There appears to be this on going debate as to whether pre-poo treatments are in fact necessary. Can applying a moisturizing concoction to hair strands prior to cleansing make any difference? If your hair’s been put to the test, is strung out, dried out, and overworked from the winter chill, I’d venture a guess and say yes! Then again, walk into any Lush store across the continents and rest assured you’ll find the most attentive, convincing associates who have no qualms convincing you as well.
Over the past few years, I’ve managed to have zero will power when entering a Lush store. The incredibly happyish staff, the yummy smell of Gorilla perfumes & bath bombs with cutsy names like Tisty Tosty and Phoenix Rising. I dare any beauty girl to exit a Lush store with nary a sample of freshly handmade goop. It can’t happen.
H’Suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment (pronounced swan-wen-waa) is one in a family of hair treatments from Lush that I’ve introduced to FRO when strands are in need of major intervention. In this case, it’s a battle of dry and brittle ends. Nestled in this wee pot is a mixture of eggs (protein juice) fresh organic avocado, extra virgin olive oil (moisture & shine) & cinnamon oil (not sure what this does, but so necessary cuz this stuff stinks).
Yes, the smell is….well, it takes some getting used to, though the benefits had FRO feeling & looking better. Before the poo, strands felt soft, and smoother around the ends…which was the intended goal. Hair food for strung out curls that are need of long overdo TLC are a necessary tool in any girl’s beauty box, I don’t care what you reach for. Will I use again. Yes. Funky smell and all.
