My hair loves it but the shampoo does not last long at all

There is so minimal leather that it takes absolutely ages to wash my hair biu my hair/ scalp has never liked anything this much since I’m alive!

Still assessing

Seems a lovely product but I may need to give it more time. My hair is coloured and we have hard water but at the moment my hair feels and looks like straw!! 😂 I will persevere, fingers crossed!!

Jane, thanks for your review. It can take a few washes for your hair to get used to a different product, but it shouldn't feel like straw either ... most people say their hair feels softer. Bars are concentrated and it can take a while to get the technique/ right amount working well - could be that you using too much (it's a pretty common challenge). We'll be in touch via email to see if we can help.

Sensitive shampoo bar

Cleans hair very well,leaves hair soft and no irradiation on scalp

Keith, thanks for leaving us a review - great to know your hair and scalp feel good

Great product

Have been using this for some time now and love it, won’t go back to liquid shampoo. Easy to use and leaves my hair feeling clean but without the build up you get with some bar shampoos. Hair doesn’t get greasy in between washes but equally if you are washing frequently it works well. Would recommend

Jade, thank you for your review - great to know we've converted you to solid shampoo - think of all those plastic bottles you've saved

After lifetime of searching

Best shampoo for my hair and scalp I have ever used

Stephen, really appreciate your review and so happy to hear it's the best you've used!
