Density-protect mask with densiprotect technology that strengthens the hair against damage and reduces breakage. Leaves hair conditioned, manageable and smooth.
This is a great conditioner for thin hair. Doesn't weigh hair down, just softens and smooths. I usually like to try different products, but in this case I'm going to buy again.
I`ve been alternating between Morrocanoil and Kerastase for a couple of years now, but recently Morrocanoil stuff has become hard to come by in Japan, so for the last 2 years or so it`s been only Kerastase. For my hair, alternating products is a good thing, because it can get sensitized and the good results tend to disappear after a while. So I decided to give my hair (and wallet) a rest, and went for this 20 bucks mask from Nioxin. I wasn`t expecting miracles or anything, but I am pleasantly surprised. This mask works just as well as Kerastase, it`s about 10-15 bucks cheaper, and more conveniently packaged (squeeze tube) for travel. I am already on my second tube and I would consider repurchasing to alternate with Kerastase in the future. The smell is all right, nothing special, but not over the top or lingering either. It may seem like a small tube, but even for my long hair I don`t need too much product to evenly coat everything. I plan to experience with some stuff from Alterna next, but I have two tubes of Nioxin as a back up in my bathroom closet.
This is a lovely hair treatment. You don't need much, so the price is quite reasonable too. A tip, if your hair is very damaged and it's difficult to saturate it with conditioner: Apply the hair treatment to your wet hair. Wait a sec, and pop your head back under the flowing water just for a split second. Then massage it to work it into your hair again. This will move the hair conditioner around your hair a bit better.
Well, this is a sleeper product! I too saw the ratings, was looking for a new deep conditioner, and decided to give it a try. I got it at Ulta with a $3.50 off coupon, so it cost less than $15--considerably less than my usual Kerastase Masqueintense. It comes in a tube, which makes it very easy to dispense, and has a clean, slightly citrusy scent. Only a little is needed--I use an amount about the size of a walnut on my short hair--and it's easy to apply and comb through. I covered it with a processing cap and left it on for about a half hour. When I rinsed it out, my hair felt not only thoroughly conditioned, but clean and fresh, not greasy/waxy or weighted down. I was very impressed--I've never used a deep conditioner that left my hair feeling quite this way. I plan to keep it in the shower to use on dry ends when I shampoo, as well as using it as a weekly treatment. Great stuff, and I will repurchase.
I read the reviews on here and decided the 100% rating was worth giving it a go, with my 10% Strawberry Net discount it only cost me $18, and worth every cent. The first use was good, but after the second wash it was even better, I didn't even need my GHD to smooth my hair out beautifully. It gives it the same glossiness and smoothness that a semi-permanent colour gives. The only con to this is that it contains dimethicone which is a bit of an iffy ingredient for me (I'm half expecting to hear it's been definitively found as a cause of cancer, fertility issues, etc any day now) but Nioxin don't test on animals so it's a big tick from me until then.
