Herbal Essences Hair Mask Review

I'm not the one to spend a lot of money on hair products as I am prone to greasy hair (how annoying) and find that a lot of conditioners and shampoo's speed this process up, however ... Since ombre-ing my hair in October, it has needed a little more TLC than normal. I went in search for a hair mask that would re-store its glossiness and shine but not make my roots greasy & came across the Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends 'Split ends' Protective Mask for just £1.85! Seeing it was for split ends, I thought it'd be perfect for my ombre'd ends so popped it into my basket. 


 Along with this, I saw the Deep Nourishing Mask and for the same price I thought it may be worth a try for a deeper treatment for my whole head every so often. 



Now I have used both I can give my true opinion and for anyone that has the same problems with their hair as me ... they're brilliant! 

The split end mask is fab for my ombre'd ends and I use this once a week, leaving on for a good 15 minutes while I have a soak in the bath. I wash my hair like normal (using Loreal Elive) and then apply a good glug of this to the ends of my hair - clip it up and leave it on. I do try and wash it out with clean water too, just so my hair is clean rather than using bath water! It smells really good and although it's a bit like putty, the texture of it is just a thick conditioner, it's just in a pot rather than a bottle! I would definitely recommend this to anyone with ombre'd ends or even anyone prone to split ends like I am too! 


The intensive mask does it's job but because I only use this once every 2 or 3 weeks, I don't have as much to say on it but I have found that it leaves my hair a little greasy the day after - once I wash it again and don't use a conditioner, it's fine! It brings your hair back to life without the use of any products and I feel happy knowing i've restored it's texture once I use this. I use the same sort of method, leave it on for 10-15 minutes then wash off with clean water! Perfect!
