I love handmade body and beauty products because they are made with safe ingredients that I can pronounce. I also love supporting small businesses because I know that someone has created a product that they put a lot of time and effort in to perfecting and are passionate about their craft. Small companies, like Maple Hill Naturals, notoriously offer quality products.
Maple Hill Naturals offers handmade, natural products including dryer balls, lip balm, and a variety of soaps. They use minimal, natural ingredients in all of their products. I was really excited to have the opportunity to review Maple Hill Naturals Shampoo & Conditioning Bars.
To be honest, I was not sure how I would like using a shampoo bar and worried if it would get my hair feeling clean enough or leave it too oily. I was excited to give it a try as I prefer to use as many non-toxic products as I can in our home and especially on our bodies. I sampled the Lavender Vanilla Dream, Peppermint, and Honest For Men Shampoo & Conditioning Bars. They all smelled wonderful in the box. Being scented with essential oils gives them a true scent that is not overwhelming unlike artificial fragrances which linger way too long for my liking.
I wet the bar and rubbed it in my hands to get a good lather then rubbed my hands on my hair. I found I needed to lather it a few times to get enough for my whole head. It does not lather as much as a regular shampoo does, but that is also because all of those toxic chemicals that I can’t really pronounce are missing from this bar. I haven’t found a natural soap that lathers like a store bought one. However, not having a big lather does not mean this product isn’t doing its job. Once I rinsed the soap out it definitely felt clean. My hair did not have that silky, salon type feel but it was clean, not oily and had a little more texture to it. After washing, it was easily styled as normal and I didn’t notice much of a difference which is a good thing because I wasn’t trying to change my hair style, just my shampoo!
I am pleased with Maple Hill Naturals Shampoo & Conditioning Bars. They are very affordable at $5.99 per bar or you can purchase a value pack of 5 bars for 25% off at $22.46. One bar has lasted several weeks with me washing my hair every 2 or 3 days so you can be sure to get your money’s worth. Another score in detoxing my house by finding a non-toxic shampoo product!
