Lush Jungle Conditioner Demo


If you have saw my recent Lush haul, you'll see that I got a sample of Jungle Conditioner.
I have never used a solid conditioner before so I was abit scared to purchase one.
I am using a solid shampoo which also looks like a bar soap, I'm finding it okay, Jungle how ever I found quite difficult to use, I'l tell you more of what I thought later on.

How to use Jungle Conditioner...

I have already used some of the sample two days ago, I used it a different way upon first application, I smoothed it along my hair as the website says, I found this awkward, so I got took abit in my hand, added water and made a paste, this took me forever, I ended up having clumps of conditioner in my hair, not good.
So this time I tried it a different way, hoping it would work as it was my last bit of sample I had left. I did a bit of research, watched a few YouTube videos..and came up with this method...

1. Take a small amount of jungle,about the size of 50p.


2. Find a empty clean, bottle, I used my old 100g snow fairy, smaller the bottle the better.
Once you have your bottle, fill it with boiling hot water from the kettle, not to the top leave enough room to allow the conditioner to mix when you shake it.


3. Take the jungle conditioner, and cut it into small pieces like above.

4. Place the pieces of conditioner you just cut and place them into the boiling water that's in your bottle.

7. Pop the lid back on the bottle and leave it to cool. I left mine for about 15 minutes. In this time the conditioner should start to melt.

6. Now its time to shake it up, I did so for about 3 minutes. If you can still see big pieces of the conditioner floating, shake it for abit longer.



7. I wanted my conditioner to be abit more liquidy so I added more water, by now it was near the top. I shook it once more then left it to cool down.


Then its ready to use! :)
You be the judge. You may want it thicker but hopefully you've got an idea how to use it. If you have any questions you can ask me :)

Now for the review...
I have only used Jungle twice as I stated.
The first time I used it I wasn't impressed at all, it was the way I applied it, so I gave jungle the benefit of the doubt.
Doing the above was so much better. This time jungle didn't leave my hair feeling heavy.
However- as my hair is now dry (I used this today) I cant say its worked for me, I feel no softness what so ever, its not one of the best conditioners
I have used, and the preparation is a hassle. but everyone is different, we all have different hair so it may work for you. hopefully the demo helps you.

As I said any more questions just ask me :)

Oh it all looks so complicated! Thank you for the review and demonstration :) I was actually going to sample this before but I may not bother - way too much hassle :p XOXO

The thought of solid conditioner freaks me out. Good idea though with making it liquid :)

Phoebe said...

I didn't like my first couple of uses with it either, i'm going to do this to see if i like it better though!

The lady at my Lush said it works great as a shaving aid, just rub it along your legs before you shave and it's supposed to stop cuts.

Just seems like a lot of hassle. All the preperation...

Hi new reader and just wanna say I love your blog, hope you'll check out mine.

To be honest I love using a shampoo and conditioner I've come to rely on, but I do like to experiment.
