Lush Zeste Hair Gelly.

Lush released 6 new products this summer--5 have alreadybeen reviewed on our website and this is the mysterious 6th product. Lush has come out with a great new hair gelly. It has a very nice citrus scent and has a medium to strong hold. It was developed with inspiration from the 70’s hairstyles and punks. The formula is very simple. Like most LUSH products, the product list is fairly simple, which is always nice.

My Thoughts

This hair gelly is like no other out there. After extensive testing I have found that this gelly will hold hair in its place for a solid 19 hour work day (no joke, I actually tested this). Seriously amazing! It has a great orange scent--it is actually made with OJ. It does not require much product to really hold all day. I primarily tested it with dry hair rather than damp hair as I found it worked best.

To get the right amount of product out onto my hands, I opened the container and flipped the tub upside down, shaking it two times with my hand over the opening. Then I flipped the tub upright and I found this left enough product on my hands to work into my hair with day-long hold. If you use too much it will leave your hair looking wet and hair will feel slightly stiff to the touch. I personally experienced no flakiness/crunchiness with this product at all even after it dried. I found I was able to touch my hair throughout the day without having to fix what I had styled in the morning. Overall, I would say this is the best hair gel I have ever used hands-down. I would and will recommend this to everyone and their brother and I will get more when it's gone.

On a scale of 1-5 (1 being poor performance, 5 being great). 0 means it did not do this at all.


  1. Did you find it made your hair greasy at all? I have thin hair shoulder length and so many gels make my hair greasy.

  2. i'm not a huge fan of hair gels so i think i'll pass on this lush product but i'll stock up on some of my other favs on my next visit to lush

    1. You should I really do love it. It was not greasy as long as I did not over apply, and it smells awesome all day.
