add more shine with kérastase elixir ultime masque

On my last visit to the salon I begged my stylist to give me all her tips to help condition my hair.  Obviously she suggested to get my split ends cut and put in Kerastase Elixier Ultime Beautifying Oil-Enriched Masque.  I've been using it every 2-3 weeks for the past two months.  I wanted to share my experience with the product, hopefully others will find it useful.

Here's a before and after on using the Kerastase.  Both sets of pictures were taken right after blow drying my hair, now straighter or curling iron. I have naturally curly hair and it tends to get really frizzy...all of the time.  So I usually curl my hair in the morning to get rid of the friz.  The masque can be a little heavy on the hair, so it's not recommend to use it that often, especially if you have oily hair.  It's also recommended that to only use it on the lower ends of the hair.  I used the masque all over my hair, because I have frizz all over!

The masque is relatively easy to use.  When showering use the treatment on hair, try to get out as much water as possible, then put in hair.  I comb through my hair and then put it in a bun and let sit for 5-10 minutes. My favorite part of the treatment is the floral smell of the masque. I can really see the difference when I curly my hair.  As you can see in the pictures below, the hair is more conditioned and healthy.

I'd highly recommend, especially for the summer when we experience a lot of damage to our hair.  The masque is $30-$65 (pending where you order).  If I were to guess, I'd say there are about 25 treatments in the jar.
