Amphora Aromatics Shampoo Bars

June 03, 2017
Hey my lovelies, hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! I have had a pretty amazing weekend so far as its my birthday weekend. Today I have a post all about the Amphora Aromatics solid shampoo bars that i was kindly sent over. Now I personally only have the brilliantly balancing shampoo bar but I am going to add in descriptions about all of the range as i know not everyone will have normal to oily hair like me. There are all together there is eight different shampoo bars you can buy and all suit different hair types. 

So what is a solid shampoo bar you may be wondering, well its basically a solid version of a liquid shampoo. I have only ever used the lush solid shampoo bars and I fell in love with them so i definitely had high hopes for the Amphora Aromatics shampoo bar. I thought I would include the price of both Amphora Aromatics and lush's shampoo bars just as a comparison. Lush's shampoo bars are £6.25 and the Amphora Aromatics are £5.94. I found that the Amphora Aromatics shampoo bar lathered in the hand more than the lush ones I have tried so that was a bonus for me as it makes it much easier to lather on the hair. 

How do I use a solid shampoo bar? Well, there are two ways you can... Firstly my favorite was is to rub it in your wet hand and then apply it to wet hair as you would any another shampoo, this way is easier to get the product distributed through the hair and takes less time. The other way is to rub the shampoo bar onto wet hair, this takes much longer and it is easy to miss places. 

Why so I personally love shampoo bars over normal liquid shampoos? Well, you get much less wastage with a solid shampoo as I find that with liquid shampoos I always have product that actually doesn't make it into my hair. Also with a solid shampoo you get more hair washes with it. So essentially you are saving your money and who doesn't love saving money, that could over time be an extra lippie or go towards a holiday. 

I have included blurb about all the shampoo bars that Amphora Aromatics have on offer so I hope you can find a shampoo bar that works for you. 

Brilliantly Balancing shampoo bar

What the product claims: energising and uplifting, this refreshing cocktail of citrus fruits is a miracle-worker for hair health and growth.  Purifying and balancing, Lemon and Bergamot essential oils work to reduce scalp build up and excess oil – adding shine and condition as well as soothing itchy skin and stimulating hair growth.  Use regularly on greasy and oily hair.

What I thought: I used this shampoo for the first time the day after having dry shampoo and hairspray in my hair and I must say it did a fabulous job of taking all the product out. The shampoo bar smelt lemony but it wasn't at all over powering. I did applied the shampoo and then washed it off twice as i would any other shampoo and it left my hair feel so clean, probably cleaner than it has been in ages (was well chuffed). After my second day of unwashed hair my hair wasn't greasy and well, I usually need to wash my hair on the second evening so this was a MASSIVE bonus to me!
