Okay, the smell of this is hard to describe. I thought it would smell more like coconut, but not the case. It has a very unpleasing odor to me. But it does clean my fine, chemically treated hair very nicely. I'm not fortunate enough to not use a conditioner because of the abuse and sun I put my hair through. But I can see how some may be able to get away with no conditioner as it states.
Thanks to being able to use a conditioner on my hair this pretty much takes care of the smell. I'm not sure I'd want to use this otherwise. My hair is very clean and soft. But be warned that this does not get super thick lather in my hair. On the second wash (lets face it, I sweat a lot and get exposed to all types of dirt and dust when I camp) is when I do get most of the lathering, but not a great deal. But my hair always comes out clean and as long as I don't do a lot of outdoorsy stuff it seems to stay clean longer without needing to be washed.
We take this with us camping because we can put it in a plastic travel soap dish. Hubby has thicker hair and he said it is hard for him to rinse out and he's not big on the smell either. But overall it is okay. It cleans our hair and is easy to transport. Bonus if you fly - no need to unpack with the rest of your liquid items because it is a solid! I may try another bar to see if the smell goes away, but I really like the conditioning of this one. This one may just stay as part of our camping take along items. I wouldn't leave this in any place that gets hot because I believe it would melt.
