The good folks at @0.8l_usa sent me a free ten pack of the Smart Hair Mask Magic Steam by Repiel. Each mask is individually packaged. It's shaped like a shower cap without elastic basically. You apply the mask to shampooed hair that's been lightly towel dried. The premise is that you pile your hair up, place inside this cap, and use the attached tape strip to secure the excess cap material for a snug fit. The mask cream is inside the cap and should steam up when exposed to the damp hair, creating a warm steam effect.
My beautiful 9 year old daughter and I both tried the mask. Her hair is naturally curly and a good bit frizzy. My hair is a mismatched collection of random textures and levels of coarseness varies greatly from hair to hair.
We both applied the masks correctly and left them on 10 to 15 minutes before giving a nice rinse. Unfortunately neither of us felt any warmth or any steam. I really enjoy steam masks so I was disappointed. We both scrunched the cap into our hair to get the most out of the masks and had great hopes!
The mask did help her frizz a little bit. Nothing miraculous. My hair felt like straw after using the mask. Although it's not an included instruction, I had my condition my hair after rinsing the mask. I wasn't able to brush through it unless I conditioned.
So, the whole tl;dr is this - its not for me. My daughter didn't love it either.
That being said, just like all skin reacts differently, so does all hair. What doesn't work for me, may give you spun silk hair.
