Many of you know that I am a Lush junkie. Lush is a company that specializes in natural and handmade cosmetics such as soaps and bath products. My exposure to the brand has not been long, but I have been fascinated by its products. I have always wanted to try out their Solid shampoo (aka shampoo bar), but never really had the chance until recently when I received a generous sample of the Squeaky Green Solid Shampoo ($7.95) with my online order.
The product contains an extremely strong scent that is actually a bit noxious to my nose. It literally smells like deodorant mixed with laundry detergent, which is not very pleasant to me. I would love to have my closet smells like this but definitely not my hair. It was a bit wary about this at first, but the heavy fragrance quickly dissolved in the shower.
It lathers very well and is really refreshing for my oily hair. It is great at removing residues and oil and allows me to wash my hair less frequently. Each full size bar lasts between 60 – 80 washes, which is a good value considering the price tag. Unfortunately, this could be a bit harsh for dry and sensitive hair. If this is too strong of a daily use for you, try this as an occasional deep cleansing treatment. Your hair will thank you for making it smooth and shiny. But please be careful with it because the bar is quite fragile and easy to break apart. The little noodles can stuck in your hair and in the tub.
