For the past few months, we’ve reviewed skin and hair care products that can be very useful to triathletes. Here’s a quick review of some of our recent reviews:
Today, we’ll take a final look at a hair product we’ve been testing for a few months. Back in August we first reviewed the L’Oreal EverPure Rosemary Deep Restorative Masque. This masque is designed for seriously damaged hair or, in our case, the hair of a triathlete. The link above will take you to Amazon.com where you can purchase this masque for about $5, but we picked our samples up at WalMart for less than $4.
About L’Oreal EverPure Rosemary Deep Restorative Masque:
This is a serious product for serious haircare. The L’Oreal EverPure Rosemary Deep Restorative Masque is 100% Vegan and the main ingredient is regular water. The masque is thick, the consistency of heavy body lotion, and has a pleasant natural smell. It does smell a bit like rosemary, but not completely. The masque is sulfate-free. Sulfates, generally found in shampoos and other detergents, can damage your hair and damage any coloring you might use in your hair.
Testing L’Oreal EverPure Rosemary Deep Restorative Masque:
During our Ironman training program, we spent quite a few hours a week in the pool. We chose not to use this masque after every swim because it’s very thick and would cause some serious build-up if used too frequently. Generally, we’d apply the masque after swimming more than 2 hours in two days.
We used the product according to it’s directions. We apply the product and leave it in for 3 to 5 minutes before rinsing the product.
Final Thoughts on L’Oreal EverPure Rosemary Deep Restorative Masque:
As we mentioned in the first review, this masque truly softens hair, though it gets a bit weighted down. The masque is best used when you are doing serious swimming for multiple days, not for the one-off swimmer.
We love that the rosemary scent is powerful enough to block the smell of chlorine, but not so powerful as to make you smell like a spice rack. Though this is clearly a product targeted for women and has a bit of a perfume odor, the scent is not so feminine as to prevent male use.
We found this product to do an excellent job restoring all types of hair after extensive exposure to chlorine. For less than a fiver, this masque provides nourishment, body, and moisture to your hair.
