For those who follow me on social media, you may be aware that I recently got my hair re-highlighted. The process of bleaching ones hair can really strip it of life and hydration so I immediately needed to invest in some new hair care products. I bought all of these products from Feel Unique but they can also be found in many high street salons. My hair is medium thick, wavy, frizzy, unruly and the ends are very dry and damaged.
Kérastase always deliver on their claims and so I chose the Kérastase Resistance Sérum Thérapiste. This is a hair serum to be applied to wet or dry hair which claims to protect against heat damage and seal split ends to improve smoothness of the hair shaft. The product dispenses from a dual pump, one with a cream and the other is an oil which you mix in your palms and apply through the mid-lengths and ends of the hair. I use around 3 pumps for the whole of my hair before blow drying and straightening it. I’ve found that this product improves the appearance of my split ends and gives my hair a lot of shine without weighing it down. It is a great product to use when I’m straightening my hair as it works with the heat to smooth the hair shaft giving very professional results, however because of the price I’m less inclined to use it day-t0-day. Also, like all Kérastase products, it leaves my hair smelling like I just like the hair salon.
A day-to-day option for me is the Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence. I use the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer regularly so I really trust this brand. The Daily Damage Defence spray is your classic leave in conditioner spray that adds elasticity and provides defence from daily heat styling, breakage and environmental effects. It is designed for all hair types for use on wet hair after washing or into dry hair to remove frizz and static. This is probably one of the best heat defense sprays I’ve used to date. I spray a few pumps of this through wet hair before blow drying and it reduces frizz, adds shine whilst adding bounce and bounce. It makes my hair really manageable for day-to-day styling.
For when I’m wearing my hair in a curlier style or when the weather is particularly humid I always need a bit more frizz control. I’ve had my eye on this brand for a long time so I thought to pick up two of their products. Firstly the Moroccanoil Frizz Control Spray is a fantastic product for doing exactly what it says on the packaging. When I spray my hair with this product it immediately removes all frizz and it prevents it from forming again in adverse weather conditions. It doesn’t provide any heat protection so I use it in conjunction with a heat-spray. The formula also contains argan oil and vitamin E to deeply condition the hair.
The product I want to rave about however is the Moroccanoil treatment. This is a hair treatment oil containing argan oil and vitamins which can be used in wet hair for conditioning and for styling after it has been dried. This hair oil is INCREDIBLE for giving me smooth, luscious locks. I will say that if you have thin hair you should probably avoid this because it’s quite a heavy, thick oil. I’m aware that a light version is available too but I can’t attest to whether it works as well. Nonetheless, due to this product alone I have been able to wear my hair completely naturally which is something I haven’t done in years. It helps define curls and waves, removes all fly-away and frizz and gives you that hair you just want to run your fingers through!
