Kérastase Spray À Porter

3/28/2015



Investments into my hair care stash have been paying off big time and I've completely been smitten by Kérastase as a brand. I'm in love with their hair mask and shampoo I want to review in the future but I've especially been impressed with the Kérastase Spray À Porter. I've never used texturising or sea salt sprays in the past but I have done my homework prior to settling on just one offering. I've kept my eye on the Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray because it's probably one of the most popular sea salt sprays around. However, I really don't want to compromise shine whilst this sea salt spray is known for mattifying the strands significantly. I've also been eyeing some regular texturising sprays and I probably shall treat myself with one in the future but I've mostly been focused on achieving that French girl hair - a bit scruffy, a bit fuzzy but polished at the same time. You know how effortlessly chic French women are and, even though their hair looks un-styled, it does take some work behind the scenes to achieve the natural, effortless look. Exactly the same goes for the French 'no make-up, make-up looks' they're famed for. Although salt sprays are great for adding texture, in general they’re just a little too mattifying - they take away all hair's shine and that doesn't sit well with scruffy texture. After all, we're aiming for cool instead of unkept hair, right ladies? In this aspect, it's rather hard to find one which will provide hair with extra movement, volume, light waves/tousled look and thickness without making hair look dull or feeling crispy under fingers. A good sea salt spray will allow natural movement in the hair, meaning you get all the benefits of a salt spray but without that aforementioned crispy, dry feeling.

Ulaganje u njegu kose mi se prilicno isplatilo i u potpunosti me odusevio Kérastase kao brend. Zaljubljena sam u njihovu masku za kosu i jedan njihov sampon koji namjeravam uskoro recenzirati no ponajvise me impresionirao sprej Kérastase Spray À Porter. Nikada ranije nisam koristila teksturizirajuce niti sprejeve na bazi sa morskom soli no temeljito sam se informisala prije nego sam sve svoje teznje i ocekivanja prebacila na pleca samo jednog od njih. Na oku sam drzala Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray posto to mora biti jedan od najpopularnijih slanih sprejeva na trzistu. Ipak, nisam zeljela praviti kompromis niti rizikovati gubitak sjaja kose a to je upravo ono sto je popratna mana ovog hvaljenog slanog spreja. Takodjer sam imala u vidu par teksturizirajucih sprejeva i mislim da cu se u buducnosti pocastiti jednim no, za sada, sam najvise fokusirana na postizanje stilizovane kose kakvu nose i vole Francuskinje - kosa je pomalo neuredna, svaka dlaka nije na svom mjestu no u tom haosu postoji odredjena sredjenost. Kako se kaze, rijec je o organiziranom haosu. Inace su Francuskinje poznate po specificnom sik izgledu koji njeguju a koji licno jako volim te, iako kosa mozda djeluje nemarno namjestena, nemojte biti zavarane jer je dosta truda ulozeno da izgleda upravo tako - opusteno lijepo i prirodno. Isti princip se primjenjuje na njihov 'no make-up, make-up look' koji je populariziran. Iako sprejevi sa morskom soli predstavljaju izvrsno oruzje za izrazaj teksture kose, generalno gledajuci, dosta su skloni matiranju kose - u potpunosti uklanjaju sjaj sto i ne djeluje najljepse u kombinaciji sa nemarnim francuskim stilizovanjem. Ipak zelimo da kosa izgleda kul a ne zapusteno, zar ne? I doista je nimalo lagan zadatak pronaci slani sprej koji ce kosi pruziti volumen, prozracnu gustocu, gibljivost pri pokretu, blage valove a da kosa ne bude uskracena sjaja te da pod prstima ne osjetimo sol. Kvalitetan slani sprej ce uciniti da dobijemo ono najbolje i da nema kompromisa.





Kérastase Spray À Porter 150ml (£17.85 via lookfantastic.com) is all that and more! You can use it on freshly washed, damp hair just before your air dry/ blow dry it or on second day hair along with some heat which will make the hair go up, up and away! This spray sits somewhere between a salt and texture spray because it isn't too salty (if that makes sense), adding an airy thickness and grip throughout the day without weighing down strands with residue. You also don't need to use much - I've used 1/3 bottle within a month of literally every day use. I like to spray it on my crown and scalp for extra volume and add it in the lengths for a more effortless look. Having fine, straight hair means that I'm lacking in the volume department while I need to smooth out my ends to prevent them from being frizzy. It's the combination type of hair meaning that I need to divide what I do on my scalp and my ends since if my hair gets too soft and glossy throughout - it turns lank, heavy end weighted down at the crown area so I have no choice to pull it up in a ponytail. This way, I get lots of volume and movement while ends aren't dried out. I do add some leave-in conditioner (such as the Redken Extreme Anti-Snap) or a touch of oil (e.g. Avon Supreme Oils) just on the ends so they stay shiny and conditioned. I also get a beautiful wave with this sea salt spray but its most noticeable when I air dry my hair and don't comb it - not a look I'm going with on rainy, cold days such as this one but I will show you the effect as soon as the really good weather kicks in. It's the beachy wave type of thing - just a little bit more undone. Now I just apply it, blow dry the hair and comb through gently (no tangles, yay!). Frizz is also tamed and if I feel my hair's losing shape - I just rustle it up with my fingers and it stays pouffed up (in a good way). It has also saved me on numerous occasions when it refreshed my second day hair and I must say that Spray À Porter + blow drying gives an amazing hair day. I think I like this even more than my dry shampoo and that's huge in my world! Kérastase hair care is fab and I'm already planning a repurchase along with some new bits. Have you ever tried a sea salt spray?

Kérastase Spray À Porter 150ml cca 48KM preko lookfantastic.com) mi je pruzio sve navedeno i k tome, jos! Mozete ga koristiti na svjeze opranoj, mokroj kosi tik pred susenje zrakom ili fenom. Takodjer ga mozete koristiti da osvjezite kosu drugog dana nakon pranja tako sto cete kosu susiti fenom stoga ce toplina da aktivira proizvod i kosi podari volumen i svjezinu. Ovaj slani sprej se nalazi negdje izmedju kategorije klasicnog slanog spreja i teksturizirajuceg spreja posto nije isuvise slan. Kosi pruza gustinu i ucini dlaku debljom na pogled i dodir ali je ne opterecuje i ne otezava. Takodjer nije potrebno mnogo spreja po koristenju - potrosila sam 1/3 bocice tokom mjeseca doslovno svakodnevnog koristenja. Volim nanijeti ovaj slani sprej na tjeme, bas uz liniju kose ali i na vrh tjemena za postizanje volumena ('podize' dlaku od koze) a kada ga nanesem kroz cijelu duzinu kose dobijem blago valovitu teksturu. Posto je moja kosa tanka i ravna, odmah znate da mi kosa pati od nedostatka volumena a istovremeno mi je potrebno da se narocito brinem o krajevima koji su skloni naelektrisanju. Radi se o kombinovanom (mjesovitom) tipu kose sto znaci da na razlicit nacin tretiram tjeme i krajeve kose. Iako je mekoca i glatkoca nesto sto prija krajevima, ni slucajno ne smijem kosu cijelom duzinom zagladiti posto je to znacajno oteza i onda krajevi 'vuku' kosu ka dole i volumen se na tjemenu izgubi. Na kraju mi ne preostaje nista drugo vec da kosu svezem u rep. Na ovaj nacin, koristeci slani sprej, kosa dobije dosta na volumenu i punoci a krajevi nisu isuseni. Ponekada volim iskljucivo na krajeve nanijeti neki lijep leave-in (poput Redken Extreme Anti-Snap) ili njezno ulje (npr. Avon Supreme Oils) kako bi krajevi zadrzali sjaj i ostali njegovani. Posebno lijepu valovitu teksturu dobijem sa ovim Kérastase slanim sprejem kada kosu osusim na zraku i ne cesljam je. Takav izgled kose ne forsiram tokom hladnijih i tmurnih dana poput danasnjeg no cim naidje par znacajnije toplih dana, pokazati cu vam kako to izgleda. Kosa izgleda kao da sam provela dan na plazi - dosta opusteno i lijepo. Za sada samo nanosim slani sprej, osusim kosu fenom i blago je pocesljam (ne zapetljava kosu!). Naelektrisanost je pod kontrolom a ako primjetim da nakon par sati kosa gubi na obliku, samo je malo prodrmam prstima i volumen je ponovo tu. Moram reci da me ovaj sprej spasio nebrojeno puta i osvjezio kosu drugi dan nakon pranja. Spray À Porter + malo susenja fenom je dobitna kombinacija i recept za dobru kosu. Mislim da vise volim ovaj sprej i od suhih sampona, sto su velike rijeci u mom svijetu! Kérastase njega kose je fantasticna i vec planiram da ponovo kupim ovaj sprej a dodati cu i par noviteta u kosaricu. Da li ste ikada isprobale neki slani sprej?
