This is a "naked" product- a solid shampoo bar with no packaging, which saves the environment. It is a round, solid red bar with tightly-packed granules that are visible. It comes with a little cinnamon stick on top.
It is recommended to keep it away from water, as it is soluable, so it is best to store it in a dry place. Lush do a round metal tin especially for this purpose that costs £2.50 which I do not like personally, as the shampoo tends to get stuck inside if put in while wet and you have to bang on the tine to get it out. It's very handy for travelling with though, and I am told this shampoo can go into hand luggage, as it isn't, of course, a liquid. Very practical to use in the gym too, making those gym bags a little lighter.
Can be bought in the Lush store or from their website online for £5 for 55grams.
You are supposed to wet hair, rub the shampoo bar on it like you would with a soap for your hands in three strokes, lather and rinse. I have found, however, that I need to rub much more on my long hair-it does lather quite well though, much better than Seanik and Squeeky Green shampoo bars.
Oily hair is de-greased really well but dry or damaged hair is very dehydrated and quite hard to brush, although easier than with Squeaky Green. Due to my damaged hair, I have always needed to use conditioner or a hair masque after this shampoo, however I am used to doing this anyway so it wasn't a change for me. I have found that it's best to use a very nourishing hair mask with this, meaning oily roots are de-greased and dry lengths are nourished. Scent lingers slightly.
