/ Expert Heat Protection Intensive Conditioner- £2.49 from Boots /
I must admit, I wasn't expecting much. A shops own brand hair mask in the clearance aisle didn't exactly fill me with confidence, but for £1 (yes, £1!), I thought it was worth a shot. I'm so glad I did! I LOVE this product! It contains pro-vitamin B5, antioxidants and a UV filter (I'm not going to pretend that I know the science behind these at all, but they sound good, don't they?) and claims to add strength back to the hair while protecting from heat damage. The consistency is creamy but quite light, not really thick like you might expect from something called 'intense'. I just applied it in the shower after shampooing mainly through the ends but a little at the roots, left it a couple of minutes and rinsed. As I was rinsing it out, my hair already felt so much smoother! I couldn't believe how much more manageable my hair was while blow drying, and I barely needed to use my straighteners at all, just a little to help shape the front of my hair. This is amazing, considering my hair usually needs so much taming with heat and different products! My hair was so much glossier and looked so healthy and hydrated. My colour was much darker and richer, back to how it used to be before I damaged it. I have never had such good results from any hair mask before! I am so impressed, and will definitely be repurchasing.
How are you all? Did any of you do anything special for Valentines day? We had a very quiet but lovely one. I baked brownies, David bought wine, we ordered takeaway and watched Lost In Translation. Perfect!
