Winter is never my favorite. I actually hate winters! Since a kid I was actually overweight and wearing lots of clothes made me look fatter. Well, people used to call me cute but I know the actual word was fat.
And later I realized that me being a dry skinned girl, winters are like my enemy. I am always in need of heavy moisturizers and body lotions. But the concern is not only for my body but my hair too. My hair tends to be very dry and rough. Thus, I need something very moistursing. And as per this notion I started using hair masks. I have used a number of hair masks all year roundm (not only in winters!)
Since some time Kerastase products have been doing rounds. And I have heard quite rave reviews about this hair mask specifically. I have heard a number of beauty bloggers swearing on this product. So, I also decided to pamper my tresses with this hair mask. Here is my review on the Kerastase Elixir K Ultime Masque for all you hair mask lovers!
My Views :
This mask from the house Kerastase is small but cute in size. It is light brown in colour and the detailed description is mentioned in the mask itself. The mask has a cap at the top which needs to be twisted to open the product. Inside the cap there is a heavenly smell and a liquid which is pearl yellow in colour. To me the mask seems like an exotic product from Kerala waters.
The texture and the consistency of this mask is creamy. It is actually very creamy. You need to dilute it with water to make it runny. Once when it is left on hair for some time the hair literally smells heavenly. When rinsed with water after some time, my hair feels smooth and soft. The roughness of dry hair and hair ends become a thing for the past. This soft and newly revived hair stays for at least 2 days.
Direction to Use : Take a bit of hair mask in your palms. Dilute it water to get the runny consistency. Now, spread the mask over your hair mostly to your hair lengths and hair ends. Now, keep the mask for some time at least for 5-7 minutes. Rinse away with water. This is when you use the mask as a conditioner. But also try to use it as a masque. Apply the masque covering both your hair ends and scalp. Now, let it sit for 35-40 minutes and then wash it away. This is the best treatment for dry hair!
Price : Rs.1350 for 75 ml.
Rating : 5/5
Overall, I really like this hair mask. It does not weigh my hair down but it still makes it look really healthy and nourished. You need only a little amount per usage. So, a single tub of this hair mask will last you long enough. I guess with my medium length hair it will easily last me six months or so.
