If you’re on the quest for strong, healthy hair, then there are a number of steps you can take to reduce damage and increase strength. There are a number of factors which can contribute to hair damage and many of them, such as environmental aggressors, are almost impossible to avoid. From improving your diet to getting your hands on the cult-favourite Kérastase shampoo – there are a number of steps you can take to improve the quality of your hair.

Hair masques are an incredibly important part of your hair care regime, however, they’re often overlooked.  A hair masque works to deeply restore the hair, helping to keep it looking healthy, shiny and full of life. The Kérastase Resistance Therapiste Masque has been formulated for damaged, over-processed hair when used alongside the Resistance Shampoo and Conditioner, it can restore and repair the hair.

Kérastase Resistance Therapiste Masque

The Kérastase Resistance Therapiste Masque has been specifically formulated for dry, damaged and over-processed hair. The lightweight mask boasts an expert formula which works to revitalise each and every hair strand, lock in moisture and promote strong, healthy hair.

The butter-textured hair mask is enriched with Kérastase’s breakthrough FIBRA-KAP™ and Séve De Résurrection technology to expertly revive the hair.

The  FIBRA-KAP™ technology boasts a blend of 6 amino acids which work to restore the integrity of the hair strand.

Additionally, the Séve De Résurrection or ‘resurrection sap’ works to bring dull, lackluster hair back to life. This innovative plant extract infuses the hair with moisture while improving the hair’s vitality.

These two breakthrough technologies work together to restore protein to each individual hair fibre while infusing it with moisture for truly strong and healthy hair.

How Often Should I Use A Hair Masque?

You might think that restoring your damaged hair might mean that you have to add hours to your hair care routine, however, this simply isn’t the case. Simply apply the hair masque to the lengths and ends of washed, towel-dried hair and leave it to work its magic for 5-10 minutes.

When added to your hair care regime just once per week, you’ll notice your hair is feeling beautifully soft, nourished and full of life.

My favourite can’t live with product and one of our best sellers is Schwarzkopf’s BC’s SEALED ENDS!
This miracle cream is for anyone with damaged, dry or weak ends or for someone that is just trying to get a bit more length, this lightweight cream can be apply to wet or dry hair and wraps itself around the hair acting like a plaster, to prevent further damage and restores the protective outer layer. The powerful combination of keratin, lipid components, amino acids and panthenol gives strength, elasticity and vital moisture from the inside out, helping to prevent unnecessary split ends and leaving the hair looking healthy and shiny.

As I have fine coloured hair, it tends to get split very easily and when that happens it frays like a pair of jeans does meaning all though my hair seems to grow the same rate as normal it seems to take forever to get long, a very common complaint with all hair types. It’s fantastic for those fluffy, fuzzy annoying short bits that we fight with around the face. By adding what I call ‘invisible plaster’ protection they get more length and suppleness making them much more easier to deal with!

So use SEALED ENDS if you want

* 100% hair replenishment
* 100% resilience
* 95% less hair breakage

It’s a no brainer!!
