Okay, so by now y’all probably realize I’m a huge fan of LUSH hair products. I won’t live without their Jungle Conditioner and I will continue to use their Jasmine & Henna Fluff Eaze Hairmask, but I am deeply disappointed in their H’Sua Wen Hua Hair Moisturizer. I’d gotten lots of feedback from LUSH fans that if I liked the Jasmine & Henna hair treatment, I’d love the H’Sua Wen Hua. Not!
I’ve been sporting a two-week old bantu knot out. Even though I’m dealing with a health issue, my hair was in dire need of washing. My curls still looked great and needed little maintenance the past two weeks, but my hair (especially my roots) was feeling a little like felt. Product build-up and single-strand knots do not a pretty picture make.
So, to make the process go as quickly as possible due to limited mobility and lots of pain, I doused my head with the old tried and true, Mane ‘n Tail Detangler. I’ve used this off and on over the years, but never really gave it a second thought. Now, I’ve decided to give this a second chance. My hair was super snarled and gnarly, but this product made the detangling process smooth, easy and fast. In fact, I was so impressed, I think I’ll be keeping this around. So, Mane ‘n Tail Detangler, two coils up for you!
It’s been a hot minute, but I do want to provide a quick prequel to an upcoming post.
- LUSH’s H’suan Wen Hua (not on sale but they also gave me a sample of their Reincarnate solid shampoo with henna bar)
- Hamadi’s Ginger Soymilk Hairwash (with a handful of Shea Hair Cream and Shea Leave-in samples)
- Tropic Isle Living’s Black Castor Oil Protein Conditioner and my usual bottle of JBCO
- Dr Adorable Inc’s 12 oz. bottles of sweet almond, jojoba and avocado oils
On Day Four of my post-Jessner’s Peel, I think I’ve completed most of my peeling stage. The bulk of my skin peeled off on Day Three, leaving pink tingly patches of new skin underneath. I was a little concerned, but this morning, I don’t have tingly pink patches and my skin looks fine and is super soft. I still have a few patches of dry skin, but nothing like compared to yesterday. A co-worker thought I had food on my face my skin was peeling so badly. I just didn’t have the energy to explain the chemical peel process, but for those of you who don’t know what it is, Google it!
Hair, weight and skin are three things I’ve been wanting to improve over the past few years. I tackled my hair last summer and beat that monster, hands down. This spring, I embarked on the battle of the bulge. I initially made some headway, but fell off the wagon so hard around Memorial Day, I might need a step ladder to get back on. But, for the past 10 years, I’ve been plagued by skin issues-the dreaded adult acne!
I’ve had the most delicious little curls all week so I really debated washing my hair this weekend until I remembered I had two new items to try out.
