Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense Review

Sunday Pamper!

Kerastase is a worldwide known hair product owned by L'oreal that has a vast amount of ranges depending on your concern. I had used it many years ago and loved it but then switched it up as hair can get "used to" what you put on it. Since I'm attempting to grow out my hair, I've come back to it to assure my locks grow healthy. 

Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense comes in two formulations: one for thin hair, and one for thick hair. I happened to choose the one for thick hair just because it sounded richer - who knows. 

If you're interested in it, keep on reading!

Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense is an intense conditioning treatment for dry or damaged hair.  With 200ml of product, this is a good buy, considering a little goes a long way. 

But what are the goodies? It contains glucose, wheat protein and lipids, which nourish, protect and soften the hair cuticle. 

As you can see in the picture above, it is a white cream and it feels very thick and rich. It's heavily fragranced. I was trying to think of the scent... the closest thing I came up with was "floral". I personally like it though. Those who don't get along with strong scents probably won't like this though.

Once you put it on your hair, you can immediately feel it smooth out as the comb glides through effortlessly. 

I like to leave it on for an hour, then rise it out with cool water. The results? Untangled, glossy, smooth, good-hair-day-hair. 

I decided to end the post with my own personal tips on how to make the best of your hair masks - that is, not just slathering it on your hair for a few minutes, but really letting the product penetrate:

  1. Shampoo once or twice, depending on how dirty your hair is, and don't apply conditioner.
  2. Jump out of the shower, wrap yourself in a towel and detangle your hair using a wide-tooth comb.
  3. Squeeze out the excess water with your hands or a towel, if you prefer, but don't "rub".
  4. Distribute the mask evenly, little by little. Clipping your hair in sections works best. As you do this, massage the product thoroughly, concentrating on the most damaged or dry areas.
  5. Leave it on for an hour or longer.
  6. Rinse out with cool water - this will close the cuticles and prevent frizz.
  7. Gently remove excess water and comb your hair, again, using a wide-tooth comb.
  8. Don't apply any styling products and let air dry to see the mask's maximum benefit.
Hope this helps! Have a lovely day! x
