Lush Rehab Shampoo Review

Rehab Shampoo (100g):

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

I find Lush liquid shampoos to make my hair a little bit tangled. It isn’t a huge issue, but it is definitely something I did notice occur with this particular shampoo.

The scent is very strong! To me it smells like sweet fruit, lavender, mint and tea tree. Mostly mint and tea tree to me, although it actually does not contain any tea tree whatsoever! If you don’t like those sorts of scents, I’d try a different Lush shampoo.

It was very difficult to know how much of this product I would need to use at a time. This shampoo is somehow super inconsistent! Sometimes I’d only need the tiniest amount to lather up my entire head of hair, and other times I’d have to add additional shampoo to my hair 3 or 4 times before being satisfied with the lather.

I don’t fully like the name of this product. Rehab is a word with many negative associations – things I don’t particularly want to pop into my mind whenever I go to wash my hair! I haven’t even be to rehab, but I’m sure this name would be even more disturbing for anyone that has!

Rehab is a very simple shampoo – some people only love Lush for the colourful, creative, innovative, unusual looking products! If you just find simple products to be boring, I’d try a shampoo bar instead!


Pros:

I personally love the scent of this shampoo. It was so unexpected, because most of the ingredients are fruit juices. It really does smell like mint, tea tree and a hint of lavender. It is just the most clarifying, clean smell and I absolutely love it! It also has a sweetness to it, that reminds me of the scent of hard boiled minty sweets.

I think the scent of this product does wonders for your mind too. The clarity of the scent just makes you feel refreshed, de-stressed, clear and ready to start the day with a fresh mind. If you are a person that experiences negative moods / negative ways of thinking frequently, I’d highly recommend you try this shampoo!

Again, for a friend who experiences negative moods often, this would make a really thoughful gift to them! The name might be a tad offensive, but if you just explain to them that the purpose you thought they would like the product is how clarifying and uplifting the scent is, I’m sure they’d be very appreciative!

Okay, so the name is a little odd. BUT, it does make my mind instantly start playing Amy Winehouse’s ‘Rehab’ in my mind – which isn’t such a bad thing!

The consistency of this shampoo is really lovely, as is the colour of it! It is just a super pale, transparent cream colour. Really simple and nice 🙂

I found this shampoo to be quite softening on my hair, and found that it generally lathered up quite well.

This shampoo cleans hair very well.

I found Rehab to have a slightly thickening effect on my hair!

My hair has seemed stronger recently than it usually does. I have extremely fine blonde hair, and usually it feels quite weak. I definitely think Rehab has helped with the strength of my hair!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I think this was a really nice shampoo. It was pretty basic, but felt somewhat like a staple product – everyone could do with a bottle of Rehab in their shower!

Honestly, I didn’t notice any massive change when using this shampoo. My hair does seem thicker and healthier than it used to, but I still lose a lot of hair whilst in the shower, my hair still gets greasy quickly etc. I think that I do overall like this shampoo – it just isn’t absolutely perfect I suppose!

Overall, I’m going to rate Rehab a 4 or a 5 star rating. It is difficult to pick between the two… I’m rating Rehab a 5/5* rating. I was going to give it a 4* rating but honestly, my hair has just been in much better shape recently, which will at least be partially due to Rehab. I’ve hardly been noticing any split ends in my hair and my hair has been both thicker and stronger.

Lush Daddy-O Shampoo Review

Daddy-O Shampoo (100g):

Rating: 2/5*

Cons:

I found that I’d lose quite a bit of hair in the shower after using this shampoo… This is something I have found with a few of Lush’s shampoos (such as Cynthia Sylvia Stout,) so I know this wasn’t just a flukey thing! Maybe it is the SLS in the product, or perhaps it is just too drying on my hair. Either way, this was obviously definitely a con for me!

Daddy-O was difficult to lather up. I’d squirt a bit of shampoo into my hand and attempt to lather it into my hair, with little success. I’d have to repeat this process a few times before my hair felt like I had used enough shampoo to actually thoroughly clean it. I’d end up using probably around 4 squirts of shampoo on average to clean my hair properly – it would really depend on how many days I went without washing my hair! Anyway, this process could be quite time consuming and irritating!

I didn’t REALLY notice much of a change in the colour of my hair or anything. Maybe a slight change, but definitely not a massive one! (This shampoo is supposed to reduce brassy tones in blonde hair and make the hair appear brighter and lighter.)

I’d always need to both condition my hair AND apply R&B Hair Moisturiser after using Daddy-O, because it just wasn’t very nourishing!

The scent of Daddy-O is very sweet and quite a natural sort of scent – definitely not everyone’s cup of tea!


Pros:

This is a purple shampoo, some some people with very light hair may find that it helps to fend away those brassy tones!

This shampoo physically looks gorgeous! It is a gorgeous, deep, extremely pigmented purple colour, and has a metallic sheen to it.

I think the name of this shampoo is quite sweet!

This shampoo lasted me and my partner quite a long time. I received this shampoo on 1st February, and although I didn’t start using it right away, I did start using it not too long after receiving it. I used up the last bit of this shampoo on Sunday 8th May, which means it lasted both me and my partner around 3 months. Considering it was only a little 100g bottle of shampoo, I think this is pretty damn good!

This shampoo smells really good. It smells clean, fresh, and like Parma Violet sweets. It also has this very green undertone to it – almost a very pleasant woodsy, grassy scent. This undertone becomes much more prominent while using the shampoo in the shower, and I think is an aspect of the scent of this shower gel that is very special and unique! I LOVE the scent of Daddy-O shampoo!

This is one of Lush’s vegan shampoos, so you know you aren’t adding to the harm of any animals by using it 🙂

Although I didn’t notice much of a change in the colour of my hair or anything, I did notice that my hair did seem to be very SLIGHTLY lighter in general.

This being a Lush shampoo means it is pretty much all natural, and the ingredients are quite good for your hair!

Daddy-O definitely cleaned my hair very thoroughly!

After using Daddy-O, my hair would usually feel quite soft.

This shampoo really increased the volume of my hair! My hair always would feel rather thick compared to usual after having used this shampoo.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I wanted to love this shampoo – I really did! When it comes to a shampoo causing me to lose more hair than I usually would in the shower though, well, that’s a huge no-no. I’m not exactly what caused this – it isn’t something I found with most of the shampoos I have used from Lush, only a few of them. I think it could possibly be due to the shampoo not going very far once in the hair. This being the case has a knock on effect – it means I have to spend a lot of time to repeatedly add more product to my hair and trying to lather up. Perhaps this increased amount of time having SLS in contact with my roots caused some of my hair to fall out! Also, perhaps all the extra lathering I needed to do caused my hair to become a little tangled, and maybe some hair came out that way.

Overall, I’m afraid I’m going to give Daddy-O a rating of 2/5*. I’m giving it this rating because overall, using the product was a negative experience. Maybe continuously finding little locks of hair in the bath tub would be a good thing for some people who really want their hair thinned out, but I have extremely thin hair, so this was absolutely terrifying for me! I also don’t think it’s a very healthy thing to be happening in general… I would comb my hair very thoroughly with a fine toothed comb beforehand, so there would be no way that they were simply loose hairs/hairs that had already detached themselves from my head.

It is a real shame, because I really enjoyed so much about this shampoo! Ah well, until next time!
