As promised, here is the first of my product reviews from my Lush Haul! If you missed my Lush Haul (it was a big one) you can read it here... I have chosen to review these products first because I want to continue using the skin care stuff for a while, just so that I can give you the uttermost accurate review possible So, first I am going to review the H'Suan Wen Hua - crazy name. It took me ages to choose which hair mask to go for, I literally analysed them all in great detail in the shop and the lady tried to convince me to buy one just for blondes, my answer was; my readers aren't all blonde! I want something suitable for everyone. So this is what I ended up with. As soon as I got home, I left it on my hair for three hours. I chose to leave it on for so long because it's not gonna hurt my hair is it? Sleeping in conditioners/treatments has been proven to work wonders for the hair, so why not. What I love about this product is the fact that on the instructions, it tells you to leave it on for a while (20 mins). My hair dresser has always told me that if a treatment only says 'leave on for 3 minutes' it isn't strong enough. So buy this, have a soak in the bath (the steam from the bath actually makes it work quicker) and I promise you will see a result. I was once told, that if you put a leave in conditioner on your hair and then heat it with a hair dryer, it works better (not sure!?)
Lush claim that this product is designed to 'improve the condition, lustre and combability of hair
What goodness is in it:
-Bay and watercress infusions, balsamic vinegar and rosemary oil for shine.
-Fresh free range eggs and soya lecithin for protein to restructure the hair.
-Lanolin, from sheep’s wool, moisturises as it's similar to human sebum.
-Olive oil to improve the tensile strength of the hair shaft.
-Cinammon leaf oil for its antiseptic qualities.
-Fresh organic bananas and avocados for their rich oily moisturising properties.
This product was £8.00 if I remember correctly, which is probably middle range, but if you really want to treat yourself and pamper, I'd recommend this 100%, I've already used it three times and I have very long hair so it shows that you can get a few treatments out of it. I will be repurchasing this ASAP. I think it may be the holy grail of hair masks, and it's taken me a long time to find a hair product that is this good and doesn't cost £30.00. It really does give instant results.
Last but not least, I have been using the 'It's Raining Men' shower gel and it's absolutely delicious. It's like perfume for your hair.You can use it on your body and your hair which is good and I chose it because it smells like my favourite soap, 'Honey I washed the kids' but in a liquid format. Even after a few washes you can still smell it on your hair, it lingers like a lovely strong honey smell. If you get the chance to smell it, please do and you'll see what I mean. It's perfectly sweet, I'd rather use it as a shampoo than a body wash as I think it lasts on your hair longer. My only problem with this product is the price, it was £4.25 for the smallest little bottle which is very depressing for my pennies!
Have you used any of these products?
What would you recommend for haircare?
Lots of love xxxxxx
