I recently returned from an awesome sun-filled week in the Cook Islands, located smack in the middle of the South Pacific ocean. As I knew I’d be in the water and sun most of the time, I packed the Desert Essence Anti-Breakage Hair Mask as one of my KEY essentials to pack along with lots of sunscreen, snacks and bug wipes.  As I gravitate towards natural products, Desert Essence’s botanically based Anti-Breakage Hair Mask was also super choice to bring to an ecologically sensitive area on the planet.

Founded in 1978, Desert Essence is a leader in natural personal care. Their inspiration and ingredients draw from the desert, as it is “a model of pristine balance and sustainability, where limited resources if used responsibly, offer the body and spirit untold benefits.” Using nutrient-rich desert botanicals revered in native cultures for their healing properties, Desert Essence’s body, skin, and hair care products work in harmony with the body to soothe, nurture, and restore. True to its principle, they work to ensure both their products and practices reflect the serious commitment they have made to the health of the planet.

About Desert Essence Anti-Breakage Shampoo and Conditioner

After swimming each day, I would lightly cleanse my hair and then apply the Desert Essence Anti-Breakage Hair Mask, spreading it evenly from root to tip, concentrating on the ends. I would leave the mask on for about 15 minutes. Watching the sunset was an awesome activity to pass the time.

The Anti-Breakage Conditioner is:

• Infused with an exclusive blend of Country Life Maxi-Hair® plus Biotin, this breakthrough formula with Keratin and Pro-Vitamin B5 helps reduce breakage up to 61%.
• Rich in nourishing Jojoba and coconut oils, aloe, and saw palmetto, these ingredients smooth and fortify hair cuticles, and revitalize hair strands to minimize breakage.
• The botanical oils and radish seed extract provide incredible shine.
• The aloe and moisturizing shea butter in the Anti-Breakage Conditioner help detangle and condition hair.

As I have fine color treated hair, I am very prone to breakage so this mask was an absolute LIFE saver! My hair was left shiny, soft and strong each day, despite the sun and sea exposure.

On a regular daily basis, the Desert Essence Smoothing shampoo series is great to maintain healthy, sleek looking hair without any funky buildup. Now that I’m home and back to my regular life (sigh), I’ve been using the Smoothing Shampoo, Conditioner, and Primer and have noticed considerably shinier hair. My family is also enjoying the wonderfully scented quality Desert Essence Products.

If you’re looking to switch up your hair routine and tame of fly-away, fried out hair, I definitely recommend trying out the Desert Essence Professional Shampoos, Conditioners and hair treatments.
