What’s it smell like?
I think it smells like honey and wildflowers, and whenever I use it I feel like I’m in a beautiful field in spring. It’s sweet and fragrant, but not overpowering, and is a great way to start the day.

How often can you use it?
I wash my hair almost every day – but sometimes I wake up an hour late (oops!) – and have to rush out the door without clean hair – thank god for dry shampoo!

What hair types is it best for?
This shampoo is suitable for all hair types, it’s a gentle cleanser that won’t dry out your hair, but also works on greasy hair. Whether your hair is straight, curly, frizzy or somewhere in between, this shampoo leaves your hair soft and shiny.

Would I rate it?
Definitely – top marks to Fairly Traded Honey!

Where can you get it?
Any Lush store and online.

Veganese Hair Conditioner

Ingredients:
Lavender Flower Infusion (Lavandula angustifolia)Rosemary Infusion (Rosmarinus officinalis)Agar Agar Gel (Gelidium cartilagineum)Cetearyl Alcohol (Cetearyl Alcohol)Propylene Glycol (Propylene Glycol)Cetearyl Alcohol & Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (Cetearyl Alcohol & Sodium Lauryl Sulfate)Cetrimonium Bromide (Cetrimonium Bromide)Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum)Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax tonkinensis pierre)Fresh Organic Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum)Citral (Citral)*Limonene (*Limonene)Perfume (Perfume)
All these ingredients are either natural or are safe synthetics!

What’s it smell like?
It’s got a citrusy vibe, which makes it very energising and fresh. The ingredients state that it also has lavender, but it doesn’t smell much like it.

How often can you use it?
This is a light conditioner – so you can use it every day!

What hair types is it best for?
This is a very light conditioner that doesn’t leave residue in your hair, which makes it great for fine hair. I have very fine hair – but a lot of it – and I love this conditioner. I’ve used many conditioners in my life, and this is the best one for me, it doesn’t weigh my hair down. When my hair gets weighed down by conditioner I get a lot more hair fall. It’s Winter in Australia right now, and my hair gets crazy dry in Winter, which means I need a really good conditioner, and Veganese does the job!

Would I rate it?
Definitely – Veganese gets 5 out of 5 stars from me!

Where can you get it?
Any Lush store and online.

All these ingredients are either natural or are safe synthetics!

What’s it smell like?
Lemony fresh!

How often can you use it?
This is an intensive hair treatment – use it once a week at most.
I use it once a fortnight because while its a big tub, you’re supposed to saturate your hair in it, and that takes a lot of product, making each tub good for about 3 applications.

What hair types is it best for?
This hair treatment is best for blonde hair – bleached or natural – as it helps to keep those brassy tones at bay.

Would I rate it?
Yep – Marilyn leaves my hair soft, shiny, bouncy and way less brassy.

Where can you get it?
Any Lush store and online.
