Kenra Revisted -- Environmental Damage
It’s wildfire season in Montana. That sounds terrible, doesn’t it? It is. It’s killing my lungs, and my sinuses are feeling chunky. It’s also taking a significant toll on my skin and hair. In addition to sneezing like crazy, I have the problem of my hair being unseasonably dry and brittle. Kenra reached out about trying their Platinum Snail Line, as well as some new spray products that they just released.
The entire line is formulated without sulfates or parabens, and no snails were harmed in the making of this product. That’s good, right? It also fights ten signs of aging hair, all of which are also the signs of severe environmental damage. Boosts shine, increases thickness, reduces breakage, tames frizz and flyaways, hydrates hair, improves elasticity, relieves scalp irritation, increases manageability, decreases coarseness, provides heat protection, and is made for ALL hair types. Woah. Big list.
Kenra, a true salon brand, has been used by countless celebrity hair stylists, including Michael Silva (he does Kim Kardashian’s hair!) and Guy Tang. The CC creme is phenomenal. You apply it evenly through freshly washed hair and then style. It really does increase manageability and decreases flyaways. It doesn’t weigh down my hair at all and makes it smell amazing. I’m not a huge fan of the pump. It comes out only a little bit at a time. I like that this makes it hard to use too much, but it takes longer to get the amount that I need. Even with the snails, it’s not slimy or weird. Totally wonderful.
The shampoo and conditioner are also fantastic. They don’t strike the same amount of wonder as the CC Crème, but they still are amazing. The shampoo is much more liquid than my usual shampoo, but leaves my hair silky and clean. The conditioner also helps keep the frizz down as well, which is then intensified by the CC Crème.
So, let’s talk spray products. I also tested out Kenra Platinum’s new Heat Block Spray 22 and Kenra’s new Shaping Spray. The heat protectant spray has beeswax in it, so I felt that using heat on my hair made my hair very sleek and shiny after using it. I have a love-hate relationship with hairspray in general. I don’t like my hair to feel untouchable, but I also like a decent amount of hold. This does the trick. Because it’s alcohol-free, it’s not drying and doesn’t make that crispy feeling. It holds my hair in place forever. For those of us with thick hair, this is the opposite of a problem. I want something to keep my hair well in place, and this is it.
I love the hairspray and will be repurchasing, and I also think that the CC Crème is going to become a permanent staple for me.
