Kérastase Fondant Densité

At Barry’s Hair Studio, we have always been fans of the Kérastase range and now we’ve
fallen in love with one of their new wonder products.. introducing “Fondant Densité” from
the Densifique collection.

The light, featherlike creamy care formula adds body and substance to hair that is visibly
lacking density. Hair is also left glossy without weighing down the hair.

One of the secret ingredients is Stemoxydine® which helps provide a healthy environment
for the scalp to encourage dormant hair follicles to grow. With regular use, your hair:
– Feels fuller
– More nourished
– It reduces the rate of hair loss
– The scalp feels soothed

To use, apply 2-3 hazelnut size quantity of the product after the Bain Densité . Distribute
strand by strand massaging the product into the fibre and the scalp. Leave in the hair for 1-2
minutes and rinse thoroughly.

Hair loss as well as hair thinning can be a major issue for some people and the Densifique
range from Kérastase allows for complete treatment and protection of fine hair that lacks
density through a choice of 5 products, all developed using state-of-the-art formulations and a
decade of relentless hair loss research.
The Kérastase Densifique range is now available here at Barry’s Hair Studio. For personal
advice on the most effective products to use on your hair, call in and speak with our
Kérastase expert.

A new solution for Damaged Hair!

At Barry’s Hair Studio we are continually sourcing the newest technology in hair care products and the Kérastase Résistance Therapiste range is a breakthrough solution for damaged hair!

Described as “a second chance for your hair” it works by rebuilding the internal substance of hair weakened by chemical or mechanical aggressions to restore its strength and solidity. The range has been customised to deal with both fine and thick hair, leaving your tresses silky smooth with body and movement.

What’s makes this salon exclusive range so unique is the research into KAPs (Keratin Associated Proteins). These tiny proteins link keratins in our hair to each other and attach them together. When hair becomes damaged, these proteins disappear, which deconstructs the internal architecture of the hair fibre and leads to its gradual collapse. The Kérastase Résistance Therapiste range repairs and recreates the quality of hair from the inside out. Give your hair the second life it deserves!

The full range is stocked here at Barry’s Hair Studio where our Kérastase advisors are always on hand to prescribe the correct products for your hair type. For further information visit the salon or call (091) 561392.
