NECTAR FOR YOUR TRESSES: Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique Review

Hey, babes!

I was recently given the Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique when I visited Pead PR the other week, and have found it's quickly become an absolute necessity for keeping my hair soft and shiny. Since going shorter, I find myself blow drying and straightening my hair quite a lot lately. It's at that awkward length where I can't just wash and go anymore, and it needs a proper style and straighten most days. This is definitely starting to take a toll on my hair - despite using oil serums and masks, it's beginning to feel a bit dry and damaged at the ends from frequent heat styling.

A bit of background on my hair - some of it was bleached around a year ago, and I've gone over it twice with box dye to bring it back to a colour similar to my own natural colour. These parts of my hair are especially susceptible to damage until I grow and trim them out of my hair completely.
That's where the Nectar Thermique comes in - it's a heat protectant product that leaves your hair feeling smooth and undamaged while minimising further damage from heat. I've been using this since I got it and it's definitely making a difference to my hair - it tangles less, and just feels so much better to the touch than without using this beforehand. As per instructions, I apply a little bit to towel-dried hair before using my blow dryer.
The other thing I love about it is the deliciously floral scent - it's not too lingering (in case you love the scent of your shampoo/conditioner more haha) but is just so so pleasant to use. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a luxury heat protectant! It is a bit pricey at NZ $48, but it's worth it to me. Also, a 150ml bottle will last a LONG time! This gets a 5/5 from me.

What's your favourite heat protectant? I'd love to know your recommendations!
