As you might have guessed, I’m a more than a little obsessed with getting my hair into the best condition it can possibly be. So I was really happy when the lovely people behind KeraStraight asked me to try out the treatment.
KeraStraight offers two different in-salon mask treatments that are combined with a blow-dry to give you the smoothest, sleekest hair you’ve experienced, competely frizz-free but without the flat, poker-straight look that other treatments often leave you with.
I tried out the Moisture Mask, an intense yet lightweight treatment that acts literally just like a hydrating, nourishing face mask would for your skin. The shine it leaves it has to be seen to be believed, and the hair feels heavenly.
Ingredients include Palmeira Rucuma, a Brazilian fibre palm that acts like a humectant, Moringa Oleifera Leaf which contains over 92 nutrients and half as many antioxidants and Carob Bean Extract, another great humectant.
As a salon treatment, your hair is washed using the correct cleanser, and the mask is applied to the hair, from root to tip. It is then dried into the hair with the addition of a little heat from a hair dryer, then all but rinsed out, after which it is blow-dried into which ever style you like – curly, wavy, volumised, straight, it’s your call.
The effects are immediate (and obvious) but they last for upto 30 days.
You could also opt to buy a tub of the Moisture Mask (£25) to continue the treatment at home, in-between salon treatments. Use it weekly, applying to wet hair and leaving it in for upto 20 minutes. Intensify the effect by using heat on it (a quick blast with a hairdryer should do it), before rinsing it out, or alternatively sit in a lovely warm bath and let the steam do its work. Either way, you’ll have beautiful, shiny, shimmering hair that does what you want it to when you blow dry it.
Well-behaved hair? – now there’s a novelty! Could this little beauty in a blue tub bring an end to my SOS Hair in Distress series? Let’s wait and see….
