NB: Nothing to declare! Product mentioned bought by me!
For the last few months, I have been testing out the two shampoo bars that I purchased from Chagrin Valley. I have not had too much experience with Shampoo bars and previously I had only used the babassu bars from Anita Grant. I have been a fan of liquid cleaners as they are more likely to lather (which by the way, assuming they don’t contain sulphates, assist in removing grease and dirt from the hair, but they are not absolutely necessary for cleansing). Plus the fact, I am not a fan of soap melting away in the bathroom, but I decided to give them a try. I purchased the Babassu Marsh Mallow and the Butter Bar Conditioner Shampoo Bars. I got about 7oz. in each bar for about US$8.
Good value! I cut off pieces of the bar as I needed it.
Babassu Marsh Mallow Shampoo Bar – The main ingredients are Babassu oil, which is great for thick hair and helps with restoring strength and elasticity, and marsh mallow root, which a well-known botanical used for its detangling, softening and hydrating properties. This bar had a citrusy, herbal scent that dissipated when rinsed. I parted my hair into quarters and I was able to get a pretty decent lather from the bar. It did not strip my hair of its moisture but neither was it super moisturizing. My scalp looked/felt clean and it did not itch while I was washing it. I also did not notice any significant ease in detangling. This was a generally a good bar, not amazing, but I would repurchase.
