Dizzamn. This made my hair smell like the most beautifully fragrant orange grove in the world, and conditioned the hell out of it. I have stick straight, fine, limp hair--form an orderly queue, boys--so I just applied it to my ends and used it like I would any other conditioner--let it sit for a few minutes, and then combed it out. I wouldn't dare use it on anything but my ends because I have a feeling I'd end up looking like I dipped my head in mayonnaise, but it worked like a charm for me. The tub packaging is kind of a drag and the price isn't exactly low, but you really only need a tiny scoop to get the job done, so considering how long it lasts, I'd say the price is justified.
So, I have a love hate relationship with this product...
I have thin, fine hair and I know that this product is not geared to people with my hair type. My hair; however, is dry and damaged and I purchased this with the sole purpose of hydrating and revitalizing my dried out ends.
That being said, I use it the night before I'm going to wash my hair... Typically it's the 3rd day of not washing. I sleep with it in, and then shampoo out the following morning. It has helped with the moisture level in my hair, and I will continue to use is this fashion. I did; however, try to use it after shampooing before blow drying my hair. That did not work for me as it left an oily residue, even at the ends of my hair. It didn't style as usual and I will not use this way.
For those with curly, dry hair, I can totally see this as being a lifesaver.
Strange stuff - at first it feels like it might have dried your hair out a little, but shortly thereafter the hair seems to absorb it and happily so.
I have huge, mad, curly frizzy hair. I use lush shampoo & condish (in rotation, I like them all), and I think this stuff would be terrible with silicones, so beware! Don't use much and it'll last you forever. I got a small tub when I was first pregnant, my son is now a year old and the pot is pretty much full still. It does stink though, phwoah!
I've always disliked Lush's packaging. I know why they do it but it is annoying to have to claw some of this out of the pot and put in your hair. I wish there was a pump. Anyways, I don't really see the hype of this stuff. Makes your hair smell great all day, but if you do not pair it with Lush's shampoo and conditioner, like the lady in the store told me, it won't absorb into your hair.
If you are not ready to buy their shampoo and conditioner first, please don't try this with a silicon shampoo or conditioner. You'll be left with a layer that weighs down your hair. And buying the shampoo, conditioner and this leave-in conditioner, you're looking at about $70 dollars when you're done. I'd rather stick with salon professional shampoo. But I am not hating on this product - maybe it's just not for me.
I randomly walked into Lush one day, not really expecting much I just wanted to look at the hair products they had. This girl that worked there talked to me, asked what my hair type was & what I do, & I told her I frequently straighten it so she showed me this & tested it on my hair. It made it feel so soft, so I asked for a sample of it & I forgot about it until a couple of weeks ago I put it on my hair after I straightened it, it felt like I just came out of the salon! It made my hair feel so moisturised & healthy. I will definitely be buying the container of this in the future when I run out of my sample. Also with this, a little goes a very long way :)
I agree with the other positive reviews. This stuff is awesome! It is quite perfumed, so you might want to have a sniff before you buy. As perfume is such a personal preference. I find it pleasant, but not in a way that I want to eat it :). This product reminds me of a thick moisturizer for the face. It also kind of applies that way, in that your hair drinks it in. It doesn't make the hair stringy or weighed down, or greasy looking either. Just gives you moisturized, soft, slightly shinier locks. Love it!
THE HOLIEST OF GRAILS! This stuff is seriously amazing, and I did not have very high hopes for it at all, mainly because it's not intended for my hair type. My hair is super fine and loosely wavy (sometimes it's almost straight, other times I get spiral waves but that's rare) but it's also very dense and tends to be dry. A very difficult combination to say the least. This is meant to be for thick, curly hair and I avoid stuff like that like the plague because it usually just leaves my hair flat, weighed down, and stringy. The consistency of r&b is basically like a butter, SUPER thick and oily. I tried this anyway though because it smells great and I like lush. AND I'M SO GLAD I DID. First off, it doesn't weigh my hair down at all, it's lighter than a serum even. Not only that, it actually enhances my waves, makes then super bouncy, and defines them without making them clumpy or stringy, which I hate. Basically it gives me mermaid waves, which was not something I thought I could ever achieve with my hair. My hair even seems to have more volume, crazy as it sounds. It leaves my hair really soft and helps with detangling, though it doesn't have that silicone slip. Genuinely seems to make my hair healthier and stronger too, as opposed to just better looking. For the record, I use a really tiny amount (think half a pea sized amount) on my bra strap length hair. I've been searching for a HG leave in/styling product for years, there just don't seem to be many products out there suited for my hair type. Don't be afraid to try this if you have fine, straight-wavy hair. It is awesome!
I am absolutely in love with this. You only need a pea size amount rubbed in after your shower. I like to wash my hair, towel dry it, comb it and apply a small amount. It smells freaking AMAZING just like jasmine. My hair dresser likes to apply scented oil after washing my hair and my choice is always jasmine oil... So this fits right in to my everyday hair washing routine.
I'm originally from the West Coast but I had to move to Edmonton for uni last year. My hair is naturally a brownish black colourI have been dyeing my hair on and off for about 6 years now. Currently, I have a blonde ombre. In this dry, cold weather, the damage in my hair became super evident, like my split ends had split ends. When I went home for Christmas, my hairdresser had to cut off at least 5 inches!
Needless to say, I went on a hunt for something that could treat my hair and also protect it from further damage. I had heard good things about Lush so I decided to ask the girl there for recommendations. She told me this was great for all over lieave-in moisturizer so I bought it.
I saw the difference in about a week. My hair looked shinier, smoother, and visibly healthier. I have dyed my hair since and my hair has remained healthy and damage free. Since you don't need much, I still have about half of the tub left and I will repurchase this for sure :D
Alright alright, I have to give it to this product, it works. I have thick, coarse, super dry and super damaged platinum blond hair. While I do have a couple of HG products that are always by my sink for treating my hair, I'm always searching for new additions.
So, I'm at Lush the other day for my Lemony Flutter, and a (rather pushy) sales associate recommends this. I like the smell, so I get a sample. The next morning after showering I apply my usual leave ins minus my leave in conditioner, substituting this instead. I have to say, it's really nice. My hair was smooth, soft, and shiny. Plus, as other reviewers have said, the smell is really nice. I used probably about 1/2 tsp for my thick, chin length hair.
I am docking one star because looking at the ingredients list this should be cheaper. I understand you pay a premium for organic, ethically sourced ingredients and recycled packaging. However, ingredients like jojoba oil, avocado oil, and glycerin, are definitely on the cheaper end of that spectrum. Dock $6 from the price and I'd give this 5 stars.
