I was skeptical given I’ve used only bottled shampoo and conditioner before. It takes some getting used to. I would suggest getting a sleeve for the bars especially once they start to get to the end of their life (they’ll fall apart and be tough to use). I’ve been using them now for 4 years and really like them!! My hair also feels softer and less greasy the next day after washing. My hair is thin and gets oily fast so this helps avoid washing every day from time to time. I would love if it came in a lavender, eucalyptus, or other scent, but that doesn’t make or break my purchase. The mild scent is perfectly fine otherwise!
