What it is: A hair masque from the brand Nexxus featuring a “protein fusion” formula to nourish, smooth and moisturize strands.
The single-use masque packet boasts key ingredients including elastin protein and green caviar to rehydrate hair and leave it feeling soft and conditioned.
The masque, which is billed as being the perfect salve for dry, damaged hair, is meant to be applied to the mid-to-end lengths of strands and left on for three to five minutes before being rinsed.
What we say: Our tester tried this masque on her platinum locks, shortly after a highlighting treatment. So, to put it lightly, her hair needed the love.
With one use, she reported her hair was “super soft”. The thick cream has a pleasant (if a bit heavy) scent and was easy to massage/distribute through wet strands post-shampooing. Left on for the full five minutes, it was easy to rinse and didn’t have a heavy, residue feeling like some hydrating masques.
Even on fine hair, the formula hydrated and smoothed but didn’t weigh it down. While our tester admits to emptying the full packet in one treatment, those who don’t need as intense a moisture moment may be able to squeeze two treatments out of one.
