This is the first shampoo bar that tackles my hair issues, my hair is fine and sometimes a bit lank. After using the bar, my hair looks clean and has more volume. I can even go one day without washing it, when I usually have to wash it everyday.
Rebecca, thanks so much - we are thrilled that this works so well for you. We appreciate you leaving us a review.
I've ordered this to try out on my daughter's tangy hair. She has sensitive scalp, fine, straight, slightly greasy hair that she hates brushing. Was concerned that it'd be too heavy, but thought I could always use it myself to shave my legs. Found this a really good conditioner - somehow it's easier to use than the bottled stuff, leaves her hair easy to brush, doesn't make it flat and greasy. And it is also good for shaving my legs.
Wish the box this came in was from recycled materials - seems excessive to me for a "green" product
Masha, we're glad to hear it works well for your daughter's hair, thanks for leaving us a review. We used a recycled board when we first launched - but the high oil content of the bars meant that it leeched through very quickly and did not provide adequate protection. The box we now use is food grade, with a non-plastic coating to minimise the problem with the oil. It is made with carbon balanced paper supporting The World Land Trust which creates and maintains habitat reserves. It is both recyclable and compostable.
Got this after a lot of search, as both me and daughter have sensitive flakey scalps, she suffers from eczema too, so harsh anti-dandruff shampoos can be problematic.
It doesn't irritate us as much as some shampoos, but it's by no means magic - she's still a bit itchy, but better than with fragranced stuff (from a different make)
Getting to spread it is harder than with some shampoo bars - it doesn't foam that much, rubbing it directly to the hair/head gets better results. I wash my daughter's hair twice - seems to be better at getting any flakes out of her hair.
I'd love a bit more environmentally conscious packaging for these bars. They come in sturdy cardboard boxes from what looks like not recycled material - it'd be an easy thing to change, surely.
Overall it's okay, I'm not blown away and don't know if I justiify paying that much for this product
Masha, thanks for leaving us a review. We're pleased to hear it doesn't irritate her scalp. It is lower lathering due to being sulphate free, this also minimises irritation for some people but you don't need lots of foam to clean. We recommend using the bar directly on the hair for best results. Regarding the packaging, initially we used a recycled board - but the high oil content of the bars meant that it leeched through very quickly and did not provide adequate protection. The box we now use is food grade, with a non-plastic coating to minimise the problem with the oil.

The shampoo bar is great - only downside is that I used it up very quickly and took a while to lather up.
thanks for leaving us a review, The Hydrating One is sulphate free - so it is lower lathering than The Rebalancing One. We sometimes find that people use more than is required in trying to get lots of bubbles. Unless your hair is very long or thick, a few swipes should be enough to clean effectively.
I am a convert. This solid shampoo bar is lovlee to use, easy to get the hang of it and makes your hair silky and soft..... just like shampoo night as a kid.... I now have my boyfriend using it too.... my curls have returned and have I purged plastic in the process
Kate, we so appreciate your kind words and it's brilliant that your hair feels silky and soft too.
