Making My Hair Feel As Big As The Sea | Lush Big Shampoo & Big Solid Conditioner

Even though I have quite a lot of Hair it’s incredibly fine and flat, which means that i’m always on the lookout for anything that will add a little bit of volume to it. That’s why when I saw that Lush had released a Big Shampoo and a Big Solid Conditioner that both contain Sea Salt and Seaweed to add volume whilst I was out Shopping a couple of weeks ago, I obviously had to pick them up. Well i’ve been using them for a little while now, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of them.

Here’s what Lush say about both amazing products.

The Lush Big Shampoo.

A volumising Shampoo made with Seaweed and Sea Salt. While the Salt lifts the Hair and adds body, it also softens the Hair alongside Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and protein-rich Toothed Wrack Seaweed. Lemon and Lime allow the Hair to shine as they allow the Cuticles on your Hair to lie flat, meaning they reflect more light, Use a small amount on wet Hair and work it in well to build lather!

The Lush Big Solid Conditioner.

A sensational scented Solid Conditioner that’s big on volume and shine. Fine Sea Salt adds softness and body while Glycerin helps retain moisture and Protein-rich Toothed Wrack Seaweed helps make your Hair more manageable. A squeeze of fresh Lime and Lemon Juice get to work on adding gloss by helping the Cuticles to lie flat and reflect light. Work the Bar between the Hands before applying a small amount into wet Hair, a little goes a long way.

It’s scent.

I absolutely loved it’s scent, as even though it contained Hand Harvested Sea Salt, Fresh Organic Lemon Infusion, Fresh Sea Water, Toothed Wrack Seaweed Infusion, Fresh Organic Lime Juice, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Neroli Oil, Sicilian Red Mandarin Oil, Vanilla Absolute, and Orange Flower Absolute, I thought that it had a delicious sweet and floral yet ever so slightly salty Violet scent to it that kind of reminded me of walking into a Room full of Violets after being at the Beach.

It’s consistency.

I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s consistency when I first used it, but after I had been using it for a little while, it actually started to grow on me, as even though it was called a Shampoo, I thought that it felt incredibly thin and gritty, and was more like an incredibly thin and gritty Body Scrub rather than a thin and watery yet ever so slightly balmy Shampoo.

What it did when I used it.

I really liked what this did when I used it, as once I had started to massage a little bit of it into my Hair, it turned from an incredibly thin and gritty Body Scrub into a thick and balmy Shampoo with little pieces of Sea Salt in it that spread really easily through my Hair. I also really liked that because it contained so much Sea Salt, that it gave my Scalp a very light but gritty scrub whilst I was massaging it into my Hair.

It’s results.

I really liked it’s results, as not only did this leave my Hair feeling incredibly silky soft, smooth, bouncy and intensely hydrated, but it also left it looking extremely volumised, shinier and much healthier too.

It’s packaging.

I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s packaging, as even though it came in a tall cylindrical Plastic Pot with a screw top Lid that looked beautiful sat on my Beauty Shelves, I found the Tub incredibly difficult to open as I usually had very wet Hands when I was trying to open it.

It’s scent.

I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s scent, as even though it contained Fine Sea Salt, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Toothed Wrack Seaweed, Fresh Organic Lemon Juice, Organic Jojoba Oil, Fresh Organic Lime Juice, Glycerin, Vanilla Absolute, Vetivert Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Bergamot Oil, and Candelilla Wax, I thought that it had an incredibly creamy and zesty yet ever so slightly floral Violet scent to it that kind of reminded me of if someone had crushed some out of date Palma Violet Sweets into an entire Bottle of Lime Oil.

What it did when I used it.

I really liked what this did when I used it, as once I had started to massage a little bit of it into my Hair, it started to release lots of thick and creamy yet ever so slightly balmy Conditioner that spread really easily through my Hair.

It’s results.

I absolutely loved it’s results, as not only did this leave my Hair feeling incredibly silky soft, smooth, bouncy and intensely moisturised, but it also left it looking extremely volumised, shinier and much healthier too.

My overall thoughts.

Overall I would have to rate the Lush Big Shampoo a nine out of ten and the Lush Big Solid Conditioner an eight out of ten. I really liked the Lush Big Shampoo, as I absolutely loved it’s delicious sweet and floral yet ever so slightly salty Violet scent, it’s consistency, what it did when I used it, it’s results, and it’s packaging, but I did find that it was incredibly messy to use as the little pieces of Sea Salt got everywhere whenever I used it. I would have also preferred it to have come in a Bottle rather than a Tub, as trying to open a very stiff Tub whilst I had wet Hands was incredibly difficult. I really liked the Lush Big Solid Conditioner, as I absolutely loved what it did when I used it, and it’s results, but I just wasn’t a massive fan of it’s incredibly creamy and zesty yet ever so slightly floral Violet scent.
