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.
This bar cleans well, doesn't dry my hair and smells fabulous. But smell doesn't linger and isn't overwhelming. Love it. My hair is dead straight and I live in the desert SW. This shampoo bar works great for me. Plus, it's not encased in plastic and the little box it's shipped in is recyclable.
I tried shampoo and conditioner bars from Lush several years ago and hated them. They made my hair feel like straw and I was mortified when I realized how much artificial dye was in it! I avoided shampoo bars after that, but finally decided to give them another shot when I got tired of buying shampoo in plastic bottles that are full of sulfates, artificial coloring and fragrances, and who knows what else.
These shampoo bars are amazing!! I’ve been using the Lovely Rita Super Condition bar and my hair is so soft, moisturized, and shiny. My scalp used to be super dry, but since using this product, my scalp couldn’t be happier! Good for the earth, good for my body. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to conventional shampoos again.
I’ve long been looking for a more sturdy hair tie that doesn’t break every couple of months and that’s zero waste. These hair ties ROCK, they stay true to shape and don’t stretch out which I absolutely love. Plus I have dark brown hair and so I like that I could buy some that blended in with my hair.
Wore one of these for an intense hour long workout. I have a thick head of hair so I fully expected it to crease as well as struggle to hold my hair, not only did my pony stay tight the entire time, but when I took it out, it didn't take any hair with it and best of all: NO CREASE!! Exceeded my greatest expectations.
Love these hair ties and went back for more!
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 :)
I've tried a number of bar conditioners over the last two years as I've been transitioning away from plastic bottles. This is the only one I've tried which works. My hair is moisturized but retains body and shine. I heartily recommend this product.
I'm so glad I bought this after reading the reviews. My hair is shoulder length, curly and quite thin. This is PERFECT for it! I finally have hydrated, voluminous locks that lasts for days. All those barely used bottles of shampoo and conditioner I no longer need will be repurposed as shaving cream until the end of time because I've finally found my holy grail hair care products. Thank you Eco Collective!!!! Also, I'm so elated to see it's local :)
Okay, so here's the deal... I have been on the lookout for a new conditioner bar. My hair is fine, straight, shoulder-length, but THICK. All of the bars I have tried...static. Static! So I did some research and found this one. I am soooo glad I did. Oh my gosh. Wonderful. Awesome. Such great moisture, no static, and great body. Did I mention, I live in New Mexico? Yeah, so there's that.
I am so pleased. Thank you.
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!
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.
Solid, but quite light. Just the right amount of stiffness in the bristles, gets through tangles and scratches the scalp in a good way. Feels like it will still be a great brush for years to come.
This brush is sturdy and made of quality materials, and feels like it will last several years. If I was basing this review on durability, it would get 5 out of 5.
However it requires frequent cleaning (at least in the land of LA smog) and is difficult to clean. You can't submerge the brush and soak it. You have to be careful not to get water in to it, while awkwardly scrubbing the wooden bristles.
I wish the rubber portion that held the bristles could be popped out and washed separately, then popped back in again.
Ok, so the first time I used this dry shampoo I dumped waaaay too much on my scalp and it looked like I had been dusted with powdered sugar lol. But once I figured out the correct amount it works great! Let's me get away with not washing my hair an extra day to save water.
After the first use - I’ve been converted. It’s very light, absorbs the oils so well, and doesn’t leave my hair with an incredibly strong smell. I thought I’d miss the canned dry shampoo but I don’t. My hair feels so much more natural (not stiff, powdery, or sticky) with this product. My only Initial struggle with this new dry shampoo is application. I’d recommend using a makeup brush to dip into the powder and apply to your hair.
