Percy & Reed Totally TLC Hydrating Mask

Despite telling myself that I was 100% not allowed to buy anything frivolous this month (which I have technically broken already) I decided that paying £2 for Glamour this month to receive a free product of Percy & Reed Totally TLC Hydrating Mask was allowed :P
Firstly I was attracted to this by the gorgeous design, it looks really sleek and chic with a cute drawing of a girl with enormous hair :P I'm not going to lie, the packaging was the reason I paid any attention to it, but hey, that's what packaging is meant for :P


I used this earlier and I had to google instructions for use, because the ones on the back aren't very good. I wasn't entirely sure if  I had to put it on wet or dry hair or how long the best amount of time was (it said minimum 10 minutes). I found (on the Red website) that people saw the best results when their hair was slightly damp, so I used my hands to pour a small amount of water evenly over my hair and squeezed the excess out, and for about 20 minutes.

I made put my hair up and under a plastic bag turban (which I made myself :P) and then wrapped a towel around it as the instructions did say it worked best when warm. I had a fun 20 minutes wandering around with a hot pink turban then went to the shower to wash it off.
I have to say I really like this product, I don't usually use hair masks really, I think I've only ever tried one before and that was quite a while ago so I'm no expert. Since my hair has been incredibly dry recently I thought this was amazing. My hair really feels soft and silky. This is quite a good bargain as there is 100ml in the tube and I used two tiny blobs and I have medium length hair. I can't wait to use it when I've finally gotten my hair cut to get rid of all my nasty split ends (boooooo split ends, go away).
Percy & Reed also have a 'heat activating bonnet' which you can buy to accompany this product, although to me it just looks like a jazzed up shower cap :P I think I'll stick with my pink turban thank you :P
Me and my hair :P

  8. I love this hydrating mask. I thought my hair was super soft and glossy afterwards. I do think it is expensive though, but a lovely nice treat. Great post x
