I had heard lots about solid shampoo, but I had never tried it until my mum bought me this one from Lush. I’ll be honest and say I was a little sceptical before testing this, but I was so impressed by the results that I thought I would dedicate a blog post to it. Here’s how I got on washing my locks with the Lush Angel Hair Shampoo Bar…
First impressions of Lush Shampoo Bar
The first thing you’ll probably notice about this block of shampoo is how bloody cute it is! It’s pink and has a little flower on it – what’s not to love? When my mum was in store, she was also advised to purchase this little Cork Pot to safely store the product when it’s wet from the shower. I’d fully recommend it as it’s much better than having it sitting out on the edge of your tub and perfect for popping in your bag for use at the gym or on holiday!
My expectations of Lush Shampoo Bar
As I previously mentioned, I didn’t have incredibly high expectations for the product before I used it. I’m not really as obsessed with Lush as everyone else seems to be and the strong scent that wafts from the doors of the high street shops doesn’t really lure me in. Also, as a big fan of a shampoo that lathers up and gives my hair a good clean, I was worried that this tiny bar wasn’t up for the job.
The results of Lush Shampoo Bar
I’m pleased to say that I stand corrected – this small block of shampoo created a good lather to leave my hair feeling squeaky clean! It does feel odd rubbing your head with a round block, but I was very impressed by the suds it formed and also rather surprised by how my hair felt afterwards. Once dry, my hair was clean and soft rather than coated and weighed down, which is how it can feel with some shampoos. However, I have to admit that it didn’t seem as glossy as it does when I use my normal liquid shampoo from L’Oréal.
The benefits of Lush Shampoo Bar
Although I’m not necessarily converted to using solid shampoo all of the time, I do think it has some big benefits. Firstly, it is very handy for travelling – no more fear of a liquid spilling in your case! Another really good upside to using it is cutting plastic waste as with shampoos, conditioners and shower gels the bathroom can feel like an endless cycle of plastic bottles (even if they do get recycled).
What do you think? Would you try a solid shampoo?
