I am someone who takes really great care of my hair.
I invest significant time, effort and money to make sure it looks great – probably something to do with being South Asian. Through this, I have tried higher-end products to see if a higher price would give me a better result. The results are in – they don’t!
The $13.95 Lush Hot Oil Treatment is still my favourite hair mask, and has been for years. They offer several different types, however I am going to discuss the range as a whole as I find the results to be quite similar. I’ve tried to deviate from this product, trying luxury hair masks such as the Aesop Rose Hair and Scalp mask, but always go back to the Lush treatments. This is due to the results that they give my hair.
I usually use this hair mask once a week, and align it with a hair wash day. I’ll cut it into three pieces so I can get three uses out of the one mask. My hair is nearing bum-level, so I would recommend people with shorter hair to cut even smaller pieces. Once I have my piece, I’ll place it in a bowl and slowly stir in boiling hot water, making a paste. I’ll then apply this warm paste to my hair, massaging it into my scalp. I’ll leave it on for 15 – 20 minutes and then wash it out.
Okay, this is where the magic happens. After using this product, my hair always looks softer, shinier and more voluminous and these results often last 1 – 2 weeks. Over time, I have noticed that applying the warm product to my scalp also has greatly improved my scalp health resulting in less irritation and itching.
After using this product religiously for years, I highly recommend it to anyone looking to give themselves a hair transformation!
