What Lush say….
The LUSH website describes the watercress-containing hair treatment called after the Chinese God of Hair H'Suan Wen Hua:
“Want to replenish your roots and strengthen your lengths? This restorative herbal hair and scalp treatment is the answer to your prayers. Work into the scalp and allow fresh bay leaf infusion to stimulate your roots, fresh watercress to soothe the skin and spicy cinnamon leaf to boost circulation to the hair follicles, encouraging healthy hair growth. Stroke through the ends to saturate your locks in fibrous bananas and protein-rich, free range eggs, both of which will strengthen, protect and deeply condition. Moisturising fresh avocado and shine-enhancing balsamic vinegar are a match made in heaven for locks seeking repair, vibrancy and great comb-ability - just don't let the effects go to your head.
