Lush R&B Hair Moisturiser Review

R&B Hair Moisturiser (100g:)

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This product will make your hair get greasy faster than it would do otherwise. I have really fine hair and also have a fringe, meaning this effect on me was really noticeable! I normally like to wash my hair daily as it is (or at least my fringe,) but when using this product my hair almost NEEDED to be washed daily.

A lot of people really hate the smell of R&B. To me it actually smells nice, but really, a LOT of people dislike its scent, so it’s definitely a product you should smell in store before purchasing.

The scent is really strong and clings to your hair. That means that if you happen to hate the scent of this product, even using the tiniest amount in your hair will cause you to smell of the stuff all day!

Although I personally do like the scent of R&B, just the fact that it is such a strong scent can make the product a little tedious to use. It’s like using the same perfume every single day for a REALLY long time! I mean, I’m not sure how noticeable the scent is to other people when it’s in my hair, but I personally can smell it very strongly throughout the day.

Using R&B correctly could be a struggle for some people. Everyone’s hair is different, so the amount you need to use in your hair wont be the same amount that somebody else needs in their hair. I personally used a really small amount at first, and kept adding more until I felt like there was enough product in my hair for it to have its full effect. After a while I learnt around how much product my hair needed. I also found it best to apply the hair moisturiser after washing and towel drying my hair. I’d begin at the tips, and work my way up to my roots, so that the least product would be on my roots and the most on my ends. I’d then brush my hair through, followed by using a hairdryer to dry my hair whilst running a brush through it. I’d brush one more time and voila! Learning how to use R&B to achieve the best effect for your hair might take some time!


Pros:

I personally love the scent of R&B, and really like the fact that the scent is strong and that it lingers in the hair (most of the time!) To me the scent is a very natural, sweet, buttery, herby floral scent. I REALLY like how it smells in fact, and so does my partner! I’m genuinely surprised by the amount of people that hate the way it smells.

Okay, so as I said before, my hair is SUPER fine. It’s also pretty long. R&B was a life saver for me when it comes to tangled hair. I could never imagine how easy it could be to comb my hair after towel drying it until I started using this product. It doesn’t matter whether your hair is dry, damp or completely wet, R&B makes it SO easy to comb your hair. Brushing my hair is a job that literally went from taking what seemed like 15 minutes to 15 seconds after using this product.

My hair has never felt so healthy and moisturised in my LIFE until using R&B.

R&B would also leave my hair feeling SUPER silky, smooth, soft and looking really shiny. It also helped my hair to look more bright and vibrant – it really helped my natural highlights to stand out! I always loved how my hair looked when I had used R&B.

This product would also help a lot with fighting static – I don’t remember hair static being a problem much at all during the time I used R&B, and it’s normally a pretty big problem for me and my fine hair!

My individual strands would look a lot thicker once I had applied this stuff, which is something I really enjoyed!

I’d find that my hair was stronger, healthier and would break a lot less when I had used R&B. The frequency of finding split ends reduced a LOT.

My 100g pot lasted me quite a long time. I asked my partner to run to Oxford Street after work to grab me a pot of the stuff on the 6th January 2017. I’m not 100% sure when I used it all up but I know it was very recently, so I’m going to go ahead and say that 100g pot lasted me around a year. Not bad!

The feel of the actual product by itself is really lovely. It feels super buttery and soothing.

R&B is a pale creamy yellow colour by itself – it even LOOKS buttery!

Despite what a lot of other people say, this product never made my hair feel greasy in a bad way. It would leave my hair feeling moisturised and healthy, and my hair would only begin to feel and look greasy if I didn’t wash it for over 24 hours. Even then, the greasiness was only really noticeable in my fringe so sometimes I’d just wash my fringe quickly in the morning – and tie my hair up if I was a bit paranoid about the rest of my hair looking greasy.

I didn’t have a conditioner to use in my hair for the longest time, so I relied on using R&B after washing my hair to keep it moisturised. It worked SO well, and a little really did go a long way. When I used it after having conditioned my hair, I’d need such a teeny bit to get the best effect from the product.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I absolutely loved this product and am really upset that it’s all gone now! I could hardly flaw it at all. In fact, I don’t really think I can really find a genuine flaw in the product personally.

I 100% recommend that everyone try a sample of this, or purchase a small pot of it. It isn’t recommended for my hair type but dayum, it worked wonders! I didn’t even think my hair was dry until I started using R&B and realised how healthy my hair could be!

Overall, I rate R&B a solid 5/5* rating.

Lush Rehab Shampoo Review

Rehab Shampoo (100g):

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

I find Lush liquid shampoos to make my hair a little bit tangled. It isn’t a huge issue, but it is definitely something I did notice occur with this particular shampoo.

The scent is very strong! To me it smells like sweet fruit, lavender, mint and tea tree. Mostly mint and tea tree to me, although it actually does not contain any tea tree whatsoever! If you don’t like those sorts of scents, I’d try a different Lush shampoo.

It was very difficult to know how much of this product I would need to use at a time. This shampoo is somehow super inconsistent! Sometimes I’d only need the tiniest amount to lather up my entire head of hair, and other times I’d have to add additional shampoo to my hair 3 or 4 times before being satisfied with the lather.

I don’t fully like the name of this product. Rehab is a word with many negative associations – things I don’t particularly want to pop into my mind whenever I go to wash my hair! I haven’t even be to rehab, but I’m sure this name would be even more disturbing for anyone that has!

Rehab is a very simple shampoo – some people only love Lush for the colourful, creative, innovative, unusual looking products! If you just find simple products to be boring, I’d try a shampoo bar instead!


Pros:

I personally love the scent of this shampoo. It was so unexpected, because most of the ingredients are fruit juices. It really does smell like mint, tea tree and a hint of lavender. It is just the most clarifying, clean smell and I absolutely love it! It also has a sweetness to it, that reminds me of the scent of hard boiled minty sweets.

I think the scent of this product does wonders for your mind too. The clarity of the scent just makes you feel refreshed, de-stressed, clear and ready to start the day with a fresh mind. If you are a person that experiences negative moods / negative ways of thinking frequently, I’d highly recommend you try this shampoo!

Again, for a friend who experiences negative moods often, this would make a really thoughful gift to them! The name might be a tad offensive, but if you just explain to them that the purpose you thought they would like the product is how clarifying and uplifting the scent is, I’m sure they’d be very appreciative!

Okay, so the name is a little odd. BUT, it does make my mind instantly start playing Amy Winehouse’s ‘Rehab’ in my mind – which isn’t such a bad thing!

The consistency of this shampoo is really lovely, as is the colour of it! It is just a super pale, transparent cream colour. Really simple and nice 🙂

I found this shampoo to be quite softening on my hair, and found that it generally lathered up quite well.

This shampoo cleans hair very well.

I found Rehab to have a slightly thickening effect on my hair!

My hair has seemed stronger recently than it usually does. I have extremely fine blonde hair, and usually it feels quite weak. I definitely think Rehab has helped with the strength of my hair!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I think this was a really nice shampoo. It was pretty basic, but felt somewhat like a staple product – everyone could do with a bottle of Rehab in their shower!

Honestly, I didn’t notice any massive change when using this shampoo. My hair does seem thicker and healthier than it used to, but I still lose a lot of hair whilst in the shower, my hair still gets greasy quickly etc. I think that I do overall like this shampoo – it just isn’t absolutely perfect I suppose!

Overall, I’m going to rate Rehab a 4 or a 5 star rating. It is difficult to pick between the two… I’m rating Rehab a 5/5* rating. I was going to give it a 4* rating but honestly, my hair has just been in much better shape recently, which will at least be partially due to Rehab. I’ve hardly been noticing any split ends in my hair and my hair has been both thicker and stronger.
