This shampoo bar did not work for me at all. I have very oily hair, which I have to wash every day. This shampoo bar is formulated for oily hair, so I thought it would make my hair less oily. However, my hair gets oilier faster when I use this. Plus, it gives me dandruff and a very itchy scalp! Therefore, I only use it on the weekends...
- Nice scent
- Takes less time to wash hair
- Lasts a long time (had mine for almost 5 months, and it will probably last another 2 months).
- Doesn't leave hair feeling clean
- Hair is oilier
- Itchy scalp
I have quite oily hair and have heard that this shampoo is supposed to help so i decided to try it. It smells great but does not translate through to my hair. I have always needed to wash my hair every day because it is so oily and I find I still do. While my hair does feel clean after using the shampoo bar, it becomes oily in the same amount of time it usually takes my hair while using any other shampoo. I might end up repurchasing it though because I enjoy the smell and the concept behind a shampoo bar. However, I'm not quite convinced it is actually helping my hair at all.
Had high hopes for this shampoo since it was recommended on some website as Best for Oily Scalp No2 - I'm forever on a quest to find a shampoo to combat my oil scalp which gets greasy day after washing it.
First time I used this shampoo I really thought my greasy scalp was banished (how stupid!) my scalp felt very clean and my hair was in lovely condition (but this is normal when I use a new shampoo for the 1st time)
But sadly my hair was oily day after washing, maybe not as much so, but have used it a few times now and its doesnt make my hair any less oily.
The quest continues.....
I absolutely love this shampoo. I have quite an oily scalp and I used to wash my hair every other day, and by the time came to wash it again, I felt it was still greasy by then. However, I didn't want to wash it every day (I tried it and felt my hair was even oilier). I was desperate to find something that worked. I'm so glad I found this product! It makes my hair oil-free, light and voluminous. It's a bit pricey, but it lasts for ages so I think it's worth it. I feel like my whole hair has changed since I started using this product - and for the better.
I have not personally have not used this product, so I feel awkward writing a review for it. However, I have seen the results on my friend and I actually cannot believe it.
I purchased this solid shampoo for her for christmas, as she had been complaining about her oily scalp. She had given up hope and started washing her hair with supermarket shampoo and not using conditioner, and it still got oily every single day. I was in Lush purchasing gifts for some of my family members that I know like Lush, saw this and thought it would be perfect for her. I purchased it, and now both she and I can't believe the results. She can now go two days without washing her hair, it is nice, clean, soft and shiny for two days without her needing to wash it. I couldn't stop sniffing her present as I thought it smelled fabulous, and she seems to like the smell too. It isn't too overpowering and seems to fade reasonably quickly, but that isn't too bad if you are after something inoffensive.
I use Lush Squeaky Green, and so can comment on the ease of use of the bars - easy as pie. I at first was sceptical of these as I assumed it would be a kin to washing your hair with soap, but I think so long as you get the right bar for your hair type, they work really well. All I can say is that this bar seems to be perfect for people with greasy hair who want to be able to go a few more days without washing.
I had really high hopes for this product -- I have fine, permed, long hair that gets so greasy after one day that I must wash it every other day otherwise it starts looking super dirty. I first noticed this product when it was the #1 choice to get rid of greasy hair from an online list that was posted. Purchased it and tried it out. The smell is great, slight lemony, lavender scent to me. With a bit of water, the bar produces a lot of suds and does a great job of cleaning - squeaky clean - almost TOO clean. It created a whole mess of tangles in my hair that normally doesn't occur when I use other shampoos. I haven't had so many tangles since I was a kid. I've had to add so much conditioner in order to detangle the whole mess. After drying, my hair does look great, but it didn't have the effect that I was looking for. My hair got just as greasy as any other shampoo. I still had to wash my hair every other day. This bar reminded me of Neutrogena's anti-residue shampoo in that it cleans very well, but nothing for preventing the oily-ness. As the other reviewers have mentioned, the bar of soap must be kept in a water-tight container, otherwise it'll melt away. It does seem like it'll last for a while, but the fact that it doesn't do as it claims makes me not want to repurchase!
I don't understand all the hype. this makes your hair look and feel like straw.
This shampoo bar did combat my oily hair (for reference I need to shampoo my hair daily or else it will be an icky oily mess!). And with this I could get away without shampooing for a day and half. Not even 2 days! So ended up shampooing daily anyway. It dried my scalp down and made it itchy and sensitive! It was such an uncomfortable experience. I think this was made for really oily haired people. Also, if you do not put it in the tin container or any container away from the shower this bar will disintegrate in 3 weeks.
My favorite shampoo bar, and it lasts forever, I bought this 5 months ago and still half of it is left and I wash my hair just about every other day. It smells very nice and does a good job on my oily roots and leaves my hair very soft and bouncy. The only thing that could make it better was if it wasn't drying, but a good conditioner takes care of that.
I love this shampoo! My hair is curly but when I wear it straight, it gets very oily at the roots and I can't get many days out of a blowout. This shampoo bar has allowed me to get three days out of a blowout, which is unheard of for me! It's a great value as well since you get so many shampoos out of it!
