Iâ€™ve got very curly hair and, as with most curly hair, it can get pretty dry. When it does get dry, it gets frizzy and big. Over the years, Iâ€™ve tried all sorts of conditioners and treatments in a bid to tame it – Aussie 3 Minute Miracle, Moroccan oil, coconut oil – you name it. Some of them were nice, but nothing made a noticeable difference.
When I was doing research for this post on how much I love Lush, I came across their H’Suan Wen Hua hair mask – bit of a weird name, I know, but it sounded so good – â€˜full of protein-rich, nourishing ingredients to revive your hair and improve its conditionâ€™ – and the reviews were great. I picked up a pot the next time I was in Lush and gave it a goâ€¦
My verdict? I love this stuff! It instantly makes my hair feel softer, smoother and less frizzy. My hair is in real need of a cut at the moment, which would usually make it a big, untameable nightmare, but this mask has made it much more manageable. I imagine it would work really for anyone with dry or damaged hair or who, like me, is putting off their next haircut.
I use it once a week, slathering lots onto my dry hair and combing it through to make sure all my hair is totally covered (it has a bit of a weird smell, but not strong enough to put me off). I usually leave it on for at least 30 minutes then rinse in the shower and wash and condition as normal (Iâ€™m currently using Lushâ€™s Curly Wurly and Retread to wash and condition my hair). I have shoulder-length hair and Iâ€™ve probably gotten at least eight treatments out of the pot, which I think makes it pretty good value as well. As testament to how much I love this product, my pot has only just run out and Iâ€™ve already ordered another to replenish my stashâ€¦
Do you have any tips for managing curly hair? Am I missing any other great hair finds?
