If you're like me and you're always looking for ways to improve your beard, its softness and its quality, you'll most likely love this product. Another Lush one, but a bloody good one at that! Lush have a huge selection of hair care, ranging from shampoos, conditioners, styling creams and now, moustache wax, but for me their ultimate hair care product is Hair Doctor.
I've spoke about Hair Doctor before and I can't stress just how much I love the stuff. Coming in pots of 95g, it is packed full of goodness that does your hair wonders...beard including!
Packed full of seaweed and Fuller's earth, a lovely cleansing ingredient, Hair Doctor softens the hair, restores it to full health and leaves it feeling rich and tingly. Suggested instructions say to leave it on the hair for 20 minutes before rinsing it off. I usually leave it for about 25-30, but that's just me and that's for my beard as well as my scalp.
In the time it's on the hair, the lovely and rich Irish moss powder, peppermint and seaweed will work into the hair strands, nourishing and softening them as it does so. For my scalp, i'll rinse it off and then go in with Big shampoo, but for my beard i'll rinse it off and just leave it at that, skipping the shampoo step. Others do it differently, but for me, leaving it at that does exactly what I want. It's trial and error and you should do what you feel is best.
Other ingredients are as follows: Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Almond Oil, Red Henna, Chamomile Blue Oil, Soya Lecithin, Rosemary Absolute and Glycerine.
As you can see, i've also got on a coat of Mask of Magnaminty (self preserving) in the images, which i've spoke about here, this is an extra step that can be added if you wish. It contains lots of honey which will also help soften the hair. You may also notice that I go down the neck with both products, this is purely my own decision.
I've been using Hair Doctor for about three years now and I've never been let down by it. My hair and beard are always left feeling soft, nourished and looking healthy. It's definitely a must have for those who strive for beard perfection.
To store your Hair Doctor, you should keep it sealed in a refrigerator until the date stated on the tub, but it's usually around 3 weeks.
