AMW Reviews: Kerastase Reflection Chroma Reflect Masque

Finally!!!  Lemmings after lemmings, stopover from one salon to the other.  I finally purchase another Kerastase hair treatment!  There are so many ranges of Kerastase products targeted for different hair needs.  I have tried Kerastase Oleo Relax way back and instead of repurchasing the same product, I've decided to give the Reflection range a try since for the past years, I've colored my hair multiple times and my hair obviously lacks the luster and shine it was born with! The Kerastase Reflection Chroma Reflect is set to be for "sensitised hair", in simpler language, for hair that has been chemically damaged. <-- points to my own hair!

 

Kerastase Chroma Reflect says ---
A rich and luxurious conditioning treatment for thick and very sensitised colored hair.  This beautiful hair mask conditioner aims to restore the hair fiber and give the hair a masque aims to leavve the hair supple and soft with a beautiful luster and  mirror-like shine, while helping to provide the hair against external aggressions.

size: 200ml

Pros

  • a little goes a long way, I use at least 1.5 tablespoon for my hair length
  • smells great
  • makes hair softer and more manageable
  • makes hair color livelier
  • nice color coordinated packaging base on range
  • has a protective cap

Cons

  • pricey as compared to other hair treatment
Overall
I've always been offered Kerastase hair treatment when I asked for salon treatments.  Though purchasing this is quite pricey, I would calculate the times I can treat my hair and it's still cheaper as compared to having it done in a salon.  

First time using the Chroma Reflect Masque, I felt it's a bit sticky after first wash and I find my hair a bit hard to comb!  This happens to most hair masque I've tried so I did not panic.  What I love about this masque is on it's 2nd and 3rd and the days to come.  I can definitely see my hair shinier and more manageable.  

Tips
 from Kerastase
  • Apply 1 to 2 teaspoons to clean, towel-dried hair. 
  • Massage through from roots to ends, focusing on sensitized areas. 
  • Leave on for 10 minutes. 
  • Emulsify with warm water and rinse thoroughly.
from AMW
  •  use this treatment once or twice a week depending on the degree of damage of your hair
  • try to concentrate the product on damaged areas
  • massage onto hair and scalp gently, be gentle especially when hair is wet
  • if your hair is very damaged, do not save up on product and use as much as you can to help save your hair!
Will I repurchase?
Definitely.  I did!

Where to purchase and how much?
I bought mine at First Aid, Greenbelt for, Php2,625 (approx $57.00), other salons do sell these too
For international readers, there are online sites selling these.
