good mask

Posted by 5lanvianvil on Sep 27, 2015 | Verified Purchase

First of all, I have to say that it smells heavenly, like chocolate. The texture is thick, however the slip is great and it is a safe choice to detangle hair without silicones or ammonium salts (cetrimonium chloride, stearalkonium chloride…), phthalates, synthetic fragrances, mineral oils or artificial colors. The composition is good: there is a huge list of nourishing and moisturizing ingredients such as cocoa seed butter, shea butter, cupuaçu butter (theobroma grandiflorum butter), jojoba oil, evening primrose oil etc (despite it has alcohol or phenoxyethanol, they are at the end of the list, so there is no a big amount of these ingredients). My hair is very curly, very dry but protein sensitive, and this is a protein treatment (hydrolyzed soy protein), so I use it once or twice a month (another plus: a little goes a long way). This mask leaves my hair soft, silky and tangle free. Probably, I will buy it again.

Thanks for your feedback!

Absolutely amazing!

Posted by 5lanvianvil on Nov 28, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I’m so happy with this product. My hair is extremely dry, curly, long, protein sensitive and highlighted, but this one works absolutely amazing: detangles well and easily (good slip), provides a slight cooling effect on the scalp, reduces frizz and a little goes a long way. The only negative point for me is the fact that it is a protein treatment. Texture is thick, but slippery and easily spreadable; smells good (like mint with a hint of chocolate: in my case, this smell is a bonus because I really like mint in hair products) and has one of the safest compositions I’ve ever seen. After using it, my hair is really hydrated, soft and manageable. In my opinion, this is a “must have” for curly hair, give it a try!!!Estoy muy feliz con este producto: tengo el pelo muy seco, rizado, largo, sensible a las proteínas y con mechas, pero este tratamiento funciona estupendamente: desenreda muy bien y fácilmente, tiene un ligero efecto frío en el cuero cabelludo, atenúa el frizz y una pequeña cantidad cunde mucho. El único punto negativo en mi caso es que es rico en proteínas. La textura es espesa, pero fácil de extender y muy resbaladiza, huele bien (a menta con un toque de chocolate, y a mí me encanta el olor mentolado en productos capilares) además de tener una de las mejores composiciones que he visto. Después de usarlo, el pelo queda muy hidratado, suave y manejable. En mi opinión es un imprescindible para pelo rizado, ¡pruébalo!

Excellent balm!, a little bit goes a long way!

Posted by 5lanvianvil on Dec 27, 2016 | Verified Purchase

I use this product as a foot balm (or to restore my dry hands) because it is deeply moisturizing and provides a restorative effect. This balm has a yellow color and a thick/greasy consistency (which means that is a good choice to get rid of rough/dry skin on elbows, heels etc). Moreover, I like the fact that it smells like wintergreen (unlike a lot of foot care products, this one doesn’t smell minty) and works really well. All natural, amazing composition (that contains nourishing/moisturizing ingredients, such as shea butter, arnica extract, cajeput oil, sweet almond oil, etc). The moisturizing effect is long-lasting and clearly noticeable. I recommend it.

Thanks for your feedback!

safe and effective

Posted by 5lanvianvil on Mar 28, 2016 | Verified Purchase

This product is very effective against odor, has safe ingredients and a masculine/woody scent that makes it very suitable for men. However the application is difficult, I should have bought the jar for easier application. Tip: use very sparingly (If you apply too much, it will leave big white marks on your clothes…)

Another STAPLE PRODUCT for curly, dry, tangled hair!!. I ended up falling in love with it!!

Posted by 5lanvianvil on Aug 31, 2015 | Verified Purchase

This product was a great surprise for me. I have long, very dry, very curly, protein sensitive and highlighted hair that tangles extremely easy so I need moisturizing products that help in my detangling process. This leave-in works really good: detangles, repairs, softens, moisturizes, reduces frizz and facilitates hair styling. I’m impressed: my hair feels EXTREMELY SILKY AND COMPLETELY DETANGLED when I use this product. I like the composition: it has MOISTURIZING CUPUAÇU BUTTER but no silicones, no phthalates, no phenoxyethanol, no PEGs, no parabens, no artificial colors or fragrances, no alcohol…; but, above all, the most important fact for me is THE LACK OF COCONUT OIL OR HUGE AMOUNTS OF PROTEIN (ingredients that leave my hair tangled and dry, so I HATE and avoid both of them). However, there is a small amount of rice protein (I don’t mind, this product is very effective despite this ingredient) and benzyl alcohol (its hazard is 5 according to EWG, so I give it only 4 stars because benzyl alcohol isn’t at the end of the ingredient list; but, if I take into account its efficacy despite benzyl alcohol I would give it 100 stars). I love the consistency: “medium” texture but very “effective” and creamy (not too watery or too thick, I hate extremely runny or extremely thick textures difficult to spread…), so a little goes a long way. The scent is light and pleasant due to ylang ylang (cananga odorata) essential oil: sometimes you can feel clearly its floral and exotic smell. I prefer this very moisturizing leave-in instead of knot today (one of my favorite products in the past) which detangles very good but unfortunately dries my hair if I use it for a long period of time. Definitely, I would recommend this fantastic product for protein sensitive, curly, dry hair and for summer time. Thanks for shipping us this amazing product (there are a lot of countries like mine where natural as well as effective products are very difficult to find).

FINALLY, A HAIR MASK WITHOUT SOY PROTEIN OR COCONUT OIL THAT REALLY WORKS!!!!!

Posted by 5lanvianvil on Aug 18, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I have long, very dry, very curly, protein sensitive and highlighted hair that tangles extremely easy so I need moisturizing products that help in my detangling process (which are very difficult to find, even more the natural ones without silicones, coconut oil or lots of proteins). In my opinion, this awesome and useful hair mask is a “must have” for everyone with my hair type and works really good: it detangles, repairs, softens, moisturizes, reduces frizz and facilitates hair styling. Its composition is amazing: it HAS MOISTURIZING CUPUAÇU BUTTER but no silicones, no phthalates, no phenoxyethanol, no PEGs, no parabens, no artificial colors or fragrances, no alcohol…; but, above all, the most important fact for me is THE LACK OF COCONUT OIL OR HIGH AMOUNTS OF SOY PROTEIN (ingredients that leave my hair tangled and dry, so I HATE). However, it has a small amount of rice protein (I don’t mind, mask is very effective despite this ingredient) and benzyl alcohol (its hazard is 5 according to EWG, so I give it 4 stars because benzyl alcohol isn’t at the end of the ingredient list). I love the consistency: its texture is “medium” but very “effective” and creamy (not too light or too thick, I hate runny or extremely thick textures difficult to spread…), so a little goes a long way. The scent is light and pleasant due to ylang ylang (cananga odorata) essential oil: sometimes you can feel clearly its floral and exotic smell. Definitely, I would recommend this fantastic mask for protein sensitive, curly, dry hair and for summer time when hair is worst. Thanks for shipping us this amazing product (there are a lot of countries like mine where natural as well as effective products with good price are very difficult to find). Tengo el pelo largo, muy rizado, muy seco, con mechas y sensible a las proteínas por lo que necesito productos que hidraten y faciliten el desenredado (que son difíciles de encontrar, especialmente si son naturales y sin silicona, aceite de coco o grandes cantidades de proteína como la de soja, etc). Creo que esta asombrosa mascarilla es imprescindible para cualquiera que tenga mi tipo de pelo, es realmente efectiva: desenreda, repara, suaviza, hidrata, atenúa el frizz y facilita el peinado. Su composición es fantástica ya que CONTIENE MANTECA DE CUPUAÇU pero no contiene siliconas, ftalatos, fenoxietanol, PEGs, parabenos, colorantes o fragancias sintéticas, alcohol…; pero lo más importante para mí es que CARECE DE ACEITE DE COCO O ENORMES CANTIDADES DE PROTEÍNA DE SOJA (estos ingredientes me dejan el pelo reseco y muy enredado, por ello los odio y los evito). Sin embargo, la mascarilla tiene una pequeña cantidad de proteína de arroz (es igualmente efectiva y no me importa) y alcohol bencílico (por eso le doy únicamente 4 estrellas, el alcohol bencílico tiene un riesgo de 5 según EWG y no está al final de la lista de de ingredientes como me gustaría…). Me encanta la consistencia, que es media, muy “efectiva” y cremosa (no demasiado ligera o acuosa ni muy compacta o espesa, odio esas texturas acuosas o bien muy gruesas difíciles de extender…) por lo que una pequeña cantidad cunde mucho. El olor es ligero pero agradable, debido a la presencia de aceite esencial de ylang ylang (cananga odorata): a veces puedes percibir claramente su aroma floral y exótico. Definitivamente, recomendaría está fantástica mascarilla para pelo sensible a las proteínas, seco y rizado o para el verano que es cuando el pelo está más dañado. Gracias por enviarnos estos increíbles productos (hay muchos países como el mío por ejemplo dónde es muy difícil conseguir productos naturales así como efectivos a buen precio).

Thanks for your feedback!

muy buen producto

Posted by 5lanvianvil on Mar 23, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Al comprarlo pensé que sería más o menos del montón, pero me he llevado una grata sorpresa. Tengo mucho pelo, seco, muy rizado y que se enreda muy, muy fácilmente; por lo que siempre suelo usar mucha cantidad de productos acondicionadores y emplear mucho tiempo para acomodar mínimamente el pelo. Este producto es distinto, cunde mucho y solo se necesita una pequeña cantidad, tiene un poder desenredante excepcional (mucho mayor que productos cargados de siliconas), no tiene un olor muy fuerte, desliza bien, no reseca, no apelmaza...; además, al ser tan efectivo, se ahorra tiempo y acabas con el pelo enseguida. Ha sido todo un acierto que volveré a comprar seguro.

Another great conditioner from desert essence!. I like this brand very much!!!

Posted by 5lanvianvil on Sep 19, 2015 | Verified Purchase

First of all, I HAVE TO SAY THAT IT SMELLS HEAVENLY, LIKE LEMON ICE CREAM!!!, due to natural ingredients such as lemon peel oil and extract!!! (as a general rule, I don’t like citrusy smells, this one is an exception). It is a lightweight conditioner that provides decent and useful slip, ideal for my hair (tangled, long, very dry, very curly, highlighted and protein sensitive) due to its “medium” and easily spreadable texture (not watery or very thick): from my point of view, conditioners with this kind of texture are the best detanglers; on the contrary, thick conditioners difficult to spread or rich in protein are not suitable for me. Good composition without high amounts of protein (proteins leave my hair dry and tangled), silicones, parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, alcohol, artificial colors, artificial fragrances, PEGs or EDTA…, although there are some ingredients that I don’t like such as benzyl alcohol (hazard 5 according to EWG, is a known allergen that may be toxic), citral (hazard 7 according to EWG, that is to say, high hazard!!!, which is classified as an allergen or irritant too) and limonene (hazard 6 according to EWG, is another irritant or allergen which degrades to harmful oxidation products when it is exposed to sunlight). Fortunately, these ingredients are at the end of the list (small amounts). This conditioner may lighten color treated hair and I like this fact, because my hair is highlighted and this is a safe way to make my color lighter. It does its job: leaves my hair soft and moisturized without oily residues or a plastic layer (like silicone loaded conditioners do), so I switch my hair masks/heavy conditioners and this lemon one to prevent build up.

Thanks for your feedback!

it works for me / me funciona

Posted by 5lanvianvil on Jun 08, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I've been using this conditioner for one week and I have to say that it really works: is a good detangler, pleasant frity smell (not overpowering like synthetic fragances), good composition without silicones (although behentrimonium methosulfate is the third ingredient is safer than behentrimonium chloride). In addition, it is a good moisturizer and leaves my hair soft. Above all, I love the fact that it isn't very rich in protein (protein treatments don't work for me). Definitely, I would recommend it for dry, curly, protein sensitive or damaged hair. Lo llevo usando una semana y tengo que decir que me funciona: buen desenredante, olor frutal agradable (sin ser muy fuerte como ocurre con las fragancias sintéticas), buena composición sin siliconas (aunque behentrimonium methosulfate es el tercer ingrediente es menos nocivo que behentrimonium chloride). Además hidrata bastante y deja el pelo suave. Ante todo me gusta que no tiene exceso de proteínas (los tratamientos con mucha proteína no me dan resultado). En definitiva lo recomendaría para pelo seco, rizado, sensible a las proteínas o dañado.

isn't a good hair detangler, so isn't suitable for me

Posted by 5lanvianvil on Oct 24, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Positive points: overall, the composition is good with nourishing oils and butters. I really like mint in personal care products and this one has a lovely minty, fresh scent. Moreover, it provides a pleasant cooling effect on the scalp. However, there are negative points: the mask doesn’t help in my detangling process and the slip is bad. During my first use, my hair was tangled, sticky and I noticed an oily sensation. As a result, I was unable to detangle with my wide tooth comb, so I ended up finger-detangling. Surprisingly, after rinsing it out, the hair was moisturized. In my opinion, this product isn’t suitable for those with curly/dry/knotted hair (like mine) and it might be too heavy for those with fine/oily hair. I’ve tried a lot of natural hair products and this one is not the best. I won’t buy it again!!.
