Winter reeks havoc on a lot of us and it's normally the same culprits. My hair has to find an adjustment coming from a more warmer climate and then all of a sudden it's so cold and wearing it out means more frizz, possibly damp and more wash days occur, ugh! Also with the hair being colour treated and soon to be getting more it needs to be kept in good condition. I notice my hair lacks a lot of moisture and various buns and braids come into play to keep the hair safe and also not to keep it in the same hairstyle repeatedly.  You might be thinking KeraStraight but your hair is curly!? I know but with these products, it really didn't matter.

KeraStraight Moisture Mask* £25 (100ml)
Repair / Renew / Hydrate
My hair is obviously in need in a lot of this and I'm already using another protein weekly treatment so mid week I put this in after my shampoo. It's very, very light. Almost water textured so I glide it through the 4 sections I've created and evenly apply it from root and especially paying attention to the tips, I also use a wide tooth comb to distribute it thoroughly. Pin it up and pop a shower cap on for about 20 minutes, rinse out and condition - leave in conditioner, continue with my routine. I have noticed when I leave it to air dry the ends aren't as frizzy and this seems to give it a little added moisture it does need. I'm still using this as a weekly treatment and it's definitely not harmed the hair.

KeraStraight Ultimate Oil* £30 (100ml)
Lightweight / Nourish / Shine
My hair absolutely loves oil. Especially when straight, as I'm kicking back on blowdrys for most this year, I've not yet experienced what it's like on my straight hair but I've used this as a seal. It's amazingly light and as anything heavy it leaves my curls looking weighed down and greased to be baked, this is perfect to give the curls just that added boost of shine. The hair is left soft to touch and smells *inhales*. Whenever I do a twist out, I put this in my hands and untwist and whatever is left on my hand, run it through the hair. Perfect for me!

KeraStraight Moisture Mist* £19.50 (250ml)
Detangle / Hydrate / Revitalise
This one is targeted at hair that is dry, damaged and chemically treated. Well 2/3 for me right now isn't bad so it's perfect spray to bring back some moisture. Especially on the rare days of a leave out, the moisture that's already there is sucked out and the air seems to think it can try suck out more that's not even there. I find by the afternoon my hair can need a boost (btw this isn't being used in conjunction with the ultimate oil) having lighter hair, I notice that with curls frizz and dryness is just so much more noticeable. Therefore keeping it looking luscious is a task. I'm always worried about using 'mists' on my hair because I think 'Yeah, 'mist', more like drench' the curls might end up being dragged down and Beyoncé Grammy Dog Hair performance looking. It doesn't. It reminds me of a light mask or if you was to mix your conditioner and water in a spray bottle and it really does mist out and you can section the hair like I do to make sure it targets each section and it doesn't drench it so the curls are still in tact and it's more moisturised and there's a slight shine to it - not bad! You can use this on towel dried hair and continue onto the rest of your hair routine but I prefer to keep this as a pick me up for my hair.

Do you have any moisture tips?

    I quite like the sound of these, I haven't heard alot about the brand though x

  2. Anything that will give my hair moisture sounds good to me especially since I color treated my hair a bit ago!

  3. Love the sound of the moisture mist. I always find products marketed for Afro-Caribbean curly hair too heavy so I always have to water them down or deal with the frizz! The masque looks good too but I'd probably use the whole thing up on one wash day x
