Lush Damaged Hot Oil Treatment

Lush is a brand that I am becoming (ok have become) obsessed with and I am beginning to try out products from all of their categories. I have had a love hate relationship with the hair products I have tried so I was so happy to find that I loved this product!

Damaged is a hot oil treatment for the hair when it needs a little TLC. The description says replenish your hair with vanilla and avocado.  It comes in a little hexagon shape on a wooden stick. Very unusual right!

So the instructions for this are you place it in a container (they recommend an empty black Lush pot but I used a mug) and boil some water. Add little amounts of water and stir it gently (basically swirl the stick around).

Keep adding water until you are left with just a stick. This takes around 5 minutes and eventually your treatment begins to thicken up and look really creamy.

It’s quite a surreal experience making a conditioner with water in a mug! You then apply this to DRY hair which I was a bit surprised about at first!

This little guy makes SO much conditioner my hair was absolutely saturated with it. Be careful it will still be a little hot and do this in your bathroom as a little does spill as there’s so much of it!

I made sure everywhere was covered and then some! It doesn’t say you should wrap your hair in cling film but the assistant in the store recommended this as it helps keep it warm and is more intense.

You then leave this on for 20 minutes before rinsing off and shampooing as usual. I popped on my Mask of Magnaminty and had a soak in the bath for 20 minutes! (you can imagine what a sight I looked with a bright green face and cling filmed hair!! attractive, not!)

After I washed it off and styled my hair as usual I could instantly see and feel the difference – my hair felt super soft and hydrated and smooth and silky it was amazing! My hair rarely feels like this even straight after washing so I know it did a great job!

This little guy is only £6.50 which seems steep for one treatment, it is definitely worth it even just to do it once a month because you get SO much of it and it leaves hair feeling amazing! I will definitely get one of these once a month.

Have you tried this or any of the other hair treatments? Let me know below!

Thanks so much for reading!

    The words “oil” and “hair” always scare me when they’re together. Did you find that the product left any residue in your hair or was it just a great mask-type product? 🙂 Great review! x

      Yeah I don’t know why it’s called oil because it isn’t oily at all! It was just like a lovely creamy conditioner! No residue whatsoever – it helps that you do it before you shampoo as well so it’s all washed out! It left my hair feeling really soft and repaired! Thanks Hun thanks for readinf! 🙂 xx

        I’m willing to try anything to get nice, long and healthy hair for my big day 😁 I’d prefer something Lush over horse pee anyway, someone actually suggested it to me, sure I’ll have a bucket load 🐎
