My Review of HASK Mint Almond Oil Thickening Hair Care Collection

I received these product for review, however all opinions are my own.

After trying and loving HASK's Coconut Oil Collection, I was eager to try out their Mint Almond Oil Thickening Collection.

Over the past couple months I have noticed that my hair is thinning out. It's not shocking since I am getting older and after all the coloring and highlighting treatments I have done in the past two years. Before I would have never needed a thickening or volumizing product, but now I really need help for my flat, lifeless hair.

HASK was nice enough to send me their Mint Almond Oil Thickening Shampoo, Mint Almond Oil Thickening Conditioner, and their Mint Almond Oil Root Thickening Spray.

I have to admit that I was doubtful as to whether these product would work and how a product could thicken my hair. I had no doubt it might be able to make it look thicker, but I was skeptical that it could make it actually feel thicker. I was wrong.

After using just the shampoo and conditioner, my hair not only felt nourished, it actually felt thicker. Before blow-drying, I sprayed the root thickening spray. Once my hair was dry and straightened, it looked fuller and it had wonderful volume.  When I gathered my hair it into a bunch at the nape of my neck it felt noticeably thicker than it did before I washed it. I am honestly amazed at the difference these products made, especially since I was so skeptical in the beginning.

The only drawback to the products for me was the smell. All 3 products have a minty vanilla smell and I am not a fan of vanilla scented anything. However,a it wasn't strong enough that I really noticed it throughout the day.

Another important note about HASK is that, as a company, they are dedicated to being cruelty-free and all of their products are free of parabens, silicones, and sulfates.

All in all, I will be using these products again and I recommend them if you want your hair to feel and look thicker or fuller.

In The Dark

1| On Wednesday night the house lost power for 4 hours. There were some really bad storms and apparently a tree knocked down some lines. Of course it had to happen while David was out of town. Luckily I went on a candle making spree a few years ago so I was well supplied. They burn for about 50 hours so I felt good knowing I wouldn't run out of light any time soon. Since I was home alone without TV or internet,  and no good book to read, I pulled out my yarn at started to crochet. I guess it's not so different from what people probably did 150 years ago.


2| My case ended yesterday and since I work on a case by case basis, I have a break from work until the next case comes along. I'm actually looking forward to some time off. The past year has been a whirlwind at work and I feel like I can finally catch my breath. I plan on enjoying my time off crafting, working on the house, and getting some much needed sleep. Hopefully the break won't be TOO long because I have bills to pay.

3| It's good I'm going to be home more because Bernie is being a total asshole with the cats and I need to work with him. He loves to chase them and can get pretty aggressive. I have no doubt the cats would win in a fight, but to keep him and the cats calm, the dogs aren't allowed upstairs. It makes me sad the cats are too afraid to come down and that the dogs cant be upstairs with us at night. If you have any tips on how to make a new dog and cats co-exist without constant chaos, I'd really appreciate hearing them!

4| I shopped my first LuLaroe pop-up sale last night. I had never even heard of the company before a friend invited me to the event. Wanting to support her, I joined and boy was it an experience. It was every woman for herself fighting to be the first to comment "sold" on a picture of a piece of clothing. I managed to snag a skirt and won a pair of leggings. I have no clue if the skirt will even fit, so here's to hoping. I have to admit, from what I've seen researching online, I do like the silhouette and style of some of their clothes, but most of the fabrics and prints are a bit too crazy for me. I'm curious to see what the clothes are like in person.

5| I'm going to break out the juicer today. I've juiced in the past and I miss it. I stopped when my work schedule got crazy because it's pretty time consuming and since the nutrients in the juice only last so long and you have to do it pretty frequently. I'm excited to go buy ingredients and make a fresh batch today!

My Review of the HASK Coconut Oil Nourishing Hair Care Collection

I received these products for review, however all opinions are my own.

If you have been in Ulta lately, you have probably seen all the displays for HASK products. Those displays caught my interest, so when I was offered the chance to try out their Coconut Oil Nourishing collection and do a review, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. I am always on the hunt for great new hair products and the Hask did not disappoint.

I have very dry, frizzy, and damaged hair. Needless to say, I need a very gentle but effective shampoo and a very nourishing conditioner. Two other requirements I have for ALL beauty product are that they be cruelty free and that they don’t contain harsh ingredients like silicones, parabens, or sulfates.

Thankfully, HASK is a company that is dedicated to being cruelty free and all of their products are free of the above mentioned silicones, parabens, and sulfates.

HASK was nice enough to send me the following products to try out:

Monoi Coconut Oil Nourishing Shampoo: This shampoo is luxurious and does a great job cleansing. The only downside is that does leave my hair feeling a little dry or stripped. It's not as gentle or nourishing as I'd like for my very dry hair.

Monoi Coconut Oil Nourishing Conditioner: The conditioner makes up for anything that is lacking in the shampoo. It is rich, thick, and creamy. It really sticks to my strands and isn't drippy like other conditioners. The bottle says to leave the conditioner on for 1-2 minutes and by the time I wash it off, my hair feels soft and smooth. Any feeling of dryness from the shampoo is long gone.

Monoi Coconut Oil Nourishing Deep Conditioner: I love a good deep conditioning treatment, and this one was no exception. I used it after getting my hair highlighted to give my locks some extra TLC. I left it on for 10 minutes while relaxing in a bubble bath and it left my hair feeling rich and soft.

Monoi Coconut Oil Shine Treatment: This may be my favorite product from the entire collection. I apply it after styling my hair to give it shine, to help fight any static in the cold, dry weather, and to keep any fly-aways in place. I use a small amount, less than the size of a dime, and run it through my hair. It leaves my hair with a wonderful shine and doesn't weigh it down or make it look greasy.

One other thing I want to say about all these products is that they smell absolutely amazing. They make me feel like I am sitting on a tropical island soaking up the sun, but not in a fake Bath and Body Works coconut way. This is the real thing. It lingers throughout the day, but not in an obnoxious way that makes you want to wash your hair because you are sick of the smell.

The Coconut Oil Nourishing collection is a hydrating, gentle, and indulgent line of products that will leave your hair feeling softer and healthier.
