    I’m totally converted! Won’t be using anything else ever again. I have had a really sensitive dry, itchy scalp for years and have had no success in finding anything to solve it or sooth it previously, and I also have quite nutty frizzy hair. I chose to try this because I knew the chemicals in ordinary shampoos were probably part of the problem with my skin and this shampoo bar has sorted all of those problems and more and in such a short space of time! It’s instantly soothed my scalp and softened my locks so much whilst making them squeaky clean. I genuinely didn’t expect such a fantastic result from a little bar but it really is wonderful. I love it!

    Thank you so much for the feedback Philippa, we’re so pleased you like our shampoo bar!

    Love this. I’m curly and really didn’t think shampoo would make a difference to having a good curl or a bad curl hair day. I thought it was all about product. This shampoo bar smells great, is good on the environment and leaves me with fabulous unfrizzy curls. I’ve sent a bar to my favourite curly friend. Try it.

    Hi Karen, thanks so much for your feedback, that’s lovely!

    I ordered this for my daughter who has long, thick, wavy hair. This is the only shampoo that has tamed her frizz! She loves it and is looking forward to trying the conditioner bars once they are launched.

    That’s great to hear, thank you so much Jane x

    I’m 55. Grew up with natural curly hair that nobody knew how to handle. My gran who was a hair dresser in the ’30s would suppress it into a block of frizz. In the 80s I started going to black hair dressers who knew how to handle my hair and I discovered black hair products. But still it was a battle and an expensive one at that to keep my curls curls and not resemble a brillo pad. Then I discovered frizzease and serum which were very expensive, made my hair look great for a day and then either greasy and lank or back to frizz. I thought I’d found the perfect solution when a friend introduced me to DevaCurl. I spent hundreds of pounds importing litre bottles from the USA. Then came lockdown, economic pressures and I chanced upon your site and was curious about your soap for hair. I really don’t have the words to describe how perfect it is. No other product has ever left my hair feeling clean while preserving the curls. My partner is convinced my hair has grown stronger and longer. If I had the address for every person in the UK with curly hair I would personally write to them to say buy this product. Curly girls know this matters! Every day now is a good hair day and that’s NEVER happened before!

    Wow, Alison, thank you so much for getting in touch, that’s fantastic! We’re so glad it is making a difference for you xx

    I have tried other shampoo bars, but this one creates a lovely lather and leaves my hair feeling clean and soft – which is good for my curls.

    Hi Katie,

    Thank so much for your comment, we’re so glad you like the CC bar!

    This lathered really well (I get soft water) and has left my curls more defined than anything else I’ve tried. Just for context, I’m a 3A curly girl. With this being SLS, paraben, palm oil, plastic and cruelty free, I can’t recommend it enough! Been recommending it to all my curly friends and only wish I’d discovered it sooner!

  12. Sophie

    Thank you so much Lauren, that’s wonderful to hear! X

    I love this shampoo bar, my previously frizzy hair has become lovely and curly! My hairdresser was full of compliments too. The bar smells amazing and makes showering a much more relaxing experience. I’ve also swapped from using a normal towel on my hair to an old cotton pillowcase, it seems to keep the shape of my curls in place and eliminate any possible frizz. No going back to bottles for me!
    PS I would LOVE a conditioning bar too please !!!
