If one thing I can say about my mom is that she is a hair product hoarder. She loves to buy products from different brands and combine them and create her custom care regimen.
I'm happy that she does that: I provide her the nail polish & makeup and she provides me with lots of hair care products to try - WIN! :D
Esika Look & Care Leave-In Styling Cream (with Keratech Complex) is a product designed to complement your straightening shampoo & conditioner routine. Acording to product description it removes frizz, reduces volume, adds shine, protect ends and helps to prolong the lasting of your flat iron or blow-out.
retail price: $8 for 6.7 fl. oz.
Indications of use are very simple: just apply over towel dry hair from the middle of your hair to the roots in a descending movement; then style it as you wish.
I have used it more than 5 times by now; putting it trough the test of super crazy weather changes here in Puerto Rico. I trimmed my ends for the last time in July last year -mom is very offended by this hair-sin of mine- and I was surprised at how less horribly looking my ends where. My Thyroid condition makes my hair weak, more fine that it naturally is and totally destroys my ends; but this product seems to camouflage this flaws pretty darn well! I like to alternate between blower and flat iron or use both when climate is extra crazy, but I was still able to conserve some volume; so I don't end up looking bald.
Its scent is a mild mix between fruity and flowery, nothing overpowering. In terms of how much to apply this varies depending on length and how much hair you have. I like to part my hair in half and start with nickel sized pearls and distribute, putting special attention to my scary dry ends.
I can say that this is a Randon Stash-mom approved product! ;)
