As my quest for perfect long blonde hair continues, I thought it was about time I started using a regular intensive mask. I routinely have highlights put into my hair, adding this with all the heat from hairdryers and such means that my hair is becoming dry at the ends. However I still have greasy roots which means I have to wash it every day otherwise it will look lank and generally gross. I have tried dry shampoos instead of washing everyday but they don’t work for me and I just feel manky without my daily shampoo & condition. Having combination hair can be a bit of a nightmare so I have to pick carefully when choosing an intensive treatment.
I really was not sure where to start so I asked my hairdresser what product to try and she suggested the Label M Intensive Mask. I think this was around £12 but it does last a while, I have used it 1-2 times a week for a month now and I am not even half way through the tub yet. As this contains shea butter the smell is gorgeous, it’s the kind of smell you would get from a Bodyshop body butter and after you have used it you will occasionally get wafts of it throughout the day.
I usually apply around two 50p sizes this half way down my hair to the tips avoiding the roots and I really massage it in to make sure it is thoroughly covered. The directions are to leave on for three minutes, which I do if using this in the shower, but if I am having a bath I will leave it in until I get out of the bath. I personally prefer to leave it in longer as I have found the results to be better.
It is easy to wash out too, in the past I have found some masks to be too rich and have found it difficult to rinse all of the product out and in turn left the hair greasy.
Over all thoughts:
Lovely smell which stays on the hair
Easy to apply & rinse
Did not make any improvements/changes in regards to hair colour
Left hair soft & manageable
A good weekly conditioner but I would not say this was an intensive mask
Would I buy again? As a conditioner – yes, but as an intensive mask treatment – No
