Did you know? When soap is made, an alkaline substance like lye is added to an oil or fat. From this mixture a resulting soap is made, with glycerin as a by-product. In factory processes the glycerin is usually skimmed off and used to make moisturizers. Traditional saponification retains all of the glycerin, and the soap is moisture rich, and won’t dry out your skin, or hair.

Great for fine, delicate hair.

Disappointed after the 2nd wash. It does clean hair beautifully, but also strips it of natural oils, leaving it dry and my scalp itchy and flaky.
No doubt it's a fantastic soap, but a bad shampoo. For that price i can get a better hand soap.
Won't buy again
18/10/2021, By Maja
Shampoo bars shouldn't contain lye. This is plain soap. Disappointed I didn't notice before buying.

Leaves my hair dry and frizzy. Will continue using as just body soap though.
01/09/2021, By Robyn
I used to suffer from a dry itchy scalp as well as dry hair. With each use th condition of my scalp improves and my hair feels squeeky clean and is soft and in good condition. I am very impressed and so happy to have found this shampoo bar. I have tried many different brands of natural shampoo before this.
11/08/2021, By Mandy
Makes washing your hair an absolute pleasure and so easy. Leaves my hair clean and soft with no residue much healthier than before.
21/06/2021, By Elize
I have an itchy scalp and as soon as I used the shampoo bar I had immediate relieve.
12/06/2021, By Janine
My first time using a shampoo bar and very impressed. Works well on my no more hair dye, now natural greying hair. Want to try it on my 3year old twins and my husband too. Loving a more natural product. Hair is soft and shiny. Highly recommended

Best shampoo bar I've used so far. Hubby now also uses it.
23/05/2021, By Voshaarnooi
Best shampoo bar I've used so far. Hubby is also using it now.

Been using for a few months and scalp was never healthier or cleaner and my hair never grew faster, the bamboo is phenomenal definitely a winner
09/02/2021, By Becky
First time using a shampoo bar and it seems to be working very well (have washed my hair 3 times since I got it). Lathers nicely, hair is squeaky clean and doesn't have a residue (I'm not using a cider vinegar rinse or conditioner or anything). Hair is nice and soft and shiny. I only need to wash my hair about once a week as it isn't going limp/greasy after a couple of days like it does with traditional shampoo. I have long, straight, fine but thick, un-dyed blonde hair.
28/01/2021, By Nelet
Lathers nicely, leaves my hair soft and shiny. Very happy with this product.
11/12/2020, By VERONICA
I've never used a shampoo bar before and was quite amazed. I have coarse, protein-rich hair, grey dyed dark brown. I have used salon shampoo for years. This bar made my hair feel truly clean for the first time! I found it non-drying, though I do use conditioner anyway. Left my hair shiny.
08/12/2020, By C
Really enjoyed using this. Bought it for me but my whole family loved it so I'll definitely be ordering more.
05/12/2020, By Heellayah
Smells lovely.
26/11/2020, By Vanessa
I bought this shampoo bar for my three girls. It works beautifully on my two littlest ones' hair - leaves it soft and shiny. But it doesn't work for my 8 y/o's thick hair unfortunately.
20/11/2020, By Mel
Was a bit skeptical about shampoo bars, but tried it, and love it! Hair feels a bit strawy after wash when still wet, but super soft and clean when dry
29/10/2020, By Tasneem
Pleased to say that I've been using this shampoo bar for about 7months straight. I only shampoo my hair once a week so it lasts really long. I love how it smells and cleans my hair. I think the rosemary in the bar is the reason my hair has grown faster too. I use this and an apple cider since for conditioner.
23/10/2020, By Natascha
Really glad that I found a shampoo bar that is gentle enough to use every day. It lathers wonderfully and my hair has more volume. And the packaging is biodegradable!
17/10/2020, By Natasha
Lathers beautifully, lovely clean herby smell, leaves my hair smooth and shiny. Love that there's no chemicals and parabens.
05/10/2020, By Leigh
Adorable smells divine very happy

Does the job
30/09/2020, By Elne
Gives you tangle-free and easy-to-comb hair after washing.
27/09/2020, By Jackie
It took some getting use to when washing my hair with it. I now apply it first when showering and then only rinse last, hair is softer. Hubby likes it and he has short frizzy hair. We now purchase it every month
20/08/2020, By archilulu
This bar washes better than many other shampoo bars, doesn't leave "buildup" on your hair that you might feel the need to rinse with vinegar, and doesn't dissolve on itself as it lies in the soap dish.
I would give it 5 stars if it didn't come in plastic packaging..... in that regard it doesn't match up to other shampoo bars.
16/07/2020, By Leilandie
Both hubby and I have curly hair and I was a bit worried whether this would work. Im pleased to report that we love it! It lathers nicely and makes our hair nice and soft. Very happy!
01/07/2020, By Chantie
Love this little shampoo bar. It lathers well and my hair is clean and shiny after each wash. This bar also brings out my hair colour more (I have virgin hair - no dye).

The only downside is, that it contains palm oil :( other than that, I'm very happy with this product
30/05/2020, By Miriam
Works well for curly hair, but I wouldn't recommend for straight hair. Smells amazing and lasts quite a while.
23/04/2020, By Lee
I love this shampoo bar! I have just switched to shampoo bars, so this is my first one. It lathers does well and moves through my hair easily. No waxy residue is left behind after I rinse properly.
23/04/2020, By Phoebe
Works like a charm. I have wild thin oily hair (such a treat) and it felt clean and conditioned. No need for a conditioner at all. I'm super happy with this bar.
13/04/2020, By Phoebe
Myself and my husband both have long hair. And we love this bar. The scent works for us both and creates a good lather that cleans our hair nicely and doesn't dry it out.
04/04/2020, By Kaye
So reasonable and these last ages. Makes my hair shiny and prevents build up
04/03/2020, By Suzie
I have recently discovered shampoo bars & love that there is no plastic bottle to dispose of. It lathers well. You just need to be careful that the bar does not get too soggy if left in a damp shower.
25/02/2020, By Tracy
First wash was great, but second wash my hair felt hard and clumpy. Maybe because product didn't wash out completely although I thought I did a good job of it. Tried a 3rd time with a vinegar rinse but was no better.
30/01/2020, By Adele
Due to budgetary restraints and my continued quest to lesson my use of single-use-plastic, I thought I'd give this a go, and I am impressed. Even in the summer heat my hair can be washed every 3rd day, which facilitates my mission to save water and the dermatitis on my scalp in not aggravated, which is always a big plus. My hair is clean, shiny and healthy. Will continue to buy.

Top one
27/09/2019, By Julie
bought it again cuz it's a good soap bar. smells subtle and it doesn't give dandruff like other ones I've tried. Hair might feel stiff without a vinegar rinse but it works well as a combination. lathers easily too and it's plastic free wrapping so absolutely guilt free!
13/09/2019, By Ulricke
I bought both the Rosemary and Rose Geranium. I prefer the latter ones fragrance, however, they are both lovely shampoo bars. Leaves my hair so clean and shiny and soft. I love these shampoo bars and will most definately purchase them again.
01/09/2019, By Taryn
I bought 3 of these bars. One for myself, my sister and my mom. All three of us have different textures of hair and this shampoo works lovely for all of us. I find that conditioner is not needed when using this shampoo, also got compliments that my hair is shiny since I’ve been using this.

Coventry Soaps are not wrapped in plastic, they are wrapped in biodegradable/compostable cellulose.
31/08/2019, By Anneen
I really like the shampoo bar. It works well with my hair even though it is long. It foams very well. Only negative is that it comes in a plastic wrapper. Can't they change to a paper wrapper like some of the other soap bars?
20/08/2019, By Bee
I only washed my body with it not my hair, I really loved it though. It foams a lot and smells lovely.
18/08/2019, By Jennifer
It smells good, foams well, however after my hair is dried, it feels as if the shampoo has not been rinsed out properly. Second time around I rinsed very well and the same feeling. I will not be buying this again as my hair also gets greasy by the next day.
12/08/2019, By Megan
It works well.
06/08/2019, By Eve
Worst shampoo I have ever used! Made my hair waxy and thick - I've washed it again with a different natural shampoo and the wax is still there. Not sure how it worked for anyone else but it definitely is not great for my hair.
05/08/2019, By Isi
As ex hairdresser i really want quality for my hair and sculp. I’m using this soap bar for the first time and i’m gonna use it for the rest of my life. It’s amazing how easy it is to use and how clean and healthy my hair and sculp get. And i love the rosemary smell
12/07/2019, By Ophelia
I refuse to buy products with PALM OIL.
07/05/2019, By Sumz
Amazing and clean product. No harsh chemicals.
29/04/2019, By Julia
this shampoo is fantastic, it rinses out easily and is kind to the environment with no chemicals or plastic bottle
15/04/2019, By Janet
I love this shampoo, it's the first time I've used a shampoo bar, and I won't go back to liquid shampoo! It lathers really well, rinses out so easily, and leaves my hair so soft and shiny I no longer use conditioner!
14/04/2019, By Elle
Really dried out my hair. Had to use it for my body. Didn't work for my fine blonde hair or my boyfriend's thick dark hair. Maybe it isn't designed for caucasian hair?
23/03/2019, By Alexandra
This shampoo is gentle and produces a nice lather. It leaves a great clean feeling that isn't rubbery or waxy. It is also lasting really long despite my hubby using it everyday.
Yes, it is made with palm oil but other 'palm oil-less' shampoo bars dried out my and my hubby's hair. We will definitely keep purchasing this product .
17/03/2019, By Anne-kzn
Those who want to get rid of palm oil and replace it with something else should take the time and trouble to research responsibly sourced palm oil, and the damage replacing it with something else could do to the environment.
16/03/2019, By Terry
Take out the Palm Oil
19/02/2019, By anonymous
Great soap
22/01/2019, By Henda
It left a waxy texture, took 3 washes to get it all rinsed out and really dried out my fine, colour treated hair. I now use it as a body soap. I am used to other natural shampoos that are lovely, but I really can’t recommend this product.
21/01/2019, By Gaynor
I bought this for my daughter and she is happy with the results - she said it lathered well and left her hair feeling clean.
16/01/2019, By Kim
It's a challenge when rinsing the product out and it leaves a waxy texture to your hair.
29/11/2018, By Julia
Its the first time I have bought a shampoo bar as I want to move away from plastic shampoo bottles. I used it for the first time this morning and it is fabulous ! I had to use to little and it lathered beautifully and my hair is so much smoother and not fluffy.
03/11/2018, By Gizelle
I've used this twice and I love it! My hair feels clean and soft afterwards. It seemed to lather more the second time around.
30/10/2018, By Nokhanyo
It clocks in as expected, does the work it's expected to do and clocks out as normal. Do I love it? No but I still give it five stars because much like a spouse from an arranged marriage I can learn to love it as long as it treats me well.
29/10/2018, By Gwyn
Love this product. Lathers well and hair feels silky and fresh
19/10/2018, By Getruida
Amazing. My hair is so soft and cleansed and it is so cheap! By far the best shampoo ever and smells amazing!
13/10/2018, By Jenni
I would love to buy this but it contains palm oil. Unfortunately, the farming of palm oil is destroying the habitat of the orangutans. they will soon become another statistic.
I will use the alternative bars which have no palm oil though.
04/10/2018, By Chantelle
First time using and buying a shampoo bar so I was a bit on the fence BUT I LOVED it!!! As with any shampoo, a little conditioner is needed but my hair feels amazing! Absolutely love it and ready to toss my shop bought junk in the bin!
27/09/2018, By Rose
Smells delicious. Did leave my hair very soft but a bit dry.
