Review on Lush Karma Komba Solid Shampoo!

Hi Everyone!

It's February! Time flies!

Today I am reviewing Lush's Karma Komba Solid Shampoo
This product can be bought online or at Lush stores. It is about 2.0 oz and cost $12.
Long story short, the description is online, it's too long for me to write down and the effect that it had for my hair was different than my experience, so I wouldn't find it too helpful. =P

What do I think of this product?
Now, I have always been very skeptical of Lush. To me it was a ridiculous smelling store that was very expensive. =P I still kind of think that way, but now I feel that their products may be worth it for some people.
I tried to use Head and Shoulder's regular shampoo and it gave me the most oily and greasy hair ever. -__- Fail, I hate you Head and Shoulder's, I used you for 12 years of my life and now you suck. Such a disappointment....anyway.
I went with a friend to Lush, she is a Lush lover, and recommended this one for oily hair. My hair is not as oily as it used to be, after puberty, the skin and scalp get less oily, but I currently had oily hair from Head and Shoulders, and I do get oil buildup, especially if I do not shower. Because of that, I usually have to shower everyday. So, I was like, what the heck, sure I'll try it. =P

I have also been very skeptical of solid shampoo, but now I see that it really works!
So, yes this is totally made for oily hair. This is very very good at getting rid of product and oil buildup in hair, lathers up well, and does not irritate my skin or scalp! It does have a very very strong fragrance, which....I am not fond of. I took one whiff of it, and started coughing like I had an asthma attack or something....not good. Also, the fragrance will stay in the hair all day, it's not as strong in the hair, but I can definitely smell it on me all day. It is a kind of flora scent, a unique flora scent....sorry, can't describe well.
After using this, my scalp feels so clean and oil free! It's great! I also don't have to use my blow dryer on it for long because it makes my hair dry a lot faster. I can even not wash my hair everyday because this really cleans my hair very well and prevents it from getting so oily! It's great for lazy weekends when I'm not doing anything and I'm just studying or at home. =P
However, I can't use this everyday, if I do, then it starts drying out my scalp. So I end up using it about 3 times a week, switching it off with my "The Body Shop" Ginger Scalp Care shampoo. If I do use it more often, after I rinse it out, I will rub my Super Mild Hair and Scalp Mask into my scalp to prevent my scalp and hair from getting too dry.
Being winter, this was probably not the best time to try a shampoo that has a tendency to dry out my hair, but it is very good at deep cleansing my hair when I need to, and solved my oily hair from Head and Shoulders without me having to use tons of my other shampoo to rinse it out.
I also use this on rain days and snow days, so that my hair doesn't get damp and musty smelling.

I am looking forward to use this during the summer, where it is very hot and very humid, and I feel so gross and disgusting from the humidity. I think that this will be a lifesaver for me when the time comes. Also, this would be great when I go to Asian countries during the summer because those places are super hot and humid too, and I think it will help prevent my hair from getting too oily, damp, and sticky in that environment. (You can buy a travel tin for it too)
FYI, after using, take this out of the shower, or put it in a tupperware, if you leave it in the shower, the bar will dissolve and you will lose product very fast.
The only thing about this product is that it is kind of expensive. It is supposed to last for 2 months or so, depending how much and often I use it. Because I don't use it everyday, I think it'll last longer than that, so hopefully that makes it worth it. Overall, pretty impressed, it worked well without any skin irritation and I like the results! =D

Do I recommend this product?
If you have very oily hair or you are traveling or living in an area that is very humid, I highly recommend this product, but, please be aware it has a very strong fragrance. If you don't like things with strong fragrance, I don't recommend this, it will hurt your nose. =P But maybe you could just use less of it and it would not be as potent.

I hope that this review was helpful to you! Let me know if you have any questions or comments in the comment box below. Thank you for reading and I will see you later! =)
