I use the Rosemary bar. I really like it. I get a very rich lather very easily and makes my hair and scalp feel great. The shampoo bar comes in a metal container which is excellent for traveling. I plan on purchasing more.

I have used the DR Harris shampoo creams which are good , but I prefer the shampoo bar.

The DRH Shampoo bars are awesome in my opinion. Lathers like an explosion with only three or four passes over the scalp so it lasts a long time as well. Leaves my hair feeling great and really clean also. I have the coconut and the Arlington bars and have been concentrating on the coconut first (though I have tried the Arlington). Both are very mildly scented and the scent of the coconut has now completely dissapeared. Probably my only complaint about this fine product.

Thank-you for your responses!

Phil has the Rosemary and the Arlington, so my choice is out of those two for the moment.

I love the Arlington scent, but I'm leaning towards the Rosemary. Knowing me I'll end up ordering both!

Phil, if you are reading do you plan on stocking the others? In particular, I'm interested in the Ocean...

Would love to hear your thoughts on it when you get one Ben. I haven't tried the Rosemary so am curious especially about the smell and it's strength.

I will be placing another order in about two weeks. Might as well pick up the other flavors. Biggrin

I use both the Ocean and Arlington versions. They last around 3 months for me so it is cheap!

Make sure you dry it overnight before putting it back in the tin and life is a pleasure. The Ocean leaves my hair feeling thicker and more hydrated than does the Arlington but I love the scent of Arlington and the difference isn't great.

Wonderfully compact travel solution that works so well I use it at home too.

I can't imagine anyone not being satisfied with the product.

Really glad to see you carrying these Phil! Makes my life much simpler Biggrin

About 2oz. maybe 3/4" thick and 2 1/4" around. But a little goes a long way.

I think I'll be picking one of these up for my trip. Nice and compact, plus one less liquid item in my baggage. Only question is, which scent!?

How does one use these? Just rub them in your hair a few times then scrub in?

Yes, you take it and rub it ontop of your wet scalp and use the lather generated and work it into your scalp.

Here are the ingredients for the D.R. Harris Arlington Shampoo Bar: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Aqua, Parfum, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, Citroneilol, Cital

While I do think it is a quality product I think the cost is just too much for a 50g (about 1.76 oz.) bar. Yes, the tin is nice but I don't shampoo with that. Next up will be a Mike's Naturals Shampoo Bar and if it's as good as his shaving soaps then I believe I have found my new shampoo.

The price may seem high at first but it lasts as long as a couple of bottles of my regular shampoo so it works out in the end for me.

I don't rub it on my hair though. I wet my hair then rub the bar in my wet hands for a few seconds and rub that into my scalp. PLENTY of lather Smile

Just be sure to let the puck dry before closing it up and it lasts and lasts.

I've been using the Arlington Shampoo Bar at the gym for the last few weeks, and finds that it lathers up really well. I have a hard time picking up the scent, though.
