  • Made with 100% natural oils

  • Great for backpacking and traveling

For luxurious hair, wash with J.R. Liggett's Old-Fashioned Bar Shampoo. This cleansing bar works into a nice lather that rinses out easily and leaves hair with body and manageability. The bar formula makes it great to take backpacking and traveling. Each bar of shampoo offers the approximate number of usages as a 24 ounce bottle of most modern shampoos. It's made with 100% natural oils, including olive, coconut and castor oils, along with essential oils for fragrance. This shampoo will not strip the natural oils from your hair so most people will find that they do not need a conditioner. It's also good for permed or color-treated hair and hair with natural curl. 100% biodegradable. No animal testing. No preservatives.


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!
