Every since Ebony of Longing4Length posted about her love for Obia Naturals Coconut Shea Shampoo Bar, trying out shampoo bars has been on my wish list for months. I took the plunge and grabbed some shampoo bars from Bobeam.
Bobeam has a number of shampoo bars to choose from… that I’m sure I’ll eventually get around to trying if I end up loving these. Here are the bars I bought:
Price: $7.00 / 5.8oz
Bobeam’s blurb: Balance your hair’s pH while detoxing all at once. This 5.8oz bar contains apple cider vinegar (ACV) that is infused with Sage, Peppermint, Rosemary and Hibiscus. The acidity in apple cider vinegar is close to that of our natural hair. It conditions, cleans and kills germs. It also helps balance the pH of hair and removes build-up. Bentonite Clay is high in minerals such as magnesium, potassium and silica. It is natural aniseptic, detoxifier/draws our impurities, good for dry itchy scalp.
My tried and true clarifying/chelating shampoo is Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo but it’s on the pricey side. I’ve been interested in finding a cheaper/all natural way to remove building from my hair so all my interested peaked when I saw this bar listed on Bobeam.
Price: $7.00 / 5.8oz bar
Bobeam’s blurb: Virgin Coconut Oil – soothes, nourishes strengthens, conditions, imparts shine, softens and helps retain moisture.
Palm Oil – contains tocotrienols (members of the vitamin E family) which help fight free radicals, antioxidant, nourishes the hair and scalp. It contains Beta-carotene (our body’s converts it into Vitamin A) and encourages hair growth in thinning hair.
African Wild Honey – 100% all natural, unpasteurized, unfiltered, and unheated therefore it retains all of its natural minerals, amino acids, vitamins. It’s a natural humectant (retains moisture) and has natural antioxidant properties and antimicrobial properties; its naturally high acidity (low pH). Moisturizes, softens and imparts shine.
Amla Oil – high in fatty acids, Vitamin C. Used in Ayurvedic medicine it strengthens conditions and nourishes hair shaft and helps treat dry, itchy scalp. It’s antifungal and antibacterial treats dandruff.
Price: $6.90 / 5.8oz bar
Bobeam’s blurb: This Goat’s Milk & Honey Shampoo Bar is super moisturizing. It’s a combination of goat’s milk and honey and almond oil. There is an extra dollop of honey in each layer. Goat’s milk contains Vitamins A, B6, B12 and E. It hydrates, balances pH and exfoliates dry skin.
This is the shampoo bar I was most interested in trying. I’ve read/heard quite a bit on the benefits of goat’s milk for tresses and that extra layer of honey (humectant) looks yummy. I think I’m going to rotate using this shampoo with co-washing.
