“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.”
Wet hair – gently rub shampoo bar around edges until lather is created — massage scalp with palms of your fingers and rinse. Repeat if necessary.
Essential oils/additives: Goat’s milk, honey, almond oil
Shampoo bar ingredients: saponified vegetable oils, mainly coconut oil, glycerin (kosher or vegetable origin), honey, purified water, sorbital (berries, moisturizer), sorbitan oleate (emulsifier), soybean protein (conditioner).
I’ve wanted to try shampoo bars for a while now and after reading quite a bit on the benefits of goat’s milk for hair (it’s supposed to be very moisturizing) spotting this bar online peaked all my interests.
How I use: after rinsing out whatever pre-poo I’ve used for the day (oil, conditioner, or both) I wet the bar and gently rub the bar down the length of my hair, first the white side and then the side of honey. Because I wash my hair in sections (6), to cleanse my scalp I simply rub the bar against my hair. This shampoo bar lathers up very easily and the bar allows me to control where I’m directing the lather.
As I mentioned in my last wash day post, after the first lather this shampoo bar leaves my hair soft, yet well cleansed. However after lathering up a second time, it leaves my hair squeaky clean (it feels like it removed any drop of oil or product) and a bit stripped. Because I pre-poo prior to using this shampoo bar, whatever pre-poo I use creates a protective layer which I think prevents my hair from feeling super clean/a bit stripped after the first lather.
I think this shampoo bar works well, but within certain limits: only one lather and only after pre-pooing (I would not use this on “naked” un-prepooed hair). I do not plan on using this shampoo bar regularly. I’ll reserve for when my hair has quite a bit of build up and only after pre-pooing with oil or conditioner. As for how it works on my relaxed hair vs my natural hair: it works the same. There wasn’t much difference in results between the two textures.
I’ve also used it as body soap haha. My skin felt a bit tight afterwards but it got the job done. Will I repurchase? Mostly likely no. It cleanses well but it’s not really something that makes my “staples” list. I have two other Bobeam shampoo bars to try — AVC & Bentonite Clay Bar and the Coco Honey & Amla Conditioning Bar (which I’m hoping will more conditioning than the Goat’s Milk bar) — so I’ll have more Bobeam reviews for you in the future.
Have you tried this shampoo bar? Liked it? Love it? Left it?
