I think I'm Going Coco Loco!

The wonderful people at Old Wives Tail kindly sent me a lovely Hair Mask to get my tattered locks under control. 
I explained a bit about my hair, what condition it was in, that it was bleached and coloured and damaged from years or colouring, and they suggested the Coco Loco Organic Coconut Oil Hair Mask, phew that's a mouthful!
So what's Old Wives Tail all about ...
"Old Wives Tail is a small hair care company selling handmade organic hair care products – absolutely no additives or chemicals. We aim to nourish your hair back to life the Latino way with our unique blend of oils. Our main lifetime goal is to eradicate animal testing in the beauty industry and 10% of our profits go to charities that save animals from being tested upon. Love your pets, love the environment and love your hair naturally with OWT!"
I was especially drawn to this company because they donate to anti animal cruelty charities and they use fantastic organic products. 
Having such damaged hair, it's important that when I do use hair products on it, I use stuff thats not going to damage it any more than it already is.
So onto the good stuff, literally.
The mask comes nicely packaged in a tub with the company logo on it, and a little leaflet on the mask itself with directions.





The hair mask I got is quite oily, as soon as I took some out of the pot on with my fingers, it started slowly melting.
Which is great because often you get oil based products which just go all over your hands and arms and just make a mess, with this product you can actually get some in your palm and rub it into both hands before it getting it onto your hair and working it in.


I used this the other night and I went for a full night mask rather than the first option of leaving it on for an hour. 
So to do this I first got a towel and stuck it over the radiator and then I rubbed the mask through my hair, concentrating on my roots. Once I was happy that my hair was sufficiently covered and worked in, I wrapped it into a towel turban and went to bed. 

I washed my hair as the instructions suggest and towel dried my hair and left it to naturally dry.
After an hour or two I brushed my hair through just once and it felt a lot better than normal. 
Definitely more softer, but also smelt really nice. 
This mask smells like coconut but has a hint of peppermint.

I think I will need to do this a few times a month to really feel the benefits of the organic ingredients, but for the moment I am impressed.

I would definitely purchase this after I have used it up.
