@KerastasePH Paris 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Gift Box

It was two years back when I first discovered my hair’s best friend, Kerastase Elixir Ultime. That has remained true to this day. My impression of this wonder product has definitely gone beyond sheer excitement.

Catch Kerastase & Bench Fix at The Gallery, Greenbelt 5 this Weekend

Kerastase The Gallery
I had my hair and scalp diagnosed today by the Kerastase experts at The Gallery in Greenbelt 5. My scalp was massaged and treated with Kerastase Sensidote Dermo-Calm Leave-on serum. It was the most relaxing 10 minutes I had this week. The treatment addresses issues of sensitive scalps. Mine was said to be oily, which Sensidote is also good for. Sensidote is also great for sensitive scalps, those prone to hair loss and dandruff.


Trying out Hair Treatments from HBC

My forever favorite is Opal’s 1 minute treatment conditioner primarily because it performs as good as its Kerastase counterpart. I am partial towards Opal.  I love Kerastase as well but it is just too much on the pocket.  I would rather spend my extras on gadgets when I know there’s a brand that’s really good without hurting my pocket book as much. Because I needed to find out for myself what works best, especially so that my favorite Opal conditioner is not anymore available in the same store I usually buy my supply from, I needed to get my damaged hair the fix that it badly needs.  I checked out our local HBC and just browsed through its aisles of hair conditioner and here’s the first that I found.

Hortaleza Hair Spa, P99 (approx. $2.00)

After getting my hair rebonded the second time after 10 years, I was told by the attendant that it is ideal for rebonded hair.  I used it twice or thrice but I was not so satisfied.  It has a menthol feel on the head and my hair was conditioned enough right after, but it just did not impress me so much.  It did not last the second wash.  I think this should be a benchmark for a good hair conditioner.  It comes for cheap, less than a hundred bucks.  I think it’s a good thrice a week treatment but I don’t think I would buy another jar in the future.
