Insta Natural Argan Oil Hair Mask - $17.95
Nothing says beautiful like nice shiny healthy hair! Trust me I should know. Or at least I knew until last year when I decided to get the bright idea of dyeing my hair!! After almost a year of dyeing my hair a brownish/reddish color, I gave up and went back to my natural black/brown hair color. However I have noticed that the natural shine that I normally had in my hair no longer existed due to the dyeing aspect. Nonetheless, when Insta Natural asked me if I was interested in reviewing their Argan Oil Hair Mask, needless to say I jumped at the chance without showing to much embarrassing enthusiasm.
My hair comes all way down to mid waist. So its longer, really long. I get my ends cut every 3-4 months, however with the constant blow drying, straightening and curling, it does a number to my hair. And now that its the cold winter season, my hair could for sure use a lot of help! Moreover, I wash my hair every other day, max every three days depending on the weather and state of my hair. I also don't use shampoos or conditioners with sulfates in them. After I cut this ingredient out of my haircare products, I noticed a serious difference in my hair.
When this mask first arrived to my house I notice that it had a nice creamy texture and the color was a beige color. It was very creamy but not very thick or thin either. It was just right. It had a shea butter smell to it which I loved. I just love ANYTHING with Shea Butter! The directions stated to apply it to your hair after you shampoo and towel dry it. It stated to leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then wash it out. I decided if I was going to run around the house with this in my hair, I might as well put on a face mask to add to the whole home day spa!
After leaving it on for about 20 minutes (what! I lost track of time eating) I washed it out in my tub. First thing I noticed was the amazing smell it left in my hair. I am crazy about always having great smelling hair. This really did the trick there for me! Now, one thing did happen that I am not sure if it was the hair mask or the fact that I had just dyed my hair one week back; after washing the hair mask out, my hair was hard and difficult to comb through. However with that being said, I know shortly after one dyes their hair, their hair tends to be stiff until a large amount of the hair dye comes out during regular washing. So I did have to put a leave in spray conditioner to get the comb through. However once my hair was air dried enough for me to blow dry; I have no words. My hair literally was shiny, felt thicker, smelled great and my ends looked conditioned. The dryness to my hair was gone and the ends didn't feel brittle.
I honestly plan to continuing using this mask once a week. I am amazed at the results and the state this left my hair in. I had no greasy feeling after and it washed out without any major scrubbing to the scalp. I have no nasty residue left in my hair, just beautiful shiny hair!
I would honestly recommend this hair mask if you are looking for something that comes in a nice large jar, can give you results and don't want to blow the bank.
