Lush Hot Oil Treatments – The weather is getting colder, and winter can be very brutal to the hair if not looked after. I know a thing or two about damaged hair, I’ve been there done that. When it comes to hairstyle, whether its something to do with chemicals or natural and simply not treating my hair regularly. My excuse is “I just don’t have the time for it” (Not really a good one is it?).
So with the ‘Natural hair’ being very ‘trendy’ right now. A lot of natural sisters are boycotting salon treatment and taking on DIY at-home treatments taking product recommendations from YouTube.
About Lush Hot Oil Treatments
I’ve been a massive fan of Lush for a while. Not just because the beautiful smell of their store draws you in from kilometres away. But because all their products are FRESH and NATURAL. To make matter even greater Lush have introduced a whole new range for natural hair. They now have a more extensive range of hair care products suitable for Afro hair. I have put the Hot oil treatments to the test.
The Hot oil treatments are something totally new to Lush, and it’s making a big wave with everyone. The hot oil treatment consists of 3 essential treatments (Damaged hot oil treatment, Kinky hot oil treatment and Tangled hot oil treatment) that the hair requires to stay looking good and healthy. The whole range of the hot oil treatment works hand in hand, and if used religiously, you will see significant improvement with the texture and well-being of your hair.
I have used the Damage hot oil treatment and kinky hot oil treatment, and it has left my hair well moisturised and hydrated with define curl patterns.
The Hot Oil Treatments were inspired by hot chocolate on a stick, it’s a playful idea that doesn’t make the 5-10mins prep time a chore!
Lush Hot Oil Treatments
This oil pop is packed with extra virgin Olive (is known for moisturising and protecting factors), shine-enhancing almond (rehydrating agent for the skin and hair) and avocado (very rich and conditioning) oils to replenish deeply and rehydrate dry and thirsty mane. It will revive the most ‘damaged’ hair from the very first use, it revived mine and left my hair feeling soft and hydrated.
Kinky Hot oil treatment –
This treatment hydrates curly hair, with protective lanolin to strengthen natural curls, this restorative treatment delivers intense moisture without diminishing the bounce and volumes of the hair. The key ingredients in this are vetivert oil (known for restorative and relaxing), rosewood oil for antiseptic and uplifting, ylang-ylang for exotic scent. It leaves the hair “enviously silky” with hydrated curls.
Tangled hot oil treatment –
A pre-wash Peruvian rosewood and ylang-ylang treatment to tame tangles. Just like Damaged and kinky hot oil treatment, the creamy mix of softening, strengthening oils increase tensile strength and allow you to easily comb.
Some may say the prep of the hot oil treatment is messy. But I suppose if you make a cup of tea without making a big mess, then you can certainly mix up this creamy thingy. As long as you follow the given instructions, then the process will be a walk in the park.
Instructions on how to use Lush Hot Oil Treatments:
Place the treatment into a small/medium container (think of it as you are making a cuppa). You then slowly add a small amount of hot water to the solid treatment and stir until it melts. Add more water if needed depending on how big the solid treatment you want to use. Stir until the mix thickens and entirely melted into a creamy texture. Once the mix has melted, then you apply the mix to dry hair and leave to seat in for 20mins. Allow the product to get to work before shampooing leaving you hair hydrated, soft and replenished.
The hot hair treatments are available online or at your nearest Lush store for £6.50 each. Have you tried any of the hot oil treatments by Lush? If you have what do you think of it? comment below
