Product Review: American Cream Conditioner by Lush

Yes, I know. I have written about my love for all things Lush before, haven't I? I can't help it. Their products are almost completely across the board fantastic, and they are certainly socially conscious, making sure to use eco-friendly ingredients, keep their products mostly vegetarian, and use free trade practices almost exclusively. I have not run into many items from Lush that I wouldn't purchase again, and I love to feature such a fantastic company.

American Cream Conditioner by LUSHis described as a sweet honey milkshake for the hair. Like all Lush products, it smells heavenly, and you'll find yourself catching a whiff of it every now and again, which is a good thing. Praised for it's softening abilities, it claims to help even frizzy hair calm itself.

If I was a person who wanted to use only natural products, American Cream Conditioner would be my conditioner of choice. I'd buy it by the gallon and use it every day. However, because my hair is so frizzy and wild, I prefer modern silicones in my hair products - as many as I can get. Because American Cream Conditioner is silicone free, I don't find it works quite as well as my other conditioners, although I can appreciate that it is due to it's mostly natural formulation. So for the type of product it is, it's excellent.

And, just for fun, here are a few of my favorite Lush products. Have you tried Lush? What do you think?

I have yet to try a Lush product (I am so deprived), and this seems like a great conditioner to try.

I am curious what everyone else likes and would recommend as well.
