Want great smelling hair? Me too! I only wash my hair twice a week, so in between washes I often feel a little self conscious about my hair not smelling its best. Generally, I'll use a coconut scented dry shampoo but I don't like using it too often because it just builds up on my hair. When I read reviews that a Lush hair product would keep my hair smelling... well, lush, I was all over it.
This is the Jasmin and Henna Fluff-Eaze. It is a deep conditioning hair moisturiser that smells of jasmin. In my honest opinion, I don't think it smells as good as most people make it out to be. To me it smells of... floral powder. I'm not quite sure how to explain it. Kinda like how an old granny would smell. Not bad, but not very modern. The smell actually put me off when I had a sniff at a Lush store, and I didn't buy it until a week later when I decided to just try it anyway.
I wasn't at all interested about the "de fluff" power that this product claimed to have. Honestly, I just wanted my hair to smell nice. But wow, the Fluff-Eaze actually works! I follow the directions to a T (but I don't use half a pot as suggested, I use about 1/5 of a pot). I apply it to my dry hair, wrap it up in a bun and put a shower cap or plastic bag over it and let it sit for 20-45 minutes (usually the latter). After washing it out, I do notice that my hair is a lot softer, smoother and shinier. And the scent is quite nice! It lasts until you next wash your hair, although once I washed my hair and noticed that it still had a slight scent to it! It definitely lingers and the smell is quite strong so be aware of that if you don't want your perfume to clash.
This is not a cheap product. A 220g pot costs $25.95 AUD and if you use it how they recommend you use it (half a pot each use) then it's very expensive! I don't follow the website or sale person's advice, though. I use only 1/5 of a pot each time on my extremely long hair, so someone with shorter hair could probably get away with even less. The price is kind of justified when you use the product sparingly. I only use it once a week as well, so I'll get a good month and a bit out of it.

|This is how much is gone after two uses. It can get a little messy if you scoop it out with your fingers, so a better option is to pour it into your hand from the pot.|
I do like how this hair conditioner leaves my hair so smooth and silky, as well as smelling quite lovely until I next wash it. However, I wish the scent was a bit more musky and less floral. But like I said earlier, it's not a bad scent at all. When I style my hair or flip my hair around I can catch whiffs of the smell, which I love. In fact, I used it today and I'm now laying in bed writing this post and it's all I can smell. I like that it's strong and lingers, but for those who aren't into floral scents or strong, long lasting scents, this may not be for you. Great for creating smoother locks though, so if anything, try it for that!
The Jasmin and Henna Fluff-Eaze is available at the online Lush store or in Lush stores throughout Australia and worldwide. I no longer feel self conscious in between washes, because my hair always smells nice now. This will become a regular product in my bathroom cabinet!
