Salon Science Hydrasorb Intensive Masque AquaCacteen Review

I am prone to getting an itchy scalp at times so I usually like trying hair masks to soothe it. I saw this mask and found it interesting since you use it inbetween shampoo and conditioner, whereas usually I find you’re meant to apply a mask pre wash or after conditioning. I have not heard of this brand prior to this purchase so I just bought the mask, but the range comes with a Shampoo and Conditioner too.

Kiehl’s Sunflower Color Preserving Deep Recovery Pak

Lately my hair has been especially dry, this is probably made worse by the cold windy weather so I felt like I needed some treatment to revive my hair back to health. I came across a hair mask from Kiehl’s called Sunflower Color Preserving Deep Recovery Pak which I bought while on holiday in New York but is thankfully available here in the UK aswell. The mask is a good size and contains lots of lovely things like Antioxidant Rich Sunflower, Apricot Oils and Vitamins B3, B5 and B6. It is also silicone and paraben free.

I do colour my hair occasionally so I feel like the shine has consequently reduced. This mask claims to help provide a boost of healthy shine and vibrancy and repair chemically processed hair. I brushed my hair to remove knots and tangles and applied the mask directly to my hair while it was dry. The texture was like a lightweight cream so felt really nice and was easy to apply as it was smooth, as oppose to sticky or oily like some masks tend to be. The smell was really refreshing and sweet which was because of the apricot oils I’m assuming since it has a fruity fragrance. The lady at the Kiehl’s counter told me the longer I leave it on the more effective it will be on my hair so I left it on for about 15/20 minutes.
It was really easy to rinse out and my hair was tangle free and smooth. After drying my hair I was so impressed with how much healthier my hair felt. It looked healthy and vibrant just as the product claimed. My hair has not looked this shiny in such a long time and I could really tell that this mask contained nourishing ingredients as my hair felt so refreshed and repaired from damage of colouring and styling.
The mask is priced at £27 but it really works so it’s genuinely worth the price. Also the tub is a good size so the product will last a long time especially since it only needs to be used once a week. So if your hair needs some tlc then this is the product to restore your hair back to health!

Oily Hair Solution- Neutrogena T/Gel Shampoo Greasy Hair

My hair is quite thick in texture naturally but the problem I have is that it tends to get greasy quickly. It is also a really long length, so it’s tiresome washing it daily. I needed to find a solution and I heard about T/Gel shampoo from Neutrogena before but this time I came across one specifically for greasy hair.

I was expecting a strong medicated smell but it was pleasantly mild which was good, and after washing the shampoo off it did not leave a strong scent. I was concerned my hair would be knotted and tangled but the shampoo left my hair feeling soft and tangle free. I found I did not need to use conditioner which is a positive since conditioner tends to weigh my hair down and my hair was grease free. The shampoo is a great solution for greasy hair as my hair felt clean and fresh after use and I no longer need to wash my hair daily. 

Neutrogena T/Gel Shampoo Greasy Hair is priced at £6.99 and is available in store at Boots
