Lush Jersey Bounce Shampoo Review


Oh how I have truly missed waffling on about beauty products. However, I'm just going to gloss over my blogging absence and get back into it with a rave/review for my latest hair care obsession. And it's from Lush.

Now I need to preface this by saying that Lush conditioners do absolutely naff all for my hair - I've never found one that made a positive impact. Perhaps because of that I had semi-written off the shampoo offering - Big aside - as not being capable of meeting my dry-as-a-thatched-roof hair's needs.

You know what's coming next right? Yes, hands up in resignation, I was wrong. So very wrong.

Over the last month, ever since the departure of my hair extensions (RIP), I have been doing a little experimentation. First I revisited Big and the salty texture lifted and added much welcome volume. Then I tried Rehab which magically cleansed my hair of all build up while still leaving it soft and shiny and then, well then I met Jersey Bounce.

To summarise, if I was a young person I would refer to this as BAE.


Formula-wise it's an interesting hybrid between Big - with the salty granules - and a conventional shampoo. If directly compared to Big I would say it's "wetter", easier to lather and comes with slightly finer granules.

Now experience-wise it's definitely a shampoo of the cleansing variety and one therefore that you will have to avoid using every day for fear of moisture stripping but the combination of lemon juice, sea salt and olive oil give hair a shine, bounce and softness that is hard to come by. You still need, without question, to equip yourself with a decent conditioner but such is the impact on my hair that I no longer rely on my Oribe Maximiser for a bit of blow-dry volume - this shampoo pretty much does it all. This is a miracle.


Top: Topshop / Jeans: ASOS / Shoes: Converse (this colour is sold out but similar here - Link!)  / Necklaces: Estella Bartlett (for the smiley face necklace - got it for about £18) and a Gorjana lariat that was majorly reduced in the ASOS sale

This is such a surprise to me because a) as mentioned earlier I was sceptical of Lush's shampoo offering and b) I have always viewed shampoo as a bit of a generic product where the difference between a £3 and a £30 was minimal. Well now, I'm not so sure.

Next I definitely want to properly look at the conditioners and see if there is anything I have crucially missed. I am actually planning on a trip to Dubai Mall tomorrow to stock up on Rose Bombshell (AMAZING) bath bombs, so if you think that I have been a total fool and missed a vital hair restorer then do let me know!

Aaaah so good to be back! :)

  1. If you haven't tried American Cream, that's the one I'd probably recommend for you, it delivers the most conventional conditioner feeling I think. Some people do just miss the silicones being absent in Lush conditioners though. Damaged hot oil treatment is also beautiful for dry hair and R&B (although with R&B you really do need just a tiny amount or you will instantly ruin your bounce.)

    1. I think you are right re: the silicones. I have tried a couple of them and they just make my hair feel dry but maybe that's just because I am not used to that coating? Thanks for the recommendations :) x

  2. yay you're back!! ^^ I've been so looking forward to an update and I'll definitely be checking out some lush shampoos, I don't have a problem with volume, but the Rehab shampoo you mentioned sounds like it would be a help with my hair ^^

  3. I will give Jersey Bounce a try, maybe that will help my strawy strands!
    Husband is thrilled to get it for me at the Lush store in Munich...not...
    He can get me a couple of bath bombs while he`s at it.

  4. I really enjoy R&B, but be careful to take only the tiniest amount and apply it to the ends only, otherwise it will weigh your hair down. But apart from that it is very nourishing!

  6. I'm so happy you are back! :) I am gonna have to pick this up in Dublin tomorrow, I LOVE Big shampoo so this looks like a must!

    Have you tried the Rose Argan body conditioner? It's one of my favourites for the shower after fake tanning! No need for body moisturiser/smells amaaaaazing/makes tan last longer.. so, so good! You just need to use a small amount otherwise it can feel a little greasy.

    I completely agree on the Lush conditioners - they have all disappointed so far. Verrrry picky with conditioners - the pink kerastase one for long hair is the best I've found so far but still on the hunt for "the one" :)

  8. Great to see you back blogging Laura, although I'm hooked on your daily Snaps! This shampoo sounds something of a miracle, wonder how it fares with coloured hair?

  9. Not a conditioner but the Lush, R&R Hair moisturiser is so good, my hair is curly and dry but it smooths and gives a piecey texture.

  10. I love Lush but have never tried their hair products - for some reason I never thought they'd be any good. Jersey Bounce is going straight on the list though! So good to have you back! x

  11. Hello! I am a Lush user specifically for hair. I wash my hair every three/four days, using Big and Retread with a dollop of their hair moisturiser after. If you want to smell like everything in Lush combined, try their hair moisturiser. I have a sample of American cream but I find it doesn't really do much to tame my tresses (damaged from too much treatment).

  12. I've always browsed the Lush haircare section like it was nothing special. Having tried a shampoo bar and being disappointed, that really set me off. But seeing that you absolutely love this newbie, I might consider giving it another go- after all, your hair type seems super similar to mine (thick, amirite?) x

  13. Lush is really an amazing brand. Unfortunately there is no shop very close to me, so for a often-used product as shampoo is, it would be a bit impractical.

  15. I like using shampoo, but using shampoo always will cause hair damage. Recently I have seen an article in coursework writing service related to the over use of shampoo. it is was just outstanding.
