Every so often I overly focus on one thing about my appearance and end up trying all the products in order to make it better. Sometimes it's wrinkles, sometimes it's skin tone, but most of the time it's hair.
Mine seems to have stopped growing and alas, it's malting. So rather than shoving a tonne of dry shampoo in it and hoping for the best, I reckoned it was time to give in and coat it in as much treatment as possible - is "reckoned" a word?
So I was asked by Just My Look if I wanted to try a product and instead of giving in to my incessant need to fake tan I took heed of my new found life choice and pondered over their hair treatments before going for the Tigi Bed Head Resurrection Mask. The Tigi masks are graded 1-3, with three being the most intensive and claiming to breathe "life into locks that are on the brink". Not sure if my barnet is on the brink of anything, but like anyone who can't stay away from styling products, it's certainly frazzled and dry.
The directions for this are pretty vague, I quote, "Spread between hands and apply from mid lengths to ends. Leave for 3-5 minutes then rinse."
Wet or dry hair? Between shampoo and conditioner or after? Instead of conditioner? Who knows. Throwing all hair caution to the wind I decided to use this after shampooing, and here's where I go really wild, it gets left on for a whole half hour. Sometimes 40 minutes if there's an episode of homeland on. It smells really nice though, and the longer you leave it on the longer the smell lingers around.
So has it rescued my hair from the brink? It's certainly made it softer and taken away the sticky out frizz parts. Time will tell in terms of growth - the ingredients tell me there's only one silicone tucked away in there (dimethicone) so buildup shouldn't be a problem and it shouldn't just be a "quick fix" product.
