Hate the smell. This first time I smelt it I physically vomited. I got it offline so I did not know how it smelt. Then again, I HATE cinnamon.
Tried better pre-shampoo hair masks so was quite disappointing as it wasn't very moisturizing.
I've started using this product recently..
Really enjoying it. Although it doesn't smell that appealing, the product definetly works!
The ends of my hair are very dry, this product has helped a lot.
I see the differeance when i straighten my hair or curel it, as the stays in place, and doesn't dry out.
Downside- expensive, however i only use it 1-2 a fortnight, so worth it i guess.
Will re-purchase this product!!!! :)
First off, yes, this smells pretty vile. However if you can stand the smell for a while, it will leave your hair silky soft. I applied it in the morning when I got up, put my hair up with a large hair clamp and had breakfast. As long as I didn't move around too much, the smell would be hardly noticeable. Then after about an hour or so I would get in the shower and rinse it out. Followed by shampooing my hair twice and using conditioner. The scent disappeared completely and after my hair was dry, it felt AH-MA-ZING. It's true that you need quite an amount (I have pretty thick, over the shoulder hair) for one use and that's what makes this product quite expensive. Splurging on it once in a while is totally justifiable though in my book ;D
I didnt like the smell. Only used one time but it didnt seem to make my hair feel like butter like other deep conditioners have.
I have fairly straight, thick, coarse Asian hair. I also have massive tangles in my hair beneath the top layer that is seemingly straight and problem-free. Sometimes I'm too scared of brushing it out so I just let the tangles grow because hey nobody can see it anyway! But this mask makes it all better. It smells really spicy, I mean REALLY SPICY! I'm sure it won't linger as much if you wash it after 20 mins but I leave it in overnight and my hair reeks of the spices for a week at least, but I can deal with the smell since it leaves my hair sooooooo soft and tangle free. The price is on the expensive side because I only get 2 uses out of the tub and that's 10 dollars per mask. And I'd like to add that as it approaches the expiration date it won't work as well so use it up well before!
H'Suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment was one of the first products i bought from Lush.
One word: AMAZING.
It may not look very good, but i really like the smell (smells like cinnamon/candies) and the effect it has on my hair is awesome.
I have very fine hair which is very hard to volumize - H'Suan Wen Hua makes my hair so manageable that after i blowdry them i look like a lion.
They are also very nourished and shiny, but they don't turn dirty the next day as many products do.
- I find this product really expensive. If you use it like it should (on dry hair / good coverage) you can only get 4 uses out of it (I have shoulder length hair - but quite thirsty)
- Packaging is OK; typical Lush black tub
- I wasn't a fan of the smell at all. Cross between rotten eggs and god knows what.
- My hair felt like it contained more moisture, but for that price and that smell it wasn't good enough. Will not repurchase.
I got a big pot of this as a sample (thank god otherwise I would be taking it back ASAP) from Lush after being given a hard sell by one of their staff in store.
They told me that it was basically a miracle product to replenish damaged hair and spent 30 minutes banging on about how great it was.
I HATED the smell of it in the shop but thought I would give it a try in the shower to at least see if it was a good product for my hair.
How wrong was I!!!
I opened it in the shower and no joke, I almost vomited! The smell of this stuff is so disgusting that even if it was a good product (which it's not, it's runny and doesn't even coat your hair properly) I wouldn't use it. It smells like a cross between bad eggs and cinnamon. It is the most vile thing I have ever smelt in my life!
I was so excited to try this product but I was really disappointed. I have bra-strap length thick and wavy hair. I used 1/4th of the pot and it made my hair shiny, but actually more dry and frizzy than without. I had to use R&B to smooth it down. It felt healthier but looked like crap. I don't know if I would buy this again... continued >>
