And that's Lush's shampoo bar.
I go through shampoo really quickly, on account of my swimming and needing to wash the chlorine from my head every second day. I felt a little guilty about all the plastic bottles I was throwing away, and the shampoo bar offered me a small way to cut back on the waste I personally produce. The shampoo bar doesn't come with any packaging. You have to by a small round tin to carry the thing in.
I chose the bar titled Jason and the Argan Oil not least of all because of the name, but also because it contained argan oil. I don't use conditioner (I stopped a long while ago, and found that my hair has improved without it), but I do need plenty of moisture for my hair. My previous shampoo also had argan oil, and I really liked it. I was looking for something similar.
The reviews were all pretty positive, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I bought it (and the little round tin), and I've been using it for about a week or so now.
I honestly did not think it was up to the task. Well, guys, my hair is so soft. Even though I swim every second day and get chlorine in my hair a lot. This shampoo bar, it really works.
For the record, I have baby fine hair (like stupidly fine), but there's lots of it. I cannot speak to how this shampoo bar will work for other hair types.
Still, consider me impressed.
I really like that because this shampoo is solid, you can move it around your head and get it into places that liquid shampoo doesn't seem to go easily. It sounds counter-intuitive, but I've always had problems getting the hair the the bottom back of the head properly cleaned without using a copious amount of shampoo. It always winds up still a little oily after a wash.
Despite being solid, it works up a great lather, and it really does clean well. It doesn't have that weird, slick feeling of conditioner after the shower. My hair is squeaky clean. But once dry, however, my hair gets really soft.
The fragrance could be better. I wish it smelled more like roses and less like jam (the scent is literally called rose jam), but that is a small gripe. It's not terrible, just a little... jammier than I would like. They promote it as smelling a little of lemon-rose, which would be an amazing combination if that's what it actually smelled like. It does not.
So, yeah. I'd recommend this one, guys. It does the job, my hair feels great, and I feel a bit better for cutting back a little bit on the waste I'm producing. On step at a time, not matter how small.

Right, I have work to do.
