During the summer I took to the bottle in a BIG way. No, not the gin (although I have developed a penchant for dirty martinis, but only once in a while) but the bleach bottle. And since a haircut is way over due (I normally only manage once a year, which is shockingly poor ) I now have acres of frazzled ombre hair that needs looking after. The ends of my hair are light blonde and, if not looked after properly, very dry and straw-like.
Enter Kerastase Elixir Ultime, which I slather onto my towel dried hair before brushing through and leaving to dry naturally.
I’ve blogged about my cherished hair oil before, but with the damage done by the 4 applications of bleach, I needed a real heavy hitter.
Made with a blend of Maize, Argan, Camellia and Pracaxi oils, this rich elixir smells delicious, although not too heavily perfumed, and sinks into hair leaving it conditioned, smooth and protected without feeling greasy.
I had already been using it before the bleaching, but it’s really come into it’s own since I went half blonde.
It’s not the cheapest hair product around, but a little goes a fairly long way (although with my current waist-length curtain, not as far as it should!)
