For me, looking after my hair is just as important as taking good care of my skin. Makeup can be applied and taken off, but your hair, skin and body are there with you, day in day out, and every aspect of us deserves a darn good pamper whenever we can spare the time. Often, I like to put aside one evening a week where I can just pamper myself. A trio of super-skin face masks, a full body pamper with scrubs and oils, lotions and potions, a hydrating overnight face mask and just as importantly, hair masks.
Organic Surge have released their very first hair conditioning mask, the Organic Surge Nourish 2-Minute Moisture Mask* (Organic Surge*, 150ml, £6.99) which is aimed at dull, dry or frizzy hair, but is suitable for all hair types. With the strong Organic Surge ethos; it contains no harsh chemicals, is 100% silicone free, as well as animal, vegetarian and vegan friendly, this mask has been a regular in my hair care routine for the past four weeks. To give you a little background on my hair, my hair has always been in pretty good condition. It's naturally curly/wavy (think frizzy ringlets) and it gets a lot of heat damage from hair dryers and straighteners, but I managed to counter-act that damage from heated tools by using some really brilliant hair care products (as mentioned in my Top 5 Hair Care Products for Happy, Healthy Hair post) Generally my hair is soft, shiny, healthy - which isn't always a good thing as it doesn't stay straight for long when I've straightened it.
I've been using the Organic Surge mask twice a week, sometimes three if I've overdone it with the heated tools. First impressions of the 2-Minute Moisture Mask were that I really like the packaging; it's clean, simple, it just appeals to me - as is the case with the entire Organic Surge range. Upon opening you are instantly hit with a stunning scent of coconut and it rivals many of my coconut scented products, because this scent is the perfect in-between; it's not overpowering, it's not sickly, it just smells like lovely coconuts! The consistency is that of any conditioning treatment - thicker than your conditioner, but not solid or too difficult to use. It has a light and fluffy texture and I like to use my fingers to get a big scoop out, applying it to all of my hair minus my roots (if you suffer from oily roots, avoid putting extremely conditioning products on your roots!) I pop it on, massage my scalp a bit, then leave it on for the recommended 2 minutes before thoroughly rinsing it out.
Overall I think this is a fantastic budget friendly product from a brand I really like. It made my hair overall feel soft and the scent, oh the lovely coconut scent, sticks around for a good full day leaving you smelling just yummy. But I don't think it's quite as nourishing as other masks out there, so although I like it, it's not made it onto the love list. If you have colour treated hair, or suffer from dry/split ends, I would suggest giving this a go; it's a great quick fix and cheap enough to use as often as you like, but make sure to pop a good hair oil in your routine too, for a real boost of nourishment.
