Today I'm going to be talking about the Tangled Hot Oil Treatment from LUSH! I didn't have the best experience with the Damaged treatment previously, so I was hoping that some advice from my local LUSH girls would help me love this product a little more!
What Does It Do?
"Knot anymore!Just like the Damaged Treatment, I melted this hot oil treatment down with boiling water. This time however, I added much more water to the treatment to thin the texture out so I don't have to shampoo it out so much. However, as the treatment cools down enough for me to handle it with my hands, it just thickens up again. You can see that my left bun looks substantially less chunky than the right because I applied the product to the left one first.
Tame your tangles with this nourishing pre-wash hot oil treatment. Extra virgin olive oil, organic jojoba oil and guar gum make for a rich, silky mixture that smooths out knots and leaves locks gleaming. Rosewood and ylang ylang oils blend together for an exotic floral perfume that envelops the senses and keeps moods bright all day long. Tangles begone!
1. Place your treatment in a heatproof container and boil some water in a kettle. 2. Slowly add several ounces of boiling-hot water to the solid treatment and stir gently using the wooden stick. Take your time, adding water as needed, and allowing the product to thicken until you're left with an empty stick and a rich, creamy treatment. This should take around five minutes. 3. When it's cool enough to touch, apply to dry hair and leave for around 20 minutes to allow the ingredients to get to work replenishing your hair. Shampoo out and admire your luscious locks!"(1)
This time it only took three rounds of shampoo to get the treatment chunks out of my hair which is an improvement. After my hair was dry it looks no different, but to be fair I did notice throughout the week that I had less knots in my hair. However, after the first brush my hairbrush looked super dusty and sticky which was quite gross.
Would I Purchase This Product?No. Although this did reduce the tangles in my hair slightly it still took so long to wash out and is kind of a pain to apply. It's a cute concept, it's fun to make, but for me at least the treatment dries too quickly and is too hard to wash out to actually get the full benefits of the treatment. It seems from most of the reviews on LUSH websites that it is a 50/50 split opinion on whether this works well or not, so take from this review what you will! ^ ^
