I bought the ikoo Deep Caring Hair Mask Hydrate & Shine through Amazon* after being intrigued with this German brand that very much sounded like Korean.

1. Product description

They say this mask is suitable for all hair types, since hydration and shine is something everyone needs. I found it good for my dry hair and ends.

Key ingredients are camellia oil, macadamia oil and honey extract. They nourish the hair and give silky and shiny result.

Ingredients:
AQUA, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, BEHENTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, TRIETHYLHEXANOIN, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, STEARAMIDOPROPYL DIMETHYLAMINE, COCO-CAPRYLATE/CAPRATE, ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, OLETH-5, DICAPRYLYL CARBONATE, POLYQUATERNIUM-10, SODIUM CHLORIDE, SODIUM ACETATE, POLYQUATERNIUM-11, PHENOXYETHANOL, HYDROGENATED MICROCRYSTALLINE WAX, PARFUM, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, OLUS OIL, CITRIC ACID, MACADAMIA TERNIFOLIA SEED OIL, CAMELLIA OLEIFERA SEED OIL, GLYCINE, GLYCERIN, HONEY EXTRACT, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SORBIC ACID, PROPOLIS EXTRACT, SORBITOL, CAMELLIA SINENSIS LEAF EXTRACT, HAMAMELIS VIRGINIANA WATER, SODIUM BENZOATE, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, HIBISCUS SABDARIFFA FLOWER EXTRACT, ARGANIA SPINOSA KERNEL OIL, ROSA GALLICA FLOWER EXTRACT, ROSA DAMASCENA FLOWER OIL, ALCOHOL DENAT, TUSSILAGO FARFARA FLOWER EXTRACT, ACHILLEA MILLEFOLIUM EXTRACT, CINCHONA SUCCIRUBRA BARK EXTRACT, GARDENIA TAITENSIS FLOWER EXTRACT, DISODIUM EDTA, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, LIMONENE, LINALOOL, SODIUM SULFATE, CI 19140, CI 42051

The mask color is light green, and the scent is amazingly floral. It is not overpowering, it’s just right. And when I use it I feel like I’m in a spa, pampering myself. So I always feel good after using this mask. The scent does not stay on the hair though (like is the case for instance with Kerastase). It soon fades out after you leave the bathroom. But I am fine with it.

The structure is amazing, silky and creamy.

Application 1-2 times weekly.

First I apply my shampoo (Alverde Sensitive). And then I apply the mask. I use it for 5-10 minutes. And then wash out with water.

You only need a little amount to cover the whole hair, so it lasts you a very long time. I use the amount of about the size of 1 chestnut for my mid-bob length hair. And this is more than enough for the effect.

Brand ikoo

  • No animal cruelty (PETA approved).
  • No microplastic
  • Aimed at empowering women.

    I think they have a really good story. They are sort of a niche startup brand from Germany but available around the world. So quality should be high. Not too big, looks like managing sustainable growth. I see some good values in them so I am continuing to follow them and will try out more products in the future and write if I like any.

In the same “infusions range”, in addition to the ikoo Deep Caring Hair Mask Hydrate & Shine there is also:

  1. Color protect & Repair hair mask
  2. Detox & Balance hair mask

Price

It cost me €10.95, and it was cheaper on Amazon than on their website.

It also seemed like a better deal than the ikoo Thermal wrap mask Hydrate and Shine, because you get much more uses and higher quantity of the product. But I assume the wraps are more effective since the heat helps the product penetrate deeper in your hair. So your call
