Jojoba & Peppermint Formula Shampoo
Jojoba & Peppermint Formula Shampoo Bar – 3.5oz
Jojoba & Peppermint is ideal for dry scalp as it help remove the scaling and repair the skin. Jojoba rapidly penetrates down to the scalp and hair shaft, and readily loosens and dissolves this hardened build-up. Jojoba Oil leaves the scalp and hair follicles clean and free to continue their normal function, while the Peppermint oil stimulates and promotes a healthy scalp.See more.
Jojoba Oil is an amazing primary ingredient that we use in our Jojoba & Peppermint Shampoo. Many scalp related problems are caused by a hardened build-up of sebum that clogs the hair follicles and may cause some types of scaling. If this hardened build-up is not removed, it can eventually obstruct the hair follicle's ability to function properly, which can lead to a loss of the hair shaft, and ultimately, death of the follicle. Jojoba rapidly penetrates down to the scalp and hair shaft, and readily loosens and dissolves this hardened build-up. Jojoba Oil leaves the scalp and hair follicles clean and free to continue their normal function.
Jojoba Oil helps promote healing of the skin in many ways. Native Americans have long used jojoba oil to help heal sores and wounds. It actually discourages the growth of some bacterial and fungal microbes that attack the skin. In addition, the chemical composition of jojoba closely resembles that of the skin’s natural sebum, so it is easily absorbed and rarely causes allergic reactions, even in the most sensitive individuals.
Jojoba oil is actually composed of liquid wax esters rather than oil. The body’s natural sebum also contains wax esters, which act as a sort of natural moisturizer and environmental barrier for the skin. However, wax ester production steadily decreases with age, causing the skin to appear dull and emphasizing wrinkles; a reduced ester content in the skin can also lead to the development of conditions such as psoriasis, dandruff, and rosacea.
Jojoba oil can prevent the skin from becoming too oily. Because the structure of jojoba oil so closely resembles natural sebum, it can actually trick the skin into producing less natural sebum, which, unlike jojoba, can clog pores. Jojoba oil may help treat acne, both by reducing sebum production and by protecting the skin from harmful bacteria. Peppermint Oil is added to stimulate and invigorate the scalp. It is also used to relieve skin irritation, dermatitis, acne and itchiness and also helps to reduce skin redness, where inflammation is present, while at the same time having a cooling action.
MADE IN THE U.S.A. WITH ALL NATURAL, SAFE, INGREDIENTS
Saponified Olive Oil
The remarkable benefits of olive oil have been known for thousands of years. It is a natural conditioner that makes hair shiny and soft, and is loaded with antioxidants to keep your scalp healthy. Olive oil fights hair loss by helping control dandruff, fungi, and bacteria. It prevents hair follicle shafts from narrowing by preventing DHT hormone production, letting you hold onto your hair longer. It can also improve blood circulation to the scalp and stimulate hair follicles, giving you thicker, healthier strands.
Coconut Oil / Virgin Coconut Oil
The main component behind our luxurious lather, coconut oil works wonders on the hair and scalp. The fats present in coconut oil retain the moisture content of the skin, and help eliminate further losses. The antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties found within protect from microbial infections than can enter through the pores. Coconut oil also contains Vitamin E, and is fantastic with skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
Native to Africa and India, this oil is well known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It accelerates blood flow to the scalp, thus increasing hair growth. It is very nourishing on the scalp and helps strengthen the roots with essential nutrients.
My first time trying a shampoo bar…I searched on the internet the best ones to try and JR Liggetts made the top of every search list. You can feel how clean your hair is after one use…and I was surprised at the massive amount of lather produced. These bars are small in my opinion and I was disappointed to start, then I used it. You barely use any at all…but the bar glides on clean and fast and lathers up really well. I’m hooked!
I have long, thick, coarse, wavy hair which can get frizzy really quickly, as well as an oily scalp. I have tried many shampoos from customized ones to ones specifically made for my hair type and nothing worked. My main problem was that the shampoo wouldn’t clean my hair and that I would have to sacrifice a clean scalp for frizz free hair. I found JR Liggett’s at our local feed/tack store and I thought I’d give it a go. I started off with the Moisturizing formula and conditioner and I did nothing to my hair for about a month except wash it. I noticed that my hair was visibly less frizzy every wash, and my scalp was clean. I also had no side effects like some people mention. Later, I decided to use the Coconut & Argan oil formula in the hopes of achieving less frizz. After washing my scalp was a smidge oily but I still continued use until I decided to find a new bar. I found the Jojoba and Peppermint formula and it is by far the best. My scalp is clean, my hair has natural anti-frizz properties and I genuinely think it helps with hair growth. By far the best shampoo I’ve ever tried.
I have thick, wavy/curly hair that’s oily on my scalp and dry on the ends. I also have the most insanely sensitive skin and get both ingrown hairs on my head from the coarseness of my hair and breakouts from any conditioner or extra oil. This is the ONLY shampoo that doesn’t break my scalp out (that includes all of the other bars from JR Liggett and any other shampoo on the market). So if you have any of the same issues, this is the bar for you! This is a great bar that cleans well, smells good, and keeps the frizz down!
Great to hear! We love customer feedback and hearing what works and what doesn’t. Thank you for sharing.
I love this formula! It is light, refreshing, and amazing for my hair. I especially enjoy the peppermint tingle on my scalp during the summer when temps are triple digits – it’s like a cooling treat for my head. Smells amazing and leaves my hair feeling clean and looking healthy.
So I have actually used JR Liggett’s bars for quite some time but initially it was really hard to find “the one” and I was pretty frustrated. I used the Coconut and Argan oil one first. BUT, it really just made my hair oily and gave me scalp buildup. (my hair is thick, mid-back length, and curly/wavy) I know this wasn’t just due to getting used to it because I had it for a long time. After that, I used the Tea tree and hemp bar. This one was slightly better but it made my hair EXTREMELY frizzy. Which was REALLY annoying because I have oilier hair and it just felt like a mess.
About a week ago I was going to order another bar and purely by mistake I ordered the Jojoba and peppermint bar. I DON’T REGRET IT ONE BIT! For me it was the perfect balance between hydration and cleaning. I have yet to use the Original, Hydrating, and Herbal bars but this has been the best for me so far. I don’t even feel the need to use conditioner which is great because less waste is what drew me into using the shampoo bar in the first place.
So if you are struggling with finding the best shampoo bar, I definitely recommend sampling!
I WANT TO GIVE THIS PRODUCT 5 STARS!! I have only been using the bar for the past few days and it’s been overall good. I dance and that causes me to wash my hair every night but from the past few times I used it it’s been good i have thicker wavy hair and when washing my hair I noticed that once you make a good lather and put it on your hair it go away and then my hair almost feels squeaky. It still gets the job done but I want to know if this is something normal. I do very much enjoy this product and will be purchasing it again
Thank you Kennedy, glad to hear!
I bought this bar because it’s natural and plastic-free. The peppermint and jojaba has done wonders for my scalp, which was always somewhat itchy. Never occurred to me that I might have a dry scalp. I haven’t had any issues since switching to this. I also have curly hair, and this makes my hair feel moisturized and clean without getting that overly squeaky feeling. I love it.
For Earth Day during the Pandemic I decided to forsake all plastic shampoo bottles and start bar shampoo. JR Liggetts had good reviews and a great price so I chose it. Great lather, luxurious, soft, full hair and no adjustment time like in some reviews!!! Shoulda gone Bar years ago!!! Bye Bye plastic shampoo bottles!!!
Seriously the Best.
For the longest time I was searching for a more natural haircare routine that wouldn’t strip my hair of it’s natural oils and was just better for me in general. I first purchased a lush shampoo bar which contained SLS and I absolutely hated the way it stripped my hair. I then tried the Baking Soda/Vinegar no-poo method and after 2ish weeks realized how damaging it was for your hair. Then I switched to Morocco Method which simply did not work for me. I found it incredibly difficult to work through my hair since it didn’t lather. After purchasing a couple sample sizes of JR Liggetts shampoo bars I immediately fell in love with this one. It left my hair shiny, smooth, easy to brush through, but most of all, clean feeling. I can’t see myself ever using anything other than JR Liggetts from now on!
Thanks for the comment Gracie Our bars do not contain any amount of SLS, palm oil, or any animal fats/products. Our natural formula is eco friendly and people friendly.
New Favorite Shampoo
This shampoo transformed my hair. I have thin-medium thickness long hair, and it tends to get oily, but my scalp gets dry. I was skeptical to try this since it’s composed entirely of oil, but I’m glad I went for it. It hydrates my scalp without making it greasy, and it’s given my hair body it never had before. It doesn’t suds up or feel great in the shower, but trust that it works. No need for conditioner either!
I have been using only this product for three weeks now–no other shampoo, no conditioner, no mousse–and I feel as if this is the shampoo (and conditioner) I have been missing my entire life without realizing it. I work up a lather, wash it out, dry, and it looks lighter and fluffier than when I use mousse, and has fewer or no tangles than than I get with most of my conditioners. ( I should say that I have thin fine hair that gets oily every second or third day depending on diet.) For some reason, hair dries quickly after using this, which is an added advantage, from my point of view. I am utterly thrilled to have discovered this.
Never Going Back
When switching to a zero waste lifestyle, giving up my shampoo was the change I was most dreading. I thought shampoo bars were something I would have to suffer through while dreaming longingly of my old shampoo. Surprise to me, I LOVE my new shampoo bar more than my old shampoo! I instantly felt so much cleaner than I ever had, and my hair still feels as nice as it always does! I’m telling everyone who will listen to me all about it!
I absolutely love, love, LOVE this shampoo bar! I actually used it for shampooing *and* for body wash, and it’s so terrifically moisturizing without leaving any residue or drying out my skin or hair. My fiancee loves it, too! Highly recommend. 🙂
I love this shampoo , I have thick long hair that gets oily easy and was always hard to brush after a bath,,, after the 3rd use of this bar I can brush my hair with ease when I get out of the shower it cleans deep down and leaves my hair clean for a long time , both my 6 and 3 yr old has always had flaky skin behind there ears and my sons scalp always looked dirty and had yellow residue on his scalp after using this soap just a few times both my kids scalps are completely clean and behind their ears cleared up and are nice and smooth now,,, this shampoo has worked amazingly, and since there is no need for conditioner it makes bath time faster and easier!!
I am obsessed with these bars! I have super thick, waxy, long hair that needs TLC. Regular shampoos and conditioners make my hair shed significantly every time I would wash it but not with these. Leaves my hair clean, shiny and bouncy. I will never stop buying these. The only downside to these is the waxy buildup that it can leave on your scalp after a significant amount of time. I recommend just using an all natural sulfate free liquid shampoo one to two times a month to “clarify” the hair to gently remove build up.
Damn good bar hair shampoo.
Love this soap great clean good lather and last so long use it and have the most softest hair and refreshing gotta buy this you’ll never go wrong .
Please never stop making this product!
I found this by chance after going ‘no poo’ for a few months, and I will absolutely not go back to commercial shampoo ever again! This shampoo bar gives my hair shine, volume and a fresh scent, without any terrifying ingredients! I found that using a shampoo bar as opposed to a liquid shampoo actually is much more convenient! I love that it lathers, and lasts for ages ( I’ve had mine for around 3 months, 2 washes every week and still not finished )
I alternate between this shampoo bar and the original. They’re both fantastic for my thin, slightly oily hair. The peppermint feels extra-good on my scalp.
