We mistreat our hair on a daily basis, whether it’s applying heat or pulling on it in our efforts to tame unruly heads of hair, or experimenting with different styles and colours without proper after-chemical care. Our glamorous updos and trendy dye jobs might make us look fabulous, but our hair suffers for it. All the chemical processes and stress on our hair can result in damaged hair that is hard to repair.
Can’t tell if your hair is damaged? There are four easy signs: Lifeless looking hair, split ends, tangled and brittle hair, and dull colour. It’s also worth noting that if you’ve got fine hair, you’ll probably need a different treatment than someone with thick hair (thinner hair is more susceptible to damage but also absorbs treatments faster). To figure it out, we recommend leaving it to the experts, which is where Kerastase’s Resistance Terapiste line comes in.
The Resurrection Plant
The star ingredient of the Resistance Therapiste line is sap from the “resurrection plant” named Myrothamnus Flabellifolia that’s found in South Africa. It is a plant that grows in some of the most arid regions of the planet, and has the ability to come back to life after undergoing a near death state as a result of severe drought (hence the name resurrection plant). During a drought, the plant loses up to 97 per cent of its mass and retracts its stems in order to preserve its core. All it takes to revive it is water. The sap of this plant is obtained from its leaves through a high-temperature water-based extraction in order to obtain the best possible “resurrection” energy to bring our damaged tresses back to life.
