Mamamia’s Tried and Tested series is your weekly review of the latest to hit our desks in beauty, health and wellness. You won’t find any #sponsored content here, just honest, relatable and independent advice. This week, Senior Lifestyle Writer Amy Clark found an epic $7 hair mask.
I’ll be honest. I haven’t been doing a lot of… things since I started self-isolating four weeks ago.
I’m not working out at home or taking up wholesome hobbies like knitting or baking sourdough. My diet’s never been worse (snacking counts as a meal, yeah?), I can’t remember the last time I wore a bra and I definitely have not watched every show there is on my streaming services.
WATCH: Here’s what each of the star signs have been up to in isolation, post continues after video.
One thing I have been doing, though, is hair masks.
Although now is an excellent time to try training your hair to be less greasy if you’re working from home, I’ve actually been doing the opposite. For me, washing my hair regularly is a small task that makes me feel infinitely fresher and less gremlin-like. Even though my skin has kind of gone to sh*t recently (thanks isolation skin), my hair has never looked better.
I’d like to think that comes down to a new (to me) overnight hair mask: the Sephora Collection Hair Sleeping Mask, $7.

Ugh. Yes, I’m wearing ANOTHER bonnet to bed. This time, it’s a $7 Sephora Collection two-in-one hair sleeping mask. Run it through dirty hair before bed to wake up with the softest hair of your life. ????????♀️ Is a bit gimmicky? Absolutely. Could you do the same thing with conditioner and a shower cap/cling wrap for free? 100 per cent. But did doing this hair mask bring a bit of affordable fun to my day? Shit yeah. ❤️✨
