The Block Dock Vertical Soap Dish -  Set of 5 Purple Shampoo Bar Samples Sample Set

Set of 5 Purple Shampoo Bar Samples

Regular price $28

Purple bars for Blondes, Greys and Silver Foxes are a great addition to the bar landscape. It can be spendy to try them all one by one to find what works best for you.

Enter my blind 'taste test' for your hair complete with the Block Dock Bar Rater. There's no easier way to try five different brands without breaking the bank (or having wasted, unusable bars that do nothing for your locks heading to landfill).

When you're spending up ton the perfect colour of your tresses, you'll sure as eggs want to maintain it. And if you're a lucky natural, let's make the most of it.

My aim is to make it affordable to find the bar that's right for your hair, scalp and skin type. It's a trial and error situation, no getting around that but I can make it easier for you with this sample set. I also want to exit marketing from the equation, we all know how that can get in the way of choosing what really is right for you. 

If you or someone you know is on the hunt for the perfect purple bar shampoo solution (or you want to encourage someone off the bottle and on to bars), then might I suggest...this is your purple brick road to success! 

Bars are cut to small pieces (by eye) and in total weigh around 80gm.

This is easy!

After buying block docks and soap for handwash I decided to give shampoo bars a go, The question was where to start? I knew nothing about them.
Trying 5 samples is proving to be a wonderful introduction without wasting time and money trying to find the right fit for me. I never knew tiny samples of bar could last so long, needless to say I'm still trialling them but am really pleased with how its going. I'm now realising I didn't need all of that 'stuff' and I used so much!
I ordered the conditioner samples bars too, following the advice to only using the shampoo bar, I've not used any yet and I'm not even missing conditioner.
Like I said this is easy, why didn't I do it sooner?

Purple shampoo bar sample kit

I love the idea of using soap for my hair but wasn't keen to spend a lot on a bar that may or may not suit me so was delighted to find this. I am still making my way through the samples as they last for weeks. Defnitely recommend this for anyone not sure of which brand/s would suit them.

Fabulous product, brilliant service

one dock has rapidly become 5 because they work so well. Soap, shampoo and conditioner never dry out or get soft and gunky. Docks are quick to clean if they need it. Loved the sampler set of purple shampoo and conditioner, huge difference between them making the choice easy. So glad we did the sampler because one was exceptional, 3 were very good but 1 really pretty awful and 1 so so. If we had purchased just 1 and it had been the pretty awful one (which we started with) we would not have persisted, wrongly assuming all shampoo bars were 'pretty awful' Now I think we have the best shampoo I have ever used. Brilliant, fast, informative service. Thank you

Good test

Great if you want to test some solid shampoos before committing as there are significant differences between the samples despite all being 'purple shampoo' I haven't yet tested all 5, but there's enough in the wee samples to tell whether they suit you or not. Worth the purchase

Such a nice collection of shampoos to try, all thoughtfully wrapped like little sweets
