Last weekend I spent waaay too much money in Lush, so this is the first of a couple of Lush reviews coming up :)
This is the first tub of shampoo I've had from Lush, I used to have a solid shampoo bar a couple of years ago but didn't really stick to it. This 'Big' shampoo is quite unusual, it has loads of large pieces of rock salt through a normal gooey shampoo. Lush claim that this shampoo will give your hair 'big' volume and they're definitely right. After using this, a quick blast of the hairdryer turned my hair into a giant mane, amazing!
The pieces of salt through the shampoo gentle exfoliate your scalp. I love this as I use quite a lot of hairspray and products like Dust It which always feel like they clog up your scalp and hair follicles, so sometimes a good scrub is needed! Lush recommend shampooing twice with this product, however I didn't find that necessary. When I first put the shampoo onto my hair, it didn't lather up much, but when I stuck my head under the water again it lathered up really well! This shampoo created the most bubbles I've ever seen, I think it just takes a bit more water to make it bubble due to the amount of salty lumps haha. The clumps of salt do take some getting used to, they fall out of your hair as you're washing it so there's a kind of sprinkling noise as you're washing!
I think this shampoo has a lovely lemony smell, not really salty at all, but Josh said my hair smelt like the seaside. But I think he was just biased because he'd seen it in the shower and knew it was sea salt shampoo!
Overall I really like this shampoo and it does exactly what Lush say, creates volume! It is quite expensive for a shampoo, definitely a lot more than the big value bottles of Tresemme I usually buy for me and Josh (he's banned from using this one), however I do think it's worth the money for a treat! I won't be using this shampoo every time I wash my hair, to preserve it a little bit, but it'll definitely be used before nights out/special occasions. Keep your eyes peeled for my Lush conditioner review coming soon :)
Have you tried the Lush Big Sea Salt shampoo? What did you think?
What do you think to washing your hair with clumps of salt? x
