I live in a tropical island, the Mecca of humidity. I put just a tiny bit (dime size) on my chin length hair. I let it air dry and then I flat iron it. The hair looks AMAZING. Shiny/glossy, it's super soft, bouncy. It takes your regular ironing and takes it to the next level. It's pricey, but if it works, then I will scarify. Besides, I use so little of it that it will last.
Question though, is it true that you only put this on once every 5 washes?
I almost put this up for swap after 2 uses. Then I came back & read reviews. Wow!! I love it !!! I used walnut size for my long hair- while my hair was in towel 5 minutes. What a difference:). Thank you Reneerene for hints!!!! Will definitely buy again!!!!!
I have fine relaxed AA 4a, 4b hair that tends toward the dry side.
I'd been using this for weeks on my hair before a roller set and then going to sit under a hooded dryer. No noticeable difference.
Washed my hair with Keracare Hydrating Detangling, conditioned with Kerastase Masquintense and then put this stuff in my hair as a leave in.
I proceeded to blow dry with with my Elchim 2001 (which is amazingly powerful and makes a huge difference where frizz free hair is concerned). Hair was definitely sleeker than I can normally get it by myself.
But heres where the real MAGIC happened when I turned my FHI to 370 degrees and flat ironed 2 inch section!!!
Hair instantly got sleek with and high shine to it.
Unfortunately this seemed to be gone the next day thanks to the Miami humidity. Will experiment with this again. Beats the hell out of Revlon heatglide.
It's the texture of a watery lotion, kinda like a milky cream. It protects when you heat style and smells subtley fresh. Very citrusy, nutty.
Very light. Does not weigh hair down at all.
Highly recommend.....Now if only I could make the effects last.
Update- All I need to do is follow up with a serum and I've achieved the shiniest silkiest quality of hair.....I never knew it could be like this. If I were on a crashing plane Id 1. Curse my mother for mever giving me swim lessons. 2. Grab a life jacket and 3. Grab ciment thermique.
I'LL NEVER BE WITHOUT IT AGAIN.
Great on my afro hair! My hair looks healthier and is more resiliant since using it. I Mix it with the oleo relax serum to avoid my hair from looking dull. Wouldn't dare use my hair straightners without it!
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! Este es uno de los mejores productos que he probado para el cabello en mi vida!! Mi pelo esta super mega maltratado por los highlights, alisados, tintes, de todo!! La mayoria del tiempo estaba frizz. Cuando me pase blower con esto, el pelo me quedo suuuuuuuuuuuper suave, casi ninguna horquetilla en el cabello, y lo mejor de todo, noté que no se me partia el pelo como antes. La verdad que es un poco caro el producto, pero creeme vale la pena invertir el dinero, porque obtienes la calidad de producto por la que pagastes. Realmente auqnue me quiebe jajajaja seguiré comprando este producto .
HG! This is AMAZING stuff! I can't style my hair without, which is now getting pretty expensive, but it is completely worth it! Love, love, love it!
This is totally worth the money!! It is by far the best heat protectant I have ever used. My colored, somewhat damaged hair is just smooth, silky and gorgeous when I use this, I never want to be without it.
Another bonus: I ordered this from kerastase.com and got free shipping, free samples, and it all came packaged in a beautiful box! I felt like it was Christmas all over again ;-)
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE! This grapefruit scented milk/light cream is amazing. I hate grapefruit but the smell is not too offensive. Now to the really important stuff -- the results. In the application directions it says to apply a walnut size, but I have short hair right now so I use about a pea size amount. I apply it to the ends and mid lengths of my hair and massage it in a little.
I blow dry my hair, or sometimes let it air dry and use a straightening iron. My hair is really soft, frizz free, bouncy and shiny...and I love knowing that it's protected against the heat. According to the information inside the box, it lasts for up to 5 shampoos, so you don't actually need to apply it every day when you heat-style. You can have it in your hair from 2 days ago and "apparently" the heat reactivates it and continues to protect your hair against damage. Who knows if this is true or not, but it seems to work for me!
This stuff blows other pre-blow dry treatments out of the water. Yes, it has silicones. NO, it does not build up on me, even though I am using sulfate free shampoos. Not greasy like a serum, it is a cream. I apply before blowouts and the results are amazing. No frizz and just sleek shiny hair. I used to use Kiehl's heat protective silk straightening cream, but it is nothing compared to this.
This is the best product for my hair. This is a heat protector that actually allows you to use flat irons, but you can use it without any heat just to get that silky feeling. My hair was very very soft after using this and my hair is never usually soft. I can run my hands through it without getting tangled. The smell is divine probarbly the best smelling product ever, very citrusy like lime and lemon. I wish the smell lasts longer though. And you only need a tiny amount. Overall a fantastic product and highly recommended.
