Kenra Hair Care Review


I had the chance to work with Kenra hair care. Not only did I get to review 3 items, but they were all from the platinum line. I chose the review the Blow-Dry Spray, the recovery polish, and the recovery mask.

When the mailman brought this box to me, I was excited to open it. The bottles are so elegant and stylish and make my bathroom counter look so sophisticated. I’ve never seen any hair products with the platinum look. They are beautiful.

Platinum Blow-dry Spray



This is an amazing blow-dry spray. Not only does this protect against heat styling tools, but it also dramatically reduces the time it takes to blow dry hair.

This is so many things in one. It smooths, detangles, AND helps to keep the humidity OUT while preventing frizz. I had been having problems with my hair becoming damaged from blow-drying and straightening it too much, so I wanted to find something to help me out with this.

You wash and condition your hair as usual, towel-dry it until it’s damp and then spritz this all over your hair. Wait a second for your hair to absorb it, and then comb from your roots to the ends.

Then you can either go straight to blow-drying your hair. I wait 5 minutes before blow-drying it though. The longer you wait to blow-dry it, the less damaged it will become.

This bottle isn’t like a hair spray spritz though, it feels more like a body spray nozzle- that way you aren’t getting an aerosol spray. You can spritz as much or as little as you need to and get amazing results.

I have been using this now for about 2-3 weeks, and I am happy with the results. I am absolutely HOOKED on this spray. My hair is extremely soft and manageable, while it doesn’t even take me 10 minutes to blow-dry my extremely long medium thickness hair.

Before using Kenra- it would take me possibly 25-30 minutes to not have one wet spot on my head. AND my hair would poof right up, so I would have to straighten it right after blow-drying it. This is what led to the damage in the first place.

I have definitely noticed a change in how my hair looks after it’s blow-dried. It is smooth, silky to the touch, and there isn’t any frizz AT ALL. It smells amazing, and helps eliminate the coarse split ends without weighing it down and making it look oily.

You can buy this product in 3 different sizes. $13.00 for 1.7 fl. oz. , $22.00 for 3.4 oz., or $33.00 for 6.8 oz.


Platinum Recovery Polish


You rub this silky cream into the palm of your hands until it becomes clear. You can rub this all over your hair, or just at the ends, depending on where you need it.

This is an ultra lightweight leave in treatment. This is amazing at recovering hair from it’s dry damaged state. It also keeps humidity from frizzing hair for 20 hours!

You can reapply this as needed, so it’s great that it is a thin bottle. I can toss this into my purse and take it with me to the waterpark (chlorine can be horrible for hair). So after I get out, I rub some in (all over my hair) and don’t have to worry about the damage from the chlorine or exposure to the sun.

I used this in damp hair and used it on dry hair. When I got out of the shower one night and was too tired to do anything but crash- I woke up the next morning and rubbed some of this into my hair before straightening it.

It was amazing because my hair was twice as shiny and smooth as it would have been if I’d just straightened it regularly. It kept the tiny little hairs that poke up everywhere down. My hair looked so amazing and felt so strong, not (almost) brittle as it was becoming! AND this product smells amazing!

It is made with essential vitamins and minerals to fight dehydration in the hair and smooth the damaged cuticle layer (outside) of hair to give it a natural beautiful silky smooth shine with natural movement. There was absolutely no oiliness, greasiness, or frizz!

You can buy this product for $22 for 1.7 oz. bottle.


Platinum Recovery Mask


If you have dry, damaged hair and are currently looking for a mask to help those dry, dehydrated locks- YOU’VE found it. I was totally amazed at this mask. Usually masks leave my hair looking like I haven’t had a bath in months.

Not this one- it revitalized and restored my hair without one BIT of greasiness at all. I am in LOVE. My hair has made a 100% turn around with these three products. I couldn’t have made a better choice when choosing something to help me out.

My hair looks like it wasn’t even damaged in the first place. My hair looks thicker, has more shine, and even more volume. The reason this product helps so much better than the other brands is because it’s infused with proteins that fortify, repair, and protect the hair shaft.

It helps to reduce the amount of breakage that hair has, which has made my hair look so healthy. It gets down to the deepest parts of the hair strands with the natural oils that are in it.. so it isn’t just making me think it’s working- it’s actually doing it’s job!

It also helps scalp problems. I have really dry scalp which can turn extremely itchy and irritating. When I put this in my hair, I made sure to rub it all the way down to the root into the scalp.

You leave this in for 3-5 minutes (after shampooing) and then rinse with warm water. You can use this daily, weekly, or bi-weekly depending on how damaged your hair is. My hair was pretty bad off because I wasn’t only blow-drying it, but I was straightening it right after- which led to my non-split end hair becoming full of split ends and looking horribly damaged.

This can be used for any and all hair types. Whether you just need some extra TLC, you straighten and blow-dry it, you’ve permed it, or colored it- this is like the milk to the cookies. This is exactly what my hair needed to retain moisture, lock in softness while locking out frizz.

It also has color care complex ingredients in it, so if you HAVE colored your hair- this will help hold your hair color longer. So you aren’t having to dye it even more than you should have to.

Very awesome product all the way around! This has been a terrific hair (and life) saving treatment for me. Being in the south with all the humidity and heat hasn’t made an impact at all on what this amazingly magic mask can do!
