I have pondered the wonder of the solid shampoo bar for a long time, always humming and hawing about whether to actually purchase one, despite being told they last longer than a typical bottle of shampoo. After I handed my dissertation in I decided to treat myself. I would usually reach for a nice soapy bubble bar but my flat has no bath.
There are a few different bars to choose from but I went with Seanik because as the name suggests it smells like the sea and it contains sea-salt which I was told by the lady in Lush is good for volume – something my hair badly lacks – it is as limp as a bit of seaweed.
As you can see it looks a little bit like a blue macaron.
Other ingredients are:
- Irish Moss and Nori Seaweed – to soften the hair.
- Lemon Oil – for shine.
- Mimosa Absolute, Orange Flower Absolute and Jasmine Absolute – for a light fresh feeling.
The bar works just the same way a bar of soap does and does not take much to get lathered up and you really do not need to use a lot of it in your hair. I always wash my hair twice but when using this you could easily only wash your hair once because it gives you hair such a deep cleanse but it does leave your hair feeling a bit too squeaky clean in texture so I use my typical conditioner afterwards but if you don’t use conditioner you will probably see the benefits such as volume more.
It would be handy if you travel about a lot as it takes up a lot less room than a bulky bottle of shampoo and I would be good for a festival I am considering taking mine to Download Festival so help get all the dirt out of my hair!
I would like to use it with a condition from Lush such as American Cream as I have been told that is is really good for dry hair. Anyone any experience of Lush conditioners?
