I've been using this for a round a week now, and I'm quite torn on it.
- My hair feels lovely & soft after using it.
- It really boosts my curls and brings them out.
- Not too expensive.
- The smell. I know a lot of comments have been made, and I agree. To me there is an initial scent of coconut, but it's followed by an odd, woodsy smokey smell. Looking at the ingredients, I think perhaps it's Vetivert oil? I generally like the natural fragrances of Lush products, but I don't find this one pleasant at all.
- It seems quite thin & watery, so I have to use a lot to get through my curly hair
- Although my hair is soft & smooth after rinsing, it doesn't do a great job of detangling my curls. I usually comb my hair through while I have conditioner on my hair to minimize damage, but even with this conditioner on my hair it is still difficult to comb through.
Overall it's an ok conditioner, but I can use a better, more expensive conditioner to bring out my curls, or an ordinary high street one for basic detangling. I won't be re-buying.
Smells lovely, but ultimately it wasn't moisturizing enough for my very thick, long, wavy hair.
I got this because of the coconut scent, but the smokeyness that's being mentioned over and over again did get to me so I wont be purchasing it again. It's a decent conditioner otherwise, but I think both American Cream and Veganese are better, and smell much nicer.
IMHO Lush should stick to making soaps and bath products- this is yet another total flop on the hair front. I got it as a freebie when I purchased lots of other things, so thankfully I didn't waste any money.
To me, this smells like an old ashtray- I know this because I'm an ex- dirty old smoker. I almost didn't use it because of that fact, but I caved.
I didn't get any kind of moisturising properties out of this, and it is so light and thin that most of it just slid off my hair before it could have even had a chance to work. I tried it again the next day, but this just seems to be a totally pointless product with an awful smell and no redeeming qualities.
I absolutely hated this product! It's supposed to smell like coconuts, and maybe there was a hint of it, but it really just smelled "smoky" to me. It also did nothing to condition my hair. I felt like I was just using water.
I did not like this at all. It lasts like a week and it doesn't do anything for my hair. I had a problem with the smell too, it was supposed to smell like coconut, but it was just.. sickish? It almost smelled like coconut, but kind of like a really, really old coconut... It felt kind of sticky while in the hair too.
This is not a great product for thick/curly hair. I have a lot of hair, but its very fine in texture. I didn't feel like this product weighed my hair down. My only complaint is that I did have to use a bit of detangler after my shower.
This might be a fun conditioner to use in the Summer when you just need something light and airy, however this was not my hairs perfect match.
PROS: (1) frothy light lotion consistency that makes it easy to evenly distribute through the hair. (2) a wonderful Coconut scent with a slight warm jasmine undertone- which is odd because jasmine is not listed in the ingredients, perhaps this is the ‘perfume’ giving it that wonderful aroma.
CONS: (1) Simply that it does not condition my hair, nor does it detangle it. (2) My hair was left frizzy and static, hair was floating around my head as if vainly searching for reception from a secret Lush satellite receiver.
This product makes my hair smell wonderful, but that’s about it. It left much to be desired in performance. On the bright side, I did not waste this product as I discovered it could be used to create a wonderful scent cocktail when mixed with Lush Ghost body wash. It smells like a coconutty version of Silky Underwear- It was fabulous. However, I will not repurchase again.
Once upon a time a nice hair stylist whispered in my ear, "the secret is coconut. Use it & love it & your hair will always be great." and it was, forever more... until I got cheap after a transatlantic move & I switched away from my magic combo (Daddy O shampoo & Coolaulin conditioner.... BAD IDEA! My hair dried up like an old witches armpit & like an idiot I kept wondering why. "A woman's crowning glory is her hair," I cried!
So the other day I regained my common sense (and composure) and splurged on the good stuff. As I teetered back on the heels of my self confidence & powered myself into work, all of my coworkers had noticed something was nice about my hair. I'll never stray again.
This is the one Lush conditioner that I use more frequently. Although my hair is fine and rather flat, this is the one that suits me the best, since I find that many of the Lush conditioners aren't very conditioning at all. And my hair is down to my butt, so I need the extra care.
The scent seems to be a diffcult matter. Many people don't like it. Most are fine with the coconut (and so am I), but there's a weird, undefinable smell besides it, that I can't point my finger at. Hated by many, I still love it. I'm a coconut girl, and an extra splash of odd isn't to any disadvantage.
If you need a lot of care for your hair, I wouldn't go with this one. But if you have dry hair, or need to maintain a long hair, this one is fine, with the extra treatment from time to time.
