It’s not often that I splurge on a hair treatment product, but every so often I come across something that is worth it’s weight in gold.
My hair has been bleached at each colour appointment at Oscar Oscar salon, so there is a great deal of damage to treat- in fact, the top of my hair which has had the most repeat bleaching, was starting to look like straw. The colour was fading like crazy at the top too, but that is a saga for another post.
I picked up this Kerastase masque about a month ago at a salon near my work after one of the hairdressers recommended it for my dry, colour treated hair and gave me a sample (it was love at first blowdry). Each time I use it, my hair feels amazing afterwards- shiny, incredibly soft, great body, and no hint of the oiliness or heaviness I often get with using very rich hair treatments. I’m uncertain whether heat makes the product perform better or not on my hair, but I do appreciate the fact that this masque provides thermal protection with heat styling.
Availability: selected salons
Price: varies from $50- 90 a jar. I got mine from Kings at Melbourne Central for $50 (surprisingly this is $16 cheaper than the StrawberryNet price!)
4 agents activated with the addition of heat which enhances the nourishing power.
Gluco-Active Dosage 3: a combination of essential ingredients (carbohydrates, proteins, lipids) for complete nutrition of the hair fibre from root to tip.
A thermo-reactive polymer that treats the fibre: replenishes the lipidic layer and captures the nutritive ingredients at the heart of the hair fibre.
A ceramic Boron Nitride: a thermal insulator that maintains heat inside the hair fibre in order to achieve long-lasting nourishment.
Xylose: a sugar that protects the fibre from the harmful effects of excessive heat and protects the fibre from drying out, enhancing softness and shine.
