Review: HASK Charcoal Purifying Hair Care

Woop woop! HASK was generous enough to provide another set of hair care products for me to review! This time, a charcoal-based purifying set. I’ve been super interested in the charcoal trend (face masks, toothpastes, etc), and with summer coming up quickly (and the sunscreen, pool/lake water, and other outdoorsy things that go along with it…) it’s probably a good thing I’ll have a go-to product to make sure my hair is as happy as a clam 🙂


I’ve used a couple of other clarifying products that dried out my hair and scalp, but after almost a week of using HASK’s purifying hair care set I’ve only noticed that my hair is shinier, less frizzy, and feels a bit less weighed down – all good things! It also doesn’t help that my hair is at that annoying length right now where it doesn’t want to behave, so anything that makes it look a bit better gets a thumbs up in my book 🙂 Sometimes a drastic, noticeable difference isn’t what you need for a product to do its job well!


From HASK’s website: Whether you rely on dry shampoo to maintain your weekly blowouts or reach for sprays and gels regularly, overdoing it with product can create build-up that weighs your hair down and can seriously cramp your style. Charcoal, a hero ingredient derived from coconut shells in the Philippines, acts as a magnet and attracts and removes impurities – like product build-up – so you are left with hair that is full of body and shine.

While the charcoal line of products doesn’t have the delicious sugar cookie smell of the moisturizing macadamia line, or the refreshing ‘wake me up’ smell of the thickening almond oil line, it does have a pleasant light citrus scent. It isn’t too overpowering, and definitely plays into the purifying/clarifying aspect of the line – as it should!

This is how house thangsss make me feel. At least my hair is fresh and clean ;)
This is how house thangsss make me feel. At least my hair is fresh and clean 😉 Not that this picture really makes it look that way. I promise it is! The more I look at it actually, the stranger this picture looks. Oh well. Very accurate depiction of my right now.

I’ve seriously been beyond happy with every product HASK has sent me. They don’t test their products on animals, and are free of sulfates, parabens, drying alcohol and artificial colors. I’m not even really one to avoid those things, but I do feel better knowing what I’m using is thoughtfully made 🙂 My only gripe, which has been a gripe since I was first introduced to the HASK brand, is the use of Papyrus. But I suppose I can continue to look past that – plus I usually shower without contacts in, so I can’t see it anyway! Heh.

You can find this line, as well as all of HASK’s other lines on Ulta’s website for only $5.99 each! Doesn’t get better than that.
