After trying out some LUSH body care products and fragrances, I decided to try out something for my hair as well. I've heard a lot of good things about LUSH Retread Conditioner which was the main reason I wanted to try it out myself.
''Retread is our super-smoothing conditioning cream that gives sad hair its shine and bounce back. Use it when your hair is feeling absolutely wrecked. This rich conditioner makes your hair look better, but more importantly, it moisturizes and feeds your hair the nutrients it needs. We use a blend of softening and hydrating ingredients, including seaweed, lanolin, fresh canteloupe and protein-rich yoghurt and soya milk to strengthen locks. Then we blend in olive, jojoba and avocado oils to give a truly deep condition. Together all these ingredients add up to a nutritious heavy weight conditioner. Put a plentiful helping on your hair and let it go to work.'' (Lush USA)

Po tem, ko sem preizkusila nekaj Lushevih izdelkov za nego telesa in njihovih parfumov, sem se odločila, da dam priložnost še kakemu izdelku za lase. Odločila sem se za regenerator Retread, saj sem o njem slišala že veliko dobrega.
''Puding v lončku, ki spravi pokonci uničene in poškodovane lase. Vsebuje sojino mleko in jogurt, ki navlažita še najbolj suhe lase, olja avokada, oliv in jojobe, ki dajejo elastičnost, morske alge agar-agar, da se lasje laže razčešejo, in svežo melono kot odličen vir hrane za sestradane, suhe lasem. Sončni vonj pa dolgujemo čistim eteričnim oljem nerolija, pomarančnih cvetov, vijolice. Najboljše, kar lahko ponudimo za popolno preobrazbo vaših las.'' (Lush SI)
My hair is curly and I dye it on a regular basis which basically means it can never get too much hydration and nourishment. Retread is supposed to be perfect for just that. It's Lush's most heavy duty conditioner, but does it work like one too? Well, I can't say it's worked well enough for me. It does make my hair soft and detangles it, but not nearly as well as my cheap Balea conditioner (which doesn't contain any silicones either!). When there's a much cheaper product which gets the job done so much better, there's an obvious winner. Retread works well, but in my eyes, it's just a mediocre conditioner. It has a weird scent which I don't like very much in the bottle, but love it after my hair dries when it's subtle and soft.
Moji lasje so naravno skodrani, redno pa jim privoščim tudi barvanje, kar pomeni, da so lasje večino časa potrebni vlage in hranljivih snovi. Regenerator Retread naj bi bil Lushev najbolj heavy-duty tretma za lase, pa si resnično zasluži takšno ime? Zame je njegov učinek dober - lase naredi mehke in jih lepo razvozlja - čeprav se ne more niti primerjati z mojim najljubšim Balea regeneratorjem, ki je povrhu vsega še veliko cenejši. Zmagovalec je torej očiten. Retread dobro deluje, a je v mojih očeh le povprečen balzam za lase. Omenim naj še vonj, ki je zanimiv in ne preveč všečen, a mi na laseh (ko so suhi) precej lepo diši.
You can buy Retread Conditioner in Lush stores from ~ $29.95/ £10.25/ €14.95. Prices vary from country to country.
