JR Liggets Old Fashioned Bar Shampoo Moisturizing Formula Review

Does anyone else get sucked into those quick recipe videos on Facebook (Tastemade, Tasty). It usually starts with me just watching one, then the next thing I know I've watched about 5, 10, and on and on. Those videos will have you thinking you can cook everything quick and easy. I usually get sucked into those right before I'm supposed to do a blog post, but not today! I'll just wait until after...

JR Ligget claims:

Vitamin E - Aloe Vera - Almond Oil are added to our original shampoo formulation to moisturize and aid in the healing and restoration of damaged dry hair. These ingredients help to add back some of the natural oils that have been lost along the way by those who have colored, permed, or otherwise damaged their hair.
This bar of shampoo is also great for cold winter climates where, through lack of humidity, everything dries out.
It has a sentimental earthy fragrance that is reminiscent of times gone by.
 Check out the site. They break down all the ingredients and give additional information on why it was added!

I first saw these shampoo bars online and it went right on my list of things to try. I've tried a couple of shampoo bars and have found some I really like. At first I expected them all to be very drying, but that's not necessarily so. 

They have a couple different options to choose from, I went with the moisturizing because my hair tends to be dry. It's unscented as most of their bars seem to be. Usually I prefer my shampoo scented, but it's not a deal breaker if it's not. It did kind of have a really fresh floral scent when I first opened it which smelled amazing, but it's not on the shampoo bar whatsoever. I'm thinking maybe it picked up the scent off other things on the shelf? Who knows.

Anyway, the first time I used it, I loved it! For some reason I was thinking it was going to be really drying, but when I rinsed my hair felt moisturized! And it felt really clean without feeling stripped! I actually skipped conditioner the first few times I used it and still didn't feel my hair was dry.

It's easy to lather up, I just rub it on my hair in a few different places and get to scrubbing. A little different than a liquid shampoo but honestly just as easy.

Rinses clean and easily. And voila, clean hair!

I got my bar for a little more than $5 in my local natural and organic grocery store, really can't beat it! I see it on their website for $7.50, but I recommend doing a google search and shopping around for the best price. You get 3.5 ounces, which should last quite awhile. It says on the packing about 24 shampoos (sometimes more!) and I would agree with that so far. Just make sure to let it dry properly and store it away from water.

The ingredients are all natural and full of things I WANT to use on my hair. Nothing questionable.

Saponified Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Rice Bran Oil, (responsibly sourced) Palm Kernel Oil; Mango Butter, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Vit. E, Aloe Vera, Almond Oil

Overall, I love this product! I would purchase it again, and I would recommend it to anyone with dry hair. I will definitely be trying more of these!
