The Body Shop Shea Butter Richly Replenishing Hair Mask

If you follow me on Instagram ( which you should for mixed bag of different things), you might know that I had received some PR items from The Body Shop's Shea Butter range. Honestly, I take my time  I use the products for a long time or use it frequently enough before I dish out the reviews.

I was more delighted about the hair products because needless to say, these days, more than makeup,
I am dabbling with hair care products. Yes, you may have seen my post on hair before. I was hoping to try something that would deeply condition my hair. Naturally, I had high expectations.

Price: 285 ml for INR 1545.

I have used The Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner and also used the hair pack with conjunction with other shampoos. The results with the Shea Butter shampoo was not extraordinary.

It's a thick very creamy mask and does smell beautifully of shea butter which is mild and pleasant.

However, coming to the mask. I have used it in a constant streak. After getting out of the pool, I would shampoo my hair and then leave the mask on for about 7-10 minutes and then wash off.

Result: On days when I have been able to leave it on longer, it has yielded better result. But given it is priced so high , I was expecting more.

I know my demands from products are high and it does go higher if something comes for an exorbitant amount. On average, I have not been extremely impressed. It did not really smoothen or soften my hair much. Neither did it condition it the way I had hoped.

I have used half-way through to give it enough time before the review and no, I have not noticed any significant improvement with time either. May be I would do a follow up post on products I have been using for a long time ( almost till the verge of finishing up).

Do I recommend? No. The mask which comes for 1545 INR is not cheap and has not really lived up to my expectation. I was hoping to give something extra to my dry hair. but it did not make the cut.

PR sample. Honest review.
