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.
This is one of my favorite Lush solid shampoos! The smell is more of a natural coconut not like a suntan lotion smell or the suave coconut shampoo. It is more earthy and not fake smelling. I love the fake smelling coconut too but this is definetly more calm smelling and refreshing. It lasts forever which is awesome because it works sooo well!! It took me about 2 weeks for my hair to get used to it. The first couple of weeks my hair was fairly dry but I had been using lots of cones and decided to go cone free to see what my hair would be like... It was amazing... this made my hair sooo soft I couldn't believe it! I like to use this with Jungle conditioner since the shampoo is very moisturizing I wouldnt suggest using it with a heavy conditioner because it may make your hair weighed down. But with a lighter conditioner like Jungle it is so amazing! It also has a wonderful lather, I just rub the bar on the top of my head for a few seconds and thats all I need :)
I just discovered Lush and find their haircare to be amazing! I have been using this for over a week and noticed a difference in my hair. It lathers up really nice and smells delicious!! It is gentle on my highlighted hair. I've been using this with Retread conditioner & Marlyin hair treatment. It leaves my hair soft, shiney and frizz free. Love it and would re-purchase. continued >>
I use this shampoo every day on my short, fine and fairly greasy hair. It smells wonderful, is easy to use and leaves my hair shiny and manageable. Even my husband uses this and loves it. I find one bar lasts for months and months, even when using it every day.
