    Popular choices around here are:
    Chagrin Valley
    Prairie Land Herbs
    Sweet Creek Herbs
    Henna Sooq
    Apple Valley Soaps

    There are, of course, many other vendors online and on Etsy, but those above are the ones that tend to come up most frequently.

    I want to give shampoo bars another go, I am trying to use up some stuff, I have an obcene amount of stuff that I am just not using, I always seem to go and buy more even if I don't really need it!
    I have 5, yes 5, butter shampoo bars from CV, these are beautiful but I am going to use a conditioner (cone free) after them as I hate the smell of vinegar rinses, they ALWAYS hang around smell wise even when I rinse, I figure that most conditioners have citric acid in them these days so it should be fine!

    Gilly I stopped using vinegear as my rinse a long time ago. The smell just got to me one day. I can barely even use it in cooking now either.

    I'll just use regular (cone free) conditioner. Sometimes I use fresh lemon or lime. I also keep the little squeeze bottle container of lemon/lime on hand in case I need a rinse and haven't purchased any fresh ones. It's mostly citric acid in those.

    I tried a shampoo bar for the first time last night, I bought one with cassia in it from mehandi.com
    I liked the scent, and it lathered nicely but once my hair dried it was very filmy even though I had rinsed really well. So this morning I got in the shower re-wet my hair and tried a HALO rinse. It did get rid of the filminess, but left my hair *very* oily. So far shampoo bar is an epic fail for me. I CO washed this afternoon to get the oil out, and I'll try the bar again next wash day without the oil in the HALO rinse and see what happens...

    Hello everyone! I'm looking to try shampoo bars myself, and am wanting to buy a few Chargin Valley sample bars. However, I'm pretty lost on where to start. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for CV shampoo bars for my type of hair.
    My hair is very fine, tangle prone, wavy/curly, thick, and extremely dry. It hates protein but loves moisture.

    Any suggestions? Thanks everyone!

    Soap making is a lot of fun. If any of you get a chance to try it out, please do. You'll really like it but you have to be really safe about it because lye is no joke. I even got some neem oil recently to think of a new recipe to use it with, but people weren't joking when they said it stinks. PHEW! you'd need a lot of other items in there to make it smell yummy.

    I agree Henna Song, I just made two batches today, one including tea tree oil that almost gave me soap on a stick, lol. Waiting to see how it cures, cross your fingers!
    Where did you get the neem oil, I had a bar from another maker that my hair loved but I have yet to have found the neem oil around here.
    I have to admit I have been super bad and using my shampoos way to early, my ends are yelling at me!

    Soap on a stick lol!!

    I have had some really oily batches but unfortunately they didn't up up curing well...it hurts me when I mess up a batch as I don't do a lot of small batches but a whole log usually. It hurts me meaning I feel so bad. What I have trouble deciding on is like scents...it's hard for me to decide sometimes what smells are really acceptable.
