Ciao bellas! Have you entered my Blog-iversay Giveaway yet?! It ends soon!!!
Awhile back, I posted about my splurge on Chagrin Valley shampoo bars (well not really a splurge because they weren’t expensive at all!) and I am posting the final bar. In case you are new to La Coco Bella (heeeeyyyy!!), shampoo bars are the ONLY shampoos I use to wash. I don’t use liquid shampoos..just bars. They are so much fun to use lol and much better for your hair. Less drying/stripping and more beneficial. Plus there are SOOOOOO many kinds out there and they are way cheaper than liquids and last much longer! All around win! :o)
Ok anywho, this bar is actually the one I was most excited about trying from CV, which is why I saved it for last (weird, I know, most people would try it first huh lol). This shampoo bar is the Honey, Beer & Egg shampoo bar. I bought the sample 1.5 oz. size which retails for $2.70. You can also get the full 7 oz. bar for $7.85.
I think the beer is what attracted me most lol and I love anything with honey ***SIDEBAR — I actually started washing my face (yup! Google it!) with raw honey and can for the first time say in years that I have not had a breakout in like 2 weeks. I almost ALWAYS have at least 1-2 pimples on my face on any given day. The honey in conjunction with turmeric powder and this ayurvedic facial bar, I am fading my acne scars as well!! Oh, and in case you missed the other bars I reviews, you can check them out at the links below (I also reviewed a couple of their complexion soaps which are tacked on to the posts below):
Beer and egg yolk create a mild, protein rich shampoo that adds shine, bounce and body to your hair. The proteins from the malt, hops condition hair and help repair damage. Vitamin rich eggs revitalize dull and dry hair and improve texture. Enriched with cocoa butter to provide deep nourishment for the hair shaft.
Saponified oils of rice bran, organic palm, coconut, castor bean, cocoa butter, jojoba, mango butter; beer; organic free range eggs; raw honey; aloe vera; rosemary oil extract
This bar has officially made it to my top favs! Look at the ingredient list! I could almost go without conditioner which is amazing to me. I always use conditioner though because I never pass up a chance to use conditioner lol but I was amazed at how my hair felt as I was rinsing it out of my hair. Normally shampoo bars give you that “dry” feeling (which goes away right when you apply conditioner) but not with this! Of course it cleaned my hair really well, and as with all the other CV shampoo bars, I only have to lather up one time and the soap rinses out clear.
Now this shampoo is definitely protein rich due to the eggs and the malt from the beer, so if you have protein sensitivities just beware of that. CV does have an Extra Honey Beer bar without the egg in case you still want the beer and honey benefits without the extra protein from the egg. Since my hair tends to respond well to protein in moderation, this worked extremely well. For those of you who may not know, BEER works wonders for hair lol It makes your hair extremely shiny because it closes the hair cuticle. So in turn, your hair becomes vibrant as protein helps fill in any weak parts of the hair shaft. I also found this bar to be very moisturizing as well since it contains the honey and aloe vera.
LOOOOOOVE Chagrin Valley shampoo bars!!! OH and GUESS what kind of bar they just came out with??? HENNA!!!! DEFINITELY on my “To Try” list hehehe. I am still not sure how I feel about using henna regularly but if I can get the conditioning benefits without the “side effects” lol I am all for it….when I buy the henna bars ya’ll will be the first to know! :o)
