Spring hair styles are full of texture, but a “young, fresh, loose” look doesn’t mean an uncontrolled one. To keep hair bouncy and in shape, you still need styling products.
A new product I’ve loving from Kerastase, Double Force Controle Ultime $36.00 9 fl. oz. is an exceptional way to keep hair under control. As long as you are going to reach for a product, why not make it one that helps as well as beautifies?
This hair finishing spray costs more than drugstore brands, but it does a lot (and does it well), too. It comes in a cool, mint green can, with a spray diffuser top that leaves an assertive, but not assaulting, mist. The product itself, suitable for all hair types, features concentrated fixing polymers that have a strong hold, but still lets your hair move without looking stiff or feeling crunchy. As a test, I sprayed a lot of Double Force Controle Ultime on my hand before I ever tried it on my hair, and when it dried (fast) it was so light, all I saw was a bit of a shine on my skin, and all I felt on it was a light coating. On my hair, it held my usually prone-to-flopping-in-minutes, style for hours without failing. The product also fights frizz when the weather is humid. Another plus? The typical “chemical” scent almost non-existant, and whatever scent I could smell, dissipated quickly.
Yes, you do pay more for high performance, salon products, but you also get a grea multi-tasker with good benefits for your hair, well as a being a strong styling fixative. Ceramides and UV filters help protect and strengthen the fibers of your hair. FYI: ceramides reinforces a hair fiber’s internal structure by mimicking the natural “cement” that seals the cuticle and strengthens hair.
Sounds great to me!
