Goldwell Kerasilk brings shine and control even to the hair we hate

Goldwell Haircare is the creator of many fine products including color, styling, shampoo/conditioner, dry shampoo, and the list goes on. It’s one of the highest regarded names in hair care available today. We were given the opportunity to try out the Kerasilk line which we were thrilled about. Lisa already knew and loved Goldwell but it’s a new line for Marcia. Kerasilk has unique ingredients like engineered Keratin and lightweight silk that contribute to the integrity of the products.

KERASILK

Kerasilk is the new, revolutionary luxury hair care line that delivers long-lasting hair transformations providing beauty, strength and protection. The secret: the KT3 combination of engineered Keratin, lightweight silk and high-performing KeraShape Technology with Glyoxilic Acid.

Little did I know that when I met Lisa for our monthly meetup that she would be drooling when I handed over her Goldwell Kerasilk product to use and review. I think if we’d been close to my house she would have driven over to take mine away from me. Even though I’ve heard of Goldwell and wanted to try the line, it just never happened for me. But now I have to hide my two goodies from my pal!

GOLDWELL KERASILK RECONSTRUCT RESTORATIVE BALM is the daily balm from them and it’s doing wonders for my hair. I like to get my hair professionally straightened but it’s been over a year since I’ve had the time or money to do so. Therefore a product known for its innovative use of keratin is something I appreciate.

Since I use heat on my hair daily I welcome this new version of Reconstruct as it helps with the severe frizzies as well as protects my hair from that heat. It has a fragrance that doesn’t last long (although I’ll notice it later if my hair gets damp) and it helps me wet brush through my hair after applying it. Not only that but it has color protection to it also. It’s not a very thick balm but I don’t need much more than a flat quarter size to get my shoulder length hair ready for drying. It can be used on dry hair but I haven’t tried it that way. My hair stays smooth and managed throughout the day.

GOLDWELL KERASILK CONTROL INTENSIVE SMOOTHING MASK is my heavy-duty babe. This is for the hair I hate – frizzy, out of control, and just plain fugly. But after a weekly dose of this mask my hair is back to smoothness again.

I appreciate this smoothing mask more than I can say. My hair becomes shiny and easy to style with it. I can feel it protecting my hair from heat. I notice less fragrance from Control than I do with Reconstruct, surely because I wash it out.

Directions say to apply this to wet or towel dried hair, leave it in for 5-10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. I do it all in one step in the shower so on the days I’m going to use Control I wash my hair first, apply this mask and then keep my head out of the water. I leave it in for at least 5 minutes (more if my shower doesn’t decide to run out of warm water), then rinse. I personally don’t use the balm on the same day but use another one so that my nose won’t get overwhelmed.

See that cool super size spatula? It comes nestled in the top of the jar lid so that your fingers don’t contaminate the product – or in my case, get the mask under my fingernails. You can see too that it’s thick but not too thick. You know you are getting more enrichment from this intensive mask than you would from a conditioner.

My results are great with both products. Great enough that I’m not inviting Lisa over to my new house unless I hide these away.

Oh yeah…when I saw this, I looked at Marcia and said, “I have literally spent THOUSANDS of dollars on Goldwell Kerasilk products!! They are amazing!!!” Then I demanded that she hand over every new product we get from here on out. We shall see if she honors my demands!

Repower Volume Foam Conditioner is definitely different from any hair product I have ever tried before. I thought it was a hair mousse…then I thought it was leave-in conditioner. But it’s neither. It’s a foam conditioner that is applied to wet hair after shampooing. You leave it in for two minutes, then rinse.

This is what I consider a specialty hair product. It’s not going to work for everyone. It works for me, because I have fine hair that tends to be limp. It needs some volume and a little ‘oomph’. If you have fine hair, you will love this – it gives hair texture, body, and resilience without weighing it down. What it doesn’t do is make hair soft and shiny, so if that’s what you want, check out the products Marcia reviewed (and is giving to me because SHE PROMISED ME!!!)

I definitely had fun using the Repower Volume Foam Conditioner.  I mean, just look at that foam….it looks like shaving cream, whipped cream, and hair mousse all got together and had a baby! I sooo wanted to give myself a Santa mustache and beard just for fun before I used it properly. And since there were no witnesses, I’m not admitting to anything.

Ultimately, I had lots of volume and texture without having to use any other styling products. Goldwell Kerasilk is a tremendous line with hair products that address every hair need that exists, so be sure to take a look and see what they have to offer that will turn the hair you hate into the hair you love.

    Oh I love that and my hair could need that.

  2. Gabrielle says:

    That Volume Foam Conditioner sounds like my DREAM conditioner! I have to get it.

  3. I have not tried this brand yet. Would love to try the Reconstruct Restorative Balm. I color my hair regularly and I am always on the hunt for hair treatment products.

  4. gloria patterson says:

    WOW this stuff sounds good… I had so much damaged, dry breaking hair that I decided to cut it. Over 6 months I had over 8 inches cut off and stopped coloring my hair. It is looking good on the breaking and dry BUT it is so dull looking no shine. Sounds like this is something I need

  5. Ooh this sounds like therapy for my hair… I am always looking for something to keep the frizzies in check and give me smooth silky straight hair.

  6. I haven’t tried anything from Goldwell in a long time, but I used to love the brand. The mask sounds fantastic. I did try a foam conditioner from another high-end brand but it wasn’t hydrating enough for me so I used it as shave cream. At any rate, there’s a lot to love here!

  7. I used Goldwell dye for years but recently moved to another brand. However, I really love the hair mask – I’ve always wanted to try one but just haven’t had the chance yet!

  8. I’ve never tried anything from this brand but if i do, it sounds like my hair will get a spa treatment.

  9. I love a good hair mask/conditioning treatment (just did one yesterday while I did chores around the house). Hair products are my weakness of beauty products! I have a huge container full of them. <3 Great review!

  10. I’ve never heard of this brand, but it sounds fantastic. I like the look of the foam conditioner.

  11. A foaming conditioner sounds so interesting because I also have fine hair and most conditioners weigh it down

  12. I don’t think I’ve tried any Goldwell products before, but I think that intensive smoothing mask would be a good start, with how much I abuse my hair, it could really benefit from that product Haha

  13. Very interesting! I don’t think I’ve tried a foam conditioner before. It’s a really good idea, since conditioner can be really hard to spread evenly over tangled wet hair.

  14. Quite jealous! I just placed an order for a Goodwill conditioner, my hair is so dry. This is good to know that you liked these.

  15. Mary Dailey says:

    I have been wanting to try this! Thanks for the great review!

  16. Lacquerexpression says:

    I’m very selective when it comes to hair products due to having very coarse hair, but these high end products sound interesting.

  17. My hair is definitely in need for these products. Will have to give them a try.

  18. I kind of want that conditioner because I’ve never seen one like it!

  19. Oh I’m going to need these. I’m going to bookmark this post. The colors that I use on my hair are by Goldwell. I love their products.

  20. Ehmkay nails says:

    Foam conditioner??! Sounds awesome.

  21. This is a interesting topic.

  22. My Nail Polish Obsession says:

    Wow, that stuff sounds uber luxurious.

  23. This looks amazing! Right now I am going through a period of straw-dry ends and greasy scalp – I need to up my product game.
