My hair is naturally curly, but I normally straighten twice a year at a salon to keep it manageable. On a day to day basis, I don’t touch iron-curlers or straighteners, I don’t have the time. 😦 In addition, due to its fine texture, my hair gets tangled really easily, making hair treatments and conditioners a necessity.
Right now, all of my favorite hair care products are Japanese brands. And this hair mask is my long-time favorite! The mask is said to be formulated with royal jelly EX to moisturize, PCA (para-chloroamphetamine) to strengthen, and Lipidure EX to repair. Like all of my favorites, it does exactly what it claims!
After washing hair, I normally press dry with a towel, apply this and leave on for 5 minutes. Even when I wash it off immediately, after less than a minute, the softening effect is a lot better than any conditioner I have used before. It just makes my hair smooth and tangle free. I also have heard of people getting good results with this on chemically damaged and regularly dyed hair.
If you’re wish to try some Japanese hair care products, I doubt you can go wrong with this. You can find this on Rakuten (here).
The ingredients list below I typed out myself. There are other sets of lists on the internet, but they’re different from those on the product that I own, I don’t know if there is reformulation between batches, so if the ingredients list is important to you, do a little more research first!
