I have been keeping busy since 2 weeks and missed out on my blog posting schedule. Sorry. 😦 😦 But that also meant I got more time to test out the samples sent to me by Juicy chemistry. I am left with only the cleanser,now that I am doing the review on hair masque. 🙂
The hair masque is perfect for those days when you want to pamper your tresses who have gone through lot of pollution,sweat,sun damage,chemical treatment or simply weather change,monsoon being the worst time of the year.Luckily,I had undergone smoothing treatment on my hair 2 months back,so my hair is under my control even during this monsoon season.Goodbye to the frizz! 😛
Smoothing makes your hair smooth 😛 but also causes problems like dandruff,hair fall or split ends if proper care isn’t taken.Usually,all the salons want you to go for their hairspas and discourage the use of any other stuff apart from using their Loreal,Wella or Matrix shampoo range.I did my own research and found that it’s their money making policy.Getting monthly hair-spas from them will cost you a bomb. :-O And this is where I found a saviour,in the form of this hair masque sent to me by the Juicy chemistry team.
Price & quantity: INR 650 for 75 g.Now,honestly,you need only a little of this,because it is very thick and heavy.For my medium length hair,I need 2-3 tsps of the product.This will last you atleast 3-4 months depending on the usage(assuming half monthly usage).I use it monthly so may last longer. 🙂
Ingredients: Mango butter,coffee infused almond oil,argan oil,vit E,Castor oil,beeswax,cedarwood essential oil,rosemary essential oil,peppermint essential oil,Lavender essential oil & german chamomile essential oil. They don’t have any chemicals and preservatives.
Packaging: Plastic transparent tub with a screwed lid.When you open it,it has additional cover to prevent spillage.The tub is sturdy and travel-friendly.The tub has the logo on the top and on its side,you will see the usual details about the product.
Fragrance: Strong peppermint smell.I find it refreshing actually.But if you have a sneezy nose,God be with you. 😛
Texture: Offwhite color.It is thick and buttery.Almost like a body butter ,except its hair butter. 😛
Availability: Right now,they are taking orders through whatsapp(+91-96556 63566) and facebook page.Here’s the link.They do ship worldwide.Shipping charges are extra.For Indians,it is 100 INR shipping.You can consult them and opt for products based on your concerns on whatsapp or you can choose from the brochure on their facebook page.
My views: Chemical treatment renders your hair dull and dry after a long time.So I decided to use this hair masque.As told by them,I applied the hair masque.waited for 20 mins and used my Loreal x-tenso shampoo.I found my hair smooth,detangled and the ends showed less signs of split ends.On my normal hair,I didn’t feel the need to add the conditioner.Also,my hair smelled strongly of peppermint which I like.
However,if you have oily hair,I would say,mild shampoo may not work for you,because this is very buttery thick.It might need 2 washes if you are using mild shampoos.
Dry hair people can rejoice,because after using it,you will notice that your hair is weighed down a little.Also frizz will be less.
It claims to remove dandruff and hair fall,but I don’t have such issues,so can’t comment on it.But usually herbal products take time to show their results. 🙂
Now girls like me who have chemically treated hair,I am sure your salons have told you not to use hair masks as it will open the smoothing or curling etc. There is no proof to this but if you are so scared,you can apply on the ends where split ends usually occur.It actually ‘mends’ them or makes them less visible.
Overall verdict is go for it,if you are suffering from dull,frizzy lifeless hair.It will add the shine and moisture back to your hair.For more details,see the pictures below. 🙂
