I apologize for the lapse in posting, I went on vacation last week and it look me awhile to get back into the swing of things!
I get SUPER excited when the Lush Kitchen comes out with new hair products, and S had said she was interested in trying this shampoo awhile back- So, when it became available, we had to jump on it!
Lush’s description of this shampoo on the website states “A beautiful herbal shampoo with a fresh, minty fragrance. Chlorophyllin helps to balance oil production, fresh bay tones the scalp and garden mint helps to give hair body and lift. Beat the washday blues and wake up sleepy, lifeless hair with Washday Greens.”
Now, I definitely would not call my hair lifeless, it actually has a life of its own, but I figured my scalp could always use the extra help. I’ve been using this shampoo for a couple of washes now, and I feel that my hair looks great!
The scent is very pleasant, with an overall a minty smell but toned down with a bit of earthiness. This shampoo does not create a huge lather, which can be a little disconcerting for me. I like a bit of lather so I feel like it’s actually working. The first time I used it, I did feel that my hair wasn’t completely clean afterwards. That might be from the conditioner I am currently using, which is a little difficult to wash out. It’s not a Lush conditioner, and I will be reviewing it soon as well. So the second time, I washed my hair twice to make sure I didn’t miss anything. A lot of shampoos I’ve tried will leave my hair feeling squeaky clean but with a dry hay-like texture, which this does not give me at all. It seems to be moisturizing and very gentle.
Since using it, I feel my hair is much softer and shinier, which is wonderful! My hair is ombre right now, and the blonder parts have the tendency to look dry and dull, so this shampoo seems to liven up my hair in that sense. I am also working on growing it out, so my hope is that Washday Greens helps my scalp grow healthier and stronger hair.
Overall, I am happy with this shampoo and I wish I had gotten a second bottle!
Have you tried any of Lush’s shampoos? What’s your favorite?
