Paul Mitchell Marula Oil Intense Hair Masque Review
In the age of ombre, balayage, mermaid and unicorn hair, all beautiful trends and transformation that require bleach and harsh lightening, our hair is inevitably going to need some TLC from time to time. There are many hair masques available on the market, but I wanted to talk to you about the Paul Mitchell Marula Oil Intense Hair Masque* - we are familiar with coconut oil and argan oil which have been dominating shelves of Boots and Superdrug for years, but what is marula oil?
Marula oil is an ancient moisturising oil which has been used by women in South Africa and Mozambique for absolute ages. The oil is extracted from the nuts of the Marula tree and has been traditionally used in cosmetics (amongst many other things like preserving meat, and also in cooking) - the oil is cold pressed to preserve its exceptional quality and nutrients. Paul Mitchell Rare Oil hair care contains the purest oil of high quality, with 50% more protective antioxidants than Argan oil (according to Paul Mitchells website). The high concentration of nutrients and oleic acids help hydrate, repair and moisturise hair at the deepest levels - now we all know this sounds like a dream for dry and damaged hair!
I have previously reviewed the shampoo and conditioner, and pure oil treatment from the same Paul Mitchell Marula Oil range - my feelings were mixed. I enjoyed using the oils which made my hair soft, however the shampoo and conditioner made my hair limp and greasy - read my reviews for the whole lowdown.
The Marula Oil Hair Masque hydrates, smooths and softens dry hair. The masque works with a time release MarulaSpheres which adhere to the hair shaft and whenever you brush of touch your hair they break open, releasing elements of marula throughout the day - pretty cool right? In addition, the masque is also packed with antioxidants, oleic acids, protein and vitamins which protect your hair and keep it nourished.
I use the Marula Oil Hair Masque as a truly occasional treat especially on weeks when it's been styled with heat which damages hair and my split ends go crazy! Especially as for years I have had ombre and now balayage in my hair, so the ends need special attention as they tend to go dry from the bleach.
After washing my hair, I take a generous scoop of the masque and massage into my hair. Leave it in for about 15-25 minutes, and rinse thoroughly. The masque works best when you blow dry your hair after - I find letting it dry naturally can make hair a little limp and weighted.
Like I mentioned, this masque is definitely an occasional treat for the hair and when used so can make your hair shiny, smooth and soft!
