I am a big fan of Kerastase hair products which I first discovered as my hairdresser used them. It is a premium brand that is very expensive but you do get what you pay for and I guarantee you will notice a difference.
I find that after a while my hair gets used to the products I used so I stopped using Kerastase and have been trying less expensive brands.
Having been away for a few weeks recently my hair had suffered despite using protein spray and various sun protection products and hair masks. It looked and felt like straw so emergency measures were called for and Kerastase came to the rescue.
The Reflection Range
This is a range of products that is aimed at colour treated hair one of many ranges that Kerastase do.
Kerastase Reflection Chroma Riche Fluide comes in a pink bottle with a pump action. (The Dooyoo picture is the mask in this range). It is a serum that you apply after washing your hair.
There are instructions on the back of the bottle in very small writing, that I could not read read. So I rather overdid it on my first application and after washing my hair and towel drying I aimed the bottle at my hair and sprayed about 4 or 5 times. Only to discover this isn't a spray and I should have dispensed about 1 or 2 pumps of the serum into my hand and worked this through my hair.
However given the state of my hair this is exactly what it needed and overdoing the application meant my straw like hair felt like silk, was really easy to style and there wasn't a stray flyaway or element of frizz, plus it actually looked shiny. A minor miracle as it was very dry and sun bleached.
I have continued using this and only use 1 pump as I now have much shorter hair and I felt that 2 pumps was overloading it. As my hair is short I rub the product which is a clear serum between my hands and then carefully work it through my hair before blow drying. Be careful when you do this as I was a bit slapdash and just slapped it on one day and must have applied it in one place only and I had to wash and start again as it was product overload.
I love that you can apply and not have to rinse out, so I can cut corners when I am in a rush and this acts as a conditioner . My hair looks and feels fantastic , really shiny , soft and smooth and what I usually do is just add a drop to my palms and rub them together and then smooth this over my hair when it is dry , which makes it even shinier.
This product claims to help prevent colour fade which is a bonus as I have my hair coloured at a salon and it isn't cheap to maintain. It contains a UV filter and vitamin E for sun protection.
I have found that my colour lasts a lot longer if I use products aimed at coloured hair and it is a couple of weeks since I had my colour and it still looks the same as it did when I left the salon . ( I am using the shampoo and conditioner in the same range)
It also smooths the hair shaft so makes my hair easy to style and I find my hair retains that just washed and styled look for a couple of days.
My hair is dry and fine and colour treated and it works like a treat and does exactly what it claims.
This gets consistently good reviews and was voted a InStyle best beauty in 2010 and I can fully understand why.
It is expensive and full price will cost you around £19 for 125ml . I bought mine with 40% off plus I had a discount voucher if I spent over a certain amount so I stocked up on various Keratstase products. I only wish I had bought 2. I think this will last me 3 to 4 months so for the price I paid and the results it delivers I think even at full price this is a must have product.
I bought from Looks Fantastic online , but shop around as there may be other deals.
I would recommend this wholeheartedly as it really performed a minor miracle on my very damaged hair when I applied twice as much as I should have.
Having rehydrated my hair I use it to add moisture shine and protect my colour from fading and am now sporting super shiny silky hair.
