Hair & Body Bar - Ylang Ylang & Lime
Solid shampoo bar
This shampoo bar is a great and convenient way to wash your hair and body. Okay, we admit that when we first came across this idea, we were a bit sceptical. Could a soap bar really work on hair as well? But, once we tried it, we were convinced. Our Hair & Body Bar has been made with even more glycerine than our normal soaps – and the result is a bar that lathers richly and rinses to a squeak without stripping your scalp's natural oils. It's very popular with men as it's so unfussy and because it's also brilliant for shaving. Less bulky for travelling and just plain handy for showers. Give it a go: we reckon you'll become a staunch solid shampoo fan, too.

Product Testimonials Hair & Body Bar - Ylang Ylang & Lime
Used this on my hair and body. My scalp was highly irritated after using this and unsure why. Smells great and lathers well but for me only useful as a soap. Bit disappointed really.
I wasn't sure if this would work on hair as well as you said it would, but it lathered up beautifully and my hair was left amazingly clean and soft. Fabulous! Really quick and easy - I'm going to buy the lemongrass one next!
I have been using these for a while now and love them. The best shampoo bar I've used and to be able to use as a soap too is great.
