Kerastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique - Protect

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $18 for 50 ml

THE SKINNY: Kerastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique - Protect leaves my fine hair silky soft. I assumed it was a conditioning masque, so I applied in the shower after shampooing, left it in for a few minutes and then rinsed it out. My hair was bouncy and soft afterward.

It wasn't until I sat down to write this review that I realized this is a leave-in conditioner meant to repair damage from chemical processing and protect hair from heat styling.

I giggled and tried again. Oops.

My verdict for my fine hair is that it works best as a wash-out mask. A tiny dollop does OK as a leave-in cream, but I get better volume when I wash it out.

Regardless, I love that this product includes heat protection, which means one less product applied to my hair.

Use it however you see fit for your hair type.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. Like Kerastase Age Premium shampoo and conditioner, this product makes my hair feel amazing.

CHECK IT OUT: Kerastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique does come in a conditioning masque, as well as a shampoo, conditioner and the leave-in treatment.
