For those who buy soap bars...

I want to give soap bars a chance again on my hair. Does anyone on here buy soap bars in their local area? I know I can do CV or get them from Kathymack but I find that I am very sensitive to smells so it is easiest for me to find them in person.

Anyone with experience?

    Whole Foods has several great natural soap bars and JR Liggett's Shampoo Bars.

    I bought a shampoo bar on Etsy and it comes in an unscented version. It is a sulfate free synthetic shampoo bar.

    I also bought a soap shampoo bar at my farmers market which has all local vendors.
    Using FIA: 2b/2a mix with a few ringlets in the canopy, straighter in the under layer by my neck. Thin in density, fine strands. Normal porosity. Hennaed.

    Go To's: Aveda, Lush

    My hair is wavy/curly and I really like the Bobeam shampoo bars on Etsy. There is a long thread on 4A that will give you good info. What you might like in particular is they are very mildly scented, I can't even detect much scent at all. They just smell natural to me. The owner, Laquita, is a sweetheart!

    2c/3a - fine - medium porosity & density

    Not to steal this thread but just curious. I've been wondering about shampoo bars and how they're used and what the perks are

    Kathymack still sells them and I am sure she can help you find the right bar. None I have ordered from her are highly scented.
