Freshly emerged from the shower, having winkled out the remnants of my current hair treatment, I thought it was high time I updated you all on the third and final product I have been trialling in my 'treating your tresses' series. I have previously reviewed the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Extreme and a Shu Uemura Art of Hair Smoothing Treatment Mask. The first being quite a disappointment, the latter bringing me and my hair much joy and delight! The final product to meet my tresses test was Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax smoothing masque.
Kerastase have an applaudable army of products specifically targeted to treat all hair types and needs. This treatment comes from their Nutritive range. I personally love the garish tangerine packaging, and the colour co-ordinated treatment to boot. Your senses tell you that this product should smell sweetly of oranges and such, but it doesn't! It is pretty much fragrance-free.
This smoothing masque sets out to discipline dry, frizzy, unmanageable hair (aka my barnet) and it boasts anti-frizz properties to protect your hair from humidity-induced frizz and unmanageability. This treatment contains glucose, lipids and proteins for dry, sensitised hair, and promises to replenish hair with softness and suppleness for incredible shine.
The treatment has a lovely rich consistency and a real luxurious feel to it. I have been using it once or twice every week and have definitely felt a difference. I feel it has worked wonders on my mane, caressing my hair and leaving it silky soft. In particular, I have noticed an improvement in the condition of the ends of my hair and with this treatment, and the Shu Uemura, I have found the mission of blow-drying my barnet has been severely alleviated. My hair seems less frizzy and is left feeling smoother after styling.
So here is the final ranking.
3rd place - Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Extreme
2nd place - Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax Smoothing Masque
and the winner is, without a shadow of doubt, Shu Uemura Art of Hair Shusu Sleek Treatment Mask
So there we go!
I hope these reviews have helped you if you were contemplating any of these products.
