I got my haircut over the weekend. While my new stylist was cutting my hair, she asked me “how does your scalp feel?”. Hesitantly, I said fine. What was she getting at? Then she says, “cuz you have a dry patch here”.
Now, she clearly said dry patch. But my brain translated that to bald spot. I pretty much spent the rest of our time together wondering if my hair was starting to fall out. So this week’s mask is one for the hair.
I used to use Aussie’s Three Minute Miracle treatment once a week. I have been severely lacking with that so I wonder if that is why I have this dry patch now (no hair stylist has ever told me I have a dry patch on my scalp before…) Anyway…
I decided that I was going to go back to my routine with the Three Minute Miracle but first I had to do something more intense right away. I didn’t have any masks that specifically target the scalp, so I went with one that was supposed to be “intensely hydrating”. I thought that it would trickle down to my scalp, cuz, you know, I’m putting it all over my head.
I’d bought this one from Walmart (for a $1!) a couple weeks ago. I have other products from this Soo’ae brand that I like so I was pretty confident that this one would be a winner too. Sadly, in this case, you get what you pay for. While other hair masks I’ve bought for a few bucks have been great, this one did not live up to the expectation of “intensely hydrating”.
Usually, my hair feels soft and silky right after a mask. This time, it did not. It really didn’t feel any different. This mask also said it was a detangler. I did notice that part. And the smell was really nice. Also, every mask that comes in a pouch should have the little screw top dispenser like this one. So easy. You win some you lose some. I would recommend spending your $1 on something else. Maybe head over to the Wet n’ Wild or the E.L.F. section.
