Once upon a time... long ago in college... I was lucky enough to spend a summer abroad in Rome. There were two things I discovered... an appreciation of an authentic Italian Chianti table wine and Kerastase Masquintense. I bought a jar and made that 200 ml last forever. When it ran out, I couldn't bring myself to spend more than $50 on a hair product again. Fast forward several years and I'm preggo. Though my hair was growing at the fastest rate ever and was thick and wonderful, it was a bit straw-like. Time to bite the bullet and make the investment. So worth it! One application and my hair was back to being glossy, soft and it made me feel super sexy. I buy the kind for fine hair, but it's available for thick hair as well. Either way, you'll love it.
