As someone who prides herself on nurturing her hair back to health after frying and later chopping it all off, I’ve been suffering lately as the mercury continues to drop! My sweaters and collection of hats have not been kind and leaves my ‘do flat and lifeless. Winter seems to suck the moisture out of my strands, so they’re parched and begging for moisture.
Kérastase understands this (and the effects of oxidation) and has revamped their world-renowned Nutritive collection using a very special ingredient known to fight oxidation: the iris flower. The ingredients found in the formula, in addition to the iris, targets dehydrated hair and infuses it with moisture. The brand also introduced two new products that I’ve been testing and fell head over heels for.
First, a pre-shampoo treatment (Immersion Nutritive, $42) that’s pretty lightweight and felt more like a leave-in conditioner than a treatment. This preps hair so that it can absorb more of the good stuff found in your shampoo. After washing and drying your hair, there’s Touche Perfection ($35)- a balm that you can carry around to add a bit more moisture to strands. I’ve been applying this when I reach the office and take off my hat. Instead of having hair that sticks up due to static, it’s soft and leaves a beautiful scent. Again what I love is how lightweight it is so my hair isn’t weighed down or stuck to my head.
The Nutritive collection is available available now at salons and Kerastase.com.
