Lush Hair Edition

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.

Have you tried much from the Lush haircare range? What are your thoughts?

  • I love Lush and have passed the love of Lush over to my Daughter as she always begs me to go in there when we are out shopping. Like you though I have never used their shampoos before, so found this really interesting thank you.

  • No I haven't but I have heard quite a lot about these products. Looks fab.

  • I've never tried the haircare, and always find the bottles a little on the small side to justify the price to be honest.

  • Rehab shampoo is amazing, I've recently picked up a sample of the Roots hair treatment to try as I have heard it is really great for your scalp

  • surprisingly, lush is a place I've never been to as I wouldn't know what to try first, any suggestions?

  • Wow that shampoo bar is incredible value for money if you get that many washes out of it. Must look into getting one – Having 3 daughters who swim at least 3 times a week each plus daily showers means we get through a hell of a lot of shampoo!

  • I love lush but I've always been a bit wary of their hair products (I don't really know why tho!) after reading this I think I'll try one of the shampoo bars tho

  • I love the copperhead shampoo because it does last forever and feels nice too. You've reminded me to go buy some 😉

  • i love lush bath bombs but i have never actually used any of the shampoos, i may have to try one x

  • oh I love the bath bombs but have never tried the hair section so may have to now

  • I've actually never tried lush products. I really should try them out!

  • I think I may be the only person that hasn't tried lush yet, glad you like their products.

  • I've never seen the hair products. I've also not yet tried a bath bomb of theres although I received some recently so shall be trying soon

  • I love the Lush hair care range, they have some fab products

  • I much prefer their skincare/ bath bomb range and especially their bath bombs because the hair products were a miss for me. I have always been curious about the bars too!

  • I love their honey shampoo – I really should order some more as I ran out a while back. x

  • I used to use a blonde shampoo bar years ago from Lush and it was absolutely brilliant, so effective xxx

  • I've never tried any of the Lush range but after reading everyone's raving reviews I want to!

  • I'm the same as you, I wash my hair every day and if I don't, it gets super greasy. I'd also not tried any of the hair products until recently. Tbh, I don't notice much of a difference over my regular products, so I often search for a cheaper alternative…

  • I think everyone has a soft spot for Lush! I've never tried their hair products but if they're as good as their body products then obviously I should!

  • Apart from bath bombs I don't use any other lush products but maybe I should, they always smell heavenly.

  • I love Lush and so does my daughter, I've only actually tried a couple of their haircare products which I didn't think were that great so didn't try any others. I might have to give a shampoo bar a try though as everyone raves about them!

  • I've never tried any of these but have used a few of their products. I really love the Curly Wurly shampoo and I used to use the henna to dye my hair but eventually found melting the blocks was too much fuss!

  • I'm intrigued by the shampoo bar, so I'm glad you said that one is something you liked. I'll look into it then!

    I’ve tried a few Lush hair products and I’ve been disappointed by the majority of them – Veganese and I in particular really didn’t get along. So far Big is the only hair product I’ve repurchased. It’s a shame as I absolutely adore Lush products but I feel the ones intended for hair aren’t on par with the rest of their items.

    I am a big fan of Rehab, it smells just absolutely divine and the dry shampoo No Drought is also amazing if you havent tried it x

  • Hannah Malanga

    I LOVE the look of the sea salt shampoo! It looks so different form anything I have seen before. Sea salt is great for everything, I love it

  • Mandi Morrison

    Love the sound of a shampoo bar, my toddler has a habit of tipping bottles of shampoo down the plughole, disappointing that the actual shampoos did live up to expectations

  • Rhian Westbury

    Either one of their bath bombs/ bubble bars, some of the shower gel or a nice cleanser 😀
