My experience with the product:
Before I could get my hands on this shampoo scone, I was not aware of any herbal personal care brand making these solid shampoos too, other than liquid ones. During my exploration of the SaND For Soapaholics collection, I was enticed to give it a try because the scones reminded me of yesteryears when mom used to have shampoo bars at home and trusted them like anything. Frankly speaking, I had my apprehensions of using the scones as I have completely forgotten about ages old system of shampoo bars and found it inappropriate for today's self care system. But at the same time, I expected that so much of advancement in crafting these chemical free products must have got something special in it.

Finally, here is how I felt about a shampoo scone after its usage. I received Yellow Submarine Shampoo Scone which is a lovely bright yellow shampoo cake cut in triangular shape.

The first glimpse of the scone and everyone was like its a dessert ready to be tasted ;) It looks so tempting I swear and you need real courage to resist your craving to take a bite.

The scone is infused with divine scent. As I smelt it, it was quite strong fragrance that remained there on my fingers for next few minutes. The fragrance gives a feel of something pure and natural, not weird as chemical ones.

I was extremely excited to try the scone on my hair, so tried it the very next morning. I was pleasantly surprised with how well it worked on my tresses. It took no time to produce rich lather as I rubbed it on my wet hair few times. I never realized that its a solid shampoo cake in use. The creamy lather felt soft n smooth on hair.

Another plus that I experienced using the scone was quicker shower as it eliminated the need of using a rinse-off conditioner after the head bath. I was so happy with the outcome that the shampoo scone was no longer stripping my hair of all it’s natural oils and I won't need to walk around with unclean hair.

The fragrance which I found strong as I sniffed the bar, doesn't actually linger on for long but a mild effect is left behind in your locks. The hair length as well as the scalp is nourished with revitalizing properties of excellent ingredients and natural oils gone into the scone.

Uplifting Scent.
Cute Color.
Rich Lather.
Gives optimum hair cleansing.
Easy to rinse off.
Enriched with premium oils

Very Expensive
Not easily available.


  1. Ohkk it is shampoo basically :D Looks like Mithai;)

  2. so what is the difference between this and the hair wash soap we used to get few years back.

  3. This scone indeed sounds, looks & smells delicious but the price is not at all delicious. Yet I would definitely like to give it a try. It did look like a sweet (Rasmalia) to me at the beginning. Sand for Soapaholics is natural brand which attracts me to theses products.


Thank you for stopping by. Your opinion matters to me.
