I use deep conditioner on my platinum hair religiously, which basically means every time I wash my hair. This goes a long way for minimizing signs of damage such as breakage, dryness and lack of shine but it also tends to weigh my hair down and force me to use dry shampoo sooner than I’d like. Whereas regular conditioners generally don’t provide enough smoothing and hydration, there’s a new daily use product designed to repair the hair without leaving residue behind and it’s Klorane’s Conditioning Balm with Desert Date.
Free of silicones that can make your hair fall flat, this supercharged daily conditioner works to repair hair damage on a daily basis while detangling, softening and even relaxing the hair. The not-so-secret ingredient is the desert date, which has evolved to thrive in the hostile Sahel savannah region of Africa. The kernel of this date is jam-packed with essential fatty acids, proteins and polysaccharides that nourish the hair in three ways. First, it reinforces the hair’s protective barrier. Second, it strengthens the cellular “cement” that keeps the hair cuticles smooth. Third, it protects the hairs’ cells so they can hold on to moisture. The result: Healthier-looking and feeling hair that can stand up to the damage caused by heat styling, UV rays and even the simple act of washing and brushing.
If you don’t want to take my word for it, Klorane asked 32 people to test the Conditioning Balm with Desert Date and here’s what they had to say after 15 days:
- 90% reported softer hair
- 89% said their hair was stronger
- 88% observed their hair was more nourished
- 87% saw visible hair repair
- 86% said their hair felt less brittle when brushed
This is convincing enough for me, which is why I’m going to give it a try… What about you?
