Kérastase Chroma Thermique: OMG
I haven't blogged about my hair or hair products in an age, just because it's so damn complicated. I have seriously thick, long hair that is quite dry and overprocessed. I go through serums and oils like nobody's business, and have been fighting a lifelong battle with frizz! Because of all this, what suits me may not suit you, which had held me back from writing too much about my hair thus far. However, when I find something this good, I obviously have to share it with you all!
Kérastase Chroma Thermique is a pretty hard-working product that comes encased in the most gorgeous hot pink packaging. I picked mine up for €27 at a local hairdressers (Hession in Clontarf), which may seem steep, but I think that it's well worth it on a cost-per-wear basis. It's a leave-in conditioner that softens and strengthens your hair, as well as acting as a heat protectant.
I use two walnut-sized dollops of this on my hair when it's damp, and the difference is visible as soon as I get to work with the blowdryer. Frizz is minimised, and my hair dries a lot smoother and softer in less time. The best thing about this stuff is that apparently, it stays in your hair for up to about four washes. Now, I wouldn't go that far, especially as I always shampoo twice. However, I do notice that my hair remains soft and manageable after it has been washed again, so I just tend to use it one every two to three washes. This is fantastic for both my hair and my pocket as I'm avoiding product build-up, while also getting the best possible mileage out of the bottle.
So, although this stuff may seem expensive, it lasts for ages and is one of the best hair products I have ever used. My locks have been through the ringer recently with a botched dye job, and this stuff really helped to salvage and strengthen them. I can't recommend Chroma Thermique enough.
