Hask hair care was kind enough to send me the Bamboo Oil Strengthening set through Brandbacker that comes in the cutest drawstring bag.
Here’s a little background on the company!

- Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shine Oil ($2.99)
It seems that they are available at Ulta beauty stores. I’ve seen some items from the brand also at Target.
Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shampoo
The shampoo claims to do the following:
- Reinforces hair strands and nourishes hair
- Protect fragile hair from damage and breakage
- Improves flexibility and prevent split ends
- Uses ProDefense Complex, biotin, and collagen
- For all hair types
Bamboo Oil Strengthening Conditioner
The conditioner claims to do the same as the shampoo. I believe that its necessary to use it in a set to get the most benefit.
Verdict for Shampoo & Conditioner: (4/5) It does seem to do as it claims, reinforcing weak hair. My hair was pretty dry and damaged from blow drying every time I showered which was about 3-4 times a week. After about two uses, my hair did seem to be less fragile and felt stronger. However because my hair is dry, I prefer to use shampoos and conditioners that are more for “smoothing and softening” or keeping it straight. Hask does have a line specifically for what I’m looking for so I might go and buy that set to give it a try. I’m not sure if it helps prevent split ends because I already have split ends.
Bamboo Oil Strengthening Deep Conditioner
The conditioner came in a blue packette. The instructions said to apply on wet clean hair for about 10 minutes, and then rinse. It also states to use only for once or twice a week. I personally found this inconvenient. I don’t really have the time to shower and then wait for 10 minutes to get back in the shower to rinse it off. I have hair masks and other deep conditioners that instructed for only 3-5 minutes which is more ideal for me. It is priced very cheap though. I did give it a try but I think I only left it on for about 5 minutes. It didn’t really seem to do much. The Pantene Deep Conditioner and Aussie 3-Minute Miracle does more in just 3 minutes. (1/5)
Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shine Treatment
This oil claims to be lightweight and alcohol-free and is supposed to instantly absorbing oil provides hair with a luminous glow leaving no greasy residue. I think all it really does is add shine to your hair. I don’t think it contributes to the health of your hair at all. If anything, I had to shower a day earlier because it made my hair a bit oilier. I even tried to use a small amount, just enough for my ends. (4/5) I would say that it does what it claims though.
Overall, I thought the products were different from what I usually use and it really is affordable. If you’re looking for a healthier brand to try out, give Hask a try! I thought the products worked well for it claimed to do. However, I think I will be sticking to my Pantene shampoo and conditioner for now.
