Lush Curly Wurly Shampoo Review

I don’t know if I’d necessarily call my hair curly but it’s definately wavy and long with bouts of dryness and frizzies that keeps me on my toes to tame!

I normally like tugging it into a bun and slapping a hairband on to keep it nice and neat especially when I’m working! However, during the days that I have it down it’s difficult to tame it all and keep it from flying around my head like a runaway train!


In comes my very favorite shampoo, Lush Curly Wurly. A review for Lush Curly Wurly is long overdo so here’s your loving Muse finally bringing you my opinion on Lush’s Curly Wurly Shampoo!

Curly Wurly is an extremely thick shampoo which is made from various fresh ingredients minus preservatives. Even though the formula is lacking preservatives, the shampoo, in fact manages to weigh down hair considerably well. With hair that’s curly and or wavy you need the extra weigh of a good, thick shampoo to tame your hair and weigh it down which keeps it from frizzing up and out.

Although the formula does a successful job of weighing my hair down and keeping it both manageable and beautiful I do have to be careful how often I use this as it causes a bit of buildup and oiliness when used often.

The formula is a mix of chunky coconut and a base of avocado. The mix of the two fruits and additional oils creates a rather thick paste that smells like fresh coconuts and vanilla. Although the formula has huge shreds of coconut these wash out easily after dunking under your shower for a rinse.

The results of the product are outstanding especially if your hair is thick and dry. I’ve been using this for over 7 months and my hair is considerably more managable, less frizzy, and my curls are more defined.

At $19.50 USD it’s not the cheapest shampoo option around however since it suds up and foams up so well it’ll easy take you 3-4 months to get through an entire pot.

Some key points of the product is the fact that it creates amazingly gorgeous curls while removing frizz and dryness plus giving shine and definition to your hair. It contains no silicons which a plus for keeping your hair beautiful.

After several months of use my hair is less frizzy, softer without the dryness I normally experience, and just overall looks much better.

This is a conditioning shampoo so following up with conditioner is completely optional. Although my hair is very long and very wavy I successfully washed with Curly Wurly and didn’t have a problem with tangles after using without conditioner.

All in all I love this! It gets a hearty Muse Approval for purchase! The Muse loves Lush Curly Wurly and recommends giving it a try!

If you’re not wanting to commit to a full pot might I suggest heading to your local store and asking for a small sample to test out for yourself!

    I love Lush products. Especially hair ones, as they don’t weigh down hair, so they are awesome. Haven’t tried this, as I am currently going through a solid shampoo phase, but sounds great, so might give it a go next time round!

  • the Muse

    hi dancinggal!

    Ditto! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love solid shampoos ๐Ÿ™‚ Have you tried New! It smells like a piece of big red chewing gum hehe!

    Muse, I want to see you with your hair down. I bet you look like a fairy with really long hair ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve never used Lush but heard a lot of nice things about it.

  • Laura

    Oh I’m getting me some of this,
    Lush shampoos are the only thing I can use from there,
    so it’s easily justified!

    My hair is super thick and wildly curly when allowed to dry naturally.

    hi allison!

    Your comment has been deleted because honestly I have NO idea what you’re talking about.

    When you grow up and learn how to talk like a big girl please stop back and maybe we can have a discussion like adults, until that time your comments are in my spam box where they belong!

    so glad to have seen this review… been searching for a good shampoo for my curly hair and have been getting a little frustrated as nothing seems to make it look nice.

    Dropped by the nearest Lush store and was ecstatic that the Curly Wurly shampoo was on sale – Buy 1 tub and you get the second tub for free ๐Ÿ™‚

    Been using it for 2 days now and so far i am getting good results and I love the smell – i imagine the beach right away ๐Ÿ™‚

    • the Muse

      awesome Mina ;D so glad you’ve had success with it and what an awesome deal!

    Hi..came across your blog while looking for review of LUSH products and loved your reviews. I intend trying this shampoo for my wavy, dry frizz prone hair.Can you suggest some LUSH conditioner as well? I’ve used Retread but somehow just couldn’t take to the smell and it didn’t do much for me either. I found Jungle way better. Any recommendations you may have? Thanks!!
