Lush Cosmetic's Newest Haircare Line Up

Lush has always had a good solid haircare line! You've heard me babble some about the shampoo bars already but Lush also carries other shampoos and conditioners that I swear by as well!

I was happy to hear that Lush will be expanding it's haircare line and introducing not only new haircare but some styling items as well! This is a big step for Lush as they have had no prior styling products to boast of prior to these! I'm very curious how they will turn out!

First up is Curly Wurly! Hmmm good news for the Muse as her hair is wavy and full of curls!

Lush's description of Curly Wurly Shampoo:

This thick and rich marvel is so unlike any other shampoo that your hair will think it’s discovered a parallel universe, one where curls soften, relax and shine on command. Amazingly enough, we make it all happen without preservatives! Coconut butter, cocoa butter, avocado butter and jojoba oil control curls, weigh the hair down and smooth hair follicles. Shredded coconut aids in application and synthetic polymers are replaced by free-range eggs while lemons and papaya add extra cleansing and shine. Available early October.

Next up a new conditioner of sorts entitled Jasmine & Henna Fluff Eaze! The name alone sold it for the Muse. Anything that contains the word "fluff" in it makes me want it all the more!

Lush description for this new Fluffy product:

Jasmine & Henna Fluff Eaze makes really fluffy hair smooth and encourages normal hair to behave. Henna infusion adds loads of shine and moisture, but it won’t change your color (even if it’s color-treated). Brazil nut oil and olive oil add even more shine, calm fluffiness and give control to the ends without taking all the life out of it. You’ll find this hair treatment detangles, stops static and helps prevent your hair from tying itself in knots. What’s more, the effects last for weeks! Best of all, the lovely scent of jasmine wafts around you like moonlit evenings in a Moroccan garden. Available early October.

Now these have the Muse intrigued! All natural hair gels!

The Big Tease

The Big Tease can stand your hair straight up without feeling brittle -- all with a texture a bit like glue (but in a good way). It’s loaded with natural, good-for-your-hair ingredients like glycerin for softer texture and cupuaçu butter (pronounced: coo-poo-a-soo) from the Amazon rainforest. This acts a bit like lanolin, which means excellent conditioning that’s all vegan! You’ll be delighted when you sniff this gel too. It has the same refreshing (and very popular) fragrance as The Olive Branch shower gel, with orange flower, lemon and bergamot. Tease it high! Available early October

Goth Juice

Fans of The Mighty Boosh (a British cult comedy TV show) will be aware that real Goth Juice is made with the tears of Robert Smith. (That’s why it’s purple.) If you have no idea what we’re talking about, that’s cool, just take it from us that our Goth Juice is a medium-strength gel to hold and style your hair without drying it out. Glycerin, hemp and flaxseed oils nurture, strengthen and in general, take good care of your hair -- even when they join forces to double the size of your head. It has a beautiful, dark green-forest scent of oakmoss and olibanum. Available early October.

Holy cow the Muse definately wants this! She loves the Mighty Boosh and dare ye all who question her about it and know not of it's origins! Off with your bloody heads for not being exposed to bloody brilliant britcom! Sadly this is also an earthy blend which means maybe the name and concept sounds brilliant but the general idea of oakmoss and other green bits aren't what the Muse prefers her hair to smell like! Le sigh! How very depressing that Goth Juice doesn't smell fruity!

And lastly in the hair management department....

King of Mods

This soft-hold gel takes soft, fluffy hair, controls it and makes it look cool. It shines hair, moisturizes it and holds it softly in place no matter the adventure. Like Mods themselves, it’s controlled but not hard. It’s also good for your scalp with eight percent almond oil and camellia oil (the one that Sumo wrestlers use to keep their long, black hair shiny). King of the Mods is perfumed with grapefruit and lime essential oils to wake you up in the morning and revive you for an after-work party (think Swinging London of the ‘60s). Party on! Available early October.

Overall looks like a nice little line up of additions to Lush's already supremely awesome haircare line! I want to try the gels for sure and Curly Wurly is definately going to end up in my cart!

Reviews to come when I buy some of these bits and pieces!
