I have tried several different bar shampoos. The problems I had with the others was either buying it at a chain store like target when I'd rather buy local or ordering a few online from small shops that didn't feel good on my hair or didn't rinse well. IF you are wondering about a bar shampoo, try this one. I can't say enough good things about it! It feels great, lathers great, rinses great (I follow with one of farm&field's conditioner bars) and this one lasts several months! It smells nice and there is no plastic bottle!
