As I have said in my other Tigi reviews I love their products but unless they are cheap I don't buy them much anymore. However a few months back I was in TK Maxx somewhere I have never shopped before and I came across a few Tigi products. They don't stock the full range just odds and ends and this was one of the items I saw. These days I don't get to have my hair cut and coloured every 6 weeks as I am too busy with my baby daughter to fit it in so my hair really needs a lot of TLC.
This pot cost me £9 for 200ml. The pot is bright blue with a florescent green lid. The conditioner is recommended for all hair types but specifically coloured hair. The conditioner describes itself as a spa treatment which will simulate and condition your hair.
To use the conditioner you are recommended to wash your hair and then towel dry then for;
Normal to oily hair- use once a week and massage scalp and hair for a minute then rinse
Normal to dry hair- use twice a week apply to scalp and hair massaging into the mid lengths and ends before rinsing.
Dry flaky scalp- use twice weekly, brush hair well, apply to the scalp then to the hair massaging for 3-5 minutes then rinsing with cool water.
Extreme damaged hair- use every 5-7 days, after shampooing towel dry hair then apply a generous amount to the mid lengths and ends leave on for 5-10 minutes for deep conditioning. It also advises you can use heat for extreme damage.
I used the directions for extreme damage as I hadn't had my hair cut for a while and I swim a lot so my hair is quite battered. The conditioner is really thick and gloopy it coated my hair really well. The conditioner smells really nice, it is very minty and when you apply it to your scalp in tingles. I was advised by my hairdresser before when using hair masks such as this to wrap cling film around your scalp and then use the hairdrier on a warm setting. This causes your scalp to heat up and the conditioner will then penetrate the hair cuticle further than normal. I tried this and I left it on for the full 10 minutes.
The conditioner did take some time to rinse out as it is really thick. I rinsed with cool water as I find this adds extra shine to my hair.
After towel drying my hair I styled as normal using a hair drier and straightening irons. My hair felt really soft, it had transformed from straw to silk. My split ends were less noticable and my hair had a nice shine. The conditioner didn't leave my hair feeling too heavy which was a bonus and the smell of mint lingered for most of the day.
I have since been using this weekly and the difference in my hair is amazing. I would definately recommend this, it is expensive but it is such a good treat for your hair. 5 out of 5 from me!
Tigi is a relatively new brand of salon type products designed for the hair, they first came onto the market in 2003 and are endorsed by British Toni & Guy hair stylists. I'm a sucker for all things beauty related-especially if they come in great packaging so it is no surprise that the Tigi Bed Head Treat Me Right Peppermint hair mask ended up in my bathroom cabinet!
The main reason why I purchased this product was after using the Scott Cornwall's Colour B4 product which is a mild hair stripper. I noticed that my hair was weak and dull and had tried other conditioning products and the VO5 hot oil to little avail.
The hair mask came in a funky looking blue pot with a lime green lid which instantly caught my attention. The fonts used were also modern and eye catching and overall this created an expensive looking product.
Inside was 200ml of serum which wasn't hard but wasn't exactly soft either but an in between texture which was similar to hair wax. To touch the substance is smooth and thick- thicker than my usual conditioner but this didn't faze me.
Scent-wise the peppermint is very strong but I found this to be refreshing and not overpowering it made me even more excited to use the product due to the scent as my everyday conditioner doesn't really smell of much and certainly the scent doesn't stay put after I have washed the conditioner out.
There was directions for use inside and I followed guidance for 'extreme damage' due to using the colour stripper product and 2 hair dyes within the space of 9 days! For 'extreme damage' it said to use every 5-7 days after washing hair and apply the serum to the roots, middle and ends of the hair. It instructed to leave the hair mask on the hair for 5-10 minutes. On my first application I actually forgot that I had the serum on so it was probably 12-15 minutes that I left it on for. It does say to add heat for extra conditioning so what I did was put cling film over the serum and wrapped my hair up to stop heat from escaping. This is the same trick I used when using Scott Cornwall's Colour B4 product.
Upon washing out I noticed that my hair felt instantly smoother but this wasn't the only promise that Tigi made on the box-they also promised that this product was leave hair smooth, shiny and healthy. When my hair was dried the shine was noticeable and my hair was smooth but as for healthiness-this remains to be seen. I guessed that the health of my hair would improve as I continued to use the hair mask.
Since then I have used the hair mask several times and haven't really noticed a difference my hair still falls out quite a bit due to the colour and heat damage that my hair has endured over the years.
Due to having very long hair I use a lot of the hair mask in just one application and after several applications my pot is very nearly empty! I paid £14.10 for this tub, I justified the big price tag by reasoning that my hair was in a very bad condition so I needed to pay a little extra for a good product but unfortunately this wasn't really the case!
My mum treated me to various hair and beauty goodies at Christmas and one of the products in the selection she created was the "Tigi Bed Head Treat Me Right Peppermint Hair Mask" As someone with shoulder length hair I often give my hair an intense conditioning treatment once a fortnight or weekly if I have been swimming a lot. I hadn't tried this one in the past as it is not one that I come across in my normal shopping habits but I think my mum bought it at her local hair salon.
What is it
This is an intense conditioner by Salon brand Tigi. It comes in a blue and green plastic tub for 200mls which is the version I have. The hair treatment has several different recommendations for how you should use it depending on our hair type and the damage that is done to your hair. What Tigi claim and promises that this conditioner does is to "creates silky, shiny hair and refreshes the scalp"
The first thing that you notice about this hair treatment when you open the pot is the smell. The tub just screams out blasts of cooling peppermint and gives you quite a wake up if you are feeling a little dozy and sleepy. The scent I actually find a little too strong for my nasal passages I have to say. The next think you notice is how thick and creamy the product is, when you put your fingers into the tub there are clear indentations and marks left from your fingers as you scoop some of it out. When I rub it between my fingers it is really smooth and silky and seems to leave a film on my fingers.
The first time I used this my hair was feeling a bit lank and dull as I had been swimming a few times that week so I decide to put the conditioner on my hair for the longer time of about 10 minutes. What I did was wash my hair as normal then massage some into the ends of my hair and then work the conditioner up my hair to the roots. What I did then was put a shower cap on. The reason for this is I tend to then have a soak in the bath whilst a leave in conditioners does it stuff. What I noticed after a couple of minutes was a tingling on my scalp I was not unduly worried and whilst it tingled it didn't hurt at all. However by about 6 or 7 minutes my scalp did start to feel a bit itchy so I decide to take the shower cap of and wash the conditioner out. On drying my hair I noticed that it was significantly softer than with my normal conditioner and equally softer still than with my normal intensive conditioner. My scalp still remained a little itchy that night but it had worn off in the morning thought the scalp was itchy I couldn't and my husband told me there was no redness to my skin.
A week or so later when I went to do a treatment on my hair again I did all the same steps but kept the shower cap off reasoning that it was probably the warmth from my head that had perhaps over stimulated the peppermint. However I again noticed the tingling then itching sensation on my scalp after about the same length of time. The result on my hair still remained very pleasing but I was a little concerned about how it reacted on my scalp.
My last time of using this treatment was a week later I decided to try it for a shorter period of time and just go for the 3 minutes that is recommend for normal to dry hair. Now whilst I did get some tingling on my scalp I didn't get the itchy sensations that I had from previous longer periods of leaving the conditioner on. However the result on my hair were disappointing I felt and whilst my hair was soft this was no way as soft and it had from the previous longer periods and I could see no difference in anyway to my usual conditioner results.
I am in two minds about this product really, the result that I got from leaving it on my hair for about 7 minutes were fantastic and more than lived up to the claims of producing silky and shiny hair. However when I left it on that long my scalp just felt itchy and tingling and I am not that much of a martyr for my hair that I will tolerate that. I do have some sensitive skin issues at times for example I can't use Daz washing powder as that makes me itch too so I am unsure if there is a chemical in this product that just doesn't agree with my skin. The result for leaving on for shorter periods were adequate but nothing that I think justifies the price tag of around £13. I would recommend this product if you don't have sensitive skin and can leave it on a good length of time but if you have any skin sensitivity issues I think this is one to give a wide berth. As it did give good result when left on for nearly 10 minutes I am going to give it 3 stars but as it make my head itch and gave poor result on shorter times I don't think I can give it any more than that.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Every year one my friend insists in buying me hair products in hope that maybe one day my hair will eventually heal following the years of self cruelty, this year has been no different and she decided to buy me this FANTASTIC product along with a couple of other TIGI products that her salon stock. I have always LOVED the TIGI products, and I think the funky packaging is great!! If your town has a 'Salon Secrets' your more than likely to buy it from there! You can also find this online but beware of fakes as I remember hearing a while back counter fit bedhead products were being made and they actually caused infections... I have warned you!
Tigi Treat me Right is a conditioning hair treatment mask that smells of fresh peppermint - sure to wake you up on a bad morning! It provides intense moisture and is great on coarse, dry hair types or hair that has become dehydrated or suffered damage over the years. The menthol gives a lovely cool stimulating feeling to the scalp whilst adding shine and rehydrating, if you do use a lot (and it is tempting to grab a huge dollop!) your eyes will start to sting a little as it can be rather intense!! Apply after shampooing and generously massage into the hair and scalp. Leave for 5 minutes and rinse off. The product I have is a huge 750ml bucket following the range it is a funky blue and green colour with the bold BEDHEAD print - I think it may last me a while!!
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Normal to Oily
Use once a week. Apply to scalp and ends. Massage scalp and hair for 1 minute then wait to feel tingle/cooling sensation then rinse.
Normal to Dry
Use twice weekly. Apply to scalp and hair for 1-3 minutes then massage mid lengths to ends of hair and rinse.
Dry, Flaky Scalp
Use twice weekly. After shampooing, brush hair well. Then apply to the scalp and then to the hair. Massage for 3-5 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
Great for chemically treated hair. Use every 5-7 days. After shampooing, towel dry and apply to scalp, then apply a generous amount from mid lengths to ends. Leave on for 5-10 minutes then rinse. Use heat for deeper conditioning.
I have been very impressed with the results so far, I think my hair is so beyond repair that it's never going to look as shiny as the beautiful Cheryl Coles or such like but it does add a little extra shine and softens well. Fingers crossed! I love the packaging and think the whole range is brilliant. I would definitely recommend this product! :-)
Any questions are of course welcome as always!
I was converted to TIGI products by my hairdressers who use a vast range of their shampoos and conditioners - which all smell delightful. So, I thought, if it's good enough for a salon it's good enough for me! I have purchased a number of their products over the years (usually online where you can get some good discounts if you shop around) and the Treat Me Right Peppermint Mask is one of my favourites.
This is a hair mask, so basically a really intensive conditioner that you use about once a week. It's great when you are having a pampering session as you can just relax in the bath and leave it to work it's magic. It comes in a plastic pot of 200ml, the bottom of the pot is bright blue in colour and the screw lid is pea green - so really bright and cheerful in your bathroom! Inside the pot there is a pale blue conditioner, which is really thick and slightly gloopy. As soon as you remove the lid you are hit with a really strong, fresh minty scent. This retails at around £15 per pot, so isn't a cheap product but if you shop online you can probably find it a little cheaper than that.
This is applied in place of a regular conditioner, so after shampooing and rinsing. It is really easy to apply - just dig in to the pot with your fingers and apply 'a generous amount' to your hair. Obviously, the generous amount instruction is open to interpretation and depends on hair length! I have quite thick, long hair so I usually use quite a sizeable dollop - a good heap in the palm of my hand. This should be massaged into your scalp but most generously applied to you mid lengths and ends where most damage is likely to be. From experience, I have tended to not apply too much to my scalp as I find that this can leave my hair feeling a little oily as the product is so intense, and quite difficult to rinse out.
Once massaged in for 1-2 minutes, simply relax and leave it to do it's job. You can feel it actually working as you get a tingly sensation on your scalp. I usually leave this on for about 5 minutes to ensure it has time to work. After this, rinse thoroughly. I always rinse for longer than is probably necessary as I have learnt from experience that it's not the easiest to remove completely from your hair. Even when I have thought that it has been rinsed thoroughly on previous occassions I have been left with my hair feeling a little tacky or oily after drying, so a good rinse with cold (as cold as you can tolerate!) tends to work best.
My hair definitely feels pampered after treating with this. The mid lengths and ends do feel less dry and my hair cuticles smoother and shinier. My hair just generally feels softer and healthier to the touch. It is very rich and helps to maintain the colour in my hair too. It is definitely a good luxury pampering product. The one wish that I would have would be if that the lovely minty scent could remain on your hair a bit better after rinsing as it would leave you feeling just washed fresh. However, I guess this is down to personal taste as some people may find their hair smelling of mint a little too much like they have applied toothpaste to it!
As usual for all Tigi Bed Head products this intensive mask smells gorgeous! It's peppermint flavoured and almost good enough to eat. I normally use it when I'm in the bath so I can keep it on for the recommended 10 minutes. The mask is blue and thick and gloopy so you can feel it coating all of your hair. I have shoulder length hair and I probably use about two tablespoons per use. The peppermint in the mix makes your scalp tingle which to me suggests that it's doing something! It is easy to apply and washes right off. My hair is left shiny and moisturised and the peppermint tingle lingers for a while which is nice and leaves you relaxed. However if you are not a fan of the peppermint tingle in products then it is not one for you! Don't make the mistake I made though and leave it on the windowsill in the sun. I had to throw one lot away as it made it smell like plasticine!! You can buy Bed head from salons (they normally display it in the windows) and though it's not a budget buy, this mask is about £10, its well worth the feeling of luxury!
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a Tigi goody bag in an online competition, I gave most of the items to my daughter but kept this Bed Head Hair Mask as I do enjoy using intensive treatments on my hair while I am soaking in the bath.
The hair mask smells delightfully of peppermint which not only serves to make my hair smell delicious but also helps to wake me up on those mornings that I've used this product as there is little more invigorating than the aroma of mint when you're feeling sluggish.
The mask is very thick and gloopy; you simply scoop it out of the tub with your fingers and it's so thick that the imprints from your fingers will stay in the mask for quite a while, I actually like this consistency as it makes it easy to apply to my hair and means I don't waste lots of it down the plughole. I mention this as my previous hair mask was an Avon one which was so thin and sticky that the mere action of moving my cupped hand to my hair would result in me losing much of the mask down my arm and into the bath water.
I leave this Bed Head mask on for about ten minutes and am always extremely impressed with how soft and silky my hair feels afterwards. Rinsing it off is very quick and easy and it leaves no sticky or bitty residue on my hair, unlike some hair masks I have used in the past.
I adore the smell of this while I am sitting around waiting for the hair mask to work it's magic. I had initially been a little concerned that the peppermint smell would make my eyes water but it's actually a very kind smell despite the fact that it's fairly strong. I do find the aroma becomes stronger and stronger as time goes on and this is good as the intensifying smell serves to remind me that this product is doing it's job.
Afterwards my hair felt moisturised and very smooth, my comb flew through it without meeting a single tangle and there was a shine to my hair once it had dried that is rarely there these days. Despite the fact that this is a very thick cream it didn't make my hair feel greasy or lank, sometimes I find this kind of hair mask can leave my hair feeling weighted down with no body or volume yet this one gave me all the benefits of a good quality mask with absolutely none of the negative points.
The gorgeous peppermint aroma lasted on my hair for hours after I had used the mask, which is excellent news as mint is such a clean and pleasing fragrance. I was also impressed with the condition of my hair even after the next wash, after which I had neglected to use this hair mask. Most masks only really give the benefit of such wonderfully conditioned hair until the next time I wash my hair, but even on the second and third washes I felt my hair was still softer and more well nourished than before I discovered this mask.
I hadn't realised this was such an expensive product, but this 200ml tub of Bed Head Hair Mask will cost around £12 - £14 depending on where you shop. This is very expensive for what is basically a hair conditioner, but surprisingly worth the money in my opinion as it does such an excellent job and smells absolutely wonderful.
Unmistakeably Tigi in the same colours as Tigi Girls To shine gel and probably multiple other Tigi products.
It's in an electric blue tub with a lime green lid on it in sort of a semi transparent plastic. I have never seen it in a smaller tub. I have found I get about 16-20 uses from it!
£12 - £15 pounds seems a pretty standard price for this. Some of the discount online retailers sell it cheaper but their stock seems transient. Tigi is a notorious young people's hair care brand and simultaneously known to be expensive for haircare, but I have never had a disappointing product.
My best tip is to get it from the last day of an event - such as the Clothes Show - they often sell it off!
As soon as you open it you smell the mintiness!!! I like it as it smells uite fresh, but don't use it when you have used a floral product - it's not a great result!!!
Even just a small amount does make my thick hair very smooth and very silky. It also seems to have a pretty light shine to it, which is a theme with this range.
One downside I do find is it seems to be so full of chemicals - aside from water I don't recognise much in it. I may be jaded and old fashioned - but I do like using natural extracts!!!
As someone who has long hair, I am always on the search for good hair products and I am a particular fan of deep conditioning treatments to keep my locks in tip top condition. As I don't have my hair cut that regularly, I need something to ensure that it stays well moisturised and looked after in the time between appointments.
I have tried a few products from the TIGI Bed Head range and have so far found them a little hit or miss. However, I was keen to test more products from the range and was pleased when I opened a gift set of their products on Christmas morning. One of the items within the gift box, was a hair mask called 'Treat Me Right'.
As you can see from the picture above, this product comes in a blue plastic pot with a fluorescent green lid. The directions for use and ingredients list are printed on the blue part of the packaging and the description of the hair mask claims to be a spa treatment for the hair which works in only 5 minutes.
On opening the pot, a peppermint aroma hit me in the face and reminded me of strong toothpaste. The similarity to toothpaste does not end there however, as the paste itself is a very gloopy spearmint blue colour, which looks like thick Aquafresh!
Encouraged by the smell and appearance of the conditioner, I shampooed my hair, rinsed and then scooped up a decent amount from the pot. I mainly applied the mask to the lengths of my hair, but did use a little on the roots too. I left the mask on for 5 minutes as per the instructions and found that my head felt a little tingly - a mixture of the mint mask and the cold I think!!
When the 5 minutes was up, I rinsed the mask out easily with warm water and could feel that my hair felt smooth as I squeezed out the excess water. Having towel dried my hair I then combed through it and was pleased to discover no tangles, which is always a good thing! It didn't really leave much scent behind, but that's okay and meant that it wouldn't clash with any other product used.
I am pleased to say that when my hair dried, it was left in very good condition. Slightly moisturised, but without feeling greasy or weighed down and also nice and soft. It has left my hair with a gentle sheen to it too and I found it easy to style.
Treat Me Right comes in a 200ml size and costs around £12, so it isn't cheap. However it is a luxury product and I think that I'll probably get about 6ish applications from the pot, so it isn't too bad. I'm not sure that I'd buy it for myself regularly, but for the occasional pampering treat, I might splurge on this.
I am a huge Tigi Bedhead fan and this Treat Me Right Hair Mask Deep Conditioning Treatment is also another product that I love and thinks works wonder for my hair, I cannot believe I only found this product a year ago and my hair quality has improved drastically since I have been using it.
Treat Me Right Hair Mask helps to get rid of your dry tired hair with its peppermint hair mask conditioner that gives a refreshing cooling sensation, while conditioning my hair, giving it that extra protection and soothing those damaged ends to fight another day, leaving your hair soft and shiny.
For the best results I try and use it once every few weeks to help protect my hair from the damage caused by colouring, drying and straightening. After washing my hair I then condition my hair. I apply to my scalp and hair, leave it for a few minutes and then massage it in for a few minutes, I then leave it for another few minutes to help condition the hair and get the best results from the product, and I then rinse the product out.
It leaves my hair smelling great and feeling soft, when you use this product my head slightly tingles as you can feel it working in my hair, this is one of the better hair treatments that I have used over the years as it gives the best results.
This product retails at around £12 and I think this is well worth it, if you search around online you will probably be able to find it cheaper online as there are some bargains to be had online when it comes to Tigi products if you have the time to look around.
Tigi have created another great product in their range and I cannot wait until the new releases in the bedhead range as all of their products are great and smell wonderful.
