A Stimulating Summer Lush Haul!

Hi, everyone! Hope your weekend is off to an amazing start. A couple of dilemmas face me currently: a) it is ridiculously hot here in Toronto (like 34C/93F hot) and b) I've been noticing some hair thinning around my scalp over the past few months, likely due to the fact that I wear and sleep in tight buns a bit too often. Given these quandaries, I've been extra motivated of late to keep fresh and take better care of my hair (i.e., stop balding, pronto). During a recent trip to Lush I found just the trio of products to make these goals a reality! 

I am a sucker for anything colourful and minty, so Lush's Dirty Springwash called to me in a serious way. It has three different types of mint for a super cool, tingly effect and also touts sea salt and glycerin to soften. It is wonderfully refreshing and so perfectly amazing to combat this silly summer heat. Plus it's bright blue and looks so pretty in my shower! Next up, I snagged a Shampoo Bar in New! I've been super pleased with their solid shampoos in the past (so cute and convenient), so was eager to try their version for thinning hair. New! is ultra stimulating, packed with herbs and spices like cinnamon, clove, rosemary, nettle, and mint to stimulate the scalp and encourage hair regrowth. It is so satisfyingly spicy, creates a great lather, and leaves my hair extra shiny! Finally, we have the most luxurious item of the three- the Roots Hair Treatment. This pot of goodness is designed to be used pre-shower and is formulated for those with thin, fine, limp hair. It is stimulating on the scalp, thanks to peppermint, and also hydrates and softens with honey and olive oil. I have tested this once so far and boy is it nice! It feels so tingly and cooling on my scalp and left my hair super soft and bouncy after my shower. It's truly a treat to use! I cannot yet speak to the long-term hair-growing prowess of New! and Roots, but I will certainly keep you posted! It's great to know, though, that while I'm waiting for my folicles to do their thing (and for these temperatures to chill the eff out), these products will be absolute pleasures for the senses in the meantime :)

Have you tried anything from Lush lately? Favourite summertime hair and body care products? Favourite hair care or other tricks for re-growing hair?

Thanks so much for stopping by! xo



  1. I know what you mean about the weather!! Some days I get into my car, and have to step out again because it's just so darn hot!

    Your haul is making me want to go back to Lush and pick up a few items! I'm kind of interested in going back to using shampoo bars again!

  2. It was really hot yesterday. I felt like I was going to melt. Great Lush haul! I haven't been to a Lush in awhile. The shampoo bar looks interesting.

  3. I'm in the same predicament! I always sleep in a tight bun which I know is awful for my hair/scalp but when it's so hot it's hard to have your hair any other way xx
