Headcave Mop Top Shampoo Bar by Primal Suds


We are super excited to be stocking this amazing product from Primal Suds!

MOP TOP is the one for “normal” hair if there is such a thing. With the addition of coconut milk MOP TOP can also help all you mop tops out there with its untangling properties and banana powder because who doesn’t know bananas are good for your barnet…..banana barnet. With fruity juniper notes will also appeal to all you Gin and Tonic heads.

Marshmallow Root, Jojoba Oil, Argan oil, Hemp oil, Caster oil, Avocado oil, Rice powder, Aloe Vera, Clays


Lather up in hand then add suds to hair, don’t slap bar straight into hair as it contains lots of unsaponified oils that need a bit of sudsification before application.

You may want to do an apple cider vinegar rinse during this phase or lemon juice will work as well, or do both if you’re feeling crazy……lemon juice is less curl inducing. This is especially important in hard water areas. Simply dilute in water to the same ratio of orange squash.

You’ll need to dry the bar out between cleans.

All soaps are non-returnable due to hygiene.

Feels lovely

When you lather it onto your hands it is very creamy, almost like conditioner. Your hair will feel fresh and silky. For me, it doesn’t quite suit. I’m an old chook with very fine, thin hair. It is very limp once dry. This will be the perfect shampoo for Dryish hair. The only reason I gave it a 4 star was because it doesn’t quite suit me. It smells lovely and it will certainly last a long time. I hope there is a version for lifeless, limp hair!

Too heavy

I thought I'd give this shampoo bar a go and unfortunately I found it too heavy on my hair leaving it greasy and flat even when I used a very small amount. Lovely packaging, however not for me.

Hey Hannah, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! I'm really sorry to hear that this shampoo wasn't quite right for you. There is a transition perdio when switching over to a natural shampoo bar and it can sometimes take up to a month for your hair to get used to the natural oils. Primal Suds say it's really important to persevere though! There's some more info on their website about this: https://primalsuds.com/head-cave/ Beth x
Smells incredible, feels super clean

I love the smell of this shampoo bar! It leaves my hair feeling cleaner than any shampoo I've tried. I have thick hair and sometimes need to apply twice (wet hair, shampoo, rinse, shampoo) to get all of my hair clean but that's a small price to pay for the smell and feel! Love the low impact packaging and ethos of primal suds, plus it seems to last for ages - I've been using the bar for 2 months now and there's still plenty left, it hasn't broken or crumbled. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to take the leap from liquid to a bar!

Smells nice

This smells lovely, and love the shampoo bar idea but unfortunately deosn't work on my extremely thick hair. It just leaves really bad build up after only one wash. I'm sure this would work for most people, just not for me.

Hey Zoe, Ah, so sorry to hear the shampoo bar isn't working perfectly for you. Glad you loved the smell though - it is lovely. Love, Liv x
Head cave for my mop top

I love the shampoo bar. It works really well. I use a conditioning mask more regularly since using it but my hair is corse, curly and dry, not the normal hair the product description suggests. Even so I love using it. It soaps up lovely and smells delicious. I’ve got so much hair and still don’t feel like I need that much of it to do the trick. Everyone in my house is using it now!
