Holllllaaaaaa senioritas! It’s a wonderful week ahead, let’s make the most of it. :*
When in doubt, do a review, lol, I don’t have news about my hair or style so I’m stacking on the reviews.
Let the review begin!
Product: Sofn’free GrowHealthy Nothing But Intense Healing Mask.
Product information: Be honest. You’ve noticed that your hair is thinner, breaks easily and what’s with all the shedding? Time for Sofn’free GroHealthy’s Intense Healing Mask. Made with nothing but simple ingredients, it penetrates deeply to repair, soothe and smooth damaged, brittle hair. In no time, your curls will bounce back with renewed health and vigor.
I liked this product description, like they were marketing the product to me directly.
Product promise: Repairs weak, fragile hair, real help for transitioning.
For all my transitioning sisters, please try this and let’s know if it works for your mane.
Size: 16 oz.
Ingredients: Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Oil, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Fragrance (Parfum), Acetamide MEA, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Panthenol, Propylene Glycol, Sorbitol, Sodium Cocoyl Collagen Amino Acid, Cocoyl Sarcosine, Wheat Germ Acid, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Linolenic Acid, Linoleic Acid, Sulfur, Polysorbate 80, Oleth-10, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycansance, Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, d-Limonene, Linalool, Citral.
Hydrolyzed Keratin is its 11th ingredient so it’s low on protein.
Contains no petrolatum, mineral oil, parabens, sulfates, colorants, phthalates but does have a lot of chemicals.

Smell: It has this slight mint smell, I like it.
Consistency: Like a medium-thick butter, it’s best applied when hair is dripping wet and not damp.
How I use: To DC, I’ve used it alone, I’ve used it mixed with Aphogee Balancing Moisturizer, I’ve used it mixed with honey, EVOO & EVCO. I apply it to damp but slightly wet hair, put on a plastic bag and usually leave it on for a maximum of two hours then rinse.
- The smell! It smells really nice but doesn’t linger.
- I love tubs so the fact this product comes in a tub is a win for me, it just makes accessibility easier.
- It moisturizes my hair to a T.
- I bought this product to strengthen my hair, it did not strengthen my hair at all. I gave this product three tries: alone, mixed with a balancing moisturizer and mixed with honey but it didn’t work at all.
- It does not repair anything, my hair only feels moisturized but not repaired.
- I’m not a fan of the thickness (consistency), sometimes it’s difficult to apply unless mixed with honey.
- It worked best when mixed with honey and etc, it wasn’t all that moisturizing when used alone.
Will I buy again?
For now, no, till they remove that “strengthens” from their label and stick to “moisturizes”, I’d pass.
I feel NH product companies should be true to what they advertise on their products, if it’s a moisturizing product, state it, if it’s a high protein based product, state it still, people who will buy, will buy.
I really wanted this conditioner to work for me in that AB swears by it but I don’t have that kind of energy needed in trying to make a product what it’s not.
If you need a protein based conditioner, I wouldn’t say you shouldn’t buy this but, check for a product with Hydrolyzed Protein (within the first to fifth position) in its ingredient list, however, this is a good moisturizing conditioner.
I honestly can’t recommend this product to someone dealing with breakage or someone who needs a protein treatment/strengthening conditioner.
Have you used Nothing But Intense Healing Mask? Was your experience like mine?
