Winter can prove to be pretty ruthless when it comes to hair health.
Cold temperatures and hair just don’t really blend, and so, hair tends to get a little crispy around January.
It does for me, living in Canada, anyways.
So, I tend to use hair masks a little more often during the winter than I do in the summer months, and the L’oreal Paris Total Repair hair mask has not let me down.
This mask claims to boost hair’s strength, density, vitality, shine and silkiness, and from what I can tell, its claims are true. As of late, I’ve been using the mask instead of hair conditioner, and I find my hair feels significantly softer and looks much healthier when I allow the mask to sit in my hair for roughly five minutes prior to rinsing it out.
The formula contains Pro-Keratin and Cicamide, as well as microfillers, which apparently seal breaches of hair strands to repair damage. The cicamide penetrates hair fibres, microfills every crack and re-surfaces it, and helps re-create hair’s natural defense barrier to keep hair protected, the website description says.
Some people prefer to apply conditioning treatments only to the ends of hair, rather than the roots as well, but I slather this stuff all over my head. From root to tip, this mask has my hair looking like a golden waterfall, and you don’t need a lot of product to coat your mane. I use a quarter-sized dollop and it covers all of my hair (for reference, my hair touches my butt).
I absolutely recommend this mask to anyone who suffers from dry, brittle hair when the temperatures drop. It’s super affordable and can be found at most drugstores, it smells good, and a little goes a long way. It’s a triple win situation, and I think your locks will feel the love.
