LUSH Fresh Handmade Soaps and Natural Cosmetics

I had a bar soap forever back and liked it...forget what it was
They have super strong scents. My old roomate had a stash that was her guarded treasure. Sniff only zone for me as there is nothing worse in my mind than a roomate that uses your stuff. UGH...like the little sister you never wanted...

But anyway...

What do you like from there?

Their henna. I just turned 50 and thanks to some good genes, I have only a couple dozen gray hairs so far. Since I do the no-poo method for my curly hair, going with a more gentl alternative to harsh chemical dyes appeals to me. I've been very pleased with the results.

Noir. My hair is dark brown. I bought a grater at the dollar store to grate it and it works perfectly.

I have their maroon henna, but haven't tried it yet. I use henna in powder form usually, that you mix with water. I am a bit worried about all that cocoa butter in the henna-blocks, won't it make the hair awfully greasy?

I'm a big fan of their facial products and solid perfumes. I still haven't found the right winter mix for me (and since I don't live near a Lush store, I don't want to start dropping tons of money online when I could wait a bit and sample it first) but in the summer I'm completely set and my face never looked better. Now I just moisturize more.

I have Karma and Champagne Snow Showers in solid perfume form that I often layer together and love it. The scents are divine, last, and are convenient to pop in a purse.

I like the Karma solid perfume, too. Have you used the Karma solid shampoo bar? I like the idea of a shampoo bar, no plastic packaging!

I don't really dig the solid shampoo... I wish Karma came in other kinds! I have kind of oily-ish, wavy hair which Karma shampoo SHOULD be great for, but it is really rough on my hair. Normally toward the end of my shower, I rub my fingertips over the shampoo bar and use a smidge in my hair just to leave the scent. It lasts forever that way too. :P Next time I go to an actual Lush store, I might try a different kind. My old favorite shampoo bar got discontinued and my hair hasn't been the same since!

I have oily straight hair, so maybe it would work better for me. But thanks for the tip ! I do love the scent....
which was your favorite shampoo bar?

I didn't have a problem with greasy hair at all. My hair is naturally curly and I follow the curly girl no-poo routine. I "wash" with a silicone-free conditioner and use only styling products that have no silicones. The Lush henna fits in perfectly with this system.
