I've never been too fussy about my haircare routine, I would use any shampoo and conditioner that did the job and left my hair shiny. However, my hair has grown quite a lot in the past few months and the ends have been feeling (and looking...) very dry - my hair's overall appearance was very dull and boring. I've tried intensive repair masks which have left my hair glossy and nourished just after washing it and feeling even drier and heavy the next day. At The Amazing Blog we came across the skin and hair brand Mashooq and decided to give their Deep Penetrating Oil Treatment a try - I've come to the conclusion that you don't know what a deeply nourished and silky hair is until you apply a quality hair oil to it. Mashooq products are the result of an exquisite blend of natural oils including coconut, olive, palm, whet germ, almond and sunflower which are full of vitamins and minerals to nourish and protect the hair and skin. Mashooq Deep Penetrating Oil Treatment can be used on two different ways: it can be used as a soak for 10 to 20 minutes before shampooing to strengthen the hair and adding a gorgeous shine - just wrap the oiled hair in a hot towel or cover it with a shower cap while soaking in the bath. You can also apply the Penetrating Oil Treatment before harsh treatments such as bleaching, colouring, perming or relaxing to protect the hair from damage. My favourite my way to use this oil is applying it before going to bed, leaving it in the whole night and shampooing as you would the next morning.
We also had the chance to try their Moisturising Hair Serum, that applied to dry hair gets rid of the frizziness and adds nice sheen. The packaging of the Mashooq products is convenieny, ideal for travelling and easy to store too.
