Review: Etude House Silk Scarf Hair Moist Pack

Next up on my list of Asian beauty haul reviews is this deep conditioning hair mask! This is from the Etude House Silk Scarf line and this is the Etude House Silk Scarf Hair Moist Pack. I really don't do much with my hair, never use heat or sprays or anything, heck I don't even brush it more than once or twice a week. I'm really not kidding here. I think it's beautiful left alone so I never fuss with it, but the two products I will go for is dry shampoo and hair masks! Naturally this is why I picked this up, also because I knew I grabbed one too many skin treatments so I needed something different to round out the haul.

This moist pack (that name makes me shudder) is a specially formulated oil complex that is said to intensively resort very dry and damaged hair while minimizing breakage while maximizing manageability. It can be used once or twice a week and is applied in place of your normal hair conditioner after you shampoo. While I do not have extremely dry or damaged hair, I have used enough hair masks to know the difference between an effective and non-effective one so stick with me!

First off the packaging is adorable. Points for being a flip top instead of a screw top because if you've ever struggled with closing one of those guys up when your hand is slick with conditioner, it's pretty much impossible without dropping either the jar or the glob of product you have and wasting one of them. It's a very light floral scent with just a hint of fruitiness, definitely something I can get on board with, and it isn't a scent that lingers or smells overly artificial or chemical. It is a milky white cream that has the consistency of a standard hair conditioner, possibly a tad thinner.

One palm-full is enough for me to cover the ends plus a little more and this stuff is easy to work into your hair due to the thinner consistency, however that also makes it easier to slip off your hair and go down the drain. I advice taking just small amounts to work into your hair to ensure minimal waste in this process.
There are some hair masks you can put in your hair and instantly as you rinse it out you can feel your hair is softer, unfortunately this is not one of those. Honestly I'm not impressed with the results of this moist pack, it left my hair feeling a little tacky and not as soft as I hoped it would be. I also found that my hair got that dirty feeling a lot faster and I feel like it was just on par with a normal hair conditioner. I saw no deep nourishing benefits and if anything it left my hair a little less moisturized.

Bottom line this isn't something I would suggest. I don't feel like it lived up to all its claims and failed at even the basic duty of conditioning hair. I do hear that the Silk Scar Hair Treatment is wonderful though and it's something I plan on getting my hands on so I can compare it myself!

  1. Ugh what a bummer that it doesn't work so well- I was SOLD when I saw the flip top LOL. I totally avoid hair masks in jars because it's such a pain in the butt to unscrew/screw back on when you're in the shower. I always end up getting water in the container and it's just a big ol' mess. I do have the Hair Treatment and haven't tried it yet, so I think it'll be next on my list of hair stuff to try!
