Type of Hair and Hair Tested On:
The “Nutritive Masque Magistral” is available for both fine hair and thick hair.
This product was tested on thick and dry hair.
The mask has a dense, buttery, rich and lightweight texture.
The “Nutritive Masque Magistral” has a nice smell that lingers on the hair even after washing the product out.
After towel-drying the hair, massage a dollop of the “Nutritive Masque Magistral” onto the lengths and ends of the hair. Leave the product in for 5 minutes and then rinse the hair thoroughly.
We tested the “Nutritive Masque Magistral” twice a week for a whole month and we noticed the mask’s effects instantly. From the first use, the mask made the hair less frizzy, lighter and shinier. The mask also nourished the hair very deeply, making it feel more hydrated and softer to the touch. After a couple of applications, the hair was easier to manage and style, and appeared healthier overall.
One of the major effects of the “Nutritive Masque Magistral” is that it added suppleness and richness to the hair which had a velvety texture and was deeply nourished. However, we noticed that the masque should be washed very thoroughly from the hair by using either cool or cold water and the mask should not be applied to the roots or else the hair will end up feeling heavy, greasy and will clump-up.
The “Nutritive Masque Magistral” by Kerastase Paris retails at an average market price of $47/200 mL which is comparable to Rene Furterer’s “Karité, Intense Nourishing Mask Jar” which sells at $44/200 mL. However, the masque is more expensive than Klorane’s “Repair Mask with Mango Butter” which retails at $22/150 mL and delivers similar effects.
