Old-Fashioned Bar Shampoo Herbal Formula is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It lathers well! I assumed a bar shampoo wouldn't lather well but I was wrong. This lathers nicely and leaves my hair feeling good and thick. More than 'regular' shampoos. I don't let it sit where it can get wet in the shower so I feel like it's going to last a long time. I would recommend it and will purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shampoo bar Unlike some bar shampoos this does not dull the hair or leave a residue. Hair is soft and manageable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful shampoo I purchased it last week and have used it several times. I used it without a hair rinse as I didn't need it. As my hair has thinned because of age this is wonderful as it does not weight the hair down with chemicals. I have a problems with perfume smells and this has almost no smell. You can use it every day as I am doing this week. Now I will see how long it last me as I am on the first bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical!! This shampoo bar is outstanding!. I was so excited to use this bar and it worked beautifully. It made my hair very shiny and soft. Before, my hair was very dry and frizzy and was very hard to brush. Now, my hair looks so much healthier, has volume and body, and was very easy to brush through. I also love how it is all natural and has nothing harmful (SLS). I am extremely pleased with this product and will definitely buy this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not hard-water friendly. DOES NOT WORK WITH HARD WATER! I had high hopes for this bar shampoo after reading so many outstanding reviews and really wanted a great alternative to the usual detergent shampoos, but unfortunately this type of product does not work at all in hard water areas like I live in (all the castile soaps are the same way). First off, it did not lather AT ALL as promised, it felt very dirty and greasy going through my hair, and it left my hair with a filmy, waxy-feeling coating on it and encouraged frizz to form. The filmy, waxy coating also was left on my hands, shoulders and any other body part the soap residue touched, as well as a horrendous case of bad soap scum all over the shower wall, shower curtain and floor of the tub. After such bad hair results right at the start, I subsequently tried the apple cider vinegar rinse tip, and it did help improve the frizzies a little and helped the hair to not feel as straw-like while wet, but it only helped the hair in a minor way, and all of the other problems mentioned still remained. (And my hair still looked back after it dried.) We gave this a try for a small while and nothing changed, so I'm returning it and won't try to purchase any of these types of saponified soap products again. I sure do wish it would work for us with our hard water the way it works for others who don't have hard water!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good shampoo in bar form I started using shampoo bars to cut down on plastic bottles being discarded. Swanson's has good prices and good choices for this product. The shampoo bars clean the same as bottled shampoo for me.They last a good while as long as they are kept on a soap dish to dry between uses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Love It! My husband decided that this bar of shampoo soap belonged ONLY to him! When I explained that I had purchased TWO bars he relented and allowed me to use "his soap", he even uses it on his body, he just loves it! I am really impressed with it, no shampoo has ever rinsed out so completely and quickly as this does and boy does it ever lather too!. I have pretty long hair that tends to be fine, since using this soap my hair seems to have much more body, it's not limp and lifeless anymore. I must also note that I have been using an apple cider vinegar rinse as well and it can't be beat either. You can purchase great, whole, apple cider vinegar here at Swanson's, mix it half and half for a hair rinse and guess what, no tangles, comb outs are a breeze! Thanks Swanson's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with this Shampoo "Alternative" I have been trying all sorts of hair cleansing products, looking for something effective and easy to use, with a minimum of ingredients and no toxic additives. I took a chance on this and was very pleasantly surprised at how well it cleansed my hair without stripping or drying it, or leaving an unpleasant residue. I will continue to buy this. Using a bar shampoo takes a little getting used to; it's a bit of a challenge keeping it from melting in the shower caddy, so I recommend buying their "soap dish" or using something equivalent. I also wish it came in a larger size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love how my hair feels with this product & no plastic packaging to pollute our environment. I follow it with an apple cider vinegar and distilled water rinse. Even my hair dresser commented on how healthy my hair is!
