LUSH Retread Conditioner Review


         I'm an avid fan of LUSH's conditioners. They contain active natural products and don't rely on silicone fillers to give your hair a soft conditioned feel. My bottle of LUSH American Cream is almost out, so I was happy to get a full-size bottle of LUSH Retread Conditioner. Retread is LUSH's richest conditioner (over American Cream and Veganese). It conditions with a seaweed and Lanolin base and has a Soya milk for added protein to strengthen dry hair. Olive, Jojoba, and Avocado oils condition. Fresh cantaloupe eliminates dirt and keeps hair shiny with fruit enzymes. LUSH Retread looks and feels a lot like yogurt. It has a really cool and fresh scent that is reminiscent of both yogurt and cantaloupe. I only need a small scoop of Retread for my hair; a little goes a long way.  I usually leave it in for a couple minutes before washing it out; though to be honest, not much is 'washed off' because the conditioner has already sunk in. The result is very soft and shiny hair! I do notice a functional difference between LUSH Retread and LUSH American Conditioner; the former does keep a few more frizzies at bay and loosens my curls a bit more.


          Overall, I only have good things to say about this yogurt and melon scented hair conditioner; it's a wonderful replacement for my nearly empty bottle of LUSH American Cream. LUSH Retread ($27.95 for 8.4 oz) is available at LUSH boutiques and LUSH online.

Love, Dovey.

  1. All of your hair posts are reminding me that I need to treat my hair a little better - it's starting to dry out and be poofy. :( I think I need to find one of those oils that you like!

    1. Hi Larie, hair is my weakness so I'm always trying to do something to it. Though, sometimes nothing is the best! Sometimes heavy conditioners can do the poof smoothing trick too :)

    1. Hi RD*L, I agree. After going silicone-free, it's hard to go back. It's nice to feel hair for what it actually is!

  4. I adore Lush! Don't think I've ever bought a product from there that I don't like. In fact, I think my followers might be concerned that I've become an addict!

    Loving your blog,
