For me, on my thin strands, colored and badly damaged by hot tools (in a word: fragile), Money Masque did not disappoint. In the shower, I smoothed a golf ball-sized dollop of shine gel from root to tip and rinsed it off after five minutes. My blonde hair was given new life from the moment I entered the shower until the moment I stepped out, spinning my hair into silk and leaving it shiny, smooth and voluminous. âBecause it’s so light, you can apply the mask from root to tip, unlike heavier treatments, where you could only put it on the tips,â says Appleton.
Since incorporating the mask into my routine, my usual styling routine has been effortless. With healthy hair, even a simple blow-dry gives a good hair day. And week after week, the condition of my hair just kept improving. It feels stronger and I noticed less breakage and fallout.
The same would be true of someone on the other end of the spectrum with thicker, coarser hair. “It’s great for everyone. So for curly hair [folks], [after using the masque] their curls were a lot more defined, and that left the hair looking better, healthier, more supple, “says Appleton.” I wanted a result that, you know, whatever the texture of the hair, than the end result. has bounce and a luxurious shine. ”
And while that’s literally the formula for her million dollar hairstyles, the inspiration for her name began long before Appleton became the man who changed Hollywood’s hair. âThe reason I called it ‘Money Mask’ wasn’t a financial issue,â Appleton said. Seduce. âFor me, when I was nine, I would go to my mom’s house and she would get up and look at herself in the mirror. That’s why I started doing my hair. I could see her shoulders receding. She would stand tall. more confident. ”
It is this memory that inspired Appleton to pursue his long career as a hairdresser and to create this product. âI realized the emotional medicine that you could have by having great hair. And that to me is priceless,â says Appleton. “It’s about the emotional feeling of, you know, feeling good, feeling priceless, feeling unlimitedâ¦ feeling your best with great hair.”
