What's your hair care attachment style?!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my hair. But when I know wash day is coming up, I mentally prepare myself.

Bar shampoo and bar conditioner is on the rise. We’re not going to pretend we’re the only ones doing this, but if you’ve tried to hop on the trend in the past there are some things you might understand as much as we do about why not all bar shampoo and conditioner is the same.
