Hair is a topic I don’t talk about very regularly on youtube or even my blog, but I think it is by far the one I get most questions on. I have naturally been blessed with abundant thick hair, but I must admit that it isn’t as beautiful and silky as it might look in my pictures and videos and when I walk out of the shower it is actually a big frizzy mop.
You may know if you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (if you don’t then please do my username is @jasminabpuri on Instagram and jasminabharwani on Snapchat), that my husband and I recently went on holiday to Dubai. Dubai is always pretty humid but during the month of July humidity was just at a different level altogether. The mix of the super intense heat and over 70% humidity most days made it almost impossible to breathe when you were outside, and this was obviously not good news for frizzy haired gals like me!
I had anticipated that the blow-dry I got in London before leaving would probably last about 30 seconds when I stepped out of the airport, but I had taken some precautions such as getting a Kerastase anti frizz treatment at the wonderful Aer Salon in Kensington before I left (This treatment worked wonders so if you would like me to tell you more about it please do let me know in the comments and I will do a separate post), but I wasn’t very hopeful.
When I went for my blow-dry, after washing my hair the stylist recommended applying a product I had never used before instead of my usual heat protectant, that was the Keratine Thermique by Kerastase. Its described as a smoothing taming milk which claims to protect your hair from heat and also smooth out unruly hair. I am not one for using a lot of products on my hair, as I find that most times it just weighs it down and makes the blow-dry last half the time, but given I was going away to a very humid destination I decided to give this a go and boy was I impressed!
For the first time in years when I reached my hotel room and looked at myself in the mirror I didn’t have crazy looking hair, it was perfect! The blow-dry was still intact despite the 8 hour flight, my hair didn’t look greasy, the curls held and best of all it wasn’t frizzy!
This product has honestly been a god send during my time in Dubai, it has kept my hair under control, even my shorter bangs which usually curl up as soon as I walk into a little bit of humidity. I love the texture of the product, its very light and milky. Its also great that it doubles up as a heat protectant as it means you don’t have to pile more product onto your hair and most of all I love the fact that it smoothes your hair without weighing it down. It is specially designed to combat humidity and frizziness and you only need the tiniest amount, which means 150ml bottle will last you a very long time! The product also added shine to my hair and left it feeling super silky and hydrated.
I have definitely found a new favourite which I will be taking with me on every holiday from now on! I hope you give it a go and love it as much as I do.
