Drybar Mudslide Nourishing Hair Mask: Review

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links and the products featured were provided for review.
Earlier in 2015, the beloved California-based blowout salon Drybar has finally arrived at Sephora. With a full range of luxury hair care products, Drybar is all about healthy hair and fabulous blowouts. I've been testing out some of the brand's bestsellers and today I have a full review of the Drybar Mudslight Nourishing Hair Mask ($47.50 CAD). To read on, click.......
Drybar Mudslide Nourishing Hair Mask
Housed in a fancy and sturdy clear plastic tub, the Mudslide Nourishing Hair Mask is formulated with several key ingredients: moringa seed oil for hydration, keratin and protein for strength, and yuzu oil for smoothness. Despite its name, the mask actually has a runny and white formulation with a nice and light fragrance.

The mask is designed to be applied after shampooing. I leave it on for about five minutes but if you have more time on your hands, you can leave it on for up to ten minutes. What I like about this mask is that it leaves my hair feeling very strong and thick. It almost feels as if this were some sort of protein drink for my hair that pumps up each strand to its maximum capacity. Also, the mask doesn't weight down my hair and it leaves everything feeling hydrated.
With that said, there is a big drawback. I notice that after each use, my hair tangles a lot more than it would otherwise (ex. if I used a shampoo alone or a shampoo and a conditioner). Something about this makes it really difficult for me to run my fingers through my hair. I speculate that some component of the mask coats each individual hair which makes them more likely to adhere to each other.
It sounds silly but I hate it when I cannot run my fingers through my hair without them getting stuck. So this mask is a deal-break despite the fact it makes everything feel super strong and protected. However, different hair types might react differently to this product so I would still recommend trying it if you don't mind the steep price tag.

Drybar is available online and in stores at Sephora and Nordstrom.
