I'm not the biggest sweets person. I mean, I'm a fan of dessert, but when it comes down to cravings, I usually want something salty. In the middle of the night, I'll wake up and long for tuna ceviche and tortilla chips rather than a cupcake.
That said, there are times when my mouth will water for something sweet. One such occasion was the first time I unscrewed the cap on AG Hair Cosmetics Keratin Repair Reconstruct Intense Anti-Breakage Mask.
The scent of creamy lemon goodness wafted out of the container and my eyes rolled back into my head in a hunger-induced haze. The scent reminded me of one of my favourite desserts, glazed lemon poppyseed loaf, but with a hint more of cake-y buttercream, to which the texture was identical.
I knew not to eat it. I mean, come on. Instead I slathered it onto my damp hair and inhaled deeply while it sunk in, visions of tiny dancing cakes running through my head.
Thankfully, the scent wasn't the only amazing thing about the mask. I was already a fan of AG Hair Cosmetics--their Fast Food Leave-On Conditioner is a mainstay in my routine--and the brand is easy to love thanks to its cruelty-free, paraben-free formulas that, hey, actually do what they say.
The mask is a fantastic smoothing treatment for hair that's been fried and damaged. Rinsing it out, your hair feels like silk. I think a major part of its benefits lie in the fact that it's got chemist-approved ingredient polyquaternium-70, superhero molecules that Marci has noticed great results with, too.
And yes, I've mentioned before that the AG Hair Cosmetics products I've used have all given me gorgeous, healthy hair, but they ALL smell amazing, too.
The citrus-y sweet scent carries on through the whole line, whether it's in their sulfate-free shampoo (great for removing product build-up) or moisturizing, volume-building mousse (scrunch into damp hair for loose, air-dried waves without crunch), the line allows you to have your cake-scented hair and ... eat it too? OK, maybe that's a bad metaphor.
All I'm saying is, satisfy your sweet tooth by sniffing the hair mask and then dig into a big bowl of guac. Best of both worlds. Mmm.
