If there’s one thing I bloody love reading it’s peoples Lush hauls and seeing all the amazing products that they seem to buy. Considering I read so many they all seem different because Lush have so many amazing products. I thought about doing haul posts but seeing as I shop in there so often this would probably get a bit too much but I thought i’d break down my loves into areas. Bath products would seem like an obvious one to start with but as I only have a bath every week or so I’d be here forever working my way through my collection so I thought i’d begin with a hair edition.
Before Christmas I’d actually never used any of Lush’s hair products which was a bit silly and since then I’ve been trying to work my way through them to see which ones worked best for me. I wash my hair every day which I know is bad but even though I’ve tried training my hair not to need it it gets super greasy if I don’t.
The first thing I tried was their I Love Juicy shampoo because I was won over by the smell as it’s like a fruit cocktail mixed into a bottle. It is designed to cleanse and refresh hair and leave it super shiny but for the price I’m not 100% convinced. It leaves my head feeling hydrated and refreshed but it didn’t seem to do a whole lot more than a regular cheaper alternative from Boots. This is the reason that I buy smaller bottles from Lush because until I know they’re 100% worth it I don’t want to shell out quite a lot of money.
Next up I tried their Rehab shampoo and the first thing I noticed was the slight smell of mint, it was just super fresh. Now despite my love of the scents and things just like I Love Juicy I didn’t feel that it did anything more than a bog standard drugstore shampoo which really disappointed me as I wanted to love it. Hopefully the other hair products will prove better for me.
I was really intrigued by the sound of the ‘Big’ Sea Salt Shampoo because sea salt isn’t something you usually find and being in a pot rather than a bottle it’s a little different from anything else I’d tried before. The sea salt really worked well in exfoliating and soothing my scalp and you really didn’t need much of the product for it to work in my hair and I was actually surprised that it lathered. It definitely added a bit of volume to my hair so I was definitely impressed. Only issue was it was a little tricky to use because I wanted to twist the top back on to avoid water getting in but I had product in my hand, something I’ll need to master!
The final shampoo product that I used was the Copperhead Shampoo Bar. I bought this as I was more intrigued about how a shampoo bar would work but it actually makes a lot of sense. Just like a soap you rub the bar in your hands while in the shower and it begins to foam up quite quickly and you then use this on your hair. There is no strong scent to the bar which is good but with the addition of some conditioning henna it really gave my hair some shine which coupled with the cocoa butter which moisturized my hair I definitely felt a difference. The one I bought is ideal for people with dark or coloured hair which was perfect for me and I really noticed a difference using it. Even better is that it lasts between 80 and 100 washes so it’s great value for money.
The final thing I tried was their Veganese conditioner which gave me a lot more to be excited about than the shampoos. The conditioner is light and creamy so it didn’t feel like it left behind a big build up in my hair like some other conditioners and it really did both soften my hair and make it feel silky smooth. The scent is very minimal with a little bit of lemon (to help gloss the hair) and a bit of lavender which (to help sooth your scalp).
The Lush haircare range has been a bit hit or miss for me but it doesn’t make me love them any less, I’ll just need to try more of the range to make any decision.
