Triple strength conditioner to rebuild wrecked hair - There are far too many ways in which you can ruin your hair: perming, bleaching, blow-drying, colouring, curling and straightening to name but a few. Yet so many of us do it! Is it surprising that so many people have hair which feels like straw? Retread has soya milk with minerals and amino acids to help rebuild your hair, seaweed to soften and oils to increase tensile strength. Retread is so rich that it's too thick to pour and it comes in a pot. Scoop out a handful and plaster it over badly ruined hair. There's a fairy tale about spinning straw to turn it into flat. Retread is you hair's own fairy tale. ... Read more
It is a very good conditioner. It is light and yet conditioning. but to me it smells like hay or cud or something cowish.It smells distinctively barnyard.but I see that many like the smell so maybe it is just me.
Throw out all your other conditioners!
I have dry, fine, difficult hair and have tried (no kidding) just about every product claiming to add volume and body to hair like mine. From specialty stores to prescription items - I've found a few that do work somewhat.I depend on conditioners to be the most important product in my hair regime because the conditioner you use has the greatest impact on how your hair turns out that day....trust me - I know.I've got this hair product thing down to a science.I used the two Lush products this morning: Big Shampoo and Retread.Holy **** - what a difference.I am so happy right now - you should see how good my hair looks today - I used this for the first time this morning and here are some of the key points:
1.You only have to use a very little bit (I have hair past my shoulders and I only used about 2 teaspoons).
2.The product smells like Heaven. It's got that affluent expensive natural smell - not that perfumey dimestore smell.
3.The frangrance lingers on and on - I've had GUYS tell me how good I smell.
4.After using with the other product "Big Shampoo (or Hair)" - my hair was thick, soft, shiny, silky, with lots of movement - no static.
5. This conditioner gives me the perfect moisture balance (for my hair anyway - I have very thin, fine, dry hair).
As far as lush overall:
Let me first state that I am in no way affiliated with Lush - I placed an order for over $100 worth of Lush products and this was one of the products in the order. The only negative thing was the shipping turnaround (little over 3 weeks) but when my Lush items came in - I didn't care. The scent of all the products is gorgeous!!! It's made with all natural products that actually smell awesome and last throughout the day. Not too perfumey at all but definitely recognizable to others. I had guys commenting all day on how good I smell!!!!! The packaging is delightful, the product presentation is adorable, and the quality is better than I've EVER experienced. Better than Benefit, better than Philosophy, etc. I buy and try just about every new product line that comes out - some I like some I don't. I can tell you that this line is my new favorite! I'm going to stock up on everything they have because not only do the products work, they are so pretty to look at that I will use them as decorations in my bathroom!!!
Customer service is extremely responsive and doesn't reply with form letters to your concerns and questions. They said they are working to improve their shipping times and were very accomodating. They also gave me some nice coupons with my order!
10 stars out of 5!
Don't Toss Your Detangler!
I have super long hair that I am getting tired of having to hack off every six weeks to avoid the "that chick's hair looks like hay" rumors. I was looking for something new/unusual to save my lovely locks. I tried Retread and it blew my mind. The first time you use it, the smell may seem weird (I still haven't quite figured it out), but it's not unpleasant. Besides, once your hair is dry, you'll be in such wonderment and shock, you won't care if it smells like asphault. BE WARNED though, you cannot skip your detangler. This stuff isn't slick or greasy, so if your hair tends to tangle at all (and mine does), you'll be sorry if you skip your favorite detangler. I can't say enough about this funky smelling miracle - worth the price!!
Ooh that smell
Even if Retread didn't make my long thick hair soft, manageable, and tangle-free, I'd use it just for the smell.The soy milk leaves your hair with a sublte delicious creamy scent that makes me want to walk around with my nose in my hair all day! My husband loves the smell as well, and has promised to keep me in Retread so he can keep enjoying it!
