Your Hair's New Secret Weapon
When it comes to haircare, there's been a huge swing in our approach to hair, how we care for it, and have it perform at its optimum. Borrowing from Korean skin care secrets, Kenra Professional's Snail CC Creme is enriched with snail essence, a highly concentrated blend of proteins proven to awaken the youth in hair. That's right, you read correctly- SNAIL cream! This unique leave-in creme weightlessly restores and prolongs youth by fighting all 10 signs of aging hair: Dulling, Thinning, Breakage, Frizz, Dryness, Elasticity, Porosity, Scalp irritation, Unmanageability, and Coarse texture.
Why Snail Cream?
Snail extract, formally referred to as snail mucin, is packed with nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes, proteoglycans and antimicrobial and copper peptides, all of which are commonly used in beauty products and proven to be beneficial for the skin. Believe it or not, this extract is commonly used in many skin care brands but under a different name to avoid an "ick" factor. Snail mucin's ingredients are known to be anti-aging by stimulating the formation of collagen and elastin, repair damaged skin, and restore hydration. Kenra Professional Brand Manager, Stephanie Smith, was a huge fan of the immediate effects her masks and skin care products that touted Snail mucin as an ingredient worked and wondered if it would be just as effective in hair. Turns out she was right- after working with Kenra Professional chemists to create the perfect blend they created the Snail CC Cream. Lightweight and lightly scented, it's become the perfect hair styling prep product.
Does It Work?
I was able "test drive" the Snail CC Cream before it's big launch. I'm a HUGE fan of Kenra Professional's products but I was admittedly skeptical of the claims. I applied it to damp hair as per instructions to half of the head and another side with no product. I noticed an immediate difference in manageability between the two sides and an even bigger difference in shine and softness once I was completely done drying my model's hair. Most other products I've relied on for similar effects I felt were heavy or didn't cocktail as well with other products I wanted to use. Not the case here- true to it's claims the hair felt healthy, looked shiny, and felt smooth but still full of volume and clean. It was a win.
Do I Need It?
If you have highlights, prone to dryness, dullness or tangled hair this is for you. Perfect for the "on the go" girl (and boys!) that want a one stop shop for a lightweight, airy finish product that delivers what it promises. Once you get over the "ick" factor of Snail Mucin you'll never want to be without it.
