I did the ever-so unique dip dye on my hair in September. I know everyone has it these days but I still love it (the good ones that is). Anyhoo, with getting your hair dip dyed comes a lot of dry ends that need a lot of TLC.
I got my hair done at Mario’s in Green Point and (for those who don’t know him) he really is the best. It does come at a bit of a price but dying your hair is not something I advise being budget on – like these Groupon deals for dyed hair make me squirm inside!
On my recent trip to London I stayed with one of my best friends who had been harping on about Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizing Pre Shampoo Treatment for ages – so much so that she even messaged me before I arrived saying she wants to try it out on my hair as she knows I will fall in love. Anyway, with all the wine drinking and catching up we ended up forgetting about the beloved hair mask, but luckily I got a tube when I got home and have been trialling it for the past few weeks.
This is one of the cult products from this hair care range and I can totally see why. It transforms limp, lifeless hair into naturally healthy I’ve-never-dyed-my-hair-before kind of hair. I found with other hair masks that my hair would feel full of hydration and look great for a day or two and then fall back to its same ways, but this really changed the texture of my hair and, through its top class ingredients, really solved a problem rather than superficially coating the hair cuticle for a few days.
Application is a bit tedious like all other masks and should be done pre-shampooing your hair. I applied the mask with a thick comb brush and worked the mask through thoroughly, I then let in sink in for 20-30 minutes (depending on how much house work I feel like doing while the mask soaks in). You then continue with your usual shampooing and conditioning routine and, viola, your hair will look and feel incredible.
