Hair obsession

For the past few years my favorite accessory of all has been ... my hair. I love my long glossy locks and I can't wait to share the wisdom.

As a teenager I used to experiment a lot with my hair. I was constantly changing my color and my hair straightener never got a free day. On the first picture you can see the results of years of torture. My hair  was short and despite my best efforts, it wouldn't grow at all, it was dry and I had split ends. 
The bad tale finished when I discovered Kerastase and my hairs went on to live happily ever after. 

From the first few washes I could notice a significant difference. My hair became luminous and its ends - polished! It also started growing really quickly. I have been using Kerastase for a few years now, which allowed me to try out most of their products. I'll be a good girl and I'll share my preferred ones with you: 

The miracle product: Elixir Ultime. With its 4 precious oils, it could be applied before washing for instant nourishing or before styling for an incredibly supple silky hair.

The shampoo: Lately, the new Cristalliste is my favorite one. I believe that this is the way to go if you have long hair. It provides deep nourishment with a light weight finish. My hair has never been so luminous!

You could either go with a masque or with a conditioner. Personally, I always get the masque. I try to wash my hair up to 2-3 times a week maximum and I am confident that the masque provides deeper nourishment. This particular one also has an amazing scent, which is always a bonus. The conditioner is a lighter formula, it may work well for you if you wash for hair more often (perhaps in the summer?).

Last, but not least. Your hair needs protection from the heat. Personally, I never use my hair straightener anymore, however I've grown very fond of my blow dryer. So fond - we are inseparable. Therefore, I always take my Nectar Therminque with me. Of course, there are other lovely options, which you may prefer, based on your hair's texture and needs. The nectar Thermique in particular, improves hair straightening and drying performance, provides intense moisture and adds smoothness. 

As a reward for baring with me all the way here, I'll share a secret that my hairdresser told me: Once or twice a month you may wash your hair, then you can apply your masque, your oil and even your Nectar Thermique all together, put on a simple shower hat and stay for at least 1 hour. The results are gorgeous!
