Lush Review: Jumping Juniper Shampoo Bar

Jumping Juniper Shampoo is in bar form. It is supposed to help reduce the amount of oil at the roots over time by treating your hair and scalp with juniperberry oil, lemon and lime, lavender, and rosemary.

"Fruity juniperberry oil sorts out your oily, congested scalp, while lemon and lime make your hair clean and shiny and give it an extra fresh scent. The incredible herbal duo, lavender and rosemary are superpowers if you’re having troubles in the oil department. Rosemary has been used for hundreds of years for its anti-bacterial capabilities, while lavender is known for its ability to balance and soothe the scalp"

  • It lathers up extremely well- all you need is a few swipes across your hair. {I do 4 swipes since my hair is long}
  • I do see a small decrease in oil, but not enough to feel comfortable with washing it every other day. So, I have to stick with washing it daily.
  • It does a really nice job of leaving my hair super clean without it feeling stripped or dry!
  • It doesn't smell bad, but it also doesn't leave any sort of shampoo smell in my hair.
  • It lasts forever! I've had mine for 3 months and it's only decreased to about half the original size, and I use it about 5 times a week! {sometimes I even double lather- it's supposed to last about 80 washes}
  • It's only ~$10 for over 3 months of shampooing... bargain!
  • The lather seems to decrease after a couple minutes leaving me feeling like I need to re-swipe the bar to finish washing my hair.
  • I wish it smelled more, it doesn't have a long-lasting scent.
  • I still have to wash my hair daily.
  • Since it's in bar form, I have to use a container so it always gets stuck to the bottom making it hard to get out again.
  • You cannot leave this in the shower where it's damp because it will deteriorate and stick to everything.

Overall, the shampoo bar last forever. Although it cleans my hair extremely well without drying it out, I still have to wash it daily to avoid the dreaded 'dirty hair look'.
