“Order Me A Pint of Beer…For My Hair!”
I purchased a LUSH Cosmetics shampoo called Cynthia Sylvia Stout. LUSH Cosmetics. I wanted to try this shampoo as I have read that beer is good for your hair if you use one that has ale hops and yeast. Well, I am here to report that it is not a myth, and LUSH has formulated Cynthia Stout with organic vegan stout beer from a local brewery, and it contains protein to give your hair weight, smoothness, and a really beautiful shine. What they told me in the LUSH store was that this is the shampoo to use if you have hair that gets frizzy-looking when there is damp or humid weather conditions. This shampoo, though, can be used for all hair types.
LUSH Cosmetics Cynthia Sylvia Stout sizes and prices:
3.3 fl. oz is $9.95
8.4 fl. oz is $19,95
16.9 fl. oz is $29.95
This LUSH Cosmetics product is Vegan, which means that it does not contain animal products of any kind. As you might expect, the shampoo does have the smell of a fine ale. However, LUSH does add fresh organic lemon juice, lemongrass oil, and cognac oil, to provide a richer and very pleasant aroma overall.

I love that LUSH Cosmetics products have the photo on the back of the product with the person who made it and the date. Also, the date of expiration.
What I love about LUSH Cosmetics Cynthia Stout:
- Cruelty Free
- It’s for all hair types, but especially beneficial for taming the frizzes!
- For all scalps because yeast improves the health of the hair and scalp and is said to encourages new hair growth.
- Will add lots of shine!
- As it did for mine, I’m sure it will give your hair lots of added volume
- The shampoo lathers up really quickly!
- The organic beer is local to the LUSH Vancouver manufacturing facility
Cons for LUSH Cosmetics Cynthia Sylvia Stout?
Yes, I really wish that it did not contain Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate.
In case you were wondering:
My children and I love Shel Silverstein! One of his poems is about a girl who refused to take the garbage out, and her name was: Cynthia Sylvia Stout. That’s where LUSH got the name for their shampoo (along with the clever play on words with “Stout” in the name and beer in the shampoo).
