worth it for the price
bought this bar because i was looking for an alternative in replace of the other bar i was using since they changed their formulation. i expected very little for this bar because the other bars that i serially purchased had almost all the same issues: too high pH, leaves the hair sticky and brittle. BUT i was surprised with how this shampoo bar was gentle on the scalp and it lathers well. packaging wise, it is 5/5. i was impressed because it came in a sturdy box and was wrapped in glossy (?) paper that would ensure the oils will not transfer to the paper. the bar itself is well packed. it doesn't crumble or fall apart when wet. however, the fragrance is too strong for my liking. i tested how it feels on first rinse by placing the bar under running water, and i was surprised because a deep yellow pigment transferred on my hand but otherwise was easy to rinse off. this is still my first time using it and i did not apply conditioner to see how it goes. if your concern is whether this bar makes hair brittle or sticky, rest assured that there were none of those.
overall, this has a higher quality than the bars that i have tested before. will try the other fragrances to see how they are. i just wish that they would formulate fragrances that is more woody/earthy in smell, like sandalwood, bergamot or patchouli.
