Although I remain committed to Organics by Africa’s Best Hair Mayonnaise (my go to protein treatment as well as a staple investment), I am always on the look out for something better or just as good. Looking to explore the current market of deep conditioners, I decided to purchase Vatika Naturals Egg Protein Deep Conditioning Hair Mask (£5.99, from Superdrug). Prior to using this hair mask, I had never tried anything by the brand, Vatika. Marketed as a pre-shampoo treatment, it is no surprise that I love it! I am a pre-shampoo treatment connoisseur and this is amazing!
Pleasantly scented, I believe this hair mask halted the shedding caused by Shea Moisture (mentioned in the previous post). I’ve used it in conjunction with a variety of shampoos as well as conditioners and the results are consistent. My curls felt softer and were more manageable during the usual stripping shampooing process. As well as a brilliant pre-shampoo treatment, this hair mask is also great for detangling; I was able to glide my comb through my curls with ease. I would recommend this product to anyone whose hair tangles in contact with water and/or shampoo. It’s a protein treatment that is light but effective. I’m incredibly protein sensitive but this worked nothing but magic to my hair.
