As diehard fans of the bleached lewk, our hair requires a shit-ton of maintenance. Aside from the twice-daily dose of Viviscal and weekly bang trims with Nison (at the Bumble salon, natch) the color process (shout out to Mai!) requires great care and upkeep.
Masks weren’t really our thing, we preferred a thick layer of coconut oil pre-shampoo, but TBH that required a lot of shampoo and extra rinsing.
Then along came this Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Balm-To-Oil Pre-Shampoo Masque. As fans of Invisible Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, we were more than willing to see what this hair mask could do for us and our perpetually high-maintenance ‘do.
We warmed the balm between our palms until it softened to an oil and then slathered it all over from roots to ends. Then we did a few household chores for 20 mins till it absorbed. A shampoo and conditioning step later, we gave it a good rinse and it rinsed out really easily.
It 100% gave a smoother shaft to the hair, but entirely without any greasiness. Totally adding this to the weekly hair maintenance program henceforth.
