I love your name BTW. I hated shampoo bars to the first several years tring to master them and my hair is thick fine and very tangly. As I am nearing the 40 year mark my hair has thined some. I finally have a great shampoo bar that works for me and my family who all have mostly long hair. At first my shampoo bars were horrible lol, I guess you just gotta find that blend that works best for you tweaking all the way till it becomes more and more perfect.
