes out easily and cleanly -- but also because it's so much more convenient and responsible to use a concentrated bar in a cardboard box rather than pay for a water-based emulsion in a hard plastic container. Over time, the price of this bar is likely to be no more expensive than other quality shampoo brands on a "per use" basis. In short, there are many fine benefits and no reasonable drawbacks to this product. That's about as good as it gets with consumer personal products these days.
I am grateful, so grateful for purchasing this shampoo..I have thick hair and have tried hundreds of shampoos to stop the flakes on my scalp..This shampoo leaves my hair soft and with no flakes..I love supporting small, sustainable and environmentally supportive operations..The organic ingredients work magic on my scalp and the fragrance is a real sense treat..I purchase more of this alchemic shampoo with much gratitude..Huge thanks to Beauty and the Bees, Tasmania, Austrailia for creating their wonderful, life affirming products....
I switched to shampoo bars about 6 months ago and have struggled to find one that works well with my very hard water. This is the best bar I've tried so far and I plan to continue using it. It smells great - the whole family (guys and gals) like the scent. It lathers nicely and rinses clean with very little residue. I went with 4 instead of 5 stars because it does leave a little residue; however, adding an apple cider vinegar rinse once a week seems to get rid of any build up. My scalp feels healthy and my hair is clean and manageable. The bar is also good sized and lasts a long time - we cut it in half and split it between our two bathrooms and it lasts over 2 months with multiple people using it. I would recommend trying this shampoo bar!
I am a 50 something with the beginnings of silver hair. Since my hair is getting dryer, the products necessary to get things under control were getting out of hand! After reading other reviews, I decided to try it out. Wow! My hair is soft, thicker and the fly aways are gone. I am happy to not add another plastic bottle into recycling. Great product and smells wonderful. Highly recommend.
I cannot use any products with any scent, especially chemically based ones. I love this shampoo bar! An additional bonus was the one day shipping. I needed this shampoo on Saturday morning. I just released I did not have a shampoo without fragrance (which I cannot use), unless Thursday. It was wonderful that I received this shampoo bar on Friday!
I would definitely purchase from this seller again! I'm very happy with the description of the shampoo bar. It's exactly as described. I'm looking to find other items from this seller that I would like to purchase.
My hair is super fine and straight. But don't let that fool you, I have a massive amount of hair. I was worried about using bar shampoo but decided to give it a go. I bought this rosemary bar after using it in the starter kit. It's my second favorite. The beer bar is the best but currently out of stock. Don't be afraid to give these bars a shot. Just make sure you use an apple cider vinegar rinse afterwards. It helps to get the residue left from the shampoo out.
Gives texture and volume to my fine, thin hair. I cut it into thirds, and keep one third in my shower in a mesh soap saver bag, one in my gym bag, and one third in my travel bag. Lasts a long time, especially if you cut it in half, or thirds and/or keep it in a mesh soap saver bag, to keep the whole thing from sitting in water for prolonged periods.
