Description: A nourishing treatment for fine hair, it â€œprovides an optimal blend of lipids, proteins and glucose to help restore the nourishment balance of the hair fibre. Hair should be transformed into silky to touch, softer, shinier and more supple. £24.00 for 200ml
Application: Can use this hair mask as either a normal conditioner or as a conditioning treatment. Just apply like a normal conditioner after shampooing to â€œnourish dry and extremely sensitised hair. Or leave on for 5 minutes for more intense conditioning.
The look: A nice looking pot, it looks quite expensive and stylish. The product itself is just a white gloopy substance.
The smell: It smells a little like a body moisturiser, not unpleasant but it isn’t one that has a fragrant scent, which is good news for those with sensitive skins.
Result: Applied as instructed, it went on easily and I welcomed the lack of scent. After washing it out, my hair was instantly detangled and felt cleaner and softer. After drying, my hair looked shiny and stronger, it was soft and in perfect condition.
Overall: A wonder mask, not the most cost effective, but it does what it says on the pot. My hair was instantly transformed, I also tried it in replace for my usual conditioner and found it to be perfect, it didn’t weigh the hair down but left it glossy and strong.
The brand: Part of the L’Oreal group, Kerastase is a hairdressers favourite and you’ll find it stocked in top salons including Trevor Sorbie, Charles Worthington and Richard Ward. It claims to be a scientific approach to hair care, so expect to see lots of big science words and biological terms like lipids and glucose. They do however aim to treat hair issues such as dandruff, and oily scalps.
