Going to gush about Kerastase Oleo Relax Serum
I usually don't like a hair product enough to write up a review, cause usually while they are capable they never blow my mind, however, theres a first for everything.

After reading that Madonna's hairstylist Andy Lecompte uses just this product on Madge's bleached straw like mane to turn it into something glossy and gorgeous I knew I just had to try it. I've used silicone based products before such as John Frieda's Frizz Eaze Line and lets just say that the Oleo Relax serum blew it out of the water.

I have bleach blonde mid length hair that is quite straw like, as soon as i applied this serum to my hair it totally changed it's texture. The serum itself feels like pure silk and once your hair is coated it feels the same. After a blow dry my hair felt amazing, with a great glossy/healthy shine. After i'd ironed my hair it felt even better, so smooth and shiny and as cheesy as it may sound it looked totally like 'photoshoot hair' lol.

You get a 125ml bottle that should last ages because it's so concentrated you only need the smallest amount, 1 or 2 amounts from the handy pump. One great thing about this product is that It does not weigh hair down, unlike the Frizz Eaze serum, just don't go overboard and use more than stated on the packaging.

You can also use a little bit to finish your hairstyle, giving it a smooth, glossy finish that should keep your hair looking great all night by coating your hair with the palms of yr hands, just don't get too near your roots.

There is no hype or rubbish behind this product, it is the holy grail of hairstyling, I can't imagine any coloured hair/thick hair not benefitting from it. It's expensive at 16 pounds but you get what you pay for I guess.

If you want great hair, get this product, it's as simple as that.

this product does work remarkably well! L'oreal used to make a lower end (non-salon) version of this that i'd use religiously (because i could never find Kerastase around where i live) and it made my hair shiny and smooth. i'm not sure if it did anything to treat rough ends, because nothing ever really can, but it certainly did prevent a lot of tangling and snagging that otherwise would have caused more damage.

it's silicone-based but not so thick and heavy as the John Frieda versions. good stuff.

Oh totally, the only thing that can fix damaged hair is to have it cut, BUT, what this serum does is give it the 'appearance' of gorgeous, shiny hair. Hey we all have to cheat right ?

kerastase is amazing. i reccomend the oleo-relax shampoos and the oleum-fusion salon treatment for anyone with anything, pretty much. if you you ask your stylist they will be able to help you pick the right stuff. it is pricy but there is a good chance that you will lose your mind over how good your hair feels.

CHILLINYO!!!
Thank you for that wonderful review...I already spied a bit on my Christmas gift, and there's a kerastase bag for me (everyone knows in my family that I'm obssesed with it) and Santa brought me the serum
so I cannot wait to try it!!!

I think I've already used like 6 of their differents products, and they all work like miracles...
everybody is talking about their prices to be too high, but come on! I spent 30 dollars on the nutridefense mascara, and it last like 4 months!
and I use it one time per week, they usually recommend you to use it every 2 weeks, but my hair really needs to glow
