Lush Big Shampoo Review





I recently read a review about Lush's Big Shampoo and was intrigued. How could a shampoo be made of salt?! Would it really lather up? I’d heard it was good for giving volume to the hair so I made my way to Lush pronto. I’d planned on buying it straight off, but as it’s fairly pricey at £9.60 for 330g, I asked for a sample so I could check I liked it first. I was given a very generous portion in a little pot (and got to avoid the enormous queues) and hurried back home to try it.

Made of 50% salt, it also contains lemon and lime juice, a seaweed infusion and coconut oil to soften the hair. All these ingredients meant it smelled yummy! It felt odd scooping up a dollop of salt from a tub and massaging it into my hair, but it dissolved quickly and lathered up better than any other shampoo I've ever used. Only a small amount was needed so I can see the full sized tub lasting a long time.

I think this is amazing as a clarifying shampoo. I was beginning to find my hair felt weighed down and greasy shortly after washing so I was in need of a shampoo that got rid of all the gunky residue in my hair. This removed all traces of product build-up and left my hair squeaky clean after rinsing, something I've not experienced in a long time.


To really test this product out, I didn't apply any of my usual volumising products after washing and left my hair to dry naturally, usually a formula for incredibly flat, limp hair. However I was impressed to find my hair had body, thickness and shine. Everything I've ever wanted!

Lush's Big gives softness, shine and volume. What more could a girl want from a shampoo?!

  4. Great review lovely. The reason it makes your hair so soft and shiny is because the salt softens the water. It's a very special product, and I'm so glad you like it!

  7. Oh what a great review. I'll definitely try this as I have very fine hair myself and find volumising shampoos wear off so quickly.

  9. Wow this sounds pretty good. I didn't realise you can go into Lush and ask for samples. Next time I'm in town I'm definitely going to do just that! xx

  10. Glad that it worked for you! Im just scared that the salt content will dry out my thin, bleached hair more than it already is! However, thanks for mentioning it could be used as a clarifying shampoo! Im like product buildup galore! x

  18. This is one of my fave shampoos of all time but my hair is so so damaged after dyeing it and extensions that its making it too dry to use daily. Now i use it every 2nd or 3rd time!
