Product Review – Karen’s Body Beautiful Hair Mask

12 Apr

 

Hello Readers:  Keep in mind that I no longer update this site, the new updated blog can be found at www.uneautrenaturelle.com.  Thank you!

Back in February I had a wonderful opportunity  to visit the Karen’s Body Beautiful store in Brooklyn, NY.  Shortly after that, I started this blog, so this first product review is actually another Hallmark for me.  Before I begin, I think it’s important to let you know my hair type – I’m what people would categorize as type 3c/4a combination.  You will not hear this type thing again – because I really hate the typing system, but I guess it’s important when discussing the results of a hair product.  Let’s begin:

Website Product Details:

The Luscious Locks Hair Mask is a wonderfully nutritious conditioning treatment that you can use as often as your hair needs it.

Conditioning doesn’t get deeper than this because everything you need for your hair is in this jar.  Detangle, soften, strengthen, grow.  Saturate your strands with this rich blend of herbs like shikakai and rosemary which are known to promote hair growth, arnica and nettle to strengthen your hair follicles and aloe for much-needed moisture.  It is called Luscious Locks for a reason.

Product Directions:

Use it after you shampoo instead of your regular conditioner. Coat your hair from root to tip and leave it in for 20 minutes.  If you can apply heat that’s a great way for the nutrients, herbs and other ingredients to penetrate your hair and scalp really well.  Gently rinse and style as usual.

My Experience

I used this product four times before writing this review.  I must admit, I fell in love with this product from the first application.  This deep conditioner does exactly what it says it will do:  detangle, soften, strengthen.  Each time I used this deep conditioner, I utilized it a little differently. The first time I left it in my hair with a plastic cap for a few hours (no heat applied).  The second time, I was in a rush, so I left it in for 20 minutes but went under the drier for those 20 minutes.  The third time, I left it in my hair for about an hour plus an additional 20 minutes under the drier.  And this very last time, I left it in my hair overnight.  I found that the product worked wonders every time regardless of how long it stayed in my hair.  I did find the deep conditioning a little more effective when I used it with heat.

What does it look like?

This hair mask is white in color, unscented (very light herb scent), and has a thick creamy consistency.  A little goes a long way, which is good since this product cost $25.

What does it really do?

This conditioner provided a lot of slip with just a little product.  Once I applied this to my freshly washed hair, I was easily able to detangle with very little hair shedding – basically excellent slip factor.  The conditioner washed out very easily, regardless of how long the product stayed in my hair.  Once the product was rinsed out, my hair was super soft and moisturized.  Another plus was that my hair was still clean; have you ever used a conditioner and no matter how many times you rinsed your hair it still felt weighed down?  Well this conditioner doesn’t do that.

Any cons?

Honestly, I felt that there were no cons with this product.  My only issue (which is a rather silly one) is the fact that the packaging / jar has no directions on how to use it.  When I went to the store, Karen explained how I should use this product, but to be honest, I forgot what she told me.  It would have been nice to have that written somewhere on the jar.

Rating?

This product is AMAZING!  $25 well spent!  My rating, three naps and a curl! So, go out and buy this product yesterday.

Disclaimer:  I am not a hairstylist or beautician.  I bought this product on my own, and these are my opinions.

    I absolutely love KBB products. I have done product reviews and referenced her line in my blog. Sadly, I have not had the opportunity to visit her store (location), but will the next time I’m in NY. Great post

    I’m looking for a great deep conditioner and sometimes am overwhelmed by the many choices out there. I make it a point to stay away from any product with alcohol and noticed that there isn’t any alcohol in this product. I will give it a try! Thanks for sharing.
