Lush Big Solid Conditioner ReviewTuesday, September 17, 2013
Good evening, lovelies!! :D
Tonight I have a review of Lush's wonderful Big solid conditioner.
As many of you know, Big started out as a delightful shampoo chock full of sea salt (over half of the base is made out of it!), sea water, citrus juices, seaweed and many other lovely ingredients, and is intended to give limp hair a beach-y boost.
Enter Big conditioner...
This baby, relatively new to the Lush lineup, is made out of very similar ingredients but in a solid (although a bit squishy!) conditioner form. Jungle is the only other solid conditioner Lush currently offers.
The bar is infused with coconut and jojoba oils to condition, while the sea salt and sea water help to give flat hair a bit of help.
There are several ways of using a solid conditioner, like crumbling a bit into your hand and mixing with water to make a paste. I prefer to take the whole bar and rub it all over my hair after I rinse out my shampoo.
While it is in your hair it will not feel like there is much there, but after you rinse it out your hair is left soft and smooth. :D
Be aware that this is a more 'light' conditioner, probably ideal for those with oily strands and who do not need very much moisturising. If you have severely damaged and dry hair I suggest going for something that packs a bit more of a moisturising punch.
My hair is very damaged and dry, but it is also fine. It gets frizzy easily and is wavy, and it is a bit interesting trying to control it. Despite all of that, the combination of Blousey shampoo and Big conditioner keep it in tip-top shape! (Blousey is so moisturising that I don't need a stronger conditioner for my hair... and that is saying a lot!)
Another favourite use of my Big conditioner is as a shaving lotion!! :D
After cleansing the legs I run the bar up and down them until I have a thin film, and then I proceed to shave with ease. This has significantly reduced my razor burn and any cuts that I make, which used to be very often. It also does not clog my razors, and it smells great! :D
So there you have it: a great light conditioner that does not weigh hair down, can be used effectively as a shaving lotion, and can be safely transported wherever you may travel.
Have you used Big conditioner before?
Have a lovely night, my friends!
