My hair has to be the part of my body I am most proud of. I have always been a huge fan of long, luscious, voluminous hair and although I am very lucky to have been blessed with quite a lot of hair which grows very quickly, the constant application of heat especially on hair which is quite old given its length does make it look dry and unhealthy at times.
I must admit that initially when I didn’t colour my hair I wouldn’t really pay much attention to it and simply condition it and shampoo it, but every since I started applying colour to my air I noticed that it started to look quite limp especially at the ends, so I started applying nourishing and hydrating masks once a week. Although they helped nothing really restored my hair to its former glory until I tried this
After hearing Amelia Liana (if you do not follow her you must she is hilarious and also has some amazing recommendations) rave about this Philip Kingsley mask I decided to give it a go, and OMG it was amazing! She recommended to sleep in it but I can’t really get myself to sleep with damp hair so I would apply it in the morning and leave it on for maybe 3 or 4 hours and I must say that I saw a difference in the first application itself. This mask is specially designed to bring elasticity back to your hair, which very dry and damaged hair looses which explains why it breaks so easily. This mask just gives a boost of hydration to your hair bringing back shine and bounce which I so badly need especially on my ends.
This mask is a little different to others as it is a pre-shampoo treatment so I love to mix it in with my Polinisian Manoi Oil from the Body Shop or some Cocunut Oil as well as some Olaplex which helps to nourish and re-bond my hair. After mixing in all the products I apply a thick layer from mid lengths to ends, sectioning the hair to ensure that every single strand is covered. Once I have covered all my hair in the mixture I take a wide toothed comb and comb the area where I applied the products to make sure its all well distributed and put my hair into a bun and cover with a shower cap for about 3 to 4 hours. Finally I shampoo my hair as normal and apply conditioner.
This mixture has really made a difference to my hair and it now looks a lot shinier, healthier and it also keeps the colour intact longer, as healthy hair works retains colour better.
I hope you give this product a go, please let me know what you think and if you would like a more detailed post or video on my hair care routine and would like to know more about what I do to keep it healthy please let me know in the comments below.
