Best Lush Hair Care Products Review 2017
Table of Contents
Tired of the same old hair care products providing the same old hair care experience, effect, and benefits (or lack thereof) for your hair? I wouldn’t be surprised! For far too long, the big players in the hair care industry have been rinsing and repeating the same old tired “revolutionary” products, and consumers just keep purchasing them because there have not been many other available options. Not only are these products minimally differentiable, but many of them are made with un-natural preservatives and fillers which compromise on safety and effectiveness for the sake of costs and profits. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a personal care products company out there that put safety and effectiveness first while also innovating their hair care products in order to offer their customers new, fresh, and exciting products? Luckily for you, such a company is here – Lush!
While Lush has become a near household name-level brand thanks to their wildly popular bath and shower time products, including their beloved bath bombs, they have an amazing line of hair care products to offer as well! From unique takes on the traditional in hair care products, such as shampoo and conditioners, to the Lush-style unconventional – shampoo bars, henna hair dyes, styling treatments, and more – Lush’s full line of hair care products is designed to help consumers (men and women alike) gain and maintain healthy, attractive hair in safe, natural, and exciting ways. Lush’s hair product line is also designed to be diverse and wide-ranging enough to accommodate all different kinds of hair and hair care products. Rest assured, regardless of your hair texture, color, quality, or potential problems, Lush can provide a solution for you.
Lush Shampoos Review
In typical Lush fashion, the Lush shampoo line is composed of formulas and mixtures which combine only the best in natural fruits, vegetables, oils, substances, and other ingredients. As much as Lush likes to push the envelope in terms of personal care changes and advancements, there’s just something about the winning shampoo design that doesn’t warrant changing. You have a bottle full of a liquid shampoo which easily dispenses from the bottle – some people aren’t going to want to mess with this tried and tested formula, no matter what. Therefore, it was up to Lush to upgrade their liquid formulas themselves from the usual, most commonly bought shampoos in order to stand out. They have done a fantastic job of this, incorporating a wide variety of natural, safe, effective, and pleasantly fragrant ingredients in all of their shampoos, the best of which (in my humble opinion) are as follows:
Lush Jersey Bounce Shampoo Review
One of the most popular shampoo’s that Lush has to offer, Jersey Bounce, accomplishes what you might imagine it would, when considering its name – volume! Jersey Bounce can get your hair in the swing of things, Jersey style, by pumping up your locks with mineral-rich, coarse sea salt which both cleanses your hair and has a volumizing effect. Also included in the formula are softening linseed decoction, nourishing honey, and protein-rich, organic free range eggs for softening and managing difficult or stubborn hair. Give it a try and you’ll wonder why you didn’t try to volumize your hair before!
Lush Big Shampoo Review
Big is not dissimilar to Jersey Bounce – they both use coarse sea salt in order to add volume to hair in need of a boost – however they accomplish their tasks in somewhat different ways. Big is full of minerals which de-grease and cleanse hair, removing dead skin cells in the process and leaving hair with a clean, fresh feeling. A seaweed and coconut oil infusion nourish damaged hair, while fresh citrus juices add shine to even the most stubborn, dull heads of hair. It’s no exaggeration to say that Big shampoo is one big deal!
Lush I Love Juicy Shampoo Review
The truth is that virtually all of Lush’s shampoos could incorporate the “I Love Juicy” slogan, as all do in fact take advantage of the benefits and healthy properties contained in different natural juices to make great formulas! However, I Love Juicy simply takes things to the next level. Containing fresh fruit juices of pineapple, mango, kiwi, and more, the ingredients label for I Love Juicy might look more like it belongs on a Snapple bottle than a shampoo one, it sure is effective. The juices in the formula help mop up excess sebum which comes from the scalp, and sea salt and seaweed extract add volume while softening tough locks. It’s one of the most popular shampoos in the Lush line up for a reason! Also available from Lush is Rehab, Daddy-O, Fairly Traded Honey, No Drought, Blousey, Curly Wurly, and Cynthia Sylvia Stout – all of which offer unique benefits and properties for your shampoo needs.
Lush Shampoo Bars Review
It seems simple enough, doesn’t it? People love using bars of soap to clean their body, so why shouldn’t they love using bars to clean their hair? It’s funny, gels have ‘crossover appeal’ – people use liquid cleaners on their body and hair – but bars, seemingly, do not. Well, seemingly is the operative word here, because as it turns out, people absolutely love using bars to clean their hair – and especially shampoo bars from Lush! Once again, with their shampoo bar innovations, Lush is changing the way that people think about a personal care product. Lush shampoo bars are compact yet long-lasting, packed with effective ingredients and essential oils, and every bit as effective as liquid shampoo (if not more so). Lush boasts that shampoo bars are good for up to 80 uses, and I personally have found that this is, if anything, a conservative estimate. There are my very favorite Lush Shampoo Bars:
Lush Brazilliant Shampoo Bar Review
Studies show that most women who seek hair care solutions are looking for ways to straighten, calm, and manage their thick or curly hair. Brazilliant is a shampoo bar that not only accomplishes these tasks, but smells great while doing it! Made with andiroba oil, a natural de-tangling agent, Brazilliant is an orange-colored bar that is hand crafted to help transform thick, unruly hair into soft, smooth, and shiny hair that is conditioned and ready to go! Ylang ylang and orange oil help create the pleasant scent while providing additional shine that makes your hair look absolutely fantastic – Brazilliant is a real game changer!
Lush Copperhead Shampoo Bar Review
When I hear the term “Copperhead”, I usually think of the Batman villain of the same name – not a revitalizing and moisturizing shampoo bar that can transform my hair in a very short amount of time. Lush, however, may have done a good enough job with this one to change my word association. Copperhead keeps hair looking vibrant, moisturized, and soft with its unique blend of freshly ground coffee (yes, you read that correctly), conditioning henna, cocoa butter, fairtrade vanilla, and roasted coca extract. It may sound like an odd combination, but boy does it get the job done, and it smells absolutely delicious while doing it!
Lush Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar Review
The biggest Honey I Washed My Hair shampoo bar problem you’re going to have is, quite simply, resisting the temptation to eat or try some of this amazing smelling bar. Please don’t, it’s only meant for shampooing! Honey I Washed My Hair and its intoxicating honey-toffee scent contain real fair trade honey that will moisturize hair while cleaning, adding volume, and adding one of the best aromas you may ever have the pleasure of smelling. Also available from Lush in the shampoo bar category are Lullaby, Montalbano, Jason and the Argan Oil, New!, Seanik, Karma Komba, Avocado Co-Wash (an avocado lovers favorite!), Jumping Juniper, Godiva, and Soak and Float.
Lush Conditioners Review
When it comes to Lush shampoos, we have the regular shampoos, and we have the shampoo bars – things are no different when it comes to Lush conditioners. Lush prides itself on its diverse array of conditioning offerings, not only in terms of its form (bar or liquid) but in terms of conditioning strength. Lush offers conditioning in levels ranging from lightweight to triple-strength, so no matter your conditioning needs, Lush is sure to have you covered. I highly encourage trying the conditioners until you find the one that works best for you, or even more ideally visiting a Lush store to speak to a professional Lush associate and sample the conditioners – you won’t be sorry that you did! My personal favorite Lush conditioners are as follows:
Lush Big Conditioner Bar Review
Sea salt, hydrating coconut oil, and bladderwrack seaweed combine to condition your hair while adding volume and shine, all in the package of a compact off-white bar in Big. Jasmine and fair trade vanilla extract has the scent of the bar impressively covered, as this conditioner will not interfere with the scent of other products or do anything but enhance the aroma of your hair – guaranteed. Fresh lemon and lime juice top things off in the formula by adding shine, which help make this one of the most effective, beneficial conditioning products you will find.
Lush Jungle Conditioner Bar Review
Lush boasts that Jungle is “the fruitiest solid conditioner ever made” – a somewhat bold claim, but one that I can confidently grant my stamp of approval to. With a base that includes freshly mashed bananas, avocado, figs, kumquats, and passion fruit juice, Jungle provides all of the benefits you might expect from a fruity conditioner – incredible odor, great shine, and an overall experience that will leave your hair feeling silky smooth!
Lush American Cream Conditioner Review
“American cream – stay away from me!” – these aren’t lyrics you’ll be hearing any time soon, as American Cream conditioner isn’t likely to do anything but attract and endear folks to your beautiful, newly conditioned hair! A medium-strength liquid conditioner, American Cream uses softening honey, lavender, and fresh oranges to soften and calm rough, uncooperative hair. The strawberry-vanilla scent is responsible for the name inspiration, as the odor harkens back to simpler times in the 1950’s when US Milk Bars offering creamy vanilla and strawberry shakes were bursting at the seams with young patrons.
Lush Veganese Conditioner Review
If you yourself are a vegan, look no further for your ideal conditioner. If you know anyone who might be a vegan (and if anyone you know is a vegan, you’re sure to have heard about it), they would love Veganese as well! Lush’s lightest conditioner yet, Veganese wasn’t easy to make, as the goal was to concoct a vegan conditioner that did not use lanolin – eventually, Lush did get the job done, and this wonderful conditioner is the result. Using agar seaweed gel as the softening agent in favor of lanolin while incorporating lemon oil for gloss and shine, and lavender and rosemary to sooth the scalp and hair, veganese does everything you could hope for out of your conditioner in a vegan package!

Lush Hair Styling Products Review
Not all of us are looking to shampoo, condition, or repair hair – some of us like the hair we’ve got, and just want to effectively style it! Thankfully, Lush has what to work with – hair balms, dressing, styling gel, mists, and more make up this handy, unique and natural line of style products and enhancers. These products are made to work with any number of different kinds of hair, so whether you’re dealing with hair that is loose, tumbling, dark, light, sleek, straight, curly, or something different entirely, Lush helps you get the most out of your hair with these all-natural and effective products.
Lush Queen Bee Hair Honey Review
While it looks more like a slab of cheese than a hair styling product, Queen Bee Hair Honey does more for your hair than any kind of cheese ever could. Created to help curly-haired folks control their hair, Queen Bee uses almond oil and cocoa butter to help style curly hair and afros of all shapes and sizes. Also included in the formula are corn oil, argan oil, corn oil, and more.
Lush Hair Custard Hair Dressing Review
Looking to smooth or soften your hair? Hair Custard just might be the product for you. A great hair care product that will make your hair smell even better than it will make it look, Hair Custard uses argan oil, fair trade organic cocoa butter, and honey to moisturize, soften, and smooth hair while leaving a pleasant vanilla scent behind. The product features excellent hold as well – at the end of my day after styling with Hair Custard in the morning, my hair had not ‘deflated’ at all.
Lush Mr. Dandy’s Hair Candy Review
A common problem in the hair styling game is that of unpleasantly sticky products that leave both your hair and your hands with a hard-to-rid stickiness. An earthy styling cream, Mr. Dandy’s Hair Candy gives texture and hold to hair without any of the unpleasantness that comes along with styling with a sticky product. Incorporating fresh bananas, organic jojoba oil, oakmoss absolute, cypress oil, and lime oil, Mr. Dandy’s Hair Candy gets the job done in all respects without any downsides – what could be better? Other Lush hair styling products include Sunny Day detangler, Sea Spray hair mist, and Dirty styling cream.
Lush Henna Hair Dyes Review
A fantastic alternative to unnatural, unsafe, synthetic dyes, Lush’s Henna Hair Dyes come in block form and are easy to use, providing great results with little hassle. I personally don’t dye my hair, so I can’t speak to the exact effectiveness and results provided by these henna dye blocks, but what I’ve generally heard is that they work just as well as the other products in the Lush hair styling category (and that’s good enough for me). Caca Burn, Caca Rouge, Caca Marron, and Caca Noir make up the current Lush Henna Hair Dye family – try them out to see which works best for your hair!
Lush’s hair styling product line is, in a word, comprehensive. All six hair styling sub-categories which were covered in this feature come together to form a team that leaves no gaps or holes behind in terms of hair styling.
