This is some good stuff right here. I think it pairs well with both the shampoo and conditioner they carry. The reconstructive moisture mask left my hair super soft and very manageable. Kind of like food for your hair. I love that they carry it in my local cvs as well. I'm glad I tried it and will definitely be using it quite often. Wish I would have been able to get my hands on this sooner.
Lots of reviewers seem to have an issue with the second ingredient being Cetearyl Alcohol. Cetearyl Alcohol is not rubbing alcohol. When skincare/haircare "experts" are discussing the drying nature of alcohol, they are usually referring to Denatured Alcohol (ethanol). Cetearyl Alcohol is a fatty alcohol derived from coconut or another vegetable oil. It is used widely in *moisturizing* cosmetic products because it is a moisturizing ingredient and is very emollient. Check your moisturizer or lotion ingredients. More likely than not it has either cetearyl, cetyl, or stearyl alcohol in it. It is a fine ingredient to have in a moisturizing hair mask unless you have an allergic or otherwise bad reaction to fatty alcohols.
On to the actual mask review: this product is pretty good for the price. It is not the most moisturizing mask in the world but it is probably the best one at this price point in my view. It's more hydrating than the Verb Ghost Mask but less hydrating than the Pureology one. Unless you have extremely dry or damaged hair, this is a great mask for someone who just likes to do a weekly hydrating mask for a little extra moisture. The smell is present but not extremely offensive. If you are someone who is sensitive to smells, you probably will not enjoy this as much as I do.

This mask is ideal for someone with damaged hair. Apply it once a week and let it on hair for 5-10 minutes after shampooing. Fights frizz and leaves hair so smooth.

I really love this Kristin Ess Reconstructive Moisture Mask. First off, the scent is heavenly, and I'm all about products with great scents. The texture is fantastic, and the packaging makes it a breeze to scoop out from the jar. But the real magic happens when I use it – my hair drinks up the hydration, leaving it smooth and silky. If you're into great scents, easy application, and super-hydrated hair, this mask is a must-try!

Stress has had an extreme effect on my hair, leaving in dry and brittle. In one treatment, my hair was significantly repaired and restored. The fragrance is amazing. A little amount goes a long way. I have long hair, and only needed a very little amount. This will last me a while.

I like this mask. It smelled nice and it was a nice little extra step to do in the shower. I put this on my hair if my hair was looking a little extra dry or frazzled. I think it did overall help with smoothness and shine but it wasn't like a transformation. I would also use this product instead of my normal conditioner when I ran out in the shower one time. It's a nice product but it won't cure your split ends if that's what you are looking for.

This compares to my best high end hair masks. It's been saving my dry ends without weighing my hair down and leaves my hair soft, shiny and smooth.

I did not really like this mask. It felt heavy in my hair but at the same time not very nourishing. This was a gift with purchase and I won't be purchasing a replacement.

The Reconstructive Moisture Mask for hair is a game-changer in my hair care routine. If you're dealing with dry, damaged locks, consider this your hair's superhero. This mask is a lifesaver for restoring moisture and vitality to even the thirstiest strands.
The texture of the mask is rich and creamy, and it spreads easily through the hair. What I love most is that it doesn't weigh down my hair or leave any residue – just pure hydration. After leaving it on for the recommended time, my hair feels unbelievably soft, manageable, and noticeably healthier.

I use this hair mask once a week. I'm a Kristin Ess fan girl and mainly use this on my ends since i have oily roots but as you can see in the second picture my hair looks evenly moisturized and pretty nice without any other products. If you have a busy lifestyle like myself you want something that you can do once in the shower on a Sunday night and not worry about for the rest of the week. This is that product! Smells great, does not weigh down hair. I consider my hair type 2A.

I love this stuff! I have fine hair, but a lot of it and it lacks moisture. My hair loves this stuff and it doesn't leave it feeling greasy. Will be buying another tub when this one runs out!!

I really love this hair mask. I bleach my hair and it takes on some damage but this mask has really helped keep the damage down. It keeps my hair soft and shiny and healthy. I am definitely impressed with this product.

I knew I liked this product but this last week I was on vacation and had to use hotel shampoo and conditioner my hair was a total chaotic mess when I got home I was so upset because I had showered with my normal stuff and my hair was still gross and hard to brush. My second shower I decided I would use Kristin ess hair reconstructive moisture mask because my hair was in complete and desperate need of help. I am completely happy and satisfied with how it has left my hair and relieved that i had this product to help me. My hair feels soft and happy again.

As I continue to use the Reconstructive Moisture Mask, I really appreciate the user-friendly lid. The lid is wide and the logo is textured so the combo makes it easy to open the packaging even with wet hands in the shower. The conditioning level is light. It's great for a mild extra conditioning but I wouldn't reach for it if I needed a lot of repair or high moisture. It's easy to spread in my wet hair. For perspective, I have fine but high density hair and it doesn't weigh it down.

This hair mask was nice to have. It definitely made my hair feel softer and made my curls pop afterward. I also used it on my daughters 4C hair, and it was amazing! It also smells really nice, which is also a plus.The only con that I have, is that it wasn't very thick, so it didn't feel as moisturizing when applying it to the hair.
ella89 from Portland, OR
I love Kristin Ess's products - they always leave my hair feeling so soft and moisturized, and this mask is no exception! My hair definitely needed it and felt so rejuvenated afterward. Would totally recommend to anyone struggling with dryness or color damage!

I have been using the Kristin Ess Hair Reconstructive Moisture Mask for a few months now, and I am absolutely in love with it! My hair is naturally dry and frizzy, but this mask has made it so much softer, more manageable, and less frizzy. I use the mask once a week, and I leave it in for about 15-20 minutes before rinsing it out. After I use it, my hair feels so soft and hydrated. It also looks much shinier and healthier. I love that this mask is sulfate-free and paraben-free. It is also safe for color-treated hair. Overall, I am extremely happy with the Kristin Ess Hair Reconstructive Moisture Mask. It is a great product for anyone with dry, frizzy, or damaged hair. I highly recommend it!

I have a ton of moisturizing hair masks, for the fact I have long thick hair and need to keep it from breaking or falling out. It takes some time to deep condition your hair but it's worth it. Packaging on the item is good in a smaller version.
MalMal from SD
I am a big fan of Kristin Ess hair products and have been using this Reconstructive moisture hair mask weekly for a while now. It is easy to put on and smooth through your hair. It is creamy and stays in place in your hair without dripping. It rinses easily and leaves my hair feeling nice and soft. You can also put it in your hair for extra conditioning for an hour. Great hair mask and will continue to use!
