HASK | Mint Almond Oil line
Hask is a brand I've recently come to love. You may recall my review of their Keratin line, which I adored! Well, they recently sent me one of their other lines, the Mint Almond Oil line. Minty shampoos and almond-y things are my favorite, so needless to say I was excited to try these out.
This line has three components: the Thickening Shampoo, the Thickening Conditioner and the Root Thickening Spray. For reference, I wouldn't say my hair is thin by any means, but I definitely wouldn't mind added thickness to my locks. Each one of these products has three key benefits for hair - it restores volume, invigorates and fortifies.
The aim of this line is to breathe some life in to limp hair, and boost volume and thickness in the process. It's formulated with Hask's Bio3 Thickening Complex to leave you with hair that looks full and voluminous.
I really enjoyed using the shampoo and conditioner ($5.99 each). It has peppermint oil in it which feels tingly and pleasant. I didn't feel the tingle so much with the shampoo, but as I let the conditioner work it's magic and I soaped off in the shower, I could feel the tingle as my hair rested on my back. I love that feeling! This would be a refreshing duo to use in the summer time as it has that cooling effect.
This shampoo and conditioner were really enjoyable to use. My hair felt soft and it did give me a little extra boost to my limp hair. Nothing over the top, but I know my hair requires a miracle to hold any volume.
The Root Thickening Spray is something I need to keep experimenting with. You're meant to spray this in damp hair, focusing on your roots. Blowdrying is said to produce the best results. You can also spray it in dry hair for an added boost.
Unfortunately, this spray didn't do much for me. I tried it on damp, blowdryed hair and I tried it on dry hair and I just didn't notice any extra lift. I'll keep giving this a try, but not sure if it's the miracle limpness cure for me.
This line seems to be tough to find online. Ulta doesn't carry it online anymore, and you can't purchase it online at Walgreens but supposedly you can in stores. You can find the shampoo and conditioner on drugstore.com, FYI. Look around - this is a really nice line and I'd definitely recommend giving the shampoo and conditioner a try!
