Lush American Cream Conditioner
This is probably Lush’s most popular bottled conditioner. When I talked to the Lush lady, she said a lot of people picked this up, with all sorts of different textures and types of hair.
American Cream is a very lightweight cream. It’s supposed to smell like strawberries, honey and other naturally moisturizing ingredients like vanilla. It really didn’t smell like that to me at all, just sort of like a general Lush scent. Like the store. Maybe a little bit more vanilla.
Because of how lightweight it is, it’s really deceptive when you go to use it. If you go from using a standard drugstore conditioner to American Cream, or really any Lush hair product, you’ll be used to an immediately silky feeling or creamy feeling texture in your hair. This won’t really happen with American Cream.
You only need the tiniest amount of product and it will make a difference when you dry your hair. I typically used a good dollop of conditioner but decided to cut back a little bit since I got such a small bottle (the smallest one they have available). While my hair was in the shower and wet, it didn't just automatically silken and feel artificially soft like with regular conditioner, but felt kind of tangly and hard to deal with. After I rinsed it all out and my hair was dry though, it was a totally different story. Not only did my hair feel shinier and stronger after my hair dried, but it didn’t feel as weighed down. I know now that a problem that I generally had with conditioners was the amount I used.
It does soften my "brittle ends" as it says on the bottle, and again after my hair dried, it felt very healthy, strong, and nourished. People noticed how healthy my hair looked too. I also started using my Emtage hair serum at the same time too, which added an extra dose of health back to my hair.
I definitely noticed how great of a difference this product made so I will be purchasing it again, in a bigger size. These are available at Lush and Lush online and retail for $9.95 for 3.3 oz, $19.95 fr 8.4 oz, and $29.95 for 16.9 oz.
