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'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.
I have tried many conditioner bars and this is the first time that actually gives my thick, wavy hair enough moisture. It's great!
I use this exclusively as my conditioner. I have very long tangly hair and this stuff does a great job keeping my hair hydrated and shiny. Lasts a really long time. I like that this bar doesn’t start crumbling and dissolving like other bars I’ve used. Smells good. Well-made product!
I'm really pleased with how well this bar conditions. My hair feels great--much nicer than with my previous, mass-produced conditioner, though I'd been happy with that before.
The one thing I'd note is that I disagree with the description of having a "subtle scent of cocoa butter." All I smell is the geranium essential oil, to a moderately strong degree (based on an earlier review I wonder if the product has changed, or maybe scents are really that subjective!). If you're looking for an unscented or low-scent product, this probably isn't it. But for a scented conditioner this really works wonderfully.
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
