Straight to the Principal's office: Kerastase's Discipline

 Kerastase's latest release: Discipline

Kerastase's latest release: Discipline

Goody two shoes here reporting from the Principal’s office for flunking Hairology. I was recently written up by Claire for over washing, so I reformed my ways to please my teacher and then Kerastase dropped the gauntlet. I’ve been told it’s time for a little Discipline.

Finding good stuff that works for my hair has been a long and arduous uphill battle, so much that I once likened myself to Sisyphus pushing his oversized boulder. How does one fight frizz, enhance shine, reach voluminous heights (not the Snookie sort) and minimise the amount of time spent wielding a hairdryer? These pressing thoughts plagued me for years until I once and for all kicked drugstore hair care brands to the curb or is it kerb?

What’s changed? Well, Kerastase’s Discipline range unexpectedly made its way to my doorstep a few weeks back and I really haven’t questioned its arrival. In fact, the shampoo, conditioner and masque have become permanent fixtures in the shower.

Now that I wash my hair every other day, I always double cleanse. The first wash aims to get rid of the dirt, sweat and any other environmental nasties. As for the second wash, it takes advantage of the ingredients in Bain Fluidealiste (shampoo), specifically Morpho-Keratin. I like to think of Morpho-Keratin as the hair shaft smoother/perfector.

Once my hair feels properly clean, I then massage a small amount of Fondant Fluidealiste (conditioner) from the mid-lengths to the ends and allow it to work its magic while I wash my face and body. Fondant Fluidealiste protects the hair and further enhances manageability and shine.

Time for the piece de resistance, Kerastase’s Maskeratine – this masque is the weekly pit-stop my hair looks forward to the most. After (double) washing and conditioning, I work in a dime sized amount of product making sure to start from the roots to avoid weighing my hair down. I swear this stuff is an uptown version of Silkience, a hair conditioner P-Cakes bought in bulk when Gillette stopped making it.

Have my Hairology marks improved? Well, when it comes to managing my frizzy, fine, wavy hair I can confidently say I made the grade (well, my hair did). My mane remains soft and shiny for well over 48 hours, it takes less time to style and the greasy second day hair is no more. Does this mean my days of homework are over?
