KÉRASTASE RÉSISTANCE THÉRAPISTE

I have naturally wild, unruly, frizzy and dry hair and after all the hair-dyeing and blow drying that I subject it to…it is a hot mess. It is such a battle for me to try and find something to tame my hair and when I do, I wear it wild and proud because the frizz calms down and then I can get away with my untamed waves. My hair was always one of the things I hated about my appearance most, but it is finally growing on me …quite literally. I suppose all these big hair trends made me feel more comfortable and my friends are always telling me that people pay to have hair like mine so I have begun to realise that I am lucky. I think we need to do that more…to learn to love our imperfections and realise they are what make us unique.

So on the subject of nurturing my hair I decided to invest in the KÉRASTASE RÉSISTANCE THÉRAPISTE range. It is quite expensive but I have to say well worth it, if your hair sounds like mine then you should give it a shot. I  asked for samples first at my salon and the results were undeniable so I went back and bought it. This range is for very damaged, over-processed hair and the science within the formula literally restores your hair. It contains FIBRA KAP which is a powerful complex that compensates for missing KAPs (Keratin Associated Proteins) and it has a plant extract which revives hair after 10 years of near death. It is literally hair SOS and I swear my hair feels like it has been resuscitated. I can feel it getting shinier and healthier after every shampoo. I previously used Kerastase for years but my hair eventually became immune to it so I switched and this new formula is literally amazing. I will probably change after these bottle finish because I really believe that your hair gets used to a product and becomes resistant but I will 100% go back to it after mixing it up a little.

The products are available to purchase at professional hair salons.

If you have any of the following symtoms your hair is SCREAMING for Kerastase Resistance Therapie

Symptom #1: When you’re shampooing, the hair feels shabby and lifeless, almost like it’s disintegrating between the fingers.

Symptom #2: Visually, the ends look “burnt.” There are split ends everywhere.

Symptom #3: The lengths are tangled and brittle when you run a comb through your hair. The hair looks and feels inert.

Symptom #4: The colour is less vibrant and appears muddy, washed out and lifeless

Resistance Therapiste is designed for very damaged to over-processed hair. It is for hair at the erosion level 3-4 – An overall impression of dryness. Not as soft as it once was, the color is less vibrant. The ends are damaged. The sensation has gone from “rough” to “hard.” Damaged, broken and brittle, the hair feels as if it is disintegrating and the ends appear burnt. It becomes washed out, faded, lifeless. The hair looks and feels inanimate. For the first time, L’Oreal Advanced Research has succeeded in very closely targeting damaged, over-processed hair to give it new life. A range rich with four new product references benefitting from upgraded effectiveness.

Sunsilk Damage Hair Reconstruction Shampoo – AED16
Sunsilk Damage Hair Reconstruction Conditioner – AED19

A few weeks ago I was doing make up for the models at a Sunsilk sponsored Fashion show at the Mall Of The Emirates, to be honest the brand had never been on my radar before then. It was a pretty hectic day so I didn’t really get the chance to learn about the products but when I was leaving I was given some of their shampoos. I just tried one and t really is amazing! Since I went Ombre the ends of my hair are super dry, my hairs actually completely stripped and it was literally breaking off at the ends where its just been completely bleached out so I was in desperate need of a rescue remedy. I have been using argan oil and leave in conditioners which I do regularly because my hair is pretty dry even in its normal state but this shampoo has literally transformed it! Its co-created byThomas Taw of London, founder of Bobsoho Salon, famous for resuscitating damaged hair. I used their most advanced Damaged Hair Reconstruction formulation to give back extreme smoothness and health to your damaged hair and my hair feels like its been restored, its actually silkier then before the bleach!

Tom shared a tip, “check if you have any damage by pulling out a single strand of hair and submerging it into a glass of water. If it floats, your hair is healthy; if it sinks, you are in need of some repair.” If it sinks ladies, you know what you need!

I find the most effective test is to hold your hair between your thumb and index finger at the roots, then slide your fingers downwards.

If the hair is healthy, when you repeat this, but moving your finger in the opposite direction, the feeling will be the same. If the hair is damaged, however, you will feel roughness or even hear a squeak, because the cuticles of the outer layer of the hair are broken, open, and raised.

The main thing to know is that an open and rough cuticle allows factors that threaten the health of the hair to easily pass through to the inner part of the hair fibres. The structure of healthy hair is characterized by an intact cuticle that tightly surrounds the cortex; when these are closer together, the hair is better protected from external damage.

They have a whole new range of 8 shampoos so find the one most suitable for you, these can be found at most supermarkets and are a fraction of the price of premium shampoos like L’oreal’s Kerastase, Goldwell and TIGI!
