LUSH Blousey Shampoo: Review + Photos

I haven't tried many hair products from LUSH, but recently I have started using their Blousey shampoo.      This is a gentle moisturizing shampoo that is meant for a variety of hair types.

"A gentle, non-stripping shampoo for bottle blonds, afro queens, natural hair, damaged and all that's in between.  Preservative-free and chock-full of moisturizing bananas and butters." 

When it comes to shampoo (and hair products in general), I love anything super moisturizing.  I have smooth ends and overall pretty healthy hair, and I owe it to moisturizing products and skipping hot styling tools most of the time.  I wasn't sure what to expect with this shampoo because I haven't used a lot of products with this sort of ingredient list.  Like a lot of LUSH products, Blousey is made up a natural ingredients (like bananas).

The smell of this shampoo is also very interesting.  It's definitely unique, and a little strong.  The LUSH website describes it as "blackcurrant and juniper berry".  At first, I wasn't quite sure if I liked the scent, but after using it I warmed up to it.  You may want to smell this one before trying!

Blousey comes in a jar type container that allows you to scoop out product with your fingers.  This is the first open-jar shampoo I've ever used, and I've found it has its pros and cons.  I like that when I get to the bottom, I won't be shaking a bottle furiously to get extra product out.  However, with such a wide opening, I'm always afraid that I'll either A) drop it all over my shower, or B) accidentally soak it with water.

The final verdict?  Blousey passes the test!  I'm really picky about products being moisturizing and this one definitely leaves my hair hydrated and super soft.  One drawback I've found is that I find myself using a larger amount of product with this shampoo to achieve the level of lather I like.  A single "serving" of this shampoo for me is about 1.5 times a "serving" from a normal shampoo.

Retailing at $25.95 for 8.4 oz, this is an expensive shampoo.  Especially considering that I find myself needing more product "per serving" than with other shampoos.  That being said, I am very happy with the way it cleanses and moisturizes my hair.  This will just be one of those shampoos I buy when I've been extra good and deserve a treat. :)

Blousey is available in LUSH stores and on the LUSH website!

What shampoo are you using right now?
