I recently had this idea that I wanted to get chocolate brown highlights. I don't know why. I've had highlights before and it made me seem like my grandmother and I were sisters. I thought chocolate brown wouldn't be too shocking and so decided against all the omens to do it. It was almost like the calamities that ensued before the Trojans took the wooden horse into the city walls: everything pointed to disaster. And sure enough, the hairstylist didn't know what to do with my hair, fried it, and made it a total of five different shades which were all in the brassy range (the entire process took almost half a day. again, I need to be able to read the warnings). To fix this, I dyed my hair back to black. And sure enough my hair took a beating.
The tube is fairly costly at $38 a tube but I've been using the same tube for well over a year on and off and religiously nowadays. I squeeze a dime sized amount onto my palms and work it into my wet hair, starting from the ends. I style as usual (blow dry), and I am left with soft, bouncy hair that is getting a lot of TLC.
My hair is normally quite oily and so I used to use Nectar Thermique very sparingly. Even now, when my hair is a slightly drier, I use only a slightly bigger amount. A little goes a long way and really helps in protecting your hair from harsh styling. I have seen a noticeable difference in how my hair is now compared to how it was when I came out of the salon, wishing to shave my hair in shame.
Nectar Thermique also gives me a good amount of shine, so I don't feel compelled to add any more products to my routine. This product seems to do most of what I need for styling (other than the occasional root lifting). I don't think I will ever stray from this product, as I'm pretty loyal when products work this well. I highly recommend this if you're looking for an awesome product that really delivers and takes care of your hair.
