Are bar soaps better for my hair?
Bar soaps have ingredients in them that hold the bar together, and this may build up in your hair (bar soaps aren't good for your skin, either). I don't think bars are any more gentle than shampoos, despite their marketing. It all comes down to what is actually in the bar. And soaps are often made from a reaction of a highly alkaline substance (like lye) and a fat, so I would be very wary of using one.
