Hair Mask Confessions

Hair Mask Confessions

So I have more than 4 jars of hair mask.

I know I know – seems excessive but sometimes I get them when they are on sale – there’s no secret that I wanted to try all of the MONAT hair treatment masques so I bought them all. That’s the first confession.

My next confession is that I’ve owned these masques for over 6 months and got totally stuck in my way as a creature of habit loving on the Super Moisture Masque as my all time favourite go to hair masque. What does this mean for all the other jars of masque??? Well,,, Replenish is another one of my hot faves – The Heavenly Hydrating Masque is a whole different story – I reviewed that one not long ago because, well, it was definitely my least favourite. You can let me know if you thought I was a bit harsh in that review.

Little did I know, that the only jar that I hadn’t opened was going to give me the biggest surprise of all!

Hair Transformation Masque. WOW.

Don’t muck around with the name of it or anything – Hair Transformation Masque. Well. Telling it like it is MONAT – as usual

Let it be known I felt totally extravegant as I tore the plastic off the product. So fabulous this wrapping. Such a well packaged product. I love the care this company takes to make the whole experience special. Anyway – who do I think I am – 4 jars of masque open at one time – these jars are like a bottomless pit – there’s no sign that any of them are getting low on product – what am I thinking opening another one???,,,,,

Well I’m thinking of myself – clearly! Besides the fact I JUST TURNED 40 (don’t mean to shout – neither of us are going deaf or anything but I can’t believe it – 40 WTAF) anyhoo – clearly 40 is a good enough excuse to open the masque right??? Right.

As if I needed any more reasons but I can find plenty of them – queen of reasons (hehe – I get it from my mom)

Here’s a few more reasons to open a 4th jar or hair mask within 6 months

  1. I’ve been swimming in chlorine 2 days in a row – need a new masque
  2. My hair was a horror story before it met MONAT – it transformed soooo much in such a short time – ready for my next transformation
  3. The jar says ‘HAIR TRANSFORMATION’ ..sooooooooo – who isn’t ready for that?
  4. Opening more product means I’m getting extra product knowledge (of course!)
  5. I just turned 40
  6. I just turned 40

See,? Plenty of reasons to open the fancy box and I did. As soon as I pierced the plastic I was already sniffing the little hole to see if I could catch the scent. Would I need ibuprofen before I applied it (no joke – read my review about one of the other masques) I’m convinced someone slipped with the fragrance when they were preparing the heavenly hydrating masque.

This particular masque is part of the Restructuring System so I was already wondering if it would smell like the restructuring serum (don’t be using too much of that serum at once – little bit goes a long way) needless to say I couldn’t wait to get my fingers into it so I open the har and the consistency is like creamy marshmallow dreams. Oh my. I slide my fingers in and it is opaque and creamy. The creamiest of them all.

“An intensive, ultra-rich reparative hair masque that fixes breakage, strengthens, softens and transforms the look of damaged, brittle, over-processed hair within minutes”

Why did it take me so long

I don’t know the answer to that. On one hand I thought I was being extravagant – ¬†on another hand I was worried it would smell too strong for me and therefor not get used enough to make it worth opening a 4th jar of hair mask (lol)

Turns out it was worth it. I put it in my freshly washed hair and I’m going to leave it in for a few hours while I write a few more posts and catch up with clients online. I’m loving it so far. The smell is fresh and clean – not overpowering (I’m sensitive) I’m expecting some great results!

Expectations are dangerous

Yes they are. I agree. I already know by experience that every single product I have tried from this company has it’s positive qualities (whether I can stand the smell or not) they are all good. Some are weird so I’m probably using them wrong – but they are all good. Something I find is the label always tells it like it is and the product actually does what it says it’s going to do.

Hair Transformation Masque leaves no surprises except that it can actually transform dry crunchy hair to feel soft and touchable. It works for me.

Which mask do you like best? I have some replenish samples if you want to try it.
