I received a sample of Curly Wurly this past week. I had read the reviews on here so I was a little skeptical, but I thought I'd give it a go anyways. Curly Wurly comes in a black Lush container. Its a very thick, chunky kind of texture because it does have coconut shredding in it which made it all the more difficult to apply to my hair, not to mention when I tried to lather it into my strands. I tried to rub it in my hands first then apply it to my hair, but it didn't seem to make that much of a difference. I finally was able to distribute it all over my hair. After washing, I was able to get much of the coconut out of my hair, but later as I brushed my hair I noticed a few coconut pieces were falling out. It did, however, make my hair soft and smelling delicious.
An associate at Lush mentioned that Lush removed the coconut from Curly Wurly a while back, but that the costumers found it less effective so they decided to add it back in. She also told me that Curly Wurly is better for those who blow dry their hair after since the coconut pieces will fall out as you brush.
I'm not sure if I would purchase this product. Maybe? I don't know.I'm still deciding.
My hair has been really awful for the past 2 years, It's dry and it won't curl in the same way it used to. After one use my hair looks incredible! I have my soft spiral curls back! I'm so pleased I can finally leave my hair natural and not have to braid it or hide it away in a bun. It's not the cheapest of shampoo's but how can I refuse after seeing my hair back to the way it should be?
So around this time last year I went into a lush for the first time. I have pretty curly hair, not afro curly but Merida curly if she used product in her hair. So as any Lush sales person would do I was eminently approached. The sales woman told me to try curly wurly and I was a little scared to buy due to the very expensive price so she gave me a sample (I love that this store does that). It was small but I only wash my hair every other day and use a small amount so it lasted me a few weeks. Everyone was complimenting me on how good my hair smelt and I really liked how it made my hair feel. So after a few other products I tried I decided to.go back to Lush and take the plunge. I do really like this shampoo it makes my hair feel nice unlike other shampoos that make it feel very stripped. I do not have a problem with the coconut pieces because I comb my hair while I shower(once again I don't have super tight curls) so if you are having a problem with that I hope that advise helps you!
My husband and I have straight hair, but do to family genetics we were given two boys with curly ringlets. Their hair is so beautiful we can't bring ourselves to cut it, but their hair was dry, frizzy and dull. Well this amazing lush product fixed that right up. Their curls have never been so bouncy shiny and healthy. It's amazing the change this shampoo did for their hair! Love it!
I loveeee this shampoo. After reading reviews on here, I thought I'd made a big mistake but its made my hair feel amazing! Personally I soak my hair with water in the shower/ bath and grab about a 10p size, I mix it with water in my hands until it gets creamy and lathers slightly. I then work it into my soaking wet hair and it lathers well, and then I work it down to my ends. The coconut bits do end up falling on my shoulders etc but I just rub them into my body which makes my skin soft and smell yummy! Rinsing it out I have no problems, and just rinse the shower when I'm done. I never need conditioner with this and no products to tame my frizz after. I only use heat protection spray and never blow dry my hair and my hair smells delicious afterwards! It defines my curls with a tousled wave with 0 frizz/ puffiness. The price seems steep but it lasts for sooooo long! Would definitely buy again!
Ok, my review on this. I have long wavy hair that gets frizzy in the hot, humid, rainy weather. I love the way it tames the frizz and tames my waves.
When i first used it, I did find that this shampoo tangles my hair if I just scrub it in like normal shampoos. It also dried the ends. It also does not lather well in harder water (in the hotels that I stayed at) but at home it is better.
To prevent tangling, I brush my hair before showering. I also find that it is easier to work in if first I liquefy in my hands, be sure that my hair is extra wet and massage it in with my finger tips to prevent tangling. I use a small chunk on my roots and a small chunk on the ends. I finish with American Creme conditioner. When done, I do still have some small chucks of coconut left in my hair, but they brush right out. The above process seemed to improve the dry end issue.
Finally, it seems that my hair gets oily faster when using this product, I am a daily washer. I think that my hair needs to adjust to the shampoo over time.
Overall, I like this shampoo, love the smell.....
The smell of this product is fine.
The first time i used it i got all these chunks in my hair, and thought perhaps I needed to emulsify it through my hands first. It was near impossible to work through my hair! Second time i used it, i lathered it right up in my hands, but still found all these chunks that didn't break down! Still hard to work through the hair!
Then saw all these white chunks floating around in the bath?? That's when i read the ingredients list and realised they were bits of desiccated coconut!
I was picking out bits of coconut for days later! My scalp felt dirty too and somewhat scabbed up.
This is the only Lush product i have used that I didn't like! So disappointed, i really wanted this product to work, i love Lush and what they stand for.
A little about my hair: dry scalp, fairly dry ends, long, thick, recently colored, easy tangled.
I used a sample of Curly Wurly from a lovely saleswoman at Lush. I followed her directions to emulsify the product in my hand with water but it only enough product for one to two uses on my scalp alone. This is fine for a sample amount but if I were judging the size/price of the regular bottle, I would expect more. It smells good but the scent doesn't last. It didn't weigh down my hair or irritate my scalp. It was just underwhelming. I wouldn't purchase the (overpriced) full size product.
The reason that this products receives a four instead of a five is because of the coconut chunks. Other than that, I LOVE this shampoo. I have wavy/more to curly dry hair and this helps to condition it and make it much less frizzy. It fact, after a months' use, my hair definitely became much healthier. I like how my hair is soft and shiny at the end of the day. I'm not to crazy about the smell, but it's ok. The coconut chunks have no effects whatsover and even thoroughly wash my hair some bits are still stuck in my hair, so i usually use this shampoo at night or on weekends. It does leave your hair feeling extra squeky/dry, but just air dry it or use a hair serum and it will feel moisturized.
One trick to get it to lather well is to make sure your hair is really wet, then scoop a dime sized worth into your palm and mash it with some water. Rub it into a section of you head and repeat through other sections. Then massage it all thoroughly, it should be bubbly by now. If not, just wet your hair a little bit more while massaging.
First of all, I am a Lush product junkie. This was my first Lush product after being recommended to try by a friend who swore by it. I love all things coconut, too, so that was enough to make me want to buy it alone. The scent is so heavenly and amazing and it makes me so happy. The scent lingers all day and I always am told how good my hair smells!
I have wavy hair, naturally, but it gets fluffy and frizzy if I just let it air dry without any product (so of course I never do.) This thick shampoo is a wonder for my hair. I use it about once or twice a week because it is expensive. It REALLY tames my mane and visibly makes my hair look less of a fluffy problem. It is not really hard to lather. I take a little scoop, mash it in my hands with a little water and really work it in my hair. I have never had any problem with any of the coconut pulp! It always washes right out and down the drain. TIP: for those who do find they are left with coconut pulp in their hair, after shampooing with Curly Wurly, and conditioning, brush your hair in the shower! It is a great solution to this, as well as detangling your hair!
I just love love lov Curly Wurly.
