I’ve recently become crazy about my hair AKA FLUFFY .......... she’s so beautiful . Yes i’m talking about my hair like it’s not mine.

A kind friend of mine gave me this mask as a gift and its the best gift i’ve received in a while #honest. 

L’occitane has to be one of my favourite beauty brands ; they have amazing skin & hair products that I think are worth trying if you want to treat yourself. 

The mask is for dry and damaged hair ; 

its claims  to   

" contains an anti-breakage complex, made with five essential oils (ylang-ylang, sweet orange, lavender, geranium, angelica) and plant-derived amino acids, which help repair the hair fibre. It also captures the richness of shea butter and sweet almond oil in which help to soften and protect.”

And ladies ( & gentlemen) its the truth; the rich creamy mask transforms my forever dry hair to soft  and moisturised goodness. I apply the mask to freshly shampooed hair ; instantly the thick creamy texture glides onto my hair ; making it easy to detangle. I leave the mask in for about an hour even though L’occitane suggests leaving it in for 5-10mins. I then rinse my hair with warm water and follow with leave in conditioner and oil ( coconut oil , argan oil or sheabutter ) depending on my mood. 

Did I mention how shiny and fluffy it leaves my hair. I highly recommend this mask especially if your hair needs help with moisture. 

The only thing that might put some of you off is the £22 price tag for 250ml. Its expensive I know but a little goes a long way this rich silky cream mask. 

I hope you’re all having a good weekend?
