Healthy hair starts at the roots with a healthy scalp. Roots Hair Treatment was invented with those with ‘thine’ (thin and fine) hair in mind and is loaded with ingredients for your scalp’s health.
The first thing you notice with Roots is it’s minty fresh smell. In this product, Lush have used three types of mint to stimulate the hair follicles for growth and disrupt the hair fall cycle, allowing the scalp to retain the hair for much longer. It’s also what gives you the tingling sensation when you’ve applied it.
The best way to apply this product, is like it says on the side of the pot – grab a comb and divide the hair into sections, exposing the roots. Slather the thick treatment directly onto the roots and scalp, especially in areas prone to fallouts and thinning and give yourself a nice head massage for 10-15 minutes. Simply shampoo out and lightly condition if needed.
Although personally I do condition my hair lightly after using Roots, I know a lot of people who choose not to. It’s actually very nourishing anyway due to the Honey and Olive Oil inside it. Both are supremely nourishing ingredients for the hair and help to protect and strengthen.
Lush have also chosen to add Nettle Infusion to balance dry skin conditions, soothing Neroli Oil and antibacterial Grapefruit and Sweet Orange Oils to add shine.
From someone who actually suffers with ‘thine’ hair, I can safely say that Roots is an excellent product. It goes perfectly with New Shampoo Bar because of the similar ingredients and benefits. I use it almost every time I wash my hair and I’ve noticed a considerable difference in the amount my hair falls out since I’ve started using it, I really doubt I’ll ever stop buying it! The 225g pot lasts at least 5 or 6 uses if you’re just applying directly to the roots.
