I recently ran out of both my shampoo and conditioner at the exact same time. I pretty much stick to Lush shampoo and conditioner products, as I have found they smell amazing, work well, have lasting effects and do not leave residue on my hair. I have thick hair, lots of it, which tends to get oily.
It is now summertime, and I have a pool. Thus, my hair has been pretty limp and I wanted a really clarifying shampoo. I picked up my usual I Love Juicy (my favorite Lush shampoo and it leaves your hair squeaky clean and smelling like fruit without getting all Herbal Essences up in there). I also replaced my American Cream conditioner, as I pretty mush refuse to use any other conditioner at this point, as the amazing smell and proficiency of American Cream will never be beat. These two will continue to be my traditional everyday-use shampoo-conditioner combo. However, it is quite fun and healthy to change it up!
I saw this black potted Big Shampoo on the lush website, and was immediately attracted as it is made of sea-salt, coconut, and lemon. Smells really amazing. Its main tricks are adding body and volume to hair, and adding shine! I am into this for the summer.
I brought this home, and immediately wanted to try it, as I have been out of shampoo for three days and my hair felt not great. First of all, one thing you need to know about Big Shampoo is that is is literally filled with chunks of sea salt. I was like “… How..?” I took a bit into my hand and added some water and lathered it up a bit before applying it into my hair, and was startled to realize that it lathers up like CRAY and a little goes a long way. The sea salt dissolves and it felt AMAZING massaged into my scalp.
Now my hair just feels amazing. So clean and oil free. Smells like my American Cream Lush conditioner. I feel like it will have some beachy texture and volume in the morning.
