(26 customer reviews)


Finally, a soap bar which has been formulated specifically for cleaning and nourishing your hair and scalp. Say hello to soft, light and healthy hair!

You will find that this lathers up really well in the hair – so feel free to use the extra foam to wash the rest of your body, it’s great for the skin as well. Your hair should be fairly easy to comb (just make sure that you towel it dry as best as you can first, as hair that is still dripping wet is always harder to comb through).

If you have any hair or scalp issues that you think may have been brought on by the use of commercial shampoos (e.g. dandruff, hair loss, very oily scalp), using this soap for just a week won’t offer any noticeable changes to your condition. I encourage you to stick to using this bar, or any other all-natural shampoo formulation, for at least a month of daily use, before drawing your conclusions about whether or not it is helpful for your scalp.

Personally I found that it helped my usually frizzy hair look a lot more presentable, and my curls are more defined and relaxed. I eventually noticed after a month of use that I have much less hair on the floor and in my comb too! On Andrea’s fine and straight hair, it seems to help her comb it more easily. It has a very mild, pleasant minty feeling on the scalp.

Tip: If you find that your hair feels heavy or sticky after using this shampoo bar, try using a conditioner. You can very easily make an effective one by diluting 1 part apple cider vinegar in 10 parts water (you can replace the apple cider vinegar with lemon or lime juice, but these may irritate very sensitive skin). Work this solution through your hair, especially the ends, then rinse out thoroughly – your hair should feel light and even easier to comb through.

Characteristics and Usage

Use on: Predominantly for the hair, but it’s perfectly fine to be used on the body.

Scent: A mild scent, mostly of peppermint.

Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.

    to reduce plastic and to help my itchy oily hair, I decide to try a soap bar to solve the problems. The first few times to use this shampoo bar and conditioner, my hair feel dry but is ok to comb. When without conditioner, my hair is hard to comb and feel very dry. However, it just a good experience for me because it definitely reduce my hair-fall and itchy scalp. Anyway, love the scent of the shampoo bar and this bar also good for shower with this pleasant scent.

    I have been using the Mane Event for two weeks now and my hair loves this shampoo bar~ One significant improvement which I notice after a few wash is the number of hair falling out in the shower has greatly reduced. I used to have a clump, now only a few strands. Before switching to this, I had to apply conditioner every time after washing (I wash my hair daily as I live an active lifestyle) as without it, my hair would feel very dry and frizzy. However, with this shampoo bar, I only apply conditioner every two to three wash and it does not get dry nor frizzy, in contrast, it feels soft! I also use this for my body and sometimes my face when I am in a rush. Now that I have successfully switched to shampoo bar, I no longer need to pack different bottles when I travel….Hooray! Plus, it smells wonderful too!

    Hi, I’ve tried this and finding my self loving the minty sensation on my scalp! But yeah after 2 weeks using bar soap as shampoo my hair will start getting stiff which is actually a usual process for me, and applying conditioner will quicky fix it. Just wondering though, is this safe for kids 2-4 years old?

    • Michelle Ho (verified owner)

      Hi Dee, we’re so glad that you’re enjoying the experience of using the Mane Event with your hair so far! And yes, you can certainly use this for kids aged 2-4. πŸ™‚

    Really great for hair! Love it!

  5. Doen En (verified owner)

    I really wanted to like this, but I learned the hard way that CP soap and my hair just aren’t compatible, even with a vinegar rinse. Awful experience using it as shampoo – heavy, waxy hair for over a week πŸ™ I even joined a FB group to figure out what went wrong.

    On the up side, this makes a lovely body soap! It It fills the shower with a subtle herby, almost medicinal (but in a good way) scent. Delightfully slippery and gel-like when wet, lathers easily, and not at all drying.

    • Michelle Ho (verified owner)

      Hi Doen En, thank you for your frank review of The Mane Event – I’m so sorry that it didn’t work out well for you, and thank you also for sticking it out for a whole week just to see if things would change. Have you tried shampooing your hair twice with the soap, and then only use the diluted apple cider vinegar rinse? That has helped with some of our customers who initially experienced the same unpleasant waxy residue as you did.

      In any case, thanks for giving our shampoo bar a try – I’m glad that it still felt great on your skin, at the very least. :”)

    My hair type: colored/dry hair but I have an oily scalp (nearing the end of the day).
    I didn’t like the first one week of using this shampoo bar because it made my hair feel super waxy. My hair was not oily but it clumped together really easily so on my 3rd day of use (and the next 4 days after), I washed my hair after with the ACV rinse and although it got rid of the waxy feel on my hair, my hair became oilier faster throughout the day so I was quite unhappy. But I’m now about 3 and a half weeks in and I quite like the shampoo bar very much now because I think my scalp and my hair finally got used to it. The minty scent is lovely and I do like the smell. I use the ACV rinse every 2 days and it’s working well (not great because my hair smells a bit but I don’t mind it). I bought 2 bars at one go and I will definitely continue using it as well as buying it again because it’s package free and that makes me happy!
    Verdict: After using this shampoo bar 3 weeks in, I like that my hair feels clean throughout the day. I love that I can style my hair (I curl my hair on some days) like normal and it feels light. Switching directly from drugstore shampoo to this shampoo bar was a good choice – my hair doesn’t feel like it’s squeaky clean and stripped of oils anymore, it’s just clean and I’m very happy!

    I have been using this bar soap as a shampoo for a month now. It’s scent is very calming and it lathers up well. I have curly hair and it’s very hard to find a shampoo that works well with curly hair because it usually weighs down the curls. This mane event soap bar works for curly hair! I simply wash and let it air dry and the curls are back. The only set back is that it causes my hair to become dryer. So I use a hair styling product for curly hair to tame the curls and put the moisture back in.

    I’ve been using the shampoo bar for almost a year, it minized my dandraft problem (almost 95% reduced), white hair and hair fall. The only disadvantage is cause my hair dryer and every morning i need to spend time to “unknot” my knotted hair ( i’ve long straight hair, until waist). This problem can be solved by applying leave on hair conditional or apply conditional after rainse off. I did try vinegar based on the recommended portion posted in review. After applied, my whole bathroom (small bathroom) smell vinegar and my hair also smell vinegar long hours. This smell totally spoil my mood and felt wasted by using this shampoo bar ?. Nevertheless, i continue to use this shampoo bar without applying any conditional because i love the luxury smell very much. I hope kindersoap can come out product like hair conditional make this shampoo bar to be perfect shampoo bar!

    This is the second shampoo bar I have ever bought and after using this for 2 weeks I have to say that I am blown away. The first bar I had (another brand) was really good and I was lucky to find something that works for me on the first go. But this shampoo bar The Main Event takes happiness to another level. It lathers up really quickly and easily without too much lathering. It leaves my hair silky afterwards. And of course, it just smells heavenly. Note, I have thin short hair that is a little frizzy.

  10. JasJ (verified owner)

    I decided to try Mane Event for my itchy scalp, and after using for almost 2 weeks, I noticed my scalp does feel less itchy. Overall, I like how clean and refreshing my scalp feel after every wash. So, I’ll stick to the product for the time being πŸ™‚

  11. yuhuifang86 (verified owner)

    I did notice my scalp itchiness has reduced alot and it makes my hair smell so natural and healthy?

  12. Elle (verified owner)

    Felt so good after i got used to it! Love the smell too!

  13. Agnes L

    I’d been using new Zealand brand shampoo bars but they are difficult to get (need people to bring back for me) and quite expensive so I thought we’ll give this a try.
    This does not lather well and leave a layer of grease like feel on the hair after a wash.
    We bought 2 bars and mid way to the first bar, we switched back to our original brand for shampoo and use these as body soap instead. They are good as body soap, just not sure what is in this formula which causes the hair to be greasy.

      Hi Agnes, thank you for your honest feedback about your experience with The Mane Event, and I am terribly sorry I didn’t realise I had some new reviews to approve until just now! Unfortunately you may be one of the few who run into an “adjustment period” of sorts, when the hair and scalp need a bit of time to get accustomed to a new formulation of cleanser. It is not uncommon, but still an unpleasant experience.

      There are several possible reasons for this, and this article on another soapmaker’s blog does a pretty good job of explaining the ones that I am familiar with. Do check it out and perhaps give some of their tips a try to see if that helps.

      Personally I would recommend the following tips to try while going through the transition period, which may last weeks or even a couple of months, depending on your hair’s condition:

        Try shampooing and rinsing twice. Be sure that you work the shampoo lather right down into the scalp as well, and take your time to rinse it off thoroughly.
        If your hair is tangled after showering, try using a diluted apple cider vinegar rinse (1:20) as a conditioner.

      Hang in there, and see if this helps. Otherwise please contact us and we can arrange for a refund as soon as possible – you can keep the soap, and perhaps pass on to someone else who may find it suitable for them, if you like. πŸ™‚

    I’m trying to reduce plastic use and although it is not possible to eliminate it completely at this point in time, one of the ways I have control is to reduce the use of liquid soaps and shampoos. Soaps are easy enough as soap bars options are plentiful, but good shampoo bars, that has been a challenge. Until now. Of the many shampoo bars I’ve tried, The Mane Event is by far the most effective and also value for money. The bar lathers well and surprisingly not drying. Thank you for creating this product. It gonna be in my Christmas shopping list for my family, friends and colleagues, so be prepared for a big order soon!

    Great product, will purchase again

  16. chuilynn (verified owner)

    I love this shampoo bar! I use it with a lemon rinse at the end because it did make my hair feel a little sticky and heavy on its own. The combination of this shampoo bar with the lemon rinse leaves my hair soft and shiny! For someone who’s struggled with frizzy, flyaway hair most of my life, this is truly amazing!

    P/s: even my 8yo has asked to use it because she loves the smell of hair πŸ™‚

  17. deniseoyn (verified owner)

    I’ve been using the Mane Event for my hair for the past year. It lathers up really well and smells great too. It has helped reduce my dandruff problem and my scalp is not as itchy as before. It takes at least a few weeks for the benefits to be seen, but in the long run it works really well for my hair and scalp.

  18. Kathlin Ambrose (verified owner)

    I have been using The Mane Event exclusively for about 3 months now. Unfortunately it has not improved my dandruff and flaky scalp but that could also be due to the fact that I do not shampoo my hair every day. Having said that, the combination of this soap and diluted ACV has made my hair very soft, shiny and beautiful, and I have received quite a few compliments on my hair over these three months. I almost never use any hair care products anymore. These results are amazing for me who has endured a lifetime of frizzy hair. I am now convinced to never use commercial shampoo and hair care products anymore anymore. My only challenge is that I do find my hair a little too heavy and sticky for my liking, but I am convinced enough by the product to keep experimenting with amount and frequency until I get the right results.

    I had dandruff and itchy scalp problems in the past couple of years, so after trial and error I ended up using Johnson’s baby hair shampoo(yellow) and all was well. Starting to get interested in living zero waste, I tried a soap bar from Claires’, but to my dismay it wouldnt lather up enough, even with a lathering pouch! SO, I had to use it as body soap.
    6 months pass and a terrible itch returned even as I used Johnsons’ very mild shampoo made for babies which was very frustrating.
    SO I tried the Mane event! Rubbing it into my scalp in 5 circles, and I was surprised that it foamed up so much my hair was just drowned (in a good way!) with bubbles! Its refreshing, and its my third day in, my dandruff has reduced significantly, and my scalp no longer itches!
    Thank you Kindersoaps!!

    • Michelle Ho (verified owner)

      Hi Imelda, I am thrilled that you found a shampoo bar that works well for you! It means a lot to us that your scalp’s condition seems to have improved a lot. Thanks for taking a chance on us, and we hope to be of service to you and your loved ones in the long run. πŸ™‚

    Definitely a must have!have quit using commercial shampoo since trying Mane Event. Refreshing smell, hair has been more manageable and scalp no longer felt tense. Kindersoaps have inspired me to go all natural in beauty products. What’s more, I appreciate Kindersoap’s effort in making their soaps environmentally friendly, items sent to me was without unnecessary packaging or plastic covers which I delightfully appreciate!

  21. Anis (verified owner)

    Love the minty feeling after shampooing πŸ™‚ Very refreshing and helps a lot with oily and itchy scalp too. Highly recommended for active women with scarf! πŸ™‚

  22. maxineyong7 (verified owner)

    I definitely need to stock up on this soap. My mom and I have been using this soap since a week ago, things improved tremendously for us. Mom’s oily hair and dandruff problem been fixed, her itch on the scalp has been relieved a bit, my dry and fuzzy hair is more manageable. We both use apple cider vinegar as conditioner after washing it. The strange smell of ACV faded after we blow dry our hair. Highly recommended!!

  23. sanali.h (verified owner)

    I had developed itchy scalp over a month and my shampoo options were not working out. But on the first use of mane event my scalp felt cleaner, even after sweating out a day later. Love how it foams and that you don’t need a lot of the soap to get the clean effect. But pair it with a dilution of apple cider vinegar for conditioning to get the smooth and manageable feel, to add to the clean and healthy scalp.

  24. Tasha (verified owner)

    I’ve been using ‘The Mane Event’ for about a month plus now. On my second bar now. I had itchy scalp in the past and no commercialised shampoo that are able to help me until I tried this shampoo bar. On my first use, my itch stopped completely. After I use it for about 2 weeks, I notice my hair is pretty sticky, so then I use apple cider vinegar hair rinse to rinse it off after washing my hair. Now I have shiny, soft, and healthy hair and scalp!

  25. Bibiana (verified owner)

    I have been using the Mane Event for the past 3 weeks now. After washing my hair and rinse it out with cold water, I will usually proceed with apple cider vinegar hair rinse and rinse it out with cold water again. I noticed that my scalp is less itchy and my dandruff problem has also showed slight improvement. I also love the minty feeling on my scalp and how soft and shiny my hair is now. I will definitely be back to purchase the Mane Event! :)

    I have just started using the Mane Event after buying it as one of the soap sampler pack and I love how well it lathers up just as it touches water. After using it, I was expecting my hair to be rather dry but, it is surprisingly more manageable. Will be back to buy the whole bar so that my dandruff problems can finally disappear.
