I have had such a hard time finding a natural shampoo that doesn't leave my hair greasy, and this bar (I use the one for straight hair) does the job. This is the best shampoo I have ever used.
I am super pleased with this curly hair shampoo bar. I have used shampoo bars before and I have used multiple regular sham
I have a mess of thick curly hair, and I do not shampoo frequently unless I want to resemble a poodle. I have used this bar sparingly over the past month and it leaves a beautiful shine on my hair, my hair is actually soft instead of wiry and after drying, my halo of frizzies are noticeably softer and tamer. I just ordered the curly hair conditioner to use with this, and I think the results are going to be even more fabulous/define my curls more. Highly recommend!
I recently purchased the shampoo bar and have used it 4 times. Unfortunately it makes my hair feel really greasy and dull so I don’t like it:( maybe my husband will like it, thanks anyway 😊
Recently re-purchased the Lovely Rita shampoo bar for curly hair. I am Black and wear my hair naturally curly, and have found that this shampoo bar works great for me. If you're like me and don't wash your hair every time you shower -- or, if you have roommates who also use the shower but don't share shampoo -- I would suggest that you don't store the bar in the shower, even on a wire rack. Even just a little water getting on it during each shower will dissolve it faster. With my second bar, I've been storing it like this (https://bit.ly/2Rt9oOg), and I can already tell that it will last much longer this time.
I love these soaps-- I got one for each of our bathroom sinks and they're both really nice. I especially love the smell of the blue clay and patchouli. They're very smooth and suds up very nicely. I will be repurchasing when I run out of soap again.
I always appreciate that Eco Collective stocks local eco-concious brands that I likely wouldn't have heard of otherwise. Thank you for introducing me to Flourish Botanicals!
It’s hard for me to find bars of body soap that don’t leave a residue after I rinse off. This soap smells so good and I love how it exfoliates my skin. Definitely recommend!
I love trying bar soap from many local and small businesses & I love this bar. Beautiful presentation with the flowers on top, just like in the photo. Lathers very well, smells amazing but not too strong on the body afterwards. Been enjoying using it to shave with my ECO new safety razor!
In the past, I used liquid soap and am really happy I made the change to a beautiful, high quality, and sustainable alternative. The smell is nice and held its shape well, lasting us several months. It may be pricier than what I would normally spend, but well worth it.
I bought the eucalyptus & shea butter soap and it smells amazing! It's effective but not drying as a body soap. The corners/edges do make it a little difficult to apply to your body at first but I'm sure they will round off after a little more use. I can't wait to buy more!
It took my hair a couple of washes to get used to it, but now my curls are super hydrated and happy with this conditioner bar. Definitely would recommend for my fellow curly haired friends :)
I absolutely love this bar! It leaves my curly hair so soft and moisturized! It is the best conditioner I have found for my hair and even more amazing that it is plastic free! I love using a bar soap and conditioner too as it's so easy for travel with less mess. I hope the company that makes these never stops or changes the formula.
I've been trying to buy less plastic bottles and was skeptical of trying shampoo bars so I figured I would start with this conditioner bar and I tried a sample of eco collectives just add water shampoo. Hated the shampoo it left my hair dry but this conditioner bar is the best conditioner I've ever tried for my hair. I have thinner stranded hair but a lot of it that has a tendency to be wavy and I love how it makes my hair feel after use. Coming back to buy a bunch more and stock up
I love this conditioner! My hair feels so so soft, and this bar has lasted much longer than any others I’ve had. Highly recommend!
I was skeptical at first, since I've never used a bar conditioner and my hair is wavy/slightly curly. But I've been using this maybe 1-2 times a week and it's made my hair so soft! It's been working out well for my hair texture. I love not having to use plastic in my hair care routing any more :)
Cut in half to use as dish scrubber. Softens like a frosted mini wheat when wet so more pliable. Works great and dries nicely between uses.
I like that it feels exfoliating, but not harsh on my skin. Great quality and very affordable. Once mine aged out, I kept it as a bath tub scrubber.
This was my first attempt at a plastic free dish washing tool. It took a few tries to kind of soften the loofah a bit and figure out how to use it, but overall I'm satisfied with how it cleans my dishes. It's definitely different from a kitchen sponge - it won't be super useful for wiping off surfaces but it does have more scrubbing power in my opinion. And it still holds onto soap. I'll probably buy one of the wood handle dish scrubbers when my loofah starts falling apart, but I'll happily compost it when that day comes :)
Good quality loofah & feels great to exfoliate my body with
I use mine as a shower loofah and it exfoliates wonderfully! Highly recommend.
I loved the idea of this since it's extremely low waste, but it just does not work!
The end product after adding the recommended amount of water is very liquidy and does not do a good job of conditioning my hair. After a shower using this, my hair felt very dry and tangled. I bought all of the 3 different scent options because I thought I'd love them, so how I'm just trying to use them up to be done with them. I've been using this as a leave in conditioner just to use it up which seems to be doing pretty well in that capacity.
As a stand alone it's a definite NO, but as a leave in, it works.
I would not purchase again, I'm sticking with the bars now.
This is exactly what I was looking for! The conditioner powder/paste mix is perfect in every way. Comes in a zero -plastic paper zip bag, fun to make, leaves my hair silky smooth, reasonably priced for the quality. I only wish it’d come in a bulk size or they can restock. So glad I found this. Will repurchase!
This conditioner works really well! I had tried conditioner bars and I just wasn't a fan. This stuff comes out to a great consistency and does a good job. I added my own mix of essential oils to the unscented packet for my own scent. When my current batch is out I will buy the bulk packet to keep using this product with minimal waste!
I purchased a trial size of the citrus scent, but I would not recommend that scent. The scent does not linger, but it does smell "off" while using the shampoo. I mixed the packet with (an unknown amount of) water in a 3 fl. oz. travel bottle (emptied packet into bottle, added water to under 3 fl. oz. (aiming for 2 fl. oz.), shook the bottle). The consistency of the product is not very viscous (more liquid-y) and kind of slippery (similar to the Fresh soy face cleanser). Quite a bit of product must be used (I usually use about the size of a grape, but for this product I needed multiple grapes) to lather the product and get a clean hair feeling. I used it in combination with Olaplex no. 5 conditioner. My hair felt soft, clean and nice after air drying. What I like about this product is that I can prepare shampoo based on my use/demand instead of purchasing a giant bottle that will take me years to go through. ***I may have over diluted the product.
I got the trial size as I was curious and it felt really harsh on my hair. Tried to use all of it but noticed my hair was consistently dry and felt brittle after use so rinsed the rest down the drain.
I did not like this product, it left the dreaded flaky white bits in my hair after it dried.
I thought maybe I had just added too much, but I still got the white flakies with less product.
Maybe this works for people with wavy hair, but if you have thick curly hair I don't think this will be great for you.
My hair still got frizzy and I didn't notice a difference in curl hold compared to when I just use a little leave in conditioner.
I would not purchase again.
My husband and I both have short hair and love this gel! It’s easy to make and forms a perfect consistency to hold your hair in place without gets gunky and crusty. I go for days between washing and it hold my hair in place the whole time without looking oily and gross (I have fine hair that shows grease quickly). If I need to refresh it, I just wet my hands and touch up spots. Highly recommend this product!
when I'm too lazy to make flax seed gel this is my #1 to go hair gel. It starts a little stiff feeling when my hair is wet, when its all dry it gives me the perfect curl for my natural hair.
Used it with my favorite leave-in conditioner on my 2c-3b hair and it left a nice cast with way less product than I normally use. I made a thicker gel by very gradually adding in water and then sprayed more water into my hair to help distribute. Definitely recommend trying to break up the solids before adding water since my mixture ended up a little chunky, but still worked well.
Overall really great product that I can see myself permanently replacing my old gels with once I've used them up!
I am SO happy I decided to purchase this product a few months ago! I am always looking for ways to simplify my curly hair care routine and as I am a frequent traveller who had plans to go abroad for 3 months, I needed something that worked and that I could bring a bulk amount of with me in my backpacker's pack. And this product is everything I could want and more! I have 2B/2C hair and this product paired with the Eco-Collective organic cocoa butter conditioner bar are a DREAM together! My hair has never looked better - no crunch, just non-frizzy curls that hold! I have a tiny jar with the solid gel powder and another with a small amount of the gel I've made while abroad as well as 2 tins with my shampoo and conditioner bars and BOOM - The ultimate zero-waste minimal travelers hair care routine. I will praise this product forever! Thank you Eco-Collective and Salon Solids!!
I have this one and then 2 other ones I bought elsewhere. This one is the best one yet. It's bigger and higher quality.... Doesn't feel like it's gonna unravel. I definitely recommend
Easiest way to save small pieces of soap! Quality is as pictured and described!
I've really liked this pouch so far. I didn't know what to do with my small soap pieces because they were too small to use but I also didn't want to waste them. This pouch dries hard if you keep the soap in it after each shower/bath, but softens when wet.
I wanted to love this bar, but I couldn't. I tried it for 2 weeks. When my hair dried, it was dull and covered in a thick layer of residue. I tried using less shampoo, rinsing it for longer. Nothing worked. My hair felt dirtier right after my showers than it would after 3 days of not washing it. Oh well. I suppose I can use it as body wash, but I don't really want a layer of residue on my body either. I got the "Refresh" version
When I switched to shampoo bars I started out using Friendly from the UK. It worked great but I wanted something closer to home/lower carbon footprint. The sage on the mountain bar finally was my local match! I have fine but curly hair so I need a carefully balanced bar to cut down frizz but without too much oil. These bars are perfect, no nasty residue and the sent is wonderful. Warning, the first couple of times I used the bar the scent was strong, but the smell after washing and when your hair is dry is mild so don't worry.
Absolutely love this shampoo bar. Leaves all hair types from thin and straight, to curly, to thick and wavy - feeling and smelly great. Great alternative to bottled, everyday shampoo.
Love this shampoo bar! It's an easy lather and will last a long time.
At first I was worried it smelled to strong but my washed hair smelled amazing when I got out of the shower. It dried super clean and soft. The shampoo even had a nice satisfying foam to it
Pros: Feels great on skin, lathers well, smell is very mild, and, as other reviews have mentioned, it really hasn't changed shape at all after nearly a month of use. So for overall quality and price, 5 stars hands down.
Cons: Something in this soap seems to be drying my face out. If you have a healthy moisturizing regiment already, then this will likely be no problem. I just noticed I have had to increase my method of moisturizing a lot after washing my face with this. Still recommend!
Love this face wash. It doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin.
I love this soap! It soaps up really easily, and you don't need much to get a thick lather. Doesn't dry out my skin
This is the face wash my dry skin was looking for. Such a gentle cleanse, pleasantly faint smell, and seems like it will last me a long time as the bar hasn't even changed shape after two weeks of using it. Super excited to keep using this!
A lot of facial soaps (bar and otherwise) can feel like they strip the skin of everything- dirt, bacteria, and oils. With this bar, I feel like it is cleansing without stripping away moisture that I need to replace right away with face lotion and the like. I can't speak to the UV protection, inflammation reduction, or redness reduction that the description holds, but so far have been very satisfied with my purchase- which is great, since this seems like it will last me a long time!
I've been using this face wash every day for a few weeks, and the block still appears as large as when it arrived. It is going to last me a long time,and was well worth the 10 bucks. I love the zero waste aspect. My skin feels smooth and looks clear. This has been working great during hormonal or stress-related breakouts.
Not much lather as it’s sulphate free. Left the hair super shiny and clean after wash. Will definitely recommend.
Works really well, doesn’t dry out hair. First “natural” shampoo my daughter (oily hair) really likes and I (dry hair) like it, too. Can’t wait for your store to reopen!
I've been using Eco's shampoo and conditioner together for a few weeks now, and seem to be getting better results than I did with more expensive (and wasteful!) products. My hair is shiny and frizz-free.
Grabbed a set of two of these lids to use for my dry shampoo and it works great! Used the other one on my jar of homemade cashew Parmesan so it could be used like the shaker bottle you buy in the store.
I love that I could use one of my mason jars as an olive oil container with this lid. It does exactly what you need it to do.
