Hair is such an important part of how we feel about ourselves. I know that if I have a good hair day, I feel like I can take on the world. Each one of us is different, so what works for one might not work for another. This is why it’s important to find your perfect fit when it comes to your hair care routine. There have been a lot of exciting hair care launches lately, so I’ll jump straight into the products to let you know what’s hot and happening …
Kérastase has launched their most luxurious range yet, which contains the most precious ingredients in the highest concentrations, called Chronologiste. With both in-salon and take home products, Chronologiste offers unequaled results and bathes the hair in radiance and splendor.
To create this new cosmetic treasure, Kérastase has for the first time explored the benefits of a rare and unique molecule for the hair: Abyssine. Discovered by research teams in volcanic cliffs rising from the Pacific Ocean floor, this polysaccharide produced by microalgae can survive under the most extreme conditions, making it the best protection for sensitive skin. Today, combined with gluco-lipide® and Bisablolo, Chronoligiste offers in-depth nutrition for a sublime satin touch and sumptuously gorgeous looking hair.
SOIN GOMMAGE RÉNOVATEUR
Le Soin-Gommage Rénovateur is the first of its kind and is a gorgeous, glittery jelly with ultra fine cleansing grains. Essentially an exfoliator for your scalp and hair, the micro-particles help to cleanse and purify the scalp as well as hair fibres.
How to use: Before cleansing with the Bain Revitalisant. Le Soin-Gommage Rénovateur activates micro circulation to boost ingredients efficiency and multiplies effects of the subsequent treatment. The Abyssine and Oleo complex leaves the hair lightweight, nourished and soft.
LE BAIN REVITALISANT
Enriched with Abyssine, a precious molecule, Bain Revitalisant is a gem of a formula for perfect transformation. The product’s purifying action cleanses scalp impurities as it smoothes the hair fibres, for an unequalled velvet touch.
LA CRÈME DE RÉGÉNÉRATION
The crème de la crème of Kérastase masks, this product concentrates the greatest number of active ingredients, formulated in their highest concentrations, to intensely nourish the hair from scalp to ends. Luxury and hyper-science come together in salons when the treasured qualities of Abyssine meet the unique revitalizing benefits of Caviar Concentrate vital renovator with mimetic caviar. Mixed just before application by the stylist to preserve the integrity and freshness of the precious active ingredients, the regeneration cream and the caviar pearls melt into one single treatment that works like a miraculous elixir for perfectly beautiful hair.
LE PARFUM EN HUILE
This first hair fragrance from Kérastase finishes off the Chronologiste ritual with an inspired, custom-made scent created by master perfumer, Alberto Morillas. Working for the first time with an oil base rather than an alcohol base, this visionary fragrance designer imagined a blend of noble scent notes used in luxury perfumes – tea rose, blond wood and musk – along with an oleo-extract of myrrh. The last step after styling, Chronologiste oil fragrance is a finishing touch of brilliance and softness. Intensely scented and visibly nourished, the hair is radiantly lovely.
An in-salon treatment would go like this:
A relaxing massage with Le Soin-Gommage Rénovateur to smoothen and unify hair fibres.
Cleanse with Le Bain Revitalisant.
A massage with the mixture of La Crème de Régénération and caviar spheres to transform hair fibres and to rejuvenate the scalp.
Parfum en Huile is applied to the hair as the finishing touch
*An at home pamper session would include all the above, except for the caviar spheres – which are only available in-store.
So there you have it. The new and truly luxurious range from Kérastase.
