In light of my upcoming trip to Montreal, I decided I needed new conditioner. Probably a little strange, I know, but bear with me. So what is a girl, in the spirit of light packing and TSA regulations, to do? Head to the nearest Lush store, of course! If you’re not familiar with Lush, it is an all natural cosmetics store known for their handmade soaps, minimal packaging, and overwhelmingly sweet and delicious smell at malls. Fortunately, my local Lush store isn’t too far away from me: just a hop across the Wisconsin/Minnesota border and off to the Mall of America we go.
My newest Lush conditioner favorite is called Jungle. I gave it a chance when I was home for spring break in March with no suitable toiletries. Normally, I’m a huge fan of Yes To brand products, but I was at Lush and needed something right away! I love everything about Lush and customer service lives up to that love completely. A wonderful woman asked me about my thick, long, and tangled hair type and after a lovely chat, she pointed me in the direction of a pile of adorable green pucks with animals printed in it.
The woman informed me that I should use it by running it over my hands to create a layer of the conditioner and then rub that through my hair. I tried this, and it did not work at all. Not ready to give up, I stroked the bar lightly through my hair as I do with the solid shampoo bar and had great success! After my hair dried, it was the softest it had been in a very long time. Not to mention, I got lots of compliments about how fresh, clean, and yummy my hair smelt. I’m a sucker for compliments so that’s enough for me!
My hair is normally snarly and full of knots. I wish I was joking. Thankfully my Jungle conditioner keeps my hair silky-smooth and knot-free. My last bar lasted me for about six weeks, which will be the perfect amount for my trip! I will always support solid toiletries for travel as they are much simpler to travel with. No worries about plastic bags, TSA guidelines, leaks, and more space in your bag for souvenirs!
