Review of LUSH snake oil massage bar by violet_avalon
I love this product!
First of all, I must admit that I have only used this sporadically so I haven't evaluated whether the continued use has the desired effect on the scalp. I do suffer from itchy scalp and dandruff from time to time and when I used this it provided relief to these conditions afterwards.
The bar has a really strong smell, very herbal and medicinal, and it can be unpleasant if you're sensitive to smells. I cut my bar in half for a more practical use. During the Summer I find that it's very easy to warm the bar in your hands, rub it a bit in your fingers and palms and then apply that ointment to your scalp, massaging it a bit.
I usually leave the product for a couple of hours - I couldn't sleep with it on my scalp because the smell is too intense. Then I wash my hair with Seanik (a shampoo that I find dries my hair too much normally, but works wonders this way). I wash it twice and it's really important to wash the snake oil away, otherwise the hair gets greasy and horrible. Afterwards I use a bit of Jungle and the result is amazing, shiny and bouncy hair. It feels healthy and light. And it's really the Snake Oil that makes the difference because I use the other products regularly without the same results.
I'll definitely buy again, as a treat for my hair and scalp.
