DIVO tries out – Sunsilk Kerantinology

When it comes to handling hairy situations, you’ve got a few rules:
1. Shampoo only every third day.
2. Limit blowouts to very special occasions.
3. Go easy on the straightening iron.
But things begin to change to change as we discovered the Sunsilk Keratinology. This range claims to prolong the beauty of salon treated hair. The name Keratinology comes from the fact that the range uses Keratin Micro Technology to reconstruct the hair surface.

We heard a ton of good reviews about the range. Even from ELLE’s former Beauty Editor Kadambari Lakhani. She says, “The products in this range leave your hair soft and manageable. It’s especially good in the humidity because it greatly reduces the frizz and flyaway hair. It’s the next best thing to a salon treatment and also extends the effects of salon treatments if you’ve already had one.”

So we finally decided to give it a try. We put our trust in three products from the range and tried them for a whole week. And these are our findings:

Sunsilk Keratinology Advanced Reconstruction Program Detoxifying Shampoo, Rs.200

WHAT IT IS: An intensive repair shampoo that boosts shine
WHAT IT DOES: Gently cleans and hydrates and helps prevent breakage
KEY INGREDIENT: Sodium laureth sulfate (cleanser)
HOW IT FEELS/SMELLS/LOOKS: The packaging makes it easy to uses while the pleasant scent stays in hair all day long.
WHY WE LIKE IT: It's gentle, but can get out two days worth of product buildup in one wash, and it doesn't leave hair dull or dry.

Sunsilk Keratinology Advanced Damage Reconstruction Program Dual Treatment Shots Rs.300

WHAT IT IS: A two-step at-home treatment for severely damaged hair.
WHAT IT DOES: Helps replenish protein in damaged hair, smoothens hair, reduces frizz and gives it a shine.
KEY INGREDIENTS: Step 1 contains Lactic acid (which is also a natural constituent of the hair, and is an excellent pH regulator and moisturizer); Step 2 contains Stearic acid (It coats the hair shaft, giving it condition and protection without making it dull or heavy).
HOW IT FEELS/SMELLS/LOOKS: There are two tubes in the kit. Step 1 is to be applied to the mid-lengths and ends just like a conditioner but is to be rinsed off thoroughly after 1 minute. Step 2 is a clear, runny leave-in serum, is opaque and semithick with a pleasant fragrance.
WHY WE LIKE IT: The ingredients lock hair into its new healthy shape for up to 5 days without damage, In our test, hair definitely got sleek, shiny, and less frizzy after this treatment.

Sunsilk Keratinology Advanced Reconstruction Program Heat Protector Spray Rs.400
WHAT IT IS: A heat protective hair spray 
WHAT IT DOES: The UV filters provides advance heat protection from styling gadgets and even the sun 
KEY INGREDIENTS: Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate (UV filter)
HOW IT FEELS/SMELLS/LOOKS: This superfine aerosol mist has the typical but faint hair spray scent.
WHY WE LIKE IT: Its UV filters coat and protect the feeblest of strands, but it's also perfect for healthy heads: It leaves hair soft, bouncy, and natural-looking (not lacquered) and is especially great on bangs.
Tip: Use it before blow-drying, straightening session, on a sunny day or even to tame frizz.
