Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Intensive Mask : Review

Lately i feel like my hair hasn’t been at 100%, probably due to me dying my hair and this dull, dreary winter weather! Normally my hair is silky and shiny, but sometimes the ends just need a little TLC and i am naughty with heat appliances (although i have cut down my straightener usage) so split ends become noticeable quickly. Enter the Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Split End Protection Intensive Mask. This 200 ml tub retails for between £ 3-4. and can be easily found in Boots, Superdrug and many supermarkets. In Superdrug at the moment it can be found for better than half price for an amazing price of £1.95!

 I’ve been wanting a nice intensive mask, and whilst in Boots the other day i picked up the Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Split End Protection Intensive Mask for dry/damaged hair. I have in the past tried out the shampoo/conditioner from this range and i really enjoyed using those and the gorgeous scent, as the beautiful ends range feature red raspberry and silk extracts! I love the scent of raspberry, so this mask was right up my alley. Although i found this was a very similar formula to the conditioner in the range, just marginally thicker, whether this is a bad thing, probably not, just something i picked up on.

Just a note, the tub doesn’t state how much of the product to apply, so i was a little cautious at first as i didn’t want to apply too much and have seriously greasy hair! I managed to use a fairly decent amount though and greasiness didn’t happen, so just see how it goes and with longer hair use a bit more. After shampooing i simply massaged this into my hair from root to tip, giving extra attention to the tips, and then left in my hair for 5 minutes and rinsed out. Afterwards my hair was so easy to comb, so so so soft and frizz free and my split ends were in fact reduced. Impressive! I understand this doesn’t offer an actual long-term solution to split ends, but it covers them up perfectly for a short period of time and made my hair feel nourished and pampered and it wasn’t weighed down at all.

I love using this now as part of my weekly routine on a night at the weekend as it is a lovely pamper and makes me feel ready for the week ahead!
