A hair mask to finally rival 3 minute miracle? Lush H'suan Wen Hua
I have always been a devoted fan of Aussies 3 minute miracle and I have gone through so many bottles of the stuff you would not believe, that said I have also been hunting like a woman possessed for an alternative as I would love to have a bit of variation on my hair routine. I find that after a while, I get stuck in a rut and then it seems that  even the conditioning mask you swear by normally just isn't doing the trick.

am I the only one who goes through this dilemma?
As a result of this I have tried every conditioner/mask you can think of and I have found some impressive concoctions but none seem to come close that is the genius of Aussies 3 minute miracle.

I received Lush H'suan Wen Hua (don't even bother asking for a translation of that... that NAME stresses me out) I was not completely alien to it, I had heard some rave reviews and some bog standard views and at £9.95 I wasn't running to town to get it but was pleasantly surprised to receive it on my birthday.

The first thing any sane person does when receiving a treasure from

Lush is to have a good whiff and H'Suan Wen Hua is not for the faint hearted. I would say it smells like some sort of strong Moroccan tagine and I wasn't instantly sold and although at first I felt this was a marmite aroma (in the love/hate sense) I later discovered it was a grower and now I crave to have this lingering in my hair.

H'Suan Wen Hua consistency is thick and creamy and if you have tried Lush body creams it is very similar - particularly to dream cream. The application is a little different to my usual hair mask routine as this works best applied to dry hair and left to soak prior to washing and I have noticed somewhat of a trend currently with backward washing and to be honest as a oily scalped woman I really have been asking myself why I haven't always been doing it.
I always find with products like H'Suan Wen Hua that the longer you leave them to penetrate the hair the better so I leave this for a good 10-20 minutes but could even be left on overnight. I then rinse with a good gentle shampoo and then I've been loving finishing this off with Macadamia flawless which is a cleansing conditioner in a mousse consistency and its lightweight formula leaves my hair squeaky clean but without being unmanageable.

When I first blow dried my hair after using this I honestly could not believe my eyes! my hair was an absolute dream to style and the finished look resulted in a bouncy sleek shine which easily looked salon fresh. In all of my 27 years I have never achieved salon effects on my own hair myself, let alone with such ease.

I try not to over use this leaving it to just 1-2 times a fortnight as the only downside with this is that with comes moisture, comes oily roots! it is not noticeable until the second or third day but I did feel that I needed to wash my hair sooner than usual but if you aren't a grease ball like me I'm sure you will be fine!

I wont be going cold turkey from Aussies 3 minute miracle completely and I think both of these conditioners/masks have a different purpose personally but I am so thrilled to have found another outstanding mask and this will now always be a welcome addition to my stash.

What is your favourite hair mask/conditioner? have you tried this offering from Lush? what did you think of the aromatic smell?
