percy & reed totally tlc hydrating mask


Oh look another hair product! It seems I just harbour these types of products too!
 Masks, oils, leave in treatments, I've got them.

This was a magazine freebie and I've pretty much finished it now, but I thought I would tell you my views on it.I gotta admit that I do really like this , whether I repurchase this or not I don't know, as it's £20 for 175ml. This is only a sample size, and is in a tube rather than the 175ml being in one of those tubs you scoop out with your fingers. It's a high end product and can be found in Selfridges, SpaceNK, Harvey Nichols, and selected online stockists and salons. The packaging is cute, a lot of people aren't keen on it, 
but I think it's really stylish and cute.

The scent is so nice, it's one of those ones where it's like ahhhhh I don't want to wash it off my hair it's that nice. I think it smells like the tresseme shampoos and conditioners. 
Though, it doesn't smell like coconut and marshmallow as it states on the tube. Which is pretty sad, because who wouldn't want a marshmallow scented hair mask!!The product is an easy one to apply, it's not like some of the hair masks I have which are so thick in texture and consistency where it takes foreeeeever, this is thin but the right amount, and is easy to massage all over your hair! It absorbs straight into your hair too which is just great, might make you look like you've got greasy hair for a bit but that's okay!

The bottle suggests you to apply from roots to your ends, wrap hair in a towel and leave for 10 minutes. I don't do that. I did on first application, but then I saw that it wasn't really working, and decided to leave it longer, up to an hour, sometimes I leave it on overnight if my hair needs that extra tlc, and let's be honest my hair does! I've found that this way, I get a better result from the product, though it may not work for everyone, but for me I like it. So after I've left it on for an hour or overnight, I rinse and shampoo as normal, sometimes I condition sometimes I don't, I just go by how my hair feels from the mask.

I have been using this for a while now, and like I said its good, but I like change, and I like to mix things up constantly. I'm forever using this or the James Brown Intensive Moisture Mask, as they're pretty much the same product. I just don't think this one is worth £20. You can get much cheaper alternatives, one that will do exactly the same as this. You've just gotta shop around, find one that suits you, and you don't always have to follow the instructions, if you find what works right for you and your hair that's great!

Please tell me your favourite hair masks? I'm intrigued and I 
want to have some new ones to look at!

Much love

  1. I love this hydrating mask. I thought my hair was super soft and glossy afterwards. I do think it is expensive though, but a lovely nice treat. Great post x
