    This conditioner is great you only need a small amount to soften your hair and lasts a very long time

    Rose shampoo bar

    This is my first experience with a solid shampoo. It lathers beautifully and leaves my hair light weight. It has a mild rose fragrance, I do wish the rose fragrance was stronger.

    Been using Solibar for around 4 years and very happy to keep purchasing well into the future. Great shampoo and conditioner.

    Blonde Way Or Another SHAMPOO Solibar

    good for hubby

    Regrettably I find Solibar is too harsh for my hair. I purchase it for my hubby who does not mind which variety. He is quite satisfied with the results.

    Great shampoo

    I like the convenience of the solid shampoo bar, particularly when travelling. It makes my hair feel very clean. Very happy with the product.

    Everything here rocks

    Ian so glad I found you guys on a blog post about the no-shampoo movement. Best shampoos and conditioners without sulfates or other crap. My hair is healthier and shinier than it has ever been ! A+++ is what I grade this.

    Rock the Face Bar

    Been using this bar for a couple of years. Love the way it cleanses gently & face feels so smooth after. Sometimes I even forget to moisturise!!. Thanks Em for this nourishing Face Bar. It really Rocks.

    Not for me

    I found that this shampoo stripped my hair to not being able to move it on my scalp, so for me disappointing,
    I gave it to my neighbour who has the same white hair, she loves it and her hair looks lovely after being washed

    Having been using this for a while - love it! Keeps my hair and scalp clean with no build up.

    It works

    Some years ago I watched with alarm as my hair thinned and fell out, leaving an unsightly bald patch on my crown. My research convinced me I had female hereditary baldness and very little could be done. I was wrong. Once I began washing my hair with Solibar exclusively my hair began to thicken and grow back. After about a year I had full coverage and my hair was quite thick. The bald patch was gone, Now, hairdressers often comment on the quality of my hair, given my age (I’m 71). Thank you Solibar.

    Best bars

    I first started using Solibar to cut down on plastics and animal products. I don’t use anything else now and was lucky enough to not go through a transitional process. I used to use a lot of conditioner and now I barely need it. The bars last such a long time too so they are very economical. Plus they smell great.

    If You Like Pina Coladas Shampoo Solibar

    I could not go back to normal shampoo ever! My fine hair has never been better and I don’t need to wash my hair every day anymore! Also love Blond Way Or Another and Lemon-E Blow Ya Mind

    Wonderful Product

    I’ve been using Solibar Blonde Way Shampoo and Conditioner Bars for a few years now. I only use the conditioner on hair ends when using hairdryer. My hair is healthy, the colour treatment lasts longer and I’m very happy to have found Solibar.

    Like it.

    From day one I have had no problems with this bar.

    Rock The Facebar Bundle

    Best face cleanser ever

    This face bar leaves my skin feeling lovely, clean and soft. Since trying it I won’t use any other face cleanser.

    love my purple bars

    I have been using "Blonde another Way' shampoo and conditioner bars for well over two years now. The effect on my hair is wonderful -no more yellowing at the ends of the hair.
    My hairdresser always comments on how healthy my hair looks to her- that says a lot as she doesn't recommend one of her products.
    The hardness of the bars have changed as Solibar has perfected the formula. The shampoo has just the right amount of sudsy-ness. It lasts for longer than it used to which means I get plenty of washes out of it.
    The conditioner bar is much harder and has taken awhile for me to get used to. The conditioner doesn't have the same slipperiness that might be expected from conditioner in the hair, but it is still doing its job. The result is that the conditioner bar lasts easily through 2 shampoo bars. This makes me happy!
    I appreciate the shampoo and conditioner bar system because I really dislike having so much plastic waste.
    Thank you Solibar for solving my hair washing and conditioning.

    Regular purchaser

    I love the simplicity and feel of this face bar.

    Works well

    I use the purple bar. It lathers well the first time around. I'm on my second bar and am completely happy.

    Love these

    This should be a 10 star review! Please fix if it did not come out that way

    I am part of the no-poo movement but the baking soda system wasn’t working. I was so happy to find these bars and they did not disappoint! So happy with how they work! A+ ladies!

    Shampoo and cleanser

    Both are fantastic!!! So pleased I started using the shampoo. Wonderful product!!

    The purple bar

    I have been using purple shampoo for a while and I’ll admit I was sceptical at the price and reliability of the Solibar product. I am now on my second order, and I find Solibar to be very good value for money compared to the store bought similar product and it simply works much better. I used to need to wash my hair almost every day but after a week of Solibar I now wash my hair once a week. So far I’m just onto my second bar and I started using it 8 months ago. I put in my second order which was filled 40 days ago and I’m no where near opening that package. It just lasts for ages. I love the results it gives every time and once I thought it expensive I now think it’s cheap. I recommend this product to all I speak to about hair care. Just keep the bar dry and it just keeps on giving you great results. I use the conditioner as well. Great product and I’m never changing.

    Purple shampoo

    I can’t believe how long my shampoo bar lasts. My first order was 7 months ago and I haven’t finished the second bar or the conditioner yet. It leaves my hair soft and shiny. It’s fabulous. Just ordered and received my second order but I don’t think I’ll open it till way after Xmas. Great value for money and it works just the way you want it to.

    Never going back to bottled stuff. This works really well, and no plastic waste
