Whats the deal with shampoo bars?

If you are trying to live a more zero waste/ sustainable life then you have probably either switched or thought about switching over to shampoo bars. As someone who has been using shampoo bars for almost 2 years now I can definitely say that I have had no problem with the switch! I mostly use bars from LUSH, but thats just a personal preference. 

However, with that said I am not such a fan of conditioner bars. I have tried about 4 different kinds of bars and I still see my reaching over for conditioner bottles. I don't know what it is about conditioner bars but they just don't later on for me. I have tried everything from rubbing is straight on my hair to chopping it up into pieces, but so far no luck. 

Here's my review on the LUSH Argan oil conditioner bar:

1. It smells great!

2. Does not lather on to my hand or hair very well

3. It lasts a long time, but I think that's cause you can't get it to sud up

4. Melts fast if left in water (but thats all bars)

5. Leaves my hair feeling dry

So with that said, I still do love LUSH products. Like mentioned before, the shampoo bars are great and I use them plus other products all the time. It's just the conditioner bar thats a no go for me. I am still on the hunt for a conditioner bar that I genuinely enjoy using. I try to make the current ones work cause I still don't want to buy bottled conditioner. Or maybe I'll have to try making my own! 

Let me know if you have found any shampoo or conditioner bars that are worth trying out :)
