Lush I Love Juicy Shampoo
Advantages: Nice smell, gives a great clean
Disadvantages: Very expensive, could be too harsh for some hair types
I'm afraid I am the owner of a head of hair which gets greasy very quickly, no matter how much I try not to touch it, style it or put products in it I still find myself having to wash it every other day. In a bid to try and reduce this as much as possible I decided to try Lush's 'I love Juicy' shampoo, a shampoo that Lush states is for hair that needs a 'jolly good wash'.
The shampoo is available in three sizes 100g (£4.95), 250g (£9.95) and 500g (£15.95). There's no hding the fact that this isn't a cheap hair product, it's rather expensive for the amount you get. The shampoo comes in a standard plastic bottle with a black flip top lid. The bottle isn't the greatest I've ever used, and can be a little stiff to squeeze, but isn't particularly problematic.
The shampoo contains a selection of citrus and fruit ingredients, including juice from mangos, pineapples, kiwis and papayas, and is designed to give your hair a thorough clean and get rid of any grease and dirt that may not be fully removed by a milder shampoo. It's great if you use a lot of styling products between washes, especially ones that build up in your hair. It does have a strong scent, but it's not unpleasant nor overpowering just fresh and fruity.
I use the same amount of this shampoo as I would any other, I do however alternate it with other shampoos to give my hair the benefit of different products, to prevent product build up and to ease my bank balance! I use this product once or twice a week, and find that a 250g bottle can last me a few months this way. I take a teaspoon sized amount and massage it thoroughly through my hair, concentrating on my roots where it is most likely to be greasy. The scent is pleasant on my hair, and the consistency is nothing out of the ordinary. It doesn't lather up as much as 'mainstream' shampoos, but still lathers enough to distribute it throughout your hair easily. After thorough massaging in I then rinse thoroughly and condition after.
My hair feels extremely clean after using this, and does feel like any grease or products have been well stripped out - which could potentially be a problem for people with coloured hair, I personally wouldn't use it then as the high citrus content is bound to have an effect on your colour.

I would recommend this shampoo for a deep clean, but would refrain from using it daily unless you really need to. I would steer clear if you have coloured hair too. A good product from Lush, albeit a very pricey one!
Summary: A good shampoo for a deep and fruity clean!
