LUSH LUSH LUSH 2

I didn’t want to make LUSHful Desires to long of a review so I separated the two reviews I did. The first one was the Hair treatment and now I’m doing the Rehab Shampoo and I’m going to add the process of how I used this particular product!!! 

I gave the Rehab Shampoo a rate of a 3.5 for many reasons: one being that it has sulfate in it & for Curly girls anything with sulfate or paraben is NOT SAFE at all! Also because, it’s not color safe which was another Con but ☝🏾️ Because this particular item is NOT color safe I’m using this item as: 

Calrifier (pretty much once a month or once every six months) which means you’re using a particular product to cleanse your hair from all damage and product build up to regain moisture, strength, growth again.

For hair that needs to focus on *HMR (high moisture retention) use with a leave-in/conditioner

This product will dry out your hair 

A LITTLE GOES A LONGGGGG WAY with this (it lathers quite a lot which means it has sulfate/paraban etc in it but from its natural source)

*High Porosity

My hair type is pretty much 4A-3C (yes I know lol) but it worked for what I was doing-which was to clarify my hair from product build up and damage. Because my hair is colored treated (with SheaMoisture) it dried my hair extremely quickly (felt the harshness while cleaning but knew because my hair is ‘CT’ it will dry and feel stripped although it wasn’t) which was least expected. I will suggest using this product ONLY to clarify and to retain moisture -to use with 1.’H’suan Wen Hua’ first 2. ‘Rehab’ 3. Any leave-in/condition of choice or deep condition right after 
I immediately put coconut oil in my hair because of the dryness (but also because I didn’t have my regular products due to hurricane Matthew and have been an evacuee for 4 days) I liked it -got what I needed and will use to my best ability. Be mindful if you’re natural and transitioning because it can be quite harsh to your hair…. if you’re a person like me that gets scary with sulfate and paraben products, all LUSH prods are natural and some sulfate/parabean/silicone prods come from natural essentials…

Be mindful! Be careful! And maybe it’s time to Clarify!!!

LUSHful Desires 

Eeeeekkkkkkk 😬😁 I brought my first 2 Lush Cosmetics and have been extremely excited lol  !!!  I’ve been drooling over wanting to buy lush products for a while and finally had the opportunity and asked myself “why not?”  So I did it !!

But to begin I’ve been natural for 5 years and I’m enjoying everybit of this journey -for the past two years I’ve been faithful to the product SheaMoisture and I love them BUTTTT -I’m realizing that you have to branch out and find products that really works for you and your form of hair. All lines might not work for your hair type… try DYI’s, try new products; your hair is your personal lab and I rather I be the scientist than an actual stylist playing in my hair *side eye* (I’ve been winning that way) ha! 

Now about the products: I love love love H’suan Wen Hua -hair treatment!!! If you’re a product junkie but also beauty conscious like I Am this product in particular might be your new best friend !

For a while now I’ve been having trouble trying to find the right product that would help retain moisture and not dry my hair out so quickly. My hair type is 4A/3C -it’s thick coarse hair. Going into the Fall/Winter seasons I needed to treat my hair quick and Lord and Behold this beauty fell in my hands! This kind of conditioner is used before you wash your hair which keeps the protein and nutrients in the shaft. Quite the opposite of what deep conditioner does but it still gets the job done. If you’re afraid of product build up because of the how to process for this product, no need to fear moisture will still be in your hair -lol !! All seriousness though if you’ve been needing a good Moisture feeding for your hair, this is the GO TO product!! I highly recommend it for:

Kinky/Curly hair 

Thick/coarse hair

High porosity hair 

For color treated hair use a color safe hair moisturizer/leave-in conditioner after 

*BTW if you use Rehab shampoo for any reason with this hair treatment you will see color drip because neither is color safe!* I only used them together to clarify my hair which will be once a month or once every six months* so be cautious either way. 

I still love it and might wash my hair with a different shampoo or ACV* next time because I love my color and love the moisture this product brings; so I’m using it forever !!! I loved it but be careful and all the synthetics and paraben comes from its essential oil in ingredients !! GO LUSH !! 

Apple Cider Vinegar* 

I will also do another blog on Clarifying and the other product -I didn’t want to make this one too long so BRB 😉🙃
