The last time I had seriously long hair was my wedding day. Like many brides, after nothing but growing my hair for the big event I was keen for a change and my past-my-bra-strap hair became a to-my-jawline bob. Now though, I’m on a mission to get my lusciously long locks back!
My sister has been on a similar mission to grow out her amazing ruby red hair for a few years now and she was quick to recommend a product to keep my hair healthy during the process.
Hello Hair Hydrating Masks are natural treatments created to strengthen stressed out hair. Think a fragrant mix of coconut, almond and argan oils. While my hair hasn’t been too badly treated I do get it coloured and am guilty of loving my hair dryer and GHD.
The Hello Hair online store promises the treatment masks leave your hair feeling softer and more manageable so I was keen to give it a try.
Your hair should feel noticeably softer and easier to manage after a couple of treatments. Within 4-6 weeks you should notice your hair feeling stronger, softer and more lustrous.
I decided to try an original Hello Hair Hydrating Mask treatment which just needs to be applied to dry hair and then washed out as you normally would wash your hair. Personally, I found that it worked best when I shampooed twice and then used conditioner, but my hair has a tendency of getting oily around the roots.
This mask includes olive oil, organic coconut oil, argan oil and almond oil as well as olive leaf extract and castor oil and smells amazing and entirely edible (but I promise I didn’t taste test it).
It was so easy to be able to just put it through my dry hair, rather than having to jump in the shower twice, and I used one of the super stylish towel wraps to keep my hair up and off my clothes.
The first time I used the mask, I spent about 30 minutes writing, cooked some dinner and caught up on New Girl before washing it out. The site recommends leaving it in for at least 30 minutes for the best results and over the four times I have treated my hair I averaged about an hour.
The results? It is still early days but my hair definitely feels softer and looks a little more sleek and healthy. The real test will come at my next hair appointment when I find out if I have any split ends, but fingers crossed I can just get my colour touched up and keep these strands growing strong!
