I might be getting on the shampoo bar wagon. Especially when it comes to traveling, they are a much neater option and easier to take on your carry on bag since it's a solid.

And now that I wash my hair in the sink, they seem like an easier option than my castile soap mixture which is a liquid and creates a major mess since switching washes to the sink (LOL).

I've heard great things about shampoo bars made with all natural ingredients. They lather up well, don't contains any harmful ingredients or preservatives, and cleanse your hair without stripping it. Many users boast that some can double up as detangler as well.
Oyin Handmade Grand Poo Bar-Succulent Solid Shampoo
My only concern, do they cause build up over time?
Last summer I used an ayurvedic shampoo bar and at first I thought it was the shizz till 2 weeks later, my hair felt waxy and like it wasn't getting clean anymore. It became a nightmare and not only did I have to stop using it, I had to clarify a quite a few times after I discontinued use to get my hair back to how it was before I started using the bar. Sheesh!
I'm thinking though, since I do ACV rinses with every wash that I shouldn't have this problem? Guess there's only one way to find out for sure....
Have any of you used these bars before? If so, please share your results!
