I am really glad that there is an option to purchase sample bars because there is quite a difference each bar I tried had on my hair type. I sampled: Bella Rose, White China Silk, Hemp and Honey, and Rhassoul and Avocado. Overall, each shampoo bar left a heavier residue or film than other shampoo bars that I've tried. This post wash texture and build up and acv rinse is not something I have had to consider with other bar brands, and so this is also something that makes my rating lower for these products. I have a good amount of hair, longish between shoulder blades, that is straight and more on the fine than thick spectrum- and found the rhoussal/avocado was the heaviest residue for my hair type-it was a nice body soap instead- no matter how thoroughly I rinsed with water it felt like it was not washing out, my hair took forever to dry, and was incredibly weighed down. Therefore, this one was a zero stars for me. The White China Silk was just okay- I would give this a three star. The lather was less sudsy, but I felt like it was more clarifying, and it left my hair with a slick slippery feeling that seemed clean and nourished. Yet there was still a level of heaviness that seemed to weig it down though my hair was very soft after using. I love the smell of this bar. Bella Rosa is the one I like the most so far! It has a really nice lather, minimal build up, and it very hydrating. I like this one a lot and would repurchase this as a full bar! The Hemp and Honey is my next favorite but still a little heavier than I would want from a shampoo. Overall, nice ingredients and would probably purchase the body soaps instead as I have found other shampoo brands that I enjoy over these and work better for my hair.
Honestly, my whole family did, must admit there was a little bit of fighting over the Honey Carrot one. My teen son swooped it up before I could, lol but if a teen boy loves the smell and feel you know its good!
I have been very pleased with my order so far. My hair feels healthier and is shinier than it has been in quite some time.
The shampoo bars do a nice job of cleaning hair without stripping it. I also recommend the jojoba conditioning bar.
I am new to shampoo bars and heard they can take some getting used to. I have used the samples about 5 times now and think I am finally getting the hang of it. I like how my hair feels and looks. I got these more to reduce the number of plastic bottles in my house, but the effects on my hair are an added bonus. My curls seem bouncier and sleeker!
I haven't been through all of the samples yet but I did find my new absolute favorite, grapefruit patchouli. After a two weeks of using these little shampoo bars i knew my hair has never looked or felt, better, my scalp doesn't itch anymore and i don't have any dandruff. I threw out all my chemical laden bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash. I'm never going back to that. Now all I have in my shower is this one little can-do bar and the hair rinse.
I've barely had time to try any more than the sample "sliver" you sent as a bonus. I'm writing this review so you won[t keep reminding me to write a review. They all smell appropriate for a guy.
I ordered 6 sample bars for my boyfriend and I to try. We were interested in two companies, Apple valley being one, and wanted to see what would work best for us. The last company we tried gave our hair loads of shine & volume, and lathered up more. The Apple Valley bars felt very ‘slick’ & didn’t foam as much. They were also more dense to the touch. Upon washing, due to that slick feeling, my hair felt instantly weighed down & the minimal suds disappeared quickly so it felt like I was just scrubbing my head without soap. I tried several different bars & all of them had the same result. I tried air drying & blow drying my hair, but both methods yielded the same results—flat, weighed down hair. For my hair type, at least a little bit of volume/lift is crucial. The bars did clean my hair initially, but by the end of the day I felt like I needed to wash again already (I can usually go every other day). My mid to ends were left frizzy & fly-away, yet also somewhat “stuck” together even with my moisture drench conditioner left on for several minutes after washing. I’m not sure what the differences are with how the two companies make their soaps, but AVNS bars just don’t mesh with my hair (which is long, very fine but lots of it, oily at the scalp & dry at the ends). I will say, that they included a sample of their rosemary lavender coconut body wash bar, and it smells soo heavenly. Better than all of the shampoo bars. It was a bit too drying for my skin, but the smell was so fresh and lovely & it may work better for a different skin type.
I was immediately impressed by the amount of thick lather the shampoo bars made. My hair performs just as it did with the previous products I used. I do have some mild scalp itch with the oily scalp formulation so I wonder if I should try the normal hair formula next.
