The Haircare #8: Taming The Tresses
Thursday, 3 October 2013
I was never fussy when it came to heat-protector, happy to use whatever was to hand, on offer in Boots or sometimes go without as my low maintenance mop (read lazy) doesn't feel much heat these days. Typical, my shower is jam-packed with half used shampoo/conditioner but heat protector? Oops.
For times when I do want to give my hair a good blast of the hairdryer, I've been border-line addicted to Kérastase Ciment Thermique Heat Activated Reconstructing Milk. This smells gorgeous, fresh and fruity?! I apply this to the mid-lengths through to the ends of my hair after conditioning and comb through. The light almost gel-like consistency means that it doesn't way my hair down or make it feel greasy. While my hair isn't in too bad shape, I do have it coloured regularly. Heat activated, it works to add moisture and repair dry weak hair and prevent further damage.
I'm not entirely convinced that these kind of products can repair damaged hair, perhaps the only thing that helps is cutting damaged ends off but as I mentioned this smells fab, adds a touch of TLC and helps tames my tresses. Plus, it makes me feel less guilty about whacking out my straighteners which can only be a good thing right?
