Lovely Locks: Why I’m Swooning for the Dutch Brand Keune

There’s nothing like a bouncy, beautiful mane, my FWABulous friends. And thanks to haircare products from Keune, my locks have been looking pretty darn lovely! 

As you realize when you read my “About” page, there are many facets to my wellness plan. One of them is when I look good, I feel good. So, finding the right beauty products, treatments, etc. is key to said plan.

Recently, the good people at Keune sent me a variety of products to try (so FYI, the products were complimentary), based on the info I provided about my hair type. Basically, I have a pretty thick head of hair that is prone to becoming very wavy if not blown out with a round brush. 

A little about the brand… It got its start in the early 1920s in The Netherlands with its formula for a liquid perm. These days, Keune offers a variety of product lines for men and women that are available in salons around the world including the CARE and BLEND lines, which I tried. 

Out of the products sent my way, here are my faves: 

  • CARE Keratin Smooth 2-Phase Spray. I loved this product for a few reasons… First, I spray it on prior to blow drying my hair with a round brush, and it ensures that my locks are frizz-free post blowout. I’ve also used it on my dry hair to smooth it out (when I’ve let it air dry) to put it up in a bun.  

  • CARE Keratin Smooth Silkening Polish. This cream served a similar function to the spray and worked well. The little pump container is a bit more convenient for travel than the spray.

  • CARE Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. I liked the subtle scent of these products and how they smoothed my mane out.

FYI, with my hair, what worked best was to use the shampoo and conditioner OR the spray or polish. When I tried to use the shampoo and conditioner and the spray or polish for my blowout, I noticed that the effect of the smoothing properties worked a bit too well — and left my hair with less body than I like. Depending on your hair type, it could be a different result, though.
