(The Macaroon Shampoo Bar)
Another intriguing product from Basin is their Shampoo Bars, solid soap bars meant to replace liquid shampoo.
From the product description:
Shampoo bars are a nice alternative to liquid shampoo. They only contain the ingredients that they need—not the extra preservatives that liquid shampoos require for their shelf life. With bars, you help the environment by eliminating excessive packaging. Each shampoo bar is specially formulated for specific types of hair. Shampoo bars are great for traveling, going to the gym and for every day use! They last approximately 30 to 50 shampoos. They should be kept dry between shampoos to get the maximum usage.
Directions: Rub directly onto hair or rub between hands and apply lather to hair.

I smelled all these flavors at the Basin store at Downtown Disney in Anaheim. The one that I loved was Macaroon. Like my favorite cookie, I could eat it all night. I can't imagine how distracting it would be to have my hair smell this way all the time--I would be forever hungry! It was heaven.
I didn't try the Shampoo Bars though, as I'm experimenting right now with Dr. Bronners soap as my shampoo and finishing with a vinegar rinse. That's a separate post....So once again, I'm turning it over to the group. Has anyone tried these products, or anything similar? Anyone willing to volunteer for an experiment? Leave me a comment, and we'll form a test group!
