BEAUTY BATTLES: Best Hair Leave-In Product
Ever since I started using hair leave-on products-particularly these two-they've become an important part of my regular hair care routine. Once you start coloring your hair, the undesirable dryness is inevitable and will become part of your life so this is where treatment products such as these come in.
Bedhead's After Party and Kerastase's Elixir Ultime are my most favorite hair leave- in products. They're both amazing and super popular in their own right, but one will always be superior to the other. If you've been eyeing both products, but you're torn on what to get, then let this Beauty Battles blog post help you out.
After Party (P1,720.00) is a personal favorite of Angelina Jolie, as well as various beauty editors and aficionados internationally. It garnered raves in Makeupalley, and is tagged as one of Marie Claire magazine's 25 PRODUCTS THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Elixir Ultime (P2,260.00), on the other hand, is what Kerastase is known for-it is the world's best- selling hair oil, selling 1 bottle every 1.2 seconds on a daily basis. Both products are meant to tame flyaways, smooth hair, and add shine.

Both products are housed in a plastic bottle. Bedhead's bottle is a pain to bring around: It's too long, a little chunky, and the bulb- shaped cap is too space- consuming. Kerastase's bottle is more travel- friendly between the two. However, the problem with Kerastase is, its main pump does not come with any cover, and there's always the risk of spillage even if it has an open-close option. Bedhead's pump has a separate cap, and it's the type that doesn't get pressed down easily. I'm all for portability so the point goes to Kerastase.
Bedhead is just a plain hair smoother, while Kerastase is infused with outstanding, beneficial oils that will help improve your hair's texture in the long run. I'd have to give it to Kerastase because it's not only a beautifying product, but a treatment as well.
TEXTURE AND CONSISTENCY
Bedhead is made from a unique, light, non- oily type of cream, while Kerastase is made from a combination of various, lightweight oils that mimic the hair's natural sebum. Bedhead could feel a little thick if layered on and takes a while to be absorbed, but Kerastase stays lightweight all- throughout and dries up quickly. I prefer anything light so another point goes to Kerastase!
Bedhead has A yummy fruity scent, while this particular Kerastase Elixir Ultime has a scent that is inspired by Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. I love Coco Chanel Mademoiselle so Kerastase wins here!
ON HAIR UP-DOS
Bedhead acts instantaneously on the smoothing department, and it works well whether you want to wear your hair down or in a sleeker up-do. Meanwhile, Kerastase takes a while to produce its initial effects on the hair and it can't really hold any hairstyles in place-it only works best on free flowing hair. I like sporting the classic ponytail and I find that After Party is the best product to use on this type of hairstyle, so one point goes to Bedhead!
Bedhead is just a plain smoothing product, while Kerastase can be used as a hair conditioner alternative, heat protectant, and detangling product. I think it's obvious which product has triumphed in this department. :)
The win is based on the usefulness of the product and how it has affected my hair's texture and overall look. Kerastase just did it for me because it has significantly improved the condition of my damaged hair ever since I started using it. Both products actually suit my fine, straight hair, but I find that it fares better with Kerastase Elixir Ultime.
