Okay so I have had this shampoo bar for a LONG time, waiting for my old commercial stuff to run out, but finally gave in just to try it, and now I think I will just give my old stuff away; I don't want to go back! As many people were, I was sceptical about a shampoo bar, but I followed tips of a few people and let my bar melt in some water overnight, and just kept adding SMALL amounts of water at a time until it was completely melted. Then I literally just dipped a fork in the mix and then wiped a LITTLE at a time into my hands and then into my hair. I have medium length semi wavy Caucasian hair down to my armpits, and I only had to just barely dip about 3-4 times, which used up almost nothing. It didn't really lather, but it went on really well, and I washed it out with a cold citric acid acv rinse, no conditioner to test the product out alone; again I was skeptical because a lot of people said they didn't need conditioner after this; WOW! They were so right! Normally I have a lot of tangles in my hair to brush out that I HAVE to brush it when wet or it will painful to tear at with a brush when dry; I didn't even have to use a brush my hair was so soft, cleansed and perfect!! My hair also wasn't greasy at all, even though it was pretty oily and sweaty from 2 days of not washing and my workout dried in my hair; Wow wow wow!! Never going back!' I already ordered the clarifying one, and I am so excited to trade these off!
