- You either love it or you don't.

I like to be diferent though. I seem to have a love-hate relationship with them. I love their sweet, refreshing smelling soaps but I detest their perfumes and I'm certainly not keen on their Henna (literally spent hours chipping away at the block). Why go to Lush when you can go out and purchase packet Henna from your local asian convenience store for the fraction of the cost?

I found myself wandering into Lush a couple of weeks back as standard. Usually I find myself wandering back out again empty handed (unless I've ran out of Flying Fox!) But this time I'd read some raving reviews about BIG and thought I'd check out what all the hype was about and grab myself a tub.



It is a bit of an odd shampoo, first of all the packaging, it comes in a tub which you have to scoop the product out of. As for the contents itself, it's packed full with salt mixed with a bit of gooeyness, you need to ensure you keep the water out of this or the salt will just dissolve into nothingness.. Okay, I lie, more like extra gooeyness.




I was particularly concerned it would leave chunks of salt in the hair. Luckily, all the salt seems to melt away when it comes into contact with water. This stuff has a refreshing citrus-y smell to it which helps waken my zombie like self at 6.30am.


In terms of performance, it really does leave your hair squeaky clean as it lathers beautifully once you've added a bit of water to it. But then comes the killer question, is this dehydrating? It contains salt, so naturally it can be a tad drying and at first I found this problematic thinking it can't be good for your hair if it's stripping, but if you're after something seriously drying try 'Ditch the Dirt' by Umberto Giannini Glam Hair. It is drying on a horrific scale, my hair would get caught in my comb. In comparison with that, BIG is meek and mild.

RESULTS?Now you may be thinking why bother using BIG if it's drying? Well, with the right conditioner it works and detangling is a breeze (Currently using John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Conditioner which is super lightweight yet smoothens the hair). A quick note, you need to ensure you do not apply conditioner to the roots unless you want to weigh your locks down which would be a waste.

One of the big positives to note about BIG is that with my fine, combination hair my roots have a tendency to get oily during the day whilst my ends stay quite dry. Using this shampoo in tandem with a such a good conditioner gives the scalp a good, deep clean whilst nourishing my ends.

Above all, the very best thing about BIG shampoo is the results it gives post-blow drying. It really lifts the hair and I could tell a difference between using this and some other standard shampoo. On those lazy days where I CBA blow drying, using Big and just letting my hair air dry, it still has body and shine. Now that's what I call a RESULT!



I would recommend this shampoo to anyone that has fine/combination hair. As my hair is quite fine I find that my roots get greasy quickly, this is a god send. Although please do bear in mind, it is quite stripping so I would not recommend this to those with long hair that wash it on a regular basis. This product is perfectly suited to someone like me with mid-length hair and a fair bit of product build-up that needs washed daily.

And finally, this stuff will last you an age! You only need a tiny amount for it to lather and clean all that gunk out of your hair.

BIG shampoo costs 10.95 for 330G. Also available in smaller sizes.

Have any of you tried BIG? How did it work for you?
