The Grand Poo Bar is a truly succulent hair cleansing option; non-detergent and sulfate-free, and enriched with moisturizing oils and butters like castor, shea, and cocoa. The poo bar is a gentle, low-lather cleanser that leaves hair clean without the stripped, dried-out feeling left by many detergent-based shampoos. Some of my testers even stated that they didn't need to use conditioner afterward! Simple to use & with a mildly herbal/citrus scent.
Ingredients: purified water, glycerin, sodium stearate and sodium oleate (mild foaming/cleansing agents derived from vegetable oils), sorbitol, stearic acid, lauric acid, african black soap, cocoa butter, shea butter, cetyl alcohol, coconut oil, lavender, rosemary & citrus oils.
detailed instructions on how to use a solid shampoo bar
1. – thoroughly saturate hair… to sopping, soaking wet. i find the wetter the hair, the easier for lather to distribute.
2. – section hair sloppily and rub the poo bar on your scalp. alternate lathering method: rub the bar into a lather in your hands and then apply the lather directly.
3. -put poo bar down and use hands to work into a lather. be gentle, keeping the hair lather concentrated on your scalp at this time.
4. – DO NOT do that ‘shampoo commercial’ thing and make one big pile of sudsy hair on top of your head. if your hair is highly textured, coily, or curly, this can be a recipe for intense tangling!
5. – instead, maintain your sloppy sections and slowly work the lather around the scalp and out/down to the ends of your hair. use your fingers – not your nails – to massage your scalp firmly.
rinse well. again using the pads of your fingers on your scalp.
6. – all done washing! this point is a great time to add conditioner and detangle.
*bonus* – storage tip: i usually cut my poo bars into sections. not tiny crumblish sections, but halves, thirds, or even quarters. you know how in the shower, a bar of soap will just disintegrate if it’s wet all the time? by cutting into sections and storing the unused portions somewhere other than your humid shower (like a drawer or your medicine cabinet) the rest of the bar stays dry and the whole bar lasts much longer.

grand poo bar
I really wanted to like this shampoo bar. It smelled wonderful but it seemed that I could not rinse the stuff out of my hair. My hair looked nice but had a sticky feel to it that I could not stand. I don't like the feel of any product in my hair so maybe that contributed to me not liking this product.
Recently, I have decided to start using more natural products on my hair, not ones advertised as being natural and they really aren't. I used the grand poo bar on my hair this past Sunday and it was amazing. My hair never felt so clean.
Perfect for low porosity hair
I've had this bar for a while. I got it when I had faux dreads so I could clean my scalp because buildup is a problem I have. Other than easily getting my scalp clean just because of the shape I didn't really notice any other benefits. I've had my hair out for a while and I've been switching between shampoos basically using whatever is closet but my hair is never more refreshed then after I use this shampoo bar. Every other shampoo my buildup is unbearable after a couple of days and leaving me looking like a flaky mess but this after weeks and no wash I'm still feeling great.
Very cleansing & moisturizing
I tried this bar last week & I absolutely LOVE IT. It has made my kinky, coily 4C hair nice & soft.
It smells delicious! Gentle cleansing, detangling and clarifying. The alternative lathering method worked best for my 4b/4c hair. Thank you Oyin Handmade!
This is very moisturizing. Love it!!!
New to me but worth a try
I've only used it once but it seemed to work fine. I'm trying to use less chemicals in my skin and hair care routines. Definitely cut the bar into pieces before using, that will make it last longer. It smells great and my hair felt clean. Looking forward to using more!
