[Review] Kérastase Reflection Chroma Captive Shine Intensifying Hair Masque

Today I'm going to review Kérastase Reflection Chroma Captive Shine Intensifying Masque. My hair is quite dry and is damaged from all the years of dyeing it, bleaching it and from heat styling so I am always on the lookout for a good hair treatment. Over the years I have tried many products which include drugstore brands and specialist brands but the one that I always go back to is Kérastase. I have been buying the "Kérastase Reflection Masque Chroma Riche" for about 1.5 years now and have not looked back, however it has been sold out on Lookfantastic for awhile now so I thought I would try another one of their products. I bought the Shine Intensifying Masque for £19.65. Each 200ml tub is roughly enough for me to use for 3-4 months depending on my usage in the week which is either 1-2 times. This masque is suppose to be for medium-thick sensitized coloured hair, just right for me then.

I love that the shine intensifying masque is
actually a pink product however it does have a
strong perfume smell to it which will not be to everyone's taste. 

After shampooing I will gently wring my hair of excess water and then apply the masque to the ends of my hair, I leave it on for about 2-3 minutes or if I'm going for an intensive treatment I will leave it on for 20-30 minutes (however the weather in the UK right now does not permit me to do so). After washing out the masque my hair felt immediately softer and smoother. The smell also wasn't as overpowering when finishing drying and styling my hair. I wasn't so sure if it made me hair shinier but it definitely made it softer which was what I was looking for. All in all I was quite happy with it although I have to say I prefer "Reflection Masque Chroma Riche" but that may just be because of habit and to me the smell isn't as overpowering as the Shine Intensifying masque. Another thing I like about Kérastase masque's is that they do not leave my hair greasy unlike other brands that I have tried which were either not hydrating enough or so hydrating it left my hair greasy.
