I been using Vatika’s hair masks for years now. One of my favs is their mask with henna, egg yolk and other amazing ingredients in them. Anyways, when I saw a Black Seed hair mask, I knew I had to try it out. Black seed aka Nigella Sativa is the seed of blessing, a ‘cure all’, a miracle. In Arabic, it’s called Habbatul Barakah. I had done an entire post on Black Seed oil before. Read it to get more detailed information.
The mask comes in a black little tub. It’s sturdy and contains 500gms. The mask itself has a bottle green color. It’s thick yet very easy to apply to the hair. It can be applied after shampooing or normal wash. This mask should be applied from root to tip and be left on for 10 – 15 mins. I personally keep it on for 20 mins. After washing it off and drying off with a towel, my hair feels soft and healthy and also looks shinier. It really nourishes the hair. You can even keep your hair wrapped in a hot towel when the mask is on. However, the mask works well even without the hot towel application.
Black seed has a strong, pungent smell. That’s my experience from using black seed oil. But this mask has a lovely, pleasant smell that lingers on your hair. I highly recommend you try this mask out for deep conditioning your hair. I love it!
Price : AED 25 for a tub containing 500 gms. I got it from Lulu Center. I am not sure if this was the introductory price but definitely check it out.
