I purchased my shampoo bar at a Christmas craft show December 2018. I bought it because I shudder every time I throw another plastic shampoo tube into the garbage. This came wrapped in only a paper sleeve, so bonus points there! As I had a full bottle of shampoo on hand, I stuffed the bar in the cupboard. I am going to be heading out on a vacation soon, as some travel hints suggest bringing shampoo in bar form rather than liquid, so I thought I would take it for a test run before I packed it. I double-washed my hair, and put on my normal leave-in conditioner. My hair was amazingly full of knots, which as it dried, became even more pronounced. I've never had that before. In addition, the shampoo left my hair feeling waxy and prone to getting tangled. I had to rewash it the next day, as I just couldn't stand it. Don't know if I did something wrong, but I wouldn't buy this again, based on performance.
You were smart to try it first. Don’t give up, Carol. You need very little suds. One wash is plenty and an apple cider vinegar rinse might work best as a conditioner, rather than the leave-in conditioner. Transition from shampoo to bar can take a little time, depending on individual differences. Please contact us if you like a refund. No problem.
