This looks like a strand on just lush shampoo bars in general but since the one pictured is the cinnamon I'll mention both! I am obsessed with their bars! I honestly don't think I can go back to regular shampoos! They bars last a good long while, they suds up like CRAZY, they smell amazing, they ARE amazing! They discontinued my fav bar :( the ultimate shine but my husband uses the cinnamon because it encourages hair growth, occasionally I'll borrow his and I really adore It! It makes my hair light and feel clean and smell great!

I've been through several of these bars as a regular backpacker:
Seanik (gorgeous light salt floral scent, odd seaweed chunks are easy enough to pick out)
New! (Delish cinnamon scent, definitely saw reduction in hair falling out - I usually comb enough hairs out of my bushy mop during bi-weekly hair washes to make Cousin Itt cower in fright, with a few uses of this, maybe 5 hairs a wash!)
Squeaky Green (bits of herbs in my hair every wash, delegated it to washing my laundry, annoyingly still left bits of herbs on my clothes enticing one fellow backpacker into thinking I had weed. No)
Godiva (Not really conditioning enough as a 2-in1 for dry hair like mine, but definitely more moisturising than the regular ones, delightful sexy jasmine scent)
Ultimate Shine (light scent, probably better for less dry hair types)
Jumping Juniper (this was my fave during my greasy head teen years! Too drying for me now though)
Montalbano (yummy citrus scent, the new less SLS formula ones are definitely less drying on the scalp)
Honey I Washed (ditto Montalbano, but honey scented. This and Monty and probably my favourite ones now)
Irrestistable Bliss (discontinued - had a gorgeous floral scent, bright pink bar and my very first one, wish they'd bring it back with a less sulfate formula)
Dr Peppermint (discontinued - tingly goodness, ditto Irrestistable Bliss, bring it baaack)
Also have Braziliant ready to try on my next trip, and will probably get Copperhead too someday and heck, maybe Lullabye and Jason and the Argan Oil too...

One lippie off because some of these can be dryinggg on the scalp, and can cause dandruff if I let my scalp get too used to them. So I change it up with a regular shampoo (Organic Care moisture something, Aussies get on that, its the beige bottle at Woolies/Coles etc, its cheap and almost a dupe for Moogoo, with a better lather. I also use Mane n Tail, Moogoo and Lush's Curly Wurly if I have it) so I feel they lather a little too much - although that means a little goes a long way so I shouldnt complain.

TRICK to drying them out, dont get them suoer wet in the shower, if you have the tin or a regular soap travel thingo, let them dry out on that for a little while and don't put the bar in the container if it's very wet, it will turn to goo and you will get less use out of it. If you let it dry out, they last ages.

I'm on vacation and chanced upon a Lush store.
I'm so happy!
These shampoo bars and the conditioner I bought will SAVE my travel experiences because security took my shampoo.
They lather BETTER than my favorite shampoo, don't build up, leave my hair soft, contain no cones or heavy conditioning agents, rinse out completely, and keep my skin clean.
I'm hooked. Too bad Lush doesn't retail in common stores because this means I have to find a store or buy online.
I find fewer hairs in my brush with the shampoo bars and none of that nasty silicone residue! For those wary about bar soap for hair: it's not really soap. It's a highly concentrated ACTUAL shampoo. It's amazing and I know you'll love it! You won't need as much per use and your hair will be nice and clean. There are tons of different bars which correspond to your hair needs so just ask the sales person or read the catalogue.
I'm a shampoo MANIAC so when I say this changed my shower experience, you can believe it. Presently, I have the lemon clarifier and "big" bar which is blue, designed to add volume.
I want to add that you don't have to divorce yourself from all your favorite conditioners or leave-ins to use these soaps. I still have my Pantene detangler, Overnight Miracle, and some argan oils. But Lush thoroughly washes them out, leaving my hair very clean. I also keep my favorite skin cream--simple Vaseline--to use at night over their lotion. Combine whatever you want; the soap bars and lotions are great supplements.

I've been a big fan of these shampoo bars for about four years now. I usually go for NEW (lovely cinnamon-y scent) but have also tried Soak'n'Float (does the job) and Jumping Juniper (cleans my hair squeaky-clean). The upsides are simple: the bars are easy to use, they lather nicely, and are very convenient for travel. They can also be pretty gentle on the scalp, though during wintertime I found NEW fairly drying.

The usual LUSH downsides apply to some of their solid shampoos, like the presence of fragrances that may be too overpowering for some people's tastes. The price can seem too high until you realize that one bar will last you about 60 washes, probably more. Another con for some people is the presence of a sulfate, even though the product is mostly natural otherwise.

I love LUSH! Although I am a noob (have honey I wash my hair & Brazilliant for shampoos w jungle & the big conditioner as conditioners that's my collection oh & tins for all! Coz I'm retentive like that). These pucks are amazing! I was a little surprised go see them shrink as much as they did from a few washing but I will get more coz I love how they make my hair feel. One wash w a Lush shampoo bar cleans my hair better than what I was doing 5x washing w a cheap DS shampoo. My hair feels stronger & seems to air dry faster. These smell amazing! They live in their little tins but upside down in my shower to keep from sticking. Would make an awesome gift (make sure u buy a tin w it) for any world traveler I'm so done with my DS shampoos I will use a clarifying one maybe one a month. With Lush I can get away w washing my hair twice a week. And no longer is shampooing a long involved process of drudgery! Yay! I'm sold!!

This is a review for the shampoo bars in general. I was snobby at first, Ive always used salon brand shampoo and I would never give a second thought about using a solid shampoo from Lush. I thought they wouldn't work, or mess my hair up, I thought it was kind of hippie like or just usable for camping(which if I did go camping, I would sleep in a cabin or an RV! Not traditional camping like being completely in nature). I gave the shampoo bars a chance and Im very impressed, very happy with these.

My hair profile: Very long(almost hip length), straight, thick(lots of hair and thick in diameter), lightly colored, oily roots, ends have the most damage, daily usage of heat tools(blow drier&curling iron)

So far I have tried Godiva, Ultimate Shine, Seanik, Montablano, and Karma Komba. I actually like all of them! If I had to pick one, it would be Montablano because I feel like it gives me a lot of shine, brightens, it cleans thoroughly, it smells fresh, my hair has some volume and it's still in healthy condition(it does everything pretty well). Going on smell ALONE, I would choose Godiva because it smells like jasmine and Im crazy about jasmine scented anything. It's also the most moisturizing of the bunch.

What they ALL do is thoroughly clean my hair. clean my roots, getting rid of all the junk, build up, greasiness, dirt, etc, they are all decent clarifying shampoos. They all smell fantastic in their own way. They all give a sort of shine to my hair. None of them damage my hair or leave my hair in knots and they all leave my hair(roots/scalp specifically) in normal condition. They are so cheap considering they last a long time(many washes&months just be sure to let it dry or not siting in water) and they are extremely portable friendly.

These shampoo bars all work for me. I am a type of person that likes to have the shampoo clean&clarify my hair(that's what shampoo is for) without damaging or over drying or leaving my hair in knots and then to have the conditioner/mask/treatment do all the heavy moisturizing&repairing. The shampoo bars achieve all of that. I do NOT recommend these shampoo bars to people who need extra moisture, lots of moisturizing in the shampooing step and or people that need a light&gentle cleansing shampoo. I'm guessing this would be women with thick, coarse, curly/wavy hair. All I can say for fine/thin hair is that my mother has fine thinning hair(she has balding spots and self conscious of it), she loves cinnamon so I gifted her with the NEW shampoo bar. She was skeptical as well but she ending up loving it and her hair! Im not saying her bald spots grew back but her hair that she does have looks better and she's happier with it. This is a women that only uses Matrix Biolage shampoo and she set that aside afterwards.

Very long review for a small looking hockey puck! Overall I love these, I use these, there are many different kinds, they do work, I think the shampoo bars is a genius idea and for most people including myself, could possibly replace regular liquid shampoo(although I do love LUSH's Cynthia Stout Beer shampoo too!). I recommend these!

I notice New helps a lot with hair loss since the first day I used it, so I was very happy with my purchase already. I don't need to use much of this product and for sure don't need to use it twice like people say you should do with normal shampoos. I tried wash my hair twice with this and it got so clean and dry it got oily in the next day trying to compensate for the lack of natural oil, now I just use a little bit and my hair looks great. I do feel like it drys my hair a little bit, it doesn't make much difference in my scalp, but I make sure to use a great amount of moisturizing conditioner in my ends and the problem is solved. I travel a lot, so for me the product being solid and not occupying space in my luggage is a huge plus. Will definitely buy a solid shampoo again, but I think I will try a more moisturizing one the next time.

I got the new Brazilian shampoo bar. It smells really good and lathers well. Its also much easier to store than a bulky bottle of shampoo. I can't say it made my hair more healthy tough.

I haven't brought anything from lush for quiet a while, I am a subscriber of Michele1218 and in one of her recent video, she mention the 'New' solid shampoo and how great it was.
I was near a Lush store the following day and decided to purchase this. Lets start by saying this is the most I've ever spent on shampoo, I usually don't spend a lot on Shampoo, Conditioner or Body Wash.
In the last year I have experience quiet a lot of hair fall out, colleagues at work are complaining because they have to clean after me, my work place is covered in my hair.
The 'NEW' shampoo stinks! I hate the scent, it's not exactly Herbal Essence. It smells of All Spice powder in your hair, good thing is the smell doesn't linger and it does go away as soon as you walk out of the shower.
This stuff lathers up really well and you don't need a lot to get it going. I do feel that this cleans my hair so well that it feels like it's almost too abrasive for my hair....if you know what I mean.... I would NEVER use this shampoo without conditioning my hair afterwards. I feel after I was my hair with this shampoo, my hair seems to take in my conditioner better.
I notice ever since I started using this shampoo my hair feel a lot more clean, NO fall out which was really interesting, my hair feels softer and it feels and looks like it got more life to it. I feel the shampoo itself done a fantastic job at cleaning my hair and preparing it for my conditioner, I feel the results I got was because my conditioner got to work better because my hair is a lot cleaner thanks to this shampoo.
I must say I love this shampoo, luckily I brought 2 bars when I was at Lush cause I'm not oftenly near there.

These things are a life saver. As a frequent traveler (especially when living out of a backpack), the lush solid shampoos are just awesome. First of all they're tiny compared to a bottle of shampoo. If space is an issue, then look no further because these are the size of a hockey puck, but can last for almost 3 months (shampooing every other day or so). And that's pretty impressive as I have really long hair and usually go through a normal sized bottle of shampoo in under 2 months. They lather really well, which is something I was worried about because I like my shampoo to lather nice a rich. New smells nice but I don't find the smell stays in my hair, but I've never had the smell of a shampoo last as the conditioner always comes out stronger. As New is such a bold colour, I found that it did leave some colour behind in the shower (or wherever I put it to dry) but it never stained so I wasn't bothered. As for the actual cleansing powers, I find this to be pretty on par with what I expect a shampoo to do. It's not like it's changed my life with how my hair looks or feels or anything, but I've never found a shampoo that has done much in that aspect for me. It gets my hair nice and clean, doesn't leave it any dryer than normal, and I'm totally happy with that. Of course the only thing that sucks with this is storage!!! It turns to mush if you leave it be in the shower or if it doesn't dry properly. I can be a real pain sometimes if I forget to properly put it away. While traveling, I would leave it out somewhere to dry then put it into a soap container. This worked fine but is a bit more effort than just closing the cap of a regular shampoo bottle. But even after considering this, I still love these and will keep purchasing, especially for travel.


EDIT:
I thought I should add, my hair type is quite pretty normal, not super dry, maybe a bit on the oily side when I skip shampoo for the day, and it dries almost completely straight. My friend on the other hand, has very curly hair. She also tried this shampoo and really like it, so goes to show that it'll work with more than one hair type.
