LUSH Curly Wurly Shampoo Review
Right! So, LUSH Curly Wurly Shampoo – this isn’t your stereotypical form of a shampoo but WOW! To be fair none of lush’s products are in the typical form of what a product would normally be (toothpaste tablets and powdered body lotion, for example). But Curly Wurly genuinely makes hair washing an absolute joy! As someone who battled with frizzy curls for years, being a former hairdresser I tended to straighten or blow dry my hair for it to look presentable. Until Winter 2017, when I decided to undertake a “curly journey” and embrace my natural curly hair and try to work with it, not against it. Curly Wurly Shampoo has made this process so enjoyable and luxurious, it is so addictive!
LUSH Claims :
A rich coconut shampoo for anyone that wants soft, nourished hair. Lemon and papaya juice contain fruit enzymes to deeply clean the hair, leaving it feeling fresh. We’ve then used plenty of dessicated coconut and coconut oil, both rich in proteins and natural oil. We’ve added jojoba oil, a light oil which offers moisture and shine to the hair, while organic extra virgin olive oil helps to strengthen.
As with most Lush products the online descriptions continue to list the multiple natural ingredients and their benefits, but their outline of this product is perfect. And the coconut!? Oh the coconut! The smell is so beyond dreamy, it smells exactly how you would imagine pureed coconut to smell. I am a huge fan of using coconut oil as a hair treatment (that is a whole other post to write!) and all the ingredients within this are amazing. It isn’t a shampoo that particularly lathers, but it gently cleanses and hydrates the hair leaving behind a glorious tropical scent.
The packaging is standard for Lush, which as I have mentioned in previous reviews I personally love. This shampoo comes in 3 different sizes, which is great to try out for the first time (or if like me you become obsessed the larger sizes are far more appropriate!) The fact that it is in a tub rather than the traditional bottle doesn’t hinder the product at all. Taking a luscious scoop of this stuff is beyond satisfying.
One thing to bare in mind, is that as with a lot of lush products with natural ingredients there literally is desiccated coconut in it. So if you are someone who washes your hair in the bath rather than the shower there definitely will be pieces of coconut floating around. This does however make your bath smell rather incredible (just rinse round the sides when you’re done!).
Price wise I think – for a product that is this good – is spot on. The 100g is £6.25, 220g is £12.50 and 440g is £19.95. Not the cheapest of shampoo’s but as I owned a salon for several years I am a firm believer that you genuinely get what you pay for when it comes to hair care.
Overall, I am in love with this shampoo. If Lush came out with a conditioner or hair mask to match it would be heavenly! But as one of the staple products in my hair care routine, I will continue to use this time and time again.
