Hey there bow friends!
If you’ve been here for a while, you’ll know that I have oily skin as well as an oily scalp. My hair becomes a gross grease ball really easily and I often times resort to washing it everyday or drowning it in dry shampoo. So let’s rewind to a few weeks ago when I stepped into Lush.
I have been thinking of B’s sister a lot (She has started college this fall and I’m just really proud of her.) and being in Lush that day inspired me to try things she has used or talked about in the past. I have seen her look at the shampoo bars time and time again and I’m thinking maybe she’s onto something. To be honest, the thought of a solid shampoo was just scary, but for some reason I stepped out of my comfort zone and went for it. I have no regrets.
Jumping Juniper cuts through the oil and dirt in my hair and offers an incredibly deep clean. Most clarifying shampoos strip my hair and make it feel straw like and stiff. This shampoo bar actually makes my hair so soft and shiny. I have colored hair and haven’t noticed any color in the tub or staining of towels after showers either. I don’t notice any scent in my hair afterward (which is a shame because the bar smells heavenly), but it’s still lovely nonetheless. Oh, and the best thing? It helps my hair keep cleaner for longer and it feels much healthier.
“So Tara, how do you use the thing?” Well, I use this bar every other day as to not do some clarifying overkill, but I use it in a very specific way. I find the best method is to wet the bar as well as my hair and then gently swipe the bar on my scalp, the crown of my head, and all along my hairline. And yeah, one swipe is all you need. The bar produces an incredible lather that thoroughly cleans my tresses. Because of the one swipe method, I think this little bar is going to last me forever. I think it’s worth a shot.
What do you all think? Have you used a solid shampoo before? It’s a little fiddly to store, but man is it awesome. And fast. Especially in the morning when I’m running late. Speaking of, if I don’t get to bed, I won’t be able to wake up tomorrow.
