I was very skeptical about using this product as iv never used a solid shampoo before. I lathered it up on my ends and rubbed the bar over my head. Rinsed out and used my garnier nutrioil treatment as my normal conditioner and my hair felt amazing. The coconut cream really moisturised my hair and it wasnt greasy at all !.
I was in heaven about LUSh... for 1 week :(
The names are cute, the products look adorable... but they are bad for my skin/hair.
Trichomania has a lovely cocossmell, that doesnot smell artificial, and when soaping it into your hair, it feels super creamy. But..unfortunately..after washing it out my hair feels very dry.
I tried it on my upper arm too, and it dried out my skin too.
I think they put a lot of real soap into this shampoo bar, which makes it very drying. Too bad, because this is supposed to be a moisturizing and conditioning shampoo!
Except for the Skin Sin bodylotion, which smells nice and is not irritating, no more LUSH for me!
If you want to buy a cute present for anyone, or decorate your house, LUSH is a goof place to go, but don't expect any good for your skin/hair!
I have to admit to being an incredible snob. The thought of Lush products always brought a shudder of disgust at the whole "hippy" appeal of the whole enterprise. However... I walked into their store on a hot hot afternoon, after soaking in sunshine and being on a boat in the bay and it just FIT. Suddenly, the repulsive granola-grunginess of it all disappeared and I walked around the store in a daze, inhaling bottle contents and rubbing all these amazing creams in my skin. I left with a much lighter wallet (pretty funny actually how expensive it can be to purchase a chunk of what looks like wax for 15 dollars...) and a basket-full of products. This shampoo was one of them. I have to say that I am absolutely smitten with its smell, which is a very fresh non-synthetic coconut. I use it on my body and as shaving cream. It is so good, at the end of my shower, I will rub some more on my hands just so they keep that smell on them. As for the quality of this shampoo, the jury is still out. I have curly coarse hair, and use a fair amount of products. This shampoo definitely stripped everything off and left me with a dreaded squeeky (read mass of tangled hair) head. I did use the Jungle conditioner AND coolawlin conditioner afterwards to mitigate the dryness. I think a good clarifying shampoo once a week is ok, so I plan on using it for that purpose, and for its yummy smell. Do I think Lush products are superior to many many often cheaper products out on the market? No. Would I repurchase based on incredible scent and "fun factor" of product marketing? Maybe, just maybe.
LUSH's "Trichomania" is very impressive considering it's size and form, and is much more than meets the eye (which seems to be the case with many of LUSH's products). "Trichomania" isn't just a good shampoo, it's a unique shampoo which does an excellent job at answering to the needs of frizzy, dry and flyaway curly hair. My "little secret" is that I have very bad dandruff due to a very dry scalp. I have found many shampoos over the years that I loved, but couldn't use becuase they didn't provide enough moisture to my hair and scalp which resulted in dandruff. Anti-dandruff shampoos got rid of my dandruff, but left my hair limp and lifeless. "Trichomania" is a very rich shampoo - it lathers quickly, thickly and heavily, providing a good deal of moisture to dry hair and a dry scalp. "Trichomania" is the first non anti-dandruff shampoo I have used which doesn't prompt dandruff, and has great qualities for my dry, curly hair. I find that my hair is more manageable and looks much more animated, the natural coconut scent is lovely and the bar format is surprisingly easy to use. Unique products are fun to use and "Trichomania" is simple, fun, uncomplicated, unique and works well.
I like the smell of this, but I cant use it if I'm going anywhere. It leaves my hair heavy and it gets oily within hours. It's too bad, the smell and lather is great. (I have oily wavy fine hair to my shoulders). Will NOT be buying again.
I got a sample of this, and I'll be purchasing the full size bar.
It's both cleansing and rich, my scalp is oily and I have fine, oily, chemically processed hair. The hair's left squeaky clean but it did nothing for my oily scalp.
I find this goes a LONG way, and does remove light styling product. My partner swears it removes heavier men's products like waxes.
It's very rich and somehow makes whatever conditioner you're using penetrate your hair deeper, so I definitely wouldn't recommend using it every day.
Without doubt the best shampoo I have ever tried - and I have truly tried a lot of them, believe me! I have very long, curly, thick hair and this makes it so soft and smooth and... well... happy! It smells amazing and lasts forever. Plus, it's very economical as even I only ever use a fingerful. It's very rich, so I wouldn't recommend using it every day, but that's the only criticism I can think of. When I tried this, I couldn't believe how rubbish other shampoos seemed by comparison.
i bought this because it says it's moisturizing and smells nice. it takes a lot to lather in my hair (and my hair is only shoulder length) and does not moisturize at all, and it makes my scalp dry too.
I just tried this out, and it's nice stuff. I bought a small bar, and I can tell it'll last a while -- a little goes a really long well. I love the scent, it's coconut-y without being sweet or making my hair smell like a tanning salon. It cleanses really, really well, so I did need conditioner afterward, but I have thick, coarse hair, so I always need conditioner. I've used it twice, and my hair is really shiny - shinier and smoother than it's been in a while. Good stuff! The only reason I rated it 3 is that it's not practical -- I couldn't travel with it because I'm sure it would be too messy, and there's no real place for me to put this while it dries. I tried using a soap dish, but it didn't dry all the way, so this time I just set it on the paper it came wrapped in. It dried and didn't get gunky, but it's not very attractive sitting on my shower ledge. EDIT: I love this now. A little goes a very long way, it smells great and it cleans my hair really well without drying it out. A great product.
Lush recommends this for dry hair, but it left my hair bone dry and full of knots. The scent is nice, though, so I might recommend it to a friend with oilier hair. I'm glad I got it as a sample, I definitely will not be purchasing this bar.
