Herbal Essences Split End Protection

Sunday, 1 September 2013

Hi there!

I often find my hair can get split ends quite quickly as I use straighteners quite a bit. So I did a bit of searching and found these products from Herbal Essences.

First I am going to start with the Split End Protection Intensive Mask! This product is designed for dry or damaged hair,  to protect and defend your hair against damage and make it feel “voluptuously velvety”.

How to use:

Now I would write my own ‘How to’ but I love the way that Herbal Essences have worded it on the tub so much I’m just going to copy it out! You’ll notice it’s written in the first person as though it is the product telling you how to use it. I don’t know why but this makes me like the product even more!

First pamper your hair with Beautiful Ends shampoo. (This is optional any shampoo will do!) Then lavish me from root to tip, giving extra attention to those tips. Leave me to luxuriate for up to 5 minutes, then rinse me away. Let me give your hair the VIP treatment once a week.”

My Experience

For some people they may think that a hair mask will make their hair go solid just like a face mask would – it doesn't. This product is literally a more intense conditioner, it gives the same texture as a normal conditioner but with such a better result, I really feel the difference after I use it! And it smells great too!

The next product is the Split End Protection Cream, which is designed to be your hair’s bodyguard against split ends and breakages.

How to use:
Again, I am going to copy it off of the bottle because I love it!
Lavish me through to your tips to give your hair the daily special treatment. Don’t rinse out – just put me on towel-dried or dry hair and I’ll keep loving your locks and help protecting your tips all day long”.

My Experience

From using this product for quite a while now I have discovered that if I put this product on my hair when it is too dry it makes it feel thick and gloopy – like when you forget to wash out a bit of conditioner. However, on wet (not soaking) hair it works really well! It has definitely helped to reduce the amount of split ends I get between haircuts.

If your hair is particularly damaged and in need of rescuing, I would recommend getting both of these products as well as the Beautiful Ends Shampoo and Conditioner.
