Have you got dry, lifeless hair that needs a little boost? Unfortunately — as we all know — life can really get in the way of having the soft, lustrous mane of your dreams. Heat styling, permanent colour, bleach and even the weather can all take its toll on your hair so it’s important to give back some of that lost moisture and protection! The best way to pamper your locks is with a treatment or mask, and Hair&Me have got you covered with their organic Hair Rejuvenation Treatment*. Hair&Me is a natural hair care company based in Australia and their products are cruelty-free and vegan friendly so definitely check them out at hairandme.com.au.
The Hair Rejuvenation Mask is a natural oil-based treatment containing Coconut Oil, Macadamia Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Jojoba Oil — and I’ve written “Oil” so many times now it’s starting to look like a made-up word! Oil, oil, oil… Anyway, moving on from my nonsense. It claims to strengthen and hydrate your hair from the inside out, moisturising your scalp to fight dandruff and dry skin. It’s designed to be used as a pre-shampoo leave-in treatment that cuts blowdrying time by 30–50%… so does it live up to its promises?

The treatment has a tropical coconut and macadamia smell that makes me dream of warmer weather — damn this Melbourne winter! I left the pouch in the fridge for half an hour prior to application as Hair&Me suggests and it really helped to keep the texture thicker and creamier. I didn’t need to chase little trails of oil down my arm like I’ve had to do with other treatments (hallelujah!) which makes this the easiest application of an oil-based treatment yet. As an added bonus your hands will feel baby soft when you’re done! Application only took a few minutes and once I’d finished coating my hair I popped a cheap shower cap over my head to protect my clothes and sat back and let the treatment work it’s magic.
The minimum time recommended to leave the rejuvenation treatment on is 45 minutes and you can leave it on overnight if you prefer. I got a great result with 6 hours, so if you’re a busy gal you can definitely get away with much less. I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical of Hair&Me’s claims that this could cut my blow drying time in half — but wow! I spent about 5–10 minutes less than normal and my strands were left feeling silky, smooth and hydrated. Speaking of hydrated; my thirsty, dry hair goes through conditioner like nobody’s business but after using this treatment, I ended up needing about half my usual amount of conditioner. If that’s not a definite indicator of my hair being well hydrated and protected, I’m not sure what is!
I’m very happy with the Hair Rejuvenation Treatment, it has definitely lived up to its promises and I have no complaints. The pouch contains 90mls of product which looks like it will last me 2–3 uses (I have medium length fine hair, falling to about mid-chest) but if you have shorter hair you should be able to stretch it out further. My only misgiving is that I have made home-made coconut oil treatments in the past that have given me more uses for a lower price. Home-made treatments, however, require more work on your part to gather the (many) ingredients, try new recipes and then find some way to get the liquid on your head without making a huge mess! So Hair&Me gets a big thumbs-up for convenience and quality but I wouldn’t be able to afford to use it regularly on my budget — and you will want to use it regularly after you’ve felt your silky, frizz-free tresses. (Yes, you can do the Pantene hair flip after using this!)
If you’ve been searching for a non-chemical treatment that can make your hair and scalp feel like new, I definitely recommend heading over to Hair&Me’s website here to take a look at their Hair Rejuvenation Treatment.
