My hair was recently in dire need of rescuing, I had been very neglectful and it had lost its vitality, so i decided to take the plunge and make some crucial investments.
Kérastase is a luxury haircare brand which can only be purchased either online or in select salons and is part of the professional products division of the L’Oréal Group. It also happens to be my all time hero brand, which i go to when I’m in need of a total hair overhaul. Kérastase produce a variety of product ranges, one of my favourites being the Nutritive collection which is designed to give nourishment for dry or sensitised hair.
‘Nutritive: Our first Gluco-Active enriched haircare programme to boost conditioning nourishment to tip. Hair feels replenished with softness and left light and supple with an incredible shine.’
I had also heard great things about the Resistance collection, which I personally had never tried. This range is designed for weak, fine or aged hair and is said to fortify damage.
‘A complete collection to strengthen weak hair from within. Fortified hair regains vitality, body and strength.’
Upon entering my local salon I received such good assistance in which I was told that although Kérastase provide collections of products suited to variable hair types, there are usually diverse components that the hair needs so it’s generally a good idea to switch and alternate between ranges. I was advised to use both the Nutritive and Resistance products together to aid both aspects, and thats exactly what I did. I chose the Bain De Force (Shampoo) from the Resistance collection and Lait Vital (Conditioner) from the Nutritive collection.
Bain De Force is for chemically or naturally weak hair; suitable for me as I have highlight’s, this product reinforces my hair and repairs any damage. Lait Vital is for normal to slightly dry, sensitised hair and with having blonde hair it is much more difficult to retain shine, yet this leaves my hair looking like silk. These products together just work for me, I noticed a difference even after one use.

I had been longing after the ghd AIR Hair Dryer for quite some time yet with it’s hefty price tag of £99 I always opted against it. I would tell myself a hair dryer couldn’t make that much of a difference, at least not to the extent of which net-a-porter quote.
‘Want a faster blow dry without losing that salon-worthy shine and bounce? ghd’s air hair dryer is the answer. A mega-watt motor makes it more powerful than your average dryer, and it’s shaped for added speed, too. Ionic technology locks in moisture, making this tool a savior for even the frizziest of tresses.’
When there was £20 off for a limited time I simply buckled. To me that was too good an offer to refuse. My order arrived along with a free diffuser worth £15. It was love at first use. Life changing. I can’t explain the importance of owning a good hair dryer now that I have experienced it myself. It no longer takes a decade to dry my hair with the result bearing an uncanny resemblance to that of Monica in that episode of Friends (The One in Barbados). Instead I now have the perfect component to give me that Kate Middleton-esque blow dry.
