I never used any hair mask, as I never thought it’s necessary plus I wanted to try most of the home remedy posted by Anamika. So this time when we went for the body shop sale my friend saw this mask and literally jumped on it, it seems she was using it for quite some time and oh ya! I didn’t tell you guys….
Body Shop’s Brazil Nut Moisture Mask is Limited Addition,
so it’s not available in shops mostly. She said she was looking for this mask for long time and purchased four tubs of it Ya ! that’s right four…to stock up..you can think of my reaction And she made me and other friend to buy at least one tub each.
Then she just showed me and our other friend few other ladies who got more than 10 tubs of it. Ya! that’s right more than 10!! The shopping bag was full of this mask and this happened on the 1st day of sale around lunch time the stock was almost over, then again on the 2nd day I went to the sale with my other friend (ya ..I know it’s kinda weird but I have promised my friends to go with her… ) and these mask went out of stock the very next day.
Well why I’m writing the story? Just to give you guys the picture that this mask is super hot ….whomever using it they don’t blink eye to purchased again and even to stock it up.

My Experience With Body Shop Brazil Nut Moisture Mask
Before we go over to the mask, let’s find something about Brazil nut.
- Brazil Nut – These nuts are from Brazil as the name says & it occurs as scattered trees in large forests on the banks of the Amazon, Rio Negro, Tapajós, and the Orinoco. Brazil nuts are 18% protein, 13% carbohydrates, and 69% fat. The fat breakdown is roughly 25% saturated, 41% monounsaturated, and 34% polyunsaturated. The saturated fat content of Brazil nuts is among the highest of all nuts. Nutritionally, Brazil nuts are a good source of some vitamins and minerals.
Well why am writing this to if you come across Brazil nut don’t hesitate to buy, you can use it as any other nuts in your cooking/desserts.
The product comes on packaged 200ml/6.4 Oz jar with screw off lid. The cream is very thick, firm and in white colour, once you open the lid and it smells so good, I just loved it and key ingredients is Brazil Nut Oil.
After I damp my hair, I scooped out little of cream which is very thick and applied on my hair from roots to tip and leave it for 1hour. (I don’t normally wrap my hairs in towel).
I use less than say 2 tbsp of cream on each apply as my hair is of medium length. The amount you need may depend on your hair length. The cream gets washed off so easily which I was not expecting, then I shampoo my hair. I don’t use conditioner as it’s already cream right.
Wow moment comes once the hair gets dry, the hair becomes so soft, shiny and eliminates frizz. I apply twice a month so the tub will come long way.
Now I don’t think this actually made a real difference in helping and healing those pesky split ends it just made them less noticeable for a few days. Then again I didn’t expect this to magically heal my dry hair this is an excellent cream, but it doesn’t work miracles!
Overall I would say one can use this cream if your hair lacks lustre but don’t expect wonder from it. But it sure does make hair look shiner, more volume and soft after few use. If you have DRY hair then you can sure try this I’m pity sure you won’t be dis-pointed.
My friends says it also helps to reduce hair loss.
What I Do Not Like About Body Shop’s Brazil Nut Moisture Mask
- If you don’t like nut smell then you might not like this cream.
- The application is little put off, how to wet the hair, apply cream and leave for 15 minutes or say 1 hour? Over night is sure no for me.
- I think this is little on expensive side, a sale purchase sure helps.
