Pin It Now!
For my whole entire life, I have been disgruntled with my flat, lifeless hair. Seriously. Then along came the "thinning shears", which helped a bit. My hair would bounce for a few weeks, before falling back into it's flat state again. Humidity makes it especially challenging, as I often end up with "helmet hair" (a term developed by my very creative son). I know my curly-headed friends have their own problems, but how I have wished for curly hair many a time!
And then something changed.
About a year ago, I went on Pinterest and saw a recipe for a shampoo bar. It looked like a bar of soap but it was for your hair. I pinned it and didn't think a whole lot more about it. I have never taken the time to make it to this day.
But when, a few months ago, I was ordering a few other things, I happened upon J.R. Liggett's Herbal Shampoo Bar and decided to give it a try. Pinterest had made me curious. Could a bar of shampoo actually work? I had been reading about the unnecessary (and possibly dangerous) fillers in shampoo and had been looking for a different option.
It arrived and I started using it. It felt very different than regular shampoo as I scrubbed it into my hair. It gave a nice lather, but it made my hair feel different. I wasn't sure what that meant.
Well, I found out what it meant. As I dried my hair that first time, I was pleasantly surprised with how good it looked. As the day went on, it continued to look pretty good. Hmm. I kind of figured it was a fluke.
But then, as day after day passed, my hair continued to style easily and consistently stayed full of body throughout the whole day. In fact, I am a day away from my hair appointment and my hair still looks good. It is like a miracle. I have spent years trying to wait out haircuts--even buying my own thinning shears and thinning it so that I could make it a full six weeks between haircuts.
After a few weeks, I told my mom to give it a try. She, too, has struggled with her hair. She called me up and told me that it worked great for her, too, and that she had even had a couple of compliments on her hair!
I am not sure what this shampoo would work like for my curly-headed or long-haired friends. But if you are someone who has short hair without a lot of body, I would highly, highly recommend this bar.
I know I sound like a commercial, but I am truly so impressed with this product that I had to share it! It really is magical! :)
