Lush Jersey Bounce Shampoo Review

I'd already tried (and loved) Lush Big Sea Salt Shampoo, so it was only natural that I was going to be giving its salty sister, Lush Jersey Bounce a round in the shower. I like Jersey Bounce, I really do. I just don't love it and would take Big over this any day. Here's the low down.

Jersey Bounce is a lemony-yellow sea salt based shampoo infused with honey and linseed that promises big, bountiful locks. The addition of fresh organic lemon juice gives the shampoo a tart citrus scent and Fair Trade olive oil brings the shine. 
The sea salt shampoo also contains a bit of free range egg. When I was buying it the other week I asked one of the staff whether I should expect scrambled eggs in my hair. They laughed and said no one's ever asked that before but I thought it was a perfectly reasonable question - hot water plus raw egg usually results in a cooked egg situation, doesn't it? Anyway, I don't really know how but Jersey Bounce does not scramble in your hair, so you can rest easy.

The salt granules in this shampoo are a little finer than the ones in Big and the formula in general is 'wetter'. It does lather up well and a little scoop goes a long way and does the job on my below-shoulder length hair.
Jersey Bounce also does give the hair body, volume and shine- just not quite as much as Big. It's a nice shampoo and I'm sure many people prefer it over Big but the scent of Big makes it the clear winner for me.
Jersey Bounce Sea Salt Shampoo is available from Lush for £15 for 300g and £26 for 600g. ETA* Jersey Bounce no longer contains egg (edited Nov 2019).

  1. I keep meaning to try this one. I love Big so it's a shame this doesn't live up to it, but I'll give it a go anyway
