I’ve wanted to try the Lush Big shampoo for a long time, because I’ve always thought I’ve had quite thin and limp hair. This is a sea salt based shampoo, and if you know anything about texturising sprays then you’ll know that if you want volume, you want to try some sea salt spray or treatment. Having said this, this also made me feel a tad skeptical about this shampoo because I correlate sea salt as something that can be quite drying.
Firstly, the smell of this is divine. I think I’m attracted to it so much because it is fragranced with Neroli, which is one of my favourite scents. It definitely lingers, even through whatever conditioner you use, and even better you can smell it on your hands afterwards. Although I love how strong the scent is, I understand that this could be a turn off if you’re not a fan of strongly perfumed things. I’m okay with this because I know that coming from Lush, the ingredients are all natural and not tested on animals.
The texture of this isn’t something that I didn’t expect. You get some really large chunks of sea salt in the shampoo itself, and I don’t know why I didn’t expect that. It does feel really weird when you massage it into your scalp, but it does froth up and you can feel the volume whilst you shampoo your hair.
After you get out the shower and do your hair as you normally would, I have to admit I do see the difference. It feels pretty volumised and thicker, but I don’t know how much that is just my head telling me it’s working. You can definitely still smell the scent through blow drying and straightening, so I would probably consider re-purchasing just for the scent.
Have you tried this shampoo? If so, what are your thoughts? Or are there any other Lush haircare products that you would recommend? Let me know in the comments!
