Beauty sleep for your strands

It might be time for me to scale back my pre-bedtime prep… Between taking about 15 minutes and featuring more than 10 different products,  you’d think I could say “I woke up like this.” (Alas, I can’t.) But before I put the brakes on my evening hair-, skin- and body-care ritual, I’m going to have to try Rene Furterer’s new Karité Intense Overnight Nourishing Treatment Leave-In.

Designed to repair hair damage and hydrate lackluster locks, think of this product as night cream for your hair. You may be inclined to think that this treatment would be thick and heavy since it’s packed with all that nourishment, but au contraire, mon frère. Instead, this lightweight serum is absorbed by the hair and dries to a powdery finish, so there’s no residue on your pillow (or your head for that matter). In case you’re worried that this overnight treatment may force you to wash your hair each morning (quelle horreur!), 86% of users say they did not have to shampoo immediately after use.

Packed with shea butter that gives your strands a steady stream of fatty acids, vitamins and a complex that helps prevent breakage, this is one way to get a jump on a good hair day the night before. And as an added bonus, the delicate orange blossom scent just might help lull you off to sleep…
