Here is a step by step on how i used the products and how it worked on my hair:
1. First i use a home made Deep conditioner which has 10 tbs (or more depending on how think my hair decides to be) and 10 tbs of olive oil.
You can use any oil of your choice but i like the way olive oil seeps into my hair. Apply and leave that in your hair for 30 mins or more
2. After rinsing the deep conditioner out i go onto shampooing my hair with my first Lush product:
Avocado Co-Wash (£9.95/per 100g):
Now i usually stay away from all shampoos because they generally just strip my hair and never really cleanse my scalp properly so i didn't have high expectations when it came to using this product. BUT OMG.. i mean the application is it a bit annoying seeing as my hair is so thick and its in bar form but it really does what i needed it to which is a deep cleans without my hair feeling like string. I use it by by chopping a little chunk of and rub it in my hair focusing just at the roots.
3. After washing the shampoo out i go onto Conditioning my hair with my second Lush product:
American Cream (£14.95/per 500g):
You can get smaller sizes but my hair is super thick so i definitely need triple the amount a normal person would use in their hair. Anyway this is the second time i used this product first time around i wasn't a big fan but what i realised with most of the products i apply to my hair is that they need to be warm. This time around i heated up some of my conditioner and applied it to my hair, finger detangled and let it sit for 10 min. This really let the conditioner sink into my strands so i give this conditioner natural hair approval.
4. After washing out the conditioner i get onto the fun part! Styling:
I tend to use the LOC method so to re apply moisture to my hair i sprits it with warm water and detangle a bit more if needed with my bestie the tangle teezer. Then i go on to use my styling products which are:
R&B Hair moisturiser (£11.95/per 100g):
Now at first i was scared because i bought the smallest jar and we all now that the whole a little goes a long way theory really doesn't apply to thick natural hair. However i was so surprised when i realised that this really was the definition of a little goes a long way despite my hair texture. I literally only have to use a small amount on each section of my hair and it does the job and then i apply a bit of jojoba oil to loc it in.
Queen Bee (£9.95/per 100g):
Im currently using a sample of this product as i wasn't to sure about it working on my hair because i was worried about it leaving bits in my or just not spreading onto my hair well. To my surprise it didn't only spread well but it tamed my low porosity hair and braught definition to any coils/curls whilst adding an extra burst of moisture into my hair. so I'm definitely going to purchase this and will probably go into my staple product collection.
Hair Custard (£12.95/per 100g):
Yet again I'm currently using a sample of this because i wanted to test it out. This is the last thing i put in my hair.. well this time around because i wanted to stretch my hair texture out and make sure that my braids out would be defined aswell (even thought i will pick it out for the afro look). I absolutely love this product because it really ads to the definition of my natural hair texture with out having to turn to products such as gel. This will definitely be a new staple product if i need definition.
To finish of the styling I put 8 to 10 braids in my hair and let it air dry for as long as i can or until its dry depending on whether or not I'm in a rush.
RESULTS.... are GREAT my hair feels and looks amazing. I just need to figure out a way to make my hair dry quicker *hint hint* Lush
P.s Excuse the continued outfit changes xD
