I once again had the wonderful opportunity to work with HASK to bring you another review of one of their collections!
I had never tried a hair care product that had Almond as its main headlining ingredient, so I headed to Hask’s website to find out more on the benefits of adding Mint and Almond to my care routine:
Pssst, yes YOU in the back who’s craving thick voluminous hair, have we got a secret for you… Did you know that almonds, in addition to being good for you and super tasty, have amazing benefits for limp, lifeless locks?! I know, we were shocked too! Take your hair to new heights with HASK Mint Almond Oil filled with omega fatty acids, Vitamin E and Magnesium, which help increase body and volume while adding nourishing shine to hair. No more begging and pleading with those pesky strands, bigger days are here. It’s time to make HASK Mint Almond oil your new BFF, complete with Bio3 Thickening Complex (a specialty formula blend) and peppermint oil that amplifies, fortifies and stimulates your hair and scalp. So go ahead and spread the word, we don’t mind the secret getting out!
This sample pack came with a full sized Mint Almond Oil Shampoo, Mint Almond Oil Conditioner, a Mint Almond Hair Root Thickening Spray, and a sassy little canvas bag! I had gotten a canvas bag from a previous sample, but this one is my favorite!
Shall we get started?
A little bit on my hair story:
So once again, lets revisit a tiny bit about my hair’s story.
Over the last year my hair has been bleached at the very least 5 times and bleached to oblivion. My hair was subjected to all this intense abuse because I was crazy obsessed with obtaining my dream purple ombre which resulted in some vibrantly colored lifeless hair. I was given the opportunity of trying out HASK’s Argan Oil Repairing line and fell in total love! The Argan line smells of citrus dreams and restored a bunch of moisture back into my hair. After I went finished all of my samples from the Argan line, I ran to Ulta and replenished my Argan oil line needs. I’m so not kidding when I say I fell in total love with this collection, my hair was healthy again. I only stopped using the Argan Oil line to test out the Macadamia Oil line, which I liked but did not love as much the Argan oil.
I have since bleached my hair once again and undergone the coveted silver fox transformation! I few inches of natural black root and the rest of my hair is a smoky silver gray. My hair is now requires even higher maintenance and temperamental. I now need to use a purple shampoo every few washes to maintain my color and although my hair sustained little damage during this last session, I am still babying it with lots of love and hair care.
Shampoo & Conditioner:
The claims of this shampoo and conditioner is that it:
Boost and restore lifeless locks with HASK Mint Almond Oil Thickening Shampoo. Known for its high content of omega fatty acids, vitamin E and magnesium, almond oil helps increase body and volume while adding nourishing shine to hair. With Bio3 Thickening Complex and peppermint oil to invigorate hair and scalp, this shampoo gently cleanses, leaving even the most flat hair looking thick and full.
I will admit that my hair is naturally full with volume (sometimes too much?) so I’ve never actually used a shampoo geared towards these claims and was excited to try it. My first impressions of this product was that both the shampoo an conditioner smell strongly of minty vanilla. If you’ve read my review of HASK’s Macadamia Oil shampoo, you’ll know I’m actually not a fan of Vanilla scents in my products. But personal scent preferences aside, the shampoo produced a rich lather and left my hair feeling very clean. The conditioner felt creamy and left my hair feeling nourished.
My hair felt pretty nice afterwards and I’ve been pretty pleased with these two products. I was worried using this product on my silver hair since gray and silver colors are fashion colors and wash out incredibly fast. I did not use the Mint shampoo every time I washed my hair, I alternated using my purple shampoo and the Mint Almond. I can’t use the purple shampoo every day, because that may stain my hair a lavender tone, which while great, is not what I’m currently going for. However, I did use the Mint Almond conditioner every wash.
I feel like I can comfortably say that I didn’t feel like these products stripped my color any faster than their normal rate of fading.
Mint Almond Oil Root Thickening Spray:
The Root Thickening spray also has some pretty similar claims:
Boost and restore lifeless locks with HASK Mint Almond Oil Root Thickening Spray. Known for its high content of omega fatty acids, vitamin E and magnesium, almond oil helps increase body and volume while adding nourishing shine to hair. With Bio3 Thickening Complex and peppermint oil to invigorate hair and scalp, this lightweight mist restores and strengthens, leaving flat, lifeless locks instantly looking thicker and fuller.
After my hair air dried half way, I apply some of HASK’s Argan Oil Shine Treatment into my hair and then applied some of the Root Thickening spray right before blow drying my hair. The spray did not weigh down my hair at all and I would say it added some volume to my hair. I’m still a novice at blow drying my hair, so I probably did not use this product to its fullest potential, but I was pleased with how my hair looked and felt. My hair was soft, I had a touch of volume without looking like I had crazy big beauty queen hair.
Overall, once again, I think HASK has succeeded in creating a wonderful product that loves your hair. If you are looking to raise your roots and add body and shine to your locks, look into trying out this line. Additionally, this line is super easy on the wallet, who doesn’t love affordable and effective hair care? 😉
However, it is my personal preference to return to the Argan Oil Repairing line. The Argan oil line has an amazing citrus scent that I adore and I personally prefer using products dedicated to restoring my hair’s moisture and repairing the damage I cruelly inflect onto my locks.
The whole line is completely affordable with a price breakdown of:
HASK Mint Almond Oil Shampoo – $5.99
HASK Mint Almond Oil Conditioner – $5.99
HASK Mint Almond Oil Root Thickening Spray – $4.99
You can find out more about the line and the company from their website HaskBeauty.com
