As the weather gets colder I always notice that my hair starts to get drier and if I'm not careful can become a little bit dreadlocky (techical terms here guys) and so I become a little bit obessed with hair masks. The ones that I tend to go for are either the Aussie versions or one of the Herbal Essences range, mainly because I'm on a budget but also because they are pretty great and after trying all of their masks except this one, I decided it was time to give it a go. Of all the different Herbal Essences specific ranges, I've always said that my favourite has to be the Hello Hydration range, however I don't know how I could have honestly made this statement before now as I hadn't tried one key product, The Deep Nourishing Intensive Mask. Now that I have, It's official, this is my Favourite Herbal Essences Range.
To start off with it has the same gorgeous scent as the shampoo and conditioner, which if you have used it then you know what I mean and if you haven't you seriously need to! All of the HE products smell amazing but the Hello Hydration range is particularly incredible. You know those old adverts where the women are going crazy and your just sat there like 'Really? Who gets that excited over shampoo?' but I actually understand it now because If I could figure out a way to smell like this at all times, I would, they need to start making shower gels and body lotions etc. I'd buy them. It claims to smell of coconut and Hawaiian orchid and there is a faint hint of coconut there but I find that the floral scent is slightly overpowering.
The scent aside, In my opinion, it is actually a very good conditioning mask, especially for how inexpensive it is. I tend to use this as well as a conditioner purely because that's what I do with all masks as my hair can get very dry due to all the bleaching and leave it on for ten minutes whilst I carry on with my shower. After I wash it off my hair is left feeling soft and smooth but without the feeling of there still being product in my hair which is something that I find happens with a lot of moisture boosting products. If I leave my hair to dry naturally then i'm left with soft waves and my hair still has volume at the roots but I do find that my ends are not as smooth as I would like them to be. I get the best results from this product if I blow dry my hair as I end up with smooth hair that looks like it is in great condition, which I'm happy to say isn't far from how my hair actually is due to me upping my hair mask game over the past few months.
If your looking for a great but inexpensive hair mask to hydrate your hair over the coming cold months then this is a lovely product and at only £4.39 it's a bit of a bargain. I picked mine up in Boots but it seems to come and go there so your best bet is one of the supermarkets as I find that Asda and Tesco always have a better Herbal Essences selection than either Boots or Superdrug.
Have you tried this or any of the other Herbal Essences Masks? What are your thoughts?
