Lush Big Shampoo Review

Before I joined review sites i'd never heard of Lush in my life but with the sheer volume of Lush reviews on review sites it's very hard to ignore them. After reading a fair few dozen I swore i'd never become a Lush addict myself as their products seemed waaay too expensive for my tight-arse taste. Well I did manage to stay away from these products for quite a while helped by the fact that Doncaster hasn't got a Lush shop but unfortunately I was gradually drawn towards them and recently spent my entire birthday money at their website and ordered a whole bunch of expensive products. This is very rare for me as I don't tend to splash out on myself. I get more enjoyment from splashing out on Hubby and Son than I could ever get out of buying stuff for me.

BUT I have to admit I was curious about Lush from the start. Not because everyone seems to love them. More like the fact their products have such fantastically original names it kinda made me want to try them out. So amongst a few other purchases I bought the Lush Big Shampoo. The Lush Big Shampoo was the most expensive product I purchased at a cost of £6.95 which is the most expensive shampoo i've ever bought in my life.

My hair is what you'd call dull and limp. It's shoulder length, layered, blonde, and has a tendancy to get very greasy very quickly. If I wash my hair in the morning by the nightime it'll be looking greasy on top and then I either have to wash it again the next day or slap it back in a ponytail. This Big Shampoo claims to be a life affirming shampoo for more shine than you thought possible and turns dull, limp hair into shiny, silky hair with added volume. I was very sceptical I have to say but seem as it was my birthday and I was treating myself I thought i'd give it a go. After all, it couldn't possibly make my hair look any worse.

Firstly the shampoo doesn't come in a bottle like you'd have thought. It comes in a tub approximately 15cm in height and looks fairly posh. I don't claim to be a Lush expert but from what i've read i've gathered they handmake their products, they're all made from natural ingredients, and they are against animal testing.

The tub is at first quite hard to open. If you squeeze it slightly as you turn the lid it makes it much easier. After the first time it's fairly easy to open. Inside the shampoo looks more like frog spawn. It's a creamy white colour and the consistency is like watery jelly. The shampoo contains lots of raw sea salt which you can easily see, it feels lovely as you're rubbing it on your hair. Other ingredients are seaweed and lime juice. I can't say I can smell each of these ingredients seperately. In fact it's very hard to describe the smell but it's very nice, not overpowering, fresh, and long lasting.

The first time I used this shampoo I was a little disappointed that it didn't lather up as I was expecting. I rinsed the first lot out and put another small amount on (small amount is all you need each time) Well imagine my suprise when the second time it lathered up beautifully. It's the same everytime I use it. First wash no lather, second wash lots of lather. I have no idea why this happens but I usually wash my hair twice anyway so it's no big deal.

Unfortunately my hair goes very fly away if I don't use conditioner so at the same time as buying this I bought the Lush Retread Conditioner. I applied this after washing it twice and once dried my hair looked beautiful even if I do say so myself. Where my hair is usually limper than limp this time it actually looked like it had a bit of volume. OK so the volume wasn't huge but it definitely had more volume than normal. At the crown of my head the results were much more noticable. Instead of it lying flat and lifeless it was looking fresh, shiny and healthy.

I spent all day running my fingers through my hair and basking in the softness of it. My hair probably hadn't been this nice since I was a child. This shampoo was amazing. I loved it. But what would my hair look like after a night of sleeping on it?

Well the next morning imagine my shock when I looked in the mirror to find non-greasy hair. This was the first time in years i'd been able to wake up in the morning and not worry about the state of my hair. The volume was still there. The shine was still there. It still looked and smelt as good as if i'd just washed it. I was able to wear my hair down without the need to slap it back in a ponytail or wash it.

I've now used this shampoo about 8 times and every single time the results are fantastic. Although the tub is only a 330g one it does seem to last longer than I would've thought. I'm not even a quarter of the way down yet and i've used 16 lots of it (twice each wash) You only need to wash once with the shampoo but I would recommend you use a tiny amount first and wash it out, then apply a second slightly larger amount and wash. Like I mentioned previously the second lot seems to lather up and if you're a fan of lather like me then give it a try.

Yes it is expensive but I would say it's definitely worth it and i'm not looking forward to running out. As for hair suitability i'd say it's probably suitable for almost every type of hair out there although I would avoid it if you've already got thick hair. Ratings wise i'd have to give this a 5 star as I love it so much. I haven't the heart to dock a star for price and lack of lather for the first wash as they're only minor grumbles and ones I can easily live with. The shampoo does exactly what it says it should do and leaves your hair looking and feeling youthful again.

If you are interested in this or any other Lush products then have a look on their website which features hundreds upon hundreds of items. You'll also find a list of shops so you can check if there's one near you.
