Dark and Lovely

Yes, I know what you're thinking, being completely Pale and Awesome I am the furthest thing away from 'Dark and Lovely'. So why did I buy this conditioning mask specially formulated for Afro Caribbean hair?Well, 1: It was mega cheap, costing a mere £1.83 2: It's for very damaged and brittle hair and after not going to the hairdresser for 2 years that be what I haves, and 3: I was intrigued. 

Inside the container we have a toxic yellow gooey conditioning mask, it smells OK. Not great, not disgusting, just OK. It's a rather runny formula for a conditioning mask, but nothing I can't handle. You leave it on damp hair after shampooing for 3-5 minutes or 5-7 minutes depending on how thirsty your hair is. I've been applying it only to the ends of my hair quite liberally, after a few goes at using it I have decided this is the best way, as all over and too much, it can be over kill and leave your hair a bit lank and lifeless. It's quite possibly the best thing my hair has seen in a while. It instantly smooths split ends, my hair is light and fluffy but not too fluffy, and it's very shiny. I've tried a variety of conditioners and treatments in the past but I can categorically say that non have provided such instant and good results. Not even that Macadamia stuff people keep harping on about. If your hair is in desperate need of a drink then you are in desperate need of this in your life.

  3. I'm sure I've come across this in Tesco?? I was rather intrigued, but when it said Afro-Carribean hair I decided against it, thinking it may not be any good for mine.

    I may give it a go now though...
