love the way this smells!
after going to lush to pick up my usual skin cleansers the lovely sales associate gave me a sample of this conditioner. i am already using the Rehab Shampoo, so i thought i'd give it a try. she gave me a very generous amount so i was able to use it a few times.
i have fine long straight hair. ends are a little dry with some split ends but roots/scalp can be quite oily. the SA recommended i place the conditioner midshaft as i normally do with other conditioners so that's what i did. i scooped out Retread and concentrated it mostly on the ends; there isn't much slip so i can understand why the previous reviewer said she felt like nothing was there. i gently massaged it into my hair and left it on for a few minutes and rinsed it out.
after drying i found my hair to be nice and soft and i looovvee the way this smells. it just smells nice and clean to me. and the scent really sticks for a while so if you sniff it in the store and don't like it, don't bother. don't know if it's just me but even the day after i can still smell the scent of Retread in my hair.
paired with Rehab Shampoo my hair is feeling softer, smoother and much healthier. don't think i will ever go back to using conventional shampoos. definitely ask for a sample!
Maybe my hair is TOO dry?
I went to LUSH yesterday and picked up a few of my favorites. At checkout, the associate asked about the condition of my hair and offered me a few samples. My hair is very coarse, dry, and damaged. She gave me Rehab Shampoo and the Retread Conditioner.
Retread just didn't do it for me. She gave me a decently sized sample of both. I only had to use a little bit of the shampoo but I had to use ALL of the conditioner sample because no matter how much I put on, it felt like nothing was there and my hair didn't have that creamy smooth feel when there is a good conditioner on it. Like I said, I kept putting it on until the sample was all gone. After my hair dried, it was so frizzy it looked like I didn't even use conditioner. :\ I love LUSH, but this product was just a huge miss for me. Glad it was just a sample...
