Product Rave: Organic Roots Stimulator Hair Masque
This week's product rave is all about the ORS Olive Oil Hair Masque: Intense Treatment for Heat and Color Damaged Hair!
I got my hair recolored a couple of weeks ago and after the first shampoo, I was experiencing awful dryness! My hair was frizzy, the braid out I attempted to do on it wasn't defined and it felt like straw...ugh!
I did a hot oil treatmeant with coconut and olive oils, shampooed with a sulfate free shampoo, deep conditioned, and all of that; still my hair was dry and it saddened me!
Needless to say, I went on the hunt for an intense deep conditioner and came across this product. I've always been a fan of the ORS line and they usually never let me down. So when I saw the product in the beauty supply store, I just decided to go ahead and buy it...
This hair masque CHANGED MY WHOLE LIFE!!!
I pre-poo'd with coconut oil and decided to shampoo my hair with Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree Special Shampoo. That particular shampoo has sulfates in it, but my hair had A LOT of product in it and I love how clean my hair and scalp feels when I use it!
After I shampooed, that's when I applied the hair masque. It has a very thick consistency and it smells great! Well, to me it does. Some people may think the scent is overwhelming. Anywho...I parted my hair in 4 sections, applied very generous amounts to each section, put a plastic cap on my head, then sat under a heating cap for about 45 minutes. On the jar it suggests to sit under a warm dryer for 10 minutes, but I always choose to leave the product in for much longer than required.
When I rinsed it out...my God, my hair felt like...I don't even know! Y'all it was softer than anything I can verbally describe right now!
When I was applying my leave-in conditioner and styling products, the comb was just gliding through my hair! It was a beautiful thing...boy I tell ya!
When my hair finally dried, the definition was beautiful, it was shiny and soft, and the smell of the product was still in my hair! I loved it!
This product is a definite MUST HAVE! Especially if you use heat a lot or have had a color treatment done. It does warn that you shouldn't use this product daily because it is an intense conditioning treatment and you don't want to over moisturize!
I probably will use this once a month and do my regular deep conditioning treatments in between that time.
This product costed me $11.99 and was worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY! It will now be a staple product in my collection :-)
Have you tried ORS Hair Masque? If so, what are your thoughts on it?
