Review: Pureology Superfood Hydrate Treatment
Pureology’s Superfood Hydrate Treatment is a color-care treatment mask, designed to treat even the most dry and brittle hair types in need of moisture and repair.
It can be used on any hair type and leaves your hair feeling and looking soft, shiny, and vibrant after only one use. It also smells like fresh coconuts and lingers through the day, which doesn’t hurt.
While you can use it if you don’t color your hair also, if you do, it helps hold the color treatment for longer without any fading and improves the vibrancy of the pigment, using all natural ingredients.
It is deeply nourishing, and can be used following your regular shampoo and conditioning treatment (or even as an overnight mask if desired).
You you can use it on split ends, roots, or the entire head.
I used this for about 30 minutes following a regular shampoo and conditioning treatment and noticed my hair immediately felt smoother, softer, and appeared healthier and more radiant after only a single use. There was no damage to the coloring of my hair, and if anything, it seemed shinier and glossier.
While I was skeptical at first given the price tag, even with very long hair, I only needed an extremely small amount to condition and treat my entire head of hair (and I’ve said this about no other hair product, ever).
We’re all in need of a boost of radiance and hydration for our locks, color-treated or not, and with this mask, it works for any hair type, and gets the job done in no time.
I was able to eliminate the need for hair serums and oils after using it, and simply let my hair naturally air dry. It truly hadn’t looked so naturally revived and lively in so long, that I’ve become hooked on Pureology’s Hydrate Treatment, and is something I’ll now happily shell out the few extra bucks for.
It’s simply worth it.

It also leaves you smelling like fresh coconuts, which certainly doesn’t hurt.
