[unpaid/sample/ad/affiliate] Oh, the smell of this mask (and the shampoo) is just delicious. It reminds me of sun cream for some reason – a kind of tropical, creamy scent with a soapy backdrop. It makes me want to nestle under a palm tree (I wish!).

We’re all probably having a few hair woes at the moment but this formula is really for hair that’s gone dull, dry or faded after dyeing. I’ve done two home dyes during lock down (both Josh Wood – HERE – simple as anything and so pleased with the results). What makes it a little different to other colour protectors is the acidity level which (apparently) closes the hair cuticle to hang on the colour for longer.

It’s glossy and unctuous but rinses out quickly and easily. If your hair is at straw stage, keep it on either longer than recommended or overnight. Using as the main player, camu camu, which is said to have 40 times more vitamin C than an orange, combined with macadamia (and Abyssinia seed oil or Crambe, depending on what you want to call it) the conditioner will bring your swish back if anything can. It’s a bit of foresighted purchase because if hairdressers open on July 4th, the one thing (after the weight has gone) we will all want is a colour top up and to hang onto it as long as possible.

I like the smell (a lot), the result (which is softer, more shiny hair although admittedly more so at just-dyed than at desperate-for-dye stage) and the weightless feel after drying. It’s expensive at £33 (10% off on the link), shampoo £29, but you only need a small amount (with the shampoo you need the same amount as any other shampoo) massaged through lengths and left for 3-5 minutes before rinsing.
