Say hello to good hair days.
For the first time, I have no idea how to start a post. I’m still ‘thrilled’ by the fact RT Hijab Styles is collaborating with my all time favorite brand ‘Lush'( the 15-year-old Rahma is dancing on the cloud nine). I fell in love with the brand ever since I first walked into the colorful aromatic Lush store in UAE. The exquisite fresh floral/fruity smell of a Lush store sweeps me off my feet every single time.
It’s no mystery that I’m a HUGE Lush fan, so I couldn’t resist screaming “OH MY GOODNESS” when I got this huge box of Lush hair care products. Going bananas over the Lush Bath bombs and massage bars was a ritual but how I could never tried their hair care range before is beyond me. For a hijabi whose hair is tied up and covered 75% of the day, this was a neat (very much needed) surprise. The following products were in my Lush box:
- Jason and the Argan Oil Solid Shampoo Bar
- Rehab Shampoo
- Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo
- Big Sea Salt Shampoo
- No Drought Dry Shampoo
- Happy Happy Joy Joy Conditioning Hair Perfume
- Jasmine and Henna Fluff Eaze Hair Treatment
Even though these were sent over a month ago, I still haven’t gotten the time to try them all. Mainly because I do not want these beauties to get over so quickly. Meanwhile, read my review on some of the awesome sauce products.
Big Sea Salt Shampoo: This is my holy grail shampoo. If you want an extra ‘oomph’ look no further, from additional bounce to super shiny hair this body-building shampoo gives you all. The sea salt chunky textures surely adds on some fun, what I love is to massage these chunks on my scalp for a deep cleansing of the product buildup, you can feel that effect right after rinsing it out. To my nose, it is not a very pleasant or appealing odor, but it doesn’t bother me enough to be a deal-breaker. If you deal with oily scalp like me, BIG may be the product for you. As per my experience, BIG is not a daily shampoo, I have been using it only once a week and be sure to use a kick-ass conditioner later on.Though it is on the pricey side, the fullness and bounces it gives your hair is so obvious and nothing less than magical. To my surprise, all my family members love this very shampoo and I could observe such a bounce in my brother’s stiff hair too.
Happy Happy Joy Joy is a lightweight conditioner that is great for detangling and shine. I love that it’s not heavy and does not weigh my hair down. And the scent is to die for! I seriously cannot stop smelling my hair. The blend of rose water, grapefruit oil, almond milk and orange flower is absolutely divine and uplifts your spirit beautifully. Though I wear hijab, people have complimented me on my perfume but it’s actually this lovely fruity conditioner. The fragrance truly lingers on for a very long time and I think everyone should try it at least once. I really am loving this stuff, and I wouldn’t hesitate to repurchase this beauty again.
Rehab Shampoo: Another solution to oily hair, this shampoo will give you a deep & thorough cleansing effortlessly without drying out your hair. It puts your hair into a real good ‘REHAB’. You need to shake the bottle well as the texture of this particular shampoo is quite runny, look at the bright side you will be able to get every last drop of it out. Rehab is a thin, gel-like shampoo with Papaya, Kiwi & Pineapple juices, vegetable oils and stimulating peppermint, the tropical over-powering minty touch is mind refreshing and invigorating.
