Haircare, as I mentioned previously, is something I have been lacking during the pandemic. In the midst of things, it really wasn’t that important, and probably still isn’t. However, since getting a hold of some Frank Body products, it has given me a new-found outlook on looking after my long mane.
The brand prides itself on using natural ingredients, one which is caffeine. It is an anti-oxidant which may promote hair growth and help to fight against free radicals. It also has a high ability to penetrate through the skin barrier, so is used in many of their products.
Caffeinated Hair Mask, 125ml, £12.95
Used a couple of times a week in place of your beloved conditioner, you shampoo hair, towel dry and then slather this through your hair and wait for ten minutes before rinsing. The smell reminded me of cola bottles, which was yummy. I left it on for longer than ten minutes as I did a few odd jobs around the house, but I also like to keep hair masks on for as long as I can. Who doesn’t?
The verdict? I felt my hair was lovely and soft after its first use, plus I loved the scent it left on my hair. I found my hair was also easier to brush, but I’m not sure whether that was from this or there were just less knots than usual(!)
Caffeinated Scalp Scrub, 125ml, £13.95
A scalp scrub is something I have never used before, and never thought about using to be honest. After wetting the hair, you cover the scalp with the scrub and use shampoo to rinse it off. What I do is apply, rinse off with water and then follow up with shampoo twice – and that’s because I always use shampoo twice – a better way to clean your hair.
It takes some getting used to with long hair, as it can feel a bit tricky trying to get it all over the scalp. However, after a few uses, I really do feel like my scalp is in such good shape. Shampooing afterwards almost feels like the scrub is helping the shampoo to penetrate into my hair and scalp further. Also, it has helped with my dry scalp, so that’s a bonus.
