So a couple of months ago I had a £2.00 off professional haircare voucher from boots which needed using up. After lots of ummh-ing and ahh-ing I decided a hair mask was just what my locks needed and decided to go for the umberto giannini indulgent beauty moisture mask. I can't remember exactly how much it costs in boots but I think it is around £4.99 so was a bargain with my voucher at only £2.99. Boots do these sort of vouchers quite regularly (I think I got the voucher as I had spend more than £5.00 in store) they're always a good excuse to try out something new! :-)
This is described as ''A deep treatment conditioner for dry, damaged hair that indulges the senses''. It is a once a week formulation, which should be applied liberally to damp hair, left for 3 minutes and rinsed off.
Firstly when I got home and opened up the hair mask I was pleased to find that it was packed full of product, theres nothing worse than getting something home and finding it is only half full! I washed and conditioned my hair as normal then applied the hair mask, concentrating on the ends of my hair, clipped my hair up with a crocodile clip and read my book patiently for three minutes as directed :-) When I rinsed the mask off my hair felt sleek and soft, I left it to dry naturally and once my hair was fully dry my ends definately felt softer and less brittle - result!
I have used this product once a week since (normally on a sunday!) it says on the pot that the longer the mask is left on the better so I have been leaving it on for as long as possible! I'm not sure that this product is having any lasting effects on the condition of my hair (time will tell - I will keep you updated!) But my hair is definately softer and sleeker after using it, it is also a lot less tangled which makes combing it alot less painful!
The only other thing is the scent, It smells clean, fresh and crisp which I like but does not leave a lasting scent on the hair. This is something I actually prefer but I know some people (mainly my mum!) prefer hair products which leave a really intense scent afterwards!
Thats all for now, I'm definately going to continue using this hair mask and will probably repurchase too! 4/5 for umberto giannini and a thumbs up!
