One Bath And Body: Solid Shampoo

I have a treat for you today! I had the opportunity to review solid shampoo and I jumped on it. I travel a lot and this seemed perfect because then I can take my flight carry-on allotment and fill it with nail polish :-)
Here's some info:
ONE Solid Shampoo Bar ($7.99): Formulated with soothing oatmeal and conditioning natural oils instead of harsh chemicals, the bar lets you lather up with just three or four rubs over wet hair, providing a fresh-scented deep clean. Available Scents: It’s Green (for bouncy lively hair), Goldilocks (name should be a clue!), Squeaky Clean (for oily hair), Hair Biscuit (for yummy hair).
ONE Solid Conditioner Hair Boost ($7.99): Made with nourishing Shea Butter and Macadamia Nut Oil, this earth-friendly solid envelops hair in nourishing natural moisture for a soft tangle-free finish

I loved this product so I handed off the second tin to my friend to try out. She sent this to me in response, I loved it so much and thought that it would be nice for my readers to see a guest blogger to shake things up. Here's what she had to say:

When MM gave handed me the round cardboard package for this One solid shampoo hair biscuit I was convinced she was handing me a candle. When I smelled through the little hole on top how sweet, and perfectly me, it smelled I was transported instantly to being a kid again. To me it was like smelling honey and flowers from my childhood, and I really wanted to light it up, curl up on the couch and drink some milky chamomile tea. I was actually a little disappointed it wasn't a candle, but shampoo.
Disappointment was short lived when I got to take that baby home with me to try, and smell in the car the entire way home, score! 
Although I care about the environment, I'll admit when it comes to my hair if the world goes up a couple extra degrees to keep it managable, well bust out those shorts. My hair is long, thick and would be really wavy if it wasn't so long. I have always used a thick moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, followed by a leave in conditioner to keep my locks looking shiny and frizz free. But, the cute packaging, the lessened environmental impact, (and did I mention the smell??), sold me on trying it out. 
Call me a convert. In a word, amazing. With a capital A. 
I followed the directions, wet hair, run bar over hair a couple times, lather and rinse. I didn't think it lathered up all that much, and not nearly as much as I'm used to, but when I rinsed my hair it felt really clean. Not stripped dry clean, but light and airy clean. I didn't follow up with a conditioner, which made me feel a really naked, but for the sake of reviewing I trooped on. My hair combed through shockingly easy. 
But, for the true test... the freshly washed, no leave in product, air dry. Soft, wavy, and zero frizz.  
Plus, the tin it comes in is great, footed with drainage holes. The solid nature would also be cool if I ever got to travel. Another great draw would be that though the bar doesn't leave a lingering smell on my hair, it does make my tiny bathroom smell like heaven.  
Score ONE for the environment, and one for my hair! 

Great review by my friend right?! Loved it so much, I had to share it. The shampoo bars have counter parts (conditioner bars) as well and can be purchased at Target, Walgreens or One Bath and Body.
