I love soft hair! But being that I blow dry, straighten and chemically treat my hair regularly, it doesn't always feel the healthiest. So, about once a month I like to treat my hair to a good ol' mask. I've tried a ton, both expensive and inexpensive. My most recent fav is Loreal Re-Nutrition Deep Moisture Hair Mask. At around $8 for 300ml, it'll last you a while. Loreal suggests using the mask once a week, but I find it to be too rich, so I do it about once a month.
The smell is D-vine! It smells like the beach, slightly coconutty/pinappley. SUPER YUM! I start out doing a deep cleanse shampoo (a small amount of your regular shampoo mixed with a good handful of Baking Soda. Mix together and massage into your wet hair, letting it sit for about a minute). Once I've rinsed that out, I apply a two finger scoop of the mask and apply it focusing on the ends. Leave that in for 1-2 minutes and whala... Healthy, moisturized soft hair. For cheap.
Here's what Loreal has to say about it:
Royal Jelly is an extract derived from nature and has been widely recognised as a ‘cure-all’ for many centuries. Ancient civilisations such as the Egyptians and Romans recognised the healing benefits of bee by-products.
Royal Jelly, nature’s superfood concentrate for the queen bee, conditions hair with the most essential nutrients leaving hair soft with high-gloss finish. It contains more than 10 essential nutrients, including : glycose, proteins, lipids, vitmamin-B, oligo-elements, animo acids, minerals, etc.
I highly recommend picking one up. If you've tried it already, What do YOU think about it?
