The SA (who was soo nice btw. Lush employees are the best) gave me a sample of this and the honey fairtrade shampoo and I used them both last night. My brown hair has been highlighted with bleach and because of this it really needs help!. I have incredibly thick (well used to, but I'll explain later) and long hair that when I allow to dry naturally forms loose curls and waves and that stands up on its own. Also its really frizzy and the strands dont stick together and look glossy (i don't know how to explain it) They usually just fuzz all over the place because of the static. I usually combat all this by using hair oils to gloss it over and straightening the shit out of it.It usually relaxes the day after its washed, and the third day its perfect, with it staying where I want it to and looking shiny and tame. Alas it never takes me that long to brush it.
I went into the shower with my hair brushed, and when I conditioned with this it made the BIGGEST tangles in my hair. My tangle teaser couldn't even get at it properly. I lost so much hair trying to get the knots out and I already have a problem with loosing hair (I actually think I'm going bald and wanna cry daily) so this product reaaaaaally didn't help. The plus side is when it was all brushed out it was smooth and shiner than when i usually first get out of the shower, but I could tell I had less hair. My curls were defined and the strands were sticking together. I would actually go out of the house and not feel ridiculous/like I'd come out of the 80's. But at what price?
A little about my hair: dry scalp, fairly dry ends, long, thick, recently colored, easy tangled.
I used a sample of Veganese from a lovely saleswoman at Lush. It smells good but the scent doesn't last. It didn't weigh down my hair or irritate my scalp. In fact, it didn't do much at all. I wouldn't purchase the full size unless I were looking to throw away money on a useless conditioner.
I like the way this conditioner smells, and performs but it's incredibly expensive.
IUt's not overly moisturising but I've been using it as a daily conditioner and using something else as a weekly treatment.
I don't think it's performance justifies the price so I won't be purchasing this again.
To be honest? I do not think any of the lush conditioners do really that much for my hair. But there are better ones and worser ones. And this is one of the worser ones. I do not really like the smell of it but that not surprisingly since i don't like lemony fragrances. But it also does really nothing for my hair. It doesn't look shiner, it isn't softer, just nothing. I way prefer the American cream conditioner which at least makes my hair feel soft and smells incredible. The only thing I really like about it is that it is vegan...
I don't like the smell. It's chemical lemony. It's very thin, but when I was cowashing my hair (not using shampoo, only conditioner) this worked very well, exactly because it's that thin.
--- how Veganese smelled
--- how it left my hair smelling delightful
--- that it did moisturize my hair
But I decided against it because:
--- it's too watery
--- I had to use far too much of it
--- it wasn't economical for me
The Veganese hair conditioner from Lush is very thin, so I need to use a lot of product before my hair feels coated. Even then, it doesn't feel very conditioning. Its only redeeming quality is that it smells amazing. At a very expensive EUR17.95 for 500 mL, I expected a lot more from this product. I definitely will not be repurchasing it.
This does leave my hair shiny and smells like lemon.
But the consistency is too thin for my taste- I have to use waaaay too much of it each time and it is too expensive for that. I like my conditioner to coat my hair so I dont feel like Im wasting it down the drain and so I know which part of my hair is already coated!
So basically, while it smells okay and leaves hair shiny, it isnt moisturizing enough for me and it goes way too quickly due to the thin consistency.
I've been on the hunt for a an extremely lightweight conditioner that makes hair shiny...volume & shine? Seemed impossible until I found this. Most 'volumizing' conditioners coat the hair in starch or some variant which makes my hair feel gross not to mention dry. I desperately needed volume and soft, shiny hair...enter Veganese <3 The smell is divine, you only need a small amount, it detangles fairly well (definitely not for super thick hair) but if you have thin, sparse from hair loss etc, dry hair lacking shine and volume give this a whirl..I don't think you'll be disappointed. continued >>
New HG conditioner... my hair is fine & gets greasy/weighed down easily if I use the wrong or too much product in it, and although this doesn't make my hair as soft as other conditioners, it's so light that my hair feels better for longer after using it. I absolutely love it, smells yummy too! I took a lippie off because it's super expensive, for me at least... although I'll keep buying it and just using it as sparingly as I can! continued >>
