I am a chronic hair dye addict, I have been since high school. Dyeing your hair can strip the moisture from your hair something fierce, leaving it dry and brittle. Breakage is something that I have dealt with for as long as I can remember. I am always on the hunt for products that bring a little life back into my hair, so I get excited when I can try something new! Especially something that I fellow blogger created, I have read Phyrra for a long time so I was giddy when she came out with Phyrra’s Pretty Little Elixir! It went up for sale on Futurederm so I immediately ordered!
A miracle moisture mask that will transform chemically treated hair from dry and dull to smooth and sexy? Yep, sign me up! Let’s chat about the scent, it’s fan-freaking-tastic . I am a fan of products that smell like they walked straight out of the salon, there’s something about the scent that makes me feel comfortable. Only certain products can do that! Pretty Little Elixir does it perfectly. It was already making an awesome first impression and I hadn’t even used it, I had high hopes from the jump y’all!
There are two ways of using this baby and I have tried both ways a few times and I like both!
- Apply masque to clean, damp hair, evenly spreading it from the tips to roots using a wide tooth comb. To optimize moisturizing effects, cover your hair with either cling wrap or a hot towel for at least 10 minutes so that the masque can be more easily absorbed.
- If you have extremely dry or frizzy hair, you could leave it on overnight wrapped in a towel. After you have let it sit, gently apply cool water throughout your hair before completely rinsing.
The first way, for 10 minutes, is what I have been doing most often. They suggest doing this once a week for soft, silky hair but I tend to be on the extremely dry side so I like to use masks more often. If I washed my hair more than twice a week I would probably use it more. I think I’ll do it overnight once a month and especially about three days after dying my hair!
I have seriously never had my hair be this soft in forever. I was shocked at how silky it felt, I have tried other masks that claim the same effects and they do enough but never for more than a day or two. The shine, and silkiness you find after using this masque really lasts. A bonus is how fantabulous your hair smells afterwards. When I do it for the 10 minutes, I tie a plastic Walmart bag over my head very tightly and that seems to have the same effect that saran wrap would, I just use what I have closest to me.
My verdict is, if you haven’t already… go get you some! My hair is left feeling amazing especially after dying, smells great, adds shine and leaves you smooth and ready for style! You can grab it from Futurederm where it’s currently on sale for $15.99!
