Marshmallow shampoo? Bring it on, babe. The marshmallow herb is incredibly moisturizing. To get the most benefit from the herb, we let it sit in oils for a while until we get a mucilage that makes a fabulous vitamin and mineral-rich detangler for curly hair, this is what goes into our soap. Marshmallow root also nourishes and rehydrates dry cells, making this a great bar for dry hair, scalp and skin.
We added aloe because it rhymes with marshMALLOW and sounds cool. Actually, Aloe vera contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It's fabulous for skin because it's rich in vitamin C, E and beta carotene which nourishes skin and scalp deeply. Also, due to its antifungal and antiviral properties, it prevents itching and reduces dandruff and flaking, it also has very potent anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce redness and inflammation. If that isn't enough, it also acts as a great conditioner and leaves your hair all smooth and shiny, plus it promotes hair growth. What more could you want?
Maybe you are wondering how it smells? Earthy, warm, and sweet. Haunting. Delicious. It's sort of hard to explain, so I recommend trying one just to find out.
Ingredients: saponified oils of a marshmallow infused olive, organic shea nut butter, organic coconut, castor bean, grapeseed, mango seed butter, and organic jojoba, aloe vera, rosemary oil extract, and essential oils of orange, ylang ylang, patchouli, and eucalyptus, fragrance.

Don't forget to check out our Citric Acid Hair Rinses or our Herbal Vinegar Hair Rinse - an important step when you are using shampoo bars (read more about that HERE). In addition, you'll want to enable your soap to dry out properly between uses. Try one of our soap mats!
Very rich lather & great moisture for thirsty hair! Scent is subtle, but nice - a nice compliment to the herbal vinegar hair rinse, too. 4 stars only because it's got a little too much moisture to be used more than 1-2x a week (I shampoo every other day). A nice part of my rotation!
Yet again, AVNS has made a stellar shampoo bar. I used it to clarify after a couple of weeks of conditioner-only washing and holy crackers is my hair soft and shiny. The scent is nice and clean smelling, but not soapy. To me, there is a tiny bit of citrus to it, but it's very subtle. Yet one more bar to work into my rotation!
This one was a great product to use as an all over hair, face and body bar. It lathered wonderfully and was great to use shaving as well. I really liked the way this one just worked with so many different uses
This is the second soap that I have tried from AVNS. My hair was sort of dried-out (and winter weather is not helping!), so the Marshmallow Aloe soap looked great for me. I have been using it over a week now, and my hair really does seem softer. The only reason that I am not giving it 5 stars is that my roots seem to look oily earlier than with the other bar that I was using. This might be just my imagination, but it has been my experience. It's not enough to keep me from using the soap, I just know that I have to wash a little sooner than before. Thanks for a great bar!
Really like this! As with lavender buttermilk, makes your scalp happy and hair look and feel great and full! I have thinning hair with dermatitis to boot. This means my scalp is always angry and thin hair, thin. With AV shampoo bars, there's no waxy or any feel of residue once your hair is dry that I'd get with Chagrin Valley. The scent is kind of woodsy-ish. Not my type of scent but it works great!
I am not a fan of anything with chemicals. I have naturally red hair so I stay away from anything that can make my hair look dull and lifeless. My regular shampoo bar was killing my hair, tons of split ends and it was dry. Within one use of this bar, my hair was shinier and felt so soft and healthy. I was even able to go 2 days without washing it (which sounds gross but is so much better for your hair!). I would suggest this bar to anyone with dry hair or hair that lacks luster.
I LOVE this shampoo!!! It makes my hair feel amazing, and looks so shiny! IT smells wonderful, lathers perfectly and a little goes a long way. It doesn't double as shaving cream the way some bars do, but that's ok- its not advertised to! I do wish that it helped the frizz a little, it would be an added bonus. But for what it claims to do and what it actually does.. it far exceed my expectations. I have a ton of bounce, shine and softness thanks to this bar!!
I was using another popular company's shampoo bars and they were leaving my hair,tacky,waxy and my bangs feeling dirty on my forehead. I used this bar tonite and I after I washed it out my hair felt squeeky clean and firm but no residue and heavy waxy feeling on it. I did not even use a ACV following my shampoo,just towel dried and let air dry and my hair was full ,wavy and soft and free of any waxy feeling. I did buy a Cullligan water softener shower head as suggested though to use with my shampoo bars and wow,Im so happy! Amazing results. No conditioner,no ACV rinse,just big full soft hair!
This bar is my favorite scent of all ! I do not have curly hair so the shampoo side of this bar does leave my hair feeling weighed down but it's my favorite for my body.
I love how this shampoo bar makes my daughters normally uncontrollable frizzy hair, soft and manageable!
