Every now and then, I come across a new product that I just have to try. Recently I had the opportunity to try the Kenra Professional Platinum Revive collection. Kenra is a salon brand haircare line, and the Platinum Revive collection helps repair and strengthen hair, especially hair that is damaged from color treatments.
Shampoo, Conditioner, Treatment, Oil and Complex.
The first part of my routine was to shampoo and condition my hair. It was definitely not what I expected or was used to. The shampoo seemed to strip my hair, but the conditioner added back the softness and smoothness that my hair needed. The scent was earthy and rather manly, so I was not a fan of that. The treatment is somewhat like a deep conditioner, and can be used occasionally in place of the conditioner.
While my hair was still damp, I applied two to three pumps of the Complex starting at the middle of my hair and down to the ends. That smoothed my hair while it air dried, and I followed up with a little of the oil to define my curls and finish off the look. I didn't mind the scent of these products as much, though they were similar to the shampoo and conditioner.
I have big wavy/curly hair full of frizz, so it is definitely a challenge to find products that work. I have to say, the Platinum Revive line came through and added definition to my hair and brought back the natural curl. Unfortunately the weather here was wet and humid both times I sampled this, so I couldn't get rid of all of my frizz (see above photo, hehe) but I was impressed with my experience. I would consider getting this again if the scent was changed as that is a huge deciding factor for me!
I received these products complimentary from Brandbacker and Kenra in exchange for an honest review. All opinions shared above are my own.
