It's worth the price, and then some. Why would I waste my hard-earned money on Kerastase when I can buy products that work just as well, if not better, for a fraction of the price?
As a previous reviewer pointed out, this does contain isopropyl alcohol, which surpirsed and confused me (I didn't notice its inclusion on the ingredient list until I got home); however, I've not experienced any dryness or other issues you might expect (buring eyes, tingling skin, those kinds of things), so it's probably balanced out by the moisturizing components.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, way to go, L'oreal. Another stellar offering - keep up the great work.
Would I buy it again? YES!!! Man, I am afraid of sounding like a L'Oreal fanatic here with all my crazed reviews for the Oleo line. This stuff is amazing! It's a glorious, (upside down?) world where their cheaper line performs the way you'd expect Kerastase to. I've used all the Oleo-Relax, Masquintense...etc etc. None of them blew me away like the Oleo line has. Now, being totally fair... I also knew I'd paid 50+ clams for those, so, I bet any effects were mitigated thusly. However, money aside, I swear the L'Oreal products work even better. J'Adore, L'Oreal!!!
I love this mask! I was completely blown away how well it hydrated and softened my hair. There are no cones that I can see and it is glycerin based. It does have a balm like cosistency and surprisingly there is isopropyl alcohol towards the middle, but it hasn't caused any problems for me. My guess is that it is in there to balance out the oils( there are six) in this and to keep it from being too heavy. It has a nice light scent that doesn't linger. My curls were left looking very shiny with no frizz and it air-dried that way. I didn't lose as much definition as I do with other oil based products. This has a decent amount of slip in the shower, but my hair was able to be detangled easily after I got out the shower. It was about eight dollars at Target. I would recommend it for dry, thick, or coarse hair . I can't wait to try the self-heating oil treatment next.
