I've always had an itchy scalp and dandruff (Attractive! I know). I wear a dark uniform for work and getting little flakes on my shoulder is so embarrassing, I had to do something about it. I love the body shop but I had never tried the hair care products, so I decided to give the ginger shampoo a try.

The online description:
"This refreshing shampoo with ginger extract is perfect for dry scalps"
(such a detailed description....)

The description leaves much to be desired but don't let that hold you back, this shampoo is fantastic!. I have used it for about five months now and I find it is very "refreshing" on my scalp, stops my itching and the sent is lovely. The only down side is I still feel like I can still see some flakes in my hair.You can get the shampoo in two different sizes large for £6.50 and small for £4.50. There is no matching conditioner but The Body Shop sells a banana Conditioner (and shampoo) that smells delicious.

As much as I love this shampoo I really wanted some thing a little more "Natural". After seeing a video blog by farahdhukai about the "no poo" method I was instantly intrigued. The one she Recommends is J.R. Liggett shampoo bar the virgin coconut & Argan sentIts a bit to expensive for me so I did some research and seen lush make hair soap too. After talking to one of the in store consultants about my hair he recommend the "soak and float" bar.

The online description:
"A no-nonsense shampoo bar to help soothe scalps. Cade oil is derived from juniper and has long been used to treat scalps with psoriasis, dandruff and eczema. Rose and marigold petals calm the scalp and soothe redness, whilst lavender oil has been added for its antibacterial and balancing effects on the scalp."
(That is more like it!)

I really didn't really know what to expect from this bar but after my first use I fall in love with it!. I've been using it for almost two months now and so far I am impressed with the results. My hair is softer than ever and I find it stops my itchy scalp and keeps the flakes at bay. The sent isn't great but I don't mind it too much and it doesn't linger in the hair. Also it's only made from 9 ingredients!, that was a big positive for me. The bar only cost £5.75 and the helpful man in Lush told me you can get 40-60 washes out of it so its good value. They have a few more products for your hair such as the Big Solid Conditioner bar that I can't wait to get my hands on, they also do Henna hair dye. 

Have you ever tried anything from The Body Shop or Lush hair ranges?

With Love From The Moon,
