Too soft, strips oil from hair, and it stinks...
I purchased this in mid July, as I was looking for a shampoo that I could use on occasion as my hair is really oily. I didn't want to strip it like most shampoos do leaving it straw like, and this sounded like it might work. I have short hair (just over an inch on top, less than half an inch on sides and back, and this bar has not lasted me any where near as long as a 24oz bottle of shampoo (I can get almost 6 months out of a bottle washing every other day). This bar is about shot and it has been just under two months with washing hair every other day, and it strips oils just like the chemical shampoos, I will say that it isn't nearly as bad, but it still is drying and leaves hair near straw like for me. It also wreaks, with the peppermint smell being barely noticeable over the strong vegetable oil/cooking oil smell that the bar gives off. If you do want to try this, I would suggest keeping it out of the shower, and in its own air tight container after you have dried the bar off, otherwise it will break down/melt on you and be a waste of money. Personally, I will keep looking for a better product that gives me at least some of what I want (something that lasts as long as it states, something that doesn't strip natural oils, something that actually smells nice). I can't recommend this one at all.

Olive oil based shampoo is awesome!
Never spill or break a bottle again. Great for travel. Can be used on your hair and body. I have even used it for shaving cream. Any of them are great but the peppermint is relaxing aromatherapy. I lather up twice per shower and often take a second shower per day and a bar lasts me at least 3 weeks. Best deals at Vitacost.

Nice smelling frugal shampoo
This shampoo is a frugal alternative to other "natural shampoos." It only takes a small lather to get your hair clean, and it smells great. I follow shampooing with a vinegar rinse, and have smooth clean hair! I didn't give an excellent score because I think a little more jojoba oil would make this bar perfect while providing just a hint more conditioning. I have fine long (middle of the back) hair.

My hair looks great!
I recently underwent major surgery, and you wouldn't believe how badly it messed up my hair. It was lifeless, brittle and dull and I've been afraid to try anything to improve it, for fear of making it worse.
Based on the reviews, I decided to take a chance on this shampoo bar, and I'm very happy that I did. It cleans my hair thoroughly but doesn't strip out the natural oils or dry it out. My hair looks better now than it has since I left the hospital. And it doesn't have a strong fragrance, which I also appreciate.
The bar seems to be long-lasting and I expect to get at least as many uses from it as I would from a standard-sized bottle of shampoo.
I'm very happy that I found this product!
