Review: Lush H'Suan Wen Hua

Lush H'Suan Wen Hua: I can't pronounce it, but I like it! This strengthening, ultra-nourishing hair mask is great for anyone with dry, damaged or brittle hair. H'Suan Wen Hua is a hair treatment mask that uses protein-rich organic eggs to condition and protect hair; bay leaf infusion to stimulate and tone the scalp; bananas and extra virgin olive oil to moisturize and rosemary oil to add shine.

One of the first things I noticed about this product is it smells absolutely amazing! I'd read some reviews that mentioned the smell being funky, so I was prepared for the worst, but honestly I really loved the way it smelt! It reminds me of bananas and cinnamon. If you like the scent of Lush's Sympathy For The Skin (another favorite of mine), I think you'll enjoy this as well!

So anways, back to what the mask does! But first, a bit of background on my hair: My hair is neither fine nor thick. It's naturally straight and goes a bit past my shoulders. I'm a bleach blonde, so my hair can always use some extra lovin' to keep it feeling strong and healthy, especially after I've just had a color touch-up. However, I hate anything that makes my hair feel greasy or sticky. If I'm using a conditioning product, I don't want it to be anything that weighs my hair down or leaves any type of residue behind. (I rarely use product in my hair. It's a texture thing.)

I was a little worried H'Suan Wen Hua would weigh down my hair and make it look limp--or worse, greasy--but I was pleasantly surprised and very pleased with the results! I started with by working the product through my dry hair, applying it all over. I didn't use a ton of product, just enough that my hair felt damp, but not wet. (A single pot of H'Suan Wen Hua would yield about seven or eight all-over treatments with my hair, although of course your mileage may vary depending on your hair's length and texture. You could also extend the life of your pot by just using H'Suan Wen Hua as a spot treatment on problem areas.) Then you're supposed to let it sit for at least 20 minutes. Afterwards, rinse it out, then follow with shampoo and whatever your regular hair routine is.

As soon as I rinsed it out, I could tell right away that my hair felt amazing! It was so smooth, silky and soft! Seriously, my hair has never felt this soft before, to the point that I was touching it throughout the day like a creeper because I couldn't believe how perfect it felt. I could feel it was more conditioned than usual (if that makes sense), but it wasn't heavy or greasy at all. While blowdrying, my brush slid through effortlessly and my hair looked so smooth and tamed that I would have sworn I flat ironed it if I didn't know better!

The effect lasts 2-3 days, probably longer if you don't shampoo your hair. I shampoo'd after two days and still noticed smoother, sleeker texture on the third day, then it kinda gradually dwindled off from there on out. My hair also smelled crazy good for several days. I would catch little whiffs of cinnamon here and there and I loved that!

So to sum it all up, H'Suan Wen Hua is a great multi-tasking hair mask that conditions, strengthens, smooths, softens and adds shine. I love that you get the good stuff, without any of the grease. My hair has never felt or looked as healthy as when I use this mask! Whether you want a mask to help with the regular upkeep of your hair or you're in need of a total re-set button for your locks, this stuff should do the trick!


  1. I've never used any Lush products apart from the very famous Snow Fairy! :-)

    1. Snow Fairy is wonderful! Lush has so many awesome products. I got hooked on them after seeing so many rave reviews on nail blogs for Lemony Flutter.

  2. Oh my! This sounds amazing! Definitely need to make note of this :D
