Shampoo Bar from Tropical Traditions: Review and Giveaway (Ends 7/12) CLOSED

Monday, June 28, 2010 Posted by Dina N

I love the coconut oil soaps from Tropical Traditions. The shampoo bar has been on my list of things to try for ages! Now finally my hair can enjoy the same pampering treatment that my skin has been getting with their liquid and bar soaps.

Just as the other Tropical Traditions natural soaps, the Shampoo Bar is made from saponified organic virgin coconut oil. The bar also contains natural patchouli. Nothing else! It is handmade in the Philippines. The shampoo bar makes a rich lather and my hair feels so soft and fragrant after I use it. My bathroom now smells lightly of patchouli - such a lovely scent.

I was intrigued by one of the customer testimonials on the Tropical Traditions site.  She said she'd been using the shampoo bar for about 4 months and her hair color did not fade at all. Now I have not used the shampoo bar that long but if it works the same way for me, it's worth its weight in gold - er, hair color and trips to the hair salon.

And I just have to mention that not having another plastic shampoo bottle in my shower makes my green self happy.

Deal Alert
Right now, the shampoo bar is on sale for $4.95! Its regular price is $6.95. If at any time you decide to buy this product or anything else from Tropical Traditions, as a first-time customer you can get a FREE Virgin Coconut Oil book with purchase. Find out all about coconut oil and its uses! Just use code 5251001 in the Referred by a Friend section and the book will be added to your order at no charge.
