When I came across PREP Luxe Salon and their new egg mint hair mask treatment, I was intrigued. What is so special about this egg mask? How is it different from the generic homemade hair masks we find online?
My hair is thick, wavy, and super high maintenance. I’ve tried pretty much every home remedy to help make my hair more manageable and smooth. One of the homemade masks I’ve tried is egg masks. I followed the instructions to the T and no matter how many times I tried out this mask, it just never had the desired result.
At this point, I was so frustrated with my homemade hair mask failures I opted to try PREP Luxe’s one out.
My hairstylist, Maurice, started off by rinsing my hair with warm water. He then poured the egg mask onto my hair. Because I have long, thick hair, my mask needed four eggs in it.
This PREP Luxe mask consists of high-quality freedom range eggs, an in-house customised serum, and a blend of nourishing oils. I need to emphasise on this: the mask smelled absolutely HEAVENLY despite having raw eggs in them.
The mask is then massaged into your hair for a couple of minutes to make sure each strand of hair is blessed with the eggy mixture. After this, my hair was rinsed with lukewarm water and shampooed with Ashley & Co. shampoo.
The shampoo too smelled AMAZING, as its ingredients include orange and lavender essential oils. An Ashley & Co. conditioner with mint, herbs and essential oils was then applied to my hair. Yes, extra goodness.
Every step in the mask process smelled great and I was grateful that I didn’t smell an ounce of egg at all. The essential oils really made me feel like I was relaxing in a spa. My hair smelled insanely fragrant and I felt so refreshed and uplifted walking back to my salon chair. After blow drying my hair into waves, my hair felt absolutely smooth and shiny, which is a total departure from what I’ve gotten from other salons.
As mentioned, I’ve tried out egg masks at home so I do have some comparisons. The price for this service (depending on hair length) ranges from S$65 to S$95. Yes, I know you could try to make this mask at home.
However, every time I’ve tried an egg hair mask on my own, the eggs turn into a weird, tacky texture while I let it sit in my hair- even with the addition of olive or coconut oil. My hair sticks together and because of this, it’s hard to rinse out the mixture from my hair.
On top of that, homemade masks tend to leave your scalp and hair smelling like eggs which of course, isn’t pleasant. I can’t stress this enough, how great my hair smelled after getting PREP Luxe’s egg mint hair mask. My second day hair still smelt like the essential oils!
Overall, I really enjoyed this experience from start to finish. My hair genuinely felt smoother and I actually got compliments for it the next day at work. And no, I’m not getting paid to say this.
One more thing I’d like to add is how PREP Luxe salon provides chemo patients a free head shave. As one of their co-founders had cancer, they can empathise with other patients who are going through the same thing. Click here to find out more.
