Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze
I read about this treatment in an article about Cindy Crawford’s beauty must haves. Cindy Crawford’s hair is amazing, and she is a beautiful, smart, and an all around inspiring woman. I admire her, and her hair!
Did you know she was valedictorian of her class? It’s true, along with Natlaie Portman, Alicia Keys, and Tiffani Amber Thiessan…who knew that Kelly Kapowski was brains AND beauty On a very small side note, twice now sales associates have stopped me at Tanger Outlets, they freaked out. I was confused, and both (separate but equally as baffling) times the girls thought I was Jessie from Saved by the Bell! (Those were the exact words they used!) I really have no way to explain this, other than my hair? BUT My hair is not nearly as curly as hers, I am not built like her, my hair is lighter also…I have no explanation, except maybe the frizz when I wear it naturally wavy. So…having said all that, summer is coming and there will not be a third Jessie Spanno sighting at Tanger Outlets.
Cindy (Yes, we are on a first name basis since House of Style) also mentioned that she uses Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day (PHD). I use this brand and line) regularly.
Living Proof has all sorts of interesting scientific backing BUT More importantly Hair Goddess Jennifer Anniston stood behind it. (She was an investor and the face of the company until it was acquired by Unilver in 2016. ) I have my fingers crossed that they never change the formulation of Perfect Hair Day Conditioner!
I also use about a quarter size amount of the Living Proof PHD serum (left) after I shower (Wet/damp hair) each night to wake to lustrous hair.
So, back to the LUSH, I was already hooked by A.) the idea that my hair could be like Cindy Crawford’s Hair B.) That Cindy also likes the Living Proof which means we clearly have the same hair and C.) That it is LUSH. For me Lush rivals Aveda in the sensory/scent department but with more playfulness. I could never pick which I prefer.
If Aveda is your gorgeous, worldly Aunt, LUSH is your hip, flawless older sister.
I’ll have what she is having! The volume alone is unsurpassed. By the way she started using it after her daughter (below) recommended it to her. Have you seen Kaia Gerber? LOOK at her hair! She is STUNNING!
I WAS SOLD!
At LUSH (On King St. in Charleston) Fluff Eaze is 26 dollars. You can also buy it here on the LUSH Website. You can also get it on amazon here. I get my Living Proof and Kevin Murphy from Amazon for less than at other retailers, but it is a bit more to get the LUSH from there. LUSH must be doing something smart.
From the LUSHopedia: “Henna is also hair conditioning in its own right and sometimes used for this purpose in hair moisturizers and other products. It coats the hair with a fine film and adds body, shine and brilliant highlights.”
How it works
You are supposed to put it on your hair and let it sit and soak in. The first thing I noticed is the scent. It is absolutely delicious and it lasts. I left it in for about a half hour and then rinsed it out. I did not wash and condition after because I wanted to see how it (alone) left my hair. I used it at night and I could smell it throughout the next day. It smells so GOOD!
It is a bit thinner than I would have expected it. If you were to tilt the tub it would quickly pour out (Unlike a thick cream or conditioning treatment that would stay in the jar upside down).
It is a very light shade of griege. (Gray and beige) and has some little flexs of something or other in it. Not sparkles, but almost little pieces of fine sand. I think it is little bits of dried henna leaves as “Red Henna Infusions” is the ingredient that they list on the website as “Featured.”
I found that I had some drips and splats on the floor after I applied. It was easy to clean up though! I dipped the ends of my hair in the tub so that they might get a little extra fluff eazing.
Seeing Henna in the title did scare me a bit, and made me worry that my bleached hair might be turned orange, but the lady at the store assured me this would not be the case.
Flashbacks of orange henna hair (in High School) and accidental pink hair (while teaching in Charleston, NOT in an awesome JEM sort of way) after using Aveda’s Madder Root conditioner were giving me some hesitation. The Madder Root was an attempt to be Rachel McAdams in The Notebook. I love her hair in that movie, especially with the light blue dress she wears. Ooooh, the Notebook gives me some inspiration for a future post!
In the morning my hair was slightly less frizzy and very soft to the touch. It was wavy in a way that looked like it already had product in it (piece-y but not crunchy). It was more defined as if it had some sort of wax or oil residue left over calming the fuzz. (BUT Not overly left over in a greasy way. Also, I did not follow it with shampoo or conditioner so it may have had more than had I washed and conditioned following the treatment.) My hair did not turn orange (Or change tone or color at all), which allowed me to take a deep breath inhaling (once more!) that gorgeous Jasmine scent.
I used what was left on my hands on Vince’s Hair and he said he could tell the difference the next day. His hair isn’t generally frizzy, but it did have a really nice healthy sheen to it and smelled amazing.
Overall, I think it is a good buy, especially as we approach a Summerville Summer. The smell and the decrease in frizz will have me back in LUSH soon.
I would love to know your thoughts on these products or if you have any recommendations please share!
Love to you and yours,
“Beauty, to me, is really about two things: confidence and passion. It’s the way you carry yourself, trusting that what you have to say is interesting, being engaged, and having that spark of excitement in your eye. That’s beautiful. But, with that said, I love a good spa day and a hair mask as much as the next person.”– Cindy Crawford
