In all honesty, I’ve never cared too much for my hair. I always had really healthy, silky hair up until my late teens when I started doing a lot more to it (i.e. dyeing it, straightening it etc). Now I’m in my early 20s and I have slowly come to realise the devastation the chemicals caused all those years.
The Toni & Guy Nourish Reconstruction Mask was the first product that I picked up a couple of months ago from the local Woolworths in an attempt to salvage my damaged locks.
Did it work?
As with most drugstore hair conditioners/hair masks this one made my hair feel smooth when massaged into the ends.
After using it once a week for about a month, my hair started looking a lot healthier even though I knew it was mostly all those silicones listed in the ingredient list.
Honestly, this isn’t a product to be using in the long run because the product will compound in your hair and I found that I needed to wash my hair a lot more frequently because of this.
Did it smell?
Being a scent-type of girl when it comes to beauty products, this one didn’t do much for me either. Using a sizable portion of the mask at a time, the scent does get a little overwhelming especially when you’re standing in a steaming shower with nowhere to escape. It smells of the ginger, earl grey tea and pink pepper but to an extreme degree.
This product started off pretty well, but then it went downhill as the buildup in my hair got worse. I’ve since switched to Lush’s hair care products that aren’t necessarily 100% all natural, but works much better at nourishing my hair.
