Through one of the sample clubs I belong to, I received a Kerastase sample of Nutritive Nectar Thermique. If you’re unfamiliar with Kerastase they are a L’Oreal owned brand sold exclusively at high-end salons and salon supply stores. Their products are amazing… really amazing. They treat the hair in such a way that it’s almost similar to a skincare regimen. They cleanse (shampoo), Treat (Condition) and Prime (Oils and Leave In Conditioning agents).
I would love to sit here and say I use ONLY Kerastase but with prices like $39 for 250 ML, well I don’t. But I do enjoy getting samples of Kerastase anything, particularly the styling creams and leave in elixir’s. I used the Nutritive Nectar Thermique to blow my hair out this week in place of my normal routine… I’m impressed.
First – to straighten my hair, it is a process. I have to section my hair out into small sections. Then I have to blow each section straight. That takes about 45 minutes. Then, I have re-section out my blown out hair and run the flat iron through each section. That takes another 25 minutes. It is exhausting. Really tiring. And abusive. Terribly drying.
Nutritive Nectar Thermique is a cream that is supposed to moisturizer your hair as well as protect it from heat styling and shorten the time it takes to dry your hair. It 100% kept my hair more moist than my normal product does. Without a doubt however it didn’t really improve drying time. I really don’t think any product will help do that.
There is a noticeable scent but it’s clean smelling and pleasing and not at all irritating and it goes away quickly after drying your hair. The sample I received will last me through another blow dry but you can purchase one for yourself at the Kerastse website. 150 ML will cost $42 and 50 ML costs $18.
Honestly, this is luxury item and if funds were indisposable, I would be buying nothing but Kerastase. But my feeling is that I can get quality products from Brands like Organix for much less. What do you think? Will you be buying Kerastase?
