Another Satisfied User… Kathleen Dodge-DeHaven

I’m always curious as to how and when users and admirers of J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bar first discover the product– their ‘Eureka’ moment when they realize after months or even sometimes years of searching, they have found ‘it’. Kathleen Dodge-DeHaven, a pianist and semi-retired Music Director who occasionally travels out of the country and currently resides on Whidbey Island, Washington, had been doing an Internet search “for quite some time” looking for the perfect shampoo bar…

“When I first started looking, I remembered that there was some form of shampoo bar out there, but I wasn’t sure if it was good for my hair or not and where I could find it. I came across the J.R.LIGGETT company and noticed that there were several different formulas of shampoo bars. I researched pretty carefully, reading reviews on and off the site, and I even looked on to see if the shampoo bar was sold there and what people were saying about it. Seeing positive reviews, I decided to go ahead and give it a try and see if it would work.”     “I found the cost of J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bar a little bit lower than a lot of the other shampoo bars out there, also, it was simply packaged and seemed not to have a lot of bells and whistles, which I thought to be sensible.”

“I’ve just started using the Herbal formula as I was attracted to it because I’m a real nut for cedar and rosemary. I like those kinds of scents around the house, so I thought that would be a good way to start. I thought if I could use that particular shampoo bar with a little more scent to it, surely I could use the other ones. When I first started using the bar, it took a little while to get to where I understood how to lather it up right, as it’s been a long time since I’ve even had a bar of soap in the house. I had to sort of  ‘go back in memory’, figure out how to make the best lather out of it, and how much to use on my hair. At first, I had a little trouble with it, I didn’t think I properly lathered it, but the second time I did just fine–I had plenty of suds. You know we always feel like we’re cleaner if we have more suds, although that’s not necessarily true. I was very pleased with the results. “The shampoo rinsed out really fast and clean, leaving my very light and fine hair shiny, full of body, softly scented, and very easy to comb through.”

“In general, I haven’t had any scalp issues, but I do have sensitive skin. Just about anything can make me break out, so that is something I have to be careful with. I haven’t had any problems with the shampoo bar on my skin at all, and that’s a good sign. My husband has very thick and beautiful hair, and I’m anxious for him to try the Jojoba & Peppermint.”

“I wanted to give the shampoo bar a try at home first to make sure it works. We recently moved and drove quite a long way through a number of states. We ended up here in Washington with it’s hard water and that really took a toll on my hair. There are different amounts of chlorine in the water wherever you go, and my hair was kind of a wreck for awhile. I wanted to be sure that when we did travel, I had a shampoo that works in a variety of waters.” “I went ahead and tried J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bar with our hard water, and it worked fine.” “Since I’m a musician, I’ve done a bit of traveling. My husband is retired and now we’re both planning on traveling, and we wanted to take our favorite shampoo with us, but we didn’t want the hassle of carrying liquids through security nor the danger of spilling, so this shampoo bar is a plus. I’m going to be telling my oldest brother about the Shampoo Bar because I believe he would feel the same as I do about the bar; simple packaging, easy on the hair, and just one product. Certainly after my experience, if anyone tells me they’re having trouble finding the right shampoo, I know I’ll recommend this Shampoo Bar as I like it really well.”

Even though J.R.LIGGETT’S is famously known for their shampoo bar, Kathleen also tried the White Sage Body Oil and had wonderful results. “The delightfully fragranced body oil spray has replaced my skin cream and facial moisturizer. Dry skin is a problem for me, especially in the winter time, but I dislike using lotion on my skin as it leaves it sticky and is then difficult to get dressed. I have always preferred body oils after my bath, but I have found them to not be as effective as the lotions. I decided to give the body oil another try when I ordered my shampoo bar and I really like the way the body oil felt and smelled, so I also tried it on my face and achieved great success.”

On-line security is tremendously important, and after a bit of hesitation and concern on Kathleen‘s part, she placed an order and was delightfully reassured of J.R.LIGGETT‘S commitment to trust and honesty. “Overall, I have been very impressed from the start with J.R.LIGGETT LTD. I originally had some qualms about ordering as I try not to let my credit card number out too often on the Internet. I first went on the site, put something in my cart, and thought, “Hmmm, they don’t take Pay Pal, what will I do?” I went away and thought about it for awhile and then decided, “I’m just going to go ahead and give it a try and cross my fingers…” Immediately, I was just fine with the ordering process because right after placing my order, I received a very professionally worded e-mail confirmation, and then, when my package was on it’s way–which was actually the very next day–I got another e-mail confirmation for shipping. I thought, “Well, for a smaller company, that is quite impressive.” This made me feel that when they are handling things that professionally on their end, I was not going to have any trouble with my credit card and the products and quality would be backed. From that standpoint, I felt very good about the professionalism. It’s been a pleasant experience all the way, it’s nice to have that good feeling, and I don’t feel like I’ve been bombarded with lots of e-mails and advertising.”  “J.R.LIGGETT’S is a company I would definitely deal with (again) and recommend.”
