Hercules Hot Oil Hair Treatment

Despite the pitfalls that I'm constantly struggling with regarding my hair, I never remember to fit in time to really work on improving the condition of my locks. Many of Lush's hair products work wonders on my hair, most noticeably Jasmine And Henna Fluff Ease Hair Treatment, which makes a huge difference to my hair each and every time I use this. After using this hot oil hair treatment, I've convinced myself that this should become a staple part of my weekly routine, as my hair has never felt so amazing.

Ironically, Lush introduce Hercules Hot Oil Hair Treatment by saying that 'if there's a prize for doing damage, I guess you've already won that!' and it is so true. My hair is constantly crying out for attention and yet on a daily basis I tend to ignore its plight in favour of doing something else, which I consider to be more productive. I think I'd probably be charged for full blown neglect regarding my hair, as opposed to simply winning a prize!

After using this only a single time, this Liverpool exclusive had wonders for my hair, and it's all thanks to the incredible ingredients that have gone into creating it. Featuring hydrolysed wheat gluten, this beautiful treatment features a very high dosage of protein, which helps to both repair and strengthen your locks and add a little extra volume for those of us with thinner, finer hair. 

As my hair began to dry, it was noticeable how much thicker it looked and felt, and also how much softer and more manageable it was as well. I couldn't believe that I was able to run my hands through my hair without needing to brush it first, and given how frizzy and brittle it had looked and felt a mere thirty minutes beforehand showcased to me exactly how powerful this treatment is.

A large dosage of argan oil here not only helps to create the popular Rose Jam scent that consumers love very much, but the oil also helps to soften your hair even more and leave it looking more moisturised and healthy. Finally, the inclusion of the olive oil helps to increase the tensile strength of the hair, while the lemon oil adds a healthy shine to finish it off.

To use, you simply have to fill a mug with boiling water, leaving a small space at the top. Add in your block of treatment and continue stirring until all of the product has fully melted. By this stage you'll have a thick, foamy gel that needs to be left to cool for about 10-15 minutes before it can be applied to your hair. 

Once it's ready, massage across your whole scalp and down the lengths of all of your hair and then leave in for a good 20-30 minutes. My hair is down past my shoulders and I found that I only needed to use half of the product with each treatment. As I was planning to use both halves within the space of a week, I chose to melt the whole block down in one go. However, if you want to prolong using all of this at once, I suggest you cut off half of the block and only melt half at a time.

Either way, the left over treatment can be stored in the fridge to limit the number of bacteria that could grow in between uses. And while you're waiting for Hercules to work its magic on your locks, you may even want to wrap a plastic bag around your head to retain the heat and possibly make it a little more effective. Once the time is up, simply rinse the treatment away under the shower head and then shampoo your hair as normal before towel drying your rejuvenated locks and seeing how amazing they look and feel.

Not only was my hair completely transformed after using this, but the wonderful sweet, rose scent lingered on my hair for a good many hours afterwards as well. My hair looked and felt more manageable; felt super soft and with a beautiful shine; and I was able to wear it down with little intervention for the few days following the treatment. 

Hercules Hot Oil Hair Treatment is a product that I would happily travel all the way up to Liverpool just to stock up on, and I can only hope that Lush choose to bring it back again online very soon. This is now going to become part of my weekly routine in the hope that my hair will begin to show signs of life once again.
