Product Review: Oscar Blandi Trattamento al Fango (Marine Mud Treatment)

I have dry, limp, boring hair. There. I said it. So it was with great delight that I received a sample of Oscar Blandi's Trattmento al Fango (Marine Mud Treatment) on a recent Sephora bender.

I started using this once a week about a month ago, and all I can say is wow. I don't often gush about products (and I might after using them once, but certainly not after using them a bunch of times), but all I can say is that my hair is starting to look really amazing, and I really think it has to do with this product.

Not only is my hair softer, it's more manageable and strangely enough has more body. Seeing as the only thing that has changed in my haircare regimen is this product, I have to chalk it up to the miracle that has come into my life.

And even though it's made out of mud, it smells lovely.

I usually apply it in the shower and leave it on while I do my other bathing ablutions, but I have once tried the "recommended" usage, which is to apply the product, put on a shower cap, and then wrap your head it a hot, wet towel (which felt oddly vulgar). Rinsed it out with cool water and couldn't stop touching my hair.

This product is a lifesaver. And at $26.00USD (Sephora) for 5.3 oz, very reasonable for a haircare product with such an amazing result. The 2.2 oz container I got as a sample is not even halfway empty, and I've been using it weekly for over a month on my (admittedly short) hair.

Rating: Five out of five. I only give things a five out of five if I'm planning on buying them again. This is definitely going into the regular beauty routine.
