Weak and damaged. No, I’m not talking about your ex, I’m talking bout your hair!
Not specifically your hair obviously. Your’s might be really shiny and healthy! But for those that aren’t so lucky, Intense Boost in the way forward.
The 30 minute treatment created by KeraStraight is one of the most popular hair treatments around. It’s an intense conditioning and repairing treatment that lasts up to 30 days, producing renewed, repaired and re-hydrated hair from the inside out. It’s perfect for anyone who finds that their dry and damaged hair ruins their mornings.
I don’t know about you, but shiny, healthy looking hair has always been a goal for me so when I was offered the chance to try out the treatment, I jumped at it!
Intense Boost was formulated to work alongside KeraStraight’s better known KS Ultimate treatment to add extra moisture and shine to the hair. It’s a great stand alone treatment also and can also be used after coloring your hair (which is great for anyone who bleaches their hair and finds their hair feels/looks very dry and damaged).
I had the treatment by itself. What’s so fantastic about this treatment is it uses two of KeraStraight’s existed products, the protein and moisture mask, to create amazing results. This means that you can purchase the masks from a KeraStraight stockists to use at home and can prolong healthy hair for even longer!
These two elements to the treatment both offer different benefits but when put together, give the best results.
The Protein Boost is what strengthens the hair with added softness. It uses an advanced blend of hydrolyzed wheat proteins which deliver the strength and repair the hair from the inside out.
The Moisture Boost delivers the lightweight hydration to the hair for luxurious shine.
I got my Intense Boost done at WOW hairdressers, Bedfordshire and the whole experience was really lovely! It’s certainly worth adding another 30 minutes to your average cut and blow dry next time you go to the hair dressers. Here’s a run down of what to expect when you get an Intense Boost:
The Treatment Process
First of all, your hair will be washed with Pre-Treatment Cleanser twice. Unlike your average shampoo, this deep cleans your hair (think face cleansers) and takes out any existing product build up. It also opens up the hair cuticles which makes it easier for the treatment to penetrate into the hair and also softens it so it is prepped for the next stage.
The hair is then sectioned and the treatment is applied to each part of the hair.
This is where the science happens. The treatment is dried into the hair 100% with a rough blow dry (it can be straightened into the hair as well) which seals and locks the product into the hair. The protein boost has a ‘popcorn effect’- a built in cortex created as hair dries to 100 per cent stage.
The hair is then rinsed thoroughly.
The hair is styled to your choice. I like big, bouncy hair so volume is a must. Gina, Business Development Manager at KeraStraight, applied my treatment and styled me hair and BOY was I pleased with the results:
My hair has never looked so healthy and revitalized! I thought that hair this shiny and manageable wasn’t as accessible as the magazines make out until I had this treatment. I just can’t put into words how pleased I am with the results.
The treatment itself is worth £30 which is an investment when you think that the treatment lasts 30 days, leaving your hair as silky smooth and shiny as the girls on the front of the hair magazines!
Your dream hair is actually possible with this treatment. I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to give their hair an extra ‘boost’, regardless of whether your hair is currently damaged or dry. This treatment makes the world of difference and I can honestly say my hair has never looked so good! No more frizz and more manageable locks are always a bonus in my eyes!
