Here’s a shampoo bar from the maker of my favorite face cream (I’ll save that for a later post), DressGreen. Lauren offers three different scents (Chamomile and Calendula, Rosemary Peppermint and Sweet Orange), and I’ll be reviewing the unscented version, which she calls UnDressed.

Ingredients: distilled water, coconut oil, olive oil, palm oil, sodium hydroxide, castor oil, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, meadowfoam oil, wheat germ oil, vitamin E

According to Lauren, the meadowfoam seed oil “adds shine and moisture to the hair and scalp.”

Smell: This is a truly unscented soap — even the base oils don’t really come through in the smell. It just smells fresh and soapy.

Texture: This bar is very hard and glides smoothly over my hair. It works up into a nice, light lather.

Did it clean my hair and scalp? Yes, very well. This is another soap that strikes a good balance between cleansing well without being drying.

How does my hair look and feel? It feels very soft, light and clean. I love it!

Price plus shipping: $6.00 plus $2.50 for a 5 ounce bar

Verdict: Total thumbs up. I really love Lauren’s shop and this is just another example of her excellent and effective products. As an aesthetic plus, her items are beautifully packaged and labeled.
