The Irisome Nectar Thermique by Kérastase comes in a pearly white squeeze tube with a shiny orange screw on cap. The bottle stands up-side down, with the cap being on the bottom to facilitate pouring. On the bottle, you will find the name of the product, the Kérastase branding, as well as all the necessary information, including application tips.
This bottle is quite simple, not very large, so you can easily pack it for a getaway.
This Nectar Thermique is suitable for normal to dry hair.
The brand recommends to apply a chestnut sized amount on washed and towel-dried hair. Massage the product onto lengths and ends and leave-in- DO NOT RINSE! Proceed to blow-dry and style your hair.
The Nectar Thermique smells like a bouquet of fresh flowers!
The texture is quite creamy.
As we all know, extreme heat is really bad for the hair, its kills its structural integrity. And since all women everywhere will not give up going to the salon or self-styling with blow dryers and hair straighteners/curlers, hair product brands have released several heat protection solutions. Unfortunately, they don’t all work!
To help us prepare hair for heat styling, Kérastase released the Nutritive Nectar Thermique, which is a leave-in heat protection treatment that works to shield and smooth your hair. Its purpose is to leave a veil of protection on your hair, prepping it for blow-drying and heat styling.
We noticed that it helps smoothen the look of rough, dull hair, and as a result, hair is left shiny and strong. It also allows hair to be easier to manage and blow-dry. It actually reduces the breakage caused by heat!
Overall, we found that the Kérastase Irisome Nectar Thermique has a definite nourishing and polishing effect on the hair fibre. It protects the hair from heat and makes for a faster blow-dry. Hair is left deeply nourished and shiny.
The Kérastase Irisome Nectar Thermique is sold for 35$ for a 150ml quantity. This product is pricier then L’Oréal Professional’s “Lipidium Absolut Repair Crème De Brushing” which sells at $22.5/125mL, and is also designed to prevent heat damage.
