To know me, it to know that I am no fan of honey scented products nor the taste of the sticky substance. It is one of those things I want to like, everyone else seems to enjoy honey scents and tastes and here I am on the outside, looking in. A clear case of F.O.M.O (fear of missing out) if ever there was one. Well one product allows me to be part of that gang, the newly reformulated Lush Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar. If all honey scented products shared such aroma.
"Deliciously toffee-scented, this syrupy sweet bar will make your hair turn heads (and noses). Honey is renowned for adding softness and shine to locks. To top it all off uplifting sweet wild orange and bergamot oils create an aroma that transports your troubles away."
Lush Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar has a soft, creamy yet sweet and as mentioned above almost Toffee fragrance. It is a joy to experience and almost good enough to eat, at times it oddly reminds me of the scent of honeycomb, this may not appeal to staunch honey lovers but for everyone else it is delightful. In fact you mid yourself washing your hair a little longer than normal just to soak up the aroma.
If you are new to Lush Shampoo bars let me briefly explain; they are compact, long lasting (one bar equates to 800ml of liquid shampoo) and solid, which equates to zero mess until they become wet. To use you have two options: you can simply wet the bar, rub between your hands and apply as you would a liquid shampoo. The other option is to rub the shampoo bar straight on to the hair and scalp. I don't personally recommend doing this as the bars are fairly solid and by doing so you could damage the hair. I recommend purchasing the Lush Round Tin or any small container with a lid to keep your products dry in-between use, you must allow the bar to dry out I before popping them into an air tight container for hygiene purposes - nobody wants a mouldy bar of shampoo/soap after all.
Each Lush Shampoo Bar has been created for different hair types and purposes, Lush Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar is ideal for dried out and rough hair textures, it has been loaded with honey to moisturise and soften the hair. I have fairly wavy come curly hair that is pretty untameable at the best of times and I find that Lush Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar not only leaves my hair soft, shiny but with less frizz and static too. Sadly it does not do much for my baby hairs which have a mind of their own and are currently standing on end as we speak - yeah I have no idea why either. As far as shampoos go I do find this better suited to thicker hair types as it is so moisturising and as such it may weigh down finer hair textures if used regularly.
