Smells of coconut and smoke. It's an ok conditioner. Nothing special. Kinda runny and a little goes a long way so you use more then you need.

I got a sample of this in my last order. It works alright. But my god, the smell is wretched. Heinous. Seriously, it so awful I washed my hair again because I was worried the smell would stick when I exited the shower... :(

Smells lovely. Pricey for what it's worth though
I don't think this product went to great lengths to sort out my hair it just made it a little less dry.
I do like it though so would maybe purchase this again.

If you would like to have dry, tangly & flyaway hair -this would be the conditioner !
Seems I have been too rash in giving Coolaulin
such a bad rating, but it took quite a while for me to like it.
Since I had bought a large bottle and it is quite expensive, I decided to use it up even though I didn`t like it at all initially.
But after some time I noticed that it makes my long ,fine
hair very soft, shiny and manageable after all.
I still donīt like the scent (smells like cold cigarette ash to me ), so it gets 4 lipsticks.
Just my luck that it is hard to find now that I like it!

I got this as a sample after buying henna from Lush. It did not condition my hair at all! I used this after washing my hair with Rehab to get rid of all the henna. I liked the smell though, since all I could smell were coconuts.

Not all that great for curly hair. I only purchased the smaller 100 ml bottle of this but it was still expensive for 3.3 fl oz they charge around $10. It really did little to detangle my curls and I'm not really not a fan of the scent either. This coconut scnet has a smokeyness to it like cigarette ash.

This is my 2nd fav conditioner from LUSH. Too bad it's discontinued. It smelt heavenly, just like a coconut paradise. But it was the nicest coconut smell. Not cheap and gross like the Body Shop.... very subtle and natural smelling like real coconut. =( I know I can get it online but seriously LUSH why did you discontinue this!!!??? I took off one lippie only because American Cream is my first fav LUSH conditioner.

Love this soooooo much. It's been discontinued from the shops which is a hassle but it's still available online thank god. It is the perfect moisturiser for my hair and best of all, it rinses out properly and doesn't leave behind a horrible build up of silicone (which by the way is a con to make you think that your hair is moisturised). I love the smell and I constantly get comments on how good it smells..... especially from men! I've been using it for years and will continue to do so.

Other than it smells really good, it didn't do much for me. I have heard a lot of good reviews on lush and their products so I decided to try it. The lady who helped me said this conditioner hyrdates and smells really good. She was right about it smelling good but it did nothing for my dry and brittle hair. Another thing that bothered me was that they have expiration dates but guess it's good thing since they use more natural ingredients than others. Also, the price was a tad expensive.

Absolutely, utterly revolting, in every possible way. If somebody were to ask me my worst beauty product of all time, I think this might be it - I can't even believe Lush have been selling this for so long.
Given my positive experience with Lush shampoos I really wanted to like this and after the first unsuccessful try I forced myself to keep going in case I was using it wrongly, so i tried using a large amount, then a small amount, leaving it in my hair like a treatment, using a little on the ends and washing it out straight away, using it as a pre -poo....nothing worked and the effect was always the same - my hair was left drier than before, course and sticky to the touch, completely lacking in shine and smelling like an ashtray. It took me weeks of tender loving care to get my hair back to its normal condition after I stopped using this. Months later, even the thought of the smell is enough to put me off my food!

Yuk, yuk, yuk - if I could give this conditioner a minus mark I would! It contains sodium lauryl sulphate - so it's not even that human or eco-friendly but, more importantly it really doesn't work.
I have fine, ringlet curly hair and after using this conditioner trying to comb my hair almost brought tears. The smell isn't great either, it's like a musty, mouldy coconut - generally not a smell you'd like to be recognised for. Please don't waste your money on this product!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Dry, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
You have to keep in mind with this product that it is cone free. I loved this when I was cone free!

I like the smell. Artificial, but whatever.
Now, for the conditioning part. I have been warned that my hair wouldn't feel slippery smooth as with drugstore conditioners, but that I will notice the softness after my hair had dried. It was just like they told me. I also found out by coincidence, that if I don't use conditioner, only shampoo ("normal" or the harsh clarifying type, doesn't matter), my hair still feels super soft once it dried. And super shiny, too. So either I have magical hair, or the conditioner just does nothing to it. I vote the second. Basically what I bought was just a pricy hair perfume. Not very pleasing.
- It is not tested on animals.
- Has probably more natural ingredients than a simple silicone-laden conditioner.
- Even the container is environmentally friendly.
- If you aren't a devoted animal rights activist, nor environmentally conscious, skip it.
- Fake coconut smell. May be nice for some, not so much for others.
- It just wont feel the same as good old dimethicone on your hair. Sad but true. (Although I do have a silicone-free conditioner that does a much, much better job than Coolaulin, leaves my hair slippery but not greasy, and is dirt cheap in comparison. My hair is just so manageable with cones, its hard to give up on them.)
I do believe that for some, Coolaulin could be just perfect. Maybe people with normal hair, which only needs a slight touch of conditioning. For devoted Lush fans in desperate need of moisture I'd suggest Jungle instead.

The smoky smell at first turned me off. Then I got use it. Real coconut does not smell like the synthetic smell everyone has grown to know.
This is also not loaded with silicones so you will not get that slip.
I used this when I had damaged my hair. In a week I could see a huge difference! The smell does last so I suggest buy small at first if you can't get a sample. Not everyone can adjust to the smell.

Woah, why all the rants?
First, this smells fine. It smells like coconut macaroons. Not fabulous, but def not something to get your panties in a bunch over!
Second, it's a good conditioner for girls who don't need crazy moisturization! I use it in my thick, curly hair and it's perfect!
With a splash of Morrocainoil after, my hair is glam!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Dry Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
The worst. I'm glad I just got a sample.
Horrible. I dried my hair and I look like a giant frizz-ball.
Avoid at all costs.

Thank god I only tried the sample for this conditioner. The salesperson was trying to talk me into this but I said I already have a good conditioner so she gave me a sample. Let's just say I would've been pissed if I listened to her and bought this because it sucks and it's not cheap like all their other products. This smells bad and that's being nice. I can't even describe the smell, it's not like a fresh natural herbal smell either, just smells funky. I guess it's a smoky smell like other people have described. I quit smoking years ago because I couldn't stand the smoky smell in my hair. Now they invented a conditioner where you can reek without smoking, awesome! You would have to smell it to know what I'm talking about. And the smell lasts in your hair too which would be great if it smelled nice! To make it worse, it didn't really moisturize very well, I actually think it made my hair feel drier. I like rich, creamy conditioners and this isn't it, it's really watery. Goes to show you not to listen to the salespeople. Just read up on products here and know what you want before you go in.

Expensive waist of money. Doesn't condition at all and smells like an ashtray with some coconut juice in it!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Brown
Why does this smell like tobacco? It doesn't seem to work any better than a conventional conditioner.

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.
