A friend recommended me Plum hair mask with olive oil & macadamia that is meant exclusively for chemically treated hair.
Although I found it to be a bit expensive, I gave it a try.
Here is me sharing my experience using Plum hair mask.
Plum Hair Mask Review
When I came across this hair mask by plum, I just knew I had to try it for my chemically treated hair. After all, it claims to add ‘Mega Moisture’ to your hair.
The mask comes in a white tub packaging which I personally find a bit unhygienic. But the packaging looks sleek and is travel-friendly.
The mask has a very thick consistency and smells nice.

How To Use Plum Hair Mask?
As per the instructions on their official website,
Gently wring out excess water from wet or shampooed hair. Take the required amount of mask in the palm and apply generously to hair, focusing on the ends. Try and apply to as many individual strands as possible. Put on a shower cap or wrap a towel and leave on for about 20 minutes (the longer the better) and rinse thoroughly. Gently pat dry with towel and style as desired.
My Experience Using Plum Hair Mask With Olive Oil And Macadamia
I was having really bad after-effects of hair smoothening treatment that too in just two months. I started noticing hair strands everywhere and it was breaking my heart.
That’s when I gave this hair mask for chemically treated hair a try.
As directed by the official plum website, you need to apply this mask once or twice a week and leave it on for about half an hour.
I started using this deep conditioning mask once every week.
After the first time, I noticed the mask wasn’t easy to rinse off. Then I noticed the reason behind it. I applied this hair mask on my hair and forgot about using my shower cap and it dried a bit.
Always cover your hair with a shower cap after applying any hair mask for a longer duration.
From the next time on wards, I was vigilant with my shower cap and faced no such problems.
After rinsing this deep-conditioning olive oil and macadamia hair mask, my hair felt lively and nourished. Not so much like you would notice by the first instance if we cross paths but so much so that my hair wasn’t as dry as it was before.
So far I have used this hair mask 6-7 times and my hair is reacting positively to it.
It hasn’t made a huge difference like I would have wanted to given its ‘mega moisturizing’ claims but it is still a good option to try out. I also haven’t seen any difference in my hair loss after using it. It neither triggered more hair loss nor did it do anything to minimize it.
- Vegan and cruelty-free
- Smells nice
- Travel-friendly packaging
- Easily available
- Easy to use
- Does tame frizzy hair
- Tub packaging is a bit unhygienic
- Doesn’t justify the mega moisturizing claims
This is no doubt a good hair mask that will add moisture to your hair. But it doesn’t do any drastic improvements in your chemically treated hair as much as you would hope given their ‘mega moisture’ claims. But still this is a good deep conditioning hair mask to try. The best of all it is cruelty-free and vegan.
Where To Buy Plum Hair Mask With Olive Oil And Macadamia?
Yay or Nay?
I liked that the mask added a bit of structure and moisture to my hair but it didn’t deliver the results than hoped for. A good hair mask for normal people rather than people with chemically treated hair.
Let me know if you gave this hair mask a try.
