Wella Clear Scalp Hair Mask
I bought this hair mask in the summer from salonskincare.co.uk as they were having an end of summer sale this year so I bought this mask as it was less than £5 and it sounded too good to be true really but it turned out to be a fantastic product!
- Product description (from beautybay.com)
"Wella SP Clear Scalp Mask is an intensive anti dandruff and scalp care treatment which effectively yet gently clears hair and scalp of even the most stubborn dandruff and fights the formation of new dandruff. Effectively cares for the hair."
- About the product
The mask comes in a white and purple tub which contains 200ml of product. The mask is white in colour and the product claims to intensively clear hair and scalp from dandruff (not a very nice topic for a review I know!). The tub has a screw top lid and it also has a secondary clear plastic lid on the inside - although it doesn't work very well!
- Scent, texture and consistency
I don't usually like scented skincare products but with hair products it is a must and this product does have a scent - it smells like a salon which is the best way I can describe this product. The scent is fresh, fairly sweet, light and it smells like products that may be used in a salon/hairdressers although there is a slight plastic scent too. The texture of this product is really creamy, silky and a little bit gloopy. The consistency is very thick and not runny at all as you would expect.
- Using the product and results
I have been using this product once/twice a week for the past couple of months and I adore this product! To use: I apply this product to towel dried hair or I just lightly wet my hair and I apply a £2 coin size amount to my scalp and I massage in - sometimes I may use more. The mask applies and massages quickly and easily into my scalp and hair. The thick consistency and smooth texture allows the product to massage in well. Once applied and massaged in, I then twist my hair up into a bun for the day - I usually apply this either a few hours before my shower or in the morning before my shower so it has time to work well. The instructions on the bottom of the tub state to apply this product to the hair/scalp and leave for five minutes but I find that this product doesn't work in that some period of time so I need to leave it on for a lot longer. After I have left this product on my hair/scalp for a good few hours I take my hair out of the bun and my hair does feel a bit mattified/hard but this goes immediately when my hair is washed.
I wash my hair as normal to remove this product, I shampoo a couple of times and I only need to apply a tiny amount of conditioner as a detangler after using this. The mask is very easy to mask out and while my hair is wet it leave my hair feeling very smooth, moisturised and fairly detangled. Once my hair is dry, my hair feels smooth hydrated and the dandruff/dryness is completely gone (well about 95% gone) and this effect lasts until I wash my hair again. I have been trying new shampoos and trying to use up old ones and a lot of the shampoos have made my scalp really irritated and very dry which has led to flakiness so this product has been a lifesaver over the past month or so. The scent of this product is fairly nice and it does transfer slightly to my hair, it is especially noticeable when my hair is wet but the scent doesn't last long. I haven't experienced any negative reactions/effects from this product.
- Price and availability
I bought this mask when it was on sale at salonskincare.co.uk a few months ago and it was no more than £5 at the time (I think it was about £3.99). This product can be bought from: beautybay.co.uk for £14.95 (for 200ml), lookfantastic.co.uk for £20.25, Amazon.co.uk for £12.50 and various other online sites. I think the RRP/full price is a bit expensive and I would buy this product again if it was on offer/sale - I still have about half a tub left and I use it fairly often.
*Quick and easy to use - not very messy
*Gets rid of dandruff/dryness immediately, for me anyway - fairly long lasting effect
*Great price when on offer/sale
*Fairly nice scent
*Easy to wash out and it doesn't leave my residue
*No negative reactions/effects from this product
*Full price is a bit expensive but it is worth it, from my experience but I will buy it if it is on sale/offer
