20 out of 29 people would recommend this product26/08/2020, By NicoleAll the shampoo bars in this range is wonderful. Last long, suds and cleans really well, smells great. You do need to use conditioner with this to keep hair from drying out.08/05/2020, By BeaNice soap23/01/2020, By BI am sorry to say this product was terrible on my hair.
it made my hair heavy, oily and very difficult to style.
I can't even use it on my boys hair. We ended up using it as a general body soap.07/01/2020, By HelperWell done04/01/2020, By NickyHarsher and more drying. Hair needed conditioner straight afterwards which Is not the case with the Coventry brand. Hair didnt curl as well.As the product's name suggests - I love that it's exactly that - a pure and simple shampoo. Lovely fragrance. Still experimenting - after 2 washes hair feels a bit oily.04/11/2019, By CherilynPure Simple27/10/2019, By KateThis is not the product for you if you have fine hair. I want to like this product so badly because it smells so good and is so eco friendly. My issue with it is that it is a bit of PT with having to do the vinegar rinse on top of it all. Even with the vinegar rinse, my hair was left oily and stringy. This is a good product if you have dry hair but my experience has been sad.13/09/2019, By LuluLove this shampoo! First time using a shampoo bar and worked well for my hair! I have quite dry hair so it put a good amount of oils back in.11/09/2019, By SaraYum Yum Yum! I have dreads but am a firm believer in washing them ;-) Great shampoo, smells lovely and does the job. Also a lot cheaper than other shampoo bars out there.02/08/2019, By Brown GirlGive it a miss. Made my hair oily even with trying it for 2 weeks with a vinegar rinse. My hair also started falling after using the product. I tried a Lush bar afterwards and my hair stopped falling and it’s shiny and bouncy. Rather splurge on the Lush bar in my opinion26/07/2019, By CarolineI was very disappointed by this shampoo bar as I have had great experiences with Lush shampoo bars.
I have fine, straight hair and this leaves it looking greasy. I gave it a few tries (with and without vinegar) but was not impressed.
The smell is okay- not strong when hair is dry.15/07/2019, By AJUnfortunately wasn't impressed with this shampoo bar. Will stick to other brands in future13/07/2019, By AlexandraTerrible for me as shampoo. I have thick wavy hair, and this made my hair very greasy at the roots, even after trying to use it for two full weeks so that my hair could get used to it. (I already use a natural liquid shampoo, so it wasn't a huge change). Two weeks with greasy hair, and no changes. Smells great, but not good for my hair type I guess.07/05/2019, By AlCleans hair, smells fresh and is easy to apply. Also a great space and weight saver when travelling!29/04/2019, By Zero wasterNot suitable to use with conditioner. I couldn't get the conditioner washed out. Left my hair terribly greasy and was forced to wash with other shampoo to try and get it out....14/04/2019, By AndreaI started using shampoo bars a couple of months ago. It took about 14 days for my hair to get used to shampoo bars. I would recommend this to anyone who is not into plastic or has allergic reactions to standard shampoos.14/04/2019, By AndreaThis is my favourite body lotion, it comes in a glass container, and all the ingredients are natural. It doesn't have either coconut oil nor palm oil which is awesome! I wish this will come in a bigger glass bottle. This lotion texture is easily absorbed and doesn't have any synthetic fragrance (it is not like these cheap lotions that leave you sticky and your skin oversaturated).
I highly recommend this lotion.01/04/2019, By EmIt takes a bit getting use to - if your a first timer using a shampoo bar. but I like it. Smells nice and lathers nicely too.26/03/2019, By CourtneyUsed this shampoo bar twice and the first time I really didn't like it but after the second time (washing my hair PROPERLY) and rinsing with a teaspoon of vinegar and 1L of water my hair is soft and shiny! Really loving it!25/03/2019, By LindsayWhen I saw a few reviews saying that the soap leaves your hair oily and stringy, I was worried I’d wasted my money, especially because I am prone to oily hair as it is. But after trying it, I’m really happy with the results. My hair feels light and soft and it doesn’t look or feel greasy or stringy at all. I didn’t rinse with vinegar and water because I didn’t have any vinegar, but the shampoo bar worked beautifully and it smells absolutely divine. Love that it’s plastic free and I don’t have to ever buy another plastic bottle of shampoo. It’s small and convenient for travel too, and it’s very affordable. I will definitely order this again!08/03/2019, By EllenIt made my hair lank and I don’t like the smell. Also on the packaging it said ‘shampoo, then use a vinegar rinse’. What’s that about? If you need a vinegar rinse to make it effective it should be stated in the description of the product.28/02/2019, By MelissaI would have loved to switch to these shampoo bars but sadly they leave my hair looking stringy, greasy and oily.31/01/2019, By ToniI was so disappointed in this bar. It left my hair lifeless and a stringy/oily (maybe the essential oil in it?). I am trying to live a zero waste lifestyle so I had high hopes for this little shampoo bar. But it's just not for me. It smells amazing though27/01/2019, By MikeGreat product, smells good, lathers nicely and great for my beard too!09/01/2019, By RuzanneSmells beautiful and lathers nicely
19/12/2018, By MarilyNice soap.23/11/2018, By SamWorks well11/11/2018, By DebbieThis smells really fresh and it foams so well. Just a quick run between my hands makes enough of a lather to wash my whole head, and I've got long hair!23/10/2018, By Tcruelty free beauty
