I want to love it
I am trying hard to get rid of plastics wherever possible and tried to embrace the bar shampoos and conditioners. I have used a few of these bars and I really want to love them, but I'm struggling with the conditioner. I have long hair and it takes me a long time to coat my hair with the bar, and I always end up pulling out a bunch of hair in the process. It's really hard to hold when the bar gets small and I drop it often. I am not sure that adding 2-3 minutes to every shower is a good trade-off considering I live in a drought zone. The shampoo is easier to manage since you can lather it and work it into the hair in a way the conditioner doesn't. I'm trying a conditioner concentrate in plastic-free packaging next, but if that doesn't work I'll likely settle back on this one. Kudos to this company for working hard for this planet!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Laura! Sorry the conditioner has been difficult to use.. switching from a liquid to bar conditioner is for sure the biggest leap. We recommend applying the conditioner to very wet hair, and holding the conditioner under running hot water helps loosen the bar up as well. You could also trying working up product in your hands by rubbing the wet bar between your hands and then applying like liquid conditioner. You could also turn off the water while applying the conditioner to help save water. Thank you for choosing plastic free!
