Product Review: New Hair Routine

For this post, I wanted to let you guys in on a fairly new hair routine I have. You see, I have very curly hair, that I obviously style straight on a daily basis. This means that my hair sees a lot of heat, and therefore is very dry. I've been trying different products for years to try and combat the damage I cause, to bring my hair back to health. I think I've finally stumbled upon a routine that has left my hair softer, shinier, and healthier than it's been it years. So, I have listed what I've been using, and how, and hopefully anyone out there with crazy tresses will want to give this a try.

Lush Godiva Shampoo: This shampoo smells great and leaves my hair feeling incredible. It's a 2+1 shampoo/ conditioner, so it's very moisturizing, but I still use a conditioner after washing my hair with this.

Lush Trichomania Shampoo: I use this on days that my hair really needs moisture. It has a lot of coconut oil in it, and leaves my hair clean, shiny, soft, and voluminous.

Lush American Cream Conditioner: In the shower, this doesn't feel like it's doing a great job at repairing your hair. Once your hair is dry, though, you can see and feel the difference. It doesn't leave your hair feeling coated with chemicals; the oils are actually absorbed into your hair. It also smells amazing, and you can see the vanilla bits in the conditioner.

Moroccan Oil: I rub a hint of this oil in between my palms and smooth it on my hair right after I hop out of the shower. It is moisturizing, but mainly helps protect from styling damage.

Lush R&B Hair Treatment: I put a pea-sized amount of this in my hair once it is styled, concentrating on the ends. This stuff is a miracle worker. If there is one thing on this list that you would want to try, this would be it.

Lush Jasmin and Henna Fluff Eaze: Mentioned in this post, I use this about once a month as a pre wash treatment for my hair. I definitely swear by this, but can understand how much of a hassle it may seem to be.

As you can see, I've made quite a transition over to Lush products, and I'm quite pleased that everything works incredibly well, and I'm being healthier about what I'm putting on my body on a daily basis. Using all of this also can seem to be kind of pricey, and while my specific routine is probably more excessive than most, these things do last a long long time, especially Moroccan Oil and R&B. Is there a beauty routine you guys couldn't live without? I'd love to hear all about it!

  1. Great lush review. I did not realize your hair
    is curly. Mine is too, so much work. You should
    wear it curly for a post : )!

  2. It's too wild! I haven't worn it curly out in public in years...

  3. I'm all about hair products, so this review was amazing! I've heard so many great things about Moroccan oil - definitely must try soon! Btw, no idea you had curly hair! I bet it's gorgeous.

  4. Hi there, just found your blog via 'effortless anthro...' love your outfits, esp the one with a touch of leopard! Anyway, i also have long curly hair and every year, I get the Yuko straightening treatment. Its changed my life! I also love Lush products, use their bath bars to scent my dresser drawers.

  5. Aimee- Moroccan oil is awesome! I love the smell too. My curly hair is actually pretty crazy. Maybe one day I'll post it here... when I get a handle on it.

    Anne- Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog! I've tried Yuko, but my hair started thinning out from it, and it scared me from trying it again. Otherwise though, it was pretty awesome, so hassle free!
