Arbonne Fortifying Hair Mask

Along with my delicious sample of Arbonne Vanilla Protein Shake Mix, I received several other Arbonne samples to try out. Today I’ll be reviewing the Fortifying Hair Mask, a product that is a real treat for hair that needs a little extra love.

Key Ingredients (provided at arbonne.com)- “Botanical blend of chamomile flower extract, rosemary leaf extract, sage leaf extract, soy protein; spirulina extract, shea butter.”

None of the current formulations of Arbonne’s products are in the Cosmetics Database, so I’ve linked to each of the key ingredients above. None of the key ingredients have hazard scores above zero, but the key ingredients certainly are not the only ingredients used to make the product. Check out Arbonne’s Ingredient Policy; it eased my mind a little.

*UPDATE: A reader recently shared this pdf with me, and it discloses the full ingredient list for this product. Sadly, they’re nothing to write home about. Check them out for yourself.

Some great things about this product:

1.  Like all Arbonne personal care products, it’s free of petroleum-based ingredients (like Benzene, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Phthalates, and Toluene). It’s also free of PABA and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives.

2. It’s cruelty-free and there are no animal products or animal by-products.

Product Description(also provided at arbonne.com)- “Contains antioxidants, vitamins and minerals with a superb, hydrating formula that helps strengthen, con­dition, repair and revitalize the hair shaft for a lustrous, healthy shine. It’s perfect for a scalp massage and safe for chemically treated hair. Mask can be used on newly colored hair to help seal and protect the cuticle, which helps maintain color.”

Price- Around $30.00 for 4 fl. oz.

Performance- This product didn’t weigh my hair down like hair masks I’ve used in the past, which was great. My hair was soft and manageable after adding a little Jonathan Straightening Lotion and blow drying it, and I thought it looked so pretty I didn’t even straighten it! When using this product, I’d suggest combing it into your wet hair with a wide tooth comb and completely saturating the ends. Wait at least 10 minutes before rinsing. That’s what I did, and I was way into the results:

Wavy Hair

Scent- This scent of this product isn’t very strong, and it smells fruity and slightly medicated. I might also describe it as smelling a little yeasty. I’m into it, but don’t worry if the scent doesn’t sound like your cup of tea. After rinsing, there’s no trace of the scent left at all.

Rating- I’m subtracting 2 points because hard to track down ingredients can be a bit frustrating. 8/10 it is.

Would I purchase this item again? I’d definitely like to see this product’s entire ingredient list before committing, but the performance is fantastic, so most likely!

    Unfortunately, your guess is as good as mine. I never successfully tracked down the ingredients for this product.

    Hi ladies,
    I am an Arbonne independent consultant and have a complete list of ingredients for the entire Arbonne line. Should you want to take a look at it, please contact me below and I can e-mail it to you. It’s in .pdf formatting. I personally am in love with Arbonne’s products. I don’t I love it just to sell it. But I sell it because I love it! If anyone is interested in these safe, botanically-based products, that have no harmful chemicals, and are good for your body, please feel free to contact me. I’d be happy to answer any questions, and even offer some samples for you to try.
