I’ve got quite thick, unruly hair that endures a daily battle of trying to wilfully curl despite my savage attacks with straighteners. I don’t always win. But, try as I did over the summer to go into straightener re-hab and wean myself off the hot irons, I’ve now found they’re merging back into my daily routine. I was sent a pot of Jo Hansford Intensive Mask to try and much as I go eek at the price (£25) this stuff really does work. After applying post-shampoo, I left it on for a couple of minutes (although can never busy myself enough in the shower for two long minutes so have to get out) expecting the usual ‘takes an hour to rinse out properly’ effect that hefty hair masks usually have. Well, this one rinsed away in moments and genuinely left my hair feeling ultra-soft. It’s too soon to say whether it will have any long term effects on the health of my hair, but the mix of Keratin and Castahana de Brasil (an Amazonian ingredient that nourishes the cortex of the hair shaft) certainly felt repairing and boosting.
