Lush Glory Conditioner is a new, permanent cream conditioner for textured and curly hair that adds hydration and shine. This is formulated with olive oil, coconut cream, and castor oil. Lush Glory Conditioner is actually one of several new hair care products that launched and they seem to be embracing or endorsing the LOC method when using this products.
LOC stands for liquid, oil, cream and is a hair care method that consists of applying a liquid leave-in conditioner to hair, followed by an oil, and a cream. It’s believed the technique of combing water based products with oils and creams will help your hair to help to seal and retain more moisture. Lush recommends using Glory combined with one of their new leave in conditioners.
I welcome Glory’s release with open arms because it feels ages since Lush released a cream conditioner and the ones they do have aren’t really all that hydrating. I love American Cream and some of the other cream conditioners they carry but the lack of silicones makes it feel like I didn’t put conditioner in my hair at all. It’s a hell of a lot less build up when I do use them and my hair behaves so much better but sometimes I need ‘cones to add a little weight and moisture to your hair.
Lush Glory Conditioner is actually one of the most hydrating conditioners I’ve tried from the brand and one that performs the way a normal conditioner should. Granted it’s not SUPER hydrating but compared to say Senegalese or American Cream it’s much, much thicker, creamier, and hydrating!
It’s available in three sizes all the way up to 15.8 oz. I purchased the smaller 3.3 oz jar to try and I can see myself buying a larger in the future. The jar packaging may throw some folks off but I didn’t find it messy scooping some out in the shower at all. I just stood back from the stream of my shower, scoop some out, and smoothed it through my hair.
This has a light fragrance that reminds me of AvoWash but it’s a little less sweet and a bit more greenish smelling if that makes sense. The scent does linger nicely! The texture looks like pureed guacamole. It’s thick but soft and creamy. Best part about it is it washes clean away and doesn’t cause build up at all. It lightly hydrated hair and left it very shiny and soft to the touch. It did great on tangles because as soon as I walked out of the shower I could tell my hair was pretty much tangle-free (I tested it without the combining it through which is normally how I condition).
I think they are marketing this towards more textured hair than my own and I can see why because it’s really gentle and doesn’t cause build up which can result in breakage. However, I do think anyone can get away with using this even though with stick straight hair. It seems quite gentle to me!
All in all, a nice little conditioner from Lush!
