Weekday beauty rituals are often quite time restricted, what with school runs, college or working to be getting to. That’s why I like to make some quality time during my weekend to indulge in a more time consuming pamper session.
This weekend I felt my hair was in desperate need of a deep nourishing treatment. What it really could do with is a cut to remove the dry ends, but alas that will have to wait until payday.
So instead I decided to treat my hair to an intensive mask, in the hope that it will at least temporarily cheer my hair up.
My product of choice was Palmers coconut oil deep conditioning protein pack, priced £1.99 from Superdrug.
As the name suggests the hair mask contains coconut milk as well as Keratin and silk proteins. It is also free from Parabens and Sulphates, which in my eyes is always a bonus.
This is a very reasonable sized pack, If you had shorter length hair you could probably get two treatments out of one sachet. I have very long hair so used the whole sachet, but it coated all of my hair nice and thickly. I left the mask on for the full suggested 15 minutes before rinsing.
So, what did I think?
First up, it smells great, there is a subtle coconut scent that lingers into the next day.
If you are used to using artificial silicone based hair masks, that coat the hair resulting in that artificial super soft feeling, you might be left a bit disappointed by this particular hair mask.
As this does not contain such ingredients, what you get is hair that combs out easily, and once dry feels strong and naturally smooth. The ends look and feel visibly less dry. This is exactly what I’m after from a treatment as my prime concern is hair health.
I also think that this is a very reasonable price point, if you after a budget beauty treat then this is worth a look. So from me it gets a thumbs up, I will most definitely be picking up another treatment in the near future.
There is also a cleansing conditioner that is available as part of this range, I am desperate to get my hands on that. So far though I have only found that available for sale online and don’t want to be bothering with an online order at present. I might cave in the not to distant future though, we shall see.
What sort of hair mask do you prefer? I’d love to hear any suggestions of hair treatments or other products from this range you have tried and loved.
