On average, 1 shampoo soap will last most experienced users around 2 weeks of daily use, or about 14 washes on average.
Hair length, thickness, texture, and level of oil/grease/dirt to cleanse will affect this number. The longer, thicker, dirtier, and more textured your hair is, the more you will need to apply for a good wash.
Another beginner’s adjustment is not properly washing (not applying and lathering enough), which causes soap residue in certain places and feels much like the detox symptoms. Here is our article about how to wash properly: https://perma-earth.com/directions/soap-directions/

Not only does it smell amazing but my hair has never done as well with a natural product as it does with the shampoo bars! After 7 washes I could wear my hair down and curled!!! I could tell there was definitely a detox period I was going through which was an amazing thing!!!! I never really believed there was really a detox period with natural products I just thought it was a gimmick…but now I KNOW it is true! At first my hair was heavy and weighted down from scalp to tips, and then the hair at my scalp felt clean the down it went more and more of my hair would feel clean and ith each wash…until the tips of my hair were the only waxy and heavy part. Then…bam my whole hair was clean and manageable! I also started using a lemon juice rinse (1/2 c. Juice to 1 & 1/2 c. Water) after my shampooing and it gets my hair even softer! Wish this was the first natural product I had tried because I’ve spent soooooo much money it’s ridiculous! Will never go back to conventional shampoo and conditioner ever again. I’ve received compliments and my hubby even likes it. And there hasn’t been too many products he’s really liked. Amazing!!! The Pearberry bar even smells up our whole bathroom just sitting out on the side of my tub! APPROVED

This is a great way to try different scents and see what you like. It’s also great for giving as gifts to people. I found it really helpful because I realized that although the fragrances don’t bother me like other fragrances do, they are still too strong for my liking. I much prefer the unscented or the ones that use essential oils.

I just received my order today.
I have to hesitantly admit that I am rather disappointed by the soap bundle I received. I have not had the same experience with this particular purchase as the 3 other reviews posted at this time (10/21/22).
As shown in the picture I included with this review, I received samples with the following labels: Frankincense, Pure & Simple, Simply Clean, Unscented Goat Milk, Tallow & Goat.
I am disappointed because:
– 4/5 samples are unscented. I am an individual who can sometimes be sensitive to fragrance so I thought this sample bundle would be a great cautious way to help me decide which full size scented bar I would purchase next.
– I actually ordered a full size ” Simply Clean” bar within the same order as this bundle so it’s a bit redundant to also get one as a sample. This one might just be bad luck because maybe the bundles are pre-packaged so duplicates happen sometimes?
– I just don’t feel like I had a good variety in the bundle. There are SO MANY interesting scents listed on this website that I wanted to try and I spent a lot of time shrinking my cart size down to a dollar amount I could afford. The product descriptions for the listings for the Simply Clean, Pure & Simple, Unscented Goat Milk (both tallow & lard versions) all make a point of saying these are some of the least expensive soaps available due to their limited ingredients (which is great in many respects! Please don’t get me wrong here!). But that leads me to infer that 4/5 samples I was given are the lowest priced, so this bundle was not a cost effective method for me to try a more expensive scented bar on a smaller scale. If the balance of scented to unscented bars in my bundle was different, this would not be a complaint of mine. And again, other reviewers seem to have had a better, more balanced bundle.
The listing does say “If you have a special request, please let us know in your order note, but there are no guarantees on availability” so,
when placing my order, I included the following comment:
Hi! It would be cool & greatly appreciated if there was a Deep Woods Hunter’s Soap and/or a Pear Berry Orchard Soap among the sample bundle. But it is not expected, I will be thrilled at whatever selection I receive 🙂 Thank you in advance for the consideration. Take care, Christine
PS – perhaps for the holiday season there could be an option to order 2x soap sample bundles? I will be sharing this soap bundle with my mom but I would’ve liked to order a second for my sister as a gift as she doesn’t live in the same city as me. Just a thought, thanks again!!”
I have to say I am now glad I couldn’t purchase a second soap bundle after getting this one. I tried to be easy going and non-demanding about my bundle. I hope this review doesn’t sound whiny because I am well aware that the listing clearly states “you get what you get”… but the soap sample bundles photo used for this listing along with the other reviews created a certain expectation in my mind.
I have given this review 3 stars because I believe the Perma Earth team has only the best of intentions when creating their products. I appreciate their openness and honesty about how they source their ingredients and the fact that they take the time to share their reason for using or not using certain ingredients. Their dedication to educating people on real, quality soap really shines!
Going forward I would rather take my chance purchasing a single full soap bar than to try another soap bundle. I hope this review can act as a caution to others and provide some points for the company to consider when assembling the soap bundles.
Thanks for listening! I look forward to sending in product usage reviews once I’ve had an opportunity to demo the products for a while! And I’ve already been eyeing up bath bombs for my next order 🙂

Hi Christine! Thank you for your honest review and overlooking your request we did discuss it and we decided that since we did not have those 2 specific requests and you seemed to like unscented items that we would include more unscented options for you to try, as far as we could tell since the soap bundles are pre-packaged. If you wanted to try more fragranced or scented varieties you can most certainly request that. We did update the bundles to be able to have multiple buys during checkout, however some scents may be replicated very closely when buying more than one due to limited availability, which is why we had that restriction on it. We do absolutely do our best to fulfill any request one makes in the order notes and we wish we could do more! Hopefully with this in mind about our process you can let us know in your order note next time that you really want to try a variety of any scents we have rather than us trying to guess what else you would prefer if we do not have the scents you requested available. We are very sorry for your disappointing experience!

I often get bored of using one smell for so long. The bundle soap is a perfect way to smell different each week. My skin has never felt more soft since switching over to perma-earth too

Oh man! This was such a great idea and I hope they never stop doing this!! I wanted to venture out and try various soaps and smells (I am all about the fragrance) and decided to give this a try. This is a great way to learn what you and your hair like and find your match. I was lucky enough to get one I had been meaning to buy and others I would have never though and liked! It’s a bargain what you get for the price; you can get enough washes out of the bar to know if it’s something worth buying as full size. Give it a try!

This was such a fun way to try out different kinds of soaps like the shampoo bars or hand soaps! I’ve already found a new soap I want to buy in full size that I probably would’ve never bought had I not tried the soap sample bundle!
