Kerastase Nutridefense (Dosage Gluco-active) Review

After more than half a lifetime ignoring my hair, I finally decided to give it a break and plunged wholeheartedly into the world of expensive hair products that promised to do wonders for my hair.  To be honest, my hair is blessed with curl - not the Shirley Temple type curl, but the variable, some of it in waves and some of it in frizz type curl.  Hair stylists would usually cluck over it, and the experience of having them do that eventually led me to either have it cut short and layered (a disaster when it grows out as it's like a pyramid, I really needed a trim every 6 weeks) or just in one length, in a pony tail all the time, to keep it tame. Nowadays I spring for a regular rebonding at one of the Korean salons.  And with that rebonding, I also decided  in for a penny, in for a pound, so I treat my hair to the aforementioned hair products.

I was first introduced to the Kerastase line more than 10 years ago but it was (still is) pricey.  Well, it is pricey, but in my opinion, worth it.  

Kerastase Nutridefense is a leave-in spray, and this is what it says on the front of the bottle:  Anti drying nutri protective spray,  dry and sensitive hair.  It's a styling product, and actually has nothing to do with frizz or curl!  :)

This is what it claims to do:  Hair is replenished and shiny, full of softness and incredibly light.  

Usage:  Use Spray Nutridefense daily for optimum protection.  Shake and spray onto lengths.  Avoid the roots.  Complements Masque Nutridefense.  Avoid spraying towards the eyes or inflamed skin.  In case of contact, rinse immediately with plenty of water.  Shake before use.

How I use it:  on days when I use a plain-Jane shampoo.  I towel and air-dry my hair, and spray it on to make combing easier.  Despite the rebonding I still get tangles about three-fourths of the way down my hair.  I do exactly what the instructions say - spray it on the lengths and near the ends of my hair.  Two or three spritzes is enough. I comb through.  The effect of silky smoothness is noticeably pronounced when my hair dries completely.  It's really really silky smooth.  The scent is mild, not at all overpowering.  

Would I recommend it to others?  Yes!
Note:  I'm not too sure they still sell it, though. Price: I think it was USD27 for a 200ml bottle spray.
