Kérastase Gloss Appeal & Touche Finale

glossappealOne of the complaints I have about my hair is I can never create that glossy finish unless it’s the hairdresser. Mind you, living in London I suffer from dull, lifeless hair from the hard water so it’s a massive shock when I get shiny locks outside of the city.

To alleviate dreary looking hair, I have been using a serum and an instant shine top-coat spray from Kérastase’s heaving Couture Styling collection. Couture for the hair…well, it was only a matter of time someone would come up with that concept.

In eye-catching purple packaging, these two products give shine and sleekness to tiresome locks without a greasy residue whilst padding on protection from styling tools, etc.

The purple pair smell amazing of course. I use the high-shine polishing serum – Kérastase Touche Finale (which is anti-frizz) sparingly because with my hair a little bit definitely goes a long way.

Kérastase Gloss Appeal is an instant shine top coat spray and does exactly what it says – a top coat to give a gloss finish to your hair. I’m not comfortable spritzing it liberally as the instructions say because even though this claims to be a lightweight formula, it feels like there is something sticky on my hair if I overdo it. That stickiness is more likely to be one of the key ingredients which is silicone and it’s why I reserve using this product for occasional use.

Both items are available from various online retailers with the serum priced at £19.50 (30ml) and the spray at £21 (for 150ml).

    Thanks for the post – I have the exact same complaint with my hair. It looks so great after I’ve left the hairdressers, but when I try and recreate the look at home it’s just not the same. I’ll definitely give these a try! 🙂
