Lush Big Sea Salt Shampoo Review

Happy Sundays everyone! 

Finally I decided to review this product. Cannot believe it took me this long. I fell in love with Lush the minute I entered the shop for the very first time in June in London.

I have quite dry and oily hair. Let me explain. So, the ends of my hair are quite dry and I get split ends quite frequently. For this reason I cannot use straightening irons and curling tongs and hot tools in general that often. Which for me is a bit of a downside as I really like straight hair. But anyways. My roots can become quite oily at times which make the hair at the roots quite flat and the ends of the hair dry. And believe me it is a nightmare. I also consider my scalp quite dry however. Or better flaky. And it is not dandruff as I have tried several anti dandruff products which actually made my scalp worse.

Whenever I use several products on the hair or when I go and do an upstyle or use hair spray or so I have to wash my hair the day after as I get a lot of product build up which make me itch terribly. So, I am always on the look out for shampoos which are deep cleansing shampoos which cannot be used that frequently as they dry out the hair.

When I went into Lush I remember telling them that I have never tried  Lush products and that I would like to try something for my hair. I was introduced to this product which is more or less a scrub for the scalp! Exactly what I needed!

It is more of a mechanical scrub than a chemical one as it is made of coarse sea salt which is quite big compared to the normal salt. This is the product I was looking for all the time!

It is made of natural ingredients and in fact I think it has a shorter expiration date compared to other products.

How I use it. I use it once a week not more. sometimes even once every fortnight. I wet my hair and then take a small amount and rub it gently on the scalp. I used the word gently as I can assume that harsh and very fast scrubbing doesn't do any good. I do this for a minute or so and then I rinse and I use my normal shampoo and conditioner as usual.

This product gets rid of any build up without irritating the scalp or anything. It also leaves the scalp really soft and I noticed that it actually increases the days where I don't wash my hair.

And what I have found out is that LUSH actually ships to MALTA ! Shipping is a bit pricey but you can always divide shipping amongst you and your friends :)
