Haircare: Lush Shampoos Overview & Review Part 2

If you missed my previous post about Lush shampoos, please click here to read about Big and Godiva and to hear my thoughts about them. This time, my focus is on Daddy-O and I Love Juicy from Lush.

My hair has been very dry and damaged previously due to a lot of bleaching, coloring and by heat styling tools. Now my hair is much better and I have not colored or bleached my hair for about 2 years. The color is a natural medium blonde which in the summer time when exposed to the sun turns a lighter shade.

Daddy-O Shampoo:

Daddy-O is a shampoo designed for blondes or people with greyish hair, who want to visibly lighten or brighten up their hair colors. Blondes have a tendensy to have yellow streaks or tones in their hair, which is not always very attractive. To brighten up their hair color and to get rid of the brassiness, one uses purple pigments in a shampoo to counteract the yellowness. Daddy-O is such a shampoo.

I started using Daddy-O a couple of weeks ago to brighten up my hair color as I wanted more of a cool tone to my hair. Now I use it about once every other week to maintain the results. I leave it on for about 5 minutes to let it work its job and then rinse it out.
I must admit that I haven't really seen much results myself, but other people have commented on my hair color and they say that it is very nice. So I still use this shampoo, not very often, but I do it to keep the results other people say that they have noticed.
I have to tell you that I do not like the smell of this shampoo at all. It says on the Lush website that it smells like parma violets, which I have never even heard of before, but I don't really like it. And the smell lingers in your hair, even though you use a conditioner afterwards. Which is something to think about before buying this product. 


Lush I Love Juicy Shampoo:

I Love Juicy is a shampoo designed for oily hair types or people who use a ton of products in their hair and need a deep clean to get rid of all the residue. It contains fruit enzymes that dissolve and clean away oils, dirt and product build up and seaweed to maintain softness.

I will say that this shampoo really gets my hair extremely clean and I can go days without washing it again, but the things is that it can dry my hair out pretty easily if I am not careful. I do not have particularly greasy hair, but I still use this if I know that I have long workdays ahead of me and I don't want to spend time washing my hair too often. I also use this when I have been using a lot of hairspray etc to get it all off.
If you have really greasy hair, then this shampoo is for you. I cannot use this more than once a week myself, but it really does work in keeping my hair in shape.
Be careful though if you do not have greasy hair, because you will need a good conditioner afterwards to put on the ends of your hair.
The smell of this shampoo is supposed to be very fruity and fresh, but to me it smells exactly like applecider. It does not smell bad at all, just strange for a shampoo :) But the scent does not linger in my hair, so even if you do not like the smell of it, you will not walk around with an apple cider scent in your hair afterwards.
