Anyway I had some of this I had bought years ago but didn't think a "bar of soap" was going to work in my hair so I had not tried it. I had forgot to reorder more of my Revitalize shampoo that I have used most often and we were running low. So I busted out the shampoo bar and told Ryan to try it out and if it worked I would let him and the boys use it because it was so much cheaper and who cares about short boys hair right. ;) Then I could have the expensive stuff to myself! After he had used it a few times I asked him what he thought. I noticed his hair seemed and clean as ever......and maybe a bit softer! He said it was great and that it lathered more than any other shampoo he had used in a long time.
That made me curious! So I tried it! My hair definitely felt different as I was rinsing it out and I was worried that there would be heavy residue left in my hair. It did lather really well though! After the first washing it didn't seem quite as clean as when I used my other more expensive shampoo but then I read on the label. It said that it will feel different than you are used to because it doesn't strip out the natural oils from your hair the way most shampoos do.
So I gave it another try and another and another and well after 2 months of using nothing but the shampoo bar; I'm excited to share that I have a new favorite shampoo. It looks like a bar of soap. It's about 4 times less money than shampoo I was using and I think it lasts lots longer. And my hair well my hair is very happy now. I think it feels cleaner, healthier, and more natural then ever before. It doesn't need conditioner because the natural oils are still there. I do put a tiny amount of coconut oil on the ends still because I have long hair and the ends tend to get pretty dry and damaged. I got a shampoo bar for the kids shower too and my daughter who has tons of thick beautiful hair says she likes how well it works for her hair! Of course I ended up getting the shampoo bar shelf for each shower so the bar will stay more dry and last as long as possible.
I just love it when I find something simple, healthy and affordable that works! I just had to share!
