From the front of the bottle, ' Shake me then use me. Put strung out hair into Rehab. Featuring oils for extra strength, enzymes for cleansing, seaweed for softness, essential oils for detoxing and toning your scalp. Shake the bottle, wet hair and shampoo once, rinse thoroughly.'
How many times have you read a review of a shampoo that tells you that you only need to use a little? And how many times have you used said shampoo and found you actually have to use loads? Not with Rehab! I have never used so little shampoo as I do with this.
Rehab comes in a clear plastic bottle with a black label and lid. Each bottle also has a label on telling you when and by who the product was made and when the product should be used by. Each label contains a list of ingredients which are as follows:
Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
Sodium Alkyl Sulfate
Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate
Fresh Papaya Juice (Carica papaya)
Fresh Pinapple Juice (Ananas comosus)
Salt (Sodium Chloride)
Fresh Kiwi Juice (Actinidia chinensis)
Fresh Mango Juice (Mangifera indica)
Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis)
Olive Oil (Olea europaea)
Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis)
Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida)
Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita)
Rosemary Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis)
Juniperberry Oil (Juniperus communis)
Rose Absolute (Rosa centifola)
* Occurs naturally in essential oils
The liquid is a dull yellow in colour witha fruity smell, the consistency is what you would expect from a shampoo.
The enzymes in the fresh mango, pineapple, papaya and kiwi make great natural hair cleansers. Almonds soften your scalp and condition your hair. Olive Oil makes your hair stronger. Rosemary adds shine whilst mint stimulates your scalp.
I find my hair feels really clean after washing it in Rehab, the smell is pleasant and it leaves my hair in nice condition. Recommended to be used with Retread Conditioner (also by Lush). The most impressive factor for me, is how little you have to use.
Rehab is available in 100g, 250g or 500g bottles.
If you have never been fortunate to come across Lush before, you have been missing out. I will quote them to give you an idea of what type of shop they are:
