Product Review: Mizani Supreme Oil Satin Crème Moisturizing Mask

Price: $20.50 for 8 oz jar at Ulta.

Purchased At: I received this product for review, but it can be found in Ulta and online.

Promises: Silicone-free formula, rich in natural oils (penetrating Rice Bran, Argan and Avocado Oils) and shea butter for intense penetration and conditioning. Restores natural softness and conditions for better manageability when styling. Helps protect hair from dryness and brittleness that cause breakage. Does not weigh hair down even on finer hair types.

Directions: Distribute generously on wet hair, leave on 3-5 minutes, rinse.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Laureth-2, Polyquaternium-37, Paraffinum Liquidum/Mineral Oil, Parfum/Fragrance, PEG-150/Stearyl Alcohol/SMDI Copolymer, Methylparaben, Oryza Sativa Bran Oil/Rice Bran Oil, PPG-1 Trideceth-6, Argania Spinosa Oil/Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Persea Gratissima Oil/Avocado Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter/Shea Butter, Hexyl Cinnamal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Coumarin

My Assessment: Up-front, I'm not a fan. I was expecting a lot more from this conditioner. I've used it both to deep condition and to pre-poo. I used it on a normal wash day, deep conditioning with it for an hour under my heating cap. Because of its thin consistency (shown below slipping off my finger), it just didn't feel very "deep condition-y" as I was applying it. It didn't sink into my hair the way I prefer my conditioners to... it kind of just sat on my strands. It was very easy to rinse it out of my hair but once fully rinsed, my hair didn't feel all that moisturized. I ended up grabbing another deep conditioner and applying that to my hair after I rinsed out the Mizani SOMask because I was worried my hair wouldn't be adequately moisturized once dry. As a pre-poo, it worked better... I think because I applied it to dry hair. After rinsing it out, my hair felt softer than it was when I used it as a deep conditioner but something that's priced at $20.50 should wow me, and it didn't. As for the fragrance - it has a very light, perfume-y scent that did not linger in my hair.

Overall, I wouldn't purchase, especially not at $20.50. This is the shortest review I've written in a while haha but I really didn't find anything I really liked about it :/

    I don't understand what makes them so pricey, not like there was gold on the bottle ....
    You should try to sell it to someone you know or even on your website

  2. I have a question about your pre-poo. Why the hair trigger on your scalp and the safflower oil on your length?

    1. Hair Trigger contains black tea, onion and garlic - which help with shedding. Safflower is packed with ceramides so I like to apply it to the length of my hair, my hair loves ceramides.

    1. Thanks. My winter regimen doesn't change much. The only thing I try to avoid using before going outside are products that contain a lot of glycerin. I don't use weaves to protective styles, I bun nearly every day. When it gets really dry in my home, I use a humidifier to add moisture to the air. Here's a link to a post on winterizing your regimen: http://www.justgrowalready.com/2012/12/how-to-winterize-your-hair-regimen.html

  4. I have used the Mizani Thermasmooth conditioner and found it's conditioning when the hair is recently relaxed but not in between touch ups. I found it worked better as a pre-poo which like you said not worth it for the money.

  5. I bought this expensive conditioner because Mizani is a good brand but sorry it just dry my hair and make my hairs shedding like nothing else. Juste don't buy this stuff there is better things less expensive which really moisturize your hair.
