I always try to avoid using product in my hair (other than shampoo and conditioner), but because I am letting my hair grow out more I have to start using a heat protectant whenever I plan on blow drying it. I was always a fan of the quick spray heat protectants, specifically the Tresemme, but after doing a little more research I decided to branch out and give the Kerastase Nectar Thermique a try.
The Kerastase Nectar Thermique has received so many great reviews online that it was definitely a stand out product to try. Kerastase Nectar Thermique is a leave in nourishing heat protectant that works to protect hair from heat styling tools. It is formulated with Royal Jelly Extract which provides the carbohydrates, lipids, and protein that hair needs to stay healthy. It also contains a lot of heat protecting factors, such as xylose and UV Filters. Even if you don't have dry ends, continued use of heat tools such as dryers and irons really stresses our your ends. So the Kerastase Nectar Thermique brings back life and softness to your ends without weighing your hair down.
After showering I would towel dry my hair really well, and apply a pea sized amount of the Kerastase Nectar Thermique from my ear down to my ends and really massage it into the hair (avoiding the scalp area). After a quick blow dry I get a great, soft, and healthy look.
I can definitely see a difference after using the Kerastase Nectar Thermique as a leave in conditioner for my ends and heat protectant. My ends stay healthier and the texture and finish is definitely salon style. I believe it it more beneficial to use a leave in heat protectant like the Kerastase Nectar Thermique, compared to other heat protectant sprays, because it really absorbs into the hair and nourishes the strands other than providing just a top layer of protection.
Although the product is a bit pricier than the average drugstore heat protectant, a pea sized amount is all you need for great results. So with daily use, this bottle can last 6-8 months. The Kerastase Nectar Thermique has definitely found a permanent place into my hair care routine.
