In my quest for great hair masks, I often come across products that simply do not work for my hair type. This is especially heartbreaking when I have high hopes from the mask to begin with due to its great ingredients list. One such recent hair mask disappointment for me was The Beauty Co Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Mask. Before you invest your money in this product, make sure to read this review!
The reason I gravitated towards The Beauty Co Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Mask was the impressive ingredient list. It contains a number of ingredients with nourishing and reparative properties such as Almond Oil, Glycerin, Apple Cider Vinegar and Vitamin E. The mask also contains silicones, but I personally do not mind silicones as they often help to reduce the frizz that my hair suffers from. The mask has a thick and creamy texture and a pleasant smell. You need to apply it on damp shampooed hair and leave it on for 15 minutes before rinsing it off. In the tub, it looks like something that would be quite nourishing, but my experience was quite the opposite.
The Beauty Co Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Mask comes with tall claims that sounded perfect for my rough, frizzy hair. It claims to repair dry, dull and damaged hair and make them smooth and shiny. It also claims to protect the hair from environmental damage and heat styling. Last but not the least, it also claims to strengthen the hair cuticle and reduce hairfall caused by breakage. All of this makes it sound like a perfect hair mask for winters when my hair gets extra dry, rough and frizzy. Add to it the fact that I haven’t been getting any hair spas done this year, this hair mask sounded like exactly what I needed. Unfortunately, it did not live up to its claims.
My Experience With The Beauty Co Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Mask
I have tried using The Beauty Co Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Mask in many different ways to make it work for me but have sadly failed. I have paired it with different shampoos and oiled my hair with different products before using the mask but nothing seems to make it work. Not only does the mask not reduce any frizz, it also does not detangle my hair at all. My hair feels quite rough and dry after using the product and I have to use a lot of hair serum afterwards to make it look presentable. The mask also does not add any shine to my hair as it claims to. This is quite surprising because even after containing silicones, the mask fails to smoothen my hair when even silicone-free masks are able to get the job done these days.
Overall, this product did not work out for my hair at all and even a basic conditioner gives me better results than this hair mask, at half the price. I will not recommend you to try this hair mask if your primary hair concerns are dryness and frizz. You can opt for the hair masks from Flawsome and Herb Island instead that are WAY better despite a similar price tag. I guess this proves that the ingredient list doesn’t necessarily prove the worth of a product, it is the final formula that matters. And sadly, this formula turned out to be a fail for me.
