I love reviewing new beauty products which is why I am so glad that I received this product for review.
CLAIROL Hair Food Moisturizing Hair Mask
It’s been a while since we have seen the folks at Clairol do much more than hair color. It’s nice to see the folks that do so much for color help us find a way to take care of what we are coloring.
This is a “Moisturizing Hair Mask” which I am thinking differs from a deep conditioned in that a deep conditioner’s instructions tell you to keep it on hair hair for a certain amount of time before rinsing. This product just tells us to comb it through your hair and rinse (font size about 4…).
To be honest, I think that Clairol may be underrating this product or developed it as some kind of an after thought.
They don’t seem to be advertising it and I was unable to find it on their website. Target says that this product
“is inspired by pampering and relaxing ingredients known to hydrate and condition the hair. ; Uniquely infused with honey and apricot fragrance. ; A luxurious treat for your hair. ; Moisture Hair Mask provides rich moisture protection for smooth, manageable hair. ; Paraben Free ; Mineral Oil Free.”
Note the key words- “Paraben Free ; Mineral Oil Free.”
To beauty junkies this can be a good thing as these are the items that are a big deal. Paraben is a kind of preservative that many think may be linked to issues such as breast cancer. Mineral oil is just a cheep additive that lesser products may have and you don’t really need to pay extra for.
Getting back to the underrated thing…
When I first squeezed this out of the container I was not impressed as it seemed thinner than I would have expected. There were no directions as to how much to use so I kind of winged it. My hair is naturally wavy/with some curl and naturally blond every 6-8 weeks meaning I need special attention especially on these muggy days of summer.
I must say that I was very impressed with the results.
My hair really did come out smooth. I especially liked that my hair felt light, as in not weighted down by this. The smell was pretty nice as well.
This is a beauty score from the folks at Target for around $11. Says Target:
The buzz: Hair Food’s Apricot Moisturizing Hair Mask penetrates deep to tame your driest strands.
The details: When hair feels more like straw than silk, it’s time to find an ultra-hydrating treatment. We turn to Hair Food’s Apricot Moisturizing Hair Mask to get hair shining again. This Target-exclusive hydrating cream evenly coats hair to smooth the hair cuticle. Apply a dime- sized amount of this cream to damp locks, paying special attention to the tips where most damage occurs. Let the mask sit for five minutes while you shave your legs or do a body scrub and then rinse out thoroughly with warm water. We love the way the honey and apricot fragrance stays with us for the rest of the day, too.
The pro tip: Honey transforms dry skin, too. Mix equal parts honey, avocado, and Greek yogurt together and apply to your skin as a mask. Let it sit for five minutes, then rinse away for natural radiance.
