You heard me right. I have wonky hair lately ever since I undergo L’Oreal Professionnel HAIRchalk. Don’t worry. HAIRchalk is fine. Just that the patches I have is larger thus the unusual dryness on the hair. Every night I applied generous amount of L’Oreal Professional Mythic Oil (Nourishing Oil) on damp hair and on the next morning but my hair is still dry. My hair just drinks up to Mythic Oil!
Then Kérastase Cristalliste came to the rescue. My hair loves it so much that I must tell you how amazeball these product is. No more wonky hair 😀
Kérastase Cristalliste Luminous Perfecting Masque (RM136 / 200ml)
Now, I know hair masque is not suppose to be used daily but my case is exceptional. The weird thing is I no longer suffer from sensitive and dry scalp as that has turned to a complete different scenario. I have dry hair that is totally unmanageable. My hair was so wonky that I have puffy hair style all the time, which is rare because my hair is usually silky straight. I was kinda happy as any hair style I had on stay put. But on the other hand I can’t even comb through my hair. It was that badly dry.
I’ve tried all hair masque at home but all fails. It’s really odd as those used to work on my normal hair. That was until I used this Kérastase Cristalliste Luminous Perfecting Masque.
First thing that I notice is the strawberry, shimmery pink cream. So lovely and girly. The smell is amazing. It smells like candy to me but not sweet. My nose also pick up some floral scent.
So what this hair masque do is to nourishes and protects the hair while making it more luminous and shiny. This is the first step in treating my dry hair and it gives back shine to my dull hair. Almost instantly I can run my fingers through my hair, which I haven’t been able to do so in days.
This hair masque is like a pearlescent cream. The cream is enriched with Dry Oil to intensely nourish the hair by forming a smooth layer of film over each strands of hair. The formula is also infused with Candelilla Cera, which is a wax-like texture to coat the hair fibre and Ceramide, to fill in damaged hair cuticles. Sound like the right ingredients for my hair 😀
Most people are afraid that hair masque will drag their hair length down but not this one. It also contain Polymer that adds body to the hair. To be frank I don’t see any oiliness or extra weight on the hair after using the hair masque. All I know is my hair loves this one and they “listen” to the products very well.
That’s the ground work. What I have next is the saviour to my dry hair.
Kérastase Cristalliste Dual Sculpting Serum (RM82 / 30ml)
I don’t know about you but this Kérastase Cristalliste Dual Sculpting Serum reminds me of double serum skin care. Packaging might be similar but in fact this is a double serum for the hair.
Of the duo, this Kérastase Cristalliste Dual Sculpting Serum is the first product I picked up and use immediately after shampooing my hair the same night I received it. Unlike hair masque, I do have a habit of using hair serum every night after shampoo without fail. My hair was damaged previously so I realised the importance of keeping the hair length as alive as the top root.
This product’s unique characteristic is its dual-action effectiveness. Although Kérastase Cristalliste Dual Sculpting Serum is a double serum, it only comes in a single pump with two dispense nozzle hole. I find the pump to be a bit hard to press down but I get used to it after a few times. The bottle is semi-milky color so I can still see the two different serum tube holder on the inside.
Kérastase Cristalliste Dual Sculpting Serum dispense out in two different serum with two different color. One serum is to repair the hair and another is a gloss to add shine to the hair.
I learnt that this serum contain AHA. This ingredient is often known and used more in skin care but also beneficial in strengthening the interior of the hair fibre. When both serum is mixed up, the “mirror-like” texture acts as a light reflector gloss by smoothing the hair fibre, while Ceramide fills in the gap on the hair surface
On the first usage, I used three full pumps of Kérastase Cristalliste Dual Sculpting Serum onto my damp hair. I waited for my hair to dry and I was amazed with how less puffy my hair is even on first use only. I can even comb my hair and run my fingers through when it’s dry. I realized how much I miss my smooth straight hair.
I’ve been using both product diligently every single day with generous amount to tame down all the frizzy and dry hair. Eventhough I see positive result even on first use, I was determined to revive my hair back to it’s normal state. After just less than a week, I’m happy with the state of my hair, although not fully smoothen out yet but I was so happy to be able to ditch that wonky hair especially the hair on the top of my head. They are no longer frizzy and unmanageable.
