Hey guys! So, you’ll have to bear with me with this post because I am not very good at talking about hair products – if you guys have ready any of my Birchbox posts then you’ll know that hair products are my least favourite products in the beauty industry. I just never know how to use them, they never seem to have much effect. I just really don’t see the point of them.
So, I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before on my blog but for the past six months or so, I’ve struggled with scalp psoriasis. It has been a royal pain in my backside and I really don’t know what’s suddenly brought it on. I thought perhaps that it was stress or the shampoo I was using or something I was eating. I’ve tried everything and it hasn’t changed so I was really struggling with it. It wasn’t just little flakes like dandruff, it was full on patches of psoriasis that were moving down onto my forehead. I was getting really self-conscious about it and didn’t know what to do. Then I saw an advert for a hair mask – something which I had never really thought of before – so I went down to my local supermarket and bought the Tresemme Restructuring Deep Conditioning Hair Mask. I’ve used the shampoos before and really liked it. But the price is what really drew me to it – it’s £2.69 at Superdrug!
The formula itself smells absolutely amazing. My mum can always tell when I use it because I smell so good. The consistency is like a quite thick conditioner. To apply the hair mask, you have to wait until you’ve washed your hair and then apply it all over your hair. Then wait for 3-5 minutes and rinse it thoroughly. You get quite a lot of product – I’ve been using it since May once to twice a week and I haven’t run out yet.
So, what does it do? Well, first off – it makes your hair super super smooth. It sorted out all of my dead ends – bear in mind that I hadn’t been to the hairdressers and had a trim since last year – and it looked like someone had completely sorted out my hair. I was so obsessed with the finish and honestly, I think it’s changed how long I can go without washing my hair. Normally, I would have to use dry shampoo the day after I’ve washed my hair but with this mask, I can go three days without using dry shampoo. This means that I can literally wash my hair every five days which has done wonders as I hate washing my hair.
And for the psoriasis? It’s certainly not got rid of it but it has made it so much better. It’s been more noticeable recently but I think it’s because I’ve been a bit stressed. But it has decreased it so much – I can’t see the patches anymore. I’m not a doctor, I don’t know what to recommend for other cases- I’m just sharing my experience and what has worked for me.
Overall, if you have the same problems as me then you might consider trying this hair mask. It’s not pricey, it works well and you don’t have to use it all that often to get a result.
