Today I'm back with another product review. This time I will be reviewing the Chai Tea and Flax Seed Oil Shampoo Bar from Belle Vie Soaps. I was sent one to test out and give my honest review by the owner, Khadijah. This was my first time trying a shampoo bar, so I was super excited!
When using a shampoo bar, you want to start off by cutting the bar into small sections, as pictured below. Each small piece can be used for 2-3 washes.
Size: Around 5oz, sample sizes are also available
Availability: BelleVieSoaps on Etsy
Packaging: The solid shampoo bar comes wrapped in plastic. It is also carefully wrapped in bubble wrap to ensure that it doesn't get damaged while shipping.
Key Ingredients: Flax seed oil, Jojoba oil, Sunflower oil, Olive oil, Chai tea infused Flax seed oil, loose Chai tea, Frankincense essential oil.
Claim: "Belle Vie Soaps shampoo bars are formulated to produce large amounts of lather. The soft foamy lather gently cleanses the hair, without leaving it feeling striped of all of its natural oils. This shampoo bar contains essential fatty acids and herbs, designed to help restore shine and body to hair that has become dry and dull."
Fragrance: Light yet earthy
Results: This shampoo bar produced a large amount of lather, which I loved. I could actually see it coating my hair and feel it working its magic. Most shampoos strip my hair of its natural oils but since this shampoo bar is made of all natural oils, it made my hair feel soft and moisturized. I also noticed that my hair was easier to detangle and that my curls were defined and clumped while using it.
Washing the shampoo out was very quick and easy. After rinsing it out my hair was cleansed, soft, and moisturized.
Overall: I would certainly purchase a shampoo bar from Belle Vie Soaps, since my hair loved it and it would last much longer than my bottles of shampoo would. I also love that the shampoo bars are ALL NATURAL! My scalp was clean and fresh, my hair felt great, what more could you want from a shampoo?
