The PHB Ethical Beauty Hair Duo That Will Boost Your Locks

Ever since I gave up the mighty spend that came with my love of Lush’s Big Shampoo, I’ve been forced to try some alternatives. So far, although a few products have been quite lovely, none of them has quite tugged my heart strings the way Big did. Since discovering LoveLula, I’ve had access to a whole world of brands I used to admire other bloggers using  – PHB Ethical Beauty is one of them.  All vegan, cruelty-free and packed with organic ingredients and essential oils I love, I’ve been really enjoying working my way through their products and have found some gems.

Most recently on my list has been their Tea Tree and Lime Volumising Shampoo and Conditioner* duo.

PHB Ethical Beauty Volumising Shampoo And Conditioner - cruelty free, vegan and organic shampoo and conditioner

First Impressions

On first impressions, I was a huge fan of the pump-lid packaging – no more wrestling with soapy shampoo bottles and dropping them on my foot in the shower. My only complaint would be that I feel like I need quite a bit of product as my hair is so thick, and I have to hit the poor pump quite a few times. That aside, the pump is super handy and I appreciate it a lot.

In terms of scent, tea tree and lime will always have my heart – a refreshing duo that leaves your hair smelling refreshed and clean without smelling too medicinal (I find some tea tree products can come off a bit medical).

After the first few uses, I noted my hair definitely felt clean, fresh and soft after each wash. I did find that I wasn’t able to go as long between washes, which I had hoped was just my hair acclimatising to the new product.

Lasting Impressions

I’ve been using the PHB Ethical Beauty Volumising duo for a while now, and although I am still enamoured with the scent, I’m finding myself needing to use an awful lot of it. My hair is very thick and heavy, and I find that it gets greasy quite quickly between washes. If my hair was still much shorter, I think I’d get on pretty well with these products for a bit of lift. I find now that I can get away with only conditioning every other wash which does help but as my hair is so long and heavy now I do want to keep it in good condition – which means finding a conditioner I can actually use regularly.

That being said, both products are very gentle so regular use isn’t necessarily a bad thing. My wanting to not wash my hair every 3 days mostly comes down to laziness!

If you have very fine, light hair, you’ll probably fall in love with these.


Both of these products cost £22.50 as a duo set on LoveLula.

Will I buy again?

As much as I want to love them, I don’t think this combination is quite right for my hair.

Would you ever consider giving this duo a go?

  1. I tried mini versions of these a while back! I love the tea tree and lime combo but like you I found I had to leave less time between washes, which didn’t particularly suit my fine hair. But I did love the volume effect the shampoo had on my roots 🙂 xx
