Q:Will this shampoo strip or fade unnatural colours from my hair like blue or purple?Asked on 7/24/2015 by Jess
A:It's been tested on chemically treated hair, but it works mostly with blondes to make hair brighter. Although, it's not suppose to strip any colours in you hair!Answered on 7/25/2015 by Anonymous
Q:I recently bought Blousey and left it in my bathroom and it became watery so I was wondering if it is supposed to stay inside a refrigerator or if this is a normal thingAsked on 6/14/2015 by Mayooh from Abu Dhabi, UAE
A:Blousey can tend to separate a bit over time. Just give it a stir and it should be good to go. No need to refrigerate!Answered on 6/20/2015 by Sal
A:I find it separates — I just stir it with my finger before putting it on my
head. It also WILL melt and become impossibly thin if it gets very hot. A
bit of time in the fridge will fix it and it shouldn't revert.Answered on 6/14/2015 by Anonymous
Q:How do you get this to lather? I have tried working it into a lather before applying to my hair, and during. Neither seems to work. Any suggestions? I want to like this shampoo.Asked on 5/27/2015 by Dani
A:Blousey doesn't have much of a lather to it, but instead has a creamy consistency. It takes a little bit of getting used to for some people, but it is a very effective cleanser even without the suds!Answered on 6/1/2015 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:Blousey doesn't lather like a "normal" shampoo. I apply to my roots only (to wet hair), scrub and wet hair again briefly then scrub again. It tends to lather more that way. The "suds" aren't what gets the hair clean from buildup however, so the lather isn't really a necessary function.
Side note - I have dyed, processed hair and I wash hair every other day. Once a week I use Ultimate Shine just to refresh my hair and scalp, and use American Cream every wash on tips only.Answered on 5/27/2015 by Anonymous
Q:Does this contain any chunks or small pieces in it? I have REALLY curly hair and anything can get caught in my hair and will tangle my hair, and will take forever to get out.Asked on 12/3/2014 by pikachuu from United States
A:Hi there!! Thanks so much for your question.
To answer that, no, it is chunk-free :)\
Hope this helps! :)
Shower on!Answered on 1/28/2015 by Anonymous
A:Hello, to the best of my knowledge; NO there were no big chunks. I had short hair at the time and would have noticed that. I used it a up, so knowing me... If there were problems with it, or it was inconvenient I would have stopped using it.
I have used most of the shampoos and conditioners and found them to all be really good, great smelling products!
Hope that it helps!

A:The container I bought does not have chunks or pieces. It's a little thick,
but I think it washes out nicely.Answered on 12/3/2014 by Anonymous
A:Chunk-free my curly haired friend! Even though it has some differently colored bits (I think from the banana) it's smooth as butter!Answered on 12/3/2014 by Anonymous
Q:Does this lather well and moisturize? I have natural 4c hair and my scalp gets nasty while the rest of my hair needs love and care.Asked on 12/1/2014 by pikachuu from United States
A:Hi there! Thanks for your question! Yes it lathers and moisturizes so well!Answered on 1/2/2015 by Anonymous
A:it moisturizes okay but does not later very much at allAnswered on 12/1/2014 by Anonymous
Q:I am actually curious as to whether or not there are chunks of anything in this? I want to get it, but can't stand using shampoo from a pot. I was using curly wurly, but wanted to transfer the shampoo to an old lush bottle I had instead, but the coconut bits got trapped inside the lid and were difficult... Would I have this problem with blousy?Asked on 8/3/2014 by kitty from minot, nd
A:Blousey doesn't contain any chunks in it, however, it is a very thick shampoo, which is why it comes in a pot rather than a bottle. You can definitely give it a try and see how it works for you, though!Answered on 9/25/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:Yes! There are chunks. It would definitely get stuck if you transferred it
to something with a smaller opening.Answered on 8/3/2014 by Anonymous
A:There are no bits, but it is rather thick. Not sure how well it would flow
from a bottle.Answered on 8/3/2014 by Anonymous
Q:I've noticed that Blousey is the best shampoo Lush offers for color treated hair, but what Lush CONDITIONER is recommended for color treated hair?
Thanks!!!Asked on 5/10/2014 by Liz from Daytona Beach, FL
A:Retread and Happy Happy Joy Joy tend to be great choices for most of us!Answered on 8/21/2014 by Brandy from LUSH
A:I use Blousey and follow up with Happy Happy Joy Joy, it does not strip my color and the scent is to die for. I also apply a tiny bit of R&B to towel dried hair.Answered on 5/13/2014 by Misia from OC
Q:I have really damaged hair from using too much heat and not conditioning it enough. I have lots of split ends and breakage and I have to cut it, and am trying to restrengthen it. I am using rehab shampoo and okra conditioner but I am wondering if Blousey would be a better shampoo for my hair? I saw that Rehab can be used as a clarifying shampoo, which normally strips your hair and it seems like that wouldn't help much to help the damage. Which should I be using?Asked on 1/27/2014 by maddieemily from Oklahoma
A:I usually have really dry, thin hair. I have been very happy with Blousey
shampoo. I feel like it nourishes my hair and makes it look shiny and
healthy. Hope this helps :)Answered on 1/27/2014 by Anonymous
A:Rehab or Blousey are both great choices for dry and damaged hair! The Rehab shampoo contains pineapple, papaya, kiwi and mango juices which are very cleansing and clarifying for the hair. Rehab also contains jojoba oil to soften and olive oil to strengthen which makes it an effective shampoo to treat damaged hair. The Blousey shampoo is made with fresh bananas, cocoa and cupuacu butters to nourish and soften and is definitely another excellent choice for damaged hair.Answered on 1/29/2014 by Anonymous
Q:I have a very sensitive scalp that breaks out with whatever type of shampoo/conditioner that I use, unless it's the no shampoo style that has been becoming more popular (involves only water and baking soda). However, I have moved and can no longer use that due to the climate I am in (it makes my hair SUPER oily), and this brand was recommended to me. Would this shampoo be the best one to use out of the options on here (i.e. will it work with my sensitive scalp)?Asked on 9/30/2013 by njty9101
A:This would be a great choice for your particular hair condition. It cleanses hair in the gentlest way, while locking in moisture with a huge helping of mashed-up fresh bananas, cocoa and cupuacu butters. These rich, nourishing and softening ingredients help bring damaged hair back to life and keep your locks in top shape.
Another product you would try is our Jumping Juniper shampoo bar. Lavender and rosemary work to soothe scalps and balance oil production to improve the condition of your hair.Answered on 12/8/2013 by Anonymous
A:Love this shampoo. It does NOT lather like most commercial shampoos. It will make the scalp tingle, as it gently cleans. I find my hair behaves better when I use it.

A:I would suspect it would — this is very mild and preservative free because
of the bananas. If I were you, I'd try to isolate the precise ingredient
that is making you break out. For some people it's the sodium laureth
sulfate that's very common in shampoos, and in other people it's the sodium
benzoate or potassium sorbate. From what you've said, I'd guess the first .
.. . so try out shampoos without those and see how it goes.Answered on 9/30/2013 by Anonymous
Q:This doesnt appear to have the preservatives other shampoos listed do, which seems great, but it makes me wonder how long the shelf life is?Asked on 9/29/2013 by Waywardspirit from Bay Area
A:The shelf life for the Blousey Shampoo is 14 months from the time it was made. The reason that this product does not contain preservatives is because it is so jammed pack full of delicious organic bananas it does not require any! Happy shampooing!Answered on 11/15/2013 by Anonymous
Q:Blousey was recommended for my permed hair after asking if the Jumping Juniper bar would be ok to use. I have extremely oily hair & Jumping Juniper has be the only shampoo that's ever helped. Will Blousey create a bigger oil problem??Asked on 8/21/2013 by Heather from United States
A:Blousey is light, but very moisturizing. It shouldn't create more oil, but it may not address the oiliness on your scalp as effectively as something like Jumping Juniper or citrus-based shampoos like I Love Juicy.
For permed hair, Blousey would help re-hydrate the hair after the treatment, but you can also try using your Jumping Juniper still!Answered on 9/25/2013 by Anonymous
A:I have never had my hair feel oily after using Blousey..... However, my
hair isn't permed, just regularly colored also not usually oily. I
absolutely love Blousey, it's not stripping and the fragrance is fabulous.Answered on 8/21/2013 by Anonymous
A:No Bousey will not make your hair feel oily. It makes your hair feel so naturally clean. I too have oily hair and it is color treated. Great product!!!
Sent from my iPhoneAnswered on 8/21/2013 by Anonymous
A:If you're having success with Jumping Juniper I would stick with that.
If you're longing for a change, I would try BIG instead of Blousey.
Blousey has bananas and is very creamy and I believe would contribute to
your oil problem
BIG, on the other hand, is mostly sea salt, which will mop up oil and
dirt very nicely. Also has a lovely smell.
Best of luck,

Q:What is the best conditioner to use with Blousey on color treated hair?Asked on 7/18/2013 by Ginger the red head from United States
A:Retread left my hair very greasy within 24 hours and intolerably dirty feeling after 48 so this is not the right conditioner for my hair after using Blousey. I've started using Happy Happy Joy Joy and it's much better. I don't wash my hair daily so that could be why Retread was so unpleasant to use.Answered on 9/11/2013 by Ginger the red head from United States
A:We'd recommend the Retread if your hair is on the dry side. It's very nourishing and gentle.Answered on 8/21/2013 by Megan from LUSH Direct
A:Retread. Great duo to get hair back in shape.Answered on 8/6/2013 by Adventurer from Seattle WA
Q:I dont have colored or bleached hair , but it is very dry , should i use blousey or curly wurly ? .Asked on 4/21/2013 by Recent lush discouverer from Rochester , NY
A:Both are great choices for restoring moisture to dry hair, but Blousey may be your best bet in this case as it's so focused on adding moisture and gently nourishing the hair!Answered on 9/24/2013 by Brandy from LUSH
A:I don't color or bleach my hair either. I couldn't stand Curly Wurly - the bits of coconut in it took FOREVER to rinse out of my curly hair! I highly recommend Blousey - it is very moisturizing. The smell was a little weird in the jar but not noticeable on my hair afterwards.Answered on 8/21/2013 by Laura the Librarian from Little Elm, TX
Q:Hi! My hair is not damaged, over-processed, colored, bleached or fragile. My hair is thick, and curly, and therefore needs lots of moisture! I am attracted to Blousey because of the bananas. I am wondering if I can use this product for its moisturizing properties, or is it only for problematic hair? If it is, what shampoo would you reccomend?Asked on 1/21/2013 by Anonymous
A:Blousey is a fantastic choice for thick, curly hair as well so you can absolutely feel free to give it a try! The bananas are very nourishing and hydrating so it is a fantastic choice for your hair type.Answered on 8/14/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
Q:How often can you use this shampoo? My color treated shampoo I used previously could only be used once a week.Asked on 12/23/2012 by Anonymous
A:Blousey is very gentle, and can therefore be used as often as you wish!Answered on 8/20/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:I would say as many times as you want. This shampoo is not very harsh on the hair at all. It won't strip any of your color. I use color and mine is still vibrant as when I first colored it. I only shampoo my hair once a week but I condition or "co-wash" about 3-4 times a week. Just make sure after using this shampoo you still follow up with a good conditioner.Answered on 4/9/2013 by Honeybshawty from Denver, CO
