Are the liquid shampoo and shampoo bar different?

Apart from the obvious - formula-wise, absolutely nothing. They're the exact same recipe!

Both are handmade in small batches of pure, all natural ingredients. The Bar undergoes a curing (hardening) process, while the Liquid is left as is once completed. Due to a by-product of the curing process, the Bar will foam up when you lather it like a traditional shampoo, but the Liquid will foam so little as to be almost nil in comparison. Despite this, its cleansing action is the same. Really.

A similar foaming action in the Liquid could be achieved through the use of foaming agents solely for that purpose, and we like to keep it as natural as possible.
