So excited to share with you some Kerastase products I've been trying out for the past few months. I was so excited to have a try and see what I thought. Here is how I got on...
1. Matérialiste Thickening Spray Gel* - This is a volume spray. It uses new technology to thicken the diameter of your hair fibre which gives your hair an over all thicker and fuller appearance. It says that it's suitable for all hair types but best suited to people with thin or 'lack lustre' hair, it also says that it will make your hair shiny too! I have really thick and curly hair but when I blow dry my hair straight I like to have really massive big hair which is why I always add a volume spray before I blow dry it and that's how I used this. When my hair was damp I sprayed this all over my hair and it basically done everything it said it would. My hair felt really, really light and big and not weighed down at all and it did have a nice shine to it. Perfect if you want a big, bouncy movable blow dry. You can buy it on HQ Hair for £19.50
2. Styling Crème de la Crème Blow Dry Cream* - This is for using before you blow dry your hair. This basically does the opposite to what the above product does. This controls your volume to give you a more sleek finish and it takes away your frizz. It also gives you a 'medium hold' which keeps your hair in place and in it's style but also keeps it soft and smooth. So as I said above I have curly hair. I wear it naturally curly nearly all the time. I had been using the spray above a few times in a row to straighten my hair and I wanted to wear it natural and curly again so I had an idea. A lot of my favourite curly creams and serums are just frizz-fighting hold sprays so I thought to myself why not have a go at using this blow dry cream as a curl cream and see what happens as it says it will give you a strong hold which should help my curls keep their shape and fight my frizz to make my curls look sleeker too. So that was last month and I can't even tell you how much I have fallen in love with this product since then. I have used it religiously on my curly hair and its one of the best things for my curls that I have used in a really long time. My hair is big and bouncy, it has barely any frizz and my curls are so defined. I just use a small amount on my hands spread it evenly through my hair and let my hair air dry. I can't urge you enough to give this product a try if you have curly or wavy hair (or obviously if you want to use it the way it was designed on straight hair haha) as it has changed up my hair routine so much. Thank you Kerastase for making my new favourite hair product! You can buy it on HQ Hair for £19.50
3. Elixir Ultime Hair Oil* - This is such a luxe, beautiful product! This is a hair oil that treats, protects and strethens your hair. It also fights frizz, nourishes and boosts shine, so it kinda does everything. You can use this as a pre-shampoo treatment, a pre-blow dry oil, a post blow dry styling spray or just as a hydrating boost throughout the day to your hair. I've been using it pre blow dry and it leaves my hair so silky soft and smooth. I can't wait to start using it as a pre-shampoo treatment when summer comes as my hair can gets a little dryer with the sun and I just know this would be lovely on it then. This is just such a beautiful product. You can buy it on HQ Hair for £37.00
4. Styling Spray à Porter *- If you want that surfer girl, beach hair then this is your new best friend. This is Kerastase's beach spray. Along side their other ingredients it also has mineral salt in it which is responsible for giving your hair that 'Just out the ocean' look. It gives your hair a semi-matte finish, protects it from heat and leaves it soft too. I have used this so much since I got it. This is what I'm wearing in the above pictures. I use this when I want my curls to drop a bit and be looser and when I don't mind my hair having its own natural frizz. I love how big this makes my hair and how effortless the curls and waves look. To get the above look I just sprayed this on my wet hair and then let it dry naturally. As with all salt sprays you will encounter some frizz as that is the whole point in your hair looking beachy I guess, which is what I love. What I would say is having used a ton of these sprays this one is so light on my hair and its not sticky at all. I really like Bumble and Bumbles seas salt spray and this really reminded me of it too. You can buy it on HQ Hair for £21.00
I hope you liked this little Kerastase haul. I am so happy that I have tried some of their products and I am now a big fan. I'm off to buy the blow dry cream in bulk for my curls haha.....
