Unwrapped Life offers sustainable, Eco-friendly, and low-waste products, for self and surroundings.

I am usually picky when it comes to shampoo and conditioner I use on my hair, as I have sensitive skin especially on my scalp, as well as weird hair. The reason I say I have weird hair is that after my cancer treatment back in 2008, my hair went from thick, straight hair to a combination of hair.  I lost the back lower half of my hair due to radiation and chemo treatments, and when it finally grew back it came back as baby fine and super soft hair.  The hair that didn't fall out, though, started to get dry easily, and would frizz.  I also found that over time due to hypothyroidism that came due to treatments, that my thick hair started to get thinner and finer.  And, with age came white hair, that seems to grow in like wire.  So, to say that my hair is a mix of sorts is an understatement.  As a result, I have been trying to find just the right shampoo and conditioner to use that will not dry out my hair which is dry in spots, leading to an itchy scalp, while also not weighing down my thin hair like some poorly made hair care products do.  I have spent the past eight years (yes, it has been that long with no real success) trying to find hair care products that will work with my hair...but, I am happy to say that my search is finally over, thanks to Unwrapped Life and their HYDRATOR SHAMPOO + CONDITIONER bars, which are made with colloidal oatmeal + amla oil | juniper + palmarosa.  

I was recently sent a samples of the hydrator shampoo and conditioner bars, and couldn't believe how well they worked on my combination hair. First off, the smell of these shampoo and conditioner bars are amazing!  I had to pick up the samples at the post office and you could smell the collodial oatmela and amla oil juniper from the outside of the box.  The post worker asked what was inside as it smelled amazing, and I had no idea what it was, so I opened it in front of her.  When we both realized it was shampoo and conditioner, why couldn't believe how great it smelled.  She wished she had a bar of each to try out, as the smell alone had her wishing to try it on her hair.  I told her I would try it out and let her know, and couldn't wait to return later in the week to get stamps for holiday cards, to tell her of my experience.

"Sometimes you need a little hydration, sometimes you need a lot! With colloidal oatmeal and amla oil, the Hydrator works to treat scalp ailments, including dryness, eczema, psoriasis, and rashes; and we all know that a healthy scalp makes for healthy hair. Chock full of vitamin B and the natural polysaccharide beta glucan, which acts as an emollient, the colloidal oatmeal delivers shine, moisture and damage repair, making your hair less brittle and more elastic with each use. Coupled with amla oil, which is used in Ayurvedic medicine to stimulate the hair follicle and encourage growth, these nourishing ingredients provide a perfect environment for long and healthy hair. This is a plus for curly and kinky hair types, which tend to be more prone to mechanical and manipulation damage"

Next to the amazing smell of these shampoo and conditioner bars, I couldn't get over the lather you get with these hair care products.  The followed the directions they suggest, and only washed my hair once. I wanted to see how it would leave my hair with one shampoo and conditioner, before trying it with two shampoo rinses.

How to Use:

"For shampoo, you can either apply shampoo directly to wet hair, or create a lather in your hands, then apply. Starting at the scalp, massage through hair until desired lather is reached then rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary.

For conditioner, start at the scalp, and move the bar through hair to the ends. You will feel the ‘slip’ of the conditioner in your hair when you rinse thoroughly. Conditioner can be reapplied to ends and left in as a detangler, prior to combing hair.

Dry and style hair as usual. Keep product out of eyes, ears, nose, and mouth.

Our bars last longest, and perform best, when allowed to dry between lathers. We recommend storing them on a soap dish with drain holes and keeping them away from spraying water while not in use."


I usually have tangled hair at the tips of my hair from the split ends and frizz, so I reapplied the conditioner to the ends of my hair, and when I went to brush my hair, the brush glides smoothly through my hair.  I couldn't get over how easy it was to brush my hair, how there was no flaking from a dry scalp, and when my hair was dry, it was left smelling amazing and with a nice shine.  It didn't feel weighted down or greasy, and was easy to style.

It's been about a week using my hydrator shampoo and conditioner from Unwrapped Life, and I to say I am in love is an understatement.  I have been raving about it to friends and family, and having friends feel my hair, and how healthy and soft it feels.  Usually I wouldn't be showing off my hair as it is dull and flat, but with the few times of using these new shampoo and conditioner bars, I just want everyone to see and smell my hair, so that they don't have to spend 8 years like I did, trying to find the perfect shampoo and conditioner for their hair.  In addition to the hydrator, Unwrapped Life also offers other shampoo and conditioner bars for different hair types, as well as a womb collection for babies and a wildling collection for kids.  

They also offer Vegan soap bars, which I will definitely be picking up to try out in the shower.

These shampoo and conditioner bars would make for a great stocking stuffer for each member of the family, as we all need shampoo and conditioner! :-)  And, once you wash your hair with these shampoo and conditioner bars from Unwrapped Life, you will see why I am love and love waking each morning to shower, so that I can wash my hair with my new hydrator shampoo and conditioner bars.
