I have fine/low porosity and not very dense hair. Used a CV bar once and my hair hated it. My hair rarely tangles and it did with this bar. If I hadn't used soap bars previously, I would have never used another. I narrowed it down to the shea, avocado or castor oil. Was really careful with my future ingredients. I was able to determine that it was the castor oil. I've had issues with castor oil in products, too.

I've continued to use the bars for 4+ years with no problem. I feel that the bars help tighten curls and add volume. Natural soap/shampoo bars aren't for everyone. If you have really hard water, you can have problems.

Don't know if this helps.
