My hair goes through a lot of heat-styling, particularly during the work week. It is pretty healthy, but still, like with everyone else, heat styling does take a toll on my hair. I’ve always made it a point to deep condition my hair once a week because of this. Usually I like to use the deep conditioners that Garnier and Aussie have in their lines, but when I went to the store, they were all sold out and hadn’t yet been restocked. So I picked up Neutrogena’s Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask. It’s been around for a while, but I had never ever tried it. Well, there’s a first time for everything, right?
To start, let me just say that it smells absolutely wonderful. And a little bit goes a long way, since it’s a concentrated formula. You’re supposed to apply it to your hair after you’re done shampooing–I did it after using some clarifying shampoo–and leave it in for three to five minutes. The three active ingredients are olive, which is supposed to “penetrate the center” of the hair strand, meadowfoam seed, which “helps mosturize the middle,” and sweet almond, which apparently “wraps the surface.” Regardless of the claims, the stuff works. I’ll admit that right now I do need a trim, but after using this, my ends looked less ragged and my hair was less frizzy. It’s afforable, too–it only cost abut $7.00–and I found that it worked better than the Aussie deep conditioner that I have always sworn by.
So, on a scale of 1 to 5 unicorns, I would give it a 5. For not only its effectiveness, but for its affordability.
So have any of you Persephoneers tried this? If so, what did you think about it?
