I hope you all had a lovely weekend! As usual, I was busy at work, therefor the lack of blog posts! :(
But here am I today, just returned home after an afternoon spent at hairdresser :)
A day of pampering myself, one would think...but actually, I really don't like goint to the hairdresser that much!
I force myself to go there every two months, when my dark roots start showing too much, lol
I think I personally take better care of my hair at home, than any hairdresser ever did in a hair salon!
But, I do leave the colouring to the professionals as I do have high requests when talking about my hair colour, and given the fact that I'm naturally way darker, I don't want the risk of turning some strange yellow, or orange colour, or even worse, damaging my hair in the process of highlighting it.
So, I always leave this part to the expert hands.
What bothers me about going to the hairdressers in general, is that they're always in a hurry ( I can understand that- time is money for them), and my hair, being so long & difficult to detangle, requires some extra time...
I always cringe at the thought how they always detangle my hair in a harsh way, when just a little bit of detangling spray & a wide tooth comb would "work magic".
And then, when blowdrying, they use the maximum heat..ughhh
I truly hate that part! I wish I could leave the hairdresser's salon with my wet hair & continue the rest at home (detangling, blowdrying, straightening...)
How do you feel about that?
Did you ever experience similar problems?
Anyways, my today's visit to the hairdresser inspired me to do this blog post, about one product that I've been loving so much when talking about my hair care, and that I highly recommend to anyone who wants to have a healthy, beautiful looking hair!

|Kérastase Elixir K Ultime has become one of the|
essential products in my hair care routine.
There are actually more than two different ways of how one can use this oil (remember, this is a product that won't leave your hair oily or greasy and it won't weigh it down. It is an oil, but it's a non-oily formula!):
- I like to use it after I'm done blowdrying & straightening my hair, I use one pump and distribute the oil evenly on the lenghts of my hair.
- You can also use it before blowdrying your hair, apply it on a towel dried hair, but in this case I would avoid straightening your hair with a hair straightener. It would be like frying your hair I guess...ughh
Definitely something to avoid!
This method I'll be using in the summer, when I'll let my hair dry naturally & wear it wavy.
- I also like to use this product as a hair mask (before shampooing my hair).
I'll take 4 -5 pumps (bare in mind that my hair is extra- long, but if you have shorter hair, you'll need less than that!), massage the product in my roots and distribute it on the lenghts.
I'll leave it like this for about 30 min. (but you can leave it less, if you don't have much time on your hands, even 5-10 min. will do!)
Then I'll proceed with washing my hair, blowdrying etc.
- The best tip is actually the one my hairdresser gave me! You can also apply this oil on your roots before actually colouring or highlighting your hair.
This will protect your hair from the damage it can be caused when colouring the hair.
This is a little something I've been doing every time before going to the hairdresser to get my highlights done!
This oil costs around 34 €, it is expensive, but you know I wouldn't recommend something so expensive if I weren't truly in love with it!
My miracle product ;) That I want to share with you :)
Bare in mind that it is super concentrated as all Kérastase products are, so this is something that is going to last you for months & months!
I've had mine for over 4 months now, and you can see how much I've used it on the pic above (& I've really been using it very frequently!!!)
I hope this was helpful girls!
I wish you all a beautiful, healthy & shiny hair ;)
