Hair Growing Tips and Kerastase Nutri-Thermique hair mask review

Kerastase Nutritive hair masque and hair growth tips

My hair is damaged as my regular readers know, well it's getting much better since I have only been dying the top of my hair, therefore, leaving the underneath of it to grow out. I don't want to leave this too much so that it looks chavvy but my bleach literally grew out and new hair grew, I left it a year and my hair completely grew back. Finally I dyed it again and the hair dresser said it's in great condition now so I can continue to dye the underneath, but surely then i'd be back to square one? Instead, I will get the underneath done maybe every 6 months, instead of every 7 weeks like I used to do! 

Now that my hair is finally better, which by the way has taken me years! I trial so many hair masks because sleeping in a hair mask is so strengthening for the hair. My hair dresser told me not to use hair treatments that you are only meant to have on for 3-5 minutes,it means they're not strong enough. Now, I look for those which are meant to be left on for 10-30+ minutes and always try to sleep in them when I can. I literally lather my hair in the mask and then wash it off the next day, my hair actually feels like it's had a new lease of life. Then my mum came home with this, I am a huge fan of Kerastase, it's like Loreal's premium brand and is sold in Salons. The hair dresser who sold us it said that it would strengthen weak and damaged hair. 
As you can see from this photo, the texture is quite fluffy but smooth, it has a sheen to it. This sheen seems like it is a protective mask when it is on the hair. The benefit of this product is that you literally don't need to use much, if you're like me and tend to scoop a whole tub out onto your head, this isn't necessary with this. It has lasted me for a few weeks now as I only use a 50p piece finger full.

I run it through my hair and then use a wide tooth comb which is a shower friendly one to gently comb through my hair, this makes sure it is all over the head.
When you wake up, it literally does make your hair feel amazing.
After a few days of using this mask, I have noticed huge differences in the condition of my hair.Many people have commented on the shinyness of my hair and complimented how good the condition looks. Whilst some hair masks only appear to make your hair shiny and healthy, it's obvious from one use that this product actually works on the inside and the outside of your hair.

Tips i've been told along the way for good hair strength, which equals maximum growth:
There isn't an obvious quick fire way to grow your hair, it does take time so here are a few tips to help you with your journey, 

-Hard, but avoid using heat on your hair! Apparently hair drying (blow drying) is so damaging for your hair, I suppose you literally are just blasting your head with heat. If you MUST blow dry it, turn the heat off and put it on the coolest setting this will stop frizz as well;that horrible humid holiday hair look). I've been letting mine dry naturally (AFRO) and I  honestly have seen so much difference, it's got so thick.

-Even harder, avoid dying your hair, because this tip is so difficult, just do what I did and try to leave your hair a bit longer before you re-dye it, it really made the difference with my hair.

-Treat it like a piece of silk; minimum brushing as brushing snags your hair out.

-EAT your way to healthy hair; Water of course is a goddess when it comes to everything, skin,nails, healthy hair. Apparently, if you snap a vitamin E capsule and mix it in with your shampoo this is extremely good for your locks. I have two evening primrose oil tablets a day, I've found that these really help. Biotin is a vitamin which is especially to prevent hair loss, apparently Biotin shampoo and Biotin capsules are amazing for hair growth, as are oily foods like fish. If you're like me and HATE fish, try Omega 3 Capsules.

-Very difficult but the best way to start, get all of your split ends cut off! Otherwise these will snap from the shaft of your hair and you could be left bald. Nothing makes your hair grow more than getting it trimmed. I got all of mine chopped off, because it was SO dead, and started again - it felt healthier within seconds.

-AVOID CLIP IN EXTENSIONS! They snagged my hair out and gave me bald patches on the sides of my scalp because of excessive use, they are not damage free. I have banned myself from ever using 'clip-ins' ever ever ever again. 

Hooray to good hair days
