After trying a few of the Lush solid shampoo bar, I thought I might try their solid conditioning bars too. I tried their purple one first, but that was not nourishing enough and I abandoned the idea for a while. But then I discovered the green one called Jungle and my opinion on the Lush Solid Conditioning Bars was definitely changed.
Lush Jungle Conditioner
A Lush solid conditioner retails for €10, but you may find you have to purchase a tin to keep it clean as well when you’re not using it. Because this solid conditioner does not come with any packaging other than a paper wrap and that is not great if you want to use this in your shower. In my experience, the more you keep this dry after use, the longer it will last, which I will explain in more detail below.
So essentially this conditioning bar is free from any sort of packaging apart from the paper wrap. It is handy to purchase one of the tins to make sure you can keep the product for a longer period of time. If you don’t it will just disintegrate as the water will break apart the product. I therefore dry the bar and the container after every single use and that way I can assure it stays usable for as long as possible.

So what this product is supposed to do is nourish your hair as much as possible. It contains fruits, oils and cocoa butter. There are ingredients in it help your hair with shine and looking healthy. As you can see from the ingredients list there is avocado in there, figs, bananas, passionfruit, kumquat and kiwi fruit. If that doesn’t sound like a good concoction, then I don’t know what else is?
What It Does For My Hair
The nourishing properties are definitely noticeable straight away. I like to rub it between my hands, then on my ends, but I also wrap my hair around the bar and apply the product that way. It doesn’t really foam or suds up, which took some getting used to. I always let my conditioner sink into my hair until the end of my shower before rinsing it out and when I do that, my hair feels more hydrated and less dry.
Pros & Cons
So there are definitely pros and cons to this conditioner. It doesn’t last very long as I used this up quite quickly. My other negative to this is the packaging or lack there of. It just means more work than most people might like. The positives definitely outweigh the negatives though. This works well, smells great and it has been one of the best conditioneres I have used in years.
Lush Jungle Solid Conditioner was the first of its kind and it made me want to try more. That is why I am now trying the Big conditioner, which has some other properties to this. I have only used that a few times so I haven’t made up my mind about it just yet. But the Lush Jungle conditioner is definitely one I will go back to once I have used up this one.
