Weird texture but hear me out

star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-empty

Portland,Or | 15 days ago

I also experienced the snotty, slime product and was a little concerned. HOWEVER after reading the ingredients it made a little more sense, so here is what I did and some reasons why its so snotty: GUAR GUM and HENNA are two products that love water. Guar gum is used as a binder and if not dilluted properly can create a slime. I use this a lot for baking. LUSH HENNA, I used the brun henna recently and needed about 3x the weight in water to make it smooth. Could have probably used more. I did 6oz of henna and ended up using about 15-18oz of water by weight. So with this in mind I ended up using about 2 cups of water for the entire tab of hair oil. I probably only needed about 1/4 of it because I have super thick hair but it is short, like pixie cut short and grown out. I think if you have hair to your midback or longer you could use the entire thing with this ratio. Also, you need to use incredibly hot water, like too hot to touch boiling water. This will help break it down. The instructions do say to wait until you can touch it to put it on your head, so it will be warm when using. Then, when washing it out, use a comb to brush the snotty parts out of your hair and then use a neutralizing shampoo to wash it out. Apply a little bit of conditioner to your ends. I used the hottest water to wash it out and then turned it down to finish shampooing and washing it. Only needed one shampoo. Hope this helps Ps. does smell weird but the smell wont stick around after you shampoo.

This was really disappointing...

This product has made my hair feel awful. It's really difficult to wash out and I've had to shampoo my hair three times... yet I am still finding little gluey bits of this in my hair. Other reviews are right - it does feel like snot. And because of how much shampoo and hot water you have to use to get it out, it makes your hair feel worse than before. On top of it all, the smell it not great. Lush, you should pull this from your shelves ASAP.

Weird Texture

Baltimore | 1 month ago

I've used all the lush hot oil treatments and love them. However not a big fan of this one. I bought this one thinking it was the one with clay in it and was confused by the texture. Once it's melted it becomes like slime and gooey. Very difficult to apply to hair and you have to wash your hair multiple times to get it out. I still ended up having clumps in my hair afterwards. It also does not smell very great. I have curly hair and did like how it felt and looked after I washed it out but not worth the hassle.

Rubbery glob

star-star-filled star-star-empty star-star-empty star-star-empty star-star-empty

Washington DC | 2 months ago

I was so excited for this since I love Lush hair treatments, but this almost immediately turned into a rubbery, sticky glob. It was hard to get onto my hair, but then WAY harder to get out. It took me about a half hour to finally get the solidified slime out of my hair. It also clogged my bathtub drain. Don't buy this.

Something is not right....

I normally love the deep conditioning products but this one became one big stinky, sticky glob to the point where I couldn't even use it. So disappointing!!!!

Took 3 showers to get it all out

MI | 2 months ago

I was expecting this product to assist in calming my irritated scalp and frizzy hair. However, it took me so many washes to get out all of the product it left my hair stripped and in worse condition than before. I would not recommend this product based on texture, lack of treatment effectiveness, and the smell was unpleasant.

Great for dry frizzles

Washington, DC | 3 months ago

My review was mistakenly put under Damaged but was for Hair Doctor. Again, this is great to soften thicker, curly hair, which can take tons of oil and product. I never follow instructions, go with intuition, so dunked until I had a small amount of mixture, maybe 1/4 of total. Stirred into boiling water and everything dissolved. And I have plenty left for additional treatments, so not so expensive.

Only Lush product I don't like

star-star-filled star-star-empty star-star-empty star-star-empty star-star-empty

Graham, NC | 3 months ago

I had high hopes for this, but was realized quickly the mistake I made by purchasing it. The texture after it was melted was gooey and slimy and didn't apply well to the hair. Once it was on, the cooling sensation was actually quite nice on my scalp, but the smell made it not even close to worth it. I gagged the whole time putting it on it was so bad! I'm a lush lover and use lush for everything from bath, shower, and skincare routine, but this was a total miss for me.

Sticky and gummy

star-star-filled star-star-empty star-star-empty star-star-empty star-star-empty

Boston | 3 months ago

Echoing what other one star reviews say. It's a sticky, gummy mess that took three or four times my average shampoo time to wash out. I'm not new to hot oil treatments or hair clay masks, and this was the most difficult to use. Go with Damaged instead.

Leaving soon for a reason!

Even strictly following the directions, I was left with a gloopy, gross-smelling, gunk that needed multiple washes with shampoo to remove. I would forgive this if it was effective, but my hair doesn't feel softer and my scalp is itchy and dry. In fact, my hair is in even worse shape because of how many times I needed to wash it to completely remove Hair Doctor. I buy Lush products frequently, but this was the only product that actually inspired me to write a review. This was a waste of money. If it wasn't a single use product, I would return it to the store and get my money back. Sometimes we get upset when certain products are discontinued. I'm actively rooting for this one to go.
