As you may remember, my salon started carrying the pricey Kerastase product line. I bought the Oleo serum and vowed to use every amber drop before I bought any other Kerastase products.
Then my stylist Claire, who is a huge enabler when it comes to my product addiction, showed me her favourite product from this line. Her words.. 'this is like liquid gold around here, we go thru tube after tube and everyone raves about it'. So she proceeded to use it on my hair and of course I felt like I couldn't walk out without it.
I was still wavering a little and then I smelled it. Sigh. It's fresh & delicious, kind of citrus smelling. Like 'what have you got on your hair' kinda smell. So yes, I bought it. Of course I bought it.
Kerastase Ciment Thermique - Heat activated reconstructor milk. What the heck is up with the name? I never remember what this is called.
This is a leave in product and acts like a cross between a leave in conditioner and smoothing serum. According to my stylist Claire I wouldn't need to flat iron my hair after using this. When I used this at home I wasn't so sure I'd get the same results as she did in the salon, but I did! This gave me that bouncy hair commercial kind of hair and I was thrilled with how it turned out. My hair looks healthy and almost as good as when I get a professional blow out.
The important thing to note is that you do need some sort of heat to activate this product. This isn't for those who just wash their hair and let it air dry. This doesn't weigh my hair down or give me that greasy, gluey feeling the next day. My hair just felt soft and like I had no product in it at all.
I love this more than the Oleo serum and if I had to choose one, this would be it hands down. It costs about $40. But that said, this is quite a large tube and I only use about a quarter size amount in my hair so it will last me awhile. For once I have no buyers regret with a high end product, no twinge in my stomach, nothing. This is TOTALLY worth the money.
One strange note about this product....
There are many languages on the back explaining how to use the product..ok fine. But why is the ingredient list in Chinese? Japanese? when it's made in Spain. I don't get it.
Either way, this may be my favourite product of the year so far. Of the year! I give it a huge thumbs up and if you are looking to treat yourself, or add a product to your birthday/Christmas wish list..this would be the one.
Can you tell I love it? And now I'm off, hoping someone will ask me a question with my back turned so I'll have to swing my bouncy hair around to answer.
