I’ve spoken before about my dry wavy/curly hair type, so it’s no surprise that my eyes light up at the mention of moisture boosting hair treatments! It’s only in the past year or so that I’ve been really paying attention to what my hair needs, religiously using conditioning hair masques at least once a week to keep my hair hydrated and minimise damage.
The latest product I’ve incorporated into my routine is the Yarok Feed Your Moisture Conditioning Masque*. I’ve loved the other hair products I’ve tried from Yarok before (reviews here and here) and they’re a brand I love to support since they donate a percentage of their profits to help protect the Amazon Rainforest. I had high hopes for this conditioning hair masque as it’s said to be particularly effective for wavy, curly or colour-treated hair and contains some fantastic ingredients, including organic Coco Crème, Aloe Vera Gel and Wild Harvested Seaweed Extract. (Full ingredients list here.)
A lot of the hair treatments I use are applied when the hair is dry and left on for a certain amount of time before shampoo/conditioning as usual, however this one is a little different as you use it on towel-dried hair after your usual conditioner, leave on for anywhere between 3-15 minutes then rinse. Before I go on, you just have to check out the colour of this masque…
Not quite what you expect to see inside this white tub right?! I would have been totally surprised if I hadn’t read a few reviews beforehand! It has quite strong herbal scent which personally isn’t my cup of tea – I’m terrible at describing aromas but if you’re keen on kind of spicy or woody blends then I think this one would be for you!
I find this masque works better the longer you leave it on. When I tried just 3-4 minutes it just wasn’t enough for my super dry hair, but 10-15 minutes seems to work much better for me. I find that it doesn’t banish the frizz (no surprises there though, I have Feed Your Ends for that anyway!) but it leaves my hair feeling a lot softer, free of tangles and adds shine too.
A 4oz/118ml tub comes quite pricey at £59 from abeautifulworld, although I think this will last a good 3-4 months with weekly use. I wish my nose appreciated the scent a little more because, based on performance, I would probably be tempted to repurchase otherwise – who knows, perhaps the scent will grow on me! Even so, I still wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hair masque to anyone with a larger budget needing a moisturising boost and the rest of Yarok’s haircare range is definitely worth checking out too!
