I've been a fan of Lush's solid shampoos for years and years, but I've just started trying out their liquid shampoos over the past year. Big ($26.95/325g) has always intrigued me, since it's not your typical liquid shampoo. This formula actually contains sea salt, which is meant to clarify and bring major volume!
"Over half the base of Big shampoo is made with sea salt, giving massive volume to hair in need of a boost. Sea salt is also full of minerals and de-greases hair, removing dead skin cells and dirt without stripping natural oils for a fresh, squeaky clean feeling. We balance the sea salt with seaweed infusion, extra virgin coconut oil and avocado butter for soft, nourished locks. Finally, fresh citrus juices are squeezed in for incredible shine. It's no wonder this one is a best-seller!" - Lush
How cool does Lush's Big Shampoo look!? I just had to pick up a tub to try for myself - with a gift card that I got for Christmas! Big smells absolutely incredible, thanks to the coconut oil and citrus juices. As you can see in the pictures, this shampoo is very thick - somewhere between a solid and liquid formula. To use, I take a scoop out of the jar, and rub it onto my scalp. The salt pieces are fairly large, and they actually work really well at giving my scalp a massage! I was surprised that this shampoo does actually give a nice lather, and it's not hard to fully rinse out of my hair. I do take an extra couple of seconds to make sure that I've completely rinsed Big out entirely, but I haven't had any issues finding pieces of salt in my hair the next day!
True to its' claims, Lush's Big delivers clean, shiny, and very voluminous hair. Now, my hair doesn't exactly need any extra volume, but I do still love that it gives some bounce to my waves/curls. If you have fine, limp hair, then I think you'll absolutely love the volume that Big can give to your hair. I've been using Big as my daily shampoo, but I also think that it would be a great weekly clarifying shampoo for those with dry hair.
After using Lush's Big Shampoo - added volume and shine!
I'm completely impressed with Big! I love the body and shine that this shampoo brings to my hair, and the scent is incredible. This formula is unlike anything that I've ever used before, but now that I've tried it, I'm hooked. Have you tried Lush's Big before? What are your go-to shampoos for body and shine?
