Review: LUSH Cosmetics Hair Products

Hi guys! So I wanted to talk to you about some of my favorite LUSH products. If you aren’t familiar with the brand, it’s fresh handmade cosmetics, and they’re fabulous. I’ve recently switched to using LUSH hair products for my shampoo and conditioner and I couldn’t be happier.

I am IN LOVE with this shampoo. It’s almost a cross between and solid and a liquid shampoo? In the shampoo, it’s like a watery paste. There are little salt crystals that dissolve as you rub it into your hair. It’s exfoliates your scalp and gives your hair so much more ‘umph’, that’s the only way I could describe it. It will add some shine to your hair as well, so that’s a bonus. But I don’t recommend using this every time you wash your hair, just to give your hair a little break from the crystals and the deep wash. Obviously you shouldn’t wash your hair every day because it’s bad for your hair, and if you have oily hair I think this helps a lot to fix that because I find myself with less oils in my hair after using this. 

This is the other shampoo that I use, when I switch off from using BIG all the time. It’s a sweet little liquid shampoo and has a really delicate and nice scent to it. It’s not powerful, so it’s not going to overwhelm you, but the scent will stay nicely on your until you use other products to style it or whatnot. I don’t like scents that are too powerful on my hair, because I feel like they can clash with my perfumes sometimes? This doesn’t do that. It gives my hair a rich feeling. After washing it, my hair isn’t silky soft to the touch while I’m in the shower (same with BIG) BUT THAT DOES’T MEAN IT WON’T BE WHEN IT DRIES. Don’t let that scare you. It means it’s just not filled with excess oils or anything like that. But when it dries, your hair is left soft with a sweet sugary scent. Oh, and I bought the smallest bottle to try it a few months ago, and since I’m using it as a backup to BIG, I’ve barely hit halfway. So you just need a quarter sized amount and it will last you a long time.

This is my favorite conditioner out of any brand of conditioners that I have ever tried. I know that’s a big statement but the results you’ll get with this product will show you what I’m talking about. It’s a very creamy conditioner, meaning it doesn’t lather in any way. You apply it and rub it into your scalp, and you just have to push it around to where you think it needs to go. It will wash out nicely, but it’s not until you’re out of the shower and you’ve given your head a shake that you’ll actually see the results. As it dries, your hair becomes so soft and sweet smelling. I towel dry my hair when I first get out of the shower and then when I take it out of the towel, my hair feels amazing. If I want to style it and dry it with a blow dryer, I can just feel my hair getting softer with the heat. Even if you air dry, you get a great result. Overall, if you had to get one LUSH hair product, make it this one because you won’t be sorry. my skin so soft and nice, and if you use them twice a day, your skin will be less dry and flakey quickly. With this lotion, I don’t really like the scent? I’m excited to try their other lotions, but the reason I use this one is the scent disappears in about two minutes and you’re left with the softest skin. This is why I bought it in the store. It’s not a bad scent? It’s just not one that I prefer. But the scent does go away and I even recently got my mom hooked on their lotion for how soft they make her skin. It’s really a great place to buy lotion.
