I don't know if I see any pros in this shampoo.
The fragrance is a personal preference (I hate it), it smells way too strong and unpleasant in my opinion.
It's very harsh, like a deep cleansing shampoo, and very drying. I hate the grainy salt texture of it.
It gives me wire-like hair without adding any volume.
Terrible! But I think people with oily hair and scalp may actually love it.

One of LUSH's best products, which I've purchased many times over the years. Although there are other clarifying shampoos on the market, this one is unique in the sensory experience that it offers: scooping and massaging salt into your hair while the gorgeous, unique fragrance surrounds you. It is quite stripping so I only use this once a week, and I would avoid if your hair is coloured. Other than that it's one to try!

I have long straight hair that is fine and gets limp within a day of washing due to my oily scalp. I have tried BIG, Seanik, and Jersey Bounce. I will admit that BIG gives me the most volume out of all 3. Seanik was the worst of them all as it didn't give me any volume at all. I really like BIG for this purpose and yes it gives alot of shine too which is awesome! I also love the smell as it smells of being on a beach! The only downside is I cannot use this as my sole shampoo because 1) it can potentially dry out my hair, and 2) whenever I use this shampoo I noticed more hair fallout whilst in the shower. For these 2 real important reasons I use this on special occasions or at least once a week. I prefer Jersey Bounce for frequent use even though I wish it provided more volume like BIG. Regardless I'd repurchase BIG!

I'm a bit disappointed in this shampoo, even though I do like it. It doesn't give my hair any volume, and my hair is very flat, fine and long, but I did expect to see at least a bit because of the all great reviews. BUT it does make my roots very soft, which is quite weird as it feels drying when you rinse it out. I would give it a 4,5 lippies as a product, but I'm only giving it 3 because it does not do what it claimed to do. I love the smell.

Was gift shopping for daughter in law when i found this. Love it. I'm 63 with thinning hair, so you wouldn't think it would work well, but the it does. I have near constant hot flashes, with drenched hair, and whew boy, summer is not even here yet. This both helps clean out scalp and it a mood lifter. Hair seems to stay cleaner, longer and it less limp.

I have long straight hair that could use a little more volume and oompf, this can achieve that but because it's a bit drying I use a conditioner or hairmask afterwards and that takes away the effect. I liked to use it as a clarifying shampoo once in a while and I love the scent, beachy and fresh with a hint of vanilla!

I have naturally medium hair, but a lot of it! My hair is superthick, and long. It's also wavy and frizzes like crazy; the only way I can wear it is blow-dried: I have tried to pull off the wavy look, but it doesn't work with me, and ends up frizzing like crazy. Because of the thickness, I have what you call: combination hair (scalp gets oily after a day or two, but ends remain dry). For the record: I wash my hair every 4 days because of my dry ends,and I use dry shampoo in between washes.

I usually use drugstore shampoos, such as Pantene, Dove, etc. I've tried everything, and the problem is that after washing my hair twice, I always feel my hair isn't clean enough.
Because my hair is so thick and heavy, I feel like it falls flat quickly, and frizzes at the ends.

Enter this shampoo:
This shampoo cleans. When I say cleans, I mean SQUEAKY CLEAN. I love that. The smell is phenomenal, and it lathers very nicely. I really like that it has salt in it, because in a way, I feel like I'm sorta getting a good scrub, if that makes any sense! I was hoping this shampoo would give me volume, but sadly it didn't do much. It did give me insane shine, though.

The way you use this is like any shampoo, except instead of a squeeze bottle, you have to scoop the shampoo out of the tub it comes in. The texture is quite gritty, because of the salt, and it is a hassle to distribute, but once it's on your hair you just add water and it foams up. I find that sometimes I don't have to double wash my hair with this.

-Smells incredible
-Lathers nicely, and quickly
-Leaves your hair squeaky clean
-Natural ingredients
-Leaves hair super shiny

-Expensive (as are most of Lush products, but a little bit goes a long way!)
-Can be drying; I don't advise that anyone use this on a daily basis. I use it twice a week and it worked out fine for me.
-Didn't really add any volume to my hair
-Packaging can be annoying. It comes in a tub packaging, and you have to scoop it out with your hands, which means some water can get in. It's also a bit of a hassle to distribute on hair.

Would I repurchase? I don't know. For now, I'm experimenting with Kerastase. After that, maybe Aveda? I like to switch around my shampoos. Maybe in the future, for a change, I may pick up some Big.

A very nice clarifying shampoo. Leaves my hair squeaky clean and refresh. I like the idea of using natural salt. I used it only twice a week and I make sure to use a deep conditioner for my ends because I have oily scalp and dry ends. The smell is nice but I would prefer it more florally or citrusy. The packaging is unhygienic so you need a plastic or a wooden spoon to scoop out the product out of the container.

first of all, this shampoo is way too expensive. it's a great shampoo, it made my hair voluminous and the smell is fresh, but i wouldn't buy it again because of the price. it's just not worth it.
