I don't want to be dramatic or anything but THIS ONE'S A GAME CHANGER

Sup?  It's Caroline.

My hair and I have been at odds for quite sometime.

Remember when I did that hair poll?  Well, ombre hair won.  So I tried and failed twice to get some blonde to stick in my hair.  I have a little bit of ombre action going on but it's not very noticeable.

Suffice it to say, all that coloring has completely destroyed my ends.  I'm also cheap and don't want to pay to get it all cut off, plus, I'm trying to get really long hair.  So I (don't kill me) trimmed my own hair and cleaned up the worst of it.

No I just find that the ends of my hair never look smooth.  They're always frizzy and it was driving me absolutely bananas.


Fast forward to about two weeks ago.  I was watching a youtube video and this girl (I think it was MissGlamorazzi but I don't have the time to go make sure) was talking about Lush.  I've loved Lush for ages, and have been happy with pretty much everything I've bought from them.

She mentioned their solid shampoos, and my first thought was "Uh. No way."  But she sounded like she loved them.

Fast forward now to this weekend.  I was in Dublin for spring break and I went into a Lush store on Grafton street.  I loved that everything was in English... I'm tired of trying to figure out Lush in French.

I picked up a massage bar that smells like chocolate (I love it, by the way) and then went over to the solid shampoos.  I grabbed "Seanik" because it said it would make my hair soft and shiny, and plus it didn't smell quite as nasty as some of the other ones.  It just has a very light smell that's reminiscent of a trip to the beach.

I brought it back to the hotel and tried it that night.  I figured out that the best way it to "warm" it up by rubbing it on your hand for a few seconds, and then just rubbing it on your scalp.  I did four quick swipes over my hair and then put the bar down, and it lathered unbelievably.  Just a little of this goes a long, long way.

I went to bed with wet hair.  I do it all the time and people need to not judge me, ok? Thanks.

I woke up the next morning and my hair was absolutely crazypants.  I had kinks and waves out the wazoo.  After freaking out momentarily, I brushed it out and BAM.

My hair was silk, beach-wavy, and softer than it's ever been.  My ends were waved in perfectly, and I didn't have any product in my hair but shampoo.

Long story short?  It's a winner, guys.  I think it was about 6 euro 50 cents at Lush in Dublin, but it's more expensive in the US.  But well worth it!  It will last you forever, and it's great for traveling because you don't have to deal with messy liquids and you can put it in your carry-on.

I dig it, guys.  I'm giving it four and a half out of five stars, and that only because the smell isn't all that special.

Here's the link.  Buy it.  Use it.  Love it.


FTC business:  I bought it with my own, hard-earned, babysitting money.  The child spit up all down the front of my shirt and yanked out some of my hair, so I think it's worth it.  I was not sent this, and this is an honest review.  I just really like it and want y'all to like it too.
