I was sent a little gift from Majestic Pure to try out a while back, it is their Coconut Hair Mask which comes in a 260 ml tub. The packaging is quite simple, just a transparent tub which doesn’t look overly expensive and it has a white screw top lid. The label has all the ingredients listed (which all seem good & natural) as well as some info about the hair mask and directions on how to use.
I struggled to open the tub so I had to use a knife to get it open.
Majestic Pure say the Coconut hair mask is enriched with a formula to hydrate and repair damaged hair, it revitalizes, sparkles long lasting shine and restores softness.
The mask itself is a thick, white, non-drip lotion which smells of mild coconut. The lotion spread easily and glided through my roots to my ends coating every strand. I left the mask on for about 5 – 20 minutes each time and on one occasion I left it on my hair over night to give my damaged hair a deep condition.
My hair felt thicker and moisturised after drying with a hair-dryer and it smelled nice and clean although I didn’t notice my hair being any shinier or glossier but it did feel healthier and soft. I do recommend giving hair a good rinse after using it as there were a few times my hair felt like it still had product in it, so I made sure I rinsed the mask off completely.
I would use the Coconut Hair Mask again but it is not one of my favourite hair masks that I have used. I had an Argan Oil Hair Mask which was from Majestic Pure also and I felt the argan oil one nourished and repaired my damaged hair more than the coconut one.
To be completely honest I’m a bit of a tea tank and I can easily drink twenty cups a day. The last 3 weeks I have not only been sippin’ on cuppa’s but I have been using my teabags to make my own DIY Black Tea Hair Rinse to see if it can help reduce shedding of the hair, stimulate hair growth and thickness as well as enchance shine as I long for long, full and thick hair and I regret getting the chop.
You must have seen all these miracle hair growing shampoo’s that prevent hair falling out and helps to make your own hair grow back thicker, fuller and longer? Let’s take the well-known, Alpecin for example. Well basically, Alpecin is very rich in caffeine and well, Black Tea is extremely rich in caffeine too and it doesn’t contain any nasty ingredients or chemicals that some hair brand dump in their shampoo’s. Ït is completely natural and a lot cheaper than those miracle shampoo’s.
A LARGE BOWL (A plastic dishbowl is perfect or just anything to put the tea into and then pour over your head.)
HOT KETTLE WATER – (To steep & brew the teabags and extract all the goodness of the black tea into the hot water).
1: Soak the teabags in hot kettle water for a few hours or for best results over night. (Don’t add sugar, don’t add milk, he he.)
2: When the Teabags have been steeped for 12-24 hours, take each teabag and squeeze all of the excess liquid back into the bowl. We want every drop!
3: Don’t be alarmed by this step. Its kind of similar to washing your hair in the sink, Ha. So. dip your head into the bowl leaving it submerged in the water for about 5 minutes and completely saturate your scalp and hair with the Black Tea. Or if you can’t be bothered dunking your head in a bowl for five minutes, simply pour the Black Tea water over your whole head, then follow with a shower cap – just make sure you do it in the bathroom otherwise you’ll have a puddle to clean up. Wear old clothes too. Tea stains are a bitch to get out.
4: When the five minutes of dunking is up, don’t squeeze out the excess water from your hair. Clamp your hair up into a loose bun and put on a shower cap, keeping a face towel near to wipe any black tea that falls down onto your face.
5: Leave the black tea water on your hair for a whole hour, then rinse and follow up with a nourishing conditioner.
6: Results will not be visible straight away but you will definitely see results by doing a Black Tea Rinse, week by week. Add the Black Tea Rinse into your beauty regime, its worth a try and the only thing your losing is teabags, hey. Forget the expensive ‘miracle’ shampoo’s. Black Tea works just as well.
REMEMBER: DONT USE HOT WATER ON YOUR HEAD. LET THE WATER COOL
Little tip: Keep the used tea bags and recycle them for your eyes to reduce dark circles, irritation and puffiness… They help to soothe and brighten your eyes too.
My results after 3 weeks:
So, once a week I have been doing a Black Tea Rinse on my hair and so far I am very pleased with the results. My hair always feels soft, smooth and looks shiny afterwards and by week 3 of doing weekly rinses, I can feel how much thicker my hair is becoming and I can definitely see less hair loss after brushing.
You guys should give this a whirl, you probably have teabags at home so you can start right now if you wish. Let me know if you guys try it and continue to use it weekly. I’d love to see your results.
I’d love to hear some of your favourite DIY beauty Projects which you have found on the internet?
I adore crafting my own beauty recipes, so you guys will be doing me a BIG favour if you share some of your ‘makes’ below? I might even post about them on here.
I bought some Inecto Coconut Hair Shampoo & Conditioner a few days ago and I’ve just absolutely fell in love with it! I’ve never tried any of Inecto’s products before, I’ve never even heard of them until now but I had a little voice in my head screaming ‘BUY, BUYY, BUYYY’ while out shopping yesterday. I had to do as I was told didn’t I and I’m so grateful to that little voice now that I have tried them!
What I’ve Been Using
I’ve been using the Inecto Naturals Super Nourishing Coconut Shampoo & Super Moisturising Coconut Conditioner to rescue my damaged, dry and brittle hair.
The packaging of the shampoo and conditioner instantly grabbed my attention – I just love the crisp, clean, and simple white bottles because they look so fresh and modern. I was shocked to find that they were only £1.19 each as they were pretty good sized 500 ml bottles and look very expensive.
I love how my hair looks and feels after using them! My hair hasn’t looked / felt as healthy as it does now for a long, long time. It is so silky to touch and looks so much healthier. Usually an hour or two later after styling my hair, it becomes tatty and coarse to touch. My hair smells absolutely amazing too and is so shiny and smooth with not a split end in sight – I can’t praise them enough. I’m definitely going to buy the Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner again and I’m really looking forward to trying the Inecto Argon Oil Shampoo/Conditioner too as well as other products made by Inecto.
As mentioned above the shampoo & conditioner cost me around £2.40 for both which I think is a bargain price – I would definitely purchase them both if they where more expensive to buy! I think they’re amazing and they’ve done an amazing job at moisturising my hair so I have put them into My Favourite Products.
Apparently, they are not tested on animals (cruelty free), suitable for vegans and contain no PARABENS.
The only negative(ish) thing I have to say about the actual shampoo and conditioner is when leaving my hair to dry naturally it seemed to take forever to completely dry. I’m trying to get my locks healthy again so I try not to use hairdryers and straighteners on my hair as often as I can. With other shampoo’s and conditioners if I leave my hair to dry naturally instead of blowing it with a hairdryer – it dries by itself within an hour. Six hours after washing my hair with Inecto’s Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner it was still very damp! Although, if you dry your hair with a hairdryer or have all the time in the world to wait for your hair to dry – this shouldn’t be a problem for you.
Another negative is the ingredients. As mentioned above the packaging claims the ingredients are ‘PURE’ as well as containing 100% coconut oil but after doing some research I’ve discovered they actually contain COCONUT DIETHANOLIDE, SODIUM LAURETH Sulfate (SLS), METHYLISOTHIAZOLINONE and MAGNESIUM NITRATE HEXAHYDRATE.
I am disappointed because I fell for the word ‘PURE’ and discovered the ingredients contain NASTIES which I usually try to avoid! As well as feeling tricked about the false advertising on the bottles but… although I’m a little disappointed with the ingredients, I do like how its rescued my hair and I will buy it again!
I’d recommend Inecto Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner to anyone and everyone! Especially those with damaged dry hair who will certainly benefit from the serious moisturising ability. I’d also recommend to anyone who likes to use quality hair products but for a reasonable price too!
Where To Buy
I got mine from Home Bargains for around £1.20 each. You can get some on eBay and Amazon too. Check out Inecto‘s website to find a local stockist near you.
