I’m not sure why I haven’t done a post of this product before, I’ve been using it for nearly a year now and I can safely say this is one of my ‘HG’ (Holy Grail) hair care items :)
In this little box you get 12 red capsules(they are available in sets of 30) which are designed to ‘repair split-ends and straighten the hair against chemicals or physical damage. Infused with pure extract of Vitamin E and Squalane to protect the hair before and after drying, helping to rejuvenate damaged areas.’ I used to straighten my hair daily and so I’ve tried my fair share of ‘split end repairing’ treatments with most not really doing much and I didn’t have high hopes for this – particularly after reading quite a few negative reviews..
But all you do is twist of the end of the capsule to get a clear gel(I wouldn’t call it an oil like a lot of people have, it’s far too thick) then I rub it between my fingertips and apply it to my ends – do not rinse after application. Again a lot of bloggers have said they felt the need to wash their hair after & honestly I don’t know why, my hair is far from dry yet as long as you rub it evenly through your ends you don’t get and grease or oiliness (similarly if you just use your fingertips and apply all the product on your hands to your hair your hands won’t feel oily)
I don’t use these all the time purely because my hair doesn’t need them, and I think if used daily these might not be as effective but whenever I blow dry my hair I always apply half a capsule to my wet ends and then the other half of the capsule once my hair is dry & I feel it works a lot like a serum on my hair – getting rid of dryness and making my ends look healthy.
Whether these actually ‘repair’ my ends it does –to and extent, I think these do more for the appearance and prevention of split ends but for me, that’s enough reason to repurchase.
My only negatives are the capsule idea itself, they are a bit of a novelty at first but after a while I can’t help but think I’d reach for it more if it was contained in a more standard generic way and the scent isn’t great – it’s not awful or overpowering, I just think it could be improved upon.
