Kerastase Chroma Protect

March 18, 2008

Kerastase never fails to wow me with their great, effective professional products. I’ve been a huge fan of their Resistance, Reflection and Nutritive lines. All their products smell great, are great to use, and most importantly, works! 

Sometimes when I don’t want to put in any of my styling products that feel a little gunky, I use this fantastic Kerastase leave-in conditioner. It’s actually for coloured hair, but I don’t see why I can’t use it on my uncoloured hair. 
This leave-in conditioner is like a polishing cream, leaving the hair radiant and shiny, without making it greasy. It smells amazing, and never fails to let me feel like I’ve just stepped out of my uptown salon, when in reality, I’ve just stepped out of my home. Simply apply a little bit into the towel-dried hair and just go out! It leaves the hair beautifully moisturized, smelling great, and looking radiant. 

Carita Nutri-Repairing Radiance Hair Mask

August 29, 2007


I am officially crowning this hair mask the best mask ever. Yes, even more so than my oh-so-beloved Kerastase and Alterna hair masks (even though they’re still in my repertoire). This hair mask is formulated for dry or very dry or damaged hair. What it does is that it adds in loads of essential minerals into the hair and makes it as good as new. It’s got microcapsules of essential minerals that beautify the hair, giving it strength, vitality and energy while preserving its natural shine. Also, it has nutri-repair complex (ceramides, rice milk & wild mango butter extract) to help tighten the scales of the hair cuticle and helps to fill in fissures in the hydrolipid film, which protects the hair from dehydration. Sweet almond extract smoothes the hair and restores its softness and shine; honey extract and pro-vitamin B5 soften and help to soothe dry scalps.

This hair mask is rich and silky, and you simply have to slop a little of it all over your hair after shampooing (I like my Alterna Caviar shampoo), and leave it for a little while (I usually leave it for about 10 minutes. Just rinse off after 10minutes, and your hair will be as smooth as a, er, I don’t know – silk? Yes, ok. Silk. Your hair will be as smooth as silk.

Be good and go get this!! (even though this is like the most expensive hair mask ever – 3 times the Kerastase one!!)
