Ingredients: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Water (Aqua), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Spearmint Oil (Mentha viridis), Black Pepper Oil (Piper nigrum), Neroli Oil (Citrus amara), Perfume.

Review: This is a straight up, real smelling Peppermint.  Not sweet.  Bracingly pepperminty though.  It feels cool on the scalp and is good to wash your hair when it’s hot or when you need a little wake up. I loved to use it in the Summer, very refreshing.

Lush 2001 description: You can tell when the Dr. Peppermints have been unwrapped in a Lush shop because the scent of peppermint wafts all through the place and off down the street, drawing people in by their noses. This is a bar for baldies, those who have noticed a certain upward advancement in the forehead department. It is made with essential oils to stimulate the scalp including peppermint, which is also used as a remedy for shock and fainting (both of which can occur when men notice they’re going bald). Relaxing neroli oil is there to stop them caring whether they have hair or not.

 

Ice Blue shampoo

This is very minty.  It wakes you up in the morning to wash hair with this.  It smells nice and strongly of mint.  Lush made a soap called ‘Ice Blue; with the same minty smell.

Lush description:  How much mint can you take in one shampoo? How about an quick blast of spearmint and two different peppermints to perk you up from three directions at once. Mint stimulates your hair follicles and puts a bit of life back into your hair; it wakes up your brain too, so it’s a really excellent morning shampoo for everyone who’s a little bit reluctant to get up and running before noon. It’s brilliant for oily to normal hair that’s a bit flat, dull and dozy now and again. Ice Blue Shampoo was one of the Lush creative team’s first ever best selling, brilliant smelling products; we thought it was time to give it another go.

Kinky Hot Oil Hair Treatment

See my demo video below
6.50 20g

If you want enviously silky, hydrated curls, stick with us. Made with protective lanolin to strengthen natural curls, this restorative treatment delivers intense moisture without diminishing your bounce and volume. With uplifting ylang ylang and rosewood, its exotic fragrance will take your senses for a whirl too.
Place your treatment into a suitable container (we like to use an empty black pot) and pop the kettle on. We recommend taking this opportunity to prepare a nice cup of tea as well!
Slowly add a small amount of hot water to the solid treatment – and begin to stir gently. Take your time, adding water as needed, allowing the product to thicken slowly until you are left with an empty stick and a rich, creamy treatment (this can take around five minutes, just long enough for you to finish your tea!).
Apply to dry hair and leave for around 20 minutes before shampooing, to allow the ingredients to get to work, hydrating and replenishing your crowning glory.

Here’s a demo video i made showing me using Kinky hot oil hair treatment.

Avocado Co Wash

Ingredients:  Avocado, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cocoa butter, cucpuacu butter, cider vinegar, bergamot, frankincense, litsea cubeba.

This product is Vegan.

 

I like this.  Unfortunately, i have very long, thick, curly, dry hair, and so using this isn’t feasible for me because i have to use so much.  If I had shorter hair, i would use this way more often because it’s nice.

Here’s a video i made of Avocado Co-Wash, with more info about it.
