Hask Keratin Smoothing Hair Care Collection
If you ever peruse the hair aisles at Walmart, Ulta or Sally Beauty, chances are you've heard of Hask before. They have a few different hair lines targeted to specific needs, and recently I was sent the Keratin Protein line aimed at smoothing and softening the hair. If you're snooty about hair care and only like top-end brands, I'd recommend you give Hask a shot despite the super affordable pricing. These budget-friendly hair products perform extremely well and I think you'll be impressed.
This line is free of: sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors. All of these products are infused with keratin, which reduces frizz and blocks humidity.
The first thing to mention is that everything in this line smells amazing, and the smell very lightly lingers throughout the first part of my day. The shampoo and conditioner (5.99 for 12 oz) alone are a very nice combo - after using my hair felt soft and looked shiny and healthy. I really enjoyed using both of these products.
I also tried out the Keratin Protein Smoothing Shine Oil ($2.99 for 5/8 oz). After washing and conditioning my hair, I put a dime sized drop of this in the ends of my hair (from my ears down) and then proceeded to style with a blow dryer. Initially, I was worried this product would weigh my hair down or force me to wash my hair the next day - but I worried for nothing. This is a light weight oil that adds shine and softness without making your hair greasy. I would advise avoiding your roots, or you may end up looking like a greaseball.
Lastly, I put the Keratin Protein Smoothing Deep Conditioner ($2.99 for 1.75 oz) to the test. This packet will get me 2-3 uses - it's got a lot of product in this little pouch. This product is marketed towards those with very dry, over-processed hair. Because I'm lazy and rarely do anything to my hair, that's not really a problem I deal with, however I like to use an intense deep conditioner about once a week. The blend of ingredients in this product repairs damage, reduces breakage and helps to reduce static and drying time. I really enjoyed using it. It made my hair soft and smell great. It's not the strongest deep conditioner I've ever used, but I did like it regardless.
You can find the whole Hask range at Ulta, for a super affordable price!
