Project 2012: Cleaner Hair for Longer - Lush I love Juicy Shampoo

This was my first Lush purchase for a long long long time, I daresay that my last purchase for myself was about 5 or 6 years ago simply because I sort of forgot about it and always classed it as a bit over priced for what it was. But since I've been blogging I've heard all sorts of rave reviews about their hair products so when I was Christmas shopping I thought I'd ask the nice lady to advise me on which one to go for given that my hair was greasy. 

She introduced me to I Love Juicy; explaining that her mum had bought it and a massive bottle lasted her, her sister and her mum for a few months for 2 reasons... a) you don't need a lot to get a good lather b) you don't need to use it everytime you wash your hair.

My Verdict

Out of the 3 products I have tried so far this is by far my favourite, I love the smell and how it makes my hair feel; it does give me around another extra half a day without washing my hair and the smell really sticks to your hair... it's a gorgeous citrus lemon scent! The one thing I will say is that I don't think it'd be suitable for someone with heavily coloured hair because the citrus ingredients do have a tendency to strip; given that I'm blonde it can have some lightening qualities especially if I use it for a few days on the trot; however that isn't one of the benefits which Lush lists. 

Basically this is one shampoo that you should definately try if you have greasy hair or you tend to get a product build up... the only downside is the price; I paid £4.75 for 100g (tiny tiny bottle) But given it's excellence I think I would repurchase this, especially if I don't find a cheaper alternative (But I am still looking!!)

If you'd like to buy this you can do so on the Lush website, it comes in 3 different sized bottles, I'd recommend buying the little one just to try it out first, then it's not such a loss if you don't like it
