I’ve been in Thailand for a week now and my hair’s starting to feel it. Too much sun, sea and heavily chlorinated hotel pool water are starting to take it’s toll so I’m glad I stashed a repairitive hair mask in my suitcase – Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Deep Conditioning Protein Pack. As it’s packaged in a handy sachet it was ideal to travel with.
I’ve dipped into it a few times and have been quite impressed with it. It doesn’t weigh down my baby fine, tangle-prone colour treated hair in the least but leaves it easy to brush while wet and looking healthy and sleek while dry. I also adore it’s subtle, ‘beachy’ coconut scent that smells just like the yummy coconut ice cream I ate last night while strolling through Koh Samui’s red light district with my folks, as you do.
From an ingredients point of view, you’re looking at all the good stuff – hydrolized keratin (protein particles made super small so it can penetrate your hair shaft), moisturising coconut oil, smoothing silicone, a dash of antioxidant vitamin E and even a smidge of softening urea.
It’s not going to bring seriously damaged hair back from the dead, but if you’re looking for a cheap as chips hydrating hair mask that likes to travel, know that this guy’s a goodie.
