I don’t know about you, but I have a love/loathe relationship with Fall. On one hand, it’s really one of my favorite times of the year — Fall is the season for harvests, pumpkin-flavored everything, endless supplies of candy, and in my case, it’s also the time of year when my skin, hair, and nails go dry and I am entirely frizzy, flaky, and peeling. As much as I love the harvest/pumpkins/candy situation, it’s scary times in my beauty world, folks!
Although my hair has evolved past this look I sported in my high school senior pictures …
… this is exactly how it seems my hair looks and feels during this season. Big! Dry! Out of control!
If I could leap backwards in time I would present my younger self with nourishing hair care products, such as L’Occitane’s Aromachologie Repairing Mask. This hair mask is one of my new favorite things, and my hair is ever so thankful it has been treated to this repairing, stimulating, and regenerating wonder that smells like a little slice of heaven.
This shea butter-based mask is enriched with a natural complex of 5 essential oils – Angelica, Lavender, Geranium, Ylang-Ylang, and Patchouli, with sunflower and wheat oil to add extra nourishment. After using this mask 2 times a week, my hair feels a lot better and I still have defined curls after two days of not washing. This mask arrived at the perfect time to renew my curls and is here to stay in my arsenal of hair care products.
My Final Thoughts: Pricey, but splurge worthy, the L’Occitane Aromochologie Repairing Mask has helped take my hair from frizz to fantastic, and I’m exceedingly pleased with the results. FYI, I find the fragrance is perfect without being overwhelming.
Price: $32 (6.7 oz)
Availability: You can purchase this at L’Occitane stores and at usa.loccitane.com.
