Smell My Hair – Lush American Cream

I've become quite obsessed with nice smelling hair. No one wants bad smelling hair, but I'm really into proper, nice smelling hair. Hair that actually smells yummy, almost like it's perfumed, infused with a really lovely scent. So I went on the hunt for the perfect product to give my hair a long lasting sweet scent that didn't just smell like... hair product. There's only so much herbal essences a girl can take.

 

Enter Lush's American Cream hair conditioner. A friend recommended this to me as the best conditioner ever. She said it made her hair smell amazing for five days! I wanted some of this magical hair conditioner, so when I went to Cardiff on the weekend I popped into the Lush store to smell it in real life and decide whether it was worth the £9 price tag.


One of the shop assistants saw me eyeing up the bottle and came over to talk to me about it. She told me how it's not like most conditioners which feel all soft and slippery when you apply it in the shower. Apparently, that stuff is full of plastic which fills the hair, without really conditioning it. 

The American Cream conditioner, however, is made with fresh ingredients and there are no funny plastic things in there – meaning the conditioner has a very different feel to it when applied to the hair, because instead of filling the hair, it coats each strand, and when you dry your hair you can feel a real difference in the texture and quality. And, as I was to find out, the smell. Safe to say I had no hesitation in buying a bottle.


You can't really tell by a photo how well a conditioner works, but the ends of my hair are quite dry and really need a good quality conditioner to, well, condition them. I've been a bit gross, and made this product stand the test of time. I washed my hair on Saturday morning – it is now Wednesday evening and the smell of this conditioner has only just started to fade. Four days is pretty good going, considering most hair products lose their scent in under a day. 

The smell of this conditioner is so luxurious, although not quite strawberry vanilla milkshake like it claims. It's more like a rich vanilla with something else I can't put my finger on. Still, it's worth going into Lush to have a sniff for yourself, and if you can bear it, part with £8.95 for a 250ml bottle – but I can honestly say this is the best smelling hair product I have ever tried, and so impressed by how long it lasts. I can't stop smelling my hair... and making other people smell it too :) You can find out more about Lush's American Cream conditioner here.

  1. Your hair is gorgeous, it's so long! I haven't actually had great experiences with Lush conditioners but my hair is in poor disrepair so I need something pretty hard hitting. I am tempted to try it just for the smell as I love having nice smelling hair too! xxxx

    1. Thank you Jessica. I was actually considering getting it cut a bit shorter... Can't decide!
      I haven't tried any other Lush conditioners, but I know what you mean, this isn't a really intense one, unless it's left on for five minutes, in which case the scent lasts for even longer and really works a treat, but i would recommend it just for the smell anyway ;)

  2. Never tried a conditioner from LUSH, but I love the fact that the smell stays for such a long time (and I love vanilla scents as well). Your hair looks so fabulous after using! I think I might give this one a go next time I visit LUSH!!
    Fantastic review!

    1. Thanks Sofie :) it's really really good! You can get a smaller size too, 100ml for £4.50 but I'd recommend the size I got as it's the same size as most other conditioners

  3. I love my hair smelling divine but I can never find any products that make my hair smell so good for a long period of time so this seems like a great product, I'd like to go to lush and have whiff of it myself before I'd consider buying though of course.

    1. Definitely worth trying before buying! That being said, the scent is a lot stronger when it is actually in the hair – strange, I know, but it's true. Mmmm I can't wait to wash my hair again so i can use this :)
