WHAT! Big conditioner is a thing?! I'm sad that it's light though. I find veganese too light.

On another note, I just rouge henna'd my hair the other day and on the third day it is redder than before, even though I only left it on for about four hours. I love that shiitake.

I've got Brun on at the moment, but it's an ancient block I found in a chest of drawers. I hope it's going to come out okay, I think it's several years old!

...i couldn't find anything on the lush website, but then i googled and found this blog post about big conditioner (in switzerland?), so maybe it's brand new and on its way to north america? fingers crossed! according to this blog post it's a solid conditioner like jungle, and it's vegan.

Yeah, some new hair products were released recently, and Big conditioner is one of them!

I don't know how I feel about trying out another Lush conditioner. Jungle smelled great but it killed my hair and Veganese is way too light for my hair. I wish they had a better range for vegan conditioners (more than just light conditioning). I think this would be a product I would definitely want samples of before buying.

Happy Happy Joy Joy is also a new vegan conditioner/hair perfume (which Lush are using to justify the outrageous price!). I haven't smelt it yet, kind of afraid to in case I love it, but its supposed to be for all hair types. It is crazy expensive though. I am really sad that Creme Anglaise is being discontinued, it's one of my favourite smells in the world.

I have been disappointed with the lush conditioners too and we were talking about it at the store and they told me to try R&B which is a leave-in. I really like it!!!! I paired it with Trichomania and it seems like the perfect combo for my thin, fine, brittle, wavy hair. I also got the comforter bath melt and I only used a quarter of it and had an absurd amount of bubbles. It was really fun and very moisturizing.

Yup, two new Vegan conditioners. Big drives my hair crazy but Happy Happy Joy Joy is pure love.

We've just started planning our World Vegan Day event. Last year we had loads of amazing vegan food, this year I think we'll do a staff challenge with the energy/water/resources saved by going vegan for a day/week/month.

what, really?! i wonder if it's because it's so expensive. i haven't even had a chance to buy it yet; i was "saving" it for winter since it's a heavier moisturizer (and i was hoping to get LUSH gift cards for christmas, heh).

...aaand, another reason the mascara packaging is not so great: it breaks if you drop it on the bathroom floor. :|

Lush tomorrow!

I'm going to get a small chunk of the big conditioner to give it a go. I usually do a treatment once a week for my hair so a light conditioner might be fine.

I just looked up to see if there is a shop at Tyson's, and there is. I'll try to go next month and investigate some Aveda replacements. Hopefully it is near enough to a place to park. I usually avoid the mall due to the walking.

Big Conditioner? fork yes. I love the Big shampoo! Although if it's light it might not be any good for my knotty rats tails!

Home with my bag of Big. Looking forward to putting on the henna tomorrow. My roots are a total disgrace.

Went to LUSH today, I was trying to stay away since I'm still well stocked on "Dark Angels", "Coal Face" (I love those two, I'm a greasy person), "I love Juicy" (I use that shampoo by itself and when i'm done brushing and drying my hair my usual flat gross hair actually has volume), and "Sweetie Pie" (It makes me feel like i'm a fruity teenager). So obviously didn't really NEED anything, but they have "The Enchanter" bath bomb out. I liked the smell just in the shop and then the girl told me it smells like apples when thrown in bath, I'm soo excited to see if this is true tonight.

I've been using Karma solid schampoo and it's not really that great for my hair. It smells really good but it doesn't make my hair feel very fresh. If I was it in the evening, I feel like I have to wash it again next afternoon, and I don't have particularly greasy hair from the beginning. I might buy something else and then use this when I start my internship in December at a place where I will have to shower and wash my hair everyday after work.

The big conditioner really doesn't do anything for me. It is far too light. It is probably only suitable for people who have fairly greasy hair.

That's unfortunate to hear. I have really dry hair. I kind of wish I had super greasy hair because that's generally easier to treat with vegan products!

For the first time in my life I feel like being a greasy person can be a good thing...

Yeah, I have normal on top but I have damaged ends from bleach abuse. The Big didn't even touch the hair at the ends. It wasn't even enough for the top of my head. Waste of a tenner :(

It is henna time sometime this week.

I've been using Big shampoo and I love it. I actually got annoyed because I washed my hair at the gym (with their shampoo) and the next day it was a big grease mess. I used Big and I can go 3 even 4 days without washing and I don't have to do a double shampoo.

I'm also hennaing/using Big shampoo and I can totally go up to four days without washing, and even then my hair isn't greasy! It totally justifies the price of the shampoo.

I think one my I Love Juicy is gone i'm gonna have to try this Big. I'm a grease ball, so I love shampoos that keep from showing that.

I can get 3 days out of the shampoo if I am not working but when I'm working I only get 2 days. I think it is from all the pulling my hair in frustration!

I just bought a bottle of the new Twilight shower gel. I don't normally like flowery smelling things but this is lovely, and it has glitter in it!
