In another look at simple stuff that makes my life more enjoyable, today I want to tell you about a shampoo I'm really enjoying: the "Seanik Shampoo Bar" by LUSH.
Every time I'm in San Francisco or Cambridge, I treat myself to a visit to the LUSH store and try to pick out a new product to try. My last experiment was to pick up this gorgeous little solid shampoo. Honestly, I was initially sceptical. The price ($9.95 for a 1.9 oz bar) seemed higher than what I typically spend on my hair. Also, I tend to be a shampoo shifter - I don't typically use one particular brand. I also wondered if what looked like a solid (albeit pretty) blue lump could really lather sufficiently to cleanse my oily and very thick hair.
The nice thing about actually being able to shop IN a LUSH store is that they will test the product with you. No, I didn't actually wash my hair in the store - but the associate who helped me did instruct me on how to use the shampoo, how little it truly took to clean my hair (which helped take the cost factor out of the equation) and how nice the Seanik smells.
I've been very happy with this product. It is compact in size, which truly helps combat some of the bottle clutter that seems to happen with three of us family members sharing one shower. I also purchased shampoo bar tin ($3.95) to store the Seanik bar - that will be able to be reused in the future and was a good investment to keep the shampoo from disintegrating. I will say that somehow the tin has gotten dented, so I can't seem to get the lid back on it, but it's still working well to protect the shampoo.
If you have a LUSH store nearby, drop in and treat yourself to a bit of refreshment. If not, you can check out Seanik and the other LUSH products at the LUSH website.
