Let me first start by saying that I have always had very fine, thin hair and have tried multiple hair treatments, shampoos, etc claiming to make my hair look great. Unfortunately my hair would either be ONLY volumized, but left dry, or ONLY moisturized, but left flat. So after going through that my whole life, I can confidently say that the Roots Hair Treatment from LUSH is the absolute perfect product for my hair. I will even go so far as to say it is my HOLY GRAIL hair treatment.
The three main ingredients that make this product work so well are peppermint, honey, and olive oil. They are combined in a way that i get every ingredients benefits without one overweighing the others. Peppermint is great for your hair because it balances the pH levels of your scalp, controls oil and supplements dryness. And once your pH levels are balanced properly, your hair can grow faster and healthier. Honey also encourages hair growth due to the sugars it contains. It is also a great moisturizer because it is a humectant, which means it will hold the water/moisture molecules to your hair. Lastly, as you can imagine, Olive Oil is a fantastic moisturizer. It helps combat dandruff, mends split ends, and leaves your hair super soft and shiny (as long as you apply it properly; I knew a girl in high school who gave herself a straight olive oil hair mask, roots to ends, and had to come to school with greasy looking hair for almost a week! eek!) Luckily Lush has balanced this treatment so that wont happen to you!
The scent of Roots is pepperminty with a touch of Lush’s signature weirdness that I can never quite pinpoint. Happily, the scent does not linger in your hair once you rinse it out. The texture is a blend between a cream and a gel, and it spreads decently through your hair. I have very long hair and I use 1 to 2 1/2 tablespoons of product depending on if I am doing a full on hair treatment session or just a quick shower.
Overall I LOVE this product and the results its given me. Here are some pictures of the product:
