LUSH VEGANESE HAIR CONDITIONER
So yet another Lush review on Dooyoo, I know there are a lot of us Lush fans on here but they really do have a lot of amazing products. I am a recent convert to Lush, I had thought they were a store that simply made bath bombs and soaps! My sister and mum call it that shop that smells the street out! And I have to admit you can usually smell a Lush shop before you see them but I love the smell.
I admit I have looked at the shampoo's and conditioners a few times when in Lush recently but the price tag is hefty when I can buy many top brands in the £1 stores these days however I have been suffering a lot with residue and build up on my hair and when I was away recently I forgot my travel shampoo and conditioner and face wash, genius I know! My face wash is from Lush so I pottered along to the local Lush store to replace my face wash and spotted travel sized bottles of the shampoo and conditioner and thought I might as well give them a go.
The assistants in Lush are wonderful, I have only met one so far that has not been oober helpful. They will listen to what you want from products and help you work out what is best for you, If there are several choices they will usually suggest trials of them and will happily sort those free of charge for you. They will also actually demonstrate products for you in the store which I find really helpful.
THE PRODUCT ....
So the product I am reviewing today is a hair conditioner, this is the lightest of Lush's range of bottled conditioners, it is designed for everyday use and is suitable for all hair types. The conditioner looks a little bit like a bottle of blended banana juice in colour with a shine to it. The conditioner is a lot thinner in consistency than those I am used to using but is thick enough to stay in a pool on your hand when cupped and not run everywhere.
When you open the bottle to this product you can instantly smell the lemons, it really does smell like a nice refreshing fresh lemonade, it's very sweet but refreshing. The assistant in Lush informed me that the lemons give the hair a lovely shine and that this conditioner is supposed to help provide a really nice shine to the hair.
To use you simply tip some of the product into the palm of your hands, rub them together and smooth through your hair. This is of course after shampooing and rinsing your hair first. The amount of product you need really will depend upon your hair type and length, for me I needed an awful lot of this conditioner to be effective, my hair is thick and seemed to almost inhale this conditioner.
THE PACKING ....
This conditioner is one of Lush's bottled ones and comes in a range of three different sizes, all of the bottles are clear plastic so you can easily see the product inside, the lid of the bottle is on the top, is black plastic and has a flip cap.
The paper label on the bottle is black at the front with white text and white at the back with black text which really does look striking. The name of the conditioner has prominent position at the top of the bottle and then an odd blurb from Lush which is bypassing me! It says "I'm turning Veganese, I think I'm turning Veganese, I really think so." Way over my head I am afraid - answers on a post card to ....
It then informs us that the product contains Lemons for shine, Seaweed for softness and herbal infusions for our scalps. That it is a light conditioner for all hair types, not just for vegans.
At the very bottom is a small Lush logo and a logo informing us that the product is suitable for vegans.
The back has the usual types of information, how to use the product and the ingredients it also informs us that the lid of this bottle can be recycled at any local lush store and the bottle has been made from 100% recycled plastic.
SIZE AND COST ....
The bottles have gone up recently and as I say are a little costly although having now started using them I would say are totally worth the cost.
This conditioner comes in three bottle sizes :-
100g at £4.15
250g at £8.15
500g at £13.15
This is not my favourite of the Lush conditioners, it is a little light for my hair and as I said about my hair drinks this particular conditioner meaning I need a lot of the product.
Does it do it's job though? Yes! This conditioner really does leave a lovely shine on your hair and my hair smells like lemons for around 24 hours after use. I find myself shaking my hair to smell it! I look like something off a hair care advert lol.
Would I recommend this product? That part really is up to the individual, if you have very dry hair then I am not sure this is the conditioner for you, it is the lightest of the Lush conditioners and if like me your hair requires a little more strength then this may not be for you.
I actually have been using this conditioner in conjunction with a hair treatment that you use on dry hair prior to shampooing. I find that it just adds a nice shine to my hair and looks really nice when straightened. This would be too weak for me to use daily but I can not mark the conditioner down because it does do what it says on the bottle.
For me this product is 4 stars it's good but not quite perfect, I feel it could just do with a little more in it to make it provide a tiny bit more softness to the hair and unfortunately contains lauryl sulfate.
Summary: Nice conditioner but needs a little more in it to add to softness.
