My hair felt fantastic after using this!

Comments about LUSH H'Suan Wen Hua Conditioning Treatment:

I notice that this LUSH product has a lot of haters, but I just have to disagree with them. Let me tell you a little tale about a woman who wanted Aveda's "Icelandic Blonde" super-light blonde hair shade. She went to a stylist and had them lift all the healthy, natural color out of her hair in preparation for "Icelandic Blonde", which turned out a hideous, brassy yellow. The distraught woman frantically made a correction appointment and dyed her hair to a color that resembled her original color, but the damage was done: her hair was appallingly thin, broken, frizzy, fried, and an overall mess. If you haven't guessed, that unfortunate woman was me.

Luckily, I had an unopened container of this LUSH hair treatment, and I decided to try it. I swear, my hair felt so healthy when I was done. It felt soft, and way thicker than it had before the treatment. The soft, healthy feeling lasted for quite a while, perhaps a couple of weeks (I don't wash my hair every day though).

Effectiveness
Amazing. After trying this, I looked up the ingredients and tried to DIY my own version, because the LUSH stuff is expensive. Unfortunately, the DIY concoction I made did absolutely nothing good for my hair. I will definitely be buying this again.

Scent
I know people are complaining, but I didn't mind too much, especially when I experienced how effective the treatment is.

Very different scent, but a fantastic conditioner

By 

from USA

Comments about LUSH H'Suan Wen Hua Conditioning Treatment:

The Bottom Line: This LUSH H'Suan Wen Hua Conditioning Treatment does smell great, but is as moisturizing as a conditioning treatment can get. This will make your hair incredibly soft and look a whole lot healthier, especially if you have dry hair.

I stumbled upon this conditioning treatment in one of their London stores while on a trip, and I bought it because I liked the very thick texture. The scent is very particular and one that may turn people off but the results it gives are worth it. Other than the scent, this conditioning treatment works! It has tons of natural, nutritious ingredients, and it will make a difference, especially if you have dry and brittle hair.

Effectiveness
The ingredients in this conditioner are completely natural, and just to name a few, it has Fresh Bay Infusion, Fresh Watercress Infusion, Fresh Free Range Eggs, Fresh Bananas , Fresh Avocado, Balsamic Vinegar , Olive Oil, Rosemary Oil...With a formula like that, your hair is getting tons of moisturizing power and it shows. The first time I used it, I used about a quarter of a tub, wrapped my hair into a knot the put a shower cap on, then they say to let it sit for at least 20 to 30 minutes, but I let it sit for 45 minutes. It rinses off really well, leaving behind super soft hair. After letting it air dry, I could tell that my hair was softer, shinier, and had much less frizz than normal. Every time I have used this treatment, my hair come out looking amazingly soft and completely re-hydrated.

Scent
This is a very different type of scent one will have to smell for themselves before buying, I think. There is an underlying cinnamon scent, but some people have described as smelling like salad dressing. Either way, the scent is not that strong and once on your hair, it is not so overwhelming that you won't want to use it again.

If you want a non-conditioning conditioner, pick this one up!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about LUSH H'Suan Wen Hua Conditioning Treatment:

First off, what the heck is H'Suan Wen Hua? I can barely spell it, much less pronounce it. The name is as confusing as the product itself. I've been a huge fan of lush for years. I can count on one hand the number of LUSH products that have failed me, and the H'Suan Wen Hua Conditioning Treatment is one of them.

As this product is a 'conditioning treatment,' I expected it to be more moisturizing than their other conditioners. However, I found that to be the opposite in the case of this product. I thought this treatment was less moisturizing than other conditioners I've tried from LUSH.

After applying this to my hair and leaving it to sit for several minutes, I'd rinse the product out only to have non-conditioned hair. It would be as if I'd just left shampoo in my hair. This product has no conditioning properties whatsoever. For the most part, I'd have been better of not applying any conditioner at all.

Stay far away from this "conditioner."

So-So Moisturizing Cream for Hair

By 

from Ann Arbor, MI

Comments about LUSH H'Suan Wen Hua Conditioning Treatment:

I have very thick, coarse, curly hair. This is intended as a moisturizing treatment for dry hair (kind of like a hair mask). For me I found that this is not the most effective pre-treatment mask. I have a lot of hair so I have to use a lot of product, which makes this expensive for me to use on top of all that. Anyway, the way this works is that you apply it to your hair, allow it to sit for at least fifteen to twenty minutes, and then proceed with washing and conditioning hair in the shower. Ideally, your hair comes out extra soft after all this. For me, while this did not dry my hair out, it also did not add to the softness that I get from my standard routine. Therefore, I cannot justify the cost of purchasing this for my hair.

The product comes in a black tub which you can return to LUSH for recycling (if you return 5 tubs you get a free face mask).

For those sensitive to smells, this does not have the most appealing scent, as a heads up.

Do you really want Dr Pepper and raw eggs on your head?

By 

from Annapolis, MD

Comments about LUSH H'Suan Wen Hua Conditioning Treatment:

**The Verdict:**  **H'Suan Wen Hua** works well on my extremely healthy hair, but I just can't get past the scent that lingers with me all day.  There are other products that work just was well, if not better, and smell a lot better too.

**Just the Facts:**  About a year ago I stopped doing things that are really hard on my hair and as a result it is in very good condition.  Even so, there are still days when my hair feels a little dry and abused, like when I'm driving around in the convertible or out on the sun or pool for too long.  So when my hair starts to feel a bit dry on the ends I turn to conditioning treatments. 

I generally like LUSH's [Retread conditioner][1] for this purpose but when I used up the last of my Retread I decided to try something new in my quest to try every LUSH product that does not contain jasmine.  The something new I tried is **H'Suan Wen Hua** which is described on LUSH.com as follows: *Nourishment for worn-out hair.  A wholesome feast that softens and adds weight and shine to really dry, tangled, bushy hair. Fresh bay infusion tones as it wards off harmful microbes and stimulates the scalp. Meanwhile, watercress infusion nourishes with oodles of vitamins and minerals that strengthen the scalp and hair and stimulate growth. Additional conditioning comes from fresh free-range eggs, bananas and avocados. Balsamic vinegar smooths cuticles and gives fantastic shine. Named after the Cantonese god of hair, this leave-in hair treatment delivers all its promises and more. *

The thing that held me back from using HWH in the past is that it is supposed to be applied to dry hair, left on for 20 minutes, then washed out and and followed by conditioner.  I just don't think about conditioning until I'm in the shower so a pre-shower conditioner didn't interest me. 

After I bought HWH, the next thing that struck me was the smell.  It smells like a combination of cinnamon, Dr. Pepper, and raw eggs which is not the first thing I want to smell in the morning. Or any time of the day for that matter.

When I applied HWH I was disappointed to find that I needed to use about a quarter of the 8 ounce tub to adequately coat my hair and even then I felt that I could have used more.  I left it on my head for 20 minutes then washed and conditioned as usual.  I was really happy to wash the stink off of my head and didn't expect to have very good results.  The results on my very healthy hair were good and on par with other products such as Retread or the HealthySexyHair Pumpkin Masque that I occasionally use.  But what I don't like is the scent that lingers on my hair all day.  My hair feels great but that eggy, cinnamon scent is not what I want to smell all day.  Yick.

**Closing Argument:** This conditioner works well on my very healthy hair. I've used it on my hair when it had a little dryness and damage and it worked OK but I'm not sure it would make make much difference on hair that is more dry and damaged.  I recommend it but suggest requesting a sample from LUSH before you invest in a whole container of H'Suan Wen Hua so you can decide if you can live with the unique scent.

It's called 'Goddess of Hair' for a reason!

By 

from Snohomish, WA

Comments about LUSH H'Suan Wen Hua Conditioning Treatment:

This is a Lush staple for me.  I've been using it for years.  I have very straight hair and it gives it a nice shine, makes it soft and smell delicious!  It's smells sort of spicy, like cinnemon or nutmeg.  If your scalp itches a bit or has a bit of flaking, this stuff will help out.  I like using it as a treat once in awhile when I feel like I've been bad to my hair. The only downside, is it is a little hard to use, but then again, I feel like any 'at home treatment' is difficult, but worth it.  It's best applied librally with your hands on dry hair and spread evenly with a wide toothed comb.  When it has fully covered all your hair, then pin it up and let it soak in for 15 mins or an hour (for as long as you want really, I like to watch TV as I wait!)  Then wash and condition as usual.  Enjoy the softness.  Be the godess within...
