Our most soothing, calming and caring shampoo bar for dry, itchy and irritated scalps. For the scent sensitive: cade oil cleanses and soothes, but has a strong campfire smell.

How to use

Lather this scalp soother directly onto wet hair or between your hands, rinse and condition as normal.

Smells like

Unexpectedly peppery with a warm resinous belly, like a campfire crackling at night.



How to store

Leave on the side in a cool dry place, ideally one of our cork pots, ready for when you need it.

No difference

I was so excited to try this product because I struggle with dandruff & itchy scalp. The old formula definitely smelled horrible, but the new formula is much better. However, it did not help with my dandruff - in fact it has made my scalp more dry. I wish it wasn't so. REHAB is a much better alternative!


Good basic shampoo, I find you definitely need to condition after and I have fine/oily hair. I find it to be quite clarifying but is great to only wash hair every second day! Not a big fan of the fragrance. My husband likes it. Would buy again.

Yuck, stunk out my house and had to go in the bin

I was recommended this product in store as I have a sensitive scalp. Honestly the worst thing I’ve had from lush. Used it once, wash was okay. But the smell of the bar stank out the house so much I ended up binning it. ( I tried keeping in in a box and stuff first but I never wanted to open it to use the bar cause of the smell) I had smelt it in store but it wasn’t till it was home I found out how potent it was.

This is keeping me afloat

LUSH's haircare is really underrated. While it is more costly than something you'd find in regular shops, my scalp and hair have never been healthier. I use the Soak and Float because my scalp is dry af and has 99 problems, but this shampoo aint one. Its gentle but cleans my head thoroughly, and it smells great.

Lovely clean shampoo for blonde hair

I really love this shampoo, it's simple, smells nice (but not too strong) and is really good for my naturally blonde long hair as it doesn't leave any residues, doesn't dull my blonde and doesn't dry my hair out. Winner. I have happily gone through quite a few of these bars now but please Lush, take out all the "bits"! The petals and black bits. I'd happily pay more for just a pure shampoo bar. The petals get stuck in my hair and add nothing to the overall effect (in fact, just add to my irritation of constantly trying to pick them out of the bar.) The actual shampoo is lovely though :-)
