KÉRASTASE // DENSIFIQUE

I know it must feel like the only hair products we review are from Kérastase, but they are just so damn good at what they do, and their Densifique collection is no exception.

I’m pretty sure if you asked any girl in the world what they wished was different about their hair, almost everyone would say that they wished they had more of it.

KERASTASE // BOUCLES D’ART

Just before my last haircut I was feeling super blah about my hair. I know I can’t really do that much to change it since my hair is naturally very fine and curly, so no bangs, no short cuts, etc. etc.

After a few years of mostly blowing it out every time I showered, I figured, why not be a bit lazy and let my hair run wild again; get a bit curly? Well, turns out I forgot how to manage curly hair, which ended up in my first attempt looking poodle-esque, I was even called Curly Sue at work. Fun.

Anyways, while I was grilling my hairstylist for hair tips and advice (she has fine, curly hair as well), she suggested trying out either Kérastase’s Boucles d’Art mousse or their Spray à Porter sea salt spray. I opted for the Boucles d’Art because it is a very lightweight foam and my hairstylist assured my it wouldn’t feel like I had product in my hair (I absolutely HATE the feeling of product in my hair).

As per her recommendations, I didn’t wrap a towel around my head as soon as I got out of the shower. Instead, while your hair is soaking wet, gently run a wide-toothed comb through your hair (I do this already while the conditioner is soaking in), and add a little hair oil to the ends. Then grab your mousse and apply a pump of the product per section, taking care to apply a little more around the face. Don’t be afraid of using too much and getting crunchy mousse hair à la 90’s, this stuff won’t do that. I personally just make a very voluminous half-ponytail with an embarassing yellow claw clip at this point and let it air dry until I go to bed. However, my hairstylist suggested that you could always create some curls with your fingers, secure them with a jaw clip, then go to sleep on them–I would maybe only recommend this for girls with less curly hair, it would make for an uncomfortable sleep.
