“ Brand: Boots / Type: Hair Mask / What it does: Smoothes, „
I like to use a hair mask on my hair around twice a week to just give it a deep condition, I am not loyal to any brand and just tend to buy whichever is on special offer at the time or one I haven't bought before. This one is a mask I thought I would give a go when I spotted it on the shelf. I also bought it because I love coconut products.
It comes in a large tub and the name very clearly on the front and so can easily be spotted on a shelf. The mask is a white in colour and a kind of creamy consistency. It is fairly rich and it isn't a runny consistency Is soft and has a really nice coconut fragrance to it. It is a sweet smelling scent and quite pleasant. It is a fairly strong scent but not too overpowering. I can't really smell the almond scent and can only detect the coconut. But I do love the smell of the coconut aroma when I remove the lid and then begin to use the product.
It is really easy to use by simply washing the hair and towel drying it and then scoop a little from the tub using your fingertips and applying it to the hair. Then to leave it on the hair for 5 minutes or so. I usually like to leave it for the full 5 minutes so that it has time to work its magic. I find this length of time works well and I usually use the mask when I have a lot of time and not in a hurry. It feels soft on the hair while applying it.
It is very easy to rinse from the hair and just a slightly little longer than rinsing a conditioner. Once rinsed and towel dried I find I can easily brush my hair and it doesn't feel tangled. The brush simply glides through my hair without it tugging and damaging my hair. I can feel how soft my hair is when I begin to brush it.
Once blow dried, my hair feels really soft and it has a nice glossy appearance. It looks really shiny and smooth looking. My hair is manageable and it flows really well when I move my head. I like the feel of my hair when I touch it and when I place the sides of my hair behind my ears. My hair doesn't feel lank or weighted down or dry using this hair mask. I can place my velco rollers into my hair easily and take them out without them tangling around my hair and damaging it. I could tell they wouldn't tangle in my hair before I used the rollers because my hair was really soft.
I have long hair and it is thick and I find this one suitable for long hair and I also colour my hair, it leaves coloured hair looking glossy and without it looking a dull appearance.
It contains extracts of coconut and almond and I think these are very nice ingredients in this hair mask and ones which help soften the hair and leave it well moisturised without the hair feeling too heavy.
I can smell the coconut fragrance on my hair the day I have used it and the smell does linger most of the day. If you are not too keen but still buy coconut based products I think this one would be suitable too because the smell isn't too overpowering and maybe you would still like the smell of it on your hair.
I really like this hair mask and it only costs £1.99 for a 350ml tub, I think it is an extremely good price for this amount in the tub and is well worth the money. Is good value and it is very good quality too. Is cheap and affordable for any budget in my opinion.
I was pleasantly surprised how nice this masked worked to nourish my hair and I am really pleased I gave it a go. Meets all my expectations from a shops own brand. I will definitely buy it again in the future.
I highly recommend this hair mask if you love the smell of coconut, if you don't like the smell of coconuts this one may not be suitable because the smell is apparent.
I give this one 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I like to give my hair a bit of a treat now and again by using an intensive conditioner. I was getting fed up paying over the odds for some of the more expensive conditioners and decided to try one of the Boots own brand range of intensive conditioners.
I purchased this Boots Coconut and Almond Intensive Hair Mask for the price of £1.99 for a 350ml tub. At the time I purchased this hair mask there was also a Honey and Jojoba variety available. The tub is round in shape and made from white plastic. There is a label on the tub which has quite an attractive, eye-catching picture of a coconut on the front along with the product name and the "Boots Ingredients" logo.
The tub has a screw on/off lid. The hair mask itself is a white, slightly pearly looking, thick cream. Immediately upon opening the tub you can smell the strong scent of coconut with a hint of almond. This hair mask is used in the same way as most conditioners, you apply it to wet hair after shampooing and rinsing. For best results you leave it for 5 minutes before rinsing it out.
I usually rub this conditioner well into the ends of my hair and smooth only a small bit near the roots as I am prone to greasy hair, and it is the ends of my hair that I feel are dry and need attention. My hair is medium length and quite thick. I find that a little of this conditioner spreads out and goes quite a long way, meaning the tub lasts for ages. I try to leave the conditioner in for as long as possible but there are times when I definitely haven't made it the full 5 minutes as I have been in too much of a rush!
This conditioner rinses out easily and leaves my hair feeling really soft. My hair is prone to tangles but when I use this treatment it brushes out quite easily. After drying my hair feels noticeably moisturised and smooth. One thing I really like about this hair product is that the smell stays in your hair all day. The smell is lovely in my opinion, as I do like the smell of coconut.
I tend to use this conditioner about once a week, as it is designed to be an intensive mask. I stick to my normal conditioners other times. Since I have started using this conditioner I have definitely noticed an improvement in the condition of my hair particularly around the ends where it is normally dry and can look a bit straggly.
I think this hair mask is really good value at £1.99, it is much cheaper than other comparable products. Given that you don't use it every day and a little goes a long way, it is something that does not need replacing often. I can't think of any disadvantages of this product so I give it a full 5 star rating along with my recommendation. Thanks for reading/rating and I hope you found this review helpful.
Boots Coconut & Almond Intensive Hair Mask is an intensive conditioner which is certainly within the realms of the affordable for most people. It comes in a tub which has a screw lid and has a coconut and almond on the front of the tub and a list of ingredients and directions on the bottom of the tub. A tub contains 350 mls of the cream and it costs just £1.99 from Boots. I think this is a pretty fantastic price as I found that each tub contained enough for about 10 hair masks (and I have long hair) and so that's about 20p per application.
The cream itself is white and is quite thick and creamy with a very strong fragrance of coconut. I know it has almond in it also, but the smell of almond is non-existent really, but I think the almond oil is just a great moisturiser anyway - but any almond aroma is over-powered by the coconut. Because it's in a tub, it is easy to take out as much or as little of the conditioner from the tub that you want - and obviously to return any that you don't use.
Using the conditioner is easy and is simply a matter of smoothing on the cream onto my hair after shampooing. I tend to leave it on for about 10 minutes because I find this allows maximum penetration of the ingredients into my hair. I don't brush it through or anything, but simply smooth it on my hair from the roots to the tips. It takes quite a bit of rinsing through afterwards - and I have to use the shower head on it for a good few minutes to remove the conditioner. If the conditioner isn't completely removed then my scalp gets itchy and my hair is greasy.
The conditioner leaves my hair well hydrated and feeling in good condition. It seems to have a de-frizzing quality to it because I can get away without straightening my hair when I use this (although I do still usually straighten it!). It also leaves my hair smelling really fresh and I have had people remark on how nice my hair smells. I only tend to use it about once a week or it tends to leave my hair a little greasy, but once a week just contributes to my hair looking and feeling good.
Overall, I recommend the Boots Coconut & Almond Intensive Hair Mask because it is just such a good price and the end results are pretty good.
I'm always trying to find a hair treatment which actually makes a difference to my very long, very fine hair. Although mostly unsuccessful, I keep trying. I do love an indulgent feeling hair treatment, and that is one reason I keep coming back to the Boots Coconut & Almond Intensive Hair Mask.
Packaged in a transparent white tub and very affordable at £1.99, it is supposed to improve hair condition and make it smooth and shiny, for normal to dry hair. The product itself is a white, with a pearl-like shine to it. It looks indulgent, and feels silky to the touch as well when you scoop it out of the tube.
I apply the mask through the length of my hair, paying attention to the ends, and as it needs to be left on for a few minutes, I ussualy wrap my hair around my head, where it sticks of its own accord due to the mask being on. The mask is very easy to rinse off, despite being a bit thicker and stickier than normal conditioner.
My hair immediately feels soft, even when still in the shower, once the mask is rinsed off. However, once dry there isn't a hugely discernible difference from when I use normal conditioner. My hair is a little softer and smoother, but not as much as I might hope.
Yet I keep buying the Coconut & Almond Hair Mask, because I enjoy using it - it feels indulgent. I also really like the fragrance. I'm not a huge fan of coconut scented products, and I don't think I'd always want my hair to smell of coconut, but once every week or two I really like having the smell of this mask on my hair - and it does remain on my hair all day, although it fades a bit by afternoon.
So maybe you could say I'm wasting my money, given that this mask makes very little difference to the condition of my hair and that I could probably get a coconut scented conditioner for less, but I like using the Boots Coconut & Almond Hair Mask.
I'm currently using the Boots Ingredients Coconut and Almond range of hair care products. I'm not brand loyal when it comes to shampoos and conditioners, I'm happy to use whichever products happen to be on offer or seem to be the best value.
The Boots Coconut and Almond Intensive Hair Mask costs just £1.99, and it comes in a 350ml tub. The hair mask is much thicker in consistency that the regular coconut and almond conditioner, however it's not as thick as a lot of hair masks that I've used, it's a kind of pearlescent opaque white in colour. It states that it's for normal to dry hair, my hair is probably normal and maybe just a little on the dry side so this seems perfect for me.
This is formulated with extracts of coconut and almond, and you can definitely smell the coconut in this. It's quite an intense coconut smell, both in the tub and when you are using it in the shower, I also find that the coconut fragrance lingers in my hair for the rest of the day as well. The lingering coconut fragrance isn't too overpowering in my hair, but it's just subtle enough to be noticeable if I've wafted my hair. The fragrance of this conditioner reminds me of summer, sun tan lotion and summer holidays, it's quite a sweet fragrance, but it's not too sickly sweet. I can't smell the almond in this at all, the coconut is literally the only thing that I can smell.
As with most hair masks the directions for use are simple; smooth intensive mask through hair after shampooing, for best results, leave for 5 minutes and rinse thoroughly. I do use this along with the matching coconut and almond shampoo, and I'm alternating this hair mask and the regular coconut and almond conditioner as I always get through two bottles of conditioner to every one bottle of shampoo. I always leave this in for much more that the stated 5 minutes as I always choose to use the hair mask in the shower when I've got loads of other things to do as well, such as a scrub and shaving my legs etc. I apply the hair mask and then pile my hair up on top of my head secured with a bulldog clip whilst I get on with the other things.
I find that this hair mask is easy to apply as it is quite thick, and it is easy enough to coat my hair completely in it, I always use a tonne of conditioner hence why I get through two bottles to just one bottle of shampoo. This rinses out well, but it does still feel as though my hair is coated in the hair mask after I've rinsed it out, in a good way not a bad way though.
Once I get out of the shower my hair is supremely easy enough to comb through after using this hair mask, with no tangles whatsoever. My hair feels completely nourished and in much better condition, even whilst still wet. Once my hair is dry it definitely feels and looks very healthy and clean, and is lovely and super soft and shiny after using this hair mask, it definitely feels intensely moisturised, and any frizzy bits are banished.
Overall I'm happy with this for the low price, I think that it is much more intensely moisturising than the regular coconut and almond conditioner, however it is probably too much for every time I wash my hair, so I'm happy to alternate them both. Like most products it works best with the other matching products in the range, and I would definitely buy this again.
i take great pride in my hair, as I'm sure every person does but my naturally dry curly hair is a cause for constant worry that it is not nourished enough, hence why I stepped into action and decided to buy a hair mask. However, I am a student, therefore value for money is crucial. I have always been recommended Boots products because they are good value for money and at £1.09, i wasn't going to argue.
I did what was instructed and kept the mask on for five minutes before washing it out of my hair and after applying it on already conditioned hair, if anything my hair felt drier than it felt after I washed out the hair mask. Just to make sure I had done it right, I then applied it again, waited 5 minutes, washed it out and again, my hair felt very coarse.
As I was not an expert on hair masks, I wondered whether I would truly notice the effects when I dried my hair. Unfortunately, my hair was quite dry, fluffy and hard to control when it was dried and styled. If anything, drying my hair was as hard a task as when I put no product in my hair.
This was not the effect I had anticipated and the effects were worse than my standard hair routine. My hair is notoriously challenging to handle so it is probably my own fault by buying a very cheap brand but I didn't expect a product to fail that badly. I'm sure it is probably a lot better for finer hair but if you have thick hair, don't go near it. Sorry Boots.
After badly damaging my hair recently I'd stocked up on so many deep conditioning hair masks and treatments to try and give it a bit of life again.
There are so many products you can buy with varied success all depending on the extent of damage to type of hair, and all of these products vary in prices to. One of my successes however have been the Boots Coconut and Almond Intensive Hair Mask.
I have used Boots Coconut and Almond shampoo before and really liked how it made my hair feel so had high hopes for this product.
It is one of the cheapest products I've bought to try revitalise my locks and worth every penny. For just over £2 you get a 350ml tub of conditioner, not a fancy tub but I wasn't buying it for the tub. It's full with a shiny looking pearly white coloured conditioner. It definitely smells like coconut but is mellowed out by that nutty almond scent, so quite refreshing yet not too sickly coconutty either.
The conditioner is quite thick when scooping it out of the tub with your fingers but it smoothes along your hair with ease. It is meant to go on towel dried hair, however as my hair is extremely damaged I applied it to dry hair and again it smoothed over my hair easily. The refreshing summery scent remains on your hair whilst applying it and for the duration of it being on your hair. Many of these conditioning treatments I leave on overnight now and then and the scent with this one was still there when I woke up.
Obviously due to how damaged my hair was I wasn't expecting miracles from the conditioner but I was impressed by the how it did make my hair feel. It was certainly a lot smoother and more manageable - bearing in mind I struggled to get a brush through my seriously messed up locks beforehand. With regular use of this product my hair is much easier to handle, and alongside extra trims my hair is beginning to look more restored and healthy. I'd definitely reccomend this product to people looking to treat their hair, the price is brilliant compared to some products and yet it works just as well.
I have no brand loyalty when it comes to conditioner. I like to change regularly so my hair does not get used to a product, and this will often depend on what's on offer at the time.
I put my hair through a lot, and also to a certain extent leave it to its own devices - washing it every day then drying and maybe straightening it, or just sticking in a pony tail out of my way. Every week or so I try to do a deep conditioning treatment just to give my hair a bit of TLC!
I decided to try the Boots Coconut & Almond Intensive Hair Mask, mainly because I love the small of coconut. It is suitable for normal to dry hair, and claims to be specially formulated to smooth frizz, leaving hair soft, shiny, tangle free and deeply moisturised.
**What it looks like**
The mask comes in a round 350ml tub with a screw top lid. The mask is white and shimmery, and very thick.
**How to use**
After washing hair with shampoo, smooth the mask through your hair. It is very easy to use - as it is so thick it glides onto your hair easily. Leave for five minutes and then rinse thoroughly. Style (or not!) as usual. There are no directions for how often you should use, but I think it is best to use every week rather than every day for it to have more of an effect.
**Does it work?**
After rinsing it off, my hair already feels like it has less tangles than usual and it is easy to get a comb through. The smell of the mask in the tub isn't great - a bit chemically - but it does leave my hair smelling of coconut. After drying my hair is noticeably shinier than usual and looking really healthy. It leaves it feeling very smooth, and makes it lovely to run your fingers through with no knots or tangles. When I have straightened it afterwards it is easier to do and seems to last longer. My hair is fairly frizzy at times and this definitely helps to eliminate the frizz.
**Would I recommend?**
Yes I definitely would. Not for every day use, but for special occasions when you want your hair to look its best.
**Where can I buy?**
Only available at Boots costing around £2!
Thanks for reading.
More than once a week I like to use an intensive conditioner on my wayward locks. Having a frizzy mess as a hair do means I am prone to dry split ends alot and although I have decent trims and the likes regular and always condition my hair after washing it I do find it ver beneficial to use a thicker hair mask on my hair a couple of times a week a least.
This one I spotted recently in my local Boots stores costing about £1.99 a tub and in a 350ml size that seemed a good deal to me!
The Packaging is simple. The conditioner comes in a see through, large frosted white in colour tub with a screw on/off lid to the top of it and on that lid and on the side of the tub we are told that it is Boots Ingredients Coconut & Almond Intensive Hair Mask 'Normal To Dry Hair'. On the bottom of the tub other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and how to use it, warnings are listed as are the ingredients used and the size stated (as I have listed already) and contact details for Boots are given. Nice, informative and simple unisex packaging this is which is easy to open and close etc.
A Bit About The Product According To the Information Listed On The Bottom Of The Tub:
With extracts of Coconut & Almond Boots Ingredients Intensive Hair Mask is specially formulated to smooth frizz, leaving hair soft, shiny, tangle free and deeply moisturised.
Well the conditioner is white and rather thick and although could be described as smooth which it sort of is its also rather gloopy and like I said thick with a slightly shimmery look to it. It has a very rich, fresh and clean aroma of coconuts to it though I can't detect the fragrance of almonds to it at all it is very pleasant indeed.
To use it all you need to do is take a reasonably sized blob of it and distribute it through damp/wet hair and leave it for at least 5 minutes after shampooing the hair first and then rinse it out. It doesn't feel greasy when applying it though a little of it goes a long way and it is very simple to rinse out indeed.
Using it is very simple indeed and a little goes a very long way to and the fragrance after using it lingers freshly on the hair for a good few hours so much so people have commented on how nice I smell after using it!
This is a great treatment for detangling and adding a little moisture to the hair but not too much. It helps to tame frizz and makes styling wayward locks easier without weighing the hair down at all. The only negative with this I can say is that it doesn't make my hair shiny or look glossier after using it apart from that this is a great hair conditioner for most hair types, male or female!
Only available in Boots stores.

- I have East Asian (Chinese) hair, so the texture is different (i.e. each individual hair is thicker, and fewer products work on it)
- Due to working as a hair model, my hair's been bleached, coloured, permed, straight permed, chopped short asymmetrically etc
- I am now trying to grow it long and healthy again
- Shampoo used: Kerastase Oleo Relax
Because my shampoo is so expensive, Boots Coconut and Almond mask is perfect - great value for money.
I use it as a conditioner (only need a handful to cover my now shoulder length hair), and leave it on for 3 mins in the shower, as instructed. It leaves my hair much softer and shinier.
The smell is lovely when you put it on, and washes off leaving my hair odourless (I don't really want to smell like coconut all day).
Only thing is: don't get it in your eyes. It seems to sting more than getting any type of shampoo or conditioner... not that it's a big issue. Otherwise, perfect product.
I have now been using this for a year, and am not thinking of switching at all.
Having curly hair that has a mind of its own, I often find myself rocking the bedhead look unintentionally! I'm therefore always on the lookout for hydrating and conditioning products that will help to reduce frizz after I wash my hair. Ordinary conditioner helps, but just doesn't pack enough punch to properly hydrate my hair, so I decided to look for a moisturising hair mask. Unfortunately, this wasn't as easy as I'd thought- although there were quite a few hair masks out there, they all seemed to come in sachets, not very cost effective if you're going to be using them weekly. In the end, Dooyoo came to the rescue, as I read a review about this Coconut and Almond mask from Boots. Coming in a large tub, it sounded like exactly what I was after, so I headed down to my local branch and bought one. I was very impressed by the price- at £1.99 for a 350ml tub, it worked out much cheaper than buying a tiny sachet for 99p.
This mask comes in a wide plastic tub with a screw on lid, tastefully decorated with a huge coconut balanced on a tiny almond. Unsurprisingly, the mask contains both these ingredients, albeit in small quantities, judging by their low position on the list. The large size of the tub makes it easy to scoop out the thick, gloopy mask inside- this kind of consistency makes scooping an absolute necessity! The mask is a pearly white colour, and smells of- you guessed it- coconut and almond. I love the refreshing sweetness of coconut, so I assumed I'd love the scent of this mask, but the coconut is somewhat masked (ha ha) by the slightly bitter almond. This put me off at first, but I've warmed to it- it's nice to find a product that actually smells like its natural ingredients, rather than a fragranced interpretation of them.
Using this mask is simple- apply it after shampooing, leave for 5 minutes (for best results) and then rinse off. I tend to scoop out a generous blob, then smooth it through my wet hair with my fingers, from root to tip. Because of its thick consistency, it stays put during the 5 minutes, while I get on with the rest of my shower. It does take a little longer to rinse off than shampoo, but I always ensure that I do this thoroughly, because any mask left in the hair can make it quite greasy. A word of warning at this point: avoid getting this in your eyes at all costs! On one occasion, I made the mistake of getting a few drops of rinsing water in my eye, and it stang twice as much as shampoo, and left me with a very red eye for the rest of the day- not good!
After using this mask, which I tend to do once a week, my hair always feels noticeable softer and smoother to the touch, and these effects last until the next wash. My hair looks better too, with a healthy shine to it. It has helped with frizz control too, although sometimes I still find I need to apply serum to completely tame my curls! The scent of the product doesn't linger on my hair, but I don't mind this too much- it shows that it's not over fragranced. Because of these positive results, I'll definitely be buying this hair mask (or another from the same range) again when the tub runs out. It's an inexpensive way to give your hair a pick me up!
Product: Coconut and Almond Intensive Hair Mask
What they say:
With extracts of coconut and almond, Boots Ingredients Coconut & Almond Intensive Hair Mask is specially formulated to smooth frizz, leaving hair soft, shiny, tangle-free and deeply moisturised.
I've been using Boots Coconut and Almond Intensive Hair Mask for a few years now and i can honestly state that it's one of the best hair masks i've ever used and believe me i've used a lot!!
I have my hair highlighted and cut every 6-8 weeks or so, so i want to keep it in as good condition as i possibly can. It's recommended that you use a intensive hair mask at least once a week, especially if you're using heat appliances such as hairdryers and straighteners as we all know that putting heat directly onto the hair can be damaging over time, using a mask helps prevent this.
The smell of the treatment is just as what it says on the tub, coconut and almond, very pleasant and sweet smelling but not too over powering.
The mask is designed for normal to dry hair, my hair is quite thick and can be prone to frizz but using the mask seems to tame this. After washing your hair you only need to smooth the mask throughout your hair, leave it on for 5 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. I not only use the mask as an intensive treatment but i also use it as a normal conditioner too.
After using the mask it leaves my hair feeling soft and silky and best of all tangle free.
The mask comes in a generous sized tub, a pot lasts me for quite a while, approximately 3 months or so and that's with me also using it as a regular conditioner.
My hair stylist as commented that my hair is in fab condition, no dry or split ends and i do think that by using the mask regularly plays a big part in this.
It's definitely value for money and best of all you notice the results instantly, a definite recommendation from me.
BOOTS INGREDIENTS COCONUT & ALMOND INTENSIVE HAIR MASK.
A very strange title - why put 'ingredients' into the name? I can't quite get the 'mask' bit either but it seems to be how they are labelling things these days.
With natural extracts of coconut and almond oil, this conditioner is specially formulated for deep moisturising, smoothing frizz to leave hair soft, shiny & tangle free.
I have tried several conditioners in this range. The one I have used the most is
BOOTS COCONUT & ALMOND OIL INTENSIVE CONDITIONER
FOR DRY & DAMAGED HAIR
I have had this conditioner in my bathroom for over two years. I bought it on buy one get one free & also bought the LEAVE IN CONDITIONER at the same time. It lasts & lasts - in fact I still haven't opened the second jar as I saw this new one called
BOOTS INGREDIENTS COCONUT & ALMOND INTENSIVE HAIR MASK
& decided to give it a try to see if it was any different.
In fact there seems to be no difference in the intensive conditioner for dry/damaged hair & the intensive hair mask for normal to dry hair which seems to have replaced it. They are both excellent. They say to leave on for 5 minutes bit I don't usually have time for that so I rinse out straight away & it still does the job.
Price wise the older one (BOOTS COCONUT & ALMOND OIL INTENSIVE CONDITIONER FOR DRY & DAMAGED HAIR 400ml) was about £2.50 but I got two for that as it was on BOGOF.
BOOTS INGREDIENTS COCONUT & ALMOND INTENSIVE HAIR MASK 350ml is £1.99
It comes in a strong plastic jar that you can see through with a sensible screw top lid. No fiddling around with squeezing tubes & trying to get the last bit out!
The conditioner hair mask leaves no greasy or sticky residue & the hair is wonderfully soft, smooth & bouncy & doesn't leave it looking as if it might have split ends.
The smell of coconut & almond stays in the hair in a subtle way. My partner is always sniffing my hair saying how lovely it smells. When I had a spell in hospital people commented on the lovely smell!
I occasionally use the conditioner that comes with my hair colour but I much prefer the Boots coconut & almond conditioner .
Top marks from me for excellence & price.
Don't forget you will earn Boots Advantage Points, you often get given vouchers for future purchases + Boots give an over 60 discount of 10% on their own products so if you qualify for this it makes it very good buy.
Now on my second tub of Hair Mask. I have really long hair which can look limp and lifeless the wrong products are used or not washed out properally. Bought the first tub as a "suck it and see", have spent a fortune on hair products over the years but discovered Boots spray in conditioner in this range so thought I would try the Hair Mask. I was not disappointed.
I love the smell of coconuts it always reminds me of Summer and suncreams ;-). Due to the length of my hair I only wash it every two days but can still smell fresh at the end of day 2. I use it everytime I wash my hair and have only left it for 3 mins but it get the most out of the hair mask to do need to follow instructions and leave it on for 5 mins plus and don't forget your ends!! It can be messy as you have to dig out a handfull which when the tub is new and full can be tricky.
The cream itself is a pearlised smooth texture which smooths through the hair, it washes out out easily and smells great - if you like coconuts and almonds. Would also recommend the spray in conditioner in the same range
I have to confess that my reason for buying this was that it was cheaper than most other hair masques in the Boots I was in, and I was feeling a bit mean and not wanting to spend much yet still expecting miracle results.
This large pot cost me £1.99 for 350ml. Bargain.
The smell is delicious, I am a real sucker for coconut anything. And with the added almond in this is really does smell amazing. And I can genuinely smell it on my hair for the rest of the day after I've used it.
The texture of the product is quite thick but not at all sticky. It is a white, slightly pearlised colour. As it comes in a pot you need to get your fingers right in it to get a scoop out.
The first time I used this, I just applied it like it was conditioner - so not too much. But found that it had no effect at all. So from then on I learned to apply a good palmful to my hair - which is bobbed shoulder length, so add even more for longer hair.
The instructions advise leaving this on for 5 mins. And that is the very least in my opinion. Any less and it really will have no effect whatsoever. But thankfully, this product does not leave any residue in your hair, or make it feel heavy (as long as you wash it out properly)
To be honest I wouldn't say that my hair feels nourished by this masque, it is slightly shinier, and perhaps a little lighter, but the ends feel no softer, and still slightly dry. I think maybe that's what I get for not wanting to spend a bit more money.
Designed with the intention to smooth frizz, leaving hair soft, shiny, tangle-free and deeply moisturised /
