Lush Big Sea Salt Shampoo

I'll admit that I totally got sucked into the little hype that surrounds this product.  The idea of a shampoo which contains sea salt to give your hair volume was something that really intrigued me, but when I mentioned on Twitter that I'd bought it and Bess O asked me to share my thoughts I was a little daunted.  Reviewing a shampoo is pretty alien to me, and in all honesty I wasn't really expecting miracles.  So what on earth was I meant to report back to her?!

Let me start by saying that this is, without a doubt, my favourite shampoo...of all time.  I'm not one that particularly enjoys washing my hair but this product has revolutionised my showering experience.  The texture of it is a bit of a fun novelty; in the shop (I guess where it's been left open all day) it looked pretty solid, almost like a scrub.  Underneath this it's the gloopy mixture you see above.  Mine stays in this state all the time, I'm assuming because the air doesn't really get to it.  Anyway, it's gloopy with pretty substantial lumps of salt and lathers really nicely.  Which surprised me, as I didn't really expect much lathering.  And don't worry, the salty bits don't hurt at all.

So that's the texture sorted.  Besides that, my reasons for loving this shampoo are listed on the lid - "Sea salt shampoo to give your hair lift and volume, make it easy to get a comb through and smell great for hours."  I'll admit that having got used to the product I don't always see the lift and volume, but after the first wash I definitely noticed the difference.  Same goes for the smell, which is reminiscent of their American Cream conditioner, thanks to the addition of coconut and vanilla.  Yum.

Now this stuff is a little pricey, at £11.25, but is it ok to admit that I don't wash my hair all that often so this is going to last a while?  In all honesty, I'm so impressed that I think I'd repurchase even if it didn't last all that long!

  1. I love this product! Actually, on second though, love everything Lush makes. All of their products are a real experience :) Their bath bombs are a particular favorite of mine

    1. I love the smell of Lush, but I always find it a bit daunting going in there. There are a few bath melts and soaps that I know I like, but I'm always unsure whether to shell out on something that I might not like! No idea why though, because I happily waste money in Boots instead! x

  2. I love this product too, I got a sample and fell in love! Out of interest, how often do you wash your hair? I do mine every other day because it gets really greasy otherwise, I envy those who can leave theirs longer! x

    1. I used to have to wash it every day, but thanks to dry shampoo I no longer have that problem! In the last 8 months or so I've made a real effort to leave my hair longer between washes, and the realisation that I have oily hair and buying shampoos for this really helped. In all honesty, I think I'm probably washing my hair more often using this product...probably 2-3 a week x

    1. I had their Trichomania before, and although it smelled lovely, a solid shampoo really didn't work well for me! x

  4. I've tried sea salt sprays before but never shampoos! I might have to give this a go, you can never have too much volume right?

  5. I keep looking at this and it sounds lovely, I'm just worried it'll dry my hair out? Have you had that problem at all? :)
