After a summer of sun-filled excursions, my hair was scorched.
As dry as the Gobi Desert, my locks were in serious need of repair.
Thank goodness for Louise Galvin Sacred Locks Treatment Masque for Fine Hair.
Part of Lousie Galvin's stellar carbon neutral, natural ingredients haircare product line bearing her name (Cara Delevingne is a fan!), my tresses get a serious wallop of nourishment and moisture that locks in place.
Leaving out any harmful ingredients such as silicone, sodium lauryl sulphate or propylene glycol, parabens and synthetic polymers, this masque contains key ingredients - including a naturally modified form of honey mixed in with wheat proteins, along with all sorts of nourishing peel oils (grapefruit, lemon and mandarin orange) - and other healing ingredients that both infuse your hair immediately and work to repair it over time.
One ingredient you might not be familiar with is ximenia oil. Also known as seaside plum, it smoothes the hairs cuticle while simultaneously repairing all that damage you've heaped onto it, providing shine and manageability, and resulting in soft and shiny bouncy hair. Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B5) gives your hair back all the moisture it's lost, so your colour lasts longer.
By using natural vegetable proteins, your hair and the environment are spared significant damage. But just because they're green and clean ingredients, doesn't mean it doesn't feel luxurious.
Yes, you get the best of both worlds here. The entire range contains fragrant mandarin oil, which adds an exotic citrus scent that wafts through the air as well as lustre.
The thick white salve is meant to stay on for 10 minutes. If your showers aren't that long, put it on beforehand and then rinse under the powerful spray.
Unlike most masks that you have to glob all over your noggin, it takes just a small amount to cover your whole head (of course those of you with seriously long locks and Rapunzel length hair, you'll need much more than my short mane).
Use it twice a week for regular mane rehab or daily in place of conditioner, should you be in need of more serious intervention.
As the air cools outside and dries inside, this first aid for follicles has got you covered.
You might have had dry hair. But that before Louise Galvin.
