LUSH Shine So Bright review


         Today was a good day: the sun was shining bright and not a stray hair was in sight! A good hair day is always a good day. I'm a LUSH haircare aficionada, as you may know. LUSH shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks are a regular part of my routine. Recently, I had the chance to try LUSH Shine So Bright, the latest haircare product to hit LUSH shelves and am excited to share my review with you today!

          LUSH Shine So Bright is a balm-style split end treatment to improve hair strength and mend split ends. It has a wonderful ingredient list (see below) that contains nourishing coconut oil and shea butter, scented essential oils, and free range eggs that provide a protective protein coat. It does not have the silicone fillers that are so often slipped into other hair oils and treatments. LUSH Shine So Bright is packaged in a compact 0.3 oz. tin and has a solid consistency. The best way to use Shine So Bright is to melt the surface with a finger for a few seconds. After that, it's easy to work through hair or split ends. While a solid formula does require slightly more patience than a liquid product, it's worth the wait. This way, only a small amount of product is picked up and it won't weight down hair or make it greasy. Plus, the amount inside the tin will last quite a long time. Although LUSH Shine So Bright is listed as a split end treatment, it works well to condition and add shine to regular hair, as well as to tame flyaways. A pretty neroli, grapefruit, and rosewood scent is imparted to locks upon use.


          LUSH Shine So Bright is like a pocketful of sunshine for hair.  This portable balm adds a conditioned shine and pretty fragrance to split ends, as well as regular locks. It's great for my long fine hair since it tames frizz without adding too much weight. From now on, I'll be keeping LUSH Shine So Bright stashed in my purse so that I can give my hair some TLC on the fly! Thanks for reading! Have you seen LUSH Shine So Bright in stores? Have you tried LUSH haircare? What do you use to tame frizzies or split ends?

Love, Dovey.

    1. Hi Mallard Duck, I really like that too! Silicones do feel nice, but they build up over time and make my hair feel heavy! I'm glad you liked the sun :)

  5. Ooooh, I really like the portability that this offers. I will have to stop by the next time I'm at the mall to take a look at this. By late in the day, especially on humid days, my locks can use a bit of a boost in the anti-frizz dept! The scent of grapefruit & rosewood is an added bonus!

    1. Hi Kristi, I think that's the best part too. Most of my hair products are in larger tubs or sprays. I'd love to hear what you think!
