The last item from my August parcel from My Pure was a hair product - the A'kin Ginkgo & Jojoba Intensive Moisture Vitamin Masque. I know I've been reviewing a lot of hair products recently but hair products really are my weakness, ever since school I've mucked around with my hair, colour, heat tools and dare I say it perm solution, I do look after me hair but ever so often particularly after some colour it needs an extra boost, by using a product such as this.
As you'll probably know if you read my blog regularly A'kin is an Australian brand which prides itself on its use of organic ingredients, and the the lack of chemicals such as sulfates and parabens in all their products. This hair masque is typical of an A'kin product containing natural extracts of Jojoba, and Avocado for moisture, Ginkgo Biloba and White Tea for strength and health, and Geranium and Sandalwood for aroma and sensory pleasure
The hair mask comes packaged in a dark green squeezy tube. It squeezes out easily and has a thick creamy texture. It smells quite strongly but pleasantly of Geranium essential oil which does tend to linger on the hair.
To use the product I washed my hair as instructed and towel dried it before applying the mask to my hair. Despite it being quick thick it spread easily on my hair. I then stuck a shower cap on and then I had a bath, after about 20 minutes or so (you can leave it on overnight) I rinsed it out. It rinsed out really easily leaving my hair clean and without any tangles. After drying my hair felt super, super soft, my only complaint is it probably left my hair too soft and a little difficult to style, but this is just a minor complaint, this is a great mask that leaves the hair in fabulous condition, it is a real must for dry and thirsty hair. The A'kin Ginkgo & Jojoba Intensive Moisture Vitamin Masque retails at around £7.49 for 150ml from My Pure
