Did you know it’s actually possible to have tired hair? We run our hands through it, smother it in products and heat it up to 200 degrees, all in the name of making it look good. If someone did that to us, our feelings would be hurt. So it was time we thought about our hair and treated it to a little special something. We took the R+Co Palm Springs Pre-Shampoo Treatment for a whirl to see if it could help us heal our hair.
Happier and healthier hair, for sure. We’re not going to lie, adding a mask to our routine was a bit of an ask because it’s already such an effort to wash and dry hair but after this run, we’re happy to add in some extra time. The way it works is that you have to apply the cream straight onto your dry hair, leave it in for 10 minutes then wash it out with your usual shampoo.
After we did this for a couple of weeks, our locks were visibly shinier and even a little softer to touch (it can get a bit coarse when you haven’t had time for a trim and just put it through the grind everyday). It probably has something to do with the cocktail of oils and butters oozing into our hair before we washed it.
You can also use the mask like a traditional hair treatment after shampooing for an extra hydration boost.
It’s like sending your hair off to Palm Springs for a little vacation every week.
