Milk_Shake Active Milk Mask £13.69*
This month from Hair.trade.com, one of the UK's leading online retailers of hair extensions, hair care and beauty products I've been trying out Milk_Shake Active Milk Mask. Milk_Shake is a haircare brand which is new to me. I've never heard of Milk_Shake before and it's not a brand I've ever spotted on the highstreet so I was interested to see how well it worked. I'm really fussy when it comes to hair masks/treatments and the majority do little to help my long, thick, over processed hair. One of the things I dislike about hair masks is having to wait 20-30 minutes while a the mask does it's job so the fact Active Milk Mask works in 3-5 minutes definitely appealed to me.
Milk_Shake Active Milk Mask is a rich mask based on milk proteins. It contains rice and avocado oils, Vitamin E and Integrity 41 (a special ingredient to help strengthen the hair). As I mentioned above, my hair is very long (mid back length), thick, curly/wavy and coloured. My mid-lengths and ends are very dry but my roots get greasy very quickly which is why I cant stand products that leave any resdue behind. Active Milk Mask comes in a 200ml pot with an easy to open screw off lid. The texture isn't runny but it isn't overly thick either like I expected it to be since it is designed to deeply nourish and reinforce dry/damaged hair. The scent is lovely, it smells like sweet cream and lingers on the hair all day. After washing my hair I wring out the excess water and apply a generous amount concentrating on my mid-lengths/ends and then skim whatevers left on my hands through the rest of my hair. I don't comb it through, I just clip my hair up and leave it to work it's magic for 5 minutes while I get washed. If my fingers can glide through my hair while I'm rinsing off a hair mask then I know it's good and that's exactly what I was able to do with Active Milk Mask. My hair felt like silk, it was easy to rinse and after straightening my hair felt so soft and stayed that way untill the next wash.
Milk_Shake Active Milk Mask is an impressive hair mask and one I would fully recommend to anyone with hair similar to mine but there is one thing that ruins it all for me - it contains parabens. If you're not bothered about parabens then this won't be a problem for you but I'm finding myself letting more and more paraben packed products into my routine because they just work so well (not the parabens, the products).
Have you tried this mask before?
