{I’ve Tried That} ♥ LUSH Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo

September 12, 2014

When you think of honey-based products I’m pretty sure that it doesn’t conjure up images of Turkish delight, does it? Yet that’s exactly what I smell every time I use this divinely-scented shampoo from LUSH (R115 for 110g). With ingredients like honey, geranium, neroli and rose this shampoo is almost like a bouquet of flowers in a bottle. These amazing components offer all sorts of moisturising and cleansing properties in the way of a golden amber liquid that smells delicious. I’m a huge honey fan. I pour it over my toast and porridge and now I’m even pouring it all over my hair. Honey is the first ingredient on this shampoo’s list so you can be absolutely certain that there’s copious amounts inside the formula. There’s 50% to be exact. Honey is excellent for nourishing and moisturizing dry hair and adding lustre.

I think this shampoo is absolutely perfect for those of you that suffer from dry, irritated or flaky scalps. This has the perfect blend of ingredients to target all those pesky hair issues. Honey is a natural anti-bacterial that leaves hair feeling soft and shiny as well as giving your scalp a thorough cleansing. Sunflower Lecithin makes your hair shiny and Linseed is abundant in omega-3 fatty acids which will help promote hair growth.

This shampoo has a thickish consistency that foams up beautiful and my hair feels squeaky clean after rinsing it out. My hair is very curly, fine and after Winter it’s been frustratingly dry. This little bottle of happiness has left my hair feeling ridiculously soft, moisturised, shinier and even a bit more voluminous. I also love that the delightful scent of this shampoo lingers in my hair for a while. I like to pair it with my “American Cream” conditioner and together they leave my hair feeling insanely silky and manageable. This is another winner from LUSH. However, it’s by no means cheap, but hey, they’re honest about this and clearly state on their label “This is a no expense spared shampoo”. It’s available in 3 sizes. 110g (R115), 300g (R235) and 600g (R385).
