When it comes to hair care I’ve tried many products but Kerastase is the brand I use most often for daily care and weekly hydration treatments. Much to my delight, the brand has finally released a collection free of silicone, paraben and sulfate, with a formula that is 98% natural. The luxurious blend of hand-pressed coconut and argan oils revitalize and nourish dull, parched strands for a healthy glow and enhanced resiliency. The active ingredients deliver 42 hours of nutrition and 72 hours of frizz control to help your do withstand heat and humidity.
Kerastase is known for their aromatic infusions and the fragrant shampoo perfumes your tresses with a lovely scent. Although it contains mild cleansers with no harsh sulfates, the lather is still rich and invigorating to foam-away product build-up, sweat, pollutants, oil and impurities. My hair and scalp feel thoroughly cleansed from root-to-tip but I do have to follow-up with conditioner to replenish and hydrate. The shampoo retails for $45.00.
The Intense Moisturizing Conditioner ($50.00) works like a charm on my long, thick hair. It rejuvenates and deeply moisturizes to combat dryness, damage, breakage and brittleness – strengthening weak cuticles at their core. I love the rich, creamy texture – it envelops each strand for ultimate hydration and makes hair feel incredibly soft, smooth and silky. The directions indicate a treatment time of 3-5 minutes but I leave it on for 10-15 mins (in the shower) and it makes a great detangler. You can also use it as a deep conditioner/mask and leave it on even longer (depending on your hair type) for even better results.
The collection includes 2 oils enriched with jojoba, rose water, avocado oil, argan and coconut oil to tame frizz, nourish, hydrate, protect and add glossy shine. The larger bottle ($57.00) delivers the oil as a light spray that mists evenly and prepares hair for styling. This reviving formula is great for all hair types including thin hair because it does not make strands limp, heavy or greasy. I can use a generous amount on my lengths and ends without residue accumulation and it improves the appearance of roughness and splits.
The smaller bottle ($60.00) dispenses the oil as a lush liquid with a texture that is a bit denser but not greasy and it can also be used to revitalize and soften the skin. This formula is great for medium-thick hair in need of a serious moisture boost. It quenches dry, damaged strands to reinforce and smooth flyaways with a healing blend. I prefer to apply the oil to damp hair since it seems to absorb more effectively and you can use it to perfume and refresh your mane when you have no time to shampoo.
