Yes. Yes, yes!

Alright, let’s start with background info. My hair, for reference, is type 2A, greasy scalp, dry ends, low porosity hair. My hair is not coloured and I do not have any chemical treatments on my hair. I am 36 and the grey is coming in fast and furious, and yup, it’s coarse. It is also worth mentioning that I live in an area with the hardest possible water, limestone deposits everywhere. Why does this matter, oh, it matters huge because it makes the hair frizzy and dry.
I have tried at least 10-12 different shampoo bars and they all ended up leaving my hair either too oily, too dry, gummy, sticky, stinky (too much perfume) or insanely itchy.
This shampoo bar is by far, the best out there. I have no incentives to say this, it literally is the best, especially if your hair type is similar to mine and you live in an area with hard water.
My hair feels soft, but not oily, my ends moisturized but not stuck together, my scalp no longer itches and I love the very light scent this bar has. Also, l recently developed a severe allergy to rose oil, which seems to be in everything these days, thankfully this bar does not contain rose oil. Not only will I use this bar until it is completely gone, I will also be repurchasing in the future. Last, I love the face wash sample I received in my order. I plan on ordering more of that too.
Thank you for making a quality product : )

Hi Karen, thank you so much for the awesome review! Reading it literally made my day. Thanks so much for the background on your hair type and hard water situation as well, it is helpful to hear firsthand how the bars perform in various conditions. I’m so happy you love the shampoo bar and I so appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. All the best! - Terri

I have super curly hair and somehow this shampoo bar tamed my frizz and left me with super soft bouncy curls. My boyfriend even uses it on his beard and loves it!

Problem Solver Shampoo Bar

By far the best shampoo bar I have ever used. It lathers nicely, smells great and leaves my scalp feeling soothed. I highly recommend!

I had such an itchy, flaky head after washing my hair. With my shampoo and conditioner bars, my hair is soft and clean with no itchiness afterwards. I am very pleased and happy. I greatly recommend your products.

This is the best shampoo I have ever used. It laters up very quickly and is creamy feeling. It rinses out easily and leaves my hair feeling great. Also has been amazing for controlling my flakey scalp. I highly recommend this product.
