Even though I wouldn’t consider myself a hair care expert, I’ve tried to learn as much as I can about it (especially before purchasing products). Remember that moment from Lizzie Mcguire when Ethan Craft dishes his hair regimen tips that he “rinses but doesn’t repeat”? While his advice wasn’t super helpful, I hope that this review post will be, so here it goes! I received this collection from HASK for free in exchange for writing a review on the blog. All opinions are my own.
HASK’S New Biotin Boost Thickening Collection
I recently got a balayage ombre done by one of my favorite hair stylists in Austin. I haven’t dyed my hair in a couple of years because it tends to make it pretty dry on the ends and pretty much unmanageable if I don’t have any kind of conditioning spray. Luckily, I had some of these HASK products to help me out. For those of you that aren’t as familiar with HASK, their hair care products are generally used as intensive conditioning treatments to repair and restore chemically treated or damaged hair. At first, I was pretty skeptical, as I’ve bought my fair share of hair products over the years. However, this HASK set perfectly met all my needs.
While I still use a conditioning detangler regardless, adding this HASK collection definitely made my hair much easier to manage and added an extra boost to it, too! Normally, I have very fine, straight hair, so this collection was definitely something I needed to try out for myself. Also, I really appreciated the nice scent. There’s nothing like hopping out of a shower and feeling so refreshed and well-groomed.
Additionally, it helped give my hair some extra volume with those curls. What exactly gives it that volume you may ask? Well, HASK combined three main ingredients to give your hair that extra bounce: biotin, collagen, and coffee. They added biotin for volume and maintaining healthy hair, coffee for stimulating hair follicles to boost strands, and collagen to help strengthen hair and to prevent hair breakage or damage.
How-To: Apply Steps for Biotin Boost Thickening Collection
- Apply biotin boost thickening shampoo to wet hair
- Massage and lather into hair
- Rinse biotin boost thickening shampoo
- Apply biotin boots thickening conditioner
- Leave in hair for 1-2 minutes and then rinse thoroughly
- Apply biotin boost thickening cream to towel-dry hair just below the roots to ends
- Blow dry and voila!
While these steps are very straight forward, I actually had to look up step #6 because I didn’t know the best way of applying the thickening cream. So, I decided to list them all on here just for reference!
More Info, Recommendation, Review Cont’d
While you could use each bottle separately (and not necessarily need the entire kit), HASK recommends using all three for the most optimal results. However, you definitely could just get only what you need! Even though I applied all three for the purpose of this post, I would generally only use the conditioner or thickening cream because I have a prescription shampoo I use to help my scalp. I tried all of the biotin boost thickening collection multiple times, and still received the same results, which was awesome! Although you can use this regimen as much or as little as you’d like, I tried it around three times in one week and had a great overall experience. My hair felt lighter, not greasy, and super soft at the ends (which is where my hair usually is super dry)!
Another attribute I like about this HASK collection is that it’s free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors (aka all of the ingredients that are bad for your hair and make it dry out). They’re also cruelty-free, so they do not test on animals! YASSS. If you want to find out more about this collection, check out other reviews, or purchase this product, it’s all available at ULTA beauty!
