I'm 7 weeks post and I'm one week overdue for a medium to heavy protein treatment so it was the perfect opportunity to try out the ORS Olive Oil Hair Masque. My first impression was that it had a very mild scent reminding me almost of a Jergens Lotion. It was also extremely thick, so much so that if you were to turn the jar upside down, it would not even budge.
I decided to try the product without adding any additional oils to it and applied it to hair that was 80% dry. It is very thick and spreads easily onto the hair. It didn't feel like it was easily absorbed into my hair; instead it felt as if it was coating my hair. I was happy that I didn't need a lot even though I parted my hair in small sections and applied the product from root to tip. After I put on a plastic cap and sat under the dryer for 15 minutes. I then went and prepared lunch so the conditioner stayed in my hair for several hours.
When I eventually removed my plastic cap, I noticed that my hair had really absorbed the conditioner. After washing out the conditioner, my new growth felt soft and fluffy and the length of my hair really moisturised. Although it has protein (keratin) in it and is not recommended for daily use, you would honestly believe it to be a moisturising conditioner. My hair felt that wonderful after using it. Detangling was a breeze, it just helped the comb to slide through my new growth.
ORS definitely has another winner here. I love the product without even adding extra oils to it. It is THAT good. I will definitely be adding it to my regimen and it is going to replace the Hair Mayonnaise. I will only be using it every 6 weeks and the week prior to and after my relaxer, so although it is expensive, it will last me a really long time.
Next weekend will be my light protein deep condition and I am going to try and determine whether I prefer the ORS Replenishing Conditioner or the ORS HAIRepair Nourishing Conditioner
