I love Lush products! In fact I would even repurchase some things from Lush that are overpriced yet only give satisfactory results just because I am loyal to Lush!

My scalp is I think normal. Not super greasy but my hair gets greasy after a day of getting my hair washed. Which I think is why it is a mistake that I purchased Jumping Juniper.

Jumping Juniper is super clarifying and can really dry your scalp. I think this product is really good if ONLY you have super greasy scalps. I have normal scalp and used this product and it made my scalp dry and flake! And for the scent, I bought Jumping Juniper for its smell and I know that Lush is well known because of its scent and I expected for this product's scent to linger on my hair but it didn't have that staying power that I have expected.

I have a very oily hair and during the first week this shampoo worked very well. After this, my hair started to get oily again. I love the Lush philosophy about natural ingredients, but this shampoo did not work for me.

I'm torn with this product. I had high hopes, since most other Lush products I've tried do what they say. This bar cleans hair really well- but maybe too well. My hair feels squeaky clean, which some may like but I almost feel like it strips my hair too much. Then I'll wake up the next day and my roots aren't super clean, as if my roots have produced more oil to compensate for the stripping.
The fact that it's a bar is a pain- you need to buy a container for it, and it's trickier to use.

My hair is a mess. I have limp dry hair but my roots will get greasy if I don't wash my hair daily. I use WEN and now I can go two days without washing my hair but it still can get greasy at the roots. I was at a Lush store about a month ago and one of the sales associates recommended this shampoo bar to me. I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised how well this works for me. Do not be afraid of shampoo bars like I was. They are easy to use and they last forever. This would be great to travel with because it's so portable. The Jumping Juniper smells like citrus, it's very clean smelling. It cleaned my hair but didn't strip it like other deep cleaning shampoos can. It lathers like crazy so you don't need much. I just got my hair wet, rubbed the bar across the top of my head and few times and then worked the lather throughout my hair. I used my WEN after and I noticed my hair felt cleaner and was easier to style because it wasn't as weighed down as usual. I want to try other shampoo bars now.

I have very greasy hair, always have and unfortunately my hair had a shelf life of 12 hours.. I'd spent ridiculous amounts of money on salon shampoos "made" for oily scalps like mine. They would only make my hair clean for less then 12 hours. After that, it was oil city.

I'm really glad I found jumping juniper. It is a clarifying shampoo so I use it in every SECOND wash.. I think that's why so many of you are mentioning that it dries out your scalp,it clarifies.. but it is a very strong clarifying shampoo at that. JJ prevents build up and it rids my hair of any excess oil or residue from other products. It lathers up nicely and I love the smell.

I do also like the idea of a shampoo bar.. it takes up less space in my bathroom and it lasts a very long time.

I have extremely greasy hair!! To the point where I sometimes have to wash my hair twice a day to keep it at bay. When I heard some good reviews about Jumping Juniper, I rushed to Lush to buy it. At around £5 a bar, for what the assistant said would be 80 washes, the price seemed amazing!

I got this bar home, and the first wash was great! It left my hair shiny and clean with a light feel, however it did take a while to lather up. On the second day, my hair was a tiny bit greasy, but not as greasy as usual- so I was happy! I used some of the No Drought Lush dry shampoo, which I was told would help the grease, but it didn't really make much difference. On the third day, when I came to wash my hair with it again, I could feel my scalp starting to itch. When I dried my hair this time, I noticed that my whole scalp was flaking with dandruff and I had to go to work with my hair in a state!!

I'm going to have to stop using this bar and hope that I can finally find a solution to my oily hair that doesn't dry my scalp out!

I had mixed reactions to this solid shampoo bar. I have dry hair and split ends, but need something that can still clean my hair well, without stripping it. This will clean your hair super well. It's definitely for those with normal to oily hair. I like the fact that compared to other solid shampoos I've experimented with it doesn't leave that waxy feel in your hair. I love the smell of lavender, but I it's just not strong enough with this bar. The smell winds up being a bit of a musty juniper-not the best scent to have in your hair. I will say though that if this works for you, it will last you a LONG time. I tried it for about a couple weeks and it looked practically pristine at the end of that.

Pros: .Does exactly what it says, I.e. remove the grease from your hair and makes it feel really clean . Hair has more shine to it . Only need to wash hair every five days instead of every other day . Lasts ages- I've had my puck for over three months, and I can still get another two months out of it quite easily . Lathers amazingly . Vegan . Environmentally friendly and not tested on animals Cons: . Can be *too* effective at cleaning, causing a dry scalp if you use too much or too often . You do need to condition afterwards . The beautiful smell doesn't last once you've rinsed Would buy again! :D

-Lathers well.
-Smells delicious, like lavender and lemon. Not overpowering. Very natural.
-Makes my hair very, very shiny. Almost artificially shiny, actually….like a doll’s hair. Kind of weird but very satisfying.
-Makes hair squeak while washing the product out. Definitely feels clean.
-Decent price for a product that will last a while.

-Smell doesn’t last once my hair is dried.
-Have to put this in a container or in a place where it won’t get wet and dissolve in the shower.

Would repurchase. I feel good about using something natural that smells great and gets my hair super clean. The shininess is great and it doesn’t take much product to lather up.

This is my first experience with a bar shampoo and I am very impressed! I think the bar format is perfect for travel since you don't have to worry about the liquid spilling in your makeup case. This lathers perfectly and cleans well. It was $10, but the bar will last awhile. I use 3-4 swipes on my damp shoulder-length hair. There's a light scent that doesn't linger after I've rinsed it out. I'd buy this again!
