I have damaged hair. Aside from my awful habit of bi-weekly blow-dry and flat iron sessions that wreak havoc on my locks, I’m still growing out sections that were disastrously dyed at a salon last September. Leaving with my wallet over a hundred bucks lighter and a halo of orange roots circling my head, I decided I was done dyeing my hair for good- with chemical dyes, at least.
So far, I’ve kept up that promise with the help of messy yet effective hair henna, but nursing my fragile strands back to health wasn’t an easy task.
Cue my holy grail hair product: It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin.
It’s priced reasonably at $18 for 4 fl oz, which tends to last at least a year. My love for this product knows no bounds, so I have the gigantic 10 fl oz bottle that will hopefully last me to the grave.
I use this truly miraculous product every time I wash my hair. While my strands are still damp, I squirt a few spritzes into the palm of my hand and work the product from roots to ends. Then, I comb it with my handy dandy Wet Brush (side note: there is no hair tool better) to make sure it’s evenly distributed.
Back in the dark days of especially weak and flimsy hair, right after I had just gotten the dye job of my nightmares, the difference this product made was so noticeable that I couldn’t be without it for even one hair wash.
After a month of using this stuff, my broken ends were in much better shape and my hair was softer and stronger. I attribute that new strength to the added keratin. There’s a cheaper version you can purchase without the added protein, but I suggest you choose this one if you really want to make a difference in your hair. If you already have healthy hair, then the other one will do.
Leave-in conditioners come and go, but this baby stays and stays and stays. Make room in your hair product stash because you won’t be able to quit this product once you try it out.
