Advantages: makes hair feel lightweight, smooth. Smells nice
Disadvantages: Can be pricey, best to find it on offer
Judging my previous reviews, I'm sure you'd be surprised to find there was a hair treatment I haven't tried. I have recently changed my hair products, ditching colour protectants to repair and protect products. This is because my colour went too dark and the last thing I wanted was to prolong the shade. I also wanted the shine and gloss back into my hair.
For those who don't know, a hair masque is an extra treat you can give your hair, in addition to conditioner. Many experts suggest a treatment at least once a week, but for the last few years I have used a treatment after every wash, as it really does benefit my hair. If you buy a good quality mask that suits your hair needs, your hair should be able to take it no problem without there being any build-up. Just give a good rinse afterwards, as you would do with conditioner.
I had tried the sachet of this particular Masque, the Patene Spa Inspired Care Repair & Protect masque - a few weeks ago and was most impressed with the results, so decided to splurge on the real thing, a 200ml sized pot of it costing £4.07. (It is now on offer for an incredible £1.99 at Superdrug!!). I unfortunately bought it before this offer, and £4 is generally the maximum I would be prepared to spend on a hair masque, unless it was for a special occasion or extra special treat.
The packaging is quite sleek - a navy blue lid, white tub with gold and white writing. It certainly looks posh on our bathroom shelf. But, is it any good?
"Instantly restore the look of health to your damaged, tired hair with this rich, luxurious treatment".
After shampoo and conditioner, I apply this throughout my hair and leave for a few minutes before rinsing off. The smell is quite pleasant - it reminds me of lilies, but with a classic conditioner mixed in. Not too overbearing, just pleasant and fragrant enough. 200ml might not sound like a lot, but you really don't need too much of this product as it glides through the hair easily. For a professional touch you could use a wide toothcomb and comb the product through (as they do in my hairdressers) and leave it. The longer you leave it, the better the results.
I always consider a good hair masque to be one which instantly changes the weight of my hair - making it feel ultra light is a good sign of quality and this masque does just that. I instantly notice the difference in how my hair feels, before I've even rinsed the masque off. Even though my hair is still wet, it looks like it has been given a boost and I can see the shine.
When I have rinsed it all off and I've finished drying my hair, I really notice the difference. My hair is really easy to run my hands through - there are no knots and barely any flyaways. The end result is really smooth, wonderfully smelling hair. I would also say it's improve it's glossyness too, which I've found is not as easy to achieve on brunette hair as it is with blonde hair.
Through research I found this masque is just one of five treatments that are available in the Repair & Protect range. I would strongly recommend this product/range to anyone whose hair is lacking smoothness and needs a little tlc to repair any damaged ends. I haven't used Pantene before using this masque, but it actually makes me consider switching to them as I have been really impressed with this product.
I would say this product is one of the top 5 hair masques I have ever used - certainly one of the best for under a fiver. If you can get it whilst it is onsale in Superdrug then I'd say it's an absolute bargain for £1.99!

Summary: A really great hair masque for under a fiver
