Until I started to use Lush products, I never really paid too much attention to hair care. I simply used shampoo and conditioner I could find at the drugstore that I thought smelled good – in other words, not much thought went into my hair care product choices. Occasionally I’d pull out the ‘Head and Shoulders’ that sat under the sink until the few random times a year that I’d be the slightest bit flaky. Other than that, it was Herbal Essences and Suave for this chick!
It took a while for me to get into Lush hair care products. In fact, it wasn’t until the hair care campaign started that I had even really paid attention that part of the store. I bought my first Lush shampoo and conditioner at the Lush Burlington Mall – Ultimate Shine and Jungle. I fell in love with both, but as I started experimenting with different Lush shampoos decided that Ultimate Shine wasn’t for me. I cycled through quite a few solid shampoos before moving on to Cynthia Sylvia Stout. I loved it, but realized it was weighing my hair down a bit – making it limp. After a few more switches, I had settled on a Squeaky Green/Jungle combination that I thought was heavenly – until I decided to experiment some more when the Headcase hair care kits came out. I decided to try the ‘Balance + Repair’ headcase – I thought Jumping Juniper would be a good choice for me, and I hadn’t tried any of the other products in it either, and they all sounded nice. Little did I know how much I would fall in love with Rehab!
Rehab claims to be a perfect rehabilitator for over-processed or treated hair that is tired and limp. I don’t color my hair with dye or use heat on it too often, but I do have really, really thick hair that proves difficult to keep healthy. Rehab helps to keep it healthy-looking and moisturized, and adds a lot of shine. Out of all of the five or six shampoos I’ve tried from Lush, Rehab has proven to be the most effective in keeping my hair in good health and looking that way!
A Lush product wouldn’t be a true Lush product if it wasn’t for the fantastic ingredients that make the product do what it’s supposed to do! Rehab has olive oil as well as jojoba oil which help to strengthen and add flexibility to hair. Enzymes from fresh fruit juices as such as papaya, kiwi, and pineapple help to really cleanse the hair, while almond oils soften. Mango juice also helps to cleanse the hair, but also add strength while creating a great shine. Juniperberry oil balances the oils in the scalp – whether you have greasy or dry hair, and also improves hair condition. Peppermint oil is used as well, and the last two ingredients I’ll mention are the rosemary and lavender oils. Both are very soothing and pair well together to improve scalp health. Those are some ingredients, right? The mix of the fruit juices, invigorating peppermint oil, and a few other lovely scented ingredients make for a great smelling shampoo, that leaves your hair smelling just as good! I’ve heard a few say that the scent isn’t their favorite – I’ll agree, it’s not in my top few Lush product scents, but it’s not a bad smell and IT WORKS. (A small tangent) Soak and Float solid shampoo bar smells absolutely disgusting (in my opinion) but even Hannah mentioned in her Lush Tag video that it’s her favorite shampoo bar because it works so well for her hair! I consider the Rehab scent to be much more appealing than Soak and Float, and I find that once I condition my hair (with American Cream, Retread, or Jungle) my hair smells more like the conditioner than the shampoo!
For those that like a good lather, this shampoo will most definitely satisfy you. In fact, I’m impressed by how little shampoo I need to use to get a good lather! I feel like when I used to use drugstore shampoo, I’d have to use a whole handful to really get a good lather on my head. With this, I use probably a bit more than a quarter size amount and I get a great lather! Rehab brings my hair to life, making it shiny and smooth as well as moisturized and healthy-looking. I have NEVER gotten so many compliments on my hair! I have medium-length, fairly thick, somewhat wavy hair, and this shampoo does a great job of making the body of my hair look fabulous in terms of its shape, but also making it smooth and shiny… my hair hasn’t looked this good in YEARS. I pinky swear.
I was wary of trying Rehab at first – I liked the scent and the ingredients/promises sounded nice for my hair, but I knew it was one of the most (if not THE most) expensive shampoos that Lush has to offer. I figured it was nice to have this small bottle, but somewhat secretly hoped I’d love the Jumping Juniper just as much or more so that I wouldn’t be *tempted* to repurchase. The truth is – I don’t love Jumping Juniper OR any other shampoo I’ve tried NEARLY as much as I love Rehab! Sure, my wallet cringes at the price – but the results are so worth it in my opinion (as are most other ‘expensive’ Lush products)! All said and done, I will be repurchasing Rehab once my small bottle is gone. This bottle isn’t disappearing too quickly, and I’m really pleased with the results. I recommend Rehab to anyone with processed/dyed hair, as well as anyone that has trouble keeping their hair looking (and being) healthy.
Overall Rating: 9/10
I love the shampoo enough to give it a ten, but docked a point for its hefty price tag. I’m such a fan of solid shampoos – I wish that there was a dupe/alternative to Rehab that was a bit less expensive! I do believe you get what you pay for though, and you are DEFINITELY getting your money’s worth out of this shampoo!
