Hair from Gobi

Hello sweeties,

Continuation of the Lush saga! My Lush mania first concerned hair products. As I bleach and dye my hair, my hair die (haha well done Wina). My hair are naturally black and now they’re close to platinum blond. I know.

OH MY GODWell, they actually are not in catastrophic health, as I do a lot of care. They’re just more dry than when I had natural hair.
For some months, I’m doing pre-wash treatments from Lush. My first choice was H’Suan Wen Hua. Yeah, that’s a complex name.

Hsuan-wen-huaThe mask itself is very good, it’s a great hair moisturizer, it perfectly does its job. But I absolutely hate the smell. You can smell the eggs in it. Ugh. And I’m not at all a fan of the Bay Leaf infusion smell. It’s way too strong for me. But some people like it.

So I decided to switch to Marilyn.

MarilynThe smell was so much better for me. It’s a lot fresher and more lemony, I love it. It’s also a great mask, especially for blond hair, it illuminates them without emphasizing the wee-wee-yellow highlights. Used with the Daddy-O shampoo, it’s perfect.

Daddy-OPeople. This is the most incredible shampoo smell I’ve ever smelled in my life. The violet scent is a blessing. It smells so good that I could use it as a shower gel. And about the stops-blonde-going-brassy stuff, it’s ok. It does the job, but nothing miraculous, it won’t help you a lot if you have very yellow highlights. It’s a shampoo after all. But really, the smell is amazing. More than Trichomania.

Trichomania

Looks like french cheese haha

This is the first shampoo from Lush that I bought. My hair were pretty dry at that moment and I needed something nourishing. The salesman recommended Trichomania to me and he was damn right. When you wash your hair with this, the hair feel very dry. But once it’s rinsed and dried, the change is surprising. My hair were really soft, like I just cut them. The smell of the shampoo is very nice. It smells like coconut, but not the very chemical coconut, you know? That’s very pleasant. And solid shampoo is a really good value. I bought 100g of it, used it for 2 months and there was still half of the product. The only bad point is that it was giving me dandruff, which I usually never have. Not very sexy.

And last but not least, the conditioners. I first bought Retread.

RetreadNice smell, very fresh and delicately flowered. Good conditioner. But so quickly ended. After a month of use, the pot was empty. I felt like I needed to apply a tons of conditioner each time to do all my head, although I have very short hair. So after my first pot, I didn’t buy it again. But it also was because I wanted to try American Cream.

American CreamI think I will never ever use another conditioner. This one is fantastic. The smell is TO DIE FOR. Um, sorry, to die for. See how crazy it drives me. It doesn’t smell like strawberry, contrary to what the picture may make you think. It’s gourmand and smooth and a little amber I think. It smells really, really good. I could eat it or drink it or whatever. Best part is that the smell stays for days. FOR DAYS. This is wonderful. And of course it’s an awesome conditioner, it makes the hair soft without making them heavy. I guess it’s my favourite Lush product by far.

Next time, we’ll be talking about face products, kids. Be good meanwhile.

  1. I find the exact same thing with my Retread! American Cream isn’t quite right for my hair, so I’ve tried Retread and it’s perfect but I end up using SO much more than I would if it was in a squeezy bottle /:

    • Yes, I think the pot format isn’t the best. After a few uses, I tried to use less product, but still, it was like it was vanishing behind my back… ಠ_ಠ

      • I always end up dropping loads on the floor too, my family can probably just hear me screaming in frustration”NNOOOOOOO YOU ARE TOO EXPENSIVE TO GO DOWN THE PLUGHOLE” as I desperately try and scoop it up. Nightmare! I might try decanting some into a spare bottle and see if it lasts longer that way….
