Shampoo review: LUSH Daddy-O

Lush Hair Care

Don’t know if it’s too much exposure under the sun or my last hair color because I switched brands, but my hair has been acting up lately. I tried to counteract the dullness with leave-in conditioners, but noticed a nasty build-up which is making it even more difficult to manage. We passed by a LUSH store in Serendra and it so happened that newer hair care products were the focal point in the display. I didn’t think twice about purchasing the smallest (3.3 fl oz) bottle of Daddy-O, after all it was created to banish brassiness in blonde hair and brighten graying hair, as the shampoo has a violet tone, so if you check the color wheel, violet is the direct opposite of yellow. I surmised it helps maintain colored hair as well, especially that it contains conditioning ingredients like lemon and seaweed.

I’m not too keen on reading ingredients one by one. Critics say it contains SLS. There’s a protracted debate about the carcinogenicity of the surfactant SLS or sodium lauryl sulfate (a surface active ingredient which makes shampoo or soap more foamy) — but LUSH says (here), SLS is just 10% in Daddy-O. Perhaps negligible, perhaps not. To my belief, carcinogens are lurking everywhere.


In a matter of 3 shampoos, my hair was perceptibly softer that I went back to LUSH to get the biggest bottle. It’s also a lot shinier and easier to style. The scent is kinda grassy and old-fashioned, like your grandmother’s perfume, but the scent has grown on me.

Lush Daddy-OThe other sizes are 16.9 and 8.4 fl oz.

I got 2 other LUSH hair products and will talk about them separately.
