You know the scenario…

You pack your suitcase, check it at the airport, get to your destination, pick up your suitcase from the carousel, and find that not only is your suitcase now wrapped in plastic but all of your clothes are wet and smell like they just took a shower.

It has happened to me; it has happened to the best of us. After one such unfortunate incident as I just described, I vowed to never go through that hassle ever again and picked myself up some solid shampoo and conditioner bars from Lush.

The lovely sales associate at Lush hooked me up with specific bar blends that help my (unfortunately) very bleach-fried hair.

Shampoo: Jumping Juniper

What Lush Says:

Our purple shampoo bar jumps into action to sort out oil problems on top. It cleans away grease and balances sebum production for soft, shiny (in the good way) hair. Fruity juniperberry oil sorts out your oily, congested scalp, while lemon and lime make your hair clean and shiny and give it an extra fresh scent. The incredible herbal duo, lavender and rosemary are superpowers if you’re having troubles in the oil department. Rosemary has been used for hundreds of years for its anti-bacterial capabilities, while lavender is known for its ability to balance and soothe the scalp. You’ll be jumping for joy in no time!

What I Say:

A success! Not only was the bar extremely easy to lather, but it kept my frizzy locks clean, healthy, and smelling fantastic. An added bonus – it didn’t turn to mush like I thought it would when i put it soaking wet back into its tin container.

Conditioner: Jungle

What Lush Says:

Tame your mane with our solid fruity conditioner filled with an abundance of fresh fruit and conditioning cocoa butter. LUSH co-founder and inventor Helen Ambrosen was the first person to make a solid conditioner work. She discovered that cocoa butter will slide onto your hair to make it softer, and then dissolve in water to leave it smooth, shiny and de-tangled. Jungle feels rich and hydrating on the hair and leaves you with a fresh, fruity fragrance after washing it off.

What I Say:

Not so much of a success. I found that I had to scrape the conditioner from the bar with my fingernails or forcefully rub my hair with the bar to get anything off of it. That, and when I did get some in my hair, it left me with a tangled mess. For someone with long, not-so-silky-soft hair, this was not ideal. Alternatives welcomed.
