A very good hair mask must have two basic qualities – providing intensive action and nice consistency. It offers complex and deep action, which makes it different from hair conditioners. Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax Nutri-Huile Anti-Frizz with palm oil and shorea oil is one of the most popular hair masks.
According to the manufacturer, Kerastase Oleo-Relax smoothing masque provides the most effective action in case of unruly, frizzy and dry hair. Palm oil moisturises very well and creates a protective layer on hair. Although it is the oil for low and medium porosity hair (contains saturated and monounsaturated acids), there is a reason why it has been included in the product.
How does it work?
Kerastase Oleo-Relax masque with palm oil provides rebellious hair with complex action. It:
- deeply moisturises
- smooths, softens and disciplines
- facilitates detangling and styling
- protects from unwanted action of dampness
- reduces frizz and static
What does it contain?
Palm oil is justifiably included in Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax masque. Blended with other ingredients, it makes a mixture that is essential to unruly strands. Some ingredients aren’t natural or safe for your hair. What are the components of the product?
1) Palm oil – extracted from African oil palm of high concentration of essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and carotene; it is responsible for moisturising, nourishing and protecting hair e.g. from excessive dampness, UV radiation etc.
2) Shorea oil – extracted from shala tree – evergreen tree found at the foot of Himalayas; similarly to palm oil, it contains saturated and monounsaturated acids, therefore it has very similar properties.
3) Potato Starch Modified – a plant substance which is extracted from potatoes through mechanical process; it excellently absorbs excessive sebum, cleanses and tightens pores.
4) Silicones and alcohols – the masque contains both harmful and harmless silicones and alcohols; some silicones create a protective layer on hair surface whereas others can cause overburdening; “good” alcohols moisturise, “bad” alcohols make hair dry and frizzy again.
