I use lush shampoo bars so was really excited to try this. I got this as a sample- thank god! its awful. I rubbed it over my hair, and if anything my hair immediately felt worse. I have fine hair which i wash daily- i probably shouldn't but i hate the greasy roots feeling when i don't. So, usually i put conditioner mostly on the ends and use a brush to comb it through. If i don't do that my hair is so tangly when i go to dry it. with this i rubbed it all over by hair, it seemed to have no effect, i tried to shave bits off with my fingernail and majke into a paste but that just imparted lumps throughout my hair- still felt really un-conditioned but when i dried it it felt greasy in places. Basically the worst of both worlds.
Can't say anymore... I feel like the shower water conditioned my hair more.
I use this all the time, which is probably bad because it has sodium laurel sulphate in it but I still love it. It smells very herbally but it's also sweet. It smells like fruity grass haha. I can use go 2 days without washing my hair when I use this because it soaks up the excess oil, unlike my other liquid conditioners. It lost a lippy because it's very troublesome to use. It crumbles when you try to cut it, so I gave up and started using it in the big block and it works better. It's very soft and easily melts onto your hair which is what I love about it. It's a bit pricey but you only need a bit every time you use it. My bar has lasted me quite a while.
Well,I dont like this conditioner,simly because it is for people who has plenty of time to play in the bathroom,I have 2 babies,so I have not so much time,I prefer quick liguid conditioner,thought the smell is nice,I will not repurchase. On the other side I really dont understand what is wrong with silicone hair shampoos and conditioners,to me there is nothing wrong,unless it works for your hair, silicone is not acid...As the other reviewer mentioned it is pulling my hair out,which is terrible for me as I am loosing lots of hair anyway due tu breastfeeding,so I really dont need an extra help to it.But I will try to use it up as many people suggesting to make it liquid.I must say my hair was soo smooth after I washed it out,no tangels,so I will give 3 lippes.What a pity it is is so hard to spread.
i loved the idea of a solid conditioner, but theres a reason why theres not many out there. first off, it was difficult to distribute in the hair. i would just take the bar and slather it all over my hair, but that became a problem as the bar got smaller. second of all, im used to that slippery soft tangle free feeling that conditioners impart, but this doesn't do that. im sure it does moisturize, but the actual feeling after i rinsed was kind of greasy and my hair was just tangled and hanging there. definitely not be repurchasing for an atrocious $10 per quarter oz. actually you know what it was like? taking a ripe avocado and smearing that all over your hair and rinsing it. bc thats what it essentially was. yes, im sure avocado oil is very moisturizing, but still...a little too primitive for me.
I am torn with this product. I like the results, but getting there is a bit of a challenge. Typically I can only use this conditioner on the weekend because it takes so long for me to get a good amount in my hair. I've worked a pretty good system by smooshing small pieces into my palm and then rubbing my palms together to smooth out the pieces into a paste. But this takes at least 5 minutes to complete. On the plus side it does not weigh my hair down and all, smells very nice and has no harmful chemicals. Perhaps if the product was softer, I would rate this a 5.
I LOVE this conditioner! I love the concept of a solid conditioner with no packaging and no preservatives. I also love the smell. And finally, it makes my dry, curly hair super soft and it feels moisturized. I take a couple of chunks, put them in a small pot, and add hot water to make a liquid conditioner. It's important you make Jungle into a liquid conditioner a couple of chunks at a time; because it has no preservatives, once it becomes liquid it has a much shorter shelf life, about 3 weeks, so don't waste your Jungle! I love this conditioner and strongly recommend to people with hair types like mine!
First, my hair is long (about the middle of my back), kind of fine, and there's lots of it. I don't dye it or anything, but it does tend to get oily fast.
Okay, I'd been wanting to try this for a while and received a sample with my last UK order. After reading various things, I decided to go with a How-To I found on the Lush forum (written by a Lush SA, I might add).
I took a small chunk of Jungle, put it in an empty face mask pot and added a small amount of hot water. I let it sit while I showered and when it came time for conditioner, I took the chunk out and mashed it up in my hands (which was much easier to do b/c it sat in hot water) until it became a paste. I ran it through my hair & rinsed. At first, I didn't think much of it. However, once my hair dried a bit and I detangled it, I was shocked to find that my hair was tangle-less and smelled AMAZING. Thus, I will be purchasing this conditioner.
Minus one lippie because I can't just USE it - it's a process.
So I tried this after I made a mess of my hair with BIG. I first tried rubbing it on my hair, and that just pulled out more hair. So then I tried to smush it into a paste type thing. It kind of worked, and then it just crumbled and got all greasy and and gross and very unconditioning. I had to shampoo again to get the gunk out of it. I retreated to my Aussie Moist, which rode in as the glorious, haloed calvary and saved the wreck that was my hair.
I cannot stand the smell of this. I wanted to. I literally made me gag. It seems really good in theory, what with the avocados and bananas. But wow. Not what I'm looking for first thing in the morning.
i'm not a fan of this for my hair. but, it works wonders for my daughter's hair. she has very thick, wavey hair and this conditioner smooths her hair and makes combing a breeze. i'm not too crazy about the smell and it does feel waxy when applying. luckily, it rinses clean and the smell goes away.
