Great, nourishing, moisturising, SLS free shampoo (i'm sensitive to SLS so quite happy to find this). My hair is straight so getting the coconut out wasn't a problem..fell out with a wide tooth comb.
Very happy overall, would possibly be happier if it was vegan.
ok...now who else has had loads of hair fall out when they use this shampoo? Yes, the smell is lovely (borderline divine), but for all those gals who base their beauty on their lovely, long shiny locks, beware!
I on the other hand have super thick hair, a short angled bob, that I must have my hairdresser thin out, so it was no skin off my...well you know what I mean. I even did a several "tests" (who would want to see lovely LUSH fall short). So one day I did Curly Wurly = handfull of hair, next day my Terax Miel = minimal hair loss. Waited a week, used Terax on day one, minimal hair loss, 2 days later, the LUSH, and once again loads of hair. I am so glad that this was a sample, and I didn't pay for the full size.
What was I thinking when I bought this? I bought this on a whim and learned two things that day. 1. However well meaning take the advice of a brand new (and straight haired) Lush SA with a grain of salt. 2. SLS and my hair don't do well together. After going CG, I finally decided to try being a modified CG and washing my hair with a shampoo once in a while. I hit up Lush thinking they might have milder shampoos and was talked into trying this one by a very nice, but possibly clueless SA. She recommended this and Retread and suggested that I first treat with Retread and then wash with Curly Wurly. She also said that I wouldn't need conditioner afterwards but I just laughed - my super dry hair needs conditioner after co-washing! First off, Curly Wurly is quite thick (so a little goes a long way, that's a good thing) and has bits of coconut in it. I don't understand the reasoning behind that AT ALL! It's a pita to wash it out and has no extra moisturizing benefits at all. When I rinsed it out, even soaking wet, I could tell it dried out my hair. I conditioned with Retread again and airdried as I usually do. Whoa! My hair looked dried out, stringy, and frizzy. Yuck.
Not a big fan, I am not sure how I like the way my hair feels next day. The product does not foam at all and is hard to work into your hair. Overall I do not feel like my hair is getting that clean. The coconut bits dont bother me and come out just fine with a wide tooth comb.
As much as I want to like this product I do not think I will be purchasing again.
I have this but I don't think that it's the best one that they do. I prefer Big, Veganese and Rehab. This does do a nice job on my thick curly hair but I am not too keen on all the cocnut bits in it and I found that it weighed my hair down a bit. It was shiny but it was drier too which isn't too good on curly hair. It is still a good shampoo just not my fave from Lush. I prob wouldn't buy it again but I will still use what I have left at some point!
This, plus American Cream, is my combo. Honestly, it doesn't "feel" that great to use - as in, I don't feel like I am embracing luxury while in the shower, but the results are great. Soft, mangeable hair. It sort of perks my curls/waves up. FWIW, I have wavy, borderline curly hair, but I can run a wide toothed comb through it so I can get the curly bits out.
I actually have naturally kind of wavy hair not really curly or frizzy. But my hair for awhile was really super dry and dull and I didnt know what to do. So I decided to try this to see if it could help. I can honestly say that I love this shampoo. It smells great, it leaves my hair shiny and soft but not greasy, and its just overall fun to use(at least for me it is). As far as lathering I didn't have a problem with that at all. I thought it lathered great.
I think this would be a godsend for people with really dry hair:D
I like this shampoo as it leaves my frizzy dry barnet moisturised when combined with American Dream conditioner.
In my tub there are no coconut bits and it doesn't lather at all. I suppose because they are made my hand that you may get variations in each one you buy. I hope all the coconut isn't at the bottom.
I'll be buying this again.
ps. it makes it really easy to get a comb through it afterwards.
Depending on your hair type, this product can be a nightmare. I have naturally kinky/ coarse hair and this "shampoo" left tiny white bits of solid coconut all enmeshed in my hair which was not easy to remove, despite the fact that I only used a small amount. I was unaware that the solids would not dissolve once you lather this product and spent 20 minutes trying to pick and tweezer the rest of the white stuff out after washing. I'm a big fan of lush products in general but this simply didn't work for my hair type.
I decided to try this product because I have long, curly hair that frizzes up easily. It did a really nice job of taming the frizzies and made my hair very soft with gorgeous curls. The smell of this product is so great that I wanted to use it as a body wash. I would definitely buy this again.
