I am due for a trim. Alright, to be honest, I am waaaay overdue for a trim. My hair is not only too long (and a little shapeless), but it has also become a bit “fuzzy” due to the increasing number of split ends.
So, my Vivify Hair Mask arrived just in time! This hair mask is a penetrating, deep conditioning treatment for dry, damaged hair like mine. And, boy does it ever work.
The mask is made with 100% pure Andalucian Olive Oil. Olive oil has been a secret for soft, beautiful hair and skin since before the time of Cleopatra. According to A History of Cosmetics from Ancient Times at CosmeticsInfo.org, “Cosmetics are an integral part of Egyptian hygiene and health. Oils and creams are used for protection against the hot Egyptian sun and dry winds. Myrrh, thyme, marjoram, chamomile, lavender, lily, peppermint, rosemary, cedar, rose, aloe, olive oil, sesame oil, and almond oil provide the basic ingredients…”
Although the mask is made with oil, it is surprisingly non-greasy — about the same consistency and texture as a thick conditioner. But, that is where the similarities end.
Unlike a daily conditioner, Vivify penetrates deep into the hair follicles and moisturizes completely. When it is time to dry and style, you will instantly notice that it is easier to brush, shiny and healthy looking. And the split ends? Well, they are still there, but far less noticible, and the overall “fuzzy” look is gone.
Full disclosure: One of the claims made by Vivify is that the inclusion of Pro-Vitamin B5 adds healing, anti-inflammatory properties to reduce itching, irritation and dandruff. Luckily, I don’t suffer from those conditions, so I can’t comment directly to its efficacy.
What I can say is… my hair looks great. And, at only $12.99 with Amazon Prime, this is a product you really should try!
