When I get into the shower, especially after a hard workout or just a hard day, I’m used to lathering up with shampoos and
body washes that are perfumy, oily and heavy.
I thought that was normal and fine. Until I came across something new.
The first thing you notice when you open a bottle of Lucky Tiger Head To Tail Shampoo & Body Wash and lather that first palm-full into your hair is an explosion of mint. I’m talking real mint—peppermint oil. An a touch of rosemary. It smells like Christmas.
And when you pump some into your shower exfoliating sponge and start gently scrubbing, you get that mint sensation all over again.
Overall, this shampoo and body wash feels light and invigorating. And it doesn’t dry out your hair or skin.
It’s really quite an experience, especially coming from a men’s grooming brand that’s been going strong since the 1920s.
And oh yeah, after you’re done you feel tingly clean (sorry for that sappy phrase).
Many might wonder: how can a shampoo work on the body? And vice versa?
Well, certain essential oils and extracts are great for hair and skin. Peppermint has been shown to invigorate the scalp, stimulate hair follicles, and add a sheen to hair. Some smaller mouse trials have shown hair growth after applying peppermint oil, but that research is far from conclusive.
It has great antioxidant qualities, too, along with antibacterial benefits.
But for me, it’s just a cool, invigorating sensation that feels great.
So go for the mint. And feel cool all year round.
