Hask Keratin Protein Smoothing Shampoo*, Conditioner* and Smoothing Mask* Review

I was really excited when I heard Hask were introducing shampoos and conditioners to their hair care range. I've used their Argan Oil and their Macademia Hot Oil Mask before and was really happy with their effects.
Today I have the Keratin Protein Smoothing Shampoo*, Conditioner* and Mask* to share with you all.

I really love the packaging of the shampoo and conditioner. For some reason they just look so much more pretty and interesting on my bathroom shelf than other shampoo/conditioners. They just look more expensive/luxurious than, for example, L'Oreal packaging. There is also an Argan Oil based Shampoo and Conditioner in the range which I will be sharing with you very soon once I've used up these two!

There isn't a super strong scent, the scent reminds me of a L'oreal Shampoo and Conditioner I've used before, I think its the one in the red packaging? Anyway, its not a gross smell but you're not gonna smell it and go oh my god thats amazing. I do wish they had a nice lingering scent!

I did notice my hair looked and felt a lot better after using this. Its usually quite crazy with lots of flyaway after blowdrying but it did look a lot more smooth and in control! 
I've never been someone who repurchases a specific shampoo or conditioner, I usually just use whatever is there but I really do think I'll repurchase either this one (unless I like the Argan Oil one more).
Im not 100% sure of the price these will be, but I've tweeted Hask to ask so I'll update once I find out!

Now onto the hair mask! First off all the packaging. I'm not a fan of when hair masks come in sachets. Because there is so much product in the satchet (I ain't complaining about excess product mind you!) I had quite a lot left over and you can't reseal it. I was just worried about the satchet leaking all over my bathroom shelves. I ended up cleaning out an small old soap and glory tub and squeezing the rest of the product into it. Its just easier for storing. 
I do think they need to make tubes or tubs of this AS WELL as the satchets as they're handy for first timers to try out the product and see how they like it before committing to a tube or tub. 

I left this on for about 10 minutes before rinsing it off. While rinsing it off I did notice how soft and smooth my hair felt. I LOVE that feeling! My hair usually feels dry and tangly when I'm rinsing out my shampoo or conditioner but I love rinsing off masks because of how smooth, soft and non tangly my hair feels! 
Again I did notice how smooth my hair looked compared to how whispy and dry it feels after blowdrying it.

I think these are great to have in your bathroom when you feel like your hair needs a treat, at only €2-3 a pop plus with the amount of product you get they really are worth it! You can find these in Penneys and pharmacys all over Ireland!

  1. Thanks for the review. I've been using protein and keratin treatments for years. The protein treatment that I usually use is from a brand called Aphogee. But I think I'd like to try this one, thanks to your review! Did you take any before and afters of your hair?
