This is the best shampoo bar, and I’ve tried probably 10 brands. Ones made without soap(like this one); as well as soap based with using an acidic rinse after.
I have a water softener at home; and despite that, other bars I’ve tried either left my wavy hair really clean but stripped or waxy feeling. With soap based bars, I could never get the exact ratio right for the acidic rinse. So, I gave up and went back to bottled natural shampoo and conditioner. FINALLY…this formula is perfect! I think the key is the mixture of gentle surfactants used. I find most natural shampoos use decyl glucoside. That ingredient along with other coconut based surfactants just really dry my hair, despite being sulphate free!
I almost didn’t even need to use conditioner, it just rinsed out so well. I’ll try the one for curly hair next that has the detangling ingredient in it. I’ll probably be able to not use conditioner with that one and just use a light styling cream after the shower. Money and plastic saved! Please don’t change the base formula for this shampoo bar. I’m officially ditching my bottled shampoo!!
