A model’s hair really takes a beating during fashion month–at one show she’ll get her hair braided into a rosette, then at the next show a blow dryer on full blast for a super sleek look, until the last show of the day when a curling iron is used to create a tight crimp, recalling the 90s. Repeat every day for seven days and it’s no surprise that by the end, a model’s hair is as tired as she is. While your hair may not take quite the same beating, we’re willing to bet it could use a perk-up.
Like the famous Cher song goes, if only there was a way we could turn back time. And there is: L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm, a rinse-out hair mask that repairs up to one year of damage in one single use. When used in conjunction with the Total Repair line, the five most common types of damage–split ends, weakness, roughness, dullness, and dehydration–are eradicated.
In just minutes, your hair’s protein structure can be repaired, bringing back the glossy, bouncy, sleek, shiny, full of body hair of yesteryear (or month), erasing the damage caused by excessive heat styling, cold office hair, and product build-up.
Here’s how to do it: Apply L’Oreal Paris’ Damage-Erasing Balm (it has a cooling gel-like texture) to wet hair, twist it into a bun, watch a video of supermodels doing the Harlem Shake (just minutes), and rinse out with cold water. To avoid breaking the cuticle layer, lightly dry your hair using a microfiber towel, and then shake out your hair to re-enact that shampoo commercial you’ve always imagined starring in. Feel the immediate change in texture.
Not bad for just a few minutes.
