Review: Lush H’suan Wen Hua

image

Full of protein-rich, nourishing ingredients to revive your hair and improve its condition. Free-range eggs are full of protein and have been used for centuries to help strengthen the hair. Fresh bananas and avocados, which are both rich in oils, deeply moisturise and soften the hair. We believe good hair starts at your roots, so we’ve added bay leaf infusion and cinnamon leaf oil to stimulate the scalp.

I brought this out of the blue while passing Lush. I’ve never really brought Lush treatment products so thought this would be a good time to start! After having a browse I picked up this. I did a review on my first impressions of this product here.

Application
Massage a generous amount into dry hair and leave for 20 minutes before shampooing and conditioning

Review
My hair is usually in bad condition from bleaching and straightening if I don’t use products to maintain it. I have alot of problems with split ends and my hair breaking off. I sectioned my hair so I knew I covered as much hair as possible. It was easy to apply which was nice but it was rather messy doing it! I left it on for about an hour before washing off. It was easy to wash out which is nice because there is nothing I hate more then trying to get stuff out of your hair, like bleach! After shampooing and conditioning I whipped my hair up in a turban and moisturised. I noticed when drying my hair, it died much quicker then usual. My hair usually retains water and it’s a nightmare to dry but it seemed to dry quicker now. My hair didn’t feel weight down from using this which is what I find with some treatments. It was so easy to brush too after washing, which is always good because no one wants to be lugging out clumps of hair! I could not stop touching my hair when it was dry. I had to stop myself because my hair would go greasy the more I touched it. I told my friends at work I was using it and they kept touching my hair when I came in! After a couple of days my hair started to get a little dry which I was a bit disappointed with, but after washing again it felt silky smooth.

Conclusion
At £9.50 for 225g it’s a bit expensive. If you have short hair you only need to use half a tub, but if you have thick long hair like me you will end the whole tub which can be expensive. The woman in the shop advised it be used once a week for 6 weeks if your hair is in really bad condition. I’m thinking of maybe using it once every 2 to 3 weeks and see how I get on. There are much cheaper options on the high street, but if you love natural ingredients and fair trade product and knowing none of these products are being tested on animals then lush is your shop. You also get a free fresh mask when you being back 5 of there tubs into store!

Have you tried this product? Have you tried any other lush hair treatments? Let me know!

Hello beauties! I’ve never really brought many Lush products to be honest. I’ve brought there bath bombs but never really any of there treatments for hair and skin. So I thought I would pop in and have a look. I talked with a lovely girl in my local shop. I got to the till and she explained to me how to use the product, how often to use it, how it works and how to get the best out of it. I was really impressed with her knowledge. It’s nice to go somewhere and get such good advise from someone that seems to know what they are talking about. When I got home I saw a sticker on the product telling me who made this and when it was made. I loved this. It’s such a nice touch. Feels more personal. I also noticed it said on the lid Bring back 5 clean full size Lush pots or tubes & get one fresh mask free! I’ll be collecting mine then! Love they encourage you to recycle even though I would anyway but it’s nice to get something from it!

A nourishing mask full of protein rich ingredients to strengthen and restore hair

The texture is really creamy and it smells devine. It’s quite thick so I expect it to be easy to apply. But not too thick that it’s clumpy. This hair mask is to be used before shampooing and i recommend applying it while your bath/shower is running because the stream will opens up the hair follicles.

So what’s exactly in this and what does it do…
For Shine: Bay and watercress infusions, balsamic vingegar and rosemary oil.
For Restructure of Hair: Fresh free range eggs and soya lecithin
For Moisture: Lanolin, from sheep’s wool, Fresh organic bananas and avocados
For Strength: Olive oil
For Antiseptic Qualities: Cinammon leaf oil
For Toning: Bay leaf

I was also given this catalogue. It tells you a bit about lush and lists the products they sell. It gives you details like what each product does, how to store, ingredients, how to use and price. I’ve enjoyed flicking through it. I’ve already circled some items I want to try next!

Review on this item will be up as soon as I’ve used it!
