I have searched the forums, reviews and articles and I can't find anything about this mask. I saw this hairmask in The Body Shop and I'm really curious. I was hoping some of you could share your experiences with it.:flower:

I'm on my second tub of it. I don't have the ingredient list on hand, but I believe there are lots of oils and proteins in it, along with some 'cones too, so it is a mix of both. It smells exactly like brazil nuts, IMO, which I love and the smell lingers for awhile in your hair. Not the greatest for detangling but not horrible either. I use mine on wet freshly shampooed hair under a heat cap for 30 mins. before rinsing. It isn't a holy grail product for me, but something that I enjoy nevertheless.

Hmmm...maybe I'll pick some up next time I'm at the mall - looks like it might do some good!

Now, I am even more curious :eek: My sister is bringing it on Saturday.

@Cinnamon Hair: so it's not a good detangler for you? Hmm, then it's going to be tricky for me too, my hair loves to tangle.

I hope I like the smell, I already know the smell of the Brazil Nut Body Butter, but I didn't think it was wow or something.

Maybe I should put a review when I tried it?

I swear by that stuff! It works wonders on my ends, and it's also the best conditioner I've found for mixing into henna. There's a lot of honey in it as well as brazil nuts, so it doesn't just smell of brazil nuts - it's much sweeter. Also, the smell really sticks around, so you'd better sniff it in the shop to see whether you like it.

I also like their poppy seed hair mask. There's not a lot in it between them as far as the way they behave on my hair, though the poppy seed mask feels like there's more 'slip' to it.

Do you follow the manual (prewash treatment), or do you just use it like any other hairmask?

Oh interesting!
I'll look if they have that here too because I use the brazillian nut bodybutter and I love the smell and what it does for my skin, so maybe the hair one will be good too.

I wish they had a hairmask with coconut or cocoa butter...
But hey, maybe I'll like the smell. Overall I love warm, sweet, nutty smells.

I've finally tried it. And it is so greasy. Nothing for my hair :( But I think people with really dry hair will love it. Smells nice though :)

I used to use the treatment mask they had in the 90's, i expect it's been reformulated now but i remember loving it.....it even made my bleached hair (yes actually bleached not a high lift tint and 40vol peroxide mixed with it not 30 like was recommended) go from feeling like straw to feeling almost silky. It was much cheaper back then though.....i also found it good on my often chemically burnt scalp (from the bleach) god typing this now i can't believe what i used to do to my hair and scalp!

i think this one is better, it makes hair lovely.

I love the smell of it but it also did nothing for my hair. It took two washes to get it out and I didn't notice any difference to my hair. Oh well.
