Carol’s Daughter – Rhassoul Clay Softening Hair Mask – Review

In a Few Words
A rich hair mask for overworked hair.

“When your active lifestyle is hard on your hair, it can look and feel overworked: dull, brittle and lifeless. This velvety mask is made to replenish and infuse deep moisture, leaving your hair revitalized, touchably soft, recharged—and ready to take on the rest of you day.” Carol’s Daughter Rhassoul Clay Softening Hair Mask comes in a 12 oz tub and sells for about $15.00.

I have very dry, damaged hair… overworked is the perfect adjective for it! In the past 12 months my hair has gone from red to silver to brown so it has been put through the wringer and you can definitely tell. Even in it’s natural state, my hair is dry and coarse. I bought mask on Amazon and have used it about six times. I was intrigued my this product because I don’t see many hair products using clay an after some internet research on rhassoul clay (AKA red Moroccan clay) I decided it was worth a try! I use the mask once a week and will either leave it on for an hour or so under a plastic cap or I will add heat (a blow dryer) and leave it on for 15 minutes. I apply this mask form root to tip because both the rhassoul clay and salicylic acid are good for scalp health. The first time I used the mask I was absolutely blown away! It intensely smoothed and softened my hair, defined my natural waves, and reduced frizz. My hair felt great until the next time I washed it 6 days later. I really think anyone could use this mask. While it is thick, it is not heavy and does wash out completely so it won’t weigh down your hair. The mask smells like chai spices to me and, while I do like the smell, I think it’s noteworthy to mention that fragrance is in the first 10 ingredients.

The Carol’s Daughter Rhassoul Clay Hair Softening Mask is a fantastic deep conditioner for hair that needs extra TLC.
