Repair damaged hair with KeraStraight Protein Mask

Something I have been using since the past month or so. It went quite unnoticed since I received it in my goody bag after my visit at the Lisa Shepherd Salon.

But after I got my hair dip dyed and reversed it back to my usual colour in a span of two days, it caused a lot of damage, which is usually irreparable and can only be cured by a good hair cut/trim which I didn't quite want... I like to keep the length of my hair as it usually takes ages to grow and this is quite a good middle option if you are suffering from the same dilemma.

Now Kerastraight being primarily a Salon brand has quite fancy instructions of keeping it on towel dried hair, placing it under a hair dryer like that for 20 minutes before rinsing. I am yet to try this way of using it but as of yet I have very 'technically' used it as a conditioner for 10 minutes, just on the lower part of the hair, starting after the jawbone.

It has tremendously 'mended' my hair in the past few weeks from dry and straw like to chemical-damage- never-really-happened-here. It might sound like a bit of exaggeration and although some split ends are obviously still there but only those at the very end which can easily do with an inch worth of trim.

The pot itself is quite little, like that of a face moisturiser and has a runny, creamy white liquid inside which can literally be poured onto the hair due to its light consistency. This is a good thing as it gets absorbed into the hair strands well but on the other hand, its difficult to gauge how much of it will be used up in a short amount of time, not providing value for money.

The product is known for its nano technology, by that I mean the formula has minuscule particles that form a net around damaged hair and repair the structure by improving elasticity and hydration, consequently imparting shine and giving an illusion of 'healthy' hair all over again.

Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein and Moringa Olifiera Leaf Extract work for 48 hours after using the product and continue rebuilding hair.

An effective product that substantially improves the condition of chemically damaged/treated, relaxed or straightened hair, not only superficially but also makes it feel healthy and bouncy due to its light weight formula.

It's available for around £20 at various salon outlets and websites I believe for a 100ml pot. This along with Gielly Green's Repair Mask has worked wonders in bringing my hair back to normal.
