Lush Solid Shampoo and Conditioner Bars


I realised that in all my Lush posts, I didn’t actually have a picture of their solid shampoo and conditioner bars. So here they are – now you know what they actually look like. I find one of these lasts about a month for me, but I have very long, thick hair. My husband has short hair and I think he can make them last more like 6 months which is pretty awesome value! Pictured are the ones I use – Montelbano (the yellow shampoo bar) and Jungle (the green conditioner bar). Montelbano is full of lemons to add shine and Jungle has an exotic scent; also it is a very light conditioner so ideal for greasy hair. My husband uses Soak & Float which contains Cade Oil – designed to help with psoriasis,  dandruff and eczema. I also LOVE their BIG solid conditioner, which makes my hair seriously soft and shiny.

Lush now make the conditioner bars in an oval shape, so you can tell which is which, without looking. You can also buy little tins to transport them in, if you are travelling. I only have the round tins, as I bought them before they changed the shape. I cut down the conditioner to take it with me, as I don’t want to buy more. You should always allow them to air dry however, or they will go soggy. They do have a tendency to stick to the tin, so at home I store them on a wire soap rack.


If you want to read more about ingredients and how to use them, you can go to the Lush website and they even have a video. We will never go back to buying shampoo and conditioner in plastic bottles! These work so well, take up less space in our bathroom and  are fantastically compact for travelling. Plus, you can avoid any rules about taking liquids onboard.

Care to share your experiences with solid toiletries?

  1. Love my solid shampoo and conditioner from LUSH! Mine last a lot longer than 1 month, but that might be because I definitely don’t wash my hair every day. I used to have the Honey I Washed My Hair shampoo bar and its smell was divine!

  2. I really need to track how long they last – I keep on estimating. I only wash my hair every 2-3 days, but I have very long and thick hair. So that might be why they don’t last me as long. My husband has short hair and they probably last him 6 months or more!

  3. I have just switched to bar shampoo recently but I am kind of nervous to move to bar conditioner too.. Does it work for your long hair in the long term!? I just ordered a sample of conditioner from julietrosesoaps which is based in London so I can test one out and see if it works (she has free shipping at the moment).. Think I have had my shampoo bar for 3 weeks now and it hardly looks used. 🙂

    • I’ve been using their solid conditioners for over 2 1/2 years now (mostly Jungle because it lasts longer on my hair, with the occasional bar of BIG). My hair has never looked better, particularly thank to their natural ingredients and no silicones clogging up my hair. I’ll never go back! Judging from the nervous comments on here and on Facebook, I will have to try and do a tutorial video soon to help you all 🙂
