I don’t like writing about expensive hair care. I really don’t. But sometimes, the expensive things really deliver and I feel I HAVE to tell you. Just in case you want to treat yo’ self.
Kerastase Discipline is a line created to control your hair. Control FRIZZ. Discipline it! So, it’s for anybody that suffers from frizzy hair-straight, wavy, or curly-it doesn’t care. Kerastase Discipline is a range of hair products that really works. And it kind of pains me to say that because this stuff AIN’T cheap. Sigh. I hate it when expensive things actually work. 😛
There’s some actual actual real science behind the Kerastase Discipline line. And as you know, I dig that. It’s all about positive and negative ions. CHEMISTRY DUDES. The products in Kerastase Discipline contain three amino acids that account for more than one third of those naturally occurring in the hair. They are positively charged, so they attach to the negatively charged areas of damaged hair. Every weak zone gets replenished. There’s one wheat protein that’s loaded with naturally occurring amino acids in our hair too. But it’s been modified, with a positive charge so that it too will bond with damaged areas of the hair. There’s surface-morphing polymers to smooth surface roughness. AND It took ten years of research for L’Oréal Laboratories to perfect a bio-mimetic ceramide virtually similar to the ceramides that naturally occur in the hair. This molecule has one mission: firmly attach itself between the layers of the hair scales and restore softness, evenness and strength to the fiber of hair. And YUP. I think it does!
Kerastase Discipline promises 72 hours of frizz protection. I don’t go that long without washing my hair because I exercise almost daily and I can’t stand not washing my hair. My scalp couldn’t take it. It needs to feel clean! But I can say that the products do seem to keep my wavy/curly hair frizz-free with just air-drying. The products are really meant to be used for those that blow-dry their hair though, as it’s also supposed to decrease the time it takes to dry hair, which I did try a few times. JUST FOR YOU HAHA. Blow drying hair REALLY makes hair frizzy, so I rarely do it. But boy, I had no problem getting may hair smoothed out after using Kerastase Discipline products! My hair was smooth, silky, and shiny! Oh, and they smell SO GOOD. They are heavily perfumed products so be aware of that! But I love the smell.
I do feel that these products coat the hair though, and that would be because of those surface-coating polymers they talk about. I’m not sure what they are? But I’m guessing some version of silicones, so if something like that bothers you, then Kerastase Discipline products might not be for you. But if humidity and frizz are an issue for you, they may well be your hair saviours. These products did last me about 3 months because as you can see-I took that picture when there was no snow! So maybe you’d just want to use them over the summer months, as they are pretty pricey. But in the end, I do think they work and they lasted me until today. BOOHOO.
*products sent by PR for review, thoughts are mine as always!
Pricey hair products kind of give me a pain in my heart! I don’t know why, but spending a lot of money on hair products bothers me for some reason! It’s a mental block! Like skincare USED to be for me. But now, I don’t mind paying a bit for skincare that delivers…so maybe I’ll feel the same way about hair products too some day??? If I were to REALLY choose which products in this line I like the best? The shampoo and the mask. Get those. Oh, and if you do blow dry-get the thermo-protection spray. That stuff is freakin’ amazing.
Do you spend money on your hair care products? Or are you a hard-core drugstore hair care girl like me? You can’t pry me away from my Aveeno hair care…I just love that stuff, but every so often I do get tempted by something! Like this! If only Marky’s tuition for second semester wasn’t due before December 12th HAHAHA….. *cries*
