Marcia is using Raspberry Shortbread Shampoo Bar
If you are a Beauty Info Zone reader then you know that I’m extremely fussy about fragrance in products. That’s never been a problem for me before with Humboldt Soap Company so it was interesting to try the Raspberry Shampoo Bar and see what my nose and hair thought. Note that this is Fragrance Phthalate-Free.
Raspberries contain folic acid which is great for inducing hair growth
and making your hair shinier. Raspberries also contain vitamin C which
has been shown to be very beneficial in maintaining a healthy scalp.
The way to use this bar is to wet your hands and hair and then massage the bar onto your head. Work it in to achieve the amount of lather that you like though I never get a lot of lather. This is a great scalp cleanser as well as hair cleanser. Rinse well after and you are ready for your favorite style. Since my hair tangles easily I used a light conditioner after but that’s all I needed. I was able to comb through my hair with ease and without having to add any styling creams or gels.
Since I had a keratin straightening treatment about a month ago this information is very important to me: Vegan Friendly Keratin Protein extract of corn, wheat and soy to strengthen and enhance the elasticity of individual hair strands and reduce the “fly away” hair syndrome. As an additional benefit, keratin protein holds antioxidant benefits.
I wash my hair 2 – 3 times a week and am looking for shiny easy to manage hair. Humboldt makes that easy by using great ingredients like this: Macadamia Nut Oil fatty acid content is the real winner for skin and hair. Those fatty acids help to add shine, strengthen, and nourish the hair follicles, which in turn fight off hair loss and brittle strands. Macadamia oil is great for calming the hair of frizz, tangles, and
Amla Oil helps get rid of dry flakes from the scalp and dissolves grease and dirt from the follicles, improving overall scalp health.
What did I find using this? First I really enjoyed the fragrance of it since it was a true raspberry and not a sickly imitation. It made my shower time delightful. I was concerned that my shoulder length hair wouldn’t be soft and silky afterward but that was a mistake. I didn’t feel the need for a styling product which is a miracle. With my Wet Brush I was able to comb through with ease. And I enjoyed how my hair looked shiny and smelled great. The fragrance was noticeable to me for about half an hour and then I didn’t really notice it much. I actually wish it lasted longer since it’s so refreshing.
Lisa is using Mango Madness Shampoo Bar
I love the idea of shampoo bars – they are perfect for transport and environmentally conscious. They are great for camping out or for plane travel since there is no danger of leaking. Kids love them, and it makes bath time much easier. Plus, really good shampoo bars leave hair smelling great while also rinsing out clean. My Humboldt Mango Madness Shampoo Bar lived up to my expectations for a shampoo bar and then some.
The Humboldt Shampoo Bars are discs of shampoo that are extremely condensed, about 60 to 100 times. In fact, one bar has roughly the same amount of shampoo as three regular plastic bottles of shampoo. This means that when you use a Humboldt Shampoo Bar, you are doing your part for the environment and reducing the amount of plastic waste. I do recommend that you use a special soap dish for your shampoo bar, like the one I have pictured below – it’s called a Soap Lift ($6) and it really increases the life of your bar.
The Mango Madness Bar smells fabulous – it has a true mango scent that smells like a ripe, rich mango. Mango is an excellent ingredient because it has tons of vitamin C which keeps your hair and scalp healthy. It also has vitamin A, which is particularly good in a shampoo because it helps hair growth and it assists with sebum production, the stuff that keeps your scalp from getting dry and scaly.
If you have long hair like I do, there is a secret trick to using the Mango Madness Shampoo Bar. If you rub the bar on your head like you’d think you should, you will find that long hair gets all tangled up and becomes a rather awkward experience. The trick for those with hair longer than shoulder length is to get your hair wet then smooth the bar straight down from crown to ends.
Tangles shouldn’t be a problem if you use the bar correctly, plus the Mango Madness Shampoo Bar has a detangling weapon ingredient – Abyssinian Oil, which also makes hair feel smooth and look shiny.
The Mango Madness Shampoo Bar leaves my hair feeling clean but not squeaky. It has a lot of emollient ingredients, like cetyl alcohol and BTMS-50 that condition and moisturize hair. Plus it has panthenol, which helps hair retain moisture. When I use my Mango Madness Shampoo Bar, I only need to add conditioner to my ends which are always very dry. I have colored hair and this bar is definitely mild enough and conditioning enough to make my hair vibrant. Overall, my hair smells fantastic and looks great – soft and shiny.
