When I purchased from Ulta online during their 21 Days of Beauty, they sent along a few samples. Among them was a Hask shampoo and conditioner duo, packets with just enough for one use. Hask has a broad product range: the ones I received were the Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Shampoo and Conditioner with Color Shield Complex. I was immediately intrigued because they advertised “color shield complex”, and I’m always looking for ways to protect my bright red color from fading by washing and also from the sun.
Both products had a light, slightly fruity/melony scent that was barely discernible while using them and that didn’t linger in my hair. The shampoo created plenty of lather, and it rinsed clean. I like a bit of a squeak, but this was very squeaky. In fact, I was concerned that my hair may have been stripped of all its oil. I was happy to follow up with the medium-weight conditioner. I left it on extra long before rinsing it out, hoping it would replace some of what may have been taken out of my hair with the shampoo.
Afterwards, I used my usual Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle Leave-In Conditioner. Then I styled my hair with my blow dryer and flat iron. My hair looked pretty good, though a little fly-away. It felt soft, but not nearly as soft as with other shampoo and conditioner duos I’ve used lately.
I wash my hair every 4 days, but truth be told, I could have washed my hair on day 3 if I had had the time. It is day 4, and my hair needs washing badly.
Would I purchase Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Shampoo & Conditioner? Sadly no. I had been eager to try this brand, but this particular duo didn’t work as well for me as other haircare brands. As I mentioned earlier, Hask has a broad product range so I am willing to try some of their other shampoo and conditioners to see if they work better for me. Hask is an affordable brand so it would be great to find products that suit my hair.
Hask has no sulfates or parabens. It’s cruelty-free. It’s sold at Ulta Beauty and lots of other retailers. The retail price is $5.99 each though it’s available in the $4 range as you’ll notice below.
Have you tried Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Shampoo & Conditioner? What were your results like? Have you had good luck with any other Hask products I should try?
