Despite the fact that I always insist I'm not a Lush fan I seem to want to try quite a few of their products, my current obsession was with their shampoo bars, I'd seen some on a YouTube videos & was intrigued so I popped down to my local Lush for a nosey.
|Godiva Shampoo Conditioning Bar|
Ok so when it came to shower time tonight I stood there & wished I'd read some instructions on what you're actually meant to do but I improvised & went with just rubbing it over my wet hair & I have to say it lathers up very well (more on that to come) & made my hair feel very very clean. It is described as having added conditioning properties but to be honest I needed to follow with conditioner, I could have braved it to see what my hair would be like to brush afterwards but i'm really not brave enough, is it just me that's paranoid about the amount of hair I shed to the point of looking at products aimed at hair loss in women, I was afraid it would be impossible to brush out so I caved & conditioned it.
Once I blow dried my hair quickly I noticed a couple of things, my roots felt amazingly soft (where I hadn't conditioned) & really really light & bouncy, I think this would count as a clarifying shampoo in my books so not one I'd use regularly but once a week/twice a month otherwise the ends of my hair would end up extremely dry but it was nice to have some sort of conditioning agent (although not enough for my long hair) added to my roots as I only ever condition the ends
Overall I have to say I quite like using this, the smell of the shampoo does linger in your hair so make sure you like the smell of the one you go for & it does clean your hair really well, I have just one problem, why is the number one ingredient Sodium lauryl sulphate? I thought Lush was all about the natural ingredients yet they use an artificial foaming agent like this, I have use plenty of SLS free shampoo's that I swear by so I don't know why Lush can't replace this ingredient for a more environmentally friendly natural one. For that reason I probably wont purchase this again & go back to the more natural ones & is why I probably wouldn't want to recommend this to people, it's not worth the £6 they charge when the top ingredient is SLS, go for the Tresseme Naturals shampoo instead (smells a lot better & suitable to use everyday as well).
Have any of you tried a Lush shampoo bar? what did you think about it??
