Also, L’occitane is one of my favorite brands and their products almost never disappointed me. This hair mask I their first product I’m not so thrilled about, but that could also be because my criteria for hair products are really high. Continue reading and find out what I liked, and what I didn’t like so much with this hair mask.
First, some of the technical data. This mask comes in a small jar in the amount of 250 ml with the expiry date of 12 months. Its price is 219.30 Croatian Kuna.
What does the manufacturer say about this product?
Rich, creamy mask with protective herbal complex of 5 essential oils (geranium, palmarosa, bergamot, rosemary, cedar) and with the extract of grape seed, regenerates the hair, gives it back its shine and prevents the color from washing out to quickly. Its formula with silky, easy soluble texture, intensively cares for the hair and makes it softer, makes the combing easier and keeps the endurance of the color longer lasting. The hair is soft, shiny and lithe, and the color is kept longer lasting. The protective UV factor helps to protect the color from the oxidation effect of the sun rays.
What is my opinion on this product?
So, my hair is long and thick and its tangle prone and lately is a little bit lifeless and without shine what is actually really typical for my hair during the summer. So what I was looking for with this hair mask was regeneration and shine restore exactly because its what it was intended to do. You apply the mask after the shampooing and hair balm on the towel dried hair and you keep it on your hair for 2 or 3 minutes. I regularly keep all hair masks of 10 minutes more-less because then I get the best results. First two times I used this hair mask, I had the feeling I didn’t rinse it out good. My hair was really like sticking together close to the roots, although I didn’t apply it even close to my scalp. So I was pretty disappointed with the mask. After this happened, I only applied it very carefully only on my hair ends so this didn’t happen again. This hair mask has a cream texture and when you apply it, it seems like it soaks in really well and after you rinse it out and dry your hair, the hair is soft and it’s easy to comb trough. I spent more than a half of this mask, but honestly I didn’t get some greater results. I didn’t notice my hair got shinier or that it looks any healthier. For the price I paid, I expected so much more. What I really liked about this mask is the refreshing fragrance that I could still smell in my hair even after days of using it and that makes me even sadder because this mask didn’t work well with my hair.
I plan to spend the mask to the end, well not at the moment because I0m trying out some other products, but I don’t plan to make another purchase of this product. I had the opportunity to use hair products of the same brand and they were really great and it’s really bad that this wasn’t the case with this mask.
