As you know this has been the year for Korean beauty. For good reason, they've easily introduced some of the best skin care and makeup tips, tricks, and secrets we've seen in a very long time. They're here to stay and I couldn't be happier because seriously, some of the things they've introduced into the skin care game has been well.....game changing. Plus it always seems like their products are so much fun. Like the carbonated bubble mask (that works), the flower lipsticks that adjusts to your body temperature, and so on. They have new, ingenius, and all out different ways of approaching beauty and I love that. They didn't just stop at makeup and skincare though they're in the hair care world too.
Another one of their beauty secrets is "Snail Essence". Ok so lets talk about snails and the benefits they offer. First of all, I hate snails. I'm just gonna put that out there. I don't know why, but they gross me out. However, for the love of skincare, makeup, or hair care I will research good products for you and try most everything that isn't dangerous. So Snail cream is actually something that is pretty common in a lot of skin care. A lot of what you see though is just similar things that mimic snail "essence", it's not like people are breeding them for their goods. No snails are harmed in the making of these products. So the snail enzyme is a "high-efficacy active ingredient comprised of proteins, glycolic acids and elastin" it's dereived from the same thing snails use to heal cuts on their bodies from rough surfaces. In beauty products it restores moisture and supports cell regeneration. You see Snail Mucin in a lot of skin care products lately because it's also big in the anti-aging process, as well as restoring pigmentation and also healing scars. Thus also giving you unbelievable softness.
So where does this come into hair care you might ask? Well it's simple, it's like an anti-aging treatment for your hair. Restoring your hair to it's healthiest, most youthful appearance. Snail Essence is mainly a ton of proteins and elastin, which is great for hair. To help with breakage, shine, growth, and so on. Everything that you put in your body comes out through your hair. So all the meds you have to take, the diet that your on, what you're drinking, it all comes out through the hair shaft so to keep our hair looking it's best we have to alter what we take into our body as well as how we treat our hair. Thus we need to take a bit more time treating the hair, rather than just a weekly hair mask or whatever.
So the new Kenra Snail CC Cream we're gonna talk about today is the first hair product of it's kind to be infused with "snail essence" it's a 10 in 1 corrective cream (cc cream) that is weightless and restores hair youth and fights the 10 signs of aging hair. So we take time to make sure our skin isn't aging, why not our hair?
I'm gonna insert the key benefits right here of what this cream does:
- Boosts shine
- Increases thickness
- Reduces breakage
- Tames frizz & flyaways
- Hydrates hair
- Improves elasticity
- Relieves scalp irritation
- Increases manageability
- Decreases coarseness for noticeably softer strands
- Provides heat protection
- Paraben and sulfate free
- For all hair types
You apply this evenly through damp or dry hair. Style as you wish. It retails for $25, has 2.5 oz, and in a pump style tube. Which I really like. It smells AMAZING. It also feels really weightless. Even using it in dry hair it's super light and weightless. I use two pumps in my hair when it's dry and use it from the mid-shaft down, and I have relatively long hair. It immediately feels soft and becomes more managable. With my hair wet I use about 4 pumps to coat from scalp to ends. So I'm really enjoying this and I see results very quickly with it.
This became available in Ulta stores andUlta.com in September. Kenra is a very trusted professional hair care brand, that I've used many times. I love their hot spray and finishing sprays. Plus they smell amazing.
