A 10-minute ‘miracle’ hair mask likened to Olaplex for its moisturising abilities is selling three times more units than normal as beauty lovers stock up on the treatment in isolation.

Founder of Georgiemane, George Papura, created the Australian-made $49.99 product to suit all hair types, and it only takes 10 minutes after applying to see the benefits on both coloured and virgin – or natural – locks. 

‘We’ve been getting smashed the past week (we’ve sold a few hundred today alone), and we’re projected to be out of stock in the next couple of weeks,’ Mr Papura told FEMAIL. 

The brand only launched four months ago but it coincided with a period in history where both women and men can’t get their usual beauty therapies, like laser, false nails and tans.

The Australian government is still allowing its citizens to visit a hair salon but with strict social distancing rules in place, many barbers and shop fronts have closed in a desperate bid to conserve money and resources.

The 10-minute mask is made out of coconut oil, shea butter, aloe vera, grape seed oil and abyssinica oil with claims to leave your tresses nourished and shiny from the inside out.

There are plenty of before and after transformations on social media

You simply need to wash your hair with shampoo, apply Georgiemane from roots to ends of towel-dried hair, relax for 10 minutes before rinsing and drying the hair as you would normally. 

It replaces the need for conditioner and can be applied twice weekly for super lustrous results. 

Fans of the product include The Bachelor star Florence Alexandra and MAFS alum Jules Robinson, with plenty of other people sharing their incredible transformation photos after using the mask on social media.  

‘I really can’t believe how much difference this has made to my hair in the last month of using it,’ one happy customer said.

‘I leave mine in for 10-15 minutes after washing my hair and the results have been absolutely amazing. Before using Georgiemane my hair was very damaged, I had a lot of breakage and now my hair has never felt so good! I’m seeing less hair fall out as well so I’m really happy with this.’

The mask should last two months per tub

A third added: ‘This products works really well on my hair. I’m a natural brunette but I dye it blonde often and this mask makes my hair feel soft and hydrated’.

The brand is hoping to branch out with more haircare staples later in the year, including creating its own shampoo and conditioner.
