Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars

(71 customer reviews)


Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars are a planet-friendly, hair nourishing way to condition your hair. Full of natural, organic ingredients, these bars are handmade and hand-poured in small batches, then lovingly sent to you in Zero-Waste packaging. Their name comes from the Tolkien Quenya Elvish word lassëa meaning “with leaves, leafy.”

Aroma: Eventide A night-blooming forest undulating with dusky vanilla and flashes of crisp evening dew. Unisex.
Note: Most people will find that they go through the shampoo bar about twice as fast as the conditioner bar. With this in mind, consider the Leaf sized conditioner and the Lembas sized shampoo, or two shampoo bars to one same-sized conditioner bar if you want them to run out at the same time (the sample is not half the size of the Leaf, so I don’t recommend this pairing). Your results may vary.

Select from a sample rosette, Leaf (~2oz / 60g), or Lembas (~4oz / 100g). There may be slight weight variations due to the handmade poured nature of the bars.


Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars Ingredients

BTMS Emulsifying Conditioner, Cetearyl Alcohol, Refined Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Kokum Butter, d-Panthenol, Vitamin E Oil, Optiphen, Slippery Elm, Aloe Vera Gel, Cedarwood Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Lime Essential Oil, Petitgrain Essential Oil, Sage Essential Oil, Benzoin Essential Oil, Peru Balsam Essential Oil, and Vanilla Bourbon CO2 Extract

What is a solid conditioner bar?

A solid conditioner bar is the solid form of the liquid version.  Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars are much more concentrated than traditional liquid conditioners, even other leave-in conditioners. They’re packed with restorative butters, slippery herbs, and soothing oils.

Some of the benefits of Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars include:

  • Zero Waste / No Plastic- Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars have no plastic packaging, and come in either a compostable pouch or brown kraft clamshell. The paper washi tape and instructions can be recycled.
  • pH Balanced- Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars are pH balanced to keep your scalp and hair happy.
  • Lower Carbon Footprint- Because there’s no excess water weight, the carbon cost to ship Lassëa Solid conditioner Bars is much lower than that of a liquid conditioner.
  • Color &  Henna Friendly- Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars are immensely gentle, allowing hair colors and other treatments to last longer on your hair. While some conditioners can overload hennaed hair on protein and leave it feeling stiff and crunchy, Lassëa is formulated to play nice with hennaed hair.
  • Less water = more of the good stuff- Being formulated without water means more of all those fantastic ingredients. Even with adding water to activate the bar, it means your hair is getting a bigger dose of all the important ingredients.
  • Longer product life- Like any product, the number of uses will depend greatly on how often you use it, how much you use each time, and how you store it in between uses. But generally speaking a Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bar will last a long time so long as you don’t leave it in a place that collects water, and, instead, allow it to drain and dry before the next use.
  • Travel, gym & camping friendly- Liquid conditioners have annoying restrictions when flying and the potential to leak. Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars are hassle-free no matter how you’re traveling or where you’re stowing them.

Can I use the bars as a leave-in?

You can!  When you finish your shower you can add a tiny swipe of Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bar to the ends for extra conditioning and protecting.

What makes Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars Unique and Amazing?

Both what’s in it, and what isn’t! Most shampoo and conditioner bars are stuffed full of oils, but as we’ve discussed in the past, oils are not moisturizing. You’ll find truly moisturizing ingredients like Slippery Elm and Aloe Vera Gel, which you already know and love from Selkie Herbal Detangler.  These bars also use paraben-free and formaldehyde-free preservatives and pure essential oils rather than fragrance oils.

Essentially, I took everything you love about Selkie Herbal Detangler and turned it into a pH balanced, moisturizing, naturally detangling shampoo and conditioner bar set, including the signature Eventide aroma of crisp sea-spray over alluring sun-basked vanilla and herbs.


The most important thing to remember is that Lassëa Solid Conditioner Bars need generous amounts of water to activate!

  1. Soak hair with water. Water will help create much-needed slip, so make sure your hair is dripping wet and soaked through.
  2. Wet the bar. You don’t need to douse the bar, but a light pass under the shower will activate its surface.
  3. Smooth through. Apply the bar directly to hair, starting near the roots and moving down to the ends like you’re combing. You may have to re-wet your hair or the bar as you go.
  4. Let it work. Gently massage the conditioner through your hair and leave it sit 3-5 minutes for maximum benefit.
  5. Rinse well. Rinse well, including your skin. Lassëa  is very rich and may need to be gently washed away from your neck and back with a body cleanser to prevent breakouts.
  6. Reapply to the ends. Add a small amount more to the ends and leave it in for smooth, shining, tangle-free hair.


Allow the bars to dry out in between each use. Once dry they can be stored in a closed container if desired. Depending on the composition of your water, Lassëa Solid Conditioner bars may turn brown on the outside over time. This is harmless and in no way affects the function of the bar.

    A great conditioner that truly lasts forever! I have hair to my knees and the tiny amount that I need with every wash, is amazing! I could literally use half a bottle of liquid conditioner, but with the bar I only need like “three strokes” on each section. I’ve been lucky enough to have used this bar for over a year now and it works wonders for my hair!

    I have never found an effective solid conditioner bar, but I trust Nightblooming so I decided to try a sample size. I’ve used it a few times now, and I have to say, I’m impressed. The scent is wonderful, and the bars work really well. I especially like adding a tiny bit of the conditioner bar to my ends after rinsing as a light leave-in. My hair feels and looks great, and I feel good about not having all the plastic bottles and excess packaging. If you’re on the fence, I highly recommend giving these a try!

    I have used bottled shampoo and conditioner my whole life (usually the cheap stuff like Suave) but the last couple of years switched to what I thought was healthier (sulfate-free). Though I didn’t notice a huge difference, the smell of the shampoo and condition was AMAZING. I have now been using the Lassea shampoo and conditioner bars for a couple weeks and my hair has never felt healthier. It’s smooth, it’s not snarly, it just feels amazing. I do have to say, though, that my husband was not as happy as I was. At least ten times I stopped him to say “feel my hair!!!” – he got a little annoyed. Anyhow, I strongly suggest you try this out, even the sample size just to see for yourself. Love, love, LOVE, both the shampoo and condition!

    I got this as a companion to the shampoo bar and I’m very happy with it! It’s got enough slip, and my hair feels soft without feeling greasy.

    I’ve been using shampoo and conditioner bars mainly from Lush for a few years now, so when I heard these were coming, I was excited! However, once I actually used them, the difference in my hair was night and day. It’s so much softer and smoother than it’s been in a long time, even though I had just hennaed, which generally makes it feel a bit coarse for a while. This was noticable after the first wash, and has continued over the past few weeks. The conditioner is so much easier to apply than my old bar; I used to really have to work to get enough in my hair, but with this all it takes is a few light swipes over each section and I’m good to go. The leaf shape is perfect for me since it fits in my hand well (I was constantly dropping my old bar) and my hair slides nicely through the groove in the middle. I also like that they’re the same scent as the Selkie detangling spray (also awesome!) so they all smell good together. It’s hard to say how long each bar will last, but after several uses my Leaf size bar doesn’t really look much smaller. I also wanted to mention Melissa’s superb customer service after my package had a little mishap during transit. She responded right away and had the replacement shipped out the next business day!

    This was my first conditioner bar experience. It was difficult to get the product onto my hair. I was trying not to get the conditioner on my scalp so just used the small sample in the length over each shoulder. Once I felt I had a good amount of product on the length I started to rinse it out but would pull the length on top of my head so that the rinsed out product would run through all my hair again. The hair air dried nicely and I experienced less fall out after combing than usual. The length seems to tangle less and it doesn’t look piecey or greasy. I look forward to using this again!

    Been waiting like a year for these shampoo and conditioner bars ( after I tried the Selkie Herbal Detangler-love it). I ordered the leaf size shampoo and conditioner. ( I figured if I ordered the sample size and really liked it -I’d have to reorder and I might run out-so I orded the next size up- if I wasn’t happy with it oh well- I tried so many shampoo and conditioners over the years and spent so much money what’s one more time). I’ve only been using for a few days- never use shampoo or conditioner bars before. I have to say “I’m absolutely loving it!!!” So easy! The slip is great for my fine hair. Love that it’s pH balance (which is helping my scalp) and less knots and tangles. My hair looks and feels healthier after first use ( I never say that about any product I’ve tried on my hair- except for the selkie detangler). My hair is finicky and healing (after being attacked with scalp ringworm last year – yes horrible and tragic, but with believing,healing prayer, and a shampoo and conditioner that is actually good for you- it’s getting better), so I’m going to give it some more time- but so far it is great! Hoping I can toss out all my other shampoo and conditioner bottles soon! Thanks, Melissa for another great product! Hope you ankle heels quick- I had surgery this past year and I know how that is! Well off to shower and use my wonderful shampoo and conditioner bars!

    I’d given up on shampoos over all (until the Nightblooming shampoo bars, omgosh) and spent the past 6+ years in the depths of cowashing. I cannot tell you how many conditioners I have tried, used, self-mixed, and changed. This conditioner bar has solved all my woes. My hair immediately felt soft, slippy, light, and pulled itself up into way more curls than I thought I had!

    While I am that odd one out that uses more conditioner than shampoo it seems, but let me attest how much longer this bar lasts than any bottle of conditioner out there.

    I waited two weeks to post because I adore the visual and scent appeal, but a hair product needs to do more than just look and smell amazing. And this delivers. I was not prepared for how much it would deliver. I didn’t mean to change shampoo and conditioner products–I have been happy with sulfate-free shampoo and cone-free conditioner for my fine thick 2A hip length hair for years. YEARS! I thought I had figured out my routine and seen my hair at the best it could be and really done everything right. I didn’t know my hair could be elevated THAT MUCH more. It is clean, it is shinier than I’ve ever seen it, and it is literally smooth and cool to touch like satin. I have never had results like this. First time I used the conditioner, I rinsed it out and it didn’t deposit enough behind. Learned that I need to work with the bar for a little while to loosen up enough of the good stuff to get a good coating. And I am not rinsing it out. I slather it in, coating it well until its finger comable throughout, and then I damp-bun. I’ve done that procedure twice now. It’s not coated or built up, it’s not piecy, it’s just slippery like dream hair. Thank you Melissa. You knocked it out of the park. I hope you’re ready to make this forever, because I am NEVER GOING BACK!!!!!!!!

    I am in love with this stuff, it gives me the best slip of my life. It gives you that nice seaweed-y feeling and doesn’t take a lot to get to that point, and I love using an extra little bit on my ends at the end of my wash and it makes them so nice and soft when dry. I went through the sample size and immediately got the full size once I was out of it. It’s just so good!!

    This is my second order of the shampoo and conditioner bars! I’m still on my first bars, but I always like to have a backup on hand- don’t want to run out! I have been using the shampoo and conditioner bars for almost 3 weeks now. My hair is very soft and has shine! I haven’t had any shine in my hair in ages, so I’m really loving that! The conditioner is especially good for fine tangly hair – like mine! Come to think of it the shampoo and conditioner bars are actually easier to use than traditional shampoo and conditioner bottles. I actually save time not having to open and close and pour out correct amounts – so time and ease of use – bonus there! The shampoo and conditioner bars I leave out on a raised tray and they don’t dry out – they work the same every time! If you leave a bottle open you know it’s going to dry and cake up on the opening. So I love the ease of using these! If you haven’t tried them yet, get the little trial size blossoms, I’m sure you’ll love it!

    I got the sample sizes to try out, since my hair is picky. Both the shampoo and conditioner wash out cleanly and leave the yummy scent behind. They’re great for traveling too, much less bulky than my normal full size bottles that I hate lugging around. They last a decently long time, especially compared to the amount of liquid products I would be using even on my short pixie hair.

    I have thin hair, but a lot of it and it’s nearly waist length. I’ve never used solid conditioner before and I am SO happy with the results. My hair feels hydrated but not weighed down. I got a sample of the shampoo and conditioner first and after 3 uses I knew I needed the full size! I got a lembas shampoo and leaf conditioner based on Melissa’s recommendation. I can definitely say with my samples that it’s a good top tip, my shampoo sample is definitely smaller than my conditioner sample.

    This is my second order. The first time I just got the small, rosettes and found it difficult to work the conditioner into my hair. This time I got the largest size and it is so much easier to use. In the picture is the new, large conditioner bar and the old, medium shampoo bar, half used.

    I love how this feels in my hair, and how my hair feels after I get out of the shower! Plus, it smells wonderful as well, and I’m glad it’s a different color than the shampoo as it makes it easy to tell them apart. When I finish with the leaf, I’ll be sure to get more!

    I wanted to see how Melissa’s conditioner would work for my hair. I’ve had pretty dry ends for a while and haven’t found a natural product that helped. So far, the sample bar has helped some. I’m excited to keep using it and will probably purchase the larger size.

    Like the shampoo bar, the conditioning bar left my hair much softer and silkier than I had anticipated. The best part is that it rinses clean and didn’t make my hair feel sticky with product or slick with oil. I purchased it with the signature scent which I am fond of (it’s like an aromatherapy pick-me-up). While not necessarily part of the effectiveness, I get a real uplift from how lovely looking this bar is (I bought the leaf size). When it comes time to replace it I’ll probably get the lembas size — but who knows, maybe I’ll get one of each!

    I have seriously never used a conditioner that gives this much slip. It feels so nice to use and really helps keep frizz down without flattening my natural texture!

    My hair is overcoming years of damage, and this has been exactly the remedy I needed while stepping away from using sulfates and silicones. At first I found myself using quite a lot as my hair was so dry and brittle, but over time, I have found myself needing less and less of the product. The formula truly is a godsend, especially for my ends!

    Still getting the hang of using a solid conditioner! I definitely seem to need more than the instructions call for in order to get good slip. I’ve also noticed more hair shed than usual when i use this, but that could just be happening regardless.

    Love, love, love both the Shampoo & Conditioner! My normally crunchy, tangly hair feels so soft and ‘normal’ again. I like the scent so much I’ve been bathing my whole body with it, and the conditioner makes a great shave cream. Please don’t ever stop making these! Bonus….now I can get rid of the army of plastic bottles cluttering my shower. 🙂

    I have dry, coarse wavy hair and this conditioner has been a life saver! I rub a few strokes in and let it soak while I finish my other shower duties, when I rinse it out my hair is soft and silky. I have lately been leaving a tiny bit on my ends. I wet my hands and rub the bar in them, kind of like a bar of soap, and then run my fingers through the ends of my hair. When my hair dries my waves/curls are moisturized and well defined. I will definitely be coming back for a larger bar when this sample runs out!

    I ordered a Leaf of Shampoo and a sample of conditioner after reading that the shampoo itself is quite conditioning. And it is perfect so far! I only need a bit for my ends (I have fine bra strap length hair). I use the detangling spray too but sometimes the shampoo and conditioner are enough – Melissa has created amazing hair care products and I hope she never stops 💖💜🩶💜💖
