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?!
