Whoever wrote that it only takes a pass or two and you've got plenty of lather is correct. This soap is great! My hair feels clean but not in the stripped kind of way most commercial shampoos leave it. No itchy scalp afterwards, either. I know natural, old-fashioned soaps will turn to mush if left in a bowl or saucer and not allowed to drain and dry, but all I do is leave the bar on my open wire soap rack in the shower with the glass shower door open for a few hours, and the bar dries out fine. I haven't had any problems with it turning mushy whatsoever. Nice cinnamon spice smell as well. I plan to try the other "flavors" soon. Good stuff and American made!
