It’s been a while! This will probably be the last shampoo bar review for a while, because I’ve settled on a routine I’m really happy with and am done playing the field, lol. This is a great bar called Fragrant Tresses from Heart of Iowa Soapworks.

Ingredients: Castor oil, Water, Coconut oil, Palm kernel oil, Olive oil, Sodium hydroxide, Rice bran oil, Fragrance oils, Jojoba

Smell: This is a synthetically fragranced bar that smells a lot like commercial shampoos. I purposely tried this one out because of dh’s smell-aversion to a lot of the shampoo bars I’ve tried.

Texture: This is a nice, hard soap that lathers up to a rich, creamy lather.

Did it clean my hair and scalp? Yes,this was a very cleansing bar — leaving that squeaky clean feeling. Great for those who don’t want anything left on their hair to weight it down.

How does my hair look and feel? Very shiny, slightly on the grabby side.

Price plus shipping: $6.50 + $2.75 shipping for a 4 oz bar

Verdict: I give this one a thumbs up :) As I mentioned earlier, it is more on the cleansing side so probably best for those with fine, limp hair.
