Shower Staple: LUSH Rehab Shampoo

LUSH Rehab Shampoo

Keratin shampoos and conditioners, hair masks, styling my quest to tame my tresses, I gravitate towards anything with the words "moisturizing," "smoothing" and "frizz-fighting" in the name, but all these formulas have resulted in product build-up that leaves my strands dull and my roots limp. Luckily for this beauty blogger, LUSH Rehab Shampoo ($13.95-39.95, various sizes) is just what the hair doctor ordered.

LUSH describes Rehab Shampoo as a restorative formula that revives tired hair after bleach, dye, and styling products have done their damage, but at its core this is a mild yet effective clarifying shampoo with lots of lather. The active enzymes in the formula's fruit juices gently cleanse and remove product build-up, a mix of moisturizing oils (jojoba, extra virgin olive oil, almond) smoothes strands, and a blend of herbal oils revives the scalp. The result is soft, refreshed hair sans build-up, on which my moisturizing/smoothing/frizz-fighting products can work their magic once again.

Although it's considerably gentler than other clarifying shampoos I've used, this is still a clarifying formula, which means it's best if used occasionally. Use it too often and it'll dry out hair—which kind of defeats the whole "rehab" thing, doesn't it?


  1. I used to work in Lush and Rehab was my go to shampoo..
    I have extremely oily hair so it worked wonders on it, I usually have to wash my hair every second day and when I used this shampoo I could get away with washing it twice a week.. It would still look shiny and clean with no signs of greasiness..
    Thanks for reminding me about this wonderful product..
    I'll definitely have to pick up some more!


    1. I'd never thought of using Rehab for oily hair. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Sounds like a great product! I need to get myself something like that! Great post xox
