My sister has been going “natural” for a few years now. She researches everything and will only buy natural products. We were talking the other day and I mentioned that I had discovered some lovely looking shampoo bars on Etsy and wondered if she’d like to try it. After a lot of scouring of ingredients and umming and aaaahhhing we stumbled upon AromaVille who are based in High Wycombe (UK).
We were really impressed with the quality, range and ingredients! I ordered the Hops Hemp Honey palm free shampoo bar as I liked the combination of ingredients. My sister ordered the Rosemary Nettle Aloe Vera palm free shampoo bar.
The price of these bars was really reasonable £3.50 each plus £2.70 postage. They arrived beautifully wrapped and smelt divine!
I’ve been hesitant to use a shampoo bar before as I’ve always figured you don’t get a lot for your money but a lot of makers claim they can last 1-2 months so this is on a par with bottled shampoos. Of course it does depend how often you shampoo and how long/thick your hair is or if you live in a hard or soft water area!!
The first time I used this I wasn’t too sure what to do so I made sure my hair was really wet and rubbed it into my hair, I then massaged it in further as I would with a normal shampoo. I was surprised at how well this mixed into my hair as, usually, I find the first wash doesn’t seem to sink in and I have to do a second! The smell of this shampoo is gorgeous and reminds me of one that my mother used on us as kids. It also lingers a lot more than any other shampoo I’ve used and I continued to get lovely whiffs all through the day even after using a conditioner!
My hair felt so clean and the shampoo washed out really well which was a concern as I live in a soft water area. I definitely needed a conditioner with this (mainly due to my hair being dyed!), but the differences in the feeling of residue was amazing. I really had to work to get rid of the conditioner and I hadn’t used as much whereas the shampoo washed out quickly and didn’t feel heavy at all.
I absolutely love this product and I’m really pleased I tried it. The great news is they ship all over the place 🙂 and a number of their products are vegan!!!
I also got a shave bar which I’ll review soon.
