Although I prefer the solid shampoos from Lush, this is the only one of their liquid shampoos I'll use. It's great for adding body and a bit of weight to hair. I've waist length curly hair and it helps to separate and define the waves in my hair as well as stopping them from going frizzy without adding too much weight. It's so good for curly hair that it's one of a very few number of shampoos I'll recommend. This is something I always keep in my bathroom because it's so good. Effectiveness Lathers well enough, but the main thing is adding weight and body to hair. My hair is never frizzy when I use this and I get complimented on the curls and how soft it is afterwards. Scent I love the smell, but if you don't like the smell of stout then it might not be for you. The smell is nice, but it's not overpowering and it doesn't linger too much so you don't need to worry about people asking if you've had a few drinks before coming in to work!
