Dried out hair but can’t ditch the straightener? This is for you!

I’ve always been a little skeptical when trying out new haircare products, they always claim to work absolute miracles with your hair but the reality rarely lives up to the dream, if in fact ever!

I live with my GHD I straighten my hair once a day at least and I know it’s terrible for my hair but if I don’t I end up with hair reminiscent of Hermione Granger.

So when I was told to try the L’Oréal Professionnel Pro-Keratin Refill Masque and how good it was needless to say I was very doubtful, none the less I gave it a shot.

I washed my hair twice to begin with just to make sure that it was spotless.

Still feeling skeptical I screwed open the jar and looked in, nothing spectacular here just a normal looking hair mask, it smelled gorgeous though.

I applied it generously through my damp hair with my fingers and then combed it through.
It says to leave it in for 2-5 minutes, I left it for the full five thinking my hair with all of the torture I give it with straightening irons would definitely need it.

After the five minutes I washed it out and got out of the shower.
I let my hair dry naturally to try and see the full extent of what this product could do on it’s own and when it started to dry I was gobsmacked.

My hair, my DRY, BRITTLE hair that suffers at the hands of my GHD on the regular was SOFT and not only soft but SHINY to boot, my WAVES were WAVES rather than untamed frizz!
Even when I straightened it the softness and shine remained.

I was surprised but unconvinced, surely it must have just been a lucky good hair day!

So I tried it a second time…

But this time I put it up to the challenge of me blowdrying my hair, the results were admittedly not as good as when I let it dry naturally but they were still incredible. My hair was soft, frizz was visibly reduced and even after blowdrying and straightening my hair remained soft and shiny.

Conclusion:

This is an awesome product!

It’s a little on the pricier side at €20 for a 2ooml pot but you don’t need to use much of it so it lasts and above all else it really works!

Would I recommend this?

Absolutely and that goes double to those of you who use heat treatments on your hair!
Also it’s an absolute must have for anyone who’s hair dries out in the summer weather, this product will have your hair back gorgeous and shiny in no time!

Thanks for reading!
