    You guys :blush:.

    We have switched to a different SCI product for the shampoo bars, the noodles were hard to get a good lather and made the bar brittle when it got small. We're now using half noodle, half powder so they should lather easier and last longer!

    So they’ll be even better? Sweet :)

    So, where can we buy them?

    They also somehow don’t disintegrate in the shower like a usual bar of soap would when it gets wet. Magic.

    They're in my etsy shop right now, the jasmine, yacht club and elderflower are the noodle formula. The denim and lavender are new. We also made a batch of charcoal ones today.

    Re: shampoo bars

    Will they work on oily hair?

    I’m in love with the honeysuckle scent! Also if you’re taking requests on scents I’m pulling for green clover & aloe. This is my Disney side talking. :ghost:

    Tumnus what is the scent I have? I don't recognize it on your etsy. There are loads of ones that look nice!

    @moose My postpartum hair has been insanely oily and I’ve seen massive improvement since I started using the shampoo bar. Not sure if it’s the fact that I don’t need conditioner now or what but it’s gotten much better.

    I also loved her bar shampoo! I found I didnt need conditioner. I got a good lather even with the old formula. My hair is thin (not just fine but actually thin) and oily, and it worked well. The only "issue" I had is that it didnt plump my hair the way my volumizing formula does with my regular shampoo.

    @A. Ham what color was the one I sent you? If it was pink it was Berry Flirt and we didn't make that in the full size bars, if it was blue it's Denim :). It was originally called flannel because it's a Bath and Body Works scent duplication but P changed it to Denim.

    @moose sometimes if my hair feels really greasy I wash it twice with the bar and it gets clean. It feels less heavy than using a regular conditioner so I'm not getting as oily as I was before.

    @Kimmers is it this fragrance? I've never smelled that scent. I'll have to try it out in something, it sounds really refreshing.

    It was what I consider purple so I think it's denim! Just want to make sure as I will include another of those in my order soon.

    FWIW I also wash my hair twice with shampoo bars. One general lather into my hands that I use to cover all of my hair, then another lather for just the longer part of my hair, then another lather for a deep scalp clean. When my hair was shorter I just did 2 general lathers but now that it's longer it takes longer to wash (surprise surprise).

    @Tumnus I think so! It’s really refreshing while still lightly floral.

    @Tumnus do your shampoo bars have sulfates?
     
  16. user4058

    user4058 Chicken

    Nope, they are sulfate free! The formula that we use is very gentle and the surfactants are derived from coconut, the main ingredient is Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate. I have bought shampoo bars from Lush and Basin before and both of those made my scalp really irritated and caused sores. I've been using these since we started making them and haven't had any issues with that.

    Yeah, I just got one too. Literally never heard of bar shampoo.

    I tried that Love Beauty & Planet brand at Target and I hate it. Love the smell, but it feels like it cleans my hair about as good as just using water.

    @Tumnus I JUST bought soap and shampoo/conditioner like a week ago but I’m going to be hitting you up on a shampoo bar next time.

    I really love how environmentally friendly they are. We keep cutting back our single use plastics but all our favorite organic soaps and whatnot come in plastic bottles. I’m open to switching based on the rave chicken reviews!

    @Pickles I have a couple of testers left if you want to try one before committing!

    @Tumnus do you possibly have one extra tester sitting somewhere? I’d love to try it but my hair is oily and finicky.

    @moose I think so, I'll check in the morning and let you know! I'm too comfortable to get up :)
