Hair grows in cycles and it’s normal to shed about 100-150 strands per day. Growth is affected by many factors, including health, diet and a healthy scalp. The ingredients in Growth are packed with beneficial properties for blood flow in your scalp which promotes hair growth. So the short answer is it will help, the long answer is there are many other factors involved. If you’re experiencing excessive hair loss, our best advice is to consult a medical professional.

My favorite shampoo and conditioner!
Wow so, I've been debating on buying a shampoo bar. I finally agreed to give them a try and so happy to find Vida Bars. The shampoo is awesome and lathers super easy. Conditioner really gives a good slip, once you get used to how to apply it's an easy process. My hair is so soft and easy to comb through with the conditioner. After I wash it all out I can see how hydrated my hair is left. Also my curls clump better when styling. I really want to try the others but I know this one will last a while, so I guess I'll have to wait ha ha. Def worth the buy
Finally a shampoo that clean well, and conditioner that actually hydrate my dry curls! I notice since I have oily scalp that this bars keep my hair clean longer, I really love how my hair is softer and my waves more defined and shiny! I'm greatly surprised
I loved the performance of this product. The shampoo was very cleansing and the conditioner had an amazing slip. What I enjoy the most is how convenient it is to travel with these set in a cute little bag. Initially, my shampoo disintegrated over time within a couple of uses. However, this was just an odd piece which I realized after Ana replaced the shampoo bar with a new one. The shampoo bar held up just fine and is amazing to my hair. Very impressed and happy with Vida bars!!
Amazing for the whole family!
My friend got me the growth set to try out for my thin wavy hair. I love them so much! Turns out my husband loves them too and asked for his own set. My 2yr old son also loves the novelty of using the bars and it doesn't burn his eyes. Can't wait to buy more!
LOVE LOVE LOVE.
I was expecting a learning curve with my first go at a bar shampoo/conditioner but there wasn’t at all. The shampoo even has a bit of slip to give me a head start on detangling & the conditioner had plenty of slip. They smell AMAZING. I’ve been using my growth bars for 3 months now and I’ve barely made a dent in them, definitely got my money’s worth!
Never going back!
I’ve tried SO many shampoo and conditioner bars and none compare to Vida Bars! Finally shampoos that clean well, and conditioners that actually hydrate my dry curls! The Growth conditioner is my favorite so far, can’t wait to try more and see what other amazingness they create!
I have three sets of bars for different reasons (I.e. hydrate for deeper conditioning), but the growth conditioner is the perfect conditioner for everyday use. My curls are hydrated and frizz free. I’ve even used it on my three year old’s curls. It’s also amazing how long these bars last. To be honest I haven’t taken them out of my shower but this hasn’t caused any issues.
I highly highly highly recommend this set! I was looking for a clean shampoo for my curls and Vida bars are the real deal. The growth set smells amazing and lathers up even better than your regular bottled shampoo. I’ve had and used for a little over a month now and can hardly even notice a change in the size of the bars. My scalp feels so clean after using & I only have to wash my hair about twice a week now! If you’re questioning whether to buy or not, just do it. These bars are worth the money I promise. I will continue using Vida bars, I have no doubt about that. Can’t wait to try another set❤️
I have been following Ana for awhile now because her curls are always amazing. I'll admit I was really skeptical about how these would work but also extremely excited to try them out! I could not believe how easily the shampoo bar lathered, LIKE SHAMPOO FROM A BOTTLE! The conditioner bar was a little trickier but once I got the technique down it was super simple to use. Love them!!
Great for everyday and travelling <3 !
Not only do these Vida Bars make my hair feel great, they also last a long time! They are much easier to use in the shower that I thought (the shampoo lathers quickly and the conditioner coats me strands with superb slip). They are also great to travel with, no worries of spilling shampoo/conditioner in your bag/luggage or worrying about not packing enough conditioner if you are only taking travel sizes (haven't we all been there? lol). And of course, reducing plastic use is a bonus! I bought the Growth set for myself, & Hydrate and Clarity for two of my BFFs. Had to spread the Vida love!
All I can say is WOW!! My hair has never felt so healthy since I started using Vida Bars! I am absolutely in love with these!
These bars exceeded all my expectations. My hair feels amazing. I have been having trouble finding products without coconut oil and also don’t irritate my scalp. These bars were the ticket. I was pleasantly surprised at how “hard” the bars were (meaning I can tell they won’t get mushy if properly cared for and will last a long time- aka won’t disintegrate). The shampoo bar is easy to lather and you need such a small amount ! The conditioner bar, at first I was unsure I was getting much, but when I started squishing my hair, I realized it was working as it should. When my hair dried it felt softer and more moisturized than it had in months !! not to mention my waves turned into curls, were super defined and much tighter. Extremely happy with my purchase, Vida bars you have a new lifetime customer !!!!!!
These bars leave my hair clean and moisturized. My hair feels so soft after it dries! I would recommend them to anyone.
Growth Bars are awesome
I’ve been using the growth bars for a few weeks now. Surprisingly the bars look just the same as when I got them. I’m pretty sure they will last me a few months. I love the light weight cleansers and silky feel from the conditioner. My hair is thin and fine and I’m glad that this doesn’t weigh it down at all. I used to have itchy scalp but that hasn’t been a problem at all using these bars!
I feel a little silly writing this because I bought these bars before they were reformulated but I don't think they changed that much. I really love both of these bars. This is my first time using a shampoo or conditioner bar. I only had a shower or two learning curve before I got the hang of it. My the conditioner bar is amazing, really silky. The shampoo really cleanses my hair but doesn't leave it stripped. It does kinda feel squeaky but not badly. I've had bad build up before and had shampoos that strip my hair of moisture badly. The shampoo cleans my hair without taking out the moisture. Can't wait to buy more but I think that might be awhile because they don't run out quickly at all
I didn't know it was possible...
CGM/H approved? hydrating? zero waste? Latina owned? I didn't know it was possible, but here are the shampoo/conditioner bars I've been waiting years for, and I am not disappointed! I love getting volume and hydration, and these bars deliver. My hair feels moisturized and has a nice balance of protein without leaving my hair heavy or weighed down (as in, no product buildup). I didn't know I could have LIGHT, voluminous hair like this with my normally heavy curls. Also my scalp feels SO CLEAN. My hubby also has natural curls and has been using the Clarity bars for his thinner hair and he loves it too. I'm a little jealous of the peppermint in his, but the rosemary scent on Growth is divine as well.
Growth bars smell really good, last long and leave my hair and scalp clean and fresh
These bars are a great deal for the price. I hadn't realized that you get a shampoo bar and conditioner bar for $25. I paid $25+ for one bottle of shampoo or conditioner before this! I've only been using them for a few weeks, but they already make my curls feel so fresh and defined. Don't see myself going back to anything else! Now just waiting for them to come out with styling products!
These bars are easy to use, travel so well, and have made my hair so healthy! They smell delicious and have really returned the bounce in my curls.
I just got the growth bar. My hair is pretty healthy because I've been CGM for a couple of years. I have used these twice now and my curls came back witha vengeance! I thought they were already there but this made my curls defined and stay WITHOUT any product! Plus my hair felt clean. I picked growth bc its the only one without protein and my hair is not a fan of protein, not necessarily bc im trying to grow it out. Best decision ever!im never going back to bottles!
My hair is starting to love me again.
In September I finally bought my first set of vida bars. I did not start using them until after finishing my bottled products and they have lasted. I went with growth because the hydrate sold out, but my hair has shown soo much improvement. I feel my hair softer and healthier. My curls are getting defined like they were when I was little. I took advantage and bought the hydrate and balance sets during the sales and I'm super excited to try them. I still have half of the growth bars to use up, but I might mix it up and rotate them all.
These bars are AMAZING! I've tried other shampoo / conditioner bars before, with minimal success (I have pretty high density but *very* fine curly hair, and I would get SO frustrated ripping through my hair when I was trying to detangle with other conditioner bars that I'd give up and go back to a bottle mid-shower: cue existential crisis about climate change and outrageous beauty standards). But these bars work wonderfully! I love the suds, slip, and herbaceous scent, and they don't weigh my hair down or strip it at all. Definitely the conditioner bar takes a bit more work to get enough into my hair than bottled stuff, but I think the cool flat design of these bars comes in handy for that--with the higher surface area, more product gets into my hair in one go, and then detangling is a breeze after that. So glad that I found bars that work for my hair! I bought several sets with the recent sale, so I'm set for a while now! :)
I've been using the Hydrate bars and love them, but ordered the Growth bars during the buy one get one sale and I could not be happier with them. I hadn't washed my hair in over a week when these came in so it was the perfect test. I ended up shampooing twice and then conditioning to see if it would still feel as hydrated as the Hydrate bars. It did. My hair feels clean, smells amazing AND IS STILL moisturized. I feel like between these two bars, I won't have to ever buy a bottle again. I'm telling all my friends.
TAKE ALL MY MONEY!
This is my first time using a shampoo/conditioner bar and I could not be happier with the results of this product!!! My hair was dull, weighed down, and my scalp was dry and itchy. After 1 use I could tell a huge difference. I will never buy another shampoo/conditioner!
My Healthiest Hair Ever!
When I say this is the best my hair has ever been, I mean it! I have bleached highlights and tons of hard water damage, but with my Vida Bars Growth shampoo and conditioner, my hair is strong, shiny, and finally holding on to moisture! I’m even seeing baby hairs sprouting where I had sparse areas before and I’ve only had this set for a month! I love the Vida Bars and tell everyone about them. I’m a trained cosmetologist and this is hands down the best solid haircare on the market.
I am blown away!! I’m a first time user and to be honest, I was a little skeptical. The shampoo bar lathers incredibly and the conditioner bar, OMGEEEEEE!!!! I am in love!!!! Such a small amount go a such a long way!! I am fully converted!
I’d never used bar shampoo or conditioner before. I am in love with these!! They are phenomenal all around, easy to use, not stripping or drying. I can’t wait to try some of the others! I recently cut blunt bangs and hated it, but the growth bars are helping!
The Game Has Been Changed!
From the first use, I could feel the difference between Vida Bars and other shampoo and conditioner bars not meant for curly hair. My hair felt clean but also hydrated and not straw-like or stripped, and the conditioner is a dream (great slip, felt moisturized without weighing down or feeling gummy and still amazed at how little of it you need!) It was such a relief to find this product and see and feel the difference in my hair, even after one use! The game has been permanently changed and I am never going back to other bars!
Best bars out there
I saw this brand mentioned on a curly girl page, and signed up for when they came in stock. I jumped on the chance to try when I got the email. I bought the growth bar, and let me tell you I'm in love. My hair loves all the protein it can get so I was worried there wouldn't be enough protein, but there is. I've had bad experiences with other shampoo and conditioner bars, but vida bars far surpass everything I've used, even my shampoo and conditioner I've been recommending for the last year. I'm fully addicted to these bars, and highly recommend. They cleanse so well and make your hair soft, smooth, and frizz free while detangling effectively. I have tighter ringlets than ever before and I've been curly girl for a couple years. I can't say enough good things about these.
I purchased the growth bars and have used them a few times and absolutely love them. I spend a little longer in the shower on hair washing days, but it is definitely worth it. My hair feels great after washing with the growth bars, and the curls look great after drying too. I would definitely recommend these!!
Just the best!
I’ve been using the growth bars for a few months now and I absolutely love them. It always felt like other shampoos used to tangle my hair and there was never enough conditioner to detangle the mess. But now, both the growth shampoo and conditioner bars feel like they are detangling, moisturizing, and giving my hair new life. Very satisfied with these bars and looking forward to trying a different set in the future. (The far future, because they last soo long!)
I will never go back to bottled shampoo and conditioner! These bars work SO well and so much better than my bottled shampoo and conditioner (which will be going in recycling tonight!) my hair feels clean and fresh and not weighed down. Life long customer here!
First, I love having plastic-free shampoo and conditioner. I have been using these bars for months exclusively and I am so happy with the results! My bars keep getting smaller and I will definitely be reordering. I like to set my bars on the bag they came in and once they are dry, I tuck them back in the bag for my next wash day.
I absolutely LOVE the growth bars. I have 2a wavy hair that I sometimes wear natural and sometimes wear straight. This set leaves my hair so clean and so soft. Plus there’s no plastic bottles left over. No losses here on ANY level. Thanks Vida Bars <3
MY HOLY GRAIL!!!
What can I say other than these bars have completely changed my hair! I have 3a/3b fine curly hair. I get great definition, and can go longer between washes with great results! The shampoo leaves my hair feeling clean (I usually wash twice) and the conditioner is the perfect weight with the perfect slip (I leave it in for 5+ minutes before I wash it out! The scent is very subtle, which I love! 100% will but again!
I’m officially sold on bars over bottles! The Growth shampoo bar is absolutely fantastic — not too sudsy, and the perfect amount of cleanse. Love it!
These bars are absolutely amazing. My hair is 3a/3b and they work wonders on my curls! I tried them on my nasty post-beach hair and they rose to the challenge. The shampoo bar didn’t leave any squeaky feel and i love the conditioning experience, it gave great slip too! Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a different way to up their hair game.
these bars are *chef kiss*
I am ruined for all other solid shampoo and conditioners. I have fine wavy hair and exclusively low poo, and the shampoo bar cleanses my scalp without stripping my hair of moisture. The conditioner bar takes a minute to really melt and emulsify into your hair, but once it does, it has amazing slip, my hair is so soft and moisturized, and it rinses out completely. There’s no added fragrance, the scent is all natural, herbal, and earthy. The protein/moisture balance is perfect! I’ve only had three wash/style days so far, but my hair has looked its best in months! An added bonus is that it doesn’t cause my bacne to flare up! I can’t comment on the growth aspect yet, but this product easily exceeds all expectations, and are now my holy grail products!
I've used these bars once on my hair and once on my daughter's and I can already tell a difference. Our curls were hydrated and feel stronger. Looking forward to seeing the growth from them.
These bars are amazing!! The shampoo bar lathered just the right amount and the conditioner gave me excellent slip!! I would recommend these to my friends any day!!
So happy to have found Vida Bars!!
I have been searching for shampoo/conditioner that is zero waste, CHM approved, and is affordable. Vida bars hits all 3! It smells great and doesn't weigh down my fine curls (anywhere from 2b-3b)! I have used it once and honestly had the best wash day since starting CHM last July. I will definitely be buying these again!
I have had my Growth bars a few days now, and I love them! First, they smell amazing. As soon as I opened the box I knew they'd be something I would be sniffing at a lot, because they were so nice, but not overwhelming. When I used them the first time I hadn’t washed my hair in a few days (because...quarantine). The first shampoo on really dirty hair did not suds up a lot, but did a great job of cleaning. As I would have done with my old shampoo if my hair was this dirty, I did a second shampoo, and needed very little for it to suds and clean my hair. (I’ve washed only once on subsequent washings.) I conditioned my hair, and I love the way it feels. I have slightly curly silver and gray hair that has been getting drier the last few years. The difference in my hair after one use of these products was very noticeable. My hair feels soft and healthy and nourished. I’m very happy with my purchase.
Better than I expected.
I have curls anywhere from type 3a-c. My hair has several years of heat damage and tends to be hard to get definition. I used the conditioner and left a little bit in. The slip was AMAZING and when my hair dried it was so defined. I was totally not expecting that from a bar. The last 2 bar shampoos I used left my hair feeling stripped, but this bar did not at all. 100% recommend.
Perfect Amount of Protein
I wanted a shampoo and conditioner that would provide a little protein boost to my hair and I am so delighted to be able to buy from Ana. The bars smell a little lavender-y and really lather. I was suspicious (at first) of the conditioner bar, because it did not make my hair slippery and seaweedy - however, it was so easy to detangle and once dry, my hair feels soft and looks shiny. The first time I used this combo, I washed, conditioned and just used a little leave-in. I had terrific definition and tighter curls than I usually do without product. I'm sold!
I got these and am so glad to support Ana and her business! I asked for the Growth bars because I am trying to grow my hair. I still don't mentally understand how they lather, but I am all for their magic!! They both smell great, like rosemary :) The shampoo bar lathered so well and made my hair feel so clean. The conditioner bar has INCREDIBLE slip and made my hair SO SOFT for days on end. Both cleaned and nourished my hair so well that I didn't need to wash for 6 days. Thanks, Ana! Highly suggest
My husband and I both are loving the shampoo and conditioner bars. The shampoo does a great job cleaning and the conditioner leaves my hair soft. It smells "clean" without smelling artificial. Don't know yet about the growth part as I just started using it. I appreciate the no waste packaging and the amount of product you get is a great value. My daughter wants to buy some as soon as there is more product available.
These bars are the real deal! Love the no waste look and they’re so simple to use and really do their jobs! It takes some getting used to but they are so amazing and they smell so good! Love them and will continue to purchase them for sure!
Great product! I have fine, curly/wavy hair (2c/3a). The shampoo cleanses without making my hair feel completely dry/stripped like other products. Conditioner is moisturizing. I have been searching for an eco friendly curly hair shampoo/conditioner after using this I won't be going back to plastic bottles.
I absolutely love the shampoo and conditioner! They both smell soooo good! The shampoo left my hair feeling clean. The conditioner left my hair feeling soft and helped detangle my hair. Can't wait to see the growth results! Thank you Vida Bars for making my hair feel amazing!
Love love love
I have used it twice. I am in love with the shampoo. It’s so easy to distribute, easy than some of my liquid shampoos! The conditioner had slip when I put it on, but was so easy to detangle with after 5 minutes. So happy with the Growth bars.
Exactly what I needed!
This is exactly what I have been searching for since I started my curly girl journey in 2018. I tried the Growth bars and they smell wonderful and left my hair feeling clean, strong, and balanced. The shampoo created a lot of suds and the conditioner has much more slip than I anticipated from a bar! My roots had more curl after one wash. I cannot yet comment on the "growth" qualities, but I'm looking forward to wash days!
Love love love
While I just received these and only used it once so far so I can't comment on the "growth" aspect I can tell you wash day yesterday was the most enjoyable experience. The shampoo bar did an excellent job cleansing my scalp but did not leave my hair feeling stripped like most shampoos (even sulphate free ones). The conditioner had amazing slip and I didn't have to use handfuls of product to achieve it. I swear I used so much less product with these bars and my hair feelings and looks amazing!! Thank you for making these bars!!
