Review: Funky Soap Solid Shampoo

Funky Soap Unwrapped

When I picked the daisies to use for this photo I was a bit of a plonker and decided to wait till the evening before I used them to photograph this product since I wanted to get some face charts done first. Needless to say as soon as it got dark the daisies closed up so I spent a good 15 minutes trying to blow the petals open and then wondered why I felt light headed. Sometimes I really do amaze myself at how dim I can be!

I’ve been using the Lush solid shampoos for well over two years now

I love the lush shampoos, but they do have SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) which is something I’m trying to eradicate completely from my skincare/haircare. This one does not so I was quite excited to see how well (or badly it worked!)

Funky Soap

When you cut out SLS from your shampoo it can make your hair go a little berserk for a week or two as your hair adjusts and get’s rid of the chemical build up. I was expecting my hair to go full on rebel on me, but it didn’t! I did notice it took about a week for my scalp to feel perfectly clear from any build up, but my actual  hair felt fantastic.

Basics: Hand made . Cruelty Free . SLS free . £4.50 . Travel Friendly

It does lather slightly less than the lush shampoos, but it’s such a tiny difference you hardly notice. One thing you do have to be careful of is to rinse out your hair properly, especially at the back of your head or you you get an residue left over that looks like you never washed your hair in the first place.


The only downside to this product, and it’s a small one, is that is doesn’t last as long as the Lush shampoos which normally laat me two or three months. I think because of the high amount of oils in this bar it has a tendency to melt a little in the shower.

But so far I’ve been using it for a month and I’m only half way through the bar so it really isn’t that much of a problem. It’s really easy to cut too, no crumbling, so if you wanted to cut it into little blocks you wont have any problems.

    Great post! I too am transitioning off hair/skin products containing SLS. Another line of products that are harsh chemical free is Shea Moisture. I’m currently using their Neroli & Monoi Shampoo and I absolutely love it! It’s not a bar, it comes in a bottle (in liquid form), but you should give it a go!

    This looks very interesting! I would love to try it. I was using Wen shampoo for a while and that didn’t lather too much, so I guess it may be SLS free. The downside to Wen is that it is pricey and that’s why I don’t use it anymore. :(

    This seems so awsome! Do you know if they sell it overseas? Brazil? I would love to try this shampoo :)

    I love any sort of chemical free beauty prduct and make a lot of my own. Shampoo making is still a mystery to me, so I’m always happy to hear about ready made, chemical free products that work. Great article.
