For 2017 I decided to be kinder to my hair and force myself to use an hair mask everytime I wash my hair. My hair and scalp are very try so I tend to favour more nourishing formulas for my haircare products in a bid to inject some much needed moisture. TIGI is one of my favourite haircare brands as their products all smell incredible but they’re all so effective too and I’m not going to lie, my haircare shelves look like those in a salon as I’m so obsessed with their products. I’ve tried most of the TIGI product ranges but one of the ranges I hadn’t tried until last year was their Oatmeal & Honey range which is designed for those with dry, damaged hair so I figured it was time I finally gave the range a try. The TIGI Oatmeal & Honey range includes a shampoo, conditioner and mask and I decided upon the the Catwalk By TIGI Oatmeal & Honey Intense Nourishing Mask as it sounded ideal for my hair type and I love products which contain honey.
The Catwalk By TIGI Oatmeal & Honey Intense Nourishing Mask is an intensive treatment for dry, damaged hair and helps to repair and strengthen your hair, leaving it with a shiny and lustrous appearance. The indulgent mask has a delicate oatmeal and honey fragrance and is formulated with acacia honey and wheat which helps to nourish and repair, leaving hair soft, smooth and full of shine.
It also contains active fibre-repairing ingredients which work to reconstruct the hair internally. The mask is packaged within a large, black plastic pot with a screw lid and a teal/bright black ombréd design on the label. I always love TIGI’s branding on their products as they stand out amongst my other products.
The mask itself is pretty thick with a lovely sweet and oaty scent, and the fragrance lingers in the hair almost all day. Even though the mask is quite thick, it’s still easy to spread over the lengths of my hair and I tend to scoop around half a golf ball sized amount for my long hair but you could apply more/less.
Both my scalp and hair are dry so I can coat both with the mask but if you have oilier roots and dry ends you could just apply the mask to the lengths of your hair and avoid the roots completely. Once I’ve coated the entirety of my hair, I leave it to work its magic for about ten minutes but the longer I leave it on my hair, the better the results.
I’m a massive fan of the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque but it is on the pricier side, but I would say that the Catwalk By TIGI Oatmeal & Honey Intense Nourishing Mask offers the same deep conditioning and smoothing benefits for a slightly smaller price tag. It’s still a salon product so it’s definitely not ‘cheap’ but it is a great alternative to the Macadamia Masque nonetheless.
Whenever I use the Oatmeal & Honey Mask, it leaves my hair feeling considerably more hydrated and nourished as well as being super smooth and easier to style. I think this is the perfect winter mask for my hair as it reduces my scalp’s dry and uncomfortable itchiness and my hair behaves a lot better when it comes to styling.
Whenever I wash my hair I like to use a shampoo and hair mask instead of a shampoo and conditioner as I prefer the more intensive nourishment of a mask and I now use the Catwalk By TIGI Oatmeal & Honey Intense Nourishing Mask every other time I wash my hair as I love how effective it is at leaving my hair and scalp more hydrated.
