Not only is the air especially dry, I’ve been harassing my strands with the hair dryer and curling iron, and yanking it into a tight bun, instead of letting it air dry into loose waves like I do in the summer.
So I was more than happy to receive John Masters Organics Leave-in Conditioning Mist to try. This 4.2 ounce brown bottle contains ten certified-organic botanical oils and extracts. Green tea’s antioxidants and natural antibacterial properties help stimulate hair growth. Calendula protects and softens the hair and scalp, while serving as an anti-inflammatory. Broccoli seed oil helps eliminate frizz with its fatty acids, sunflower seed oil’s antioxidants protects hair from environmental pollutants (key in NYC!), chamomile extract strengthens the hair while treating scalp issues, and rosemary extract helps stimulate hair growth and add volume and shine.
All this makes it smell so lovely. Which almost enough to use it in itself!
The suggested use for this treatment is right after you get out of the shower. I like to spray it on between unwrapping my t-shirt from my hair and brushing it out. I notice that it makes your hair a little stickier than usual when you want to brush your hair wet.
But I’ve also come to really enjoy its secondary purpose, which is to recondition and moisturize throughout the day. It’s especially nice to use when your hair is dry and not behaving, and you need to wet it a little bit to restyle. (Bangs, I’m looking at you!) And when I’m running my fingers through my hair and find it dry and breaking, I spritz some on, similar to when I use hand lotion on my dry hands. It’s really satisfying!
Does it work overall? Well I will tell you this: A guy friend of mine told me on Friday night, “You hair looks really nice. Very shiny and pretty.” Scientific proof? No. He always has something really kind to say. But I would like to think this conditioner is doing its job.
