A few weeks ago I attended an event to test some hair products by Klorane- a brand that has been bridging the gap between science and nature for over 45 years! With a wide range of botanical products the company has been working to harvest some of the most nutritive plants and organic ingredients nature has to offer while maintaining conservation and respect for biodiversity and ecosystems.
At the event I had the opportunity to get my hair done by Caroline Bufalini- celebrity hair stylist! Caroline was nice enough to take a break from Paris Fashion Week where Klorane products are frequently used to work on our hair and give us some useful backstage tips. She also composed an individual prescription for the products best suited for my hair type.
Since 1977 the dry shampoo has been one of the brand's most popular items. It was first used in hospitals where nurses needed a product that could cleanse the hair of bedridden patients when water was scarce. Klorane is now widely available and their collections include products for: color radiance, strengthening, oil absorbing, purifying, nourishing, dandruff, hair loss, volume, shine and vitality.
I have the dry shampoo with oat milk formulated with tinted mineral pigments that blend invisibly into dark hair. The shampoo has a fresh, perfume scent that smells great and helps boost volume, decrease the frequency of washing, texturize and extend the life of blow-outs. The moisturizing agents soften and protect while natural ingredients restore freshness and lightness. Infused with highly absorbent micronized powders the shampoo absorbs excess oil and the nozzle sends a sharp blast of spray that efficiently targets the roots. This is excellent to use between wash days and it leaves no build-up, stickiness or grease. I can definitely see why it has become a styling essential in the fashion and beauty industry.
My hair is naturally curly and very long which means it tends to be drier at the ends, oilier at the roots and exposed to heat styling when I prefer a straight, sleek look. Flat irons, curlers and environmental aggressors can lead to dryness, susceptibility to breakage and split ends. Since I like to deep condition my hair every week the Nourish and Repair line is right up my alley.
The repair mask with desert date from the tropical regions of Africa contains a high concentration of fatty acids and proteins that strengthens and restores the hair fiber. The thick, sooth consistency coats each strand and the rich formula regenerates and nourishes dry, damaged hair. Enriched with a botanical restructuring complex the cream deeply penetrates the follicle and fills in gaps between the keratin to help reinforce, hydrate and build resiliency. I leave the mask on for 30 mins and I use steam to help the ingredients absorb more efficiently. After use my hair feels light, soft and bouncy and the effects last for days after treatment! This deep conditioner is wonderful for anyone looking to moisturize and revive their tresses.
The Klorane Leave-in Cream is described as “a true replenishing treatment that instantly beautifies the hair day after day” and I absolutely love it! Whether my style is curly or straight it softens, smoothes and nourishes without causing build-up or greasiness. You can apply the non-sticky formula repeatedly throughout the day without it weighing down your strands and it seals in moisture, helps repair damage, prevents split ends and adds shine and body. It can also be used on both damp and dry hair and it helps reduce fly-aways and frizz. After the drying winter and testing out new hair appliances this is exactly what I needed!
