Advantages Easy to use and works beautifully leaving hair soft.
Recently I have been trying a little experiment. The idea came to me because I do a lot of travelling on shuttle aircraft between London and Scotland, and for convenience and also for price I don't take hold baggage if I can avoid it. Due to the restrictions on liquids allowed to be carried on board in hand luggage, now pegged at 100mls, I had grown tired of constantly buying small shampoo bottles, or decanting old favourites into little plastic bottles, which I found messy and a bit of a tie to be honest. Having seen some shampoo bars in Lush a while ago I decided to treat myself to a few of them to see if any could possibly be effective as well as convenient for travel. It's no good having handy things if they are useless.Lush shampoo bars are about 6cms in diameter and about 2cms deep and they have several to choose from. They also do chunks of solid shampoo and conditioners which are more difficult to transport as they are not compact like these, and of course they do some more conventional bottle based versions.
The compact ones include.Godiva which Lush describes as being "Sexy jasmine-scented two-in-one shampoo and conditioner bar" this one really spoke to me and is a beautiful summer yellow.
Hard-a lovely pink roses coloured bar- perfect for those of you living in hard water areas (I picked that as my kettle furs up quicker than you can say it has!)Hybrid -hair-softening liquorice two-in-one bar. This one doesn't talk to me as it looks grey like granite-maybe a bit manly! Reputedly great for long hair.
Jumping Juniper this is lilac, and contains lavender and juniper to control oily hair. Not a problem I have but might buy for my son.Karma Komba- this is a green one and claims to be sleek promoting! Might try that soon.
New -stimulating spice shampoo bar for tired scalps suffering from hormonal hair loss. This one is brick red and smells of cinnamonSeanik -softening sea salt shampoo scented with jasmine, mimosa and orange blossom.-a gorgeous blue
Soft- for soft water areas. This is a pretty blue and contains sea salt and citrus. I might try this for when I am in those areas outside Essex!Squeaky Green is an herby one and looks like a Petra dish growing moss. Quite interesting.
Ultimate shine- a lovely simple rosemary shampoo with sparkles. This has my name on it.Soak and Float. Effective anti-dandruff shampoo bar that smells like tar. This one is perfect for anyone who has dandruff.
The first one I decided to try was Godiva because it claimed to be a shampoo and conditioner in one. I have to say I approached this with more than a modicum of scepticism, as to be honest, I have never found any all in one products which work for more than two washes on my hair. I have dyed blonde hair with weaved highlights, and it is long shoulder length and thick, so products which make these claims seldom produce the results I am looking for.
Never the less I was so fed up of the travelling with little bottles and also being environmentally conscious I could no longer really justify to myself the wastage of the trial sized travel containers, and also the fact that most of my favourites just aren't available this way.
