Being a big fan of the Oleo Relax Shampoo and Serum, I was very disappointed with the Oleo Mask. Based on my experience with the Oleo Relad Shampoo & Serum and Maquintense for Thick Hair, I thought the Oleo Mask would be a super charged conditioner. For me, this was not the case. Unlike the Maquintense, I had to leave the Oleo Mask for at least 30 minutes to have good results. But, my hair was lank the next day after conditioning my hair. Also unlike the Maquintense, I am unable to use Oleo as a daily conditioner. Still a fan of Kerastase and will repurchase the Oleo Relax Shampoo and Serum (which are well worth the money), however I will pass on the mask. I find the Maquintense a much better conditioner and treatment.
EDIT: I'm upgrading this to a 4. After shampooing my hair with the Oleo shampoo, I followed the instructions and left this mask on for 10 min. It did the trick. I did not even need to use a leave in conditioner (which I normally have to). However, I still think Maquintense is a better daily conditioner. With Maquintense I only need to leave the conditioner on for 7 minutes as oppossed to 10+ min.
Oleo Relax is my HG and the ONLY conditioner that I can use if I am not wearing my hair in a ponytail. I have extrememly thick and wavy hair that takes me between 45 minutes to an hour to blow dry straight (and that is using KMS Flat out and Biosilk Shine Therapy afterwards). For years I searched for a conditioner that wouldn't leave my hair frizzy and untangled. I had my hair done one day and was suckered into purchasing the whole Oleo Relax line. The shampoo and serum did nothing for me but from the first day I used the conditioner masque, I was hooked and in disbelief at how my hair used to look the first 25 years of my life (Where have you been all my life??) This is very expensive and worth every freaking penny. I only spend my hard earned money on two things 1) La Mer Oil Absorbing Lotion and 2) Oleo Relax.
I love this product it rejuvinates dead hair. Give yourself 5 minutes and your hair is much much softer and easier to style. It's a little on the pricey side but worth it every now and then.
Yummy! A real luxury product that I will always re buy as the results are always good. Im onto my 10th tub now :P
anyone who would even consider using this product obviosly has dry probably thick and possibly curly hair.If so ..YOU HAVE FOUND SOMETHING THAT WILL MAKE YOUR HAIR LOOK AWESOME. If you are a curly girl with thick frizzy hair you probably use as much comditioner as I do..( A LOT) so i got the proff size on ebay..its redic expensive especially cuz i use it for everyday conditioner, but ..when i run out I wait a few weeks to reorder (b/c of price) and my hair misses it! I would appreciate a pump for the jar but i can live without it!
This is a pretty good hair mask, I think. Personally, I don't really understand what's so bad about a mask that comes in a jar. At least you can be sure you've gotten every last bit of product out! The mask smells....Oleo-Relax-y. If you have smelt the shampoo, you'll know what I'm talking about. Somewhat pot-pourri-like. The mask is rather oily, but didn't seem to do that much in the way of moisturizing my hair. It did however, manage to smooth it down. No easy feat, I assure you. Edit: Am begining to see what the fuss about products in jars is all about. I still don't mind when it comes to hair-products (use it up, get that last bit on to your ends!) but when it comes to facial care, extremely unhygienic.
great product! after being absent to a salon for almost a year now. my hair is dying for a hair treatment. since i need something for my puffy parched hair, i decided to purchase this. my hair is really soft and less rebellious....though to get great results-you really have to leave it for like 30mins or more.using a heating cap is optional too. now i dont have to worry about my hair for a while as long as im using this.
I am SO SO glad I bought Maquintense at the same time. This product is USELESS. I use my Maquintense as a regular conditioner and it is wonderful. I also use the oleo-relax shampoo. I have coarse wavy black hair and like others, have gotten caramel and butterscotch highlights a la JLo. After having my hair processed the second time, NOTHING would make it soft. The Masque Oleo Relax works no better than Pantene for me. Immediately after rinsing, the processed parts of my hair still feel dry, even though they are sopping wet! If you have ethnic hair like mine, give this a pass. Try the Maquintense instead.
For some reasons, Oleo relax mask is more expensive than Masquintense. I prefer masquintense though, as it gave me softer and much manageable hair. Oleo relax is good when my hair is stressed, a good treatment once in a while, whereas masquintense is a staple for at least twice a week, in my opinion anyway. Rave for Kerastase once again.
A bad hair-masque. In order to finish the pot faster I used it everyday as daily conditioner...I must say it is the best conditioner for me. Lovely texture and scent, but i don't like the pot~ Will purchase again if I can't find a better conditioner.
