I have always been a little bit on the fence about Keratin. It always seemed like too many harsh chemicals -- and way too close to my head. Ah -- I just couldn't even bare to attempt it. Luckily some friends at L’Oréal Professionnel insisted I come a little outside my comfort zone and give a whirl to their new Pro-Keratin Refill collection.
The L’Oréal Professionnel Pro-Keratin Refill is a professional haircare range that targets damaged and weak hair caused by mechanical, chemical and environmental agressors and leaves hair feeling 70% stronger.
check, check and check -- now that I know I am an ideal candidate, let's get a little education.
WHAT IS KERATIN:
Hair is made up of 85% Keratin and is what gives hair shine, flexibility and strength. Natural Keratin is damaged and lost overtime due to mechanical, chemical and environmental factors.
...and when the going gets tough, the touch bring in the big guns (oh yeah, and science).
- Pro-Keratin Complex – consists of Amino Acids and Wheat Proteins that mimic the hair’s natural keratin structure. This technology instantly strengthens hair to compensate for the natural loss of Keratin and reinforces hair at the surface. It also provides daily protection by creating a defensive shield around the hair fiber to protect against further damage from external aggresors.
- Incell – a lipid molecule that penetrates the cuticle to fill and repair fragile areas of the hair fiber leaving it feeling soft and strong.
Well that doesn't seem that bad -- and I was surprised at how gentle the products actually were. No harsh chemicals here!
- Hair feels 70% stronger*
