As much as we love to know what everyone puts on their hair, you can’t take hair product recommendations from just anyone because what works for someone else’s mane might not work for yours. However, there are some products that are so amazing, they deserve a spot in everyone’s hair care arsenal...like Kérastase’s Nutritive 8H Magic Night Serum.
Refinery29 just announced the winners of its 2019 Beauty Innovator Awards and Kérastase Nutritive 8H Magic Night Serum snagged a spot in the Best Hair Treatments category. The editors over at Refinery29 aren’t the only people who can’t get enough of this serum, however. Our senior editor Emily Arata recently added the treatment to her hair care routine and she can’t get enough!
Why is this hair serum so loved among beauty editors? It works for every hair type and helps to detangle, soften, and nourish your strands and all you have to do is apply it to your mane and go to sleep! Seriously, that’s it. The magic happens while you get your well-deserved beauty rest.
Don’t believe us? Continue reading to find out why Kérastase’s Nutritive 8H Magic Night Serum is about to become your new Holy Grail hair product.
Why Try Kérastase 8H Magic Night Hair Serum
Imagine a hair product that's literally designed to fix all your problems while you sleep. OK, so maybe 8H Magic Night Hair Serum can’t grant you an extra hour of sleep or do your taxes, but it can certainly refresh your hair in a noticeable way. I’ve used the serum (a gift from the brand) on and off for more than a month, and let me tell you: There’s a noticeable difference after the nights I was too lazy to apply it. Love doing nothing, remember?
If you, like me, love a low low maintenance beauty lifestyle, you’re the ideal candidate for 8H Magic Night Hair Serum. It’s designed to be applied to your hair directly before bed so that your strands have eight (uh, six to seven) hours soak in the formula, which helps restore nutrients and hydration to tired hair. Although I’m typically very gentle with my natural waves, I saw soft, shiny-looking hair in the morning without any stickiness or goopy feeling—something that hasn’t been the case with heavier sleeping masks I’ve tried in the past.
How To Use Kérastase 8H Magic Night Hair Serum
To put Kérastase 8H Magic Night Hair Serum to work on your own head of hair, just apply a pump of the serum to your hands, then distribute it on your damp or dry lengths and ends. Massage the product in...and that’s the most work you’ll do all night! The serum’s floral-influenced scent constantly evolves throughout the night, shifting from relaxing floral notes to energetic scents. A beauty product that also works as an alarm clock for your nose? Yeees, please.
Here’s the best part for us low-key beauty girls: in the morning, there’s no rinsing necessary. Just style your hair and go about your day as usual. I’ve been really impressed by the way this serum fits right into my normal beauty routine. There’s no crinkly, oversized sheet mask or a mysterious three-step process—just a simple application right before I drift off to sleep. In the morning, I wake up with hair that feels nourished as well as totally detangled and easy to style.
Thinking about ways to cut down the time you spend styling or—gasp!—take a laid back approach to your beauty routine? Look no further than Kérastase 8H Magic Night Hair Serum. It’s snooze button approved!
