Some of you may know that I've been trying my best to take more care with my hair. I have sp much of it that doing just about anything with it is time consuming and annoying but I've started to realise that it's a pretty important part about how I look every day and so I'm doing my best to treat it like the princess it makes me look like (or so I like to imagine). Cue Louise Galvin Sacred Locks Treatment Masque, a cruelty free, paraben free and SLS free brand that had me intrigued to say the least.
I always worry that products that take out things like silicone and synthetic fragrances won't work as well for me - which sounds strange now I'm writing it down but it stands to reason in my mind that they're probably there for a reason. Having said that, I was excited to give this a try and see if it measured up to my usual grabbed-it-at-asda hair products. Safe to say, it not only matched up to them, but rather surpassed them, and definitely secured it's place on my shelf at least for the time being (although I'm so excited about hair products at the moment that it might be a while before I get around to repurchasing something I've already tried!)
Katy and I both used this deluxe sample for about a week and so I'd say that was a pretty good amount of product - and I feel like we used it for long enough to make a solid decision about it. We tend to use a hair mask instead of a conditioner as we both have seriously long, tangly hair and although it helps, it doesn't do much more than a normal conditioner - however, this stuff definitely did, even when I only left it on a few minutes before washing it off my hair, you could definitely tell it was softer and considerably easier to brush through (which seems like a miracle, seriously.) I do have to say the smell is quite old fashioned and doesn't really do it for me, but it doesn't linger so it's not a huge deal.
This isn't cheap - The full pump bottle is around 300ml and, based on my experience and the length of your hair and whatnot, that'll last a single person around 6 weeks; it comes in at around £26. I'm used to hair masks from ASDA and Poundland and so this definitely seems like a steep move - however, I will begrudgingly admit (you all know I'm a sucker for a steal) that this really is worth every penny that you're paying for it - it's one of the only masks that I've used that makes a noticeable difference, plus like I said, the cruelty free, paraben free and SLS free aspect is definitely a bonus. I'd suggest you give it a go if you've got the money, it would definitely be £26 well spent for me. It is one you have to get over the smell of, in my opinion though - so that's worth bearing in mind if you're a big fragrance kind of person.
