Hair care has a special place in my life, even though at this point in my blog I have yet to begin to write about the subject, and this post will proudly be the first!
I love hair treatments that go further than a simple wash and condition, or the frequent visit to the salon. Hair oils, sprays, supplements, masks and such! Enter Lush’s Hair Custard. I first heard of it through a very fun beauty podcast I love to listen to called “Fat Mascara”. One of the hosts who is a beauty editor for Haper’s Bazzar (so I obviously take her expert recommendations and move on them), gave Hair Custard an honorable mention, describing how much she’s enjoyed the “scent of vanilla, including argan oil, fair trade organic coco butter, and honey”! I could not agree with her more! it smells divine, and it definitely does look like custard, hence the name lol!? She continues describing the way she likes to apply it to her hair.
Mind you, this is a styling product that can be applied to wet or dry hair. I prefer to apply it to damp hair, after having towel dried it, just before blow drying. So like her, I take a small amount (a little goes a long way), and I spread it on the bottom half of my hair. It works perfectly to detangle hair before brushing it through. A nice plus since wet/damp hair is weaker than when it is dry (fyi). Thing is though, the beauty editor on the podcast mentions how the hair custard gives her lots of moisture and texture to her hair. True again, according to what I have experienced myself with this product, but when it comes to what it does to my hair once the product has settled into my hair, is the opposite to moisturizing. I have tried this hair custard (queue the drinking game) both with dry & wet hair. Yet in either way I end up with stiff, dry ends.
There really isn’t much to using this product as far as I’ve described it and to what the podcast host has said too. I went to Lush’s website and its a pretty basic application process as well. Apply to wet or dry hair and style as usual. IMO as far as how helpful it is at detangling my hair, giving it temporary moisture when damp, and the lovely vanilla scent, I never noticed this product giving any styling benefits to my hair. Just straw-like stiffness.. Unfortunately the complete opposite to what its supposed to do. I even started to think that maybe this styling custard was meant for a certain type of hair, but that wasn’t the case either. The model on Lush’s website applying the hair custard is black, and the beauty editor on the Fat Mascara podcast, who enjoys every bit of this product is a red head. So its clear that Hair Custard is for any type of hair. I guess my hair still feels/looks better with oils rather than custards..
Regardless, I do enjoy the few minutes of vanilla scented hair care brought to me by Lush! and this being the first hair product I try from the brand, I guess the only thing for me to do is to try out the other products they have to offer,, and hopefully I end up finding something I cant live without! But hey!, Hair Custard may be something -you- might enjoy to the fullest, so I’ll totally leave a link! (not affiliated)
