This is a great heavy-duty conditioner. It leaves my dry, firzzy hair soft and silky. It smells weird in the tub and on hair, but when rinsed out you hair will smell of violets. Gorgeous. Pretty expensive at $20/8oz, and the tub packaging isn't ideal - but overall a superior product.
This has such a thick, creamy texture it has to be packaged in a tub. Some people may not like this, but I actually prefer a conditioner that's thick enough not to drip and waste. It smells a bit peculiar in the tub, sort of grassy and cucumbery, but leaves a dreamy violet and melon fragrance in the hair, similar to American Cream's. It definitely works better if you leave it in 20 minutes or so before rinsing, when it gives great deep conditioning. And it works better the more you use, unfortunately for the budget. I find it leaves my long fine hair soft and a little limp, but not totally flat. It's not quite as good as Terax Crema, but better than a lot of other salon brands, and cheaper than them too. Highly recommended for deep conditioning.
I am crazy about the scent,it is simply divine , heady,sweet violets-gorgeous , you will be able to smell yourself for days-so you better like the fragrance. Apart from that it is a wonderful conditioner, thick like mayonnaise & makes your hair supersoft & shiney. If you have dry/processed or just plain frazzled hair this is the one product you have to buy.
Not the greatest smell, but boy does it leave your hair soft! I have really fried thick coarse hair, but it really softens it. You may not think it's doing anything when you apply it, since it's not as thick and goopy as most heavy-duty conditioners, but you can really feel it after! Especially if you leave it in for a long time. AWESOME!
My fabulous dream conditioner. It makes my hair incredibly soft, shiny, smooth and frizz-free. I often don't need to use any products when I use this. It doesn't leave a slick consistency on your hair but still provides softness. My only complaint is that the tub is small and you don't get much product for what you pay for it. Oh well. I'll buy it in Canada where I can get the tax refunded and a better exchange rate.
i like to switch around my conditioners depending on how bad my hair is that morning. i use retread for my snarly days when i need something heavier. i put it on my damp hair in the shower and leave it on for at least 5 minutes otherwise i don't think it does a proper job of it. it's nice and thick and moisturizing. i like the mild avacado cucumber smell too. a must try for anyone with long unruly hair.
I'm amending my review of this. First off, I adore the scent. I realize it's not for everyone (it's violet, which is a love it or hate it scent). However it is very expensive and seems to condition pretty much as well as much, much cheaper Pantene. One thing I will say is that you don't need to use as much of this as you might think. LUSH products won't make your hair as "slippery" as commercial conditioners, but they are still working.
I love this stuff ! It's been a hair saver. My hair is short but it's coarse and dry. This has made my hair more soft, shiny, and less dry.
I took away 1 lipstick cause I HATE the tub this comes in !!! I wish it came in a tube or bottle instead !!! continued >>
You bet I will buy this again! It really is the missing link between American Cream and Jungle. It's thicker than American Cream but more liquid than jungle which is a solid. It is a rich creamy texture and a little goes a long way.
The scent is also a combi of Jungle and American cream- vanilla and melon combined. Sooo yummy! Hair looks and feels great. If you put a little its soft but with body. A lot? rebonded hair effect! You just can't lose. If I could only have one conditioner, this would be it.
RAVE!!! Is there a six lip rating?
