I was really excited when I heard that Lush is launching a whole new line of haircare, available in stores this Friday, 11/23. (A perfect stop on your Black Friday shopping adventures, perhaps? If you are not in the mood to venture out, Lush is offering a $10 gift card with any $100 purchase on their website and free shipping.) The line includes a number of hair products that seem exciting, but I was most intrigued by Roots and Superbalm. Today I'll show you Roots, which I am seriously loving for the amount of volume it gives my fine hair. (You can look forward to my review on Superbalm tomorrow! In the meantime, check out all of Dovey's very helpful reviews of the new haircare over at Cute and Mundane!)Formulated for fine hair, this treatment is full of good ingredients like honey and extra virgin olive oil, while mint soothes the scalp. As you might know, I have very fine short hair that definitely benefits from volumizing products. My scalp is quite dry, and often itchy year round, but especially so during this time of year because of the cold weather. I am seriously loving this treatment - the scent is light, especially in comparison to some of the other hair products that Lush has. I don't know how to describe the scent, but it is faintly mint and I am happy that it isn't a scent that sticks around for a day or two. The treatment is light and fluffy in texture, which is fun too - it reminds me of Yoplait Whips yogurt, actually, which makes me smile!
I like to massage this into my scalp, and only lightly into my hair. I leave it in for 15-20 minutes, and rinse it out. I do not think it is as hard to wash out as Lush Hair Doctor, but as usual, rinse well. I'm a rinsing failure and often leave shampoo in my hair, but I am fine with this as long as I pay attention! :)Lush Roots soothes the itchiness in my scalp for a day or two, but my favorite part is the VOLUME! It really is just amazing. Even with dripping wet hair, this gives me TONS of volume, whereas normally my wet hair is just flattened against my head. No hairdryer needed and I've got mega volume! (Though lazy as I am, I wouldn't have used my hairdryer anyway!) I even got compliments on my hair!
My hair has also become quite silky and light, which I didn't even know was possible. This silkiness was immediately noticeable, even the first time I rinsed this out. Woohoo! Who doesn't want silky, voluminous hair? :) I'm in love!
I seriously think anyone with fine hair or flat hair should give this a try. It just may do wonders for you! What do you think of Lush Roots? Have you tried this or any other hair treatment from Lush? Do tell - I'd love to know! :)
