LUSH NEW! Solid Shampoo

NEW! solid shampoo is a stimulating and reviving mint bar to encourage healthy hair growth. Made with clove, cinnamon leaf, and peppermint oils, as well as clove and nettle.
My Rating: ★★★★☆
4 out of 5 stars
Scent: cinnamon & clove
Price/Size: $9.95 for 1.5oz
Recommended for: thin hair, hair loss, hair that needs body, oily hair
Review: Before purchasing NEW! i read alot of reviews and there were some key questions people were asking/answering in ever single review so i’m going to do the same thing. Keep in mind i have long/thick hair with oily roots and dry ends.
1. Does it reduce shedding/hair loss?
Yes, it does. At first i noticed more shedding, but after about a week I did notice any, even when i’m brushing or blow drying my hair.
2. Does the scent linger?
No, it doesnt linger at all, so if you hate cinnamon scents (like my husband) dont worry. Its strong in the shower but I cant smell it at all once it’s rinsed clean.
3. Does it extend life between shampoos?
Yes!! I can go a day or two longer without shampooing my hair since I started using NEW!. My hair obviously isnt perfectly clean on day #2, but its not oily and doesnt look terrible.
4. Does it clean scalp well?
Yes! My scalp feels soooo clean when i use this shampoo, but i dont get the “tingly” sensation some people get when using it. Plus it cleans my oily roots without affecting my dry ends.
5. Is my hair healthier overall?
I would say so, yes. I have less hair loss, a nice scalp/roots, i can go longer in between shampoos, and it doesnt seem to my my dry ends any dryer than they already are. Plus it doesnt rinse out “squeaky clean” which i HATE because that just tells me its stripping my hair of everything (even the stuff it needs). So overall I really like this solid shampoo.


  1. Nice review :) I've been hearing some good things about Lush's solid shampoos so I think I'll pick some up next time I go there ^^ How long does one bar last for you?

  2. Your welcome! The solid shampoos really are amazing and soo cost effective.
