Q:I can't seem to get the clumps out of my hair they tend to stay there all day and it's infuriating, they won't rinse out even after I use conditioner they stay in I spend around 20 minutes when I get out of the shower to pick them out. help.Asked on 7/23/2015 by Carolyn. from Greenville, MI
A:Curly Wurly has real fresh coconuts mixed right in by hand. I'd recommend taking a comb through your hair once it's dry if any little bits get left behind.Answered on 7/26/2015 by Alexander from Lush Direct
A:Hi! Yeah that was my main issue with this product. However, out of sheer laziness I found once my hair dries all of the chunks fall out on their own! I have curly/wavy hair! Hope that helps!

Q:Is this shampoo good for dreadlocks?Asked on 7/21/2015 by Helen from Seattle, WA
A:I would highly discourage using this for dreads purely because it has little chunks of coconut in the formula that would get all stuck in your dreads. I would recommend looking into Rehab and No drought! And do not forget to dry your dreads completely when you are done!Answered on 7/22/2015 by Jess from LUSH Direct
Q:1. Can I use this product if my hair isn't curly. 2. Will using this product make my hair curlAsked on 7/16/2015 by Joey from Troy mi
A:Yes, you can use this shampoo, but it will not make your hair curly!Answered on 7/17/2015 by Anonymous
A:Honestly I don't think so. It's very dense and chunky is how I would describe it but really don't think it would make your hair curly. I do know that if you don't like a product they will let you return it and they will also give you samples of anything! That's what I would do. Get a sample and see what you think. Lush has great products!

Q:Should I use a conditioner with this product? I have thick oily curly hair.Asked on 7/4/2015 by SeaShell from Elizabeth City, NC
A:Not necessarily! If you feel that your hair is a bit dry after shampooing, try using a light conditioner like Veganese, but if you feel that your hair feels great without the conditioner then just use the shampoo. :)Answered on 7/9/2015 by Kels from LUSH Direct
A:Curly wurly is so moisturizing that you don't need to moisturize every
time. I would suggest if you have oily hair using a light conditioner like
veganese below your ears can help soften. You also do not need to shampoo
every time you shower! It feels contradictory but the more you shampoo the
more oil your hair will produce.Answered on 7/4/2015 by Claire from Portland
Q:I am a swimmer with fine, wavy hair so I need a shampoo that will moisturize my hair without weighing it down. Is this a good shampoo to get for my lifestyle? Also about how long will this last?Asked on 6/5/2015 by Megan
A:Seanik shampoo bar might be a better fit. It is super softening, with vitamin rich seaweeds, makes hair shiny with lemon oil and won't weigh fine hair down, even building body with sea salt!Answered on 6/7/2015 by Emily from LUSH Direct
A:Curly wurly sounds just what you're looking for then!
It will moisturize your curls without weighing your hair down.
A tub lasts me about three months - but I don't shampoo my hair everyday.

A:I love this shampoo because it moisturizes but still leaves my hair bouncy
and light. It also smells amazing and tames my frizz. I would recommend it
to anyone. I usually can have a jar of this go for twice as long as the
regular shampoo bottle because you don't need to use very much to get great
results.Answered on 6/5/2015 by Anonymous
Q:This product was recently suggested by a family member. My question is does this product work well on African American hair specifically with a 4b/4c wave pattern. If not what would be your suggestion??Asked on 6/5/2015 by tiffp from burlington, nj
A:Curly Wurly is designed to be very nourishing and moisturizing for all hair types, frizzy hair in particular.Answered on 6/7/2015 by Alexander from Lush Direct
Q:Can this shampoo be used daily, or are there specific day(s) I have to use it in a week?Asked on 6/3/2015 by Gayle the Researcher
A:Everyone's hair is different, so we don't like "prescribing" how often to use a certain product. Let your hair do the talking, and see how it feels when you use it in different amounts.Answered on 6/7/2015 by Sal
Q:I am a swimmer and have wavy, dry/damaged hair that can be frizzy at times. I have been looking for a good mousturizing shampoo that wouldn't weigh down my hair, would you recommend this or is there a better shampoo for me?Asked on 6/2/2015 by Megan
A:Yes! This shampoo is one of our richest shampoo's, it's packed with lots of nourishing ingredients that lock in moisture. With the coconut oil to moisturize dry, frizzy hair, and protein-rich fresh eggs and hand mashed avocado butter to hydrate, add shine and eliminate frizz. This would be a lovely shampoo for you!Answered on 6/2/2015 by Anonymous
Q:I see that this product uses sulfates. I generally stay away from shampoos with sulfates, but how does this effect the product?Asked on 3/7/2015 by Margaret from Philadelphia, PA
A:It helps the product lather better into hair, which helps clean hair with less product as well.Answered on 3/21/2015 by Pauline
Q:Since there is so much moisture raved about in this product, should I even use conditioner?Asked on 11/24/2014 by Colleen from Chicago, IL
A:It's completely up to you! It depends on your hair, but you could always use a more lightweight conditioner with this shampoo.Answered on 11/25/2014 by Serena from LUSH Direct
A:I do because I have found that curly hair needs more conditioner, not
less. BTW, while this product is very nice and interesting because it's
like washing your hair with a Mounds bar (sans chocolate coating of course)
I think that Trichomania has even more conditioner in it than this one.
Less expensive as well.Answered on 11/25/2014 by Nanote from Upstate NY
Q:i have very curly and hard to manage hair (were talking hair straightener every day). i dont like my hair at all and i was thinking i might like it more if this shampoo made it less frizzy maybe? i guess my question is will it do this? and another thing is that i dont want to add volume to my hair -how volumizing is it really?Asked on 8/5/2014 by kristyn from north carolina
A:Curly Wurly will work to help tame frizz, and add bounce to your curls without adding volume. Most people find that it makes their curls more manageable because of the moisture it adds to the hair!Answered on 9/25/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:Try a sample at a LUSH store.Answered on 8/7/2014 by Anonymous
Q:My one concern with this product is that I'm having a very difficult time getting this shampoo to lather! When I was in the shop the sales girl showed me that it did lather up nicely, but I'm not having the same effects at home. Any advice on how to lather this shampoo up? I feel like my hair is not getting clean without the lather!Asked on 7/22/2014 by Amy
A:Since it is coconut based it doesn't foam like regular shampoo. I would take a small amount and work it throughout your hair and even though it won't lather as much, it will still clean your hair!Answered on 9/25/2014 by Anonymous
A:Since Curly Wurly is a coconut oil based shampoo it doesn't foam as
Intensely as a traditional shampoo. Wet your hair until soaking wet.
Literally plop a good amount on the top of your head. Start working the
shampoo in while getting the hair under the flow of water. It will not
heavily foam like you are used to. And really work all the coconut out of
the hair with a thorough rinse.Answered on 7/23/2014 by Anonymous
A:Hi my name is Victoria, I`m sorry your having trouble with your new
shampoo. I have personally used Curly Wurly, and I`ve had the same
difficulties. What I do is apply a small amount (about a nickel size) to
different parts of my hair at a time while adding water to help the
lathering process. I`ve even heard of someone premixing the water into
Curly Wurly using a mixer before hopping in the shower. I hope this helps.
:)Answered on 7/22/2014 by Anonymous
A:Make sure you are using way more water than product--I had this problem
with mine and it felt like it was leavin a film in my hair. I crush mine
between my hands and then rub them together under the shower stream--and
then if that's not enough water I cup some n my palm. Hope this helps!Answered on 7/22/2014 by Anonymous
Q:I'm trying to grow my hair out..is this a good product for that? If not, what would be a good product for that?
ThanksAsked on 7/22/2014 by Jesse from Grand Rapids Mi
A:Curly Wurly will keep your hair strong and moisturized as it grows out, so it is definitely a great choice to keep your locks in shape as you work on getting some length!Answered on 9/25/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:I would say the Curly Wurly would support keeping your hair really healthy
during a grow out - I don't know that it would stimulate growth. But, I can
say if you have naturally curly hair like I do, this product is amazing and
gives a lot of moisture and shine! The texture of the product stumped a lot
of people in the reviews but I find if I just get a dime size amount in my
hand, add a little water and then massage it in to very wet hair I don't
have a problem. Occasionally, if I am washing my after a few days of not
shampooing, I find this doesn't lather in a way I find satisfying. I don't
know if that means the product isn't working the same but I always just
wash it twice.
Good luck!Answered on 7/22/2014 by Anonymous
A:I do have long hair, but I mainly use this because my hair is very thick
and curly. Curly Wurly is pretty gentle and keeps the frizz away but
enhances my curls. I've been using it for years and highly recommend it.
It smells great, and keeps my hair soft.Answered on 7/22/2014 by Anonymous
A:Typically, no external hair product will actually make your hair grow
faster. A healthy scalp is important of course, and I'd recommend pretty
much any Lush hair product to improve your hair health in that respect.
Since hair is mostly made out of protein, that's why eating meats, beans,
legumes, and milk are important for hair growth. Good luck!Answered on 7/22/2014 by Anonymous
Q:do you have to keep this in the fridge??Asked on 7/20/2014 by Elizabeth
A:No need to keep Cyurly Wurly in the fridge, you can keep in your bathroom like a regular shampoo.Answered on 9/8/2014 by Anonymous
A:Nope! I just kept it in my shower. Just make sure that you take the excess shower water out of the product so it doesn't make it mushy! :)

Q:Where do you get the eggs that are used in this shampoo? Cage-free chickens?Asked on 4/16/2014 by Laura from Anchorage, AK
A:The eggs that we use in Curly Wurly are absolutely free range! You can feel free to read more about the ingredient and it's uses on our website under "ingredient finder."Answered on 5/3/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
Q:Is this product suitable on hair extensions?Asked on 1/16/2014 by Jessie
A:Our products aren't tested on hair extensions specifically, so your best bet would be to check with the maker of your extensions!Answered on 3/21/2014 by Brandy from LUSH
A:I don't have hair extensions but I feel it wouldn't be a good shampoo to
use. it is really chunky and requires a lot of work to use. I love it
though :)Answered on 1/17/2014 by Anonymous
Q:I read a lot of reviews that said quite a bit of coconut ends up going down the drain/clogging the drain.
Will I have to worry about this product and my septic system?Asked on 8/26/2013 by Jenne from Bedford, VA
A:The coconut pieces in Curly Wurly are very small and fine, and in general, should not cause any clogs in your drain!Answered on 10/28/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:I never had that problem with Curly Wurly. I really scrub it onto my scalp and yes, a few pieces of coconut are still present but the majority I had scrubbed into my hair.
Sent from my iPhoneAnswered on 8/27/2013 by Anonymous
A:Good question! I have noticed a good amount of coconut going down the drain, however I haven't had any problems with it causing a block, because the pieces are pretty small. I don't have a septic tank, however, so I don't know if that's a pickier system. I do love the shampoo though! Not much of a lather, as I'm used to the chemical-filled ones from the store that lather up like crazy, but a
Sent from my iPhoneAnswered on 8/27/2013 by Anonymous
A:It doesn't clog my drain. If you're doing it right, you only use a small
bit with each shampooing, mixing it with water in your hands before
massaging it into your hair. When you wash it out, it won't be thicker than
other shampoo.Answered on 8/26/2013 by Anonymous
Q:My hair is wavy, not curly. Would this still work on my hair? And could it make my hair any more curly, it always has a few straight pieces in it would this help?Asked on 5/29/2013 by Mads
A:Curly Wurly is really effective at taming frizzy and dry hair, so if your hair needs extra moisture and nourishment, then this would be a good shampoo to use. The added moisture will make wave and curl more defined, but it won't make your hair curlier.Answered on 10/2/2013 by Kendra M from LUSH Direct
Q:Is this product safe to use on color treated hair? My hair is dyed red and I was wondering if this product would strip the color.Asked on 3/23/2013 by Marie from Atlantic City, NJ
A:Although we don't test Curly Wurly on color treated hair,it is one of our mildest shampoos,designed to nourish and superbly hydrate dry,curly hair.Because it is made with large quantities of moisturizing creamed coconut and coconut oil as well as protein-rich fresh eggs and hydrating avocado butter,it is less likely to strip the hair color.Answered on 9/20/2013 by Anonymous
A:Yep! I color my hair and this is my daily shampoo.Answered on 4/10/2013 by Cash from Washington, DC
Q:This sounds like it would be perfect for me, but I'm concerned about the price. How many uses can I expect to get out of one pot? How many uses do you get out of one?Asked on 4/26/2012 by Sie by the Sea from Outer Banks, North Carolina
A:I think it depends on the length of your hair. Mine is almost shoulder length. I always get a lot of uses of LUSH shampoos. I have had BIG for 6 months already, and I use it almost every day. Now, this is my first time trying Curly Wurly (I just got it yesterday), and I am pretty sure it will last me for a good 4 months for sure if I use it daily. I know it's pricy, but, what I know a lot of people do is order it through the UK website. It's cheaper that way and it takes about a week to receive it. For me the price is not too too bad because of the way it leaves my hair: moisturized, soft, shiny. So, it's worth it. It's much better than pricy salon brands, which don't work for me.Answered on 6/16/2012 by Sugar Plum from Houston, TX
A:It is a little high up there in price but it is worth it. If you have super curly/frizzy hair like mine i would only wash it every other day (every 3 is best if you can) the frizz will be cut down and you will get more out of the pot. As long as you only use what you need and not more than you need you will have it for about 3 weeks depending on the length of your hair.Answered on 6/20/2012 by brittany from Ulster Park, NY
A:With Curly Wurly, just a little bit goes a long way, so you should expect to get many uses out of one container. This of course will vary depending on how frequently you shampoo, and how much you use each time. The shelf-life for this product is 14 months. We use wonderful fresh ingredients of the highest quality which is reflected in the value of this shampoo, absolutely.Answered on 5/3/2012 by Megan from LUSH
A:You only need about a quarter size for each wash, I've had mine for about three weeks and I'm a fourth of the way through the pot! Hope I helped! The product is totally worth the price though, there's also the Trichomania solid shampoo bar that isn't too pricey and brings moisture to your hair!Answered on 5/4/2012 by Katie from Kansas
A:It is pricey, but totally worth it. I had the same problem at first. I bought it in the beginning of Jan and I am at the very bottom of my jar just now. I feel like that is better than most drug store shampoos. So one jar has lasted about 5 months. I typically wash my hair every other day, but sometimes more frequently.Answered on 5/21/2012 by The Travler from Seattle, WA
