Old-Fashioned Bar Shampoo Tea Tree + Hemp Oil
Great IF you follow up with something acidic
This is a great product, as long as you follow up with something to balance out your hair's ph.
This product worked perfectly when I first got it. However, after a little while of using it, I noticed my hair was remaining oily and felt like it had strange residue. It gummed up my hairbrush. After some research, I discovered why: this shampoo is NOT ph balanced. It contains Sodium Hydroxide (so it's like scrubbing your hair with soap) which is alkaline. Hair needs to be more acidic. The easy fix is to rinse with apple cider vinegar mixed with water (I keep it in a jar in the shower: 1 part acv to about 5 parts water, roughly. Pour it over the head, then rinse out). After doing this, it seemed to fix the problem.
Bottom line...I have waist-length hair and find this works great as long as I follow up with an apple cider vinegar rinse. No other conditioner, needed. The bar lasts me a little over a month.

I love this shampoo!!!!
Made only with plant based ingredients and it contains no "sls" or other questionable chemicals, so you can feel safe using it.
Makes your hair squeaky clean, with no residue and you don't even need to use conditioner after

I am 70 years old and my hair is getting thin and hard to manage. The JR Liggetts Bar Shampoo is perfect. It leaves my hair manageable and it does not dry out - also you do not need to use a conditioner. It is all in one bar.

This product didnt impress me, it left my hair really oily especially at the scalp.It feels like your wearing the shampoo after the hair dries. It does last long but thats the only advantage...

My scalp did not like this bar shampoo...
I wanted to love this product because I like the idea of a shampoo in soap form.
Plus I heard that hemp seed oil is great for moisturizing the scalp... but my scalp did not react well to this "shampoo". It smelled great, but it irritated my sensitive scalp! (Dryness and itchines... aargh!)
So I'm using this as a regular soap for my body instead.
If you have a sensitive scalp like me, it's better just to use essential oils themselves (hemp seed/tea tree/lavender) or vinegar with lemon juice. Everything else will irritate!

WE've never used this type of shampoo before. I have been looking for something without the Sodium Laurel Sulfates. This does a beautiful Job. Takes a little getting used to, as there is not much lathering, but that is because it does not contain all the garbage. I have very long wavy/ curly hair so I still need a conditioner. Husband does not need conditioner, and he has a little longer hair than most men these days. It looks great after blow drying.
