Treat your hair to even more argan oil-infused moisture with the Beauty Protector Protect & Oil.

Beauty Protector

Birchbox Breakdown

We have an antiaging regimen for our skin——but we often forget that the years take a toll on our hair too (especially with all the styling and treating we put it through). This nourishing mask, designed by professional stylists and loaded with antioxidants, rejuvenates and powerfully protects our strands——so that youthful glow doesn’'t stop at our hairline, but shines all the way to our (no longer split) ends. Argan oil, honey, amber, and crushed pearls (as though the mask’'s creamy texture wasn’'t proof enough of its luxuriousness) revive strands and preserve their youthful texture and shine. What'’s more, the mask works with all hair types, and is cruelty-free.

How to Use

After shampooing, apply a quarter-sized dollop, focusing on midlengths and ends. Leave on for 5––10 minutes for normal to oily hair and up to 20 minutes for drier hair, and then rinse away.

This is a must have to add a little umph to the Beauty Protector Trio! This 20 min mask smells the same as the rest of the line of products from Beauty Protector. A 20 minute mask that leaves your hair so conditioned and shiny you'll wonder where it's been your whole life! I use it once a week with the rest of the line and noticed improvement to my chemical and heat damaged hair. A little goes a long way!

Beauty Protector Protect & Treat Hair Mask
SampledPurchased

I had my doubts about using a hair mask, but I have to say that I was pretty impressed with this product. My hair takes a real beating between blow drying, flat ironing and hot rollers. My hair was getting that really dry and crispy look. After using the Protect & Treat Hair Mask for about 2 weeks, my hair starting feeling soft and looking healthy again. I would definitely suggest using this product to others.

Great mask

I have light treated hair and I use this mask once a week and my hair seems healthier and definitely smother.
My mom also started using it and her hair stopped falling!
Plus it smells so good!

LOVE THE SMELL!
Purchased

I'm going to be honest...as far as super hydration and silky hair, this is so-so (I've definitely used better), but the smell of this stuff alone is intoxicating. It's like cotton candy for my hair! I only wash twice a week because my hair is long, super thick, curly and over-processed and this stuff smells amazing from the minute I put it on to the minute i rinse it out. I made the mistake of leaving it in my hotel shower recently and I'm kicking myself because I had just opened it, but I'm placing an order asap! Definitely a favorite hair treatment for me!

Ok - not great for my hair
Sampled

This product was okay. I didn't see much a difference using this compared to my normal conditioner though it could be due to my hair texture which is dry and quite coarse.

Love this whole line of hair products! A little of this twice a week and my hair is shiny, soft and no static, even with this cold winter weather.

Wouldn't purchase again
Purchased

I purchased a few masks from the Birchbox store. This one didn't see to have much effect on my hair. I wonder if it would work better if you have your head under heat, but most of us can't easily put our head under a heat lamp or warm hot towel - at that point just pay the $25 for a deep conditioning treatment at a salon! My hair is coarse and dry and the oil-based products have worked much better on it, so it could be my hair type.

Love all beauty protect products
SampledPurchased

This deep conditioner is amazing, just like all the other Beauty Protect products. The scent is super sweet and leaves my hair smelling amazing. I get so many compliments about how great my hair smells, on top of the benefit this conditioner provides by making my hair so soft. I use this about once a week and it leaves my hair so soft and nourished.

Is a decent hair mask
Purchased

I really loved the shampoo and conditioner sample I got in this product line. I bought the full sized mask. It's OK, not bad at all. Not life changing for me either though. Also, it needs to be applied to wet hair, and then later rinsed out. Which means two showers, or wetting first under the faucet and then a shower -- it can be a bit of a hassle.
