This shampoo bar features oodles of concentrated green tea extract. Did you know that green tea is full of potent anti-oxidants called catechins? I could've called this bar the Catechin Bar. Studies have shown that green tea may help reduce skin cancer, rejuvenate old skin cells, improve psoriasis and dandruff conditions, and neutralize damage done by exposure to UV light.
But we didn't stop there. We took it to the next level by infusing the oils with organic nettles, known for their ability to stimulate hair root growth and add smoothness and shine - AND organic horsetail, full of minerals and natural silica, which adds strength and slip to the hair shaft. Enriched with luxurious mango butter and jojoba, this bar is full of natural, nurturing care for your skin and scalp. The scent is a sweet, complex, citrus, herbal (in other words, incredible) blend of essential oils that would charm anyone. The Green Tea and Nettles shampoo bar is a terrific choice for folks who struggle with an oily scalp. So with all of that awesomeness happening in just one bar of soap - what are you waiting for?
Ingredients: saponified oils of an organic nettles and horsetail infused blend of grapeseed and organic sunflower, organic coconut, castor bean, mango seed butter, organic sustainable palm, and organic jojoba, green tea extract, rosemary oil extract, and essential oils of orange, may chang, lemongrass, ginger, ylang ylang, almond, lavender, lemon, and fragrance.

My hair is really short so I cannot comment on whether this bar will give my hair body when it grows out like others do, but the lather is amazing, it smells wonderful, and cleans really well. My hair feels well moisturized too. I will definitely buy this bar again.
I haven't tried a shampoo bar from here that isn't amazing. These are the best shampoo bars I have ever used! I have tried shampoo bars from Chagrin Valley, Sweet Creek Herbs, Prairie Land Herbs and many others from Etsy and NONE have worked for me like the ones I have purchased here. I am not knocking any of those other brands at all. I think they are all good products BUT AVNS shampoo bars work better for ME than all the rest.
I am 30 years old and I have never loved my hair the way I do right now!! I couple this bar with the ACV rinse and my hair is SO soft with no flyaways! I am so estatic! Oh, and I'm pretty sure my hair has grown at least 1/2" in the few short weeks that I have been using it! I also use AVNS's dry shampoo the before I got to bed so I only need to wash my hair every 2-3 days! This is a must try!
I'm giving this to my dad, who has a sort of eczema of the scalp. I"m hoping it will help him as much as it's helped others reviewers. It reminds me of a spring garden, before the flowers have bloomed, so it's just the clean green smell of new leaves and tangled branches.
This bar is my first experience with shampoo bars at all and I could not thank Apple Valley enough for this product. Before, when I was using traditional shampoo and conditioners I had an embarrassing amount of flakes and dandruff, not to mention the incredible uncomfortable tightness and itch of my scalp. On top of it all, with my curly hispanic hair, the quality of my hair was getting worse by the day. Quite honestly, I started to loose confidence and dislike myself because for many women, our hair is a huge part of us! Well, this shampoo bar changed everything. My scalp and hair feel healthier than ever before and the flakiness is really healing up beautifully! I'm still trying to figure out how to make shampoo bars work best for me since I'm still a beginner but I know I will always be a return customer. So, thank you Apple Valley!
I purchased this one mainly due to the nettles in it. Nettles are known for stimulating hair growth. I can't give a report on any growth yet, too soon to tell but, I can say the smell was great and it worked wonderfully on my hair. I wasn't sure what to expect as far as scent seeing as how I've never sniffed a nettle but I was pleasantly surprised at both scent and texture. It probably works great for growing out hair but there's just too many shampoo bars from Apple Valley to try that I can't bring myself to use just one exclusively
I ordered a water softening showerhead just to be able to use this bar, and it has NOT disappointed! Both my daughter and I have seen a huge difference in our hair and scalp. I have very long (elbow-length), thick, oily hair that must be washed every 24 hours max with a deep cleaning shampoo, which leaves my hair dry and frizzy. Conditioners only make my scalp oilier without doing anything for my hair. My twelve year old daughter has shoulder-length, impossibly curly, frizzy, dry, blond hair and we struggled to find anything that would work for her. My eight year old practical son is thrilled to be able to wash everything with one product. :) We found a solution to BOTH our problems in this one bar! Tonight my daughter said to me, "Mom, this shampoo bar is a MIRACLE!" Enough said.
I love this bar. I have thinning hair and am closely approaching menopause. I also have dermatitis of the scalp which causes dandruff, itching, redness, etc. This stuff WORKS WONDERS on it! What a great combo: green tea and nettles. Green tea is known for it's antioxidants and nettles for problematic itchy type scalp. THIS MUST NEVER BE DISCONTINUED!! LOVE IT!!!!
I am only comparing this bar to other Apple Valley bars since you could never compare Apple Valley soaps to other soaps. This was not my favorite shampoo bar since it was slightly drying to my hair and skin. I still used it until gone but was thankful to go back to the shampoo bar for grey hair.
This is right up there with the White China Silk bar as a favorite. I have fine-ish hair that will usually behave however I ask it to. This bar left it very soft, shiny, and manageable. I would note that before judging the Green Tea and Nettles bar as a shampoo, wait until your hair is totally dry, as mine looked a little stringy until that point. After that, it was great. It lathers well and smells amazing, too. I would probably use an ACV rinse with this one just to stretch each washing a little longer, but I don't feel it's absolutely necessary every time for everyone. Overall, I can't say enough good things about this bar and about AVNS in general.
