One of my favorite things about the Dae Stargloss Shine Treatment is that it’s meant to be used as a pre-wash step. Whereas most masks are used in the shower, after you’ve already shampooed your hair, this one is applied to dry hair before you even step into your tub. Yes, you’re still waiting the same 20 minutes for it to do its job, but I liked that I could just plop on the mask, clip my hair up and continue working or doing chores around the house, as opposed to standing around in the shower wasting water. (Something I am extra conscious about living in Southern California.)
I also really liked the thick, creamy texture of the treatment because it spread nicely and coated my hair without running or dripping down my back. To give you a sense of how thick it is, I’d say it has the viscosity of a rich buttercream frosting.
Lastly, because I don’t wash my hair every day, I’m especially picky about scent in my hair products. I want everything that touches my hair to have a fresh fragrance. The Dae Stargloss Shine Treatment has crisp, juicy notes of prickly pear, mandarin and magnolia, a sweet blend that the brand describes as “the aroma of desert romance in full bloom.” I don’t even know what that means, but I want my hair to smell like it. (OK, I just took a quick whiff of my hair and I’d say it smells pretty darn romantic.)
