Ingredient Highlight:

  • Wild Harvested Shea Butter is a great source of moisture for dry or damaged hair providing hydration, strength and softness.

  • Castor Oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and is high in Vitamin E, minerals, proteins, and omega-6 and -9 beneficial fatty acids. The antioxidants in Castor Oil support the keratin in hair and help make hair stronger, smoother, and less frizzy.
  • Vitamin E Oil supports hair growth, prevents breakage and split ends; and boost your hair's elasticity and shine.

  • Henna Alkaner restores the acid-alkaline balance of the scalp without affecting the natural balance of your hair. It is a natural treatment for damaged hair and is said to strengthen thin and flat hair while adding shine and volume.

Directions:

  • This bar has a high oil content and needs to be used sparingly.
  • Rub bar gently onto wet hair in a hot shower or bath. (Use long sweeping movements rather then circular movements)
  • Comb through, then rinse thoroughly with hot water.
  • For straight thin hair, apply only to the tips.
  • For thicker curly hair, apply from the roots to the tips.
  • This conditioner can be used as an leave in conditioner if desired
  • It can also be used as in-shower moisturizer or body lotion bar.
  • Have fun with this bar by exploring how it works on your specific hair type.

Care Instructions:

  • Solid conditioner will work best when allowed to dry between uses. Store on a well-drained surface away from spraying water.

Why a bar and not a bottle?

  • Most bottled conditioners are made up of mostly water, even as much as 90%. Conditioner bars are package free and concentrated and can be equivalent to 2-3 bottles of conditioner. They are great for travel, excellent space savers and can also be used as a shaving bar or in- shower body lotion bar. Earth Ant encourages sustainable lifestyle change. Ditch the plastic! Be an active consumer and choose body products that are beneficial to your body and the environment. This bar is 100% plastic free, and supports a circular economy, eliminating waste and minimising the continual use of our diminishing resources.

I'm still trying to finish this bar, I can't get it right and honestly such hot water can't be good for my hair. This is not working for my extra long straight hair, but it does last long.
03/04/2022, By Candice
I wish I'd read the reviews properly on here before purchasing. I agree with what most have said: it is very difficult to lather and doesn't feel like it is treating the hair much at all. Not even sure what to do now because it feels terrible as a hand soap/body conditioner (as suggested by the company in the description) too. I have straight, thin air.

freaky sticky hard to apply... but very sparing application is key.
First use left my fine straight hair greasy and looking unwashed,
However sparing application only to the ends helps to tame the fly away ends. still trying to get the hang of it, at least I am not allergic to it as I am to normal liquid conditioners.

I wanted to give this product a try as my daughter has crazy curly hair that needs buckets of conditioner and im trying to eliminate as much plastic from our lives as possible. The very first time we used it it was like magic, her hair was soft and the knots just glided out. Thereafter we have been struggling to make it work well. I also think that softening it up in hot water makes it work better. I do my daughters hair so i am finding putting it on someone else's hair very challenging. I do think you need to maybe do it in a warm shower so that all the wax can melt and be combed through while in the shower. Hoping to make a better go at it in summer. I do love the smell and the convenience for travelling tho!

At first I used way too much, as it doesn't lather well. Couldn't get it all washed out properly. Then, the next time I used too little. I can't figure out how to use it. I'm considering using it as hand soap. :(

I'm still trying to figure out how to use it. It can easily leave my hair ( dead-straight, thick, Caucasian hair) feeling very greasy. Here is my current process: 1. Make the water very hot to get the soap to melt onto my hands a little. 2. Still using the very hot water rub the soap from my hands into my hair. 3. Still under the very hot water, take a hair brush and brush through my hair until the soap is out of my hair. I would love to hear from the product owners if they have any tips for us :)

Would never recommend. It is awful.
08/05/2021, By Luane
Very sticky, does not glide over hair, pulls out some hairs while trying to apply. I personally prefer a conditioner bar that isn't this sticky (it's almost clay-like)
05/05/2021, By Em
As much as i wanted to love it, it just doesn't work for my hair. I know it takes time for hair to get used to a new natural product but it's been a couple months.
The shampoo bar i adore but the conditioner doesn't work for me
04/05/2021, By Chevonne
I was not too crazy about the soap, the idea is brilliant but to actually use it was a bit difficult.
23/04/2021, By Charney
This bar is horrible it is like a bar of wax that does not work at all I would not reccomend this at all
13/04/2021, By E
I so badly wanted a conditioner bar, but I really do not like it. It leaves my hair tangled and sticky. I have had it for about 4 months now, and I've tried using more, using less, using different shampoos with it, but I can't get it to function as a conditioner at all.
03/04/2021, By Nadia
Makes your hair feel soft. However, as they say use it very sparingly.
20/03/2021, By Tam
It is quite waxy and difficult to spread onto thick hair. I don't know how it works on thinner/straighter hair. I personally wouldn't buy again.
01/03/2021, By Sidra
I tried this as it's a lot cheaper than the equivalent at Lush, where I've bought conditioner bars before. It's definitely great on dry and frizzy hair. I absolutely loved it. It needed hot water and warm bathroom to really work well on my curly, frizzy mop. And yes, it's a great skin conditioner too! On my husband's straighter hair, it was less successful.
01/03/2021, By Helen
This product did not work well for me at all! Too sticky and difficult to wash out.
I would not recommend the conditioner at all, however the shampoo bar works.
04/02/2021, By Tanika
Impossible to apply to hair, similar consistency to a wax candle basically! Because your hair is wet the bits that actually come off just sit on strands of your hair like actual wax!!
23/12/2020, By Jacqui
I didn’t take the instructions seriously the first time I used it, and used what I felt would be a “normal” amount of conditioner. I rubbed it on my head until I could feel it. But soon realised that I had put waaay more on my hair than what was required! My hair felt as tho it had been soaked in beeswax!

On my second try I just rubbed a little on the tips of my hair, and that seemed to work better. It’s a very different way of conditioning hair and it’s taken me a while to adjust. Especially because it doesn’t feel like I’ve put it on my hair when I actually have! So I’ve erred a number of time resulting in that beeswax feel and subsequently it feels like my hair gets greasier quicker than it usually does.

I would recommend this product as long as it is understood that the application is different to the usual bottle conditioner.

Love the fragrance. Thrilled with plastic-free-ness. I will happily use up this bar until its done, but will most likely try out another “conditioner bar” to see what other producers offer.

It works very well for me, I have an African afro. I rub it in from my roots to the rest of my hair and I love the results, keeps my hair moisturised♥️
06/11/2020, By Kim
Very waxy and leaves hair feeling heavy and oily. Does not detangle hair and leaves it feeling sticky.
31/10/2020, By Ari
Great product
21/10/2020, By Susie
It took me a few washes to work out the right amount for my hair but its definitely less frizzy & love that it's totally plastic & nasties free
20/10/2020, By Diane
It was hard to move through my wet hair. Left it sticky. I had to reshampoo to get it out. A pity
18/10/2020, By Jacqueline
This bar works really well for my long curly hair to tame it and give it definItion! I'm so used to using liquid style conditioner that it took a few washes to get used the way to use a bar on my hair. But I can feel how it detangles, how it moisturisers and nourishes my hair. And I love the fragrance!
17/10/2020, By Dan
I have been using this conditioner bar for the past 3 weeks. I was a little sceptical, since I tend not to use conditioner. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I have thick, dry curly hair and it helped to tame it. Even if I don't shampoo my hair I still use the conditioner bar kind of like a hair wax or a gel.
17/10/2020, By KAREN
I found it very greasy, it took at least 4 shampoos to get it out of my hair
