Lush H’suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment | Review, Photos

Lush H'Suan Wen Hua

Hey, everyone! A few days back I shared my first LUSH haul with you, today I am sharing my pre-haul first product from Lush and that is H'Suan Wen Hua. I am not too sure how to pronounce it but it is a Chinese phrase/name for the God of hair.

My hair has been quite frizzy lately and I am a very lazy person when it comes to oiling so I needed a product that would take less time and will actually help in taming my hair. Let's see how this hair mask faired out.

Product Claims:

Super nutrition for strung out tresses

This is our intensely moisturizing treatment for truly unruly hair. You don't have to know how to pronounce it, just massage it into scalp and mane and let it go to work for 20-30 minutes before shampooing and conditioning. It's our version of a fresh face mask for the hair, with softening and moisturizing mashed bananas, avocados and olive oil, shine-enhancing balsamic vinegar and fresh eggs. Treat dull, damaged and dry hair right; feed it H'suan Wen Hua and bring it back to life.


Apply generously to dry hair, leave on for 20 to 30 minutes, and then shampoo out. Use about a quarter of a pot for short hair, or about half a pot for longer hair. Those with very long hair should use the whole pot. (Yes, it is a lot, but the effects are long lasting and well worth the investment.) H'Suan Wen Hua will remain fresh for up to three months. Always check the expiration date on your product.

My Experience

As I told earlier my hair has been very frizzy, dull and unhealthy lately. I tried oiling them a couple of times and then gave up as I realized I am too lazy for that. During these failed oiling attempts I came across Lush H'suan Wen Hua and decided to give it a try. It is a rich smelling hair treatment that smells very strongly of bananas and cinnamon. If you are a fan of banana-smelling things you'd love it else you'd hate it; it smells that strong. It has a smoothie-like texture which is slightly runny. It comes in a regular black tub packaging with a screw cap.

It is advised to use up a 225 gm tub in four times for short hair. The first time I used it I left it on for the said 20-30 minutes and then washed my hair. I used it on both my scalp as well as along the hair strands. While washing only I could feel my hair being soft. After letting my hair air dry for about 30 minutes I then blow dried them and I  loved the way my hair felt. They were soft, felt fresh and alive. They also had a slight bit of shine though the product doesn't claim for shine. They were quite detangled as well. I skip conditioner whenever I treat my hair with this as this is very hydrating and rich for my hair and if I use conditioner it weighs down my hair. I feel it leaves a slight residue behind as my hair need washing the third day when I use this (usually I wash my hair fourth day). I use it about once a week or once in two weeks depending on how my hair feel.

It is an expensive product considering that you have to finish it up in four uses for best results but I always customize the quantity as per my liking. After the first time, I started keeping it on for an hour or so. So far, I have been loving it and how my hair feels after using it.

Although I love it but the strong smell can be a dislike for some

Bit pricey

Quantity per use is bit large so it finishes up quick

Leaves slight residue behind

Contains sulfate, parabens, and alcohol; although as far as it works well for my hair I don't mind these ingredients.

Small shelf life

OVERALL, it is one of my current favorite hair care products despite a few dislikes. I love the way it makes my hair feel.
