I’ve used bar shampoos before, though they were olive oil based, and they worked nicely. I think I used the Lush Trichomania bar shampoo several years ago, and remember liking it for the first month or so, then finding it didn’t work so well long term. This honey shampoo bar came in a gift basket I won in a raffle, and though I try to steer away from most skin products with fragrance, I don’t worry so much about using them on my hair. This bar lathered extremely well for a bar shampoo, but left my fine textured hair feeling coated and dry, hard to comb, and as if I was badly in need of deep conditioning. The ingredients are far from natural, as insinuated....like most of the stuff in that store, it’s all strong fragrance and harsh, stripping detergents. The scent wasn’t bad, but after conditioning, I didn’t notice any scent lingering in my hair. I have tried plenty of Lush products...never went back for more of any of them, except the Rose macaroon bubble bar thing, which I bought a few times for a friend who likes them. I really don’t bother to even go in the store anymore, unless one of my teen nieces drags me in. My first big turn off was when we were offered samples, and I saw the sales person getting the samples from the testers, which is extremely disturbing. Such terms as staph infection, e.coli, MRSA, and other assorted antibiotic resistant infections come to mind. I don’t care if it’s free, I am not going to take home, to use on my face and body, product that everyone in the mall that day has dipped their dirty fingers into. Noooo thanks. Anyway, no, I won’t be buying this shampoo bar again. I won’t be buying anything from Lush.
