Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalate Free

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

Sulfate Free

Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.

Organic Content

Organic materials and ingredients are grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers, promoting a healthier use of land and decreasing harmful agricultural runoff. By steering clear of toxic chemicals, farm workers experience less exposure to hazardous conditions, promoting social responsibility as well as environmental stewardship. Choosing organic materials eliminates the use of insecticides and other harmful chemicals, promotes efficient resource use, and results in a safer products and a cleaner planet!

    Try it!

    This was my very first try at bar shampoo and I’m really pleased. Everybody’s hair and scalp are different so if you’re reading the reviews to see if it’s a good product I recommend you give it a try and find out if it works for you.
    It lathers great, the smell (while subtle) is nice, I don’t have to use much per wash so it lasts a long time, and my hair feels clean but not dried out afterwards. I will be trying the charcoal bar next!

    So far I like this product. I think it has a great subtle scent that is not too overpowering like some products. It leaves my hair soft. I will continue to use again in the future.

    Not for me

    emmakh (verified owner)

    After a solid 2 weeks of using this shampoo all I got was waxy build up on my hair and a clogged drain. A lot of this is probably due to my water’s hardness. I’m aware that I can add an ACV rinse, but I’m looking for a minimal products routine and if that’s the case: this product ain’t it. I don’t doubt that it worked for others.

    Not for me

    Mouseplum (verified owner)

    I think my water’s hardness may have something to do with the awful calamity that became my hair and shower drain! I used this for about 2 weeks, hoping my hair would adjust (I’ve been using the round shampoo bar from Package Free). It didn’t, just getting waxier and the residue clogged my shower drain! It’s now being used as hand soap.

    Really good option

    Melissa (verified owner)

    I have searched for a shampoo bar for a while, and thought this was one of the best ones I’ve found (besides their other charcoal/rosemary bar, which is now my favorite). I’ve used this bar for about 6 months, and I am pleased with how my hair is. However, this last time, this specific product was out of stock, and so earth hero sent me charcoal/rosemary by Plum Brilliance. From now on, I will be ordering that one. However, both are amazing: They lather well, leave my hair soft, and I don’t have to wash for 2-3 days. With regular shampoo, I used to have to wash every day. This bar lasts about 1 month with my long hair and 3 other short hair users.

    Great Shampoo!

    larissabeauchamp (verified owner)

    This shampoo works better than my old conventional shampoo. It doesn’t leave any residue/waxiness and it doesn’t dry my hair out. That being said, I do need to find a conditioner because my hair will get drier and less healthy over time if I don’t use one. Also, this shampoo doesn’t work the same with waters from different geographical areas. If your water has a lot of chemicals in it to purify it, then this shampoo doesn’t work as well. Still gets the job done, just not the best. Also you have to make sure your hair is very wet when using it. If you’re having trouble getting it to suds up, try using your hand to get more water on your hair without rinsing out the shampoo.

    Not working for me

    samicat13 (verified owner)

    This does lather up well on a wash cloth and then I use the washcloth to clean my hair and it does get very sudsy but it just keeps leaving a faint waxy residue that creates build up in my hair brush that’s very hard to get rid of. For reference I have thick straight hair that is oily. I do feel like it IS cleaning my hair/scalp but the residue it leaves behind is a problem.

      Hi Sam! Shampoo bars can take some time to adjust to – we hear you! One tip is to use an apple cider vinegar rinse every once in a while. This helps remove oil build-up and any product residue. It’s also lovely for the scalp and promotes shiny hair. 🙂

    Best shampoo bar I've tried!

    Serena (verified owner)

    I’ve been using shampoo bars for over a year now and have thick, long, curly hair. The bar suds easily and leaves my hair feeling very soft. Will definitely buy this again.

    Suds up very well

    lindsayorigami (verified owner)

    This is a great shampoo bar, it suds up very well and is easy to move through hair and massage it your scalp. I have very thick curly hair for reference and I think it does a great job cleaning it. I also use a conditioner bar (I crocet know anyone with curly hair that doesn’t, we need it! Lol) so I can’t speak to how your hair might feel if you only use the shampoo bar. This bar and the bestowed Essentials brand are my 2 favorite shampoos and I rotate back and forth between them. I’ve used a lot of other bars and non of those suds up well like this does. It’s quite effortless to get the soap from the bar, unlike with others i’ve tried. The bar also lasts me a really long time in general, but especially compared to traditional liquid shampoo.
