I received a full-size jar of Royal Moroccan Hair Mask Treatment so I could check out how it works on my naturally coarse, dry, frizzy mess I call hair. This version is specifically made to provide intensive repair for dry and color treated hair, so I jumped in, well, head first, so to speak.
The first thing I noticed was the high-end packaging with its foiled and embossed details on the box. Once inside the box, I gleefully opened the short, squatty jar to reveal the creamy-to-the-touch mask. The scent was light but appealing and the feel was smooth with a slight slickness, but not greasy. I could feel moisturizing even on my fingertips and once I distributed the dab onto my hands, the cream was absorbed quickly leaving a very delicate luster on the surface.
In researching the label, I found a host of nourishing ingredients. Some of the key components include Shea Butter and JoJoba Seed Oil, which work as conditioning agents and Grape Seed Oil, a natural antioxidant that promotes the production of hair follicle cells. Borage Seed Oil is used for relieving many skin disorders such as eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, and neurodermatitis, and is the richest known source of an essential fatty acid called gamma - linolenic acid (GLA).
We all know the benefits of Olive Oil and are learning quickly about the benefits of essential fatty acids in Sweet Almond and Argan Oil. In addition to naturally occurring antioxidants, Argan nut extract offers carotenoids and contains very high levels of vitamin E, which all improve skin’s overall health and vitality.
One ingredient I was not very familiar with is Dead Sea Water. Obviously it’s water form the Dead Sea, but I had not idea just how healing these waters can be. I doing some research, I came to find out that the Dead Sea area has become a major center for health research and treatment for several reasons. The mineral content of the water, the very low content of pollens and other allergens in the atmosphere, the reduced ultraviolet component of solar radiation, and the higher atmospheric pressure at this great depth have astounding health effects.
Excited to see how the Royal Moroccan Hair Mask Treatment would do on my hair, I shampooed as usual, towel-blotted and then slathered on a fair amount of the mask, combing it through to help distribute the product. It sat for about 5 minutes, as per the instructions, and then was rinsed out.
The results were really quite pleasing: soft, nourished and touchable hair sans the frizz ball I am accustomed to and the light scent stayed with me all day. If you deal with dry, unmanageable tresses as I do, definitely give this little gem a try!
