this hair mask is lightens your hair if you go out under direct sun light . i tired it and it really lighten my hair and it's moisturising too ...
When I wash the mask out, my hair feels like snotty silk. And I love it! After drying it's still very soft, with a lovely smell. I don't think it does anything for my blonde hair, but I will buy again!

I have been using the product for about.. a few months now! I can honestly say at first I saw nothing, and now I see LOTS of difference. I wouldn't use the whole thing on all my hair because I find it wasteful.. so I have made my own recipe.. I wet my own hair first(damp not soaking).. I don't think more product equals more result when using this... then I mix 2 tablespoons of this in a bowl with 1 tbsp of water and 1 tbsp of pure squeezed lemon juice. Then I mix it all over my hair! But I don't leave it in for 20 minutes but rather would leave in for 1 hour to 1.5 hours.. if I'm lazy then only 30 minutes.. but I only leave it in if I go outside! That's the trick!! You put it all over and go in the sun for 30 mins to 1.5 hrs! At first the results were subtle for my light brown hair but now my bf's parents say I am a blonde! If you are a blonde this might make your hair more yellow than a salon would so I would recommend perhaps a blue shampoo to remove brassiness!
To tell you the truth, I find it really works in the sun! And, I would recommend it to anyone who goes in the sun just to lighten hair. It also makes hair SUPER soft, because it is a deep conditioner .. I probably wouldn't use it the same way if you just wanted a deep therapy for your hair. But it is now my HG hair lightener!
I tried this for my hair with a few other LUSH products, and was disappointed in this one. I found that I needed to use quite a lot of product, and since the pot isn't very large (very cute though, love the look of it in the bathroom), it ran out quite quickly - not good when a pot is quite expensive! I couldn't see a noticeable difference in my hair, and it definitely didn't do anything for its blondeness. Would not repurchase.
First of all I must say I looooove the smell of this stuff! It's one of my favourite smells!!goooood!
Anyway, this is an excellent moisturizing hair mask, it really does brighten my blonde hair! My poor locks have been through volountary hell: i'm a natural ash blond and have been all my life so in december i started experimenting with different types of blond (golden, platinum, darker with highlights...) AND I had a perm 6 weeks ago! So it really needed help. I stopped using harsh chemicals and now rely on oils and butters and honey and flaxseed gel to strenghen and moisturize it. As of 10 weeks I haven't done anything to my color so I'm using marylin to brighten everything up while giving it some TLC!
Needless to say I love it, my hair is soft and bright after I shampoo it out (I leave it on at least 30 mins- up to 2 hrs)
Have and will buy again!
Ive been using the Moisteriser for almost a year now. I love the smell and I love the effect it has on my blonde hair.
I leave it in for like 45 minutes, then wash my hair with any LUSH shampoo.
It leaves my hair soft, but not to soft and it adds an amazing shine to my hair and my hair is slightly lighter after using this product and it gives a lot of body/volume to my hair.
This product DOES make hair super soft. But, blonde? No. It's a great moisturizer, but it's not worth the price. I'd probably not buy it again.
Mmmmm - what a fantastic mask!! I have brown, thick and wavy hair and wanted to treat it.. this made it incredibly soft and the smell was amazing! Such a sweet, pleasant smell. I love how smells bring about feelings, and this one made me feel light, refreshed and girly.
I can't believe no one mentioned this - put it on wet hair! That way you need less product and it goes on easier, that's what the SA told me and it was so easy to do. I put this on and wrapped my hair in a towel and waited for about 2.5 hours, I figure that's as long as it'll need to penetrate the hair properly. Then, just rinsed it out and shampooed twice, and conditioned. I got this as a sample in a jar, and my hair is a bit longer than shoulder length and it was enough. Remember the wet hair tip!
A staff member advised me to buy this when I ravaged my hair with bleach. It just left a heavy build up on my hair that made my blonde hair look dirty, dull and brassy at the time- RUBBISH!!! Used Aussie 3Min Miracle instead- it is the best thing ever- cured my hair!
man, i would buy this again if only for the smell. if lush has anything else that smells remotely similar to marilyn, i want to buy it. and i wouldn't describe it as lemon cream or any such thing. to me this smells exactly like the sweet tea you get in the south, maybe with lemon. kind of like how firefly sweet tea vodka smells! or an ARNOLD PALMER!!! consistency is a bit runny and it's a bit too expensive imo to use as anything other than a deep treatment. plan on leaving it on for another hour or two (it's on my head at the moment) and reporting the results.
fwiw i have dark brown hair that has been darkened with henna. i have heard good things about lemon & chamomile being some of the only things that will "remove" henna.
will update soon!
update! removed this stuff from my head and had a great shower w/ "the blonde" shampoo (also purported to lighten) and i have to say my hair feels AMAZINGLY soft. i'm really much more impressed w/ this stuff than the other deep treatments i've used from LUSH. i doubt i'll be buying it very often because of the exorbitant price. i imagine i'll only get one more treatment out of the pot, and i have barely shoulder-length thick hair.
as a natural brunette, i would caution anyone that this won't lighten your hair significantly, but it will give some nice brightening tones! continued >>
