After shampooing I applied it to my wet hair. The consistency of this deep conditioner is very thick. So thick I was able to put some on my hand, hold my hand upside down and no product came off. My hair loves thick deep conditioners so the product sunk right in.

The instructions said to leave on for 5-10 minutes. It didn’t say anything about covering your head or using heat. I followed the instructions and left it on for 6 minutes. I wasn’t sure how my hair would feel afterward since I typically leave my deep conditioners on much longer, a minimum of 30 minutes, and I use heat to get better penetration.

Well, my concern was for naught. When I rinsed the deep conditioner out my hair felt like butter! Oh...my...goodness! My hair felt so soft and hydrated. Plus, I found that I didn’t need to moisturize and seal my hair as often during the week.

So while my hair felt really good after using the Not Your Mother’s Naturals Matcha Green Tea & Wild Apple Blossom Butter Masque I did kick myself for not leaving it on longer and using heat. My hair would have felt even better.

Review Of Not Your Mother’s Naturals Matcha Green Tea & Wild Apple Blossom Butter Masque | A Relaxed Gal

I only used about half of the packet and had enough left for a second wash day. For my second use, I followed the same routine but Ieft the deep conditioner on longer about 35-40 minutes (lost track of time) and wore my deep conditioning cap to provide some heat.

After I took off the cap and before I stepped into the shower to rinse it out I ran my fingers through my hair. Let me tell you. My hair felt so soft and hydrated I did a little happy dance. And my hair felt just as good after rinsing the deep conditioner out.

Overall the Not Your Mother’s Naturals Matcha Green Tea & Wild Apple Blossom Butter Masque is a really good conditioner. It really hydrates my hair even if I leave it on for 5-10 minutes without heat or 30-40 minutes with heat. It also keeps my hair hydrated through the drying process so I don’t feel a need to use a lot of product on my hair during wash day or in the days that follow.

As of the writing of this post I haven’t decided if the Not Your Mother’s Naturals Matcha Green Tea & Wild Apple Blossom Butter Masque will be a staple deep conditioner of mine but it’s definitely in the running. I have a few more deep conditioners that I want to try and then compare to this one. But this is one that I would recommend and can see myself using again.
