From scalp scrubs to overnight masks, countless products on the market promise to revitalize your mane. But how many actually get the job done?
While my balayaged tresses certainly crave hydration, many moisturizing treatments tend to weigh my fine strands down. Heavy creams and conditioners leave my mane feeling slightly over-oiled, despite light application and numerous rinses. But this week, I tried out beauty’s latest thirst-quenching trend: skincare giant ESPA’s Pink Hair and Scalp Mud. Formulated with watercress and red clay, this buttery concoction is an absolute dream come true when it comes to maintaining mane moisture.
Read on for my honest review of this strand-saving conditioning treatment.
The texture is to die for
This product is whipped to perfection and packaged with care. The creamy conditioner has the ideal consistency: light, rich, and smooth. Less like mud and more like cocoa butter for your tresses. The pastel pink formula is neatly folded into a gorgeous frosted glass jar, for a sophisticated aesthetic you’ll want to display on your bathroom counter.
Bring the spa experience to your own home
This luxurious mask sets the standard for all future mane muds. With notes of apricot and vanilla, this nourishing treatment has a uniquely soothing scent that envelopes each strand as you massage the mask from root to tip. ESPA’s Pink Hair and Scalp Mud is less of a traditional treatment and more of a trip to the spa in the comfort of your own home. Ideal for these socially distanced times.
A little goes a long way
There’s no need to go overboard with this hydrating hair mask. A little more than a dollop, just enough to cover the palm of my hand, is all I needed to saturate my shorter strands. The application was super simple: I started by working the product into my scalp and smoothed the excess mud all the way down to my ends. Those with longer locks or severe dryness may need to indulge in a little extra to get the job done. While there’s no harm in over-saturation, this miraculous mud is so luxurious you’ll want to savor every last drop.
Moisture, body, and shine galore
The results are in: ESPA’s Pink Hair and Scalp Mud is my new favorite deep conditioner! A single quick 20 minute leave-in treatment totally transformed my scraggly strands. The best part? There’s no need for excessive rinsing and double-shampooing to remove excess product. My tresses absorbed this mighty mud with ease. Just a quick rinse and a single shampoo should do the trick. ESPA’s groundbreaking hair mud left my mane soft, shiny, and sleek. No frizz or flyaways in sight! Not only did this deep conditioner improve my overall hair health, it also added a bit of body and bounce once dry. A double win.
If you’re struggling with a classic case of ultra dry hair this fall, ESPA’s Pink Hair and Scalp Mud is the solution you’ve been waiting for!
