Peach Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner Bar Set - For Dry & Dull Hair
I have very thick, very straight, very oily hair. I actually prefer more gentle shampoos because the less I strip my hair of oil the more days I can go between washing (a harsh shampoo means I’m oily by the end of the day, a gentle one I might get 2 or 3 days). This shampoo is definitely gentle, you have to spend more time on your roots than with a liquid shampoo. I soak my hair first, then gently rub the bar itself on my head until I get the suds I want, going in tiny sections where my hair is most oily and then I add a bit of water and suds it all together. My hair ends up totally clean, so for the reviewers that it doesn’t work for I think it may be about time spent working on the lather. That can totally be a deal breaker though if you don’t want to stand there rubbing a bar on your head for 3 minutes.
Also, the more I use it, the more quickly it suds (moisture content in the bar from being in my shower I suppose).
The conditioner also works for me BUT it’s pretty light. I’m really pleased with this since my hair is straight and heavy, if I use too much conditioner I look like a wet dog until the next time I wash my hair. This gives me just enough slip to gently detangle in the shower.
If you’ve ever gone on a “no poo” adventure and dealt with weird alternative shampoos I think this would be an easy switch. If not, or if you just like a strong clarifying wash (and maybe use other products in your hair), you might want to pass on this gentle set.
