Lush! it's.. well.. lush!

Hello lovelies!
I went to Lush a few weeks ago, one of my absolute favourite shops, and I had a nice chat with one of the girls in there. To be honest I normally try to avoid talking to the assistants, not in a horrid way, just because they are always so lovely and make me feel like I should spend so much more than I can justify!
But, this time I wanted to know more about the hair care range in Lush, I've been in and looked at them countless times but it seems a little overwhelming!
After a quite long chat and a lot of smelling products and messing about with the solid shampoos in the little bowls of water (I know it's a simple thing but I do love the fact that you can try out the products in the store) the lovely lady gave me some samples of the three products I fancied and that she thought would help my extraordinarily damaged hair. They were a pre-shampoo treatment (H'suan Wen Hua), a solid shampoo (Trichomania) and a conditioner (American Cream). 

The pre-shampoo treatment is the product I was most skeptical about, the lady I was speaking to said that it should last up to 6 washes *so you put it on your hair before shampooing, leave however long you can, I usually leave it for around 20 minutes, wash it off and continue with your hair care routine and you shouldn't have to use it again for 6 washes*. I honestly did not believe her, the treatment is amazing there is no doubt about that, I could tell that after using it for the first time, my hair felt stronger immediately and it really does last around 5 or 6 washes so you get so much product for your money!

Trichomania did really surprise me, firstly I have never used a solid shampoo before but I will never go back now, it's amazing and you get so much more use out of the product. I have used my sample now about 5 times and honestly there is hardly any difference. It smells amazingly of coconut, not the fake kind of coconut smell in most "coconut scented" products, but a real coconut smell (could I have said coconut any more? COCONUT!).

Now, the conditioner.. I wasn't disappointed in it, it is a good product, but it didn't seem as amazing to me as the other products. I think it may be because the pre-shampoo treatment was already doing so much, I don't feel I need it. But it does work wonders and make your hair super-duper shiny which is amazing for me seen as mine is as damaged as can be.

So there you have it! My recent Lush loves..

  1. I love LUSH, especially Curly Wurly and Blousey shampoos, though they clog my drain, Jumping Juniper solid shampoo and Jungle solid conditioner. Never heard of the pre-shampoo treatment, sounds like I need to buy one when I go next month.
