Kallos Latte Protein Mask: An Amazing Protein Conditioner

Kallos Latte Protein Hair Mask

     This conditioner has been sent to me by my lovely hair-care guru Anwen. It's a hit on the Polish hair-care community and I was dying to test it out!

    My hair absolutely loves proteins, and the Kallos Latte mask leaves my hair shiny, bouncy and full of volume.  I leave it on for at leat half an hour, and always follow it up with moisturiser, otherwise proteins leave my hair a bit stiff and crunchy. Obviously it will work for you only if your hair likes protein. Mine can't get enough of it. I noticed that Kallos Latte can weight the hair down if you use too much on the hair, so apply only as much as necessary.
    The Kallos Latte Mask also seems to last for ever -- I have been using this regularly and the container seems bottomless. I'm not a huge fan of the smell -- a chemical coconut-vanilla pudding, but then again I dislike the smell of almost everything that isn't a natural cosmetic. I know that some girls love the smell.

    It cost roughly 5€ (a very big tub), though I know that the price varies. Anwen bought it for me in a store for hairdresser supplies in Krakow and it's also available via multidrogeria.pl . Readers in Germany and Austria  can get it from iparfumerie.at / or .de while Hungarians might probably learn something useful here. I imagine it is available in many European countries, especially those neighbouring Hungary -- just try googling.

Kallos Latte Protein Hair Mask

Ingredients (INCI):

Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Dipamytoylethyl Hydroxyethylomonium Methosulfate, Parfum, Propylene Glycol, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, PEG- 5 Cocomonium Methosulfate, Methylisothiazolinone, Sodium Glutamate, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hydrolized Casein, Hydrolized Milk Protein, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, 5-Bromo-5-Nitro-1,3-Dioxane.

     I love how this works, however it is not my ideal cosmetic because of the ingredient list. The perfume as well as Methylchloroisothiazolinone are a bit too high up on the ingredient list, and may irritate.  I will be testing some protein conditioners from natural brands and I hope that I can find a more natural and cruelty-free substitute.

    Do you have any protein-rich hair treatments to recommend? Does your hair like protein?
